Well, This Explains A Lot About Rep. Weiner

May 28, 2011
By

Geebus, a Streetsblog post from August 15, 2007 even comes with a video in which he's carrying a big stick! You think they were trying to tell us something?

Where's the beef? Under Rep. Anthony Weiner's plan, vehicles, like (this one) would not be charged a fee to use New York City's most heavily...

Romney and Pawlenty Channel Palin With Latest Campaign Moves

May 27, 2011
By

Yesterday, Mitt Romney sent left-over pizza to Obama's Chicago HQ. Meanwhile, Tim Pawlenty Tweeted Barack Obama.

@BarackObama sorry to interrupt the European pub crawl, but what was your Medicare plan?

The moves are fun and fine; I'm not looking to criticize either man, nor suggest they somehow directly ripped off Palin. But what...

NRO’s Sexist Shot At Sarah Palin

May 27, 2011
By

I like Jim Geraghty. He's a good guy and a fine analyst. Still, however subtle it might be, the sexism in his latest on Sarah Palin stood out for me. At some point every politician considering a run for the Presidency discusses the strain of it all, as well as the...

Marco Rubio, “a man in a field of mice”

May 26, 2011
By

"I have been in the Senate just long enough to be disgusted by the reality that Washington has too many people who think their personal political careers are more important than our country’s future," says GOP rising star Marco Rubio, upstaging the Democrats and their media fellow travelers in the "MediScare"...

A Few Important Points On The Caller’s Direct Message Non-Story

May 24, 2011
By

As it's hitting Memeorandum, I want to make a couple of relevant points I either haven't yet seen addressed elsewhere, or that involve me personally. I've had my differences with the aide in question, Rebecca Mansour. Not many, but there was a time when I thought we might not speak, again. That goes way...

Breaking: Tucker Carlson To Give Head On Pennsylvania Avenue

May 24, 2011
By

Honestly, some people will do anything for attention. I'm not linking the Caller story in question. I didn't really see anything much to get all that worked up over in it, under the circumstances. But then, I doubt I'd get worked up over a hack like Carlson, or his boy-toy Jonathan Strong giving...

Boy Band, Mitch Daniels And The Hapless Republicans Breaks Up, Will Perry Run?

May 23, 2011
By

In a very real sense, the GOP is in such disarray headed toward 2012 because of what's happened to the Democrats. This from Byron York is about what one would expect from the GOP establishment. If an establishment GOP politician is in, or gets in, that's to be taken seriously. All those other,...

Palin on 2012: “The fire in the belly, that’s there.”

May 21, 2011
By

Sarah Palin famously said a few days ago that "The fire in the belly, that's there."

For me, I think it's indicative that she is leaning at a run, and I think this is her best time to run.

Mitch Daniels Is Unelectable

May 20, 2011
By

With friends like Conor with one N, Mitch Daniels probably doesn't need enemies within the conservative base.

Everything is upside down in the Republican primaries. The GOP establishment is rallying behind a principled candidate with a proven conservative track record. That's upsetting the conservative base: on talk radio and right wing blogs, they...

She explains in detail why she supports his plan.

Elite? More Like, Pathetic GOP Pushing Daniels, While Begging A Loser To Run

May 18, 2011
By

The usual suspects, no doubt Rove has his hands on some strings, as well. If they're so damned elite, why are they reduced to begging a guy with foot in mouth disease to run, at the same time they're beating the media drum for him?

The fact is, he can't do that...

Via Mark Levin's Facebook page. Read the rest there but also see below. Matt deserves to be called out big time on this one.

Oh, now I get it! It was a news story on Michele Bachmann.

I am told Lewis was on WMAL radio in Washington, DC complaining about the criticism he received from...

Understanding Newt Gingrich’s Statement On Ryan’s Plan

May 17, 2011
By

Yesterday, Rush Limbaugh said he couldn't explain Newt Gingrich's statement on the Ryan plan, particularly as regards MediCare - calling it inexplicable (video). I believe I can explain it, which is not the same as defending it. Glenn offers up a few disapproving links today. No doubt there are many.

Here's the...
