Oh, this is priceless. I intended to address it more seriously
tomorrow; however, this is so rich, if a silly, somewhat sad
diversion - I couldn't resist. Also, for the record, I
was not one of the "GOP extremists" Rubin first attacked. As
stated before she did that, I had already taken the
Sorry, but there's really no other word for it. Talk about
someone with a malfunction. You write for the Washington
Post now, sweetie. You need to grow up and at least write like
an adult, even if you can't manage to think like one. Besides,
as far as conservatism, all you likely...
First, let me say, I RT'd Rep. Thad McCotter's Tweet yesterday, as I
thought it made good sense, while not realizing it was linked to
any talk of primary-ing Rep. West, or questioning his
dedication to conservatism. For the record, I also supported
Speaker Boehner's efforts yesterday and endorsed Rep. West's

McCotter (above) a moment ago, wounded that our
constitutional-conservative hero — he of the Red Eye, Seize Freedom silver tongue — had
reportedly said something so profoundly shtupid:

Wall Street is supposed to have lost love for President Obama
since his election, but early donations suggest he actually is
doing better with the finance industry this time around.

Reading this Hill article will likely infuriate
you if you have any appreciation for getting things done.
And it's both sides of the aisle; it's not simply politics. These
are government bureaucrats, not leaders, or problem solvers. Above
all, they love to talk, plan and, hopefully, off-load
responsibility to some other mechanism, commission,...
If there's a genuine adult in the Obama's marriage, one often
gets a sense it isn't the husband. Young Master Barry is stomping
his widdle feets, again. And, no, liberals, I didn't write
"master" because in some cases the word can be racially charged.
The archaic form simply works.
RIPD ( Rest in Peace Department) is
the name of the Men-in-Black type movie that's coming out about a

Those that know me by reputation likely see me as a fighter,
sometimes with an edge and one more often than
not aligned with the more conservative side of the GOP on
issues. Call it that, or a Tea Party mindset, or whatever, it's
where I usually end up.
For various reasons, this...
I gather from his item, David Limbaugh is seeking to tamp down the

It's been my unenviable position to find myself aligned

aligned. Perhaps partly from a need to focus my...

ABC News, RollCall below and others are reporting
that the Boehner plan seems to be picking up steam in the House.
It's too early to tell if that's legit, or simply PR, but reports
include a quote from Allen West that lends legitimacy. Meanwhile,
kindred conservatives continue to question the Boehner...
I consider myself a legitimate grassroots conservative, not a
corporatist, nor one with a Beltway mindset. While I want to
see Speaker Boehner's revisions, currently, I remain predisposed to
supporting his plan, just as I did originally. I think it the best
option for a common sense conservatism to continue to
Comes a puzzling email via Sen. DeMint's office, also

tweet from Sen. Lee tonight.

There is a clear, concise, as well as accurate, explanation for
why Obama and no one else owns the current debt and potential U.S.
downgrade problem. While spending is certainly out of control and
Bush's late move to "save" the economy didn't help, spending is
only one piece of the problem.
No, Speaker Boehner's plan isn't perfect. He never said it would
be. But as much as I like and appreciate Rep. Jordan and the
Republican Study Committee, valid points like this only serve as a distraction right now. This isn't
the time to play small ball. A Democrat-controlled Senate and
Some initial positive reaction to Speaker Boehner's plan via
NRO. At some point, conservatives are going to have to be

yet. There is much more...
In light of this dust-up,
In a statement just released from her presidential campaign,
Michele Bachmann delivers a harsh counterattack on her former
home-state governor, hitting back at his charge that she lacks the
experience to be president and blaming Tim Pawlenty for a
"multi-billion-dollar budget mess" back home:
