Oops! Jennifer Rubin Goofs, Again

July 31, 2011
By

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 same...

Jennifer Rubin Is An Asshole

July 31, 2011
By

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...

A Note To Reps McCotter And West

July 30, 2011
By

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 prudent decision,...

Dear Thad McCotter: Did you say that?

By Sissy Willis of sisu

"Did you say that?" we twittered Illinois Michigan Congressman and transcendent presidential candidate Thad McCotter (above) a moment ago, wounded that our constitutional-conservative hero — he of the Red EyeSeize Freedom silver tongue — had reportedly said something so profoundly shtupid:

"We cannot unite America if we divide the...

Major Obama Campaign Donors Reap Big Profits From His Policies

July 30, 2011

How can this be? He campaigns as being for the "little guy?"

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.

Among big fundraisers, Obama's reelection campaign has drawn close to a...

Intense Senate Talks Demonstrate Weak Leadership

July 30, 2011
By

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,...

O’petulance: Master Barry’s Childish Temperament

July 30, 2011
By

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.

Land that I love

RIPD ( Rest in Peace Department) is the name of the Men-in-Black type movie that's coming out about a year and a half from now. A cutie-pie crew of scouts were out in our yard yesterday (above) taking shots of our own house to use as the out-the-window views of the...

An Observation On My Support For Speaker Boehner’s Original Bill

July 29, 2011
By

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...

There Is No Split In The Conservative Movement That Wasn’t Already There

July 29, 2011
By

Any talk of some newly discovered, or revealed split in the conservative movement as a result  of the debt ceiling debate is totally puzzling to me. h/t RightScoop.

In the first place, for all we know, Ryan was simply discussing disagreement around the Boehner plan. It happens. Unlike the Left, the Right has never...

David Limbaugh: Knowing The Enemy, Plus A Reality Check

July 28, 2011
By

I gather from his item, David Limbaugh is seeking to tamp down the heat on all sides Right just now. That's a wise move. It's been my unenviable position to find myself aligned against friends and issues with which one will generally find me aligned. Perhaps partly from a need to focus my...

Erickson’s Debt Ceiling Scenarios

July 28, 2011
By

Erick offers three debt ceiling scenarios over at Redstate.

Any way it works, the GOP will get the blame, the debt ceiling will go up, taxes will go up, and spending will most definitely not go down.
 
The only way to stop it is for enough House Republicans to hold the line today and...
