Freedom Works To Protest Romney

August 31, 2011
By

Not sure this is a smart move for them. 

A top tea party organizing group, FreedomWorks, is planning to protest Mitt Romney’s appearance this weekend at a New Hampshire stop of a bus tour intended to encourage tea party sympathizers to participate in the Republican presidential nominating process. 

FreedomWorks, which had been...

WaPo’s Rubin: An Especially Dumb Christie Effort

August 29, 2011
By

Rubin's latest Christie cheer may be as offensive as it is dumb, actually. Seriously, even with all the Palin fanatics and newly converted Perryistinians around, Jennifer Rubin's Christie crush is beginning to top everything. Maybe there's a fat man fetish behind all this, who knows? Earth to Rubin, saying...

Is Sarah Palin Your Shackleton?

August 27, 2011
By

A brief, well written essay casting Sarah Palin in the role of a modern day Sir Ernest Shacketon navigating today's political landscape. Metaphorically, the voyage may be as dangerous with the destination looking as much in doubt. Certainly, from the start, Palin insires this form of dedication in more followers than...

“First Responders and Clergyfolk are not very important to the powerful and the enlightened”

August 27, 2011

"Join us and thousands of patriots at the AFDI/SIOA 911 Freedom Rally at Ground Zero on the afternoon of September 11th. We will have a priest and a rabbi for the invocation as part of our program (just as we did last year). Be there," writes our sister grizzly in arms...

Why Perry May Fade

August 26, 2011
By

Based only upon buzz about Perry I had been hearing for some time, if asked, and I did say it to friends at the time, a month ago, my preference was for Perry to get in, consolidate conservatives, for Palin to stay out, and have Perry take the fight to...

RCP’s Scott Conroy On Blog Feuds

August 25, 2011
By

Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics is a terrifically solid writer, as I told him today, the first time we've spoken. That's not surprising. Real Clear Politics usually does things the right way. We discussed a few topics, including some dynamics behind the candidate-based blog back and forth in the Blogosphere...

The Radtke vs. Erickson Time-Line

August 25, 2011
By

Just a couple notes because there seem to be many misinterpretations of what went on here. First, everyone knows I fight my own battles and fight them here, publicly. That's how it's been for eight years. I relish it and have never hidden from one. This isn't my fight.

It's between the...

Jamie Radtke’s RS Gathering Speech

August 25, 2011
By

I've resisted serious comment regarding the unfortunate doings at RedState today and will continue to do so; however, reading the Politico item and having now been told some of what has been said about Jamie Radtke at RS - as, I hope, a decent man and a conservative, I feel compelled to add...

Perry Versus Palin

August 24, 2011
By

Simply an observation from watching the goings and comings on the Internet and how various voices and forces seem to be aligning themselves as relates to their support for Rick Perry or Sarah Palin. This isn't a cut and dried observation and it may change in time. Also, most groups...

An Evasive Jack Hunter vs. Stalwart Jeffrey Lord

August 24, 2011

Mark sent along this link after having mentioned what fine work Jeffrey Lord has been doing over at AmSpec on Ron Paul Conservativsm. Today features some back and forth through a Facebook link. I always enjoy reading Lord's work. The thinking is solid and his voice clear. Enjoy!

Jack Hunter attempted to...

Romney’s Big Business Myth

August 23, 2011
By

Someone just tweeted this to me:

We need proven Private sector experience, Exec. w Gov. record balancing budgets, jobs @DanRiehl Obama lost Millions of jobs

Being able to balance a budget is certainly a positive but the notion that simply because someone created jobs in the private sector, they'd automatically make a better...

Ron Paul: Neo-Liberal

August 23, 2011
By

An interesting read into some of the historical forces from which Ron Paul's ideology stems. While elements of it were anti-semitic, today's neo-Confederates seem drawn to him, as well. While his thinking is often glossed over as a sort of nuttiness, it's the various extremist elements under that which present the real problem....

Fight like a girl because you’re not “just” a girl

August 21, 2011

Lively debate in the radio studio with Peter Ingemi (above) of DaTechGuyblog yesterday morning, then on to a "salon" at Borders Grille in Leominster with lotsa good food and drink and talk with local listeners, bloggers, radio talkers and writers.

How Bad Was Perry’s Campaign Announcement? This Bad Compared To Palin

August 20, 2011
By

Right up top, let me say that, despite what some may think, I'm not committed to anyone's "camp." I like Palin. I also like a lot of what I see in Perry, wanted him to get in and am glad he did. I spent an hour on the phone with a...

#WhoIsLeonWolf ? A RedState Moron, Apparently

August 20, 2011
By

How did I miss this today? I can't say Wolf's post is the dumbest thing I've ever seen at RedState. That would require hours of research I've no interest in doing. But certainly, it's up there with one of the silliest posts I've read there.

Back to the point, however. I...

John Podhoretz's twitter avatar (above) is one of our favorites, beaming father with enchanting daughter. Hard not to love the guy, and we do, but hey. This is politics!

Erick Erickson’s Attack On Michelle Bachmann

August 19, 2011
By

Given RedState's conservative bent, it's interesting to note that given current, or more recent items in the liberal New York Times, the Neo-conservative Commentary and at RedState, the most damaging item to conservative candidate Rep. Michelle Bachmann to be found this morning is at RedState under Erick Erickson's byline. That strikes me as puzzling...

 "Against the Tide" by Rob Colvin.

By Sissy Willis of sisu

"Shorter NYT: Tea party is out of the mainstream because members are white, religious and socially conservative," twitter buddy Hale Razor writes re Robert D. Putnam and David E. Campbell's inadvertently self-revelatory New York Times op ed, "Crashing the Tea Party," a fact-challenged, politically correct...
