Is Weekly Standard’s Bill Kristol Violating NJ Law?

September 28, 2011
By

Bill Kristol of The Christie Weekly Standard.

It’s not about you. It’s about your country.

UPDATE: Most perceptive email so far: “Mr Kristol: Please remind Chris Christie that IF HE CHANGES HIS BEHAVIOR AND GETS IN THIS RACE, THE FEELINGS WILL FOLLOW. This, courtesy of the Jesuits and solid Catholic psychology.

Careful, Bill. I'm...

AP Now Appointing Candidates In VA?

September 25, 2011
By

Talk about state run media. Who needs  elections when the AP is all too happy to decide who the candidates are? Evidently they didn't handle it very well when asked by the press, either. Heh!

Few Virginians believe that anyone besides George Allen and Tim Kaine will be the major-party...

The Push For Christie Is About Romney, Not Perry

September 24, 2011
By

First, a big congratulations are in order for Herman Cain. He kicked azz and took names in the Florida straw poll, in large part because he answered the questions, while not playing the usual political games. The next debate in Las Vegas in October will be critical for Perry. If he...

Rick Perry: John Wayne Cowboy, Or Midnight Cowboy?

September 23, 2011
By

Some Pros, including folks I know, such as Ford O'Connell and Soren Dayton, among others, are offering Perry some quick campaign advice over at Politico's Arena.

Based purely on remote observations and talking to friends closer in, Perry seems to be running a Texas political campaign on a national scale, one...

Breaking: Sun Explodes, TWS Cites As Proof Chris Christie Must Enter GOP Race

September 23, 2011
By

Perhaps it's time to leave Bill Kristol alone to enjoy the crispy Christie tingle he has going down his leg and just turn away. It's become embarassing to watch.

Watching this week as Mitch Daniels intelligently promoted his book and Paul Ryan cogently explained why crony capitalism is inconsistent with the...

Ace’s Reasoning On Perry

September 23, 2011
By

I don't really agree with Ace here. Perry is not the same as Newt, or any of the other candidates, for that matter. Newt is not suddenly going to break out of the pack because Perry stumbles. Romney will likely wrap up the nomination. Perry is running as the conservative...

Is Rick Perry Done?

September 23, 2011
By

I wanted Rick Perry to get into the race based mainly on what I'd heard. My initial reaction after he did was, well he didn't consolidate the supporters of some lesser polling contenders, thereby dispatching them; however, all in all, he was doing quite well.

Going in, I saw these last three...

Joe McGinniss Jumps The Shark With Palin Book

September 21, 2011
By

One of the memes McGinniss and the Left would like to push is that former Governor Sarah Palin is driven by self-interest and ulterior motives. Perhaps it's time people begin thinking of Joe McGinniss in that context. Given so much media condemnation of his latest  attempted sliming of Palin, perhaps it's...

“It was one of those great, only-in-America Judeo-Christian moments”

September 21, 2011
By

"You've got to believe you are here for a reason," Senator Joe Lieberman told Sarah Palin back in the fall of 2008 when she was losing her bearings in the tense, over-scripted days leading up to her vice presidential debate with Senator Joe Biden.

The Caller And How Not To Manage A Media Crisis

September 20, 2011
By

It's good to see another adult perspective on the recent Daily Caller debacle. There have been plenty of them. However, too many on the Right got trapped into seeing this through a political, or even a Palin perspective. The Palin fixation set-in on both sides. I never saw the story as...

Bill Kristol’s Dream, Our Nightmare

September 19, 2011
By

Funny how a few YouTube clips fool the supposedly smart people out here. NJ Governor Chris Christie would never survive a vetting process by the GOP base, not no way, not no how. More at link as to why.

Tea-party trashing Gigot & Kristol dreaming of Christie.

Greta Van Susteren: Tucker Carlson’s A “Pig” Daily Caller A “Purveyor Of Smut”

September 19, 2011
By

The Daily Caller may be in a real bind now that this story is making the rounds. Could be wrong, but I believe there was a lot of Evangelical Christian money behind the Caller. I doubt they thought they were investing in a tabloid.

Fox News host Greta Van Susteren is...

A Note On Tucker Carlson’s Phone Call To Me

September 18, 2011
By

As this story is gaining traction, thanks to Greta Van Susteren and others, I want to put some quick additional points on the record.

This should not be about personalities, or fights between this site, that site, or another. In an attempt to tamp this down, I did call back the number...

Greta Van Susteren takes Tucker Carlson to the woodshed

September 18, 2011
By

An item with another view on Van Susteren vs. Carlson via frequent co-blogger Sissy Willis. For the record, there was nothing truly actionable in a post I removed. I never called the Daily Caller staffer in question anything. I raised a valid, though admittedly out there and extremely controversial question...

OUCH! Van Susteren Smacks Down Carlson, While Carlson Hides Out

September 18, 2011
By

Oh man, talk about both barrels. Greta Van Susteren posits everything from his doing it for a failing website, to seemingly having no regard for women. She leaves Carlson looking like a ball-less non-wonder. OUCH!!

I don’t like it when I see that my friends do disgraceful things – but we...

Daily Caller’s Boyle Slanders Blogger

September 18, 2011
By

Seemingly desperate to change the subect given the Daily Caller's pathetic and irresponsible behavior pointed out in a previous post, Caller employee Matthew Boyle has now resorted to slander.

Boyle, one of several DC morons to come my way today is referring to this Daily Caller story from August of 2010.

Dan Riehl, who...

Daily Caller’s Matt Boyle Must Be Dumb As Snot

September 17, 2011
By

After what the Daily Caller just got caught doing to Palin with an editor then putting up a lying statement to try and sweep it under the rug, this dumb ass Matthew Boyle from Daily Caller comes at me with this on Twitter. LMAO. Well, at least we know Carlson didn't...

Link And Post Removal Notice

September 17, 2011
By

An individual claiming to be Tucker Carlson has called my cell phone to request that I take down a post he felt maligned what should already be a much embarrassed Jeff Poor. As I told said individual, I had no idea who he was, though the voice did very much sound...

Daily Caller Runs For Cover Over Vile Palin Smear, Threatens Blogger With Lawsuit For Exposing It

September 17, 2011
By

Tucker Carlson's Daily Caller and staff writer Jeff Poor are desperately trying to backtrack from a vile and pathetic smear of a Mother to several young children and the nation's most prominent Republican woman, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Poor, now aided by Caller staffer Matt Lewis have also issued a...

Daily Caller’s And Jeff Poor’s Disgraceful Judgment With Palin Smear

September 17, 2011
By

For some twisted reason, Tucker Carlson's pathetic Daily Caller with the help of Jeff Poor found a radio interview with Mike Tyson talking about Sarah Palin important enough to make their website. What is it with these sad little Beltway bois? Are they simply misogynistic and unable to pass up an...
