Look at it this way, Dale; The Berkeley City Council serves Humanity as a bad example, if nothing else. And FWIW, I’m with you on cutting off their funding by the same token that they’re acting, here. Thing is I doubt anyone currently in a position to do that has that kind of moral fiber. […]

It is time that a voice be raised on behalf of the 73 million, pointing out that profit, property rights, and freedom are inseparable and you cannot have the third unless you continue to be entitled to have the first two. Ronald Reagan, via Michelle Malkin.    Read Miichelle’s entire piece. As to John McCain’s attempt […]

As I was growing up, one of the lessons I learned from my folks was that if you don’t lie, you do’t have to worry about who you told what, later. That lesson seems to apply well to John McCain. Bob Novak says: As John McCain neared his momentous primary election victory in Florida after […]

James Joyner: Ben Smith and David Paul Kuhn argue that poor showing in this campaign “seems also to mark the beginning of the end of a period in Republican politics that began on Sept. 11, 2001.” “There’s a paradox for Rudy,” said former Nebraska Sen. Bob Kerrey, who was a member of the 9/11 Commission. […]

There was a time not so long ago,when everybody in the Rochester area know when the Kodak bonuses came out.   The merchants heavily advertised the event.  In other words, you could not help but notice.    Now the  Kodak bonus on par with ESLO, a  fishing derby   MSNBC: Eastman Kodak, the industrial giant that drove Rochester’s economy […]

McQ puts up a few telling comments about Identity politics, in the context of the ever increasingly irrelevant “National Origination for (Leftist) Women. Not much of a shock that we both draw the same conclusion about NOW in particular… but I would spread that deal all over the Identity politics thing. It strikes me as […]

Hugh Hewitt says it not over and will not be over even after Super Tuesday.   Now it is clear that Mike Huckabee is running to spoil Mitt Romney’s chances and to garner a shot at Veep.  While the Huckster is playing the spoiler, Hugh posts an interesting quote from Romney: “I think what will happen […]

Five minutes after my last post, we lost power. Just now came back. A weird day. Snowing sideways, at the moment. I noted footage of the snow and blow act out in Des Moines yesterday. It’s here, today. Re-starting my servers here again.

So uttered to me this morning.   The good news, is  that we don’t have Dorothy’s twister.   The bad news, it is far colder than a summer day in Kansas.   The morning fish wrapper said the peak wind speed should be fourteen miles per hour below hurricane strength.   That’s all for Rochester, NY this morning. On to Florida, […]

And no, I’m not talking about Monica Lewinski, though I may get to that today. No, I’m talking about the high wind conditions we were supposed to get yesterday… they didn’t develop until this morning, and when they did they took out my internet connectivity.  70mph winds, again, like a couple weeks ago. Given that […]

As a candidate Mrs. Clinton has made a lot of promises   Can she be expected to keep any of them?   Remember that B.J. Clinton campaigned on the promise of a middle class tax cut but instead delivered a retroactive tax increase.  Clintons lie. If Mrs. Clinton will not keep her promises as a candidate, and she […]

John Hawkins deals with a reader’s question about why the ‘sphere hasn’t been more effective in this campaign: First of all, it is correct to say that the blogosphere’s two favorite candidates have been Duncan Hunter and Fred Thompson, both of whom, obviously, are out of the race. Also, it’s worth noting that on the […]

Campaign Spot: The first wave of exit poll numbers, including absentees: McCain 34.3 percent, Romney 32.6 percent, Giuliani 15.3 percent, Huckabee 12 percent. Which pretty much writes the end of Rudy’s story, as we discussed here several times in the last few days.

Another Honorable Mention in the OTB Caption Contest. The State of the Union was about as expected… as we discussed today….with Bush stating the truth, by and large and the Democrats with their fingers in their ears. I find it amusing that Canada, of all places, has backed out of the Durban Anti_Racism conference run […]
