Dumbo’s birth certificate, Dumbo, b/k/a Barack Obama as reported by George Stephanopoulos, ABC New, via ZIP, Weasel Zippers: “I think that over the last two and a half years there’s been an effort to go at me in a way that is politically expedient in the short-term for Republicans.  But [it] creates, I think a […]

Over at OTB, James Joyner looks at the current wave of reports surrounding Tom Delay: Tom DeLay, the poster boy for everything that was wrong with the last Republican majority in the House, has been found guilty of money laundering. NYT (“Ex-House Leader DeLay Found Guilty in Texas Case“): Tom DeLay, one of the most […]

Doug Mataconis over at OTB, is commenting on the Anti-Palin backlash going on, and seems to me quite willing to be part of that backlash. I’ve already made note since the elections of reports of growing concern about Palin inside the GOP, as well as comments by the likes of Karl Rove that Palin is […]

From radio buddy Scott Fybush,  on Northeast Radio Watch, on Monday: *The final collapse of New York-based Air America Radio made big industry headlines at week’s end, but the bankruptcy liquidation of the pioneering progressive talk network won’t affect many timeslots on any NERW-land radio stations. There were no full-time Air America affiliates in the […]

Hey Martin: …and says to you, “One of my favorite political philosophers is Adolph Hitler.” You gag back your outrage or you say “are you insane?” Or you just excuse yourself and keep moving. O.K., suppose someone from the White House gets up in front of an assembly of students out at the local high […]

I warned earlier today that the damage to our country from the Democrats would be downright staggering. Robert Zubrin, writing in Roll Call today, makes the point there, amply: The United States emits about 9 billion tons of CO2 per year. Therefore, at a rate of $15/ton fee for emission indulgences, the bill would impose […]

As goes Energy, so goes the country. “The worse, the better,” Vladimir Lenin is said to have observed. What Lenin meant was that the worse social conditions became in Russia, the more likely he and the Bolsheviks could foment a communist revolution. President Barrack Obama’s White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel recently updated Lenin’s […]

As I said earlier this morning:  I can’t help but wonder if we aren’t at or beyond a tipping point  against Obama and the Democrats… even from people who supported their election. The amazing part is,  whereas it took Bill Clinton quite literally years to get to this point,   we’re only 30 days into […]

I have wondered openly in answering feedback mail and in comments sections on other blogs, over the last few days, if the electorate were not being intentionally overwhelmed by the issues being thrown at us by the Democrats. Object being, to slide as much possible by us in the confusion. I’ve been working on the […]

From the Daily Mail: George Orwell once wrote that politics was closely related to social identity. ‘One sometimes gets the impression,’ he wrote in The Road To Wigan Pier, ‘that the mere words socialism and communism draw towards them with magnetic force every fruit-juice drinker, nudist, sandal-wearer, sex-maniac, Quaker, nature-cure quack, pacifist and feminist in […]

I’ve posted this before, but I think it bears revisiting… here’s how to raise fuel prices should you want to do it… * Create shortages in the oil markets by ensuring domestic oil supplies can never be used. This will force us to get oil from the least stable spots in the world, thus forcing […]

You didn’t hear about this yesterday, I’m willing to bet. The Senate Commerce Committee met on Tuesday, trying to figure out what to do about the sharp increase in prices on oil. I mentioned the other day that George Soros was one of the people there. I’ve mentioned the reasons here many times…. simply getting […]

Looking around over the rim of my coffee mug this morning and noted Martin; McPhillips chatting about the McClellen thing again. Yes, I noticed the business with toward the end of his tenure at the White House as well, Martin. To be honest, I was always a little skeptical of the man, but always figured […]

I guess I shoudl have figured on this. Much is explained. It’s just that Stop the ACLU got to it first: I neglected to mention the traitor McClellan’s Bush bashing book cuz I had nothing to say that so many others hadn’t already covered, but now there may be a new twist. Tipster John Mark […]
