Reynolds: For me, of course, most of the fun of the past 24 hours has come from watching Democrats get caught up in the whole identity-politics tangle. And you know, Glenn’s hit this one. That’s really what this has been all about, the last 24 hours. The Democrats, as quoted by McQ,  in the previous […]

I was just listening to a fairly uninspired discussion on NPR about race and the coverage of the Democratic primary (while driving to the airport). One interesting tidbit from the Washington Post’s Kevin Merida is that the Obama campaign has met with some serious racial antagonism in Pennsylvania. How extensive it was I couldn’t gather […]

Rich Lowry notes something that’s been unsettling to me the last several days: When an unimpeachably liberal former vice-presidential candidate of the Democratic party is likened to David Duke by a liberal media hero, the political apocalypse — or at least a grievance-politics cataclysm — is upon us. In one of his sputtering-mad “special comments” […]

 The racist card and the sexist card. Is Geraldine Ferraro a racist? Eh, likely not. But it is of note that the charge is coming fast and furious against her from Obama’s supporters, isn’t it?I mean, look…You knew the race card was gonna get played, and you knew who by. But is Ferraro’s comment off […]

(Queue Beatles, Revolution Number 9) OK, for all that we’ve been busy chatting about how Spitzer came over at the Mayflower, there was , in fact, other stuff in my head, and on the wires, besides Spitzer, today. Here’s a few selections: Oil to $110/bbl. I’m telling you guys, the bubble’s about to burst, here. Did you […]

Shoveling out today, we caught a foot of snow at least, hereabouts. Meanwhile, the Kos kids are dealing with a snowstorm of their own… one created by Kos, himself. It’s amazing, what some will do in their fruitless attempt avoid the logical conclusions of the identity politics these morons have been pushing for years.

Mark Halperin apparently is either engaged in pandering or is losing his ability to chose the correct words for a given situation. Lewis is a universally respected, historic figure who is the first prominent Democrat to go from squarely in Clinton’s camp to Obama’s. The rationale he seemed to give to the New York Times […]

An amusing article at Captain’s Quarters, today…. Susan Estrich either wants to build credibility as a satirist, or her latest column provides a long-overdue look in the mirror for Democrats. Detecting more a whiff of the so-called Bradley Effect in primaries where Barack Obama holds solid polling leads only to mysteriously fall short of Hillary […]

Modern liberalism is so rooted in identity politics – approved tribes and unapproved tribes – that even its ideas  (“tolerance”, “diversity”) extend only to favored groups.          Mark Steyn, National Review.

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 […]

The Los Angles Times, has a survey which indicates that sixty three percent of Americans are ready for woman in the White House.   Kathryn Jean Lopez, National Review, throws some cold water on the LAT in general, and on Mrs. Clinton in particular: I don’t want a female president either. She’d be whiny and annoying and […]

I mean, not like this stuff wasn’t expected. I’ve been talking about this kind of thing for years. But it does give us an idea of the kind of nonsense we’re in for: From the London Times: AMERICA’S favourite television presenter is paying a painful price for her intervention in the US presidential campaign last […]
