Ya know, I can’t help thinking on Billy Beck as I read Mark Levin this morning: I’ve been thinking this for a while so I might as well air it here. I honestly never thought we’d see such a thing in our country – not yet anyway – but I sense what’s occurring in this […]

CR passes along a response to a post of mine yesterday: I’ve said it a number of times here in the past: the real power is in the US Congress.  Presidents can negotiate with foreign leaders, take military action (to an extent), and manage the administration as approved (more or less) by Congress.  And then […]

I note with interest, Mark Levin saying “I think one important focus of Reagan conservatives should be to do all they can to protect as many Republican seats in the House as possible. There needs to be at least one elected part of our government that might be in a position to stem what could […]

Yesterday, I posted the unmatchable Rush Limbaugh describe the state of the democrat house divided.   Today, I offer Mark R. Levin describing the state of the conservative  house and, “Why were are conservatives.” Mark is a lover of dogs and I liken him to a pit bull.   He just sinks his teeth in and  bites.  Hat Tip: Kathryn […]

Scott Johnson, Powerline, has “The case against John McCain.” I’ll go beyond Rick Santorum, and I don’t trust McCain on foreign or defense policy either. McCain has the problem of letting extraordinary temper get the better of his rather ordinary judgement. Sure John McCain is a genuine war hero, he flew flighters on and off […]

I strongly disagree with the Fox All-Star panel.  “They all” did not do well tonight.  Huckabee demonstrated why he should not be the GOP nominee.  He lost.  He did badly.  He was rambling at times.  He was dissembling at times.  There, I said it.  Good night. Mark R. Levin, National Review.

Two sources for this, actually. First, John Hawkins over at Right Wing News has what he calls the 40 Most Obnoxious Quotes Of 2007. Example: 33) “I do believe that it’s the first time in history that fire has ever melted steel. I do believe that it defies physics that World Trade Center tower 7 […]

Mark Levin says “Mike Huckabee is now becoming a very divisive figure in the Republican party. It’s not his faith or his Merry Christmas commercial that many conservatives question (I certainly don’t), but it’s his record as governor and his stated positions on the war, foreign policy generally, taxes, spending, and illegal aliens.” Quite so.  […]

Sandy Levinson, of Balkinization : According to a blog published by the New York Times, Hillary Clinton has told Iowa voters, â??I believe in the Second Amendment, and I donâ??t see any contradiction between the Second Amendment and laws that keep guns out of the hands of criminals.â? The irony in this statement is that […]

Oooh… interesting. At least to a radio person. I see Boortz is now on 1260/KGIL. I wasn’t aware they’d gone News/Talk. Last I was out there, (early 97) they were running an all- Beatles format. No, I’m not kidding.  Hell, they’ve tried everything over the years on that channel Jazz, for which they claimed the […]

So, Carl Levin is trying to cut the funding for the Iraq war. Why? He’s trying to get the President to “change course” in Iraq. He knows, as do all Americans by now, that real progress is being made there.  And he still wants to change course? To what? What does he want instead of […]
