I have for a long time found Ann Coulter fascinating. Occasionally wrong, mostly correct.  I have several of her books on my shelves here.  I even carry one in the truck that I haven’t finished reading.  That said, it fascinates me that  Coulter who had nothing but derision for John McCain, thinks that Mitt Romney […]

Buffalo, NY– I’m at the Erie County Medical Center, dropping off some furniture that I picked up at Elkhart IN. A nice little stretch of the legs. I’ll be back at the yard in a few hours and ready for my next adventure. This trip out west is likely a rare event, but I must […]

Jessup,MD– I’m here getting ready to grab a load bound for Syracuse, and then head home. I’ll be there by morning. Raining off and on across the northeast today. My poor truck doesn’t look quite so flashy with the much from the wet streets all over it again. That’s OK, I’ll wash it again once […]

Mineola,NY– OK, enough, already. I’ve had my entire week rained out. We’ve actually got some sun mixed in with the clouds as this is written, but sheesh. ..   Anyway, I’m out on Long Island, again. Interestingly a lot of these places I deliver to out here are now on a first name basis with […]

Last night was a drubbing of a sitting president like we have not seen since 1932. At this writing, we’re at around 60 seats worth of swing away from the Democrats, and by the end of this, possibly 70 seats. Look, let’s be honest…. Even assuming Obama and the minions of the left had a […]

Doug Hoffman narrowly lost the vote in NY23 last night, but that is almost inconsequential to the larger issues surrounding this election. First off, let’s make note of the fact that Owens bought his way into the race with 86% of his cash coming from outside NY23. Or is it 95%? That is not a […]

Great piece at NRO this morning, from David Kahane: If you had any sense, you would start using our tactics against us. After all, you have a few lawyers on your side. Sue us. File frivolous ethics complaints against all our elected officials until, like Sarah, they go broke from defending themselves. (David Paterson would […]

Well, now of course they’ve got the power. They’ve got control, and they’ve taken control of the car companies as well. As yet, however, they can’t force me to buy something, though I don’t doubt that’s coming.  They can by means of pollution standards, force my vehicle off the road eventually.  Now do you begin to understand why this ‘global warming’ nonsense has been so important the last decade or so?

In my new Pajamas Media column, I examine the feelings among the rank and file GOP. They’re itching to take on both the GOP leadership and the Democrats… and not nessesarily in that order. Label it as you will, but the call among the GOP rank and file to take the gloves off and hit […]

Melissa Clouthier makes an argument at Pajamas Media that I’ve been making,…. both here and there… for quite some time, now: I’m tired of Mike Huckabee, John McCain, Mitt Romney, Tom Ridge, and the rest of them. I’m tired of the pontificating. I’m tired of the holier-than-thou bearing. I’m tired of the self-important smugness. Most […]
