Looks Like Somebody's All Out of Bubble Gum, Doesn't It?

Looks Like Somebody's All Out of Bubble Gum, Doesn't It?

Two days ago, Barack Obama flicked a little jab out at Sarah Palin. Today, Team Sarah blasts him right on the point of his imperiously-raised chin. Obama once promised to “bring a gun” to the election in the best tradition of the Chicago Way. Looks like he found someone who won’t roll over and play […]

Peggy Noonan's Confused Acquiescence

Peggy Noonan's Confused Acquiescence

It has bugged me watching so many otherwise brilliant people contort their brains into pretzels in order to justify why they’re throwing Sarah Palin out of the Cool Kids’ Club. Peggy Noonan, Ken Adelman, Francis Fukayama, David Brooks, and others have decided to kick their old conservative principles to the curb and embrace the new […]

David Harsanyi has a great column in the Denver Post today. It’s funny, but a good reminder of what awaits us if we’re foolish enough to buy the Obama hype. Obama laughs off the charge of socialist behavior — and to be fair, socialism isn’t the precise term to affix to his ideas. It’s more […]

I would have never decided to vote without your non-sarcastic, highly-intelligent, supremely beautiful encouragement! (Thanks, John J. Miller!)

Obama Chucks Dissenting Voices off His Campaign Airplane

While Kimberly Strassel appears in the Wall Street Journal to give Republicans sage advice on how to further build the “Big Tent” for which it’s known, the Obama campaign is giving media outlets the bum’s rush. It has thrown reporters from the Washington Times, New York Sun Post, and Dallas Morning News off the campaign […]

I understand that these guys are supposed to be the best and brightest that Libertarianism has to offer, but please. If you want to know why I don’t give Libertarians much love despite being one myself, that article goes a very long way toward answering that question. Especially most of the answers to Question 5.

Here’s today’s latest election commercial from Islamist killer and probably sheep-sodomizing pedophile Abu Yahya al-Libi: O God, humiliate Bush and his party, O Lord of the Worlds, degrade and defy him… And here’s the welcome partner of several prominent Democratic members of Congress and presidential candidates Markos Moulitsas Zuniga: Now’s the time for us to […]

Tax Cuts for the Rich? Well, and the Middle Class, Too

Tax Cuts for the Rich? Well, and the Middle Class, Too

Don’t believe Obama’s “Bush killed the working people with his tax cuts for the rich” hype. Don’t believe it for a second. Congressional Budget Office (CBO) data show that the total effective federal tax rate of the middle fifth of households declined after 2001 to its lowest levels since at least 1979, Congressman Jim Saxton, […]

Another Republican for Obama

Jules Crittenden is going all-in for Obama. His reasons sound a lot better than the other pusillanimous Republicans (Parker, Will, Adelman, Noonanm, et. al.) who have gone over to the Chosen One. We’re at the point where each of us needs to look around and say, hey, what’s everyone else doing? Should I think about […]

If it seems to you that there have been a lot more polls this year than in elections past, it’s because there have been. There has been an explosion of polls this presidential election. Through yesterday, there have been 728 national polls with head-to-head matchups of the candidates, 215 in October alone. In 2004, there […]
