If you follow conservative politics even a little, you know that NJ Governor Chris Christie is a rock star. Over the past year or so, his name continues to come up as a real contender for the  White House in 2012. The only problem is, he’s repeatedly and forcefully said he won’t run. That hasn’t stopped […]

Well, this weekend in Wisconsin went pretty much as we figured it would. The progressives attempted a gigantic nationwide rally, which fizzled (via memeorandum), the protesters who did show up let fly with the vitriol, racism, and physical violence of which the right has been accused since at least the very first Tea Party rally, […]

If you use Twitter, even a little bit, you’ll have seen a hashtag game. What happens is that someone puts out a tweet, hopefully funny, based on a theme that’s made plain by a hashtag (#FirstDraftMovieTitles, #NorrisFacts, #BadSequels, etc.). If the hashtag and the joke are good, and sometimes if they’re not, a few other […]

Everything I dislike about left-wing protesters can be found in this video by Ann Althouse and her husband. Here’s the set-up.

Starting next week, Speaker of the House John Boehner will answer a few questions posed to him on YouTube. This is one I’d love to hear him answer, especially since the price of gasoline in my burg went up 22 cents today. If you like it, vote it up and spread the word. Alternately, you […]

For those of you who use Twitter, the weekly Follow Friday ritual is a time-honored way of telling your followers about some of the worthy people you follow. It’s also a horror show of tweets that are nothing but a list of as many user names as the sender could jam into 140 characters preceded […]

Hooray for Friday! Can I get an Amen? And now, links! Run, do not walk, to Fingers Malloy’s latest piece at News Real Blog, which gives an entirely new take on the union thug’s assault against Tabitha Hale. I’ll give you a tease: Karate Kid 2 is involved. “That’s your problem. You’re an entrepreneur, so […]

Well, this is certainly a novel defense of Obamacare. Unfortunately for us, it was made by a federal judge and now has the binding power of law until a higher judge can strike it down for the codswallop it is. As previous Commerce Clause cases have all involved physical activity, as opposed to mental activity, […]

There is a good reason today’s post didn’t come out at O’Dark Thirty this morning: Twitter. I use Twitter more than any other social-media or web tool to promote The Shack. I found out last night that blog posts, which normally get tweeted thanks to a very handy and reliable WordPress plugin weren’t. Also, there […]

Today, President Barack Obama did something I don’t think I’ve ever seen a President do. He ordered the Department of Justice not to enforce the Defense of Marriage Act because he believes it is unconstitutional. Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. said in a statement released Wednesday that President Obama has decided that his administration […]
