The Delivery Presents – Cheesecake and Failure

Episode 175, the episode in which I succumb to my baser instincts and talk about hot chicks, was a dream to make thanks to my first-half guest Ruth of Misfit Politics (@Missruth1021). We chatted about the Misfette pinup calendar and why conservatives ought to break out the hot-cha-cha a bit more often. Second half shenanigans […]

Martin’s group last week launched the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, a super-PAC that will be […]

Happy Thanksgiving! The last two shows were pretty heavy, so we were due for something more light and enjoyable in Episode 174. Honestly, I don’t know how in the world anyone brings the weighty politics on a Thanksgiving show. Fie on anyone who does, I say. I have a lot for which to be thankful, […]

The post-election malaise set in during Episode 173, but not in the way you might expect. It didn’t last long, though, so if you want to skip over that bit, you won’t miss much of the show. On the other hand, you may want to hang in there to catch the beginning of a theme […]

It is not enough, as I say in Episode 172, to break out the spreadsheets and line charts when we want to explain why over-sized government is bad for us all. We have to put those numbers into a narrative that people can share easily. Throughout history, we humans have passed down our morals, cautions, […]

Oh, those silly French. The French government is redefining hashtag with a Gallic touch. The country that has an academy devoted solely to the use of the French language has given its official seal of approval to a new word for the Twittersphere: mot-dièse. For those of you not versed in the ways of Twitter, […]

So I did a couple of very cool podcasts over the past couple of weeks and I want you to listen to them. I’ve been told I ought to “be out there” more than I am and this, I believe, qualifies as being out there. But only if you listen and share the links and […]

You’ve probably noticed the posts here at The Shack haven’t exactly been plentiful lately. I have a couple good reasons and ask your indulgence for a short while to explain. First, I’ve spent a couple or three weeks re-evaluating what I want to write about after the election. Sure, I could go back to what […]
