The Kincaid Kolumn Kerfuffle

Before I hit the meat of my post, let me lay a couple things out there. First, I think we’d be incredibly foolish to tinker with the definition of marriage any more than we have. A few decades of well-intentioned meddling ought to have taught us we absolutely suck at predicting unintended consequences. If we […]

I don’t have a huge point here, but I want to leave one little fact on which we may want to gnaw like a meaty thigh bone for a few days. Erick Erikson wrote a post at Red State in which he said this: It is time to throw the social conservatives out of the […]

I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this before, but I don’t do interviews on The Delivery. I have guests on and we have a conversation. I’ll usually have two or three subjects in mind but if we don’t get to all of them, or even any of them, I’m not fashed, so long as […]

I figure we’ve eaten up a lot of bytes over the story of how Chick-Fil-A has become a symbol of all that is evil in America, how every last franchise should be burned to the ground, how its employees should be harassed as they go about their duties, and how the poisonous hate-chicken should be […]

What a Real War on Women Looks Like

It has become nearly an article of faith inside the Democratic Party and the MSM (a Venn diagram that consists of one large circle) that the Republicans have launched a “War on Women”. They have come to this belief because Republicans have, in a most dastardly fashion, said it is wrong for our government to […]

By now, you’ve probably heard of Sandra Fluke, the “coed” who testified before Congress last week about how she and her “coed” friends at Georgetown Law School can’t afford birth control. She claimed that 40 percent of women attending the tony college, some of whom have full-time jobs, could not afford birth control because it […]

Just when you thought the abortion debate couldn’t get any more silly and shrill, here comes the pro-abortion crew, screaming into the breach created by a new law in Virginia. First, let me hip you to the law itself. What the state did was to modify an already existing law regarding what abortion providers must […]

Literally. Raising the rhetorical stakes around local battles over voting laws, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz yesterday compared Republican efforts to tighten access to the polls to notorious segregation-era Jim Crow laws. And what Wasserman-Schultz said (PDF link): ..now you have the Republicans, who want to literally drag us all the way back to Jim Crow laws and […]

I know we conservatives yack on about media bias, often to the point where we sound like a shelf full of “Tickle Me NewsBusters” dolls whose squawk buttons have all been pushed at the same time. But the bias really does exist and it’s not very often overt. Most times, even seasoned news hounds don’t […]

President Obama Channels Judge Dredd, Reeks of Desperation

| February 24, 2011 | 4 Replies

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 […]
