This is the weekend where the best golfers in the world head to Augusta, Georgia for a tournament called The Masters, during which they play golf for a couple hours then spend the rest of the time fielding questions about why a private golf club won’t admit women to its ranks.

Frank J. is a very, very smart man. Anyway, this got me thinking, it sure would be intellectually honest if more people started framing their arguments in the terms, “I don’t like freedom on this issue and here is why…” You pretty much never see that. I mean, gun control is an anti-freedom stance, but […]

Remember how the feckless buffoons in the MSM told us, over and over and over again, that the Tea Parties were little more than Astroturfed angry mobs that could break out into violence at any moment?

When I first saw this, I swore to myself it had to be some sort of Photoshopped spoof. It’s not, though. This is a real tweet from the official Newsweek Twitter account. [blackbirdpie url="https://twitter.com/#!/Newsweek/status/158668762579599360"] And this is the picture behind that link. Great, huh?

The Almost Great GOP Campaign Ad

The Almost Great GOP Campaign Ad

| January 10, 2012 | 3 Replies

I agree with Nice Deb. This GOP campaign video is good, but not quite there. What’s missing? Let’s go back to Nice Deb’s post for the answer.
