Chomsky: The Republican Victory Means Our Doom

Chomsky: The Republican Victory Means Our Doom

At some point we will stop thinking of Noam Chomsky as a leading intellectual and start thinking of him as a doddering old fool who has soaked so long in progressive politics that his once-formidable mind has gone soft as a down pillow. “There’s other factors like the anger, and the fear and hostility in […]

Jimmie at Hot Air: Afghani Tomfoolery and GOP State Domination

Over at Hot Air today, I wrote a couple posts about stories that, to be honest, should have been bigger news but, for whatever reason, just weren’t. First up, the story of how a man pretending to be a high-ranking member of the Taliban managed to fool the Afghan government and a bunch of western […]

Erick Erickson, bestselling conservative author and CNN commentator, wants you to know today that he’s not blaming anyone specifically for the Republican Party’s failure to turn a historic election into a super-dee-duper historic election. No, sirree. He’s not blaming anyone in particular at all, and he’s not encouraging you to blame anyone either. Nope. He’s […]

Dan Riehl is not happy with New Jersey Governor Chris Christie today. Why, you might ask? It’s not as if Christie has been a milquetoast conservative. He has gone head-up against public sector unions and beaten them. He is regularly combative with the MSM in his own state and around the nation yet does not […]

Not a Bad Rookie Season for the Tea Parties

Not a Bad Rookie Season for the Tea Parties

| November 3, 2010 | 2 Replies

How effective was the Tea Party Tuesday in fielding and backing winning candidates? Pretty darned effective, I’d say. For all the talk of the Tea Party’s strength – and there will certainly be a significant number of their candidates in Congress – just 32% of all Tea Party candidates who ran for Congress won and […]

I promised you all an Election Day summary post this morning and, after spending a few hours recovering from a marathon day at my polling place yesterday, running a couple errands, and combing through way too many pieces that said the same old things in the same old ways, I think I have a few […]

My friend Clyde Middleton of the excellent Liberty Pundits media collaborative asked me to be part of a roundtable post wherein several bloggers would handicap tomorrow’s election and look a bit past it to what the country will look like afterwards. He tossed my contribution in with those of such new media luminaries as Melissa […]

If They’re Sassing Steny on the Campaign Trail, They Might Vote Him Out Tomorrow

If you had asked me before the weekend whether I thought Charles Lollar had a chance to unseat Steny Hoyer, my response would have been something like “No, but it sure would be nice”. Hoyer is Nancy Pelosi’s right-hand man in the House and, thanks to his relentless use of taxpayer dollars, he has built […]

Poor John Kerry. He can see the tidal wave coming for his party and it’s clearly distressing him beyond all reason. With his party braced for defeats in the midterm elections, the 2004 Democratic presidential nominee told the Greater Boston Chamber of Commerce on Thursday that a Republican machine – fueled by talk show hosts […]

Since we’re coming down to Election Day faster than the Road Runner on a desert straightaway, I figure it was time to bring out a big gun for Episode 62. Nathan Wurtzel is a friend of mine who is also a crack political observer and quite a good consultant. We went on a little tour […]
