This is an Ex-Party…err…Parrot!

This is an Ex-Party…err…Parrot!

I’ve seen more than a few clips of Lady Margaret Thatcher’s public speeches. This one, by far, is my favorite. She drove a well-placed dagger into the heart of the opposition party with perfect timing and just the right note of sarcasm. I suspect she would have made a mean comedienne. After you’re finished laughing, […]

Gosh, I can’t imagine why conservatives had some serious disagreements with Senator Robert Bennett. He has such a keen grasp on the first principles of conservatism! JUDY WOODRUFF: Bennett sees the Tea Party and other conservative citizens groups as demanding more than he is prepared to do. SEN. ROBERT BENNETT: I found that a good […]

Lindsey Graham — When Ego Gets in the Way Of History

Oh, Lindsey, Lindsey, what in the name of all that’s holy are you talking about? On four occasions, [South Carolina Senator Lindsey] Graham met with Tea Party groups. The first, in his Senate office, was “very, very contentious,” he recalled. During a later meeting, in Charleston, Graham said he challenged them: “ ‘What do you […]

Coming Soon: An Actual Book Review!

Yesterday, I received a review copy of Zev Chafets’ Rush Limbaugh: An Army of One from the kind folks at Sentinel Books. I haven’t had a lot of time to really dig into it, but I find it’s not a book that needs a lot of deep pondering. The story of how Rush Limbaugh made […]

Over the past couple days, I’ve noticed my number of Twitter followers sneaking up. One day I’m up ten or so, the next another 8 or twelve. It’s puzzled me because I’ve basically reached a popularity plateau around 2,900 followers and, since I don’t really stump for more and I don’t participate in the Twitter […]

Republican Congressman and big-brain Eric Cantor has an interesting idea working at his web site. It’s called YouCut and it’s a first shot as getting voters involved in cutting the size of our Brobdingangian federal government back to reasonable levels. Here’s how it works. Cantor has put five programs on the block. You can vote for […]

Every one in a while John Hawkins polls a bunch of conservative bloggers about an issue of the day. I find his polls interesting because the folks he picks are a mix of established, popular bloggers along with folks on various points of the blogospheric “long tail”. As one of the folks out on the […]

Let’s Not Break Out the Horn of Shame for Scott Brown Yet

I am sure much will be made of Scott Brown’s vote for the Democratic vote buying jobs bill but I don’t see a need to get all riled up about it just yet. Despite his resounding victory, Brown is in a pickle. No matter how much he’s become a conservative darling for being the “41st […]

I Told You CPAC Was Like Mardi Gras

I want to share a couple post-CPAC reports with you that almost completely summed up the experience for me. This was a different jamboree than last year in nearly every way. The venue was markedly different (and, to my thinking, worse), the Bloggers’ Louge was bigger and better, and the crowd was livelier and far […]
