Here’s the video of the Scott Brown surprise appearance at CPAC as well as Mitt Romney’s speech. Most of the media attention will, I’m sure be on Brown, who I call “Senator Hunky Pants”, but don’t zone out and miss Romney. he was different today, more relaxed and confident, aware that he was in front […]

Doug Hoffman Vindicates Me, Says He’ll Run Again

| February 18, 2010 | 1 Reply

After Doug Hoffman lost the NY-23 Special Election, I had a number of conservative friends laugh at me when I suggested we’d be hearing from him again. “Ha ha”, they said as they threw rotten vegetables at me (figuratively, of course). “There’s no way Hoffman will run again. He’s not charismatic or handsome enough to […]

If conservatives were superheroes, Mike Pence, the Congressman from Indiana and head of the House Republican Conference, would be one of the core members of the Justice League of America (Jim DeMint gets to be Superman. Maybe Pence would be Batman or the Martian Manhunter). His name has been tossed around by hopeful conservatives as […]

How about some more multimedia goodness from a couple friends of mine? Stephen Green has a new This Week in Blogs and it’s pretty clear that he’s reaching well past blogs into Twitter and YouTube. If you don’t know TWiB, I’ll say it’s like David Letterman’s Top Ten List, but funnier and with less sexual […]

This is as good a summary of the way liberals think about their societal tinkering as any I’ve ever read (via Mark Steyn) Yet they do have one major thing in common, and that is the belief that, regardless of what the ruler does, the polity he rules must necessarily continue. This is perhaps the […]

Apparently the blogosphere is alight with the fires of the armies lining up to fight the next Battle for Conservative Purity. The subject this time is Glenn Beck, the guy who has never, ever claimed to be either a conservative or a Republican, but whose popuarity among both is undeniable. Really, the subject tends to […]

Here are a couple more videos to chew up all your precious bandwidth. They’re by a couple of my favorite people and I think you’ll find them pretty interesting viewing.

Conor Freidersdorf Puts On His Big Boy Pants, Finds Them Not Big Enough.

| August 30, 2009 | 8 Replies

Conor Freidersdorf is one of the innumerable and pestilential self-important twenty-somethings with degrees from impressive universities who have found gainful employment as pundits at places like the New York Times, Washington Post, and The Atlantic. Unlike writers like Matthew Yglesias, Ezra Klein, and Ross Douthat, Freidersdorf is not what I would call a big-leaguer, lacking […]

Today is Sarah Palin’s last day as Governor of Alaska and I’ll be on PRI’s “The Takeaway” show at about 6:45 AM tomorrow talking about it for a few minutes. I was on the show earlier this month talking about Palin and I expect my segment tomorrow will be about the same. I’m not sure […]
