Why #WeinerGate Ticks Me Off

Why #WeinerGate Ticks Me Off

I admit, when the #WeinerGate story (see Stacy McCain or Big Government for full *ahem* coverage) first broke over the Memorial Day weekend, it amused the heck out of me. It had all the elements of funny: an arrogant, self-important politician, hubris, an underwear-clad crotch. What’s not to laugh about there? However, the more the […]

It is an article of faith that the Republicans are the Party of the Rich Lobbyist, but that turns out not to be so much the truth. Open Secrets took a look at who got the most lobbyist cash over the two-year period of 2009-2010 and, let’s just the if Michael Buffer has announced the […]

Sooper Genius Anthony Weiner's Path to Electoral Victory: Sell Republican Books!

I’m going to do something a bit daring today and write a post about Anthony Weiner that doesn’t involve his crotch. Last week, he laid out the Democrats’ plan to end the Republican majority in the House. It is, I admit, a clever plan. His idea is to use the Republican plans to save Medicare […]

If I had been in charge of the RNC’s fast response team today, I would have had them all over this tweet sent by Hari Sevugan, national press secretary for the Democratic National Committee. The Democratic plan is to reduce costs to strengthen Medicare. The Rplcn plan touted by @CantorPress and @timpawlenty is one to […]

If I hadn’t seen this at The Hill, I would have sworn it came straight from The Onion. The Obama administration has floated a transportation authorization bill that would require the study and implementation of a plan to tax automobile drivers based on how many miles they drive. The plan is a part of the […]

I was ready to do Episode 87 Tuesday morning, which is a bit unusual. It’s not often I get such a great topic for discussion, one that causes me to crank out a couple pages of show notes before lunchtime. Paul Ryan’s budget plan, though, is worth some serious examination and so I spent some […]

You Know Who the Fleebaggers Are Just Like? Soldiers in Afghanistan.

In a grim future of arrogant hyperbole, this Indiana legislator could well be our Emperor. It takes an overflowing amount of both for him to compare his petulant flight to Illinois to avoid the will of the electorate to soldiers sent to Afghanistan for fight in our stead. But, as you’ll see, he has no […]

If you are anything like me, you hate sobriety check points — those blights on weekend and holiday traveling where police officers commandeer an entire highway, slow all traffic to a near-standstill, and lecture each and every driver about the dangers of drunk driving all under the guise of ridding our roads of drunk drivers.

Right On Cue: Democrats Want Us to "Put the Brakes" on Nuclear Power

One of the things I didn’t mention in this post (which earned the much-coveted Instalanche), was the sneaking suspicion I had that the shoddy journalism in Japan was headed toward a certain conclusion. With all the panicky stories involving scary, but ultimately useless, words like “meltdown”, “radioactive”, and “elevated”, it was only a matter of […]

You would expect, given all the talk from Democrats about how we need more civility in our political discourse and how “violent rhetoric” is as dangerous as actual violence, that the left would react to last night’s vote in Wisconsin with moderation and calm. Except they haven’t quite figure out how to manage a civil, […]
