No, Senator Cornyn, I Don't Want What You're Smoking

No, Senator Cornyn, I Don't Want What You're Smoking

| May 12, 2009 | 4 Replies

I don’t know what premium bud John Cornyn smoked this morning, but he really should give it up. It makes him do some really dumb stuff like endorse Florida Governor Charlie Crist for the Senate. I am pleased today to endorse Governor Charlie Crist for the United States Senate. With his record of reform in […]

On Specter, Lieberman, Moderates, and Principle

On Specter, Lieberman, Moderates, and Principle

| May 5, 2009 | 3 Replies

Of all the posts I’ve read about moderates, Arlen Specter, and the Republican Party, this one by Ron Coleman is the best. He cuts right to the heart of the matter and identifies Specter for what he is: a Random Senator. He gets there by way of Joe Lieberman, who was quite literally driven out […]

If the Left is Winning, Then Why is there Fear in Their Eyes?

David Harsanyi has an excellent column today on the Tea Parties and the capriciousness of politics. Were I a Republican staffer, I’d make sure my boss got a copy of it, pronto. It was a mere four years ago that the Republican Party governed — and I assure you I employ the word “govern” reluctantly […]

Newt Lays the RNC Out

| April 30, 2009 | 2 Replies

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, Newt Gingrich is a very smart, very savvy man. He’s also taking out a strong position as a real conservative maverick inside the Republican party*. Watch here as he smacks the Republican National Committee around for being a bunch of crusty prima donnas.

This is big news, but not even a little surprising. A source involved in the talks confirms that Senator Arlen Specter will switch to the Democratic Party, a dramatic move putting the Democrats within reach of two votes in the Senate. The move stands to put the White House’s agenda on a fast-track, and to […]

Rachel Maddow History FAIL!

I realize that it doesn’t require a lot of intelligence to be a talk-show host on MS-NBC, but shouldn’t you have to at least have the know-how to pass a high school history exam? This is what star host Rachel Maddow had to say on her show the day after the Tea Parties: Rick Perry, […]

Tax Day Tea Party Roundup (With Links, and Rove!)

Tax Day Tea Party Roundup (With Links, and Rove!)

| April 16, 2009 | 9 Replies

Yesterday’s Tax Day Tea Parties were a smashing success. There were no reports of any arrests that I could find. No stores were looted. No police officers were harassed or threatened. In fact, the one instance where authories had to take action — in Washington, DC where an unknown participant threw a box of tea […]

I don’t know who Michael A. Cohen is nor why he merits op-ed space at the Politico, but I do know he needs to get his facts straight. In his piece, he warns the Republican party away from “extremist rhetoric” and names Glenn Beck as the chief extremist. It would have helped Cohen’s point if […]
