The Delivery Presents – So, You Want to Podcast, Do You? Good!

I don’t know how I managed to get through the first half of Episode 102 and not use the phrase “A pox on both their houses”. I think the entire budget/debt ceiling debate has gone so far past silly that it’s looped around back into silly again. The Democrats have no interest in putting a […]

Florida’s Mike Haridopolos, the current state senate president running for the Republican nomination for the U.S. Senate, doubled down today on his opposition to Medicare reforms in […]

Episode 98 is unique thus far in The Delivery history. It’s the first time I’ve broken the “no politics” rule for the second half of the show. I know…I know. Shocked gasps all around! I wanted to dig into the most recent GOP candidates’ debate in a way that most other  pundits haven’t. I don’t […]

It is now official; Herman Cain is in the 2012 presidential race. He made the official announcement today in Atlanta George before a crowd that reportedly numbered over 10,000. Wait…over 10,000? That many people crowded Centennial Park on a day when temperatures reached 90 degrees by mid-afternoon to hear an announcement speech from a candidate […]

Okay Republicans, time to show you have some game. Here’s the deal. A well-heeled left-wing activist group made a commercial to attack Paul Ryan’s Medicare reform plan. It is, as you’d expect from a group founded by the woman behind Media Matters, Think Progress, and the F**k Tea line of clothing, a bilious load of […]

The GOP House Intel Chair's Stunning Display of Insult and Ignorance

I’ve never heard of Rep. Mike Rogers, Republican Chair of the House Intelligence Committee, but I hope the next time I see his name in print it’s because he resigned his position. Obviously, he is not qualified to sit on any committee with the word “intelligence” anywhere in its title or mission. Republican House Intelligence […]

Special Bonus Friday Episode 89 turned out to be everything I thought it would be when I asked Kurt Schlichter to come on the show with me — funny, smart, and wickedly cutting. We talked about John Boehner’s budget deal, the slide of America into today’s modern welfare state, and the origin of the Community […]

My Partial Mea Culpa on the Budget Deal

| April 13, 2011 | 1 Reply

Those of you who follow me on Twitter know that I’ve defended John Boehner’s budget deal. It looks, today, like Boehner played a lot of silly games to get cuts that, while still cuts, won’t perform as advertised. As such, I’m going to have to eat a little bit of crow. I’m not the only […]

Thanks to The Constitution, The Progressives of Vanity Fair Have Suddenly Discovered Fiscal Discipline

| January 6, 2011 | 1 Reply

This story in Vanity Fair absolutely flabbergasted me when it popped up in my RSS feed this morning. If progressives have developed such an aversion to the United States Constitution that they will unashamedly argue that reading it in the House today will cost too much money, they have utterly surrendered the issue entirely. At […]

If I didn’t know that Reuters was a respectable, objective, non-biased news agency, I’d say there was a distinct undercurrent of sorrow in this lede. Legislators in U.S. states who are returning to work this month or entering office for the first time expect to spend much of the new year pinching pennies. According to […]
