This, Tea Party Friends, is Why We Can’t Have Nice Things

Good, Tea Party Patriots. Go get ‘em! “He [GOP strategist and PAC-guru Karl Rove] sounds like he’s challenging us, and we’re ready to rise to the challenge,” Jenny Beth Martin, founder of the Tea Party Patriots, told The Hill. Martin’s group last week launched the Tea Party Patriots Citizens Fund, a super-PAC that will be […]

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz' Grotesque Puppet Show — Now with Tea Parties!

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz' Grotesque Puppet Show — Now with Tea Parties!

I hesitate to call DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz a liar, but I have noticed that she’s taken a precipitous turn toward partisan claptrap that has no basis in reality in her role as Official Spokesjerk of the Democratic Party. “We need to make sure that we tone things down, particularly in light of the […]

You Can Call It "Tea Party", but That Doesn't Make It Tea Party

I didn’t watch the Presidential debate last night. I even shut down my Twitter feed so I wouldn’t have to spend an hour ranting about it. Oh, I wouldn’t have had a problem with the candidates. I think they’ll all acquit themselves just fine and, if I need to, I’ll read the debate transcript tomorrow […]

Pity Maxine Waters. She Just Realized She Can't Build a Jobs Bill out of Spite and Corruption.

If you built a ranking system for risible loudmouths, you’d have to rank Rep. Maxine Waters (D – Greed) somewhere in the top five, if not at the very top of the list. Whenever she speaks, the intelligence of the entire planet drops a solid ten points. She is to stupidity what the sun is […]

I get in trouble sometimes with my fellow right-wingers for insisting that “bipartisan” “compromise” on a budget deal is a carnival game rigged to bring in the rubes so that those who run the game — we call them “members of Congress” — can shake us so hard that money falls out of our grandchildren.

Jimmie at Hot Air: Quittin’ Clinton and A Little Coming Together

I have a couple more guests posts over at Hot Air you may enjoy. Here’s a taste of the first, in which I consider Hillary Clinton’s Fox News Sunday appearance in which she said she was done running for office. The “I swear I’m not running” gambit is as old as politics itself and has […]

I’d Love to Claim Credit for This Smart GOP Move, But…

Now, see Republicans? That wasn’t very hard, was it? Now that the GOP is set to take power in the House of Representatives this January, the party is integrating Tea Party representatives into its official apparatus. The House Republican Party’s newly-formed transition team includes a number of House veterans, but it also includes freshmen Adam […]

Building the Lasting Majority Begins with Michele Bachmann

Building the Lasting Majority Begins with Michele Bachmann

| November 7, 2010 | 5 Replies

In my last post, I wrote that the Tea Parties and the GOP are going to have to learn to blend their strengths if they have any hope of being a lasting majority. The GOP can start that process by giving Michele Bachmann a leadership position in the next Congress. This blending will not happen […]

Not a Bad Rookie Season for the Tea Parties

Not a Bad Rookie Season for the Tea Parties

| November 3, 2010 | 2 Replies

How effective was the Tea Party Tuesday in fielding and backing winning candidates? Pretty darned effective, I’d say. For all the talk of the Tea Party’s strength – and there will certainly be a significant number of their candidates in Congress – just 32% of all Tea Party candidates who ran for Congress won and […]

Hey You, American! Back in Formation!

I am obviously not the only one amused by how baffled the Democrats and MSM are at the anger emanating from the American voting public like heat from the floor of Death Valley. It is as I said in my latest podcast: the left simply can not comprehend that Americans do not want to be […]
