Yearly Celebration Week kicks off with a couple oldies but goodies from this time last year. As it happens, I wasn’t feeling particularly political one evening and decided to try my hand at reviewing some music. Here’s what came out, and here’s how I finished up. Now, since these are Police songs, you won’t find […]

This week, or at least the next few days, is kind of a big deal around these parts. See, April 26th will mark the fifth anniversary of The Sundries Shack. Two days later, April 28th, will be my birthday. I’ll be 41 for those of you keeping score — on the downslope side of “over […]

What? No Blogging Today?

It turned out that a day that was supposed to be 60-ish degrees and raining in the afternoon was 70-ish and partly cloudy, which means that sitting inside and blogging took a distant third place to ridding the car of accumulated winter detritus and running a couple errands with the sunroof open. By the way, […]

How Can You Have Rule 2 Linkage without The Shack?

As usual, your Saturday blog reading should begin with a hot cuppa joe and Stacy McCain’s linkfest to end all linkfests. He’s farmed the job out to Frequent Commenter Smitty, who has taken up the mantle as dogsbody to the Million Hit Blogger and is slinging the Rule 2 Affection far and wide. But it […]

While I was at CPAC, I had the chance to speak a couple times with the folks from Muslims for America. I was able to get a brief interview with one of the founders, Muhammad Ali Hasan about his group and what he and his fellow members are doing. I admit that when it comes […]

CPAC Day 3 – The Coulter Club

CPAC Day 3 – The Coulter Club

| February 28, 2009 | 6 Replies

Ann Coulter is a for-real rock star, especially among young conservatives, many of whom have been standing on line behind me for the past hour just to get her autograph. That doesn’t include the people who were lining up at 11:45 for her 12:30 speech. Yes, fully-fledged members of Generation ADHD were standing patiently for […]

CPAC Day 3 – The Recovering

| February 28, 2009 | 5 Replies

Yesterday was a light posting day for me for a couple reasons. First, I was a lot less mobile around the convention because I walked my legs off on Thursday (Icy Hot is your friend). Second, I had met most of the people I really wanted to meet so I wasn’t pressed to go dashing […]

CPAC Day 2 – The Newt!

| February 27, 2009 | 2 Replies

I had the opportunity to sit in on an informal talk given by Newt Gingrich, Saul Anuzis, and Rick Berman of American Solutions (Saul is a very useful guy who gets around quite a lot) on Newt’s “12 American Solutions”. They’re doing interesting stuff, working off of a premise that seems obvious but apparently isn’t. […]

CPAC Day 1b – Rule 5 Blogging

| February 26, 2009 | 4 Replies

In keeping with Stacy’s Rule 5, I want to toss up a couple hastily-edited photographs from today’s festivities (at least the ones I have ready so far). You’ve already heard a bit about Skye. Well, here she is, partially-eclipsed by a large and happy man: Then, thanks to Stacy, here’s Michelle Muccio. More Rule Five […]
