Watch Cynthia Tucker, a liberal columnist from the Atlanta Constitution-Journal, explain why affirmative action is a bad idea. Of course, the irony is that he never would have been voted in as Chairman of the Republican Party were he not black. Let’s remember how the Party wound up with Michael Steele. In November 2008, the […]


Mind the Left

Glenn Greenwald from Salon was great on ABC’s This Week on Sunday. Especially fine was when he slapped around former White House Counsel Greg Craig for playing defense lawyer and claiming that Elena Kagan is the most qualified nominee to the Supreme Court of his lifetime. Great stuff. Now, considering that Craig defined Kagan’s politics […]


Bill Maher is a moron, so you might say, “why bother?” But he’s not alone in his reckless, hateful and self-serving use of the race card. It is Democrats who hold the poor in permanent bondage with horrible schools and poverty support programs.


Drag Out

22Mar10

It’s not that often that the Sunday talk shows turn from dueling marketing themes into a good old knock down, drag out fight, but yesterday on This Week, Karl Rove kicked the talking points out of David Plouffe. It was delightful. “Karl and the Republicans would be familiar with that,” Plouffe retorted. “Under their leadership, […]

A respected Nigerian business leader goes to the U.S. embassy six months ago and says he’s concerned about his son’s radical beliefs, also reporting him to Nigerian security officials. The young man in question – Umar Farouk Abdul Mutallab – is the son of Alhaji Umaru Mutallab, a former Nigerian minister and bank chairman. Half […]

This is good – from AMERICANS FOR TAX REFORM WASHINGTON, D.C.— President Barack Obama’s central campaign promise was a “firm pledge” not to raise “any form” of taxes on families making less than $250,000 per year.  This timeline of statements by Obama and White House staff and advisors illustrates a steady retreat from his oft-repeated […]


Was this a slip on the part of Rachel Maddow, who NBC was pumping up by granting her an appearance on Meet the Press Sunday, when she used Single Payer and Public Option interchangeably? I don’t think liberals monolithically feel one thing about this.  I think most liberals would probably prefer a single payer system, […]


Big new taxes from the federal government are coming – the only way to close the enormous debt that the Obama Administration is running up. That’s the news from former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan and Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner. Both Geithner and Greenspan, appearing on the same show, insisted that the economy would not collapse. […]


Bandwagon Gloom

Sorry, but I’m still having trouble buying the media argument that the GOP is over – nothing more than a party of the south. 40% of Americans interviewed in national Gallup Poll surveys describe their political views as conservative… After all, the Republican party is the party whose underlying premise coincides with the beliefs of […]


Cheney’s Pew

Call me naive – I guess I am – for I continue to be surprised by the brutal deceipt of those who once populated the anti-Bush movement. Consider Senator Jim Webb of Virginia, a pivotal anti-war Democrat with Vietnam experience, who today joined Obama as a Bush Democrat. Two years ago, Webb spoke to reporters […]
