In the aftermath of the Health Care Reform bill passage, while the Democrats busy themselves characterizing their own constituents as terrorists, they might want to give some thought to the real terrorists out there they have been more or less ignoring for the last year. It might be prudent to do so since a 200 [...]
A few days ago I took issue with the idea that Obama’s Health Care Reform bill would be his “Waterloo” and suggested instead it would be a long, slow, grinding defeat more along the lines of Napoleon’s retreat from Russia. Nothing in the last twenty-four hours has dissuaded me from this view.

Jim DeMint famously characterized the Health Care Reform bill as President Obama’s Waterloo, a statement that earned him the disdain of every pipe-puffer and low comedian in the MSM Rolodex.

While he didn’t state categorically this was affecting his health, [...]
When I was a junior communist living in 1960’s Canada, one of the few constants in my life was the unwelcome presence of Maoists at pretty much any gathering I attended. The cause de jour didn’t matter; it could have been “Get American Potatoes Out of Our Poutine!” It was all the same to them. [...]
