A Potential Roadblock to Conservative Victory


Today on National Review Online, Sean Hannity delivers a thumbnail sketch of his latest book’s thesis—“The American people have woken up to President Obama’s true agenda. It’s up to the GOP to make the most of it”:
No president in the history of modern polling has lost so much support in so short a period of [...]

Stupak and Slaughter: Stalking Horses for Socialism


Integrity?  Missed it by that much.
You didn’t hear much this weekend about the blatant unconstitutionality of using the “Reconciliation” process to pass the Senate health care bill.
Why?  Because compared to the atrocity of the “deem and pass” (aka Demonpass) gambit proposed by Rules Chair Louise Slaughter, the misuse of reconciliation seemed like the very model [...]

The Great Healthcare Robbery

Obama and the Democratic Congress have lied every step of the way to pass socialized medicine.

Healthcare Summit: Reconciling the Vile and Depraved


“Preacher was talking, there’s a sermon he gave
He said every man’s conscience is vile and depraved
You cannot depend on it to be your guide
When it’s you who must keep it satisfied.”
(Bob Dylan—The Man in the Long Black Coat)
I like Joan Osborne’s cover of this Bob Dylan song. What has me thinking of “vileness” and “depravity” [...]

John, Chuck, Kathleen, and … Mr. President

There was something particularly annoying — even harmful to society — during the health care summit held last week.

Look Out, Frank Rich! It’s a Very Small Facebook Mob!


I don’t read the New York Times. If I want to get my fill of progressive propaganda and nasty smears of the American people, I can read any number of progressive bloggers who do it faster, more frequently, and with a lot more style and wit. That’s not to say that the Times doesn’t hire [...]

Hey Maher! How D’ya Like These Dumb Animals? Luntz Focus Group Shows Voters Engaged, Informed, Upset


So long, death panels.  Meet the new Healthcare-embattled American populace — captive to political theatre for the better part of a year and increasingly fluent on the issues at stake.
Frank Luntz, pollster and author of “What the American People Really Want…Really,” appeared on Fox News’ Hannity with a focus group of reportedly half Democrat, half [...]

Democrats Toothless Arguments at the Health Care Summit


Dear Mr. President:
I received a letter from my little boy – who lives with me but prefers to use the U.S. Postal Service for standard communication – stating categorically we do not have enough money for the purchase of Star Wars Lego and other necessities. While he didn’t state categorically this was affecting his health, [...]

Sure, But Will Obamacare Buy You A New Bumper?


I can’t possibly give you all my thoughts about yesterday’s health care summit meeting, but this .84 percent of President Obama’s 119 minutes worth of remarks does deserve some special attention.
First, a little set up. The President wanted to explain to the dullard Republicans and the rest of us watching on C-SPAN 3 (“The Tres!”) how [...]

Democrat Plan to Jail Interrogators for Being Mean to Terrorists Stopped by Hoekstra


Baghdad Jim’s attack on the CIA was smacked down by Pete Hoekstra yesterday.
While most of the politically aware public, and all of the news organizations, were focused on the Obama/Republican Health Care Summit, radicals in the House of Representatives tried to push an amendment that banned such “degrading” procedures as “threatening” a terrorist detainee, or, [...]
