Surprising developments in Great Britain: although many expected the conservative Tories to win the upcoming elections for Parliament, the traditional third party of the country, the Liberal Democrats, are now leading in the polls. The party’s leader Nick Clegg did a wonderful job during the first ever nationally televised debate in England; it gave him [...]
The party of “pale & stale” no more! Okay. Maybe it’s still pale.
According to a report released yesterday by House Minority Leader John Boehner, the GOP is “dominating” Democrats in online media use. If you detect a caveat is on the way, then bully for you: The truth is, Democratic websites outnumber Republicans by 3:2. [...]
Last night, Rep. Michelle Bachmann (R-MN) joined Sean Hannity to talk about the hypocrisy of Tea Party demonization, the Democrats’ love affair with government intervention, and the Obama Administration’s support for net neutrality. The segment was solid, but in my opinion didn’t offer anything out of the ordinary. Mediaite’s Frances Martel, however, uses the interview [...]

Leftist tea-party smears are getting desperate—so desperate, in fact, that they’re now deploying a crude variation of “if you can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em.” The other day, the world trembled in fear at the awesome might of Jason Levin’s “Crash the Tea Party,” a group of moonbats who publicly announced their intentions to infiltrate Tax [...]
As usual, the mainstream media plays down the Tea Party protests except when it tries to paint them in a bad light. For example, the Tax Day protests in Washington, D.C. were buried on p. 17 of The New York Times, right above an article reporting that the Obamas paid $1,792,414 in federal income taxes [...]
