George Will: Sarah Palin and the Mutual Loathing Society – RealClearPolitics


The Republican presidential nominee, an Arizona senator, was a maverick, which was part of his charm. He spoke and acted impulsively, which was part of his problem. Voters thought his entertaining dimensions might be incompatible with presidential responsibilities.

Maher Not Dismayed Over Bayh Bow-out. Moderates Are “Corporatists,” Anyway


Following Evan Bayh’s (D-IN) abrupt retirement, comedian Bill Maher appeared on Anderson Cooper 360° to discuss Congressional inertia.  His first response to the moderate Democrat’s departure?

Michelle Obama’s answer includes a [...]

Megan McCain:“I’m Sorry Revolutions Start With Young People”


As the Left wing media extols Megan McCain as a voice of reason within the Republican Party, Conservatives would do well to recognize she is a good example of  the “Progressive” problem within the GOP, as she helps them define the issues.

Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan Stands Alone on Economic Solution


Remember how President Barack “Darth Vader” Obama asked Republicans to “bring it on” if they had better ideas for America’s future than the ones he and his fellow Democrats have proposed. Writing for FrontPage Magazine, Vasko Kohlmayer reports that one Republican gave Obama what he asked for – and probably more than that.
It comes in [...]

The Zinnians, the Neo-Communists, and Us


The objective of the Zinnians, the Neo-Communists of today, and the Old Left Communists of 70 years ago is identical and summarized in this image.
The death of Howard Zinn has brought the neo-Communists out of the woodwork, the latest example being Scott McLemee’s tribute to Zinn (and casual smearing of anti-Comunists like Ron Radosh) in [...]
