Democrats: The Buck Stops…uh, Somewhere…


…clearly, anywhere but with the big guy himself.
That’s the conclusion Sean Hannity and Mark Steyn drew the other night, in reaction to Virginia’s former Democrat Governor, L. Douglas Wilder, who recently wrote that President Barack Obama “must overhaul his own team, replacing the admittedly brilliant advisers who helped elect him with others more capable of [...]

WashPo’s Dionne Indicts Alito For Shaking His Head As Obama Lies During SOTU Address


I have a bone to pick with E.J. Dionne of the Washington Post.  Dionne recently published an opinion column in the Washington Post, criticizing Supreme Court Justice Sam Alito’s reaction to President Obama’s State Of The Union rebuke.  Alito shaking his head back and forth and mouthing the words “not true” showed, according to Dionne, [...]

Most Obscene Tweet of the Day: Ana Marie “Wonkette” Cox Unloads on Pat Robertson


The NewsReal Blog has some very reasonable obscenity restrictions.  Those restrictions will force me to edit the Ana Marie Cox tweet about Pat Robertson this morning.  The blogger formerly known as Wonkette suggests a reaction to excerpt from CBN about Haiti being cursed.  Suffice to say that her verbiage rhymes with duck and is repeated [...]

Heather Mac Donald: A Crime Theory Demolished – WSJ.com


The recession of 2008-09 has undercut one of the most destructive social theories that came out of the 1960s: the idea that the root cause of crime lies in income inequality and social injustice.

The Politics of Blind Faith: Ron Paul Revolution


A Paleo-Radical feeding frenzy is stirring the NewsReal waters following Ryan Mauro’s timely coverage of Dr. Ron Paul’s Letterman-joust with Ben Stein.

Yes, Calvin, Conservatism Shouldn’t Abandon Cultural Issues, It Should Just Be Smart about Pursuing Them


In reaction to my ongoing dialogue with Mary Grabar regarding drug legalization, conservatism and the counterculture, my NewsReal colleague Calvin Freiburger responded fairly to a poorly-worded statement of mine. Calvin highlighted these closing remarks for criticism:
A conservatism that can win is one which understands itself and defines itself as a political movement, not a cultural [...]
