I Earned Peanuts For Pulling An 18-Hour Day On Tuesday

by Smitty Now, maybe I just have more skin in the game: . . .but I feel a driving need to explain to the World’s Youngest Blogger that I actively sought to keep the Republic. Sure, I could have done more, even running for office. The notion that people aren’t stepping up to the plate and […]

Did You Say ‘Preference Cascade’?

“One might have thought that the 2010 mid-term elections . . . would have convinced the Left that they had miscalculated. Instead, they placed their confidence in Obama’s ability to navigate the new environment . . . “Everything seemed to be proceeding in accordance with those beliefs until Romney dismantled Obama in Wednesday’s debate — […]

I’d've Been All: ‘Speaking of ObamaCare, Estimate Its Half-Life If Romney Wins’

by Smitty Durbin, trying to downplay the recently God-less Democrat platform: “I’m just telling you, you are harping on a trifle,” Durbin said, adding that the Democratic Party platform was “the most unread document in the history of American politics.” I’ll bet a soda that, unless Durbin is personally sponsoring legislation, he reads, roughly none […]

Ryan Zinke Speaks For, Oh, At Least A Few Million Americans

by Smitty At Breitbart, emphasis mine: When asked whether it was inappropriate for former SEALs to speak out, as some on the left have alleged, Zinke answered, “If the veterans can’t speak out, who can? I think it’s a duty of every veteran and every citizen to be actively involved in our political process, especially […]

Is Elizabeth Warren Willing To Go Deeper Than ‘Diving Klaxon’ Kennedy’s ’67 Olds To Win Back ‘His’ Seat? Why, Yes.

by Smitty Via Instapundit, we have a Boston Herald editorial wherein Pseudajawea the Motorcyle Godess tries to say that, because Todd Akin (R) said Something Dumb, and all Republicans think alike, and Scott Brown is (OMG!) a Republican, that Scott Brown is liable for Todd Akin’s comments: “Scott Brown and other Republicans want to pretend […]

Regulations Not The Problem: Complexity

by Smitty I disagree here: How government became a deviant subculture is a story of good intentions gone awry. We tried to avoid government abuse by replacing individual responsibility with detailed rules and objective legal proceedings. Never again would officials play favorites or indulge personal prejudices. Government would be an efficient assembly line. I assert […]

If Whores Are ‘Sex Workers’. . .

by Smitty . . .and Barack Obama’s policies screw us relentlessly, then: can he claim 0% unemployment? Just a random thought triggered by this. Terms like ‘expert’, ‘industry’, ‘job’, and ‘worker’ really are watered down these days. Just ask Jeff Goldstein.


by Smitty I can’t force the video to begin at 1:30, but Tommy Chong* serves up the basis for a ‘Bainers’ theme song: Red State: It is well established that Mitt Romney left Bain to go salvage the Salt Lake City Winter Olympics. It is also well established that his name remained on some SEC […]

Instapundit Recovered From The Incident

by Smitty As I was joking on Twitter earlier: Instapundit holding M-16 after bizarre nuclear accident at Oak Ridge shrinks him by 50%:… @rsmccain #SadButTrue — Chris Smith (@smitty_one_each) June 27, 2012 He has also noticed the S.A.L.V.E. project, which can also be purchased in dead tree format here.

Perhaps Not Since Johannes Gutenberg Invented Movable Type …

. . . has any event in the history of Western civilization been more significant than the forthcoming publication of Professor Glenn Harlan Reynolds’s The Higher Education Bubble. This 56-page booklet, the 29th in the brilliant Encounter Broadside series, has been breathlessly awaited for months, in expectation that it will revolutionize our nation’s education system. […]
