The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

ObamaCare: Death Panels for the DCCC

Democrat 2014 campaign slogan: "Now That We Totally Fucked Up Your Health Insurance, Give Us a Chance to Fuck Up Everything Else, Too." — Robert Stacy McCain (@rsmccain) November 14, 2013 Oh, what a difference a week can make! After the unfortunate result in the Virginia gubernatorial election, liberal pundits (and some Republicans) were declaring […]

Did SiteMeter Commit Suicide?
UPDATE: It’s Working Again, But Unfortunately, My Traffic Sucks

As of right now, it’s dead. Donald Douglas at American Power and Doug Ross at Director Blue both report that the best, easiest-to-use traffic analytics site failed to renew its domain registration, an error that would require a special kind of stupidity. Let’s all say a prayer that they can get it fixed, because without SiteMeter, I […]

Missing Word in RNC Report: ‘Blog’

William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection spots the omission: Even when the report does mention “social media,” it’s in the context of getting out the vote or having the party apparatus find a better way to reach voters. I would not be surprised if the RNC spoke with some of the salaried conservative media class who […]

Meet @BridgetteDunlap, Fordham’s Campus Commissar of ‘Human Rights’

“Ms. Dunlap, 31 … was raised a Catholic and was educated at parochial schools” (Photo: Michael Nagle, New York Times) You may recall this week I wrote an item called “Why Does @BridgetteDunlap Want to Suppress the Truth About Abortion?” describing a misguided effort to intimidate those who had written about the abortion-related death of Jennifer […]

Is ‘Corrupt Democrat’ Redundant?

William Jacobson at Legal Insurrection reports on a congressional ethics investigation that has found “there is substantial reason to believe that Representative Owens accepted payment of travel expenses for an officially connected trip to Taiwan from an impermissible source, resulting in an impermissible gift, in violation of federal law and House Rules.” And by “substantial […]

Scofflaw David Gregory Busted by Bloggers, MIA From ‘Meet the Press’

Professor William “Just a Blogger” Jacobson is available to accept your high-fives after he helped lead the citizen-journalist posse that exposed David Gregory’s violation of D.C.’s stringent gun laws. Dylan Byers of Politico has the latest network spin: NBC’s David Gregory, the subject of a now-popular police investigation, is on vacation and will not host […]

Why Do Democrats Like Elizabeth Warren Hate Science?

by Smitty William Jacobson relates Elizabeth Warren’s socially constructed approach to genealogy. Shorter Warren: “I felt Cherokee, and feeling is being.” Look: they have DNA testing now. Put up or shut up. Find some Cherokee who are willing to provide cheek swabs, and get some lab tests going. Find out what, if any, genetic similarities […]

Reporting Their Own Opinions as ‘News’

“It all was part of a group effort . . . to shift the focus from the death of a U.S. Ambassador on a day when all the warning signs of trouble were in place but the U.S. government did little if anything to beef up security. “It was a day on which the media […]

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 […]

Kids! What’s the Matter With Kids Today?

Why can’t they be like we were, perfect in every way? Actually, as Bush-era “brand damage” fades amid the grim reality of Obama-ism — hey,  the economy sucks, right? — the kids are starting to figure this stuff out. In 2008, exit polls showed the Republicans lost the under-30 vote by more than a 2-to-1 margin […]

All Right, Everybody Quit Making Fun Of Matthew Yglesias

by Smitty via (JWF) Yglesias cannot be held to account for mistaking the Paul Ryan for the Congressman who engaged in insider trading after the 2008 housing meltdown: Public Servant Drool Bucket To the best of my knowledge, ‘Gentleman’ Jim Moran has offered no explanation, much less an apology, for the allegations of day trading […]

Everybody Keeps Getting a Busy Signal at the Blogger Burnout Hotline Nowadays

Professor William Jacobson laments Don Surber’s recent decision to quit blogging. It is probably just a coincidence that Don, one of the most valuable members of the conservative blogosphere since 2005, was never invited to speak at BlogCon. Instapundit grimly holds on. UPDATE: Pat Austin is also grimly hanging on in Shreveport. She offers to chat over […]
