Sen. McCain And Intellectual Integrity: Let His Carcass Caucus With Democrats

by Smitty Breitbart has the video of a certain grumpy old man, far past his sell-by date, pretending to lecture others about “intellectual integrity”. Enough. The old duffer has been in office for decades, while the integrity of the American government itself has spiraled down like an A-4 Skyhawk hit by Commies over enemy territory […]

Shorter Ryan: I’m Gonna Kick Tomorrow

by Smitty It maybe be that Paul Ryan sincerely believes that Congress is EVER going to reduce spending of its own volition. In the same vein, Obama has stated that he believes his own BS. Gently as it can be put, Paul, CONSERVATIVES DO NOT. We don’t believe Obama. While some might be swayed by […]

Ryan Almost Blows The Reform Trumpet On The Budget

by Smitty Former GOP VP candidate and all-around Centrist got out the Kazoo of Compromise in attempting to sell his budget deal with Senator Patty Murray: “In divided government, you don’t always get what you want,” he said. “We eliminate waste. We stop sending checks to criminals. We cut corporate welfare. We start making real […]

Mark Levin Threatens March on D.C.

The Obama administration’s disgraceful stunt, putting up barricades around the World War II Memorial and having its SEIU goons hire protesters at $15 an hour to harass veterans, has inflamed sentiment against the Democrat propaganda campaign. (The mainstream media are endeavoring to ignore the facts, being too busy promoting Democrat propaganda to report the news.) […]

Andrew Sullivan’s Psychiatric Evaluation

Ann Althouse calls attention to the latest scientific research by that eminent British physician, Dr. Andrew Sullivan, OB-GYN: “I regard this development as one of the more insidious and anti-constitutional acts of racist vandalism against the American republic in my adult lifetime. Those who keep talking as if there are two sides to this, when […]

Obama Makes Token Gesture, Because He’s Losing the Shutdown P.R. War

He’s trying to look reasonable: President Barack Obama invited congressional leaders from both parties to the White House on Wednesday to discuss the partial government shutdown and looming debt-limit crisis, a White House official said. There has been a tremendous backfire from Tuesday’s attempt — ordered by Obama administration officials for propaganda purposes — to […]

It’s a Good Thing @GabrielMalor Isn’t Trying to Win Any Popularity Contests

The morning Open Thread at AOSHQ gives their resident Eeyore a chance to voice his dissent from the GOP shutdown strategy: So the score is: conservatives didn’t manage to stop Obamacare. Conservatives are oddly celebrating a shutdown they claimed they did not want. The GOP is getting blamed. Oh, and how are voters looking at […]

Fear and Loathing in Moocher Nation

“Swing voters.” “Independent voters.” “Low-information voters.” President Obama’s re-election campaign engaged in a sophisticated microtargeting effort that, among other things, aimed TV ads at viewers of late-night comedy, ESPN and the TV Land network. In other words, the president’s campaign deliberately sought potential voters who were apathetic, disengaged from politics and current affairs, whose lack […]

‘Essential’ or ‘Non-Essential’?

Harry Reid says “no compromise” and, as of this hour, TV talking heads are acting as if a government shutdown is all but certain tonight, which would mean the temporary furlough of “non-essential” government employees, which naturally inspires a few questions: Are the Justice Department officials involved in the Fast and Furious scandal "essential" or […]

Harry Reid Refuses to Compromise

Explain to me again how this is the GOP’s fault? Congress took another step toward a government shutdown Monday as the Senate voted 54-46 to strip language from a House funding bill that delayed ObamaCare by a year. . . . Democrats also eliminated language allowing employers to opt out of providing insurance coverage of […]

Shutdown Monday: Blame Harry Reid

The New York Times: The Senate is expected to reject decisively a House bill that would delay the full effect of President Obama‚Äôs health care law as a condition for keeping the government running past Monday, as Senator Harry Reid, the Democratic majority leader, expressed confidence that he had public opinion on his side. Why […]

The Real Crisis the Media Ignores

Headlines about the danger of a “government shutdown” are misleading, and this is not an accident. Democrats are playing politics, and their media allies are talking about a “crisis” for which they blame Republicans. The noise is intended to distract from what this is really about: It’s not about Ted Cruz and it’s not about […]
