The Other McCain

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

Rand Paul Is Not Stupid

“Turn the camera around,” as Andrew Breitbart said. Make the media’s bias the subject of discussion. Rand Paul did it right today: Rand Paul says he doesn’t want to be grilled about abortion until Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz answers similarly tough questions. . . . Paul, the Kentucky Republican senator who launched […]

Fundraising Idea: RINO Scalps

by Smitty via Hot Air USA Today: “The grass roots in Arizona want McCain to retire or be replaced by a conservative in the primary next year,” said Ken Cuccinelli, the former Virginia attorney general who now is president of the Senate Conservatives Fund. Glad that Cuccinelli continues to do the good work of recovering […]

Why I’m Not A Campaign Manager

by Smitty I’m a huge Ted Cruz fan. I like the fact that he is willing to admit that the ethanol mandate is bogus and needs to go. I’d love to see him do this, but it would probably be a Bad Move: He won't do it, but if Cruz walked on dressed as Jake […]

A packed room booed his stance on immigration — he called for “a path to […]

Elections Have Consequences, But Not “Consequences” Consequences, You Revanchist Tea Party Short-Bussers!

Renee Ellmers’ Incoherent Logic

Do we want rapists to be prosecuted for their crimes? Yes. How can rapists be prosecuted, if their victims don’t report the crime? They can’t. It would seem logical, therefore, that anyone who wants to prevent rape would be in favor of incentives that encourage victims to report these crimes to police. But good luck […]

Seven 2015 Predictions

by Smitty I don’t know how much insulin Stacy is going to need to recover from the Sugar Bowl–he could be in shock for a while. I predict he’ll root for Oregon with me on the 12th, vengeful bloke that he is. We’ll savor Boehner’s tears for the Buckeyes together. The NRO has a lengthy […]
