Answer: Her Majesty Hath Decreed Him ‘Jebalicious’ To Her Chamber Pot Media

by Smitty Question: Why does the MSM so love Jeb Bush? . . .newspapers failed to see the big picture: At a conference [CPAC] that brings together conservative leaders from around the country, Mr. Bush was soundly booed and heckled.

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

by Smitty Just a side note in a Hot Air post, . . .Republicans in the Senate have been pressing for the interpretation of a rules governing budgetary reconciliation that would allow the upper chamber to pass a full repeal of [ObamaCare] with a simple majority vote rather than with the support of 60 Senators […]

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.
