God Bless Senator Mike Lee

by Smitty Half the battle is showing up. The other half is staying engaged: . . .as rotten as the CROmnibus before us is, I want to state for the record that this week leaves me with nothing but optimism. Optimism about the prospect we have for real reform and revival in the coming years. […]

What Are The Odds That Boehnerdict Arnold Ends Up Making Wurst of Brat?

by Smitty It’s been depressing to see the fine print unfold: elections have consequences, so long as those consequences tend toward expanding the federal government, centralizing power, diminishing liberty, and crushing the borders. . . .Brat takes his mandate to halt amnesty as a promise made to his district. Most point to Brat’s opposition to […]

May Not Be True That We Have A 1-Party System, But The Theory Explains A Lot

by Smitty Via Instapundit, “Poll: Americans reject Obama’s immigration order, want illegals out of schools, jobs” Via Breitbart, emphasis mine: “The Democratic Party is falling apart on this [Obamacare] and immigration because the numbers are very bad…something is going on.

Elections Have Consequences. Will GOP Victory = ‘Consequences’ Consequences?

by Smitty You’ve got to love The Week: “Why the GOP must pass a real ObamaCare replacement after it wins the Senate“. That sounds like ‘bargaining’ on the Kübler-Ross Model. Keep in mind that ObamaCare is the new plantation. To hell with this Commie thinking that we can’t reject this plantation without moving onto a […]

“Remember the Time Warner Voted Against Obama?” Said No One. Ever.

by Smitty What a tool-icious record. I guess it’s a comfort to know that when #OccupyResoluteDesk comes to Virginia’s Fort Belvoir to golf, the President can rely on Mark Warner to hold Obama’s balls. Vote Ed Gillespie It’s high time the number of Virginia Senators with a shred of dignity was above zero again. via […]

Mr. Podhoretz, You’ve Got The Pieces

by Smitty Let me help you re-arrange them. So why aren’t Republicans sitting pretty? The answer, I think, is far more technical than ideological. Democrats are vastly superior when it comes to the mechanics of American politics, and have been for nearly a decade, while the GOP’s technical skills have withered since 2004. Allow me […]
