The Other McCain

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

Didn’t I Tell Him to Resign?

What I said about Rep. Vance McAllister (R-Adultery) yesterday: A part-time district scheduler? Dude, if a congressman is making out with a part-time district scheduler, you know he’s gotta be banging Hill staffers two at a time. It’s probably just a. matter of time before we start getting more headlines: “Vance McAllister dirty texting,” “Vance McAllister […]

Shut Up and Resign Already

Few things I hate worse than a Republican politician who screws around like a Democrat politician: Rep. Vance McAllister (R-La.) asked for forgiveness Monday afternoon after a video purporting to show the congressman kissing a female staffer in his congressional office in Louisiana surfaced. McAllister, who was just elected in a November special election, has […]

Vichy GOP Skullduggery

by Smitty “Maybe you say it helps (Obamacare), but it really helps the small businessman,” said Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., one of several physician-lawmakers among Republicans and an advocate of repeal. No member of the House GOP leadership has publicly hailed the fix, which was tucked, at Republicans’ request, into legislation preventing a cut in […]

NRSC Uses Left-Wing Race Attack Against GOP Senate Challenger Chris McDaniel

You know the Republican Establishment is getting desperate when they stoop to cheap guilt-by-association smears in a GOP primary. That’s National Republican Senatorial Committee “strategist” Brad Dayspring tweeting out a story from (wait for it) Talking Points Memo that is one of the flimsiest guilt-by-association attacks in the history of flimsy guilt-by-association attacks. A moment’s […]

As Have I

by Smitty Via Instapundit, Radosh over at PJMedia brings the grim, emphasis mine: Apparently, whoever makes up this somewhat mysterious Republican “establishment” fears that their former hope, Gov. Chris Christie, is damaged goods. Secondly, they fear that unless they intervene quickly behind a chosen candidate, Sen. Rand Paul could win the nomination and, in a […]

Stopping the Bush Bandwagon

Even before the 2008 campaign had ended, it became apparent to me — from the rumblings about certain aides to the McCain/Palin campaign, especially Nicolle Wallace — that Sarah Palin was being sabotaged by Bushies, so that one could perceive at that early date the stealthy moves toward a dynastic restoration via former Florida Gov. […]

#OccupyResoluteDesk Totally Knows Him Some Foreign Policy

by Smitty Look at Obama just mop up the floor with Romney during the 2012 debates: The president is so witty and cool. Look at him own this guy. — Charles C. W. Cooke (@charlescwcooke) March 1, 2014 Five years of observing BHO, from Zelaya in Honduras, to Chavez in Venezuela, to the Green […]

Preach It, Dr. Wolf!

by Smitty 2014: YEAR OF THE CONCERN TROLL => Primary challenger to Pat Roberts found to have some curious Facebook postings — Keystone Keynesian (@smitty_one_each) February 23, 2014 For having made some insensitive remarks, the Vichy GOP incumbent is trying to disqualify Dr. Wolf, who responds: My training as a diagnostic radiologist included the […]

Spewing Forth The Lukewarm GOP

by Smitty We don’t really have explicit proof that John McCain threw the 2008 election, like Butch Coolidge was supposed to do in Pulp Fiction. I’m sure McCain must’ve felt a little sting at some point, but the old chap is far beyond pride. The 2010 Tea Party uprising seems to have caught the GOP […]

Republican Party Staring Victory Right In The Face, Wetting Itself

by Smitty It isn’t really that difficult to summarize, people. The country is on the wrong course. Technology is being used to enslave, not liberate. You want liberty, and Progressivism is producing legislation/regulation combinations that look like this, printed out: Once more, with feeling: “managed” liberty is not liberty. So, the GOP is all over […]

“It just wasn’t right,” said Sen. Orrin Hatch

by Smitty What a stinking crock of ObamaCare (emphasis mine): McConnell and top lieutenant Sen. John Cornyn (Texas) reluctantly backed ending debate after it became clear that no one in their conference wanted to cast the deciding 60th vote. Sixty votes were needed to overcome a filibuster by Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), who complained that […]

He Liked ‘Young Nude Boys’

The quoted phrase occurred in a Justice Department description of videos that Republican congressional aide Ryan Loskarn purchased. He was also caught with “hundreds of videos depicting underage boys . . . in sexually explicit conduct.” Formerly Tennessee Sen. Lamar Alexander’s chief of staff, Loskarn was arrested last month on child pornography charges and, as […]
