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’s 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.

Ted Cruz Goes All Night; Vendors of Conventional Wisdom Say This Is Bad

Readers may have noticed that I have been ignoring the ObamaCare “Don’t Fund It” dramatics, along with the “government shutdown” threat and the punditry gabfest that have accompanied it. Depending on who you listen to, either Ted Cruz is the future of the Republican Party or else Ted Cruz is the harbinger of the final […]

Primary Politics: Can the Grassroots Defeat the GOP Establishment in 2014?

Interesting developments: Matt Bevin is challenging Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell in the Kentucky GOP primary.

U.S. Senate or Insane Asylum?

At Memeorandum, I saw this headline: HISTORIC: Senate panel advances trans-inclusive ENDA Perhaps you thought the “Gang of Eight” amnesty bill was the craziest thing the Senate could ever do, but obviously you were wrong.

Why Won’t Democrats Answer Questions About Kentucky Eavesdropping Scandal?

The minute I mentioned the scandal involving Progress Kentucky’s secret recording of Mitch McConnell, the lady on the phone at the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee said, “I’ll put you through to his voicemail” — meaning DSCC spokesman Justin Barasky, who didn’t return my call. Gee, I wonder why? The question of connections between Progress Kentucky […]

‘Democrat Ethics’

You seldom see those two words in the same sentence, except when a Democrat is convicted of ethics violations or — as occasionally happens — pleads guilty to felonies. The Democratic Party is the most successful criminal organization in American history, and the amazing thing is that they haven’t yet stolen everything that’s not nailed down. […]

Senate Slouching Toward Compromise

is there anything more disgusting than a Republican senator in bipartisan compromise mode? Bloomberg’s anti-gun group starts running ads in Pennsylvania and Pat Toomey folds like a cheap suit. Say the magic words: Bipartisan compromise! Senators struck a bipartisan deal Wednesday to expand background checks in gun transactions, inflaming the National Rifle Association while drawing support from […]
