‘Like a Plot Twist in a Faulkner Novel’

ITAWAMBA COUNTY, Mississippi Working from an enormous cabin in the middle of a 37-acre forest, it feels like I’m in a remote wilderness, although I’m actually just 15 miles from Tupelo. Our accommodations Monday night were graciously provided by a local Tea Party lady who knows Ali Akbar, and the mailing address here is Mantachie […]

The Tea Party is Over: @Allahpundit and Mitch McConnell Declare Victory

It’s “Spring Time for Mitch” over there at RINOville: Politico has a pre-election postmortem on how McConnell beat back the tea party, although most of it will be familiar to you if you’ve been following the race even casually. . . . Between McConnell’s easy ride to victory and Lindsey Graham’s trouble-free reelection campaign in South Carolina thus far, […]

Premature Obituary?

Josh Kraushaar at National Journal argues that the Tea Party is dead, while at The Federalist, Ben Domenech says that what Kraushaar interprets as rigor mortis is actually evidence of the Tea Party’s success.

‘Seize This Opportunity to Cripple the Tea Party’s Political Power for Good’

One of the things you learn is that if you ever sign up online for any liberal or Democrat operation — even as a reporter trying to get campaign information — your e-mail address will be sold and resold until eventually you’re on every liberal mailing list. Which I don’t mind, actually, because it gives […]

Shorter @Karoli: ‘Obama Will Obliterate You Teabaggers, and If You Complain About It, That’s a Conspiracy!’

Is there a more dishonest person in America than the vile lie peddler Karoli Kuns? Certainly, we cannot rule this out, considering that 66 million people voted to re-elect President Obama. One might write an entire book about the perverse mind of Karoli Kuns, whose attitude toward Republicans can best be understood by studying Pol […]

VIDEO: @SenTedCruz Is A Breath Of Fresh, Post-Obama Air

by Smitty What an awesome American: Here’s the link to which he alludes: “Don’t Fund It” I mostly don’t care about who the GOP nominates in 2016, as long as they have Cruz’s good humor, enthusiasm, and capacity to make a 45 minute speech seem a brief word. What a genius. via Breitbart
