The Other McCain

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

Project #Groundswell Memo, Number 17: What Conspiracy? Oh, That Conspiracy!

It’s important, when prominent conservatives coordinate messaging, that your project inspire raging paranoid fear on the Left. Everyone whose involvement is not already a matter of public record should be careful neither to confirm nor deny their participation: “Believing they are losing the messaging war with progressives, a group of prominent conservatives in Washington — […]

25 May Gun March On The Mall

by Smitty Via Nice Deb comes news both of state capitol rallies tomorrow at 1000, and of a full-on rally being organized for May 25th at high noon. This is encouraging. There has been a sad lack of large-scale rallies, for whatever reason. In my perfect world, we’d be down on the Mall 2-3 times […]

“We’ll Fight Again Tomorrow”

– by Wombat-socho The post title, of course, is from Michelle Malkin’s morning after column, which was a bright torch amid the gloom of Obama’s victory. Indeed, conservatives must stand tall, resist the siren songs of “moderation” and “compromise” and continue to present America with a choice, not an echo. We must take note of […]

A Poor Substitute For Live At Five

– by Wombat-socho I had every intention of getting up at the usual ungodly hour this morning and doing Tuesday’s Live At Five, but I underestimated how fatigued I’d be after eight hours of doorknocking for American Majority Action yesterday down in Prince William County. I slept right through the alarm and didn’t get up […]

Righteous Indignation Meets The Grand Master

– by Wombat-socho This post is about two very different people who took the same journey at very different times. One of them grew up in poverty, and one in the middle class. One went to a well-known private school with all expenses paid; other other had to scramble to get an appointment to one […]

CPAC 2012: Extremely Controversial!

Grover Norquist (right) interviewed on WMAL radio by Brian Wilson and Mary Katharine Ham WASHINGTON, D.C. It is inevitable: Every year, left-wingers find something on the CPAC agenda that they can “expose” as controversial, so as to suggest that the entire conference is irredeemably tainted through this guilt-by-association method: Following speeches from Senate Minority Leader […]

Stacy McCain Still Shines

by Smitty Marco Rubio is a GOP celebrity whose nod would be a real help in the Florida primary. Legal Insurrection points out that: Neither Romney nor Newt deserve credit for helping launch Rubio. That credit goes to the folks at Not One Red Cent and a handful of other bloggers who started backing Rubio […]

Gasp: Sean Penn Is Onto Our Plan!

Not an Onion parody: Left-wing actor Sean Penn slimed the Tea Party as motivated by racism, charging on CNN’s Piers Morgan Tonight on Friday evening that an impediment to President Obama’s success is “what I call the ‘Get the N-word out of the White House party,’ the Tea Party.” At a time when Herman Cain […]

Let’s Not Go Lefty Over Technology

by Smitty Twitter is cool. You should follow me. Also, you should follow Ladd Ehlinger, a cat most cool, who shared a tidbit about Twitter: Multiple conservative Twitter accounts are complaining that they are spontaneously “unfollowing” other conservative Twitter accounts. I’ve had it happen to me, where my account has “unfollowed” people without my consent […]

#AttackWatch! Hey, @AttackWatch: This ‘Downfall’ Video Looks Like #tcot Hate

Both inevitable and obligatory: The laughable failure of AttackWatch.com is a result of the internal logic of the Left: When you believe your politics is an expression of your own moral and intellectual superiority, it logically follows that your opposition is both evil and stupid. While the assumption of right-wing evil is perhaps still unrefuted, we have […]

‘Subversion, Inc.’: Book-Partying in D.C. With Author Matthew Vadum Tonight

The notorious “Beltway cocktail party circuit” is a political cliché, suggestive of effete insiders conspiring over martinis in some sort of Machiavellian power-status cabal. There is some truth to that cliché. Washington, D.C., is very much a town where who you know is more important than what you know, and the most important thing is […]

OK, Here’s an Article You Must Read

Matthew Continetti of The Weekly Standard explains (a) who the Koch brothers actually are, and (b) why the Left is going so batshit crazy about the Koch brothers. Go read the whole thing. Now. It’s long, so it may help if you print it out, which is what I did. Now go read the thing, like I said.
