Really, Mr. Quick?

by Smitty Really, Mr. Quick? Smitty is running a Gay Obama item a day, more or less. I know he’s trying to hurt Obama by playing up Obama’s support of gay rights with those who think gays should have no rights at all. Hm. I can’t parse this in any meaningful way. Homosexuality, as an […]

Insults Too Grievous to Be Borne Gladly

The dark mood is on me again, and I keep stumbling across occasions to remember injuries and insults heaped up like a gigantic mountain of humiliation. An inferno of rage burns in my gut, and restraining it takes a constant, conscious effort that exhausts me. Serial betrayals by backstabbing two-faced “friends” — well, I must put it […]

At Least Daily Pundit Gets It

by Smitty Quick shaves my point on racism a little more finely. I’m OK with that: Nobody actually cares about racism in America. As compared to much of the world, racism simply isn’t a major factor here. Cultural problems based on race and ethnicity do exist, but racism itself is not a real problem in […]

When the Blogosphere Gets Weird …

. . . the weird get blogging, and the past few days have kept me tied up in all kinds of “deep” stuff that prevented me from keeping up with the flow of events on the blogosphere. First there was that weirdness about the Planned Parenthood bombing in Wisconsin and the MSNBC “Republican War on Women” […]

Rick Santorum: It’s About a Movement

“When Allahpundit first asked, ‘Second look at Gingrich?’ on Oct. 18, my visceral reaction was, ‘Are you freaking kidding me?’ Nothing astonishes me more than poll numbers . . . suggesting that people are taking Newt seriously as a presidential candidate. And of all the prognotications I’ve ever made, of none have I been more […]

Since You Asked, Mr. Quick. . .

by Smitty Your bait post is noted, and your attention is drawn to what RSM had to say two days ago about the hypothetical corporate ‘we’ choosing Romney in November: “Rick Santorum went crazy on Mitt “Etch-a-Sketch” Romney, saying Mitt might be worse than Obama.“ So, while in the tank, I think that shows RSM’s […]

Trying To Help Bill Quick Appreciate The Matchless Brilliance Of Joe Biden

by Smitty Bill Quick fails to grasp the full audacity of the audaciousness of VPJB calling the “bin Laden raid the most ‘audacious plan’ in 500 years.” The plan itself was straightforward, boring military gumshoe work, training, and attention to detail. If you were physically fit, motivated, and worked as hard as the Spec Ops […]

Come On, Bill: Newt Has Always Been An ‘Ideas Guy’

by Smitty Bill Quick is attacking Newt for being Idea Man Newt, and refusing to drop out of the GOP hunt. But that’s who he is, that’s what he does. In this vintage clip going back to their time in the House together in the early ’90s, Newt is on a road trip with none […]
