The Other McCain

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


So says Bill Quick at Daily Pundit, who says I’m “spouting arrant hooey” in observing that Newt Gingrich’s campaign is doomed. Quick says my “visceral hatred of Gingrich” accounts for my hooey. Even if accurate, this accusation completely misses the relevant point that Newt’s campaign faces financial ruin after Tuesday’s double defeats in Mississippi and Alabama. […]

Bring In Jeff Goldstein?

by Smitty Bill Quick and some people are arguing past each other on an important linguistic/cultural point: Are you guys really this dense, or is it just that you can’t see past your own blinders – lefties don’t like racist terminology and usage, so you think you have to approve it, or pretend that it […]

The Mitt Machine is probably even […]

Daily Pundit: Let’s Think This Through

by Smitty I said I care that people vote, but not for whom they vote. You reply: Man, you can’t really mean that. You don’t care for whom people vote?
