Why Don’t We Just Give In To Low Self-Esteem And Re-Elect Barack?

by Smitty Building on the theme of this Power Line post, let’s just admit that: We can’t have nice things. Our ancestors were bad. Taking our turn at the bottom of the global gutter is the only way we can hope to be shriven of the defects that Barack has identified in our national character. […]

Two Cheers for Katy Conrad!

John Hindraker thought it was “insane” for Katy Conrad of CBS News to contact Koch Industries, inquiring about the claim by MSNBC and other liberals that the Koch brothers were paying for George Zimmerman’s legal defense in the Trayvon Martin case.

2012 Is About Barack Obama: This Cannot Be Over-Emphasized

by Smitty Power Line nails it, emphasis mine: What happened to Herman Cain is what the Democrats intend to do to whoever the Republican nominee turns out to be.

The astroturf seems to work as follows: . . .Egan thinks Republicans are dumb. But let’s take a closer look. His 46 percent is an unpublished number from a Time magazine survey that is described […]

Not Agreeing With Power Line Here

Rep. Thaddeus McCotter Remains A Favorite

by Smitty via Power Line, Michael Ramirez lays it down: “We the Government” Rep. Thaddeus McCotter, via Gateway Pundit, expands on this wonderfully: …the most dangerous special interest is big government and President Obama is its lobbyist.
