World’s Youngest Blogger: It Is Not Often That I Gather My Fans. . .

. . .but when I do, it’s really all about photo ops with the ladies. . . Congratulations to Kid of Lid, and her Award Winning Father, who picked up “Most Kosher Mensch of 2013” this year at CPAC, or something. Also saw Pete Ingemi at CPAC this morning, but this is a terribly busy […]

Obama Claims Ignorance of Failure Despite IG’s Clear Warnings in August

Evidently, the administration has chosen Kathleen Sebellius as the designated scapegoat for the ObamaCare fiasco: President Barack Obama didn’t know of problems with the Affordable Care Act’s website — despite insurance companies’ complaints and the site’s crashing during a test run — until after its now well-documented abysmal launch, the nation’s health chief told CNN […]

Southern, Conservative, American

Yid With Lid points to a Gallup survey showing that conservatives (89%) are more proud to be American than are liberals (76%). Interestingly, the poll also shows that Southerners (89%) are more proud of their country than people in the Northeast (81%). Hell, yes. Freedom. ‘Murka.
