The Other McCain

George Will: Apologist For Tyranny?

by Smitty I remember reading Will back in the day and feeling edified. He has wandered far in his dotage, first embracing Her Majesty against Trump, and now coming out against Brexit. A June 2016 referendum endorsed (52 percent to 48 percent) exiting the EU. Implementing this has, however, become messier than anyone, especially voters, […]

Step Back From The Wall And Consider

by Smitty This urinary struggle over pocket change is a proxy for impeachment. Giving up the on wall is essentially giving up on both the next two years, and any hope of reelection. “We the People” had the temerity to assert that the first three words of the Constitution are worth more — I Came; […]

The “Character” Issue II: More Personality

by Smitty I’d linked both Jonah Goldberg and Roger Kimball the other day, coming as they did when the . . .carefully constructed, pre-planned, pre-scheduled, and pre-organized public op-ed by incoming Senator Mitt Romney was deployed in the Washington Post… for those who have watched McConnell work; we knew exactly who orchestrated it and why. […]

Ah, The “Character” Issue

by Smitty Bruce Campbell’s political doppelgänger opened the pie hole in the WaPo. One is instantly reminded why we didn’t really want this gasbag in 2012, and why his loss to #OccupiedResoluteDesk surprised no one outside of Utah: The world needs American leadership, and it is in America’s interest to provide it. A world led […]

[AykroydVoice] Jonah, You Ignorant (Something Like ‘Unrecoverable Twit’) [/AykroydVoice]

by Smitty In defense of Goldberg, he’s writing for the LA Times, so the readers want to hear Yet Another Trump-is-the-wurst Spleen Dump. “The Trump presidency will end poorly because character is destiny.“ Step back and face the broader problem, Jonah: our government seems to stagger from crisis to crisis, with everything hinging on just […]

The Twitter Necropolis

by Smitty Social media in general, and Twitter in particular, seem to have gone sideways of late. People tending to be on the right politically just seem to get whisked off to the cornfield. Stacy McCain’s largish account got whacked some time ago, though he still tweets on. Alex Jones, of course (never a fan) […]
