  • Eric Cantor and John Boehner — particularly Eric Cantor — have decided they don’t need or want conservatives and, more troubling, do not have any intention of trying to win at the polls by forcing Democrat hands on Obamacare.

    Our leadership is behaving badly.

    Last week and on Monday I mentioned Rep. Steve King’s effort to repeal Obamacare and start over. He’s filed a discharge petition. If he gets 218 signatures, Nancy Pelosi must hold a vote.

    At the time, I was hearing that Eric Cantor was desperate to undermine Steve King’s efforts and, sure enough, he’s trying. Worse, he has John Boehner helping him.
    ++++++
    No, they don't apparently and Erick is right on this one.

    Repeal the sucker.

  • Leave it to Andrew Sullivan. It’s been 24 hours since I offered $100,000 for the full list and contents of the Ezra Klein’s four-year experiment in political-journalist editorial collusion — the on line progressive jazz fusion station known as JournoList. A natural free for all of death-wishing upon their political enemies and other such innocuous scribblings.
    ++++++++
    So-called conservative?

    Andrew Sullivan is just a legend in his own mind and is NOT a conservative

  • Before the Senate Judiciary Committee a short time ago, Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan appeared reluctant to admit that she wrote a 1996 Clinton White House memo aimed at altering a key medical group’s opinion of whether partial birth abortion is medically necessary. The memo, reported yesterday by National Review, has caused a stir in conservative circles because it appeared that Kagan, then a White House policy aide, put words in the medical group’s mouth in order to soften its position on the controversial procedure. But when Republican Sen. Orrin Hatch brought the subject up with Kagan, he had a hard time getting her to admit that she did, in fact, write the document in question.
    +++++++
    Too slick for me and I would vote against Kagan.

  • The administration's stimulus program has failed. Growth is slow and unemployment remains high. The president, his friends and advisers talk endlessly about the circumstances they inherited as a way of avoiding responsibility for the 18 months for which they are responsible.

    But they want new stimulus measures—which is convincing evidence that they too recognize that the earlier measures failed. And so the U.S. was odd-man out at the G-20 meeting over the weekend, continuing to call for more government spending in the face of European resistance.
    +++++++
    Absolutely correct. Big government types just live in a state of denial

  • Unless there is some other interpretation of these documents that does not occur to me, it appears that Elena Kagan participated in a gigantic scientific deception. On behalf of the Clinton White House, she deliberately subverted what was supposed to be an objective scientific process. The ACOG report was certainly seen in that light by the federal courts. Federal Judge Richard Kopf was deeply impressed by the scientific integrity of the report; he wrote:

    "Before and during the task force meeting," he concluded, "neither ACOG nor the task force members conversed with other individuals or organizations, including congressmen and doctors who provided congressional testimony, concerning the topics addressed" in the ACOG statement.
    ++++++++
    Indeed she must answer

    This statement was obviously false. The federal courts were victimized by a gross deception and a perversion of both the scientific process and the judicial process, carried out, the evidence appears to show, by Elena Kagan.

Chris, I agree. Having Sam in the Men’s Room would NOT be appropriate.

Now, about that ITCH?

  • Republican Senate candidate Carly Fiorina said Tuesday the best way to encourage job growth is to provide tax breaks for companies that agree to build facilities in the United States.

    Fiorina, who oversaw Hewlett-Packard Co. from 1999 to 2005, has been criticized for laying off thousands of workers during her tenure and shipping some of those jobs overseas.

    Fiorina would give companies a 10-year tax break when they return manufacturing plants and other facilities to the U.S. and a five-year tax break for startups and expansions.

    "Instead of trying to punish people for outsourcing, we should reward people for insourcing. That's the fundamental aspect of my economic plan," said Fiorina, who met with reporters between fundraising events in Washington.

    Too simple for Barbara Boxer

  • Politico: “THE DNC today opens an “iReport” for politics — a website that a party official says will be ‘devoted to citizens uploading content from political events, including audio and video — a central resource to hold Republicans accountable for misleading claims, lies, and unseemly behavior … We can’t afford to depend on the media or campaign trackers to be present and capture every extreme position taken, … so this site … will increase the number of people out there who with nothing more than a smart phone at hand can hold Republicans accountable.’”

    Good idea, fellows. You never know when you’ll see something like this:

    Good luck with that DNC.

  • I’ve had $100,000 burning in my pocket for the last three months and I’d really like to spend it on a worthy cause. So how about this: in the interests of journalistic transparency, and to offer the American public a unique insight in the workings of the Democrat-Media Complex, I’m offering $100,000 for the full “JournoList” archive, source fully protected. Now there’s an offer somebody can’t refuse.

    Who will be the first to sell out?
  • Former Washington Post blogger Dave Weigel has joined MSNBC as a paid contributor, the cable network announced Monday night.

    “Countdown,” host Keith Olbermann made the announcement on his show, introducing Weigel as "an MSNBC contributor…. Welcome Dave," he said."And you thought last week was fun, wait until you see what this week holds for you.”

    At the conclusion of the interview focused on a tea party candidate in Alabama, Olbermann again highlighted Weigel as an “MSNBC contributor."

    “Good luck with this,” Olbermann said.
    ++++++
    Finally, a home for David Weigel with Keith Olbermann.

    Some conservative/libertarian eh?
