WMUR Closeup for 6/10/2012: in which NH Rep David Hess decides to widen the chasm in the Republican Party by insulting it on TV

by Skip June 10, 2012

Unbelievable – do the Establishment Republicans feel THAT secure that Hess can openly insult NH Seth Cohn on TV – and all those that ascribe to many of the same stances?  I am sorely wishing to violate my own standards to use a four letter Yiddish word that ends in “z” – but I shan’t […]

Notable Quote – Daniel Greenfield

by Skip June 10, 2012

The obesity epidemic is a convoluted way of saying that the problem with government health care is the people. But that’s not the problem. Obesity may not be healthy, but if we ban sodas and force everyone to exercise in the yard before work, the numbers still won’t balance. Because the real problem with government […]

by Skip June 10, 2012

As you have seen the last couple of days, I’ve been out of town the last couple of days – so I missed this announcement from a blogger that was one of the first to send us some link love: Has It Really Been Ten Years? I can’t believe it’s been ten years since Weekend […]

by Skip June 10, 2012

When I put up the video of Dana Loesch and Jim Hoft, I totally forgot about a real important point until I went back to GatewayPundit to check on something (emphasis mine): It seems like it was just yesterday that I broke the news here on Gateway Pundit that Van Jones signed 9-11 Truther documents […]

Dispatch from Future of Journalism Summit / NetRoots Nation foray – Van Jones Book Signing Part 2

by Skip June 10, 2012

Well, of COURSE I bought the book as well.  Why not?  Now, some might say “Hey, you’re funding the enemy!”  Yeah, a few shekels will make it into Van Jones’s wallet.  But I also read Saul Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals for TWO specific reasons: Sun-Tze: know your enemy I almost got Alinsky’d before I knew […]

Dispatch from Future of Journalism Summit / NetRoots Nation foray – Van Jones Book Signing Part 1

by Skip June 10, 2012

Heh! My role for this merry group of political adventurists was to be “the secondary tracker” (yeah, a meta-meta moment) for our group.  Dana Loesch of Brietbart is an outgoing spitfire as a blogger and a talk radio host and Jim Hoft of GatewayPundit are nationally known bloggers (and Jim being a big 6’4″ blonde […]

Crucifying Obama – The Deseret Fox Strikes Again

by Mike June 10, 2012

I have noted recently, in “Mittz Romnel – The Deseret Fox?“, that Team Romney has shown themselves to be much more agile than typical GOP presidential campaigns – they choose targets of opportunity and strike hard, they counterattack swiftly and with precision, and they don’t often miss a trick. Meanwhile, a few weeks ago, Environmental […]

Dispatch from Future of Journalism Summit / NetRoots Nation foray – Obligatory rag-tag Occupy Providence post.

by Skip June 10, 2012

OK, OK, I know – from the postings thus far, it may seem that I went down for one event but spent my time over at the other: NetRoots Nation.  Non, mon freres!  Frankly, given the drubbing that the Democrats, theLeft, the Unions, and the rest of the associated fellow travelers, that yearly collection of […]

Heere’s Willie! Obama uses Bill Clinton at his own risk.

by Mike June 10, 2012

Over at National Review, Jonah Goldberg postulates, only slightly in jest, that Obama is running out of viable surrogates! After all, When Obama hits the road and attacks Romney, it just reminds voters that he can’t run on his own record. Joe the Gaffer has caused his share of grief already; Tiny Tim Geithner would […]
