Tweet This keeps cropping up on Facebook and every time I see it, I find it irritating. There’s something horribly medieval about reducing women to their sexual organs. After all, when you think about it, the only thing that Obama has done for women is to order employers to provide insurance that covers birth control [...]

Tweet With the election nearing, the Facebook frenzy is accelerating. I got this from a Facebook acquaintance: Lots of food for thought, there: Ryan voted to end funding for Planned Parenthood. Ryan’s vote is completely in line with Romney’s insistence that a broke U.S. government should repeatedly ask itself “Is this program worth going into [...]
Tweet With the election drawing near, the pace of political posting on Facebook is rapidly picking up. I found two interest things just the other day. The first thing a friend put up is “The Worst Lies Paul Ryan Told.” What quickly becomes apparent is that, well, Paul Ryan didn’t really tell lies. His facts [...]
Tweet Do you remember Jennifer Granholm at the DNC, when she was yelling and gesticulating wildly? She was a 33 rpm record playing at 78. Watching the Vice Presidential debate tonight, it was obvious that Joe Biden had broken into her medicine cabinet and taken twice the dosage. Either that, or he was auditioning for [...]
Tweet Wrapping up a project that’s already taken me too long, so I’ve promised myself no blogging until it’s done. Meanwhile, here are some quick links: Explaining the Obama fundraising scandal. Cities can’t support themselves? Never mind. Force suburban homeowners to pay for them. It’s all good with the Obama administration. This is funny even [...]
Tweet Paul Ryan: College graduates should not have to live out their 20s in their childhood bedrooms, staring up at fading Obama posters and wondering when they can move out and get going with life.
Tweet With Paul Ryan shooting across the political sky with a blazing light, the Left is getting worried. The latest attack is to trot out Catholics who claim that, because Paul Ryan objects to wealth redistribution, he’s anti-Catholic. After all, say these Catho-Lefto pundits, what could be more generous than allowing the government to use [...]
Tweet Seniors will hate Ryan, we’re told, because he’s going to destroy their Medicare (never mind that this isn’t true). Young people will hate Romney and Ryan, we’re told, because they’re uncool white men, who want to destroy all the entitlements this generation has grown up expecting. Except…. Except today I was standing in line [...]
Tweet Within seconds of Romney’s announcement that Ryan would be his running mate, the chatter started. Democrats expressed delight, because they see Ryan’s stance on Medicare as one they can use to portray Romney and Ryan as Satan incarnate. A couple of years ago, they showed Ryan pushing grandma’s wheelchair off the cliff. This year, [...]
Tweet If the Weekly Standard hadn’t been checking David Axelrod’s tweets, I never would have known that Barack Obama dropped into his Chicago — Chicago! Home Town! — headquarters to, in Axelrod’s words “fire up the team.” He even includes a picture: I’ll freely admit that I’m not the best in the world when it [...]
Tweet My internet has been down for most of the day (defective router), but I’ve been able to check in with the internet often enough to know that there’s a general sense of delight across the conservative blogosphere now that Romney has announced that he’s chosen Paul Ryan as his running mate. Terresa, at Noisy [...]
Tweet My pillow is calling me, and I hope to be asleep when Romney makes his 9:00 a.m. EST (6:00 p.m. PST) Veep announcement. Everyone seems to think its Ryan, though, which makes me happy. Whether I’m right or wrong, here’s a VP Open Thread for you.
Tweet I am a huge Paul Ryan fan. I think he’s brave, principled, intelligent, articulate, and genuinely cares about America’s economic well-being. He also has the prettiest blue eyes in politics. He appears to be an ever-more serious contender for the VP slot. I think that’s great news, although I understand that (sadly) presidential candidates [...]
Tweet As the primary season heats up, here’s a good question to ask: If we want to end the primary season with a viable political candidate to face off against Barack Obama, are there limits limits to the nature of the attacks that bloggers launch against the Republican candidates during this primary season? My take [...]
Tweet Paul Ryan seems adamant about not running, but boy! do I like him. This video perfectly exemplifies his highly intelligent policies and his extremely pleasant persona:
Tweet For political junkies and fiscal conservative, I present your feel-good video of the day: Here’s Representative Paul Ryan, who comes from a mixed (Republican/Democrat) district, receiving a long standing ovation at a town hall:
Tweet Obama is so insulated behind his compliant media and his worshipful staff, I wonder if he’s ever heard before the facts Ryan spells out so clearly here: My favorite line: “Hiding spending does not reduce spending.” Brilliant core statement about the myriad flaws in the bill. Also, he drills in on the core difference [...]
