Gather Your Armies

Rick Barber, an Alabama Republican and candidate for Congress, has forced a runoff for the Republican nomination. The runoff is being held on Tuesday, July 13, and I strongly suggest that all Alabamans show up to the polls and exercise their American right to participate in their own governance. It’s our own form of participatory … Continue reading

Lincoln Halts Halter

In a huge victory for Republicans, incumbent Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) has defeated Bill Halter in the primary runoff in Arkansas. She will run against John Boozman (R-AR) in November. Halter was the darling of the ‘progressive’ crowd and the labor unions, who pumped millions of dollars into Arkansas in an attempt to buy the … Continue reading

I Apologize, But Only If You Take Offense

I am confused. And outraged. Mainly outraged, and then confused. South Carolina State Senator John M. “Jake” Knotts Jr. (whew!) said last Thursday on a local radio show: “We already got one raghead in the White House — we don’t need another in the governor’s mansion … She’s a raghead that’s ashamed of her religion … Continue reading

Vier mehr Tage! Vier mehr Tage!

Okay, so apparently not all of you prepared for the end of WWII the same way I did. I wrote yesterday about why Horst Köhler, the former President of Germany, resigned Monday. In doing so, I quoted the statements that proved to be his undoing, but didn’t translate them from German. So what he said … Continue reading

Four more days! Four more days!

German President Horst Köhler resigned Monday. There was widespread criticism about his basic political philosophy after he said the following on Deutschlandradio: “Meine Einschätzung ist aber, dass insgesamt wir auf dem Wege sind, doch auch in der Breite der Gesellschaft zu verstehen, dass ein Land unserer Größe mit dieser Außenhandelsorientierung und damit auch Außenhandelsabhängigkeit auch … Continue reading

America: Speak Out!

I don’t have to tell you that democrats are out of touch with everyday Americans. They couldn’t care less what you think, because they already think they know what’s best for you. House Republicans, on the other hand, really care. They care so much that they’ve made a website dedicated to letting normal Americans suggest … Continue reading

And He, Like, You Know, Believes It

Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele is being attacked from the left for the crime of not being sufficiently anti-Rand Paul. On This Week this week, he had this exchange with Jake Tapper, regarding Paul’s apparent view that individuals should have the right to discriminate on the basis of race: TAPPER: Fair enough, but just … Continue reading

Poll: Why didn’t Rachel Maddow give Rand Paul a fair shake?

Rachel Maddow had Rand Paul on her show last Wednesday, the day after his decisive victory in the Kentucky Republican primary. During the interview she asked him about his position on the 1964 Civil Rights Act. He gave an answer which has turned out to be controversial: that he supports the freedom of individuals to … Continue reading

The Freedom of the Oppress

Well, Rand Paul apparently has a problem saying on television the same sort of thing he’ll have published in a newspaper. In 2002, he wrote a letter to the Bowling Green Daily News to criticize the paper for endorsing the Fair Housing Act. From the letter: “A recent Daily News editorial supported the Federal Fair … Continue reading

Civil Rights vs. Civil Liberties

Rand Paul (Ron Paul’s son) was just chosen as the Republican nominee for the Senate in Kentucky, and he’s hit the ground running. He’s already getting a lot of press for some controversial opinions that he’s expressed, which as we all know is free publicity. He’s getting this free coverage for saying that he believes … Continue reading
