THESE SENATORS DESERVE TO BE FIRED

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the need to give six Democrat Senators the bum’s rush tomorrow. They ignored the will of the voters on Obamacare, so the voters should ignore their desire to be reelected: What would happen if you ignored multiple requests from your employer to stop wasting time on your pet project [...]

WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH MILTON WOLF?

In today’s American Spectator I discuss the potentially disastrous effect of a defeated Tea Partier’s refusal to endorse the winner of the Kansas Senate primary and thus focus Sunflower State conservatives on their main task—defeating Democrat-in-disguise Greg Orman: It has occasionally been claimed that the Civil War began not at Fort Sumter in South Carolina [...]

THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN WINNERS AND WHINERS

In today’s American Spectator, I point out that it would be suicidal for conservatives to sit out the November midterms simply because their favorite candidates lost to “establishment Republicans” in the primaries: Democrats think conservatives in general, and Tea Partiers in particular, are stupid. Here’s how to reinforce that belief: Sit out the 2014 congressional [...]

THE GRAND OLD POSEURS

In today’s American Spectator, I vent my spleen on John Boehner and Mitch McConnell for their empty posturing regarding IPAB: Last week, Speaker of the House John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell ostentatiously announced their intention to fight implementation of the Independent Payment Advisory Board (IPAB). They sent a letter to the President [...]

VIDEO: HITLER FINDS OUT THE GOP HAS RETAKEN THE HOUSE

This may be the best of the “Hitler finds out? series. And, considering his notorious aversion to news that doesn’t flatter his vanity, I wouldn’t be surprised if our President reacted to the GOP landslide in much the same fashion as Hitler does in this clip. My favorite line: We rammed through health care … [...]

VIDEO: BOEHNER VOWS THAT OCARE WILL “NEVER, EVER … EVER” BE IMPLEMENTED

President Obama obviously didn’t get the point of last Tuesday, but John Boehner certainly did. In this interview, he makes it clear that the new House majority will use all its powers to bring down this nanny-state boondoggle: We can dent this, kick it, slow it down to make sure it never happens. And trust me, [...]

THE GOP PICKED UP A RECORD 680 STATE LEGISLATURE SEATS ON TUESDAY

Talk about a tsunami!! Tuesday saw the largest gain of state seats in the modern era, drowning the previous record of 628 set in 1974 (right after the Watergate fiasco): The GOP gained majorities in at least 14 state house chambers. They now have unified control—-meaning both chambers—-of 26 state legislatures. The GOP now holds the [...]

FUNNY VIDEO “TRIBUTE” TO NANCY PELOSI: THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES

Nancy Pelosi’s response to her involuntary termination as Speaker of the House suggests that she hasn’t quite absorbed its significance for her own life: We have taken the country in a new direction and we are not going back to the failed policies of the past. Er … Nancy … You don’t get to drive anymore. [...]

HOUSE: PRO-OCARE DEMS HIT FAR WORSE THAN THEIR ANTI-OCARE BRETHREN

Last March, when ObamaCare passed in the House, I thought it was an irrational and suicidal vote for many incumbent Dems. I was genuinely shocked that so many were dumb enough to do it. Philip Klein has done a quick and dirty analysis and, while hardly the last word we’ll hear on this subject, it suggests that a “yes” [...]

GALLUP: DEM HOUSE MAJORITY IS TOAST

No matter how many tantrums the President throws; no matter how much pettifoggery congressional Dems perpetrate; no matter how many whoppers the media tell—-the Pelosi majority is gone: [R]egardless of turnout, the Republicans will win more than the 40 seats needed to give them the majority in the U.S. House. The generic ballot shows a GOP lead [...]
