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 [...]

A SERIOUS GOP ALTERNATIVE TO OBAMACARE

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss the health care reform plan that Dr. Tom Coburn, Senator from Oklahoma, and two other GOP Senators have proposed as a replacement for the disastrous Obamacare: The most frequently repeated Democrat talking point concerning Republican opposition to Obamacare is the claim that the GOP has offered no alternative. This [...]

CONSERVATISM NEEDS A FIGHTING GENERAL

In my latest American Spectator column, I discuss the cowardice of the GOP on the question of defunding Obamacare. The Obamacare defunding battle highlights the desperate need for GOP leaders with more to contribute than platitudes and compromise. Last week, Karl Rove opined that a GOP attempt to defund Obamacare would be analogous to Pickett’s [...]

IS IT CHURLISH TO SAY “I TOLD YOU SO”?

I January I wrote a column titled, “The Thelma & Louise Party,” in which I said that a Romney nomination spelled doom. I said that he was Obama’s preferred opponent, and many Dems said so as well: As former DNC Chair Donna Brazile admitted after a recent Republican debate, and Peter Ferrara reiterated on Wednesday, [...]

SPEECHES AT THE “WHITE” GOP CONVENTION

NBC’s whitebread “journalists” were so desperate to portray the RNC convention as one dominated by white men, they turned the cameras away when Mia Love, Artur Davis, Condi Rice and numerous other people of color spoke last night and tonight. Here are a few of those speeches: Mia Love Artur Davis Condi Rice I hate [...]

OBAMA’S MEDISCARE CAMPAIGN FLOPS

As soon as it became known that Paul Ryan was Romney’s pick for VP, the White House and its media lickspittles attempted to depict him as some sort of monster who wanted to take Granny’s health care away. Well, it looks like seniors aren’t quite as dumb as the President thinks they are: In Florida, [...]

FROM HOPE & CHANGE TO DOPE & CHAINS

In today’s American Spectator, I discuss Joe Biden’s “chains” comment and how his slimy race-baiting is the inevitable complement to “Mediscare” and “the war on women.” As everyone in the galaxy has by now learned, our esteemed Vice President spoke before a group of Barack Obama’s remaining supporters last week and included the following in [...]

THE WINNER OF OUR DISCONTENT

My column in today’s American Spectator discusses the destructive effect of conservative kvetching about Romney’s probable victory in the race for the GOP presidential nomination: Conservatives are queasy about Mitt Romney, and with good reason. Questions remain about his commitment to, and even his comprehension of, conservatism … Nonetheless, in the absence of some truly [...]

ROMNEY LIED: HE DID FORCE CATHOLIC HOSPITALS TO ISSUE MORNING AFTER PILLS

During last night’s debate, John King tossed what he apparently thought was a softball question to Mitt Romney about a decision the latter made as Governor of Massachusetts concerning Catholic hospitals: Governor Romney, both Senator Santorum and Speaker Gingrich have said during your tenure as governor, you required Catholic hospitals to provide emergency contraception to rape victims … Governor, did [...]
