Is There an Echo In Here?

Both “L” and “l” libertarians have been saying this for years: Having pushed back against the conventional wisdom on the Tea Party costing Republicans, I will say this: conservatives ought to seek out higher quality candidates as their standard-bearers. If Joe Miller comes up short in Alaska, he won’t have lost because he was too […]

Ain’t That the Truth

The American Spectator on Obama’s reaction to the Democrats various losses in every form of government last night: The only difference now is that when [Obama] ignores Republican ideas, he’ll no longer be able to forge ahead and ram his agenda through Congress anyway. Ain’t that the truth. The potential gridlock is as good news […]

Massive Campaign Donations

Despite the popular belief of leftists, massive campaign donations aren’t just for monocle and tophat wearing corporate masters anymore. The Wall Street Journal: The American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees is now the biggest outside spender of the 2010 elections, thanks to an 11th-hour effort to boost Democrats that has vaulted the public-sector […]

The Ultimate Scare Tactic That Won’t Work

Scaring voters is a time tested way of manipulating polities into voting in a particular way in order to achieve prescribed results, but they’re not fool-proof. Especially when all you have is a bucket of shit to support that agenda. But the Demotards are peddle-to-the-fucking-metal with what they seem to think is their ace in […]

Spot On

As an overtly conservative outlet I tend to disagree with The American Spectator fairly often, and sometimes vehemently, but this post concerning America’s refutation of Obama and his back-asswards progressive policy is spot on: I’ve written that progressivism as an ideology has trouble admitting that the majority oppose their ideas on principle. Progressives have dreamed […]

Why the DC Establishment is Distasteful

The New York Times on a close Senate Race between Majority Leader and longtime establishment Democrat Harry Reid, and Sharron Angle, where a Tea Party candidate may beat the most powerful man in Washington behind Obama: Mr. Reid’s advisers made clear that the only way they could win was to make Ms. Angle so distasteful […]

Good Try, Salon

Gabriel Winant of Salon: It’s time to stop taking libertarianism seriously. So let me see if I can follow your argument (considering I’m apparently so fucking stupid as to actually subscribe to libertarian thought).  Libertarianism is so stupid, juvenile, selfish and bratty that we should all stop taking it seriously, yet Salon has been actively […]
