Politicians to get their Midterm Grades

A new Washington Post/ABC News poll has some findings that should worry both parties. First, an astounding 68% of respondents say the nation is generally on the wrong track. And 72% – nearly three in four – feel the economy is "poor" or "not so good," while a miniscule 1% say the economy is "excellent."…

Rinos Are Not The Enemy

Because it is once again election season, I am hearing from a great many people who sincerely believe RINO is the vilest of all four-letter words. The weird thing is that although I am about as conservative as a person can be, I wind up spending an inordinate amount of time defending them. I understand…

Hillary Clinton — No Longer “Dead Broke” — Strikes Again

I know that piling on is considered bad form, but I can’t help myself. The other day Hillary Clinton uttered something so breathtakingly stupid, that I’d be remiss if I didn’t do my part in pointing out how breathtakingly stupid her remark was. By now I’m sure you’ve heard about it. So what? It’s worth…

The Spectacular Self-Immolation of Wendy R. Davis

Wendy Russell Davis is on fire. And I don’t mean that in a good way. I mean it in a five-alarm, set-her-own-skirt-aflame, billowing-human-torch kind of way. To say that Davis is smokin’ hot is not a compliment. It’s a campaign incineration status update. The Democratic darling of the Hollywood Left and glamour gal of abortion…

Could Limbaugh Be (Gasp) Wrong?

rush-limbaugh

I had better start by declaring that I consider the Rush Limbaugh show the best thing going on radio. I listen to it every chance I get, and Rush has been my treasured companion on many a long trek along the interstate highways. As a result, I have heard him repeat, more times than I…

If It Damages America, It’s Good for Democrats

In almost every area of American life, the better things are, the worse it is for the Democratic Party. And vice versa. Marriage. Even today, after decades of feminism, most Americans agree that it is better for women (and for men) — and better for society — when women (and men) marry. Yet, when women…

“It’s A Mad, Mad, Mad World” and “Sour Notes At The Met”

It just recently came to light that back in February, Joe Biden’s son, Hunter, was booted out of the Navy Reserve when he tested positive for cocaine. A great many people wrote, wondering how it was that the media didn’t cover the story. When I actually delved into it, I discovered that Biden’s daughter, Ashley,…

Family Feud: The GOP Version

When I was a kid growing up in the Bronx I was infinitely more interested in the Yankees, the Knicks, the Rangers and the New York Football Giants (as we used to call them) than I was in politics. What 10-year old kid cares about politics? Ten year old kids in the Bronx care about…
