**Posted by Phineas Could it be true? Could this anti-constitutional monstrosity of a bill, which was rammed down the throats of a nation that didn’t want it and still doesn’t want it and which is already doing untold damage to our healthcare and the economy, have been born of nothing more than a need for […]

**Posted by Phineas From the RNC, via Roger Kimball, presenting Obama 2008 vs Obama 2012: You know what they say, Mr. President: “Fool me once, shame on you…” Well, to quote The Who, we won’t get fooled again. PS: Kimball’s essay introducing the video is a good one: “Feeling Sorry for Maureen Dowd.” PPS: Romney-Ryan 2012, […]

People on the Right have for years complained about a media establishment biased toward the Left, only to be roundly mocked as paranoid, even when some evidence shows they were right. (For example) During the 2008 campaign, it became increasingly apparent that the major media had given up objectivity and was openly pulling for the […]

Yesterday on my way home from work, and after doing some grocery shopping, I listened to Sean Hannity’s 4 PM segment. The issue up for discussion at the top of the hour was whether or not the Obama administration was playing racial politics with the 2008 New Black Panthers voter intimidation incident in Philadelphia. A […]

Is it over for Norm Coleman?

Posted by: ST on June 7, 2009 at 11:40 am » 7 Comments

The Politico reports this morning that things aren’t looking good for Norm Coleman in his bid to defeat liberal laughingstock Al Franken to retain his seat in the Senate: Seven months after Minnesota’s Senate election, the state’s highest court hasn’t reached a decision but election law experts agree: Norm Coleman doesn’t have a prayer.

From an upcoming book on Obama’s campaign for President by former Newsweek reporter Richard Wolffe: His wife is now Obama’s secretary of state, but Obama had some tough words for the actions of former President Bill Clinton during the campaign. “We had to figure out how to deal with a former president who was just […]


Screwed up in Minnesota

Looks like it’s just about over for Norm Coleman: In a potentially decisive ruling, a panel of three judges today ordered up to 400 new absentee ballots opened and counted, far fewer than Republican Norm Coleman had sought in his effort to overcome a lead held by DFLer Al Franken. The ballots appear to include […]


The latest on the Franken/Coleman contest

Posted by: ST on January 6, 2009 at 7:10 pm » 3 Comments

The Minnesota bloggers over at Power Line remind everyone that the Senate race in their state is not over in spite of the fact that Franken was “declared” the winner yesterday, and argue pursuasively that Norm Coleman has legitimate legal challenges that need to be resolved. Even the liberal Star Tribune supports Coleman’s legal challenges […]
