The Phantom Koch Menace

Let’s face it: the Democrats are scared. Polling shows them down, Nate Silver now projects the Republicans to gain the Senate this year and while Hillary is popular in Democrat circles, it is quite likely she would lose a general election. There is a very real possibility the Republicans could control both Houses and the White House in 2017.

There are many ways for the Democrats to respond to this downturn in their political fortunes. … Read more

Can’t say I am surprised

I have dealt with plenty of libs that have made the argument that stupid rednecks vote against their own interests when they don’t vote for nanny state democrats, the assumption being that nanny state democrats and their massive vote buying scheme is something that benefits people the left feels are too stupid to do things on their own. And you bet that rednecks, along with minorities, are all seen as people that can’t do anything … Read more

The Threat of Liberty

Via Reason, I found this article which digs into the spate of vehemently anti-Libertarians screeds which have been recently popping up on liberal websites and publications. Salon became a hard-core anti-libertarian site so gradually I hardly even noticed. Slate has been shifting against libertarians. The New Republic published a rancid little article trying to dig into the supposed libertarian ideals of Glenn Greenwald, Julian Assange and Edward Snowden. LGF and Balloon Juice have been screaming … Read more

The Democrats Open the Gubernatorial Clown Car

One thing I’ve mentioned in this space before is that while I frequently despair of Republicans on the national level, there has been a surge of Republican governors who are competent, conservative and effective. This can not, however, be said of their Democratic counterparts. Last week, I countered the assertion that Jerry Brown is the Best. Governor. Ever. But two more races are drawing attention to the complete dearth of ideas that is the Democratic … Read more

Democrats Do What Democrats Do

The GOP’s shutdown strategy has predictably failed. Obamacare, despite its disastrous opening, is not going anywhere. The GOP is hemorrhaging at the polls and taking blame for the situation. The business community is bringing increasing pressure on the GOP to make a deal. So for the last few days, the GOP and Obama have been in talks about both the short- and long-term deals they want to make, starting with raising the debt limit.… Read more

WaPo gets 4 out of 5 right (accidentally?)..

Well, as was previously mentioned, the latest information about employment in the US is down right shitty. That’s after 5 years of liberals pretending they were going to fix that with green energy jobs, a whole bunch of other nonsense that killed jobs instead, and a whole lot of what not, things are getting worse, and doing so faster. At least they no longer blame Boosh. So WaPo has an article that for once Read more

Clowns are evil!

I knew it. I have always had a problem with clowns. Never understood what was funny about some dude that smells like sweat, puke, and alcohol, is painted up, wears ridiculous shoes, has a big nose and oft freaky hair, and needs a giant smile painted on to get close to children. And now it seems others are catching on. Clowns are evil! And the biggest clowns I know all hold positions of power … Read more

Waters on Fi Services

OK, then:

Democrats just elected Maxine Waters to the top Democratic spot on the House Financial Services committee.

This is really an extraordinary development. “Flabbergasting” might be a more apt word. Leave aside the recent ethics investigation over whether she used her position on the committee to help a bank her husband was involved with (which ended with her chief of staff getting reprimanded). Maxine Waters reliably delivers the craziest questions and the most

Whither California?

Many of you, especially those of you who live there, know how screwed up the state of California is. For a long time, the Democrats have blamed this sad state of affairs not on their idiocy, their subservience to public labor unions or their refusal to control spending, but on the Republican minority in the legislature.

Looks like they are going to run out of excuses soon:

Mitt Romney lost to President Obama by a

The Party of Choice

Reason TV documents what I’ve been saying for years: that the Democrats are “pro-choice” only as far as abortion goes. On everything else, they are about as anti-choice as anyone you could imagine:



Now you may think that Reason found a bunch of freaks to make their point. You would be wrong. Most of what they articulate is straight out of the Democratic Party platform: anti-school-choice, anti-right-to-work, pro-Nanny-State (although it bears pointing out that the … Read more
