No one believes Greece will make good on the agreement, and Greece didn’t want the deal. Germany demanded it, and Greece surrendered. But Greece will default at some point.…

Mastering One’s Domain

I own a ton of domain names. Most of them I’ll never use. I bought them–and pay for them–because I don’t want anyone else to have them. Many contain “teabaggers.” Many contain “teaparty.” Many contain “Hennessy,” although the cognac people had sucked up quite a few of those already. Everyone should invest in domains containing…

Mike Flynn for Congress

I was hungover. I sat in a booth at the Holiday Inn in Quincy, Illinois, with my wife and two friends from St. Louis. The day before was my wife’s birthday, which she graciously spent waiting for me to speak at a tea party in Quincy. Angela and I sat with Jim Durbin and Ben…

Boehner’s Purge

You might have noticed that my report on the Speaker election process lacked enthusiasm. Now you know why. Boehner is moving quickly to purge conservatives from all committees of meaning.

Why Ann Wagner Is Wrong to Attack Heritage Action

Accountability? We don’t need no stinking accountability. No, Ann Wagner didn’t actually say that. But her comments to a 2nd District Republican committee meeting on Tuesday gave at least one attendee the impression that Mrs. Wagner opposes the idea of conservatives holding Congress accountable.

Today, Erick responded to widespread criticism of his decision to protect the GOP Chairman from questions about tactics in the Mississippi Republican Senate Runoff.

Chairman Ed Martin Demands Mississippi Investigation

I’m on the road this week, but I’m thrilled to get this email from Missouri GOP Chairman Ed Martin: Over the past few days, I have reached out to many but not all of you about some of what Missouri Republicans were asking about re Mississippi especially about the racially divisive ads run in support…

The Masque of the Red Death – American Style

The “Red Death” had long devastated the country. No pestilence had ever been so fatal, or so hideous. Blood was its Avatar and its seal—the redness and the horror of blood. There were sharp pains, and sudden dizziness, and then profuse bleeding at the pores, with dissolution. The scarlet stains upon the body and especially upon the…

The New American Political Dichotomy

Before we get to politics, I want to tell you about a business exercise. The Universal Veto Game Sometimes my job as a consultant involves helping people decide what to do when no ideas have a consensus.
