Why Libertarian Kids, Not Drones, Scare McCain and Graham

Jennifer Rubin—WaPo’s token conservative—said it perfectly: McCain lost his cool with Rand Paul and sounded like the old man down the street screaming to the new kids on the block, “Get off my lawn!” The real reason McCain and Lindsey Graham embarrassed themselves on the floor of Senate had nothing to do with what Rand …

Why John McCain Wants the GOP To Go First

Elephant Dung

John McCain doesn’t want the Republican Party to outlive him. He’s afraid. Afraid that, after he’s gone, his political widow will remarry someone younger, sexier, more fun. Thursday, March 7, 2013: Senate Office Building, Washington, DC In the dark cloisters of his Senate office, McCain leans back in his chair, tie loosened, jacket tossed casually …

This Is The Infographic That The Whole Republican Party Is Freaking Out About

The 3 million McCain voter who didn’t vote for Romney didn’t stay and they didn’t vote third party. They died. To survive, the GOP needs to stop being afraid of Millennials and tell them truth: they can move out of mom and dad’s house, they can drop out of school, they can quit their dead-end job with the idiot supervisor. But they can’t get away from government and debt.

Did Lloyd Smith and Jo Ann Emerson Plan This All Along?

In an open Republican primary in Missouri’s 8th Congressional District, a solid conservative would beat an establishment “my turn” Republican, hands down. And the Missouri GOP would hate it. That’s why I smell a rat. Would you be surprised to learn that Jo Ann Emerson and Lloyd Smith had this switcheroo planned months ago?  You …

Obama the Reckless

On Saturday, the United States suffered its highest human lost since the Afghanistan conflict began.  At least 38 elite, brave American warriors died in combat. Flasback to May 23 of this year. That’s when Barack Obama made the surprise announcement that he would begin accelerated troop withdrawals in July.  That timetable meant beginning the withdrawal …

Steve Tilley vs. Fiscal Responsibility

Four men risked their political lives to help solve the problem of our lifetimes, but they forgot to massage Steve Tilley’s monstrous ego. When John McCain (R-AZ) and Roy Blunt (R-MO) agree with Michele Bachmann and Rush Limbaugh, you can bet the issue is beyond debate. In this case, the issue is the massive U.S. …

The Starkest of Contrasts

We’ve all heard John McCain’s horrible experience in Vietnam.  I’ve never before heard him tell it. What strikes me is the enormous contrast between him and Barack Obama.  John McCain has lived a noble, heroic, remarkable life.  Barack Obama’s read about such things. John McCain left it all on the battle field, then in a …

McCain – Palin Rally in O’Fallon, Missouri, Is Still On

We’re getting ready to head out to the McCain Rally in O’Fallon, Missouri.  I just checked with the campaign and the rally is still on.  John McCain is stopping in New Orleans to check on hurricane preparations before the rally, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it starts late. I’ll have photos and a report …

Palin Pick Energizing the Right **Update**

Conservative spirits soared like roman candles three times in my life: Ronald Reagan’s emergence in 1980 Newt Gingrich’s Contract with America in 1994 Sarah Palin’s selection as McCain’s vice president in 2008 Besides the math (each event exactly 14 years apart), Palin’s selection could change the face of politics in America for a long time. …
