mitt romney is her valentine

He may be out of the race, but Kathryn Jean Lopez of National Review Online still has a crush on The Anchorman: Way too often in pop culture, men are portrayed as dopes; think about just about any sitcom. The dad/husband is portrayed as a doofus. What’s wrong with having somebody in public life who’s like Mitt Romney — a capable, experienced executive who loves his country and also happens to be a God-fearing father and husband? That’s not a bad thing for Americans to see. Forgive him for being easy on the eyes. I bet Lopez was a big Lyle Waggoner…

superdelegates know what’s best for you

The concept of superdelegates is absurd, but Clinton crony Lanny Davis‘ defense of their “independence” is even more ridiculous: There is certainly a valid concern expressed by those who fear that the 796 “superdelegates” to the August 2008 Democratic National Convention — Democratic elected officials, party officials and VIPs – might make the difference in delivering the nomination to the candidate who wins fewer pledged delegates out of the primaries and caucuses. To some, such a result would seem “undemocratic.” But let’s not rewrite history. When the superdelegates were first created by the Democratic National Committee in 1982, they were intended to…

the blogopshere says what (valentine’s day edition)

Originally posted 2/14/07: Well, V-Day was a total bust, but don’t worry, ya’ll, it wasn’t Rand-O’s fault. Blame it on Hallmark. I was there yesterday, looking for a card for my baby doll, and it occurred to me — there’s no same-sex Valentine’s Day cards! I was so offended I just collapsed into fetal position and started weeping. The clerk came over and asked me to stop making a scene and then I really lost it. “Oh, so now I know what it takes for you to notice me!” He totally didn’t get it! I wept some more then finally mustered the…

a clinton zealot accuses obama supporters of zealotry

Hillbot lackey Taylor Marsh says the Obama campaign is a cult. Since her blog is a virtual echo chamber of Clinton propaganda, you can guess where that slander was cultivated. As for the conversation in comment sections across the web that Obama’s campaign is a “cult,” well, many of us who are watching what is happening are worried. We’re not in small numbers. We’re nominating a president, not a motivational preacher, Elmer Gantry, or L. Ron Hubbard replacement. (Funny that she mentions LRH, since Hillbot’s hubby went to bat for Scientology in the cult’s dispute with the German government as a “favor”…

that was then, this is now

August 2007: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton offered an unusual defense of a hated Washington insider caste — lobbyists — before an audience of political outsiders in Chicago Saturday, drawing boos from the audience at the YearlyKos Convention and offering an opening to her rivals. “A lot of those lobbyists, whether you like it or not, represent real Americans,” the New York senator said in defense of her decision to accept campaign contributions from lobbyists. “They represent nurses, they represent social workers, yes, they represent corporations that employ a lot of people.” Feb. 14, 2008: Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) trashed an array…
