Rollin’ On Obama’s Death Bus

Out Of Iowa

The dust from the Ames Straw Poll continues to settle, and the outflow from a big weekend in politics is decidedly worth a gander, with news on Texas Governor Rick Perry, Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, Congressman Ron Paul of Texas, Congresswoman Michele Bachmann of Minnesota and even President Barack Obama.

Just A Jealous Guy

Last week, NAACP President Ben Jealous, in Los Angeles to address the group’s 102nd annual convention, railed against voter ID laws, claiming that efforts to ensure ballots are not cast fraudulently are racist.

Representative Gabby Giffords made a miraculous recovery and retook her place among her colleagues in a remarkably short span, and Democratic mouthpiece Chris Matthews celebrated her return to the House floor by resurrecting the rhetoric of “conservatives = terrorists.”

Father knows best (and so does Mother)

Last week, Chip Wood detailed his disgust with the ongoing budget “crisis” in his column. Chip pointed out the basic mendacity with which the Democrats approached every aspect of fiscally managing the Federal coffers. I happen to agree with Chip. I’m also meaner than he is, so I’ll go one step further: Grow up, Washington.
