Payback's a ... you know

Companies from France and Germany, among other countries, are being excluded from competition for contracts to rebuild Iraq. Of course, apologists for the Axis of Weasels are decrying the move as counterproductive. Please, can someone explain to me using something I'd like to call "logic" why we should award contracts (after all, much of this […]

The G** word

Where's the wood chipper?

Former vice-president and professional tree-impressionist Al Gore has sided with National Review magazine and will endorse the angry left's favorite candidate, Howard Dean. Put the tree in the wood chipper, Al Gore's political career is over. Democratic Leadership Council. Moderate Democrat. Pragmatic. Finding the center. Co-opting your opponent's issues. Gone, all gone. Syndicated radio talk […]

What kind of #consistency can we expect from the fact-checking professionals at PolitiFact?

The inconsistent kind (how it started, how it's going):


New column: Newsom's electric cars nirvana collides with reality- CalMatters

This is clever framing to preserve the narrative without actually touching what’s at stake.

Here’s what the poll actually says:

📊 37% say abortion should be “always legal” (preserving Roe)
📊 60% say there should be limits on abortion (which would overturn Roe)

Meet the Press@MeetThePress

BUT abortion is now center stage:

60% say abortion should be legal all or most of the time — the highest ever in our polls — versus 37% who say it should illegal all or most of the time.
