  • Freedom starts at home

    There is quiet self-contradiction developing in the Tea Party movement that needs addressing, for it is a contradiction that, if left uncorrected, could turn a force with truly revolutionary potential into one more element of an oligarchic political stasis. This movement, which as a culture attempts in many ways to be an imitation of the …

  • Palin vs. Paul

    Here’s an interesting article from Politico about the division of support among the Tea Party crowd. Personally, I am no fan of Sarah Palin and the hyper-evangelical social conservatives that tend to throw her their support. However, looking past the social side, these supporters will gladly throw support to the libertarian camp on fiscal issues. There …

  • Ron Paul Loses by 1 (Yes, ONE) Vote in SRLC Straw Poll

    Reporting outside the Hilton Conference center in the Big Easy: Just as the headline reads, Ron Paul lost the 2010 Presidential Straw Poll by one single vote to former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney.  This one vote, however, really comes off as a big win for Congressman Paul–Evangelicals for Mitt spent tens of thousands trying to influence …

  • Sarah Goes South

    Having just watched bits of the Sarah Palin speech at the Southern Republican Leadership Conference, it’s worth confirming what was already known:  She has charisma. Palin opened her speech with a “thank you” to the service industry employees of New Orleans who have been helping the conference to run smoothly, taking note of the hardships …

  • The Obnoxious Emanuel

    It’s no secret that Obama’s Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel is known for his big, gutter mouth. Last week, The Wall Street Journal reported that Emanual commented in a private meeting with liberal special interest groups that Blue Dog Democrats opposing the health care reform bill were “F***ing retarded.” The situation got much worse when …

  • Palin Endorses Rand Paul

    Sarah Palin injected herself into another 2010 campaign Monday, with her endorsement of Rand Paul, son Rep. Ron Paul (R-Tex.), who is running for a U.S. Senate seat in Kentucky. “Governor Palin is providing tremendous leadership as the Tea Party movement and constitutional conservatives strive to take our country back,” Rand Paul said in a …

  • They’re Back — Palin To Campaign For McCain’s Reelection

    (Sigh) I suppose this is Palin’s gift to John McCain for choosing her as his VP pick? Maybe, maybe not. However, this does speak plenty about her creadibilty as an alleged “conservative” — not to mention how much of a contradiction it will now be for her to speak at coming Tea Parties. Either way, …

  • What will Big Government Republicans do NOW?

    According to US News and World Report, citing an anonymous source, Sarah Palin has declined an invitation to speak at this year’s CPAC.  It will be interesting to see how this plays out, as I’m sure conservatives will be questions her motives for declining the invitation in the coming weeks. Palin undermining her own popularity …

  • 2010 Venn Diagram

    I’m not saying I agree with this, and I’m definitely unsure about the wisdom of putting Sarah Palin’s name on the same chart as Ron Paul’s.  But it’s interesting.  Thoughts?
