[5440 note: Making sure Republicans lose, originally published at the whitestick papers. Reprinted by permission of the author.] Almost since its founding in the late 1850’s, the Republican Party has been plagued by internal strife. It’s a party of moral righteousness (and, often, self-righteousness) that takes founding principles very, very seriously. Clashes between firebrand ideologues […]

Liberal Tolerance On Display – Gracious In Victory, As Always

You may recall the Oregon businessman who took offense to Obama’s “You didn’t build that” quote and put a large sign in his shop window stating, “Hey Obama, I built my business by myself, you lousy incompetent excuse for a President.” Provocative, to be sure. But understandable, given this President’s insistence on continuing the politics […]

If the Romney campaign flagrantly violated the law in this manner, I can guarantee the Justice Department would be all over it, and it would be front page news for a week.   But if a Democrat does it, they shrug their shoulders and look the other way. The New York Post reports: The Obama […]
