Obamacare: The Greatest Show On Earth

Roll Call posted a fascinating article on Wednesday detailing the growing sense of concern (or perhaps it would be more accurate to call it PANIC!) that many Congressional Democrats—especially those in marginally safe to contested seats—are experiencing over the rolling catastrophe of Obamacare’s implementation. For those who opposed the passage of the law in the first place, it’s a somewhat satisfying … Read More

Pelosi: Happy New Year, Peasants! Oh, and feel free to die in a fire.

Allahpundit is right:  this is the perfect way for Nancy Pelosi to end her tenure as Speaker of the House.  Paternalistic?  Check.  Arrogant?  Check.  Detached from reality?  Checky-check-check-check. And so our shameless, reckless, intrusive, imperious, and borderline-tyrannical 111th Congress slimes its way across the finish line without a hint of regret or introspection.  Here’s hoping that there’s enough time to … Read More

Paul Ryan (R-Awesometown) Attempts Adult Conversation With Democrat

Naturally, the effort failed, as Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz is not an adult, but rather a political point-scoring machine.  Granted, a badly programmed and defective machine, but a machine nonetheless: What we learn from this, once again, is that a) Democrats have no ability to look beyond the next election, and b) Paul Ryan is still Superman.

Jonah Goldberg reprints an e-mail from a commenter whose political hobbyhorse has been observing the left and it’s political hobbyhorse: Dig deeper and you find the liberal narrative in full. The long winter out of power for the left, as the theory goes, starts with the Clintons failure to get healthcare. The first mistake was trying to ram it through Congress. The second … Read More

Profiles In Congressional Awfulness: John Kerry

Former Presidential Candidate and current Senatorial Embarrassment John Kerry opened his mouth today and a whole bunch of stupid stuff fell out of it.  This condition, of course, is rampant among our congressional representatives these days; Kerry’s case is, I fear, terminal.  From a U.S. News article entitled “John Kerry Says Voter Anger at Washington Is Hypocritical“: Times are tough, … Read More

Democrats Seek Help From Psychologist

Levin

I don’t see how this is going to help, as psychologists can’t prescribe drugs and the Dems are clearly off their meds.  But for what it’s worth: …retiring Democratic Senator Byron Dorgan (N.D.) recently brought psychologist Drew Westen in to see the Democratic caucus, because Dorgan is convinced that the Democrats’ problem is one of messaging. This always comes up, … Read More
