In Praise of Scott Walker

It’s been a while since I took to the blog to praise an awesome governor; Chris Christie got this treatment a while back, I know. Heck, it’s been a while since I noted how awesome Paul Ryan is. I’m way behind. That being said, Scott Walker is awesome and Wisconsin is lucky to have him in the Governorship. If only … 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.

Why is Obamacare so unpopular when individual portions of it poll so well? …that seven-hour televised exercise had the unintended consequence of showing the Republicans to be not only highly informed on the subject, but also, as even Obama was forced to admit, possessed of principled objections — contradicting the ubiquitous Democratic/media meme that Republican opposition was nothing but nihilistic … Read More

This Just In: Paul Ryan Still Possibly Superman

The Weekly Standard: The bottom line? Despite the liberal pushback, Ryan’s arguments remain compelling. (The Journal has more on them here.) Which shouldn’t come as a surprise. When a politician finds his moment, everything breaks his way.
