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
Shut your stupid yap, you smug jackhole.
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
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.
…and should be kept away from Congress like the rest of them all the same. Virginia Congressman Tom Perriello had this to say back in March: “If there’s one thing I’ve learned up here (in Washington) and I didn’t really need to come up here to learn it, is the only way to get Congress to balance the budget is … Read More
Larry Kudlow got this out of Barney Frank: “I hope by next year we’ll have abolished Fannie and Freddie,” he said. Remarkable. And he went on to say that “it was a great mistake to push lower-income people into housing they couldn’t afford and couldn’t really handle once they had it.” He then added, “I had been too sanguine about Fannie … Read More
No doubt you’ve heard the story by now of Alvin “No Comment” Greene, who won the South Carolina Democrat Party primary for US Senate. He’s the nominee, with 61 percent of the vote, to run against (and presumably be slaughtered by) incumbent Republican Senator Jim DeMint. The odd thing about Greene is… well, everything about the guy is odd. For … Read More
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
Alternate headline: THEY LIED. But we knew that before they passed this rancid loaf, didn’t we? And frankly, they’ve been confirming that ever since. Regardless, here’s the news that anyone with any intelligence and honesty knew was coming: Congressional Budget Office estimates released Tuesday predict the health care overhaul will likely cost about $115 billion more in discretionary spending over … Read More
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
