Good. It's the result of bullshit statistics, not actual economic facts.

Sad but true: "A left-winger wouldn't, because from his perspective, the GM bailout was more successful than TARP."

Except that the GM bailout will lose $$. Liberals know this but still think it was great policy. Pissing away your $$ is good policy. Remember that.

Newt's in third. Beating Paul, Bachmann, Cain et al.
CNN Poll: Rick Perry 28%, Mitt Romney 21%, Newt Gingrich 10%. Perry is done, over, finished, toast. Except for the fact that he's leading the Republican field by 7 points in this latest CNN poll c...

Why have a blog if you're not going to do it right? Why waste the time?

So Michelle Malkin has outed herself as an anti-vaccine weirdo. Gotta say, I didn't see that one coming.

And back to the matter at hand - with all due respect, Michelle Malkin is not a "weirdo" for questioning vaccines. They may be the greatest thing since cornflakes, but questioning things is ALWAYS good. If it can't stand up to questioning, it isn't worth anything. So I would respectfully ask that you would reconsider your comment on Michelle. :)

So, the argument for why conservatives should support Romney is that he won't really scare independent voters by taking a strong stand for conservative ideas. Milquetoast, it's what's for dinner!!

Other than incessant media insistence, is there any evidence that milquetoast appeals more to moderates and independents?

I'm always amazed at how some folks think social media is some kind of panacea. I've just never seen how 15 tweets per day = unlimited potential. Sure, you could tweet all the time and eventually you'll get noticed, but who has time for that?

I'm just not seeing much added value for most professions. Sure, it's fun to use and you might interact w/ cool folks, but outside of that, what can you do there that you can't do normally?

Honestly, that new Herman Cain ad is beyond bizarre. Not sure what they're trying to accomplish with that one. Weird.

TARP is one of those things that proves Churchill's adage about the speed at which lies move, and how slow the truth can be.

Oh, right. The only time regulation is bad is when it's abortionists who are being regulated. What a bunch of losers.

I think Perry was right about the border. Fences are fine, but you show me a 12ft fence and I'll show you a 14ft ladder. Every other country that has tried to build a truly secure border has done so w/ boots on the ground, not fences.
