A sin worse than murder

5:26 PM 03/08/2012

So to recap: Rush Limbaugh said some nasty things about a Georgetown law student named Sandra Fluke. Congressional Democrats, and then the president himself, leaped to Fluke’s defense. Limbaugh apologized, but it wasn’t enough. The story dominated cable news. Dozens of companies abandoned Limbaugh’s show.

TUCKER CARLSON: Andrew Breitbart, RIP

12:17 PM 03/01/2012

He’ll likely be remembered as a political figure, but I don’t recall Andrew Breitbart ever mentioning electoral politics. It bored him. He cared about culture and music and people, and in many meals together over the years that’s what he talked about, invariably at high volume with hand gestures.

Sophie’s choice? We choose survival

The current meltdown on Capitol Hill comes as no surprise to anyone who’s been paying attention for the last 30 years. It’s been obvious for decades that at some point the U.S. government would be unable to make good on the promises it has made to its citizens. There isn’t enough money in the country to pay for it all.

Mitch McConnell’s horrifying conclusion

11:09 PM 07/18/2011

The debt limit plan designed by Senator Mitch McConnell is political engineering of the highest order: Take a thorny issue with lots of angles, distill it to its political essence and come up with a way to minimize your pain and maximize your benefit. No, the plan doesn’t reduce the size of the federal debt by one dollar. It doesn’t limit government or expand freedom, nor does it punish President Obama for failing to do the same. It may, however, give Republican officeholders an issue to run on in the next election cycle. For that reason, many in the Republican leadership consider it brilliant.

When are Republicans going to start explaining how Barack Obama wants to kill your children?

9:16 AM 05/27/2011

Rep. Paul Ryan released a video about Medicare yesterday that you can watch on The Daily Caller. It is a compelling and substantive argument about the nature of the fiscal problems we face and the solutions he and other Republicans are offering. It’s almost certainly doomed. Unless his allies step forward quickly to bolster his points with an effective political argument, Ryan’s ideas will die a swift death.

Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel: What Obama shouldn’t say tonight

12:27 PM 01/12/2011

White House aides have indicated that President Obama will remain non-political in his speech tonight, while at the same time reminding the country of the need for tolerance. Both of these things can’t be true. Five days after Tucson, a speech about tolerance is by definition a political speech.

TheDC analysis by Tucker Carlson and Neil Patel: Exploiting a tragedy

12:51 PM 01/10/2011

Congresswoman Gabrielle Giffords was still in the operating room when the professional Left began to leverage her shooting for political purposes. Markos Moulitsas of the Daily Kos blamed Sarah Palin. MSNBC’s Keith Olbermann wagged a finger at a long list of high-profile conservatives, ranging from newly-elected Florida Congressman Allen West to Glenn Beck. Giffords’s own father suggested “the whole Tea Party” might be suspects in the shootings.

Inside Job: Why won’t National Review explain how it coordinated with the GOP establishment?

8:11 AM 09/27/2010

On Friday, our Jon Ward reported a piece that described how House Republican leaders went about selling their "Pledge to America" to the rest of the Republican caucus. In the story, Ward explained how, at a meeting last Wednesday night of Republican lawmakers, leadership aides passed out an editorial from National Review that strongly endorsed the "Pledge." Notably, the editorial said nothing about the elements of the "Pledge" that have proved unpopular among conservatives, including its now-famous failure to call for a ban on earmarks. Instead, the editorial showered praise on the effort, calling it, among many other flowery things, a “shrewd political document.”

Hip-hop studies the latest in mindless education trend

2:02 PM 05/14/2010

Ever noticed how it’s a lot easier to remember the lyrics to your favorite songs than it is to, say, recite from memory the Periodic Table, or the first 30 lines of "The Canterbury Tales"? Well, in 2004, two recent college graduates named Blake Harrison and Alex Rappaport noticed the same thing. Popular music, they decided, might be a more effective means of teaching children than conventional book study. So the two founded a company they called Flocabulary. Its mission: to teach academic subjects using rap music.
