    Republicans “live in a bubble,” former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum told the Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Policy Orientation for the Texas Legislature Thursday, and are detached from the pop culture and concerns of the average Americans whose allegiance they need to prevail nationally. “We live in a bubble. We don’t realize what’s going on,” said the once and perhaps future presidential candidate who is now head of a movie studio based in Flower Mound that produces Christian entertainment. “How many of you watch prime time network television? I suspect none of you.” He told his audience, which will also be...

    Senate Conservatives Fund ^ | August 29, 2013 | Matt Hoskins
    Lamar Alexander is airing a new TV ad against Obamacare in Tennessee in an attempt to hide his vote to fund Obamacare's implementation and his support for an individual mandate Alexandria, VA -- Senate Conservatives Fund (SCF) responded Thursday to the television ad released by the re-election campaign of U.S. Senator Lamar Alexander (R-TN), which says he stood up to President Obama on Obamacare. Alexander's TV ad includes a clip of an exchange he had with the President at the White House health care summit on February 25, 2010. However, it conveniently leaves out any mention of Alexander's vote to...
  • Novel imagines Sarah Palin presidency ("Christian Nation")

    The Politico ^ | July 3, 2013 | Patrick Gavin
    The McCain/Palin ticket lost in 2008, right? Fiction can change that. ”Christian Nation” is a new novel from lawyer Fred Rich that wonders what would happen if the Republican ticket won in 2008. But Rich goes even further than that, plotting a would-be Palin presidency after McCain passes away in the novel. And although it’s fiction, Rich is dead serious about what a Palin presidency would mean for the country. As the title suggest, Rich is concerned about how religious extremists on the right could upend society. “If somebody like Sarah Palin, who holds so firmly to this conviction that...

    the hill ^ | december 18, 2012 | Molly K. Hooper and Mike Lillis
    Republicans need to "have a discussion on guns" in the wake of last week's grade-school massacre in Newtown, Conn., Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) told his conference Tuesday. Speaking to his troops at a closed-door meeting in the Capitol, Boehner was mindful of conservatives' traditional opposition to new gun restrictions, emphasizing that Republicans wouldn't do "anything knee-jerk," according to a lawmaker in the room. But the Speaker also said he wants to "de-politicize" the issue of gun violence, which has been thrust dreadfully into the national spotlight following the murder of 26 people — 20 of them young school children —...

    The fourth consecutive day of debt meetings between President Barack Obama and congressional leaders from both parties ceased abruptly with Obama walking out of Wednesday's talks, House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) said. Cantor told FOX News Channel that the approximately two-hour meeting at the White House Wednesday "ended with president abruptly walking out of the meeting." He said Obama shoved back from the desk and said "we'll see you tomorrow." "We are very far apart right now," Cantor told FOX, adding, "The progress we made seems to have been erased now." "He [Obama] became very agitated. Said 'Ronald Reagan...

    In a bizarre wrap-up to the 2 p.m. EDT hour of CNN "Newsroom" Thursday, anchor T.J. Holmes confessed his "eco-sins" to the audience. Commemorating the eve of "Earth Day," Holmes admitted to his "green" faults which included driving an SUV by himself to work daily, blasting the heat in his house during winter, and using "less efficient" incandescent bulbs for lighting. "These are my eco-sins. I'm confessing them to you because tomorrow is Earth Day," Holmes announced to the audience. "It often goes ignored by many of us, including me. Not going to ignore it this year. Why? Well, maybe...

    As usual, Mark Steyn nails it in this Investor's Business Daily editorial, as only Steyn can do. Steyn points out what should be obvious, but hasn't been articulated or emphasized often enough, which is, Obama's enemies are all American citizens (FOX News, Rush Limbaugh, Oil Industry, Insurance Industry, Tea Party participants, doctors, drug companies, Wall Street, bankers, etc.). He has no problem with, and his door is always open to, the true foreign enemies of America and freedom, like Ahmadinejad, Kim Jong Il, Chavez, and Castro (also: they are publicly both fond of him and his policies). It's sadly ironic...

    Reactions to Perez Hilton’s tantrums reveal a cultural movement unhinged by the very behavior it claims to abhor. Earlier this year, Hilton, the overtly gay celebrity gossip blogger, went on an expletive-laced tirade against Miss USA contestant Carrie Prejean for acknowledging her support for traditional marriage. But it was Prejean, not Hilton, a pageant judge, who was labeled a “disgrace” by the media and asked by pageant sponsors to publicly apologize. This week, when Hilton used a “gay slur” against Black Eyed Peas singer Will.i.am’s manager, who had just slugged Hilton, it was Hilton, not the manager, who was compelled...

    Two great analyses of Obama's overseas excursion/apology tour. This one from British author and broadcaster Gerald Warren who refers to our lightwalking president in typical British understatement as "President Pantywaist:" President Barack Obama has recently completed the most successful foreign policy tour since Napoleon's retreat from Moscow. You name it, he blew it. What was his big deal economic programme that he was determined to drive through the G20 summit? Another massive stimulus package, globally funded and co-ordinated. Did he achieve it? Not so as you'd notice. Barack is not the first New World ingenue to discover that European leaders...

    Gregory Gets Caught in Political Battle By DAVID BAUDER NEW YORK (AP) - In some circles, having a Web site devoted to getting you fired could be proof that you've really arrived. NBC News chief White House correspondent David Gregory admits he's clicked on firedavidgregory.com. How could he resist? Presumably he wasn't among the 2,839 visitors who, through Friday, had signed a petition urging his removal. "People have their own political views and they view me through that lens and they go on the attack," Gregory said. "I think that's kind of part of the territory." What put the target...

    WEARE, N.H. - Following a Supreme Court ruling last week that gave local governments power to seize private property, someone has suggested taking over Justice David Souter's New Hampshire farmhouse and turning it into a hotel. "The justification for such an eminent domain action is that our hotel will better serve the public interest as it will bring in economic development and higher tax revenue to Weare," Logan Darrow Clements of California wrote in a letter faxed to town officials in Weare on Tuesday. Souter, a longtime Weare resident, joined in the 5-4 court decision allowing governments to seize private...

But this event’s sponsors reveal the agenda behind banning it. “There is a special place in hell for people like you!” These words were directed at me by a teacher during this past summer’s National Education Association (NEA) convention in Washington, D.C.

His cheery salutation caught me off-guard given the message of tolerance and acceptance I had been hearing around the exhibit hall....

    Dear Diary: While shopping in a department store one evening recently, I noticed two unattended young children — a boy and a girl, about 5 and 7 — hanging around the sales desk. Out of kindness, boredom or to keep the kids out of trouble, the sales associate engaged them in a conversation about all of the pretty things for sale. At this the boy belted out, "I want a bra!" "Boys don't wear bras," the sales associate said. "My uncle does!" came the very loud reply. Robin Corey
