THE BEN CARSON CANDIDACY

There are currently reports circulating around the internet that Dr. Benjamin “Ben” Carson is going to announce he will seek the Republican nomination for President. Mr. Carson is considered a brilliant neurosurgeon.  If I had a neurological disorder (not the kind my wife occasionally accuses me of having when I forget something she asked me to do, but a real one)...

FROM THOSE NICE FOLKS WHO WANT THE POLICE TO ABIDE BY THEIR “RULES OF ENGAGEMENT”

This is straight from the “Justice For Mike Brown” facebook page – and needs no explanation from me: That is what they did to one of their own fellow protesters, who had the temerity to try and show the world what the protesters were all about. And, yes, these are the same protesters who demand that the police tell them everything they\’re going to do 48 hours ahead of...

ANATOMY OF AN INCORRECT ELECTION ANALYSIS

It is truly amazing what assumptions about race do to basic logic. Case in point:  The Associated Press has published an analysis of the midterm election by Jennifer Agiesta, which is headlined: “Exitpolls: White voters turn away from Democrats”. That\’s pretty plain, isn\’t it?  But just in case it isn\’t, here are a couple of key paragraphs...

GRIDLOCK AND THE 2016 ELECTION

Having read article after article assuring me that, if there is gridlock between congress and the presidency for the next two years, it will either hurt Republicans rather than Democrats, or both parties equally… …I think I\’ll put this one to rest. First off, who is saying this, other than Democrat partisans in the media (not what you\’d call hard to find) –...

ARE DEMOCRATS CONCEDING THE LOUISIANA SENATE RUNOFF?

Remarkable news from Louisiana:  the Democratic Senate Campaign Committee has canceled a bunch of ads for Mary Landrieu\’s December 6th runoff election against Republican challenger Bill Cassidy. What does this mean? Well, it could mean that, Ms. Landrieu, being a proven vote-getter in other elections, is thought of as so strong that she will win without the need for...

THE FERGUSON “RULES OF ENGAGEMENT”

This gives effrontery a bad name The “Don\’t Shoot” coalition, which purports to represent something like 50 different protest groups which have operated in Ferguson, Missouri for the past three months, has issued a series demands relating to the upcoming decision on whether to charge police officer Darren Wilson with a crime for shooting and killing Michael...

OSAMA BIN LADEN\’S DEATH: I\’M CONFUSED

According to an article in today\’s Washington Post, former navy SEAL Robert O\’Neill fired the shot that killed osama bin laden. But I\’m confused.  I thought President Obama killed osama bin laden.  He\’s said so 1,000 times, hasn\’t he? Oh, wait.  Now I remember.  President Obama, safely ensconced in Washington D.C. when the SEALS got in...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Today\’s quote – and it stands as an object lesson for Democrats who are serious about learning from yesterday\’s massacre – comes to us from Condoleezza Rice.  Speaking on Fox and Friends this morning, she had this to say about the kinds of racial appeals Democrats used during the campaign.  Said Ms. Rice: “The idea that you would play such a card and...

FINALLY A REAL TEA-BAGGER , FROM FOOT TO HEAD

You cannot make this stuff up. From an article posted at Fox News, in Winston-Salem North Carolina: Thechairwoman of the Stokes County Democratic Party told King policethat the man she is accusedof assaulting Tuesday had argued with her and called her aprofane name and a liar before she kicked him in the groin and threwherbal tea on him, according to the...

#HILLARYSLOSERS

For a variety of reasons (which I\’ll happily blog about at a later date), Rand Paul is far from my favorite guy.  Very, very far. But I have to admit that he was funny, in a snarky sort of way, by putting up a half-dozen pictures of Hillary Clinton campaigning with Democrat candidates during the midterm election, all of whom lost, using the...

THE TODAY SHOW: STILL COVERING FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA

This morning, I watched the Today Show\’s report on President Obama\’s news conference – which he, narcissistically (therefore, typically), decided to hold on the day after Republicans\’ epic electoral success, so the spotlight would be on him, not them. After acknowledging that there was “a Republican route in the midterm elections”, Matt...

THE QUOTE OF THE DAY

Ken  Berwitz Today\’s quote – actually it was made on October 26th – comes to us from that noted Swami, Senator Chuck Schumer. Here is what he told a no-doubt appreciative Chuck Todd on that morning\’s Meet The Press show: “Well,I think we will hold the Senate. You know, I know all the pundits aresaying Republicans will take the Senate. Democrats are going to...

FLUKE NUKED

As an interesting, if not particularly important, part of yesterday\’s election story concerns Sandra Fluke, who decided to parlay her one-issue existence into a seat in the California State Senate.  She ran against fellow Democrat Ben Allen (in California, the top two primary vote-getters run, regardless of party)…and lost in a landslide, 61% – 39%, Ironically, Wendy...
