  • LA’s Brilliant Plan to Boost Voter Turnout: Bribery

    The Los Angeles Ethics Commission (the term “ethics” is used rather loosely in this case) has a plan to get more voters to turn out on Election Day. Basically, they think the city should bribe people to show up at the polls. According to LA Times:Alarmed that fewer than one-fourth of voters are showing up for municipal elections, the Los Angeles Ethics Commission voted Thursday to recommend that the City Council look at using cash prizes to lure a greater number of people to the polls. On a 3-0 vote, the panel said it wanted City Council President Herb Wesson's Rules,...
  • Democratic Party Loves Ill-Informed Voters

    Former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor is worried. In a recent speech at Boise State, O'Connor said: "Less than one-third of eighth-graders can identify the historical purpose of the Declaration of Independence, and it's right there in the name. ... The more I read and the more I listen, the more apparent it is that our society suffers from an alarming degree of public ignorance." This is good news for the left. The ill-informed are more susceptible to emotional arguments. They are more likely to see life as a zero-sum game. They are more likely to believe that the...
  • Can GOP's Local Success Translate to Federal Level?

    The Republicans are doomed. Conservatism is over. President Obama is conducting a mop-up operation at this point. That's the basic consensus in places like New York City, Washington, D.C., and other citadels of blue America. And let's be fair, liberals have every reason to gloat -- a little. The GOP has its troubles. Long-term demographic trends; often-irrational animosity from Hollywood, the media and academia; a thumbless grasp of the culture on the part of many Republicans: All of these things create a headwind for the party and the broader conservative movement. But here's the weird part. That's all true of...
  • The News Low-Information America Wants to Hear About: Kim Kardashian is Pregnant! (Who cares?)

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: Kim Kardashian is pregnant. Did you see that? Kim Kardashian and Kanye West are gonna have a baby. It's a beautiful thing. Isn't it wonderful? And then there's this story: "Study Suggests Lower Mortality Risk for People Deemed to Be Overweight." That means the heavier you are, up to a point, the less likely you are to die. Thin people are more likely to die than people who are overweight. It doesn't surprise me. I remember when I was a kid, I'd always been a chunky kid. I was always made fun of as a chunky kid....

    BEGIN TRANSCRIPT RUSH: You gotta hear this. Richard Stengel. You thought it was gonna be your story on the castration guy, right? That's coming up. You gotta hear this. Richard Stengel, the TIME Magazine guy, the editor. You know, yesterday he was on Today show, announced Obama as the Person of the Year. He said the reason why they named Obama Person of the of Year is because the no-information voters love the guy. They're transforming America. They actually said this. TIME magazine said it's remarkable he's worth being Person of the Year, 'cause he's the guy that ended up...
  • Why Is the Left So Threated By My Poll?(John Ziegler)

    It has been quite a strange couple of weeks since I decided to commission a Zogby poll of Obama voters. I chose to do this at great personal expense to determine whether interviews I did on Election Day (for a forthcoming documentary I am producing on the media coverage of the election) were indeed representative of the larger population. In a nutshell, here’s what happened next: I suddenly become a favorite target of the Internet’s left-wing attack machine. Zogby was forced to defend the poll and two days later, his organization partially abandoned it. The video of Obama voters trying...

    Candidates for higher office are indeed tested — if they win — from Day One. But the credibility of their declared principles is sometimes tested suddenly and revealingly on the campaign trail. I have often cited the voluble and often humorous Joe Biden as a passionate practitioner, and defender, of free speech. But on Oct. 23 — after participating in at least 200 interviews since chosen as Barack Obama's vice presidential on the Democratic ticket two months ago, Biden — offended at a question by an Orlando WFTV TV reporter-anchor — did not object when the Obama campaign then forbade...
