    "I've resisted the idea that Donald Trump could and would become the Republican nominee," writes GOP strategist Alex Castellanos in an email assessment of the presidential race. "Unhappily, I've changed my mind." Castellanos, who once said flatly that "Trump is not going to be the nominee," writes "the odds of Trump's success have increased and been validated in the past few weeks."

  • Are media buying into ‘phony scandal’ claim?

    Fox News.com ^ | July 27, 2013
    Conservative leaders allege the media are trying to ignore the once high-profile scandals overshadowing the Obama administration, as President Obama and his aides aggressively push the claim that these controversies are "phony." The "phony scandal" line was the unofficial talking point of the week in Washington. White House Press Secretary Jay Carney made it his fallback retort from the podium -- when asked about the president's new wave of speeches on the economy, Carney explained Obama was trying to refocus Washington away from "fake" controversies. For three speeches in a row, Obama hammered this refrain: "With this endless parade of...

    The American Thinker ^ | September 24, 2012 | Jack Cashill
    The other day I received my weekly missive from WallStreetJournal columnist and former Reagan speechwriter Peggy Noonan,in which she informed me and the world that "the Romney campaign has to get turned around." She added helpfully,"This week I called it incompetent,but only because I was being polite. I really meant 'rolling calamity.'" The media loved this column and repeated it widely. Their goal is to depress the Republican vote. Noonan's goal,apparently,is to get attention. Noonan got a lot of it in October 2008, when she wrote the following giddy nonsense about Barack Obama: He has within him the possibility to...

    David Byrne is suing the governor of Florida, alleging that he used the Talking Heads' 1985 single "Road to Nowhere" without permission or proper licenses. Byrne is seeking $1 million in damages from Gov. Charlie Crist, who's also Florida's former Attorney General, and his senatorial campaign for use of the song earlier this year in a website and YouTube ad attacking his then-Republican primary opponent, Marco Rubio. Crist has since changed his campaign and is running as an independent candidate. The suit (Case Number 8:10-CV1187-T26 (MAP)) was filed early Monday afternoon in the United States District Court for the Middle...

  • VANITY: Please help me find a CPAC youtube video.

    Around the time of CPAC or the comment Rush Limbaugh made about wanting Obama to fail, a youtube video was posted. It was a congressman or senator guest appearing on Fox News or CNN (???). He was dark haired, slim, good looking and really funny. I think he was also a rock and roll musician like Huckabee and Tony Snow. During the session, he defined the Republican party in these terms. Our liberty is from God not the Government. Our sovereignty is in our souls not the soil. Our security is through strength not surrender. Our prosperity is from the...

    Flagged For Removal ^ | October 2, 2008 | Meg Kelso
    Bill O'Reilly has a feature called "Pinhead or Patriot?" on his evening talking head hour. He examines recent actions of people, usually celebrities, and based on those actions, he brands them "Pinhead" or "Patriot". Sometimes I agree with him and sometimes I don't. Sometimes his choices for "Patriot" seem almost condescending, like the recent knighting of Lady Elizabeth Taylor for rolling out on a stage. Yeah, I know...that comment made me a pinhead, but it's true nonetheless. I really doubt that the woman I saw did a whole lot in the way of licking envelopes. Lately I've been disagreeing more...

    We saw one example early on. The "deer in the headlights" look spokespeople for the McCain camp would get when "troopergate" was discussed. They had no quick answer.... Let me correct that, early on they had no answer at all. The media and the left framed it nicely as a "messy custody battle" and "Palin tried to get her sisters ex fired-its abuse of power". If James Carville was a republican, you can be sure the tasering of a child and the death threat against Palins father would be tossed out every time the matter was discussed. I can imagine...

    Rocker David Byrne has accused US President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney for leading the country the same way the late Saddam Hussein led Iraq. Byrne is stunned at the Iraq war and is vehemently against it, said contactmusic.com. He said: 'It's like we are in shock. At least I am. The majority of Americans don't want to commit more troops, Congress doesn't want to commit more troops, but George and Dick do and by god they are gonna have it. And I thought, 'Can they just do this?' I thought only people like Saddam Hussein could...

Below is a rundown of the specific predictions issued by columnist Pat Buchanan, Newsweek writer Eleanor Clift, Washington Times editorial page Editor Tony Blankley, Democratic political veteran and television producer Lawrence O'Donnell, John McLaughlin, Weekly Standard Executive Editor Fred...

    In a remarkable moment of candor, Pennsylvania Gov. Ed Rendell today acknowledged that stronger gun laws could not have prevented the horrible shooting at the Amish school in Lancaster County. Rendell, a staunch gun control advocate, admitted, “I believe with all my heart that we need more gun control” during a live press conference. But he also acknowledged that tougher gun laws would not have prevented gunman Charles Carl Roberts IV from carrying out his deadly attack, noting, “You can make all the changes you want, but you can never stop a random act of violence by someone intent on...

    COUNTERTERRORISM has become a source of continuing domestic and international political controversy. Much of it, like the role of the Iraq war in inspiring new terrorists, deserves analysis and debate. Increasingly, however, many of the political issues surrounding counterterrorism are formulaic, knee-jerk, disingenuous and purely partisan. The current debate about United States monitoring of transfers over the Swift international financial system strikes us as a case of over-reaction by both the Bush administration and its critics.
