I am absolutely convinced that people like Behar and Ensler are the produce of some Roswell era hanky-panky between space aliens and farm animals. I'm not kidding. Nothing else makes sense.

Grouchy Old CrippleJeezus, man, learn to spell it first!

 The Boston Globe calls it's round-up of political toon's the "The Ink Tank."  They came so very, very close to getting it right (Inkhorn) Most of us here prefer pookie.

The Reagan model for restoration

 Ronald Reagan was, and remains,
the North Star of the last great
conservative revolution -- and the next

What a great picture

In 1977, Reagan outlined a plan for "The New Republican Party," stating, "The principles of conservatism are sound because they are based on what men and women have discovered through experience in not just one generation or a dozen, but in all the combined experience of mankind. When we conservatives say that we know something about political affairs, and what we know can be stated as principles, we are saying that the principles we hold dear are those that have been found, through experience, to be ultimately beneficial for individuals, for families, for communities and for nations -- found through the often bitter testing of pain, or sacrifice and sorrow."
At 1310 words, this essay by Mark Penn [The Reagan model for restoration]  covers a lot of ground.  For one thing, it touches on the Left's go-to complaint about Reagan (after "he was stupid"), e.g. - "he increased the deficit!" 

Over the years many neo conservatives have ceded that point, for the same reason, I suppose, that many of them are today hostile to questioning Obama's contradictory birth circumstances; -  it's"unproductive."   But here's the point, as I see it.  Reagan's core principles, and his staunch observance of them, is the stuff of success.

And what were those principles?

Pelosi: Democrats Will “Definitely” Retain Majority
Steny H. Hoyer (D-Md.)said he would consider Democrats successful if they simply managed to outnumber Republicans after the elections.
[Like Joe Namath's, Pelosi's abilities are pretty much a media creation. At least Joe Willie was likable.]

MKH is calling him the Dane Cook of politics for ripping off a goof that’s already been done three times by national figures, including Palin herself, but it’s worse than that.

Thomas Sowell : The Fallacy of "Fairness": Part II
Because this is ultra-liberal Berkeley, perhaps we should not be surprised that a proposal has been made to eliminate four jobs as science teachers and use the money saved for programs to help low achievers.

Anti-Tea Party Web Site Part of Scheme to Funnel Funds
A seemingly grassroots organization that's mounted an online campaign to counter the tea party movement is actually the front end of an elaborate scheme that funnels funds -- including sizable labor union contributions -- through the offices of a prominent Democratic party lawyer.

The nuking of Dan Coats
In the week since Dan Coats announced he was preparing to challenge Democratic Sen. Evan Bayh, Democrats have launched a withering, no-holds-barred assault on the former Republican senator .... forbeing soft on Osama Bin Laden.
