    4h By <a href="/users/erick/">Erick Erickson</a> (<a href="/diary/erick/">Diary</a>)
    Your taxpayer dollars are being used to subsidize an organization that extracts children, weeks from birth and capable of feeling pain and hearing, from their mothers' wombs. The organization inserts instruments into the soft part of the child's skull, rips it…

  • Tech at Night: Corrupt Democrat supports corrupt radio bill

    2:00am By <a href="/users/neil_stevens/">Neil Stevens</a> (<a href="/diary/neil_stevens/">Diary</a>)
    So the Local Radio Fairness Act is purely an act of picking winners and losers, a corrupt means of trying to curry favor with local media stations, come re-election time. I normally hate arguments like that but look, what legitimate reason is there to hand out…

  • Kevin McCarthy: not as bad as we’d thought

    Wed 4:00pm By <a href="/users/streiff/">streiff</a> (<a href="/diary/streiff/">Diary</a>)
    I posted earlier today on the reluctance of the GOP to stand for much of anything other than perpetuating itself. Every once in a while there is a spark of hope in the darkness that keeps we base voters plodding forward. When one of those happens, it is only…

  • Hillary Clinton agrees Planned Parenthood should be investigated

    Wed 1:00pm By <a href="/users/streiff/">streiff</a> (<a href="/diary/streiff/">Diary</a>)
    Color me gobsmacked. It is a sign of just how damaging the videos of Planned Parenthood have been that Hillary Clinton, the recipient of the 2009 Genocide of Untermenschen Margaret Sanger Award, has tepidly agreed that an investigation is in order. Calling…

    Wed 12:00pm By <a href="/users/leon_h_wolf/">Leon H. Wolf</a> (<a href="/diary/leon_h_wolf/">Diary</a>)
    Anyone who has known me for longer than about 30 minutes knows that I am a Boston Red Sox fan. After the collapse in the 1986 World Series, that experience was, for about 15 years, an unmitigated experience of misery and the addition of reasons for Red Sox…

    Wed 11:00am By <a href="/users/streiff/">streiff</a> (<a href="/diary/streiff/">Diary</a>)
    A couple of days ago, Ben Domenech, writing in The Transom, asked a question that many of us have been asking (at least) since the first of the year: Why does the Republican Party exist? What is its purpose as a political entity – to what end do its members…

  • Mitch McConnell’s Yips

    Wed 10:04am By <a href="/users/erick/">Erick Erickson</a> (<a href="/diary/erick/">Diary</a>)
    Y'all need to read this. What you’re hearing all around Capitol Hill over the past few days is the murmur of staffers saying nervously what their bosses can’t: [mc_name name='Sen. Mitch McConnell (R-KY)' chamber='senate' mcid='M000355' ] has the yips. Say…

    "Deny everything. Admit nothing. Blame others. Make counter-accusations." That, in a nutshell, is the Planned Parenthood strategy for surviving the revelations that far from being a non-profit they are a rapacious and conscienceless entity that would have…
