“Racist” dissenters. Kneejerk liberalism. The Baucus option. Plus more.

With all due respect, Mr. Cline, you could not be more wrong here. The last thing I plan to do if called a racist is to get into an argument with my accuser about whether or not the charge is valid.
What I would say is what any conservative, in private or public life, should now say:
“The word ‘racism’ has been applied so often to legitimate
differences of opinion that the word has lost its meaning. When
my accuser wants to grow up and discuss the issues, I’ll be happy
to do so.”

The liberals have been demonstrably telling fibs about their
health care plans and now they and their media henchmen lie about
racism. What’s new? Why should they have any credibility about

Re: Philip Klein’s No Deal:
Senator Baucus, having been properly seasoned by his 30 plus years in the Senate, unlike a certain arrogant and inexperienced Chi Town pol, knows how to cook a frog: slowly.
The Democrats have not lost their lust for power. Baucus is simply more patient and less arrogant than President Obama. That the liberal base feels impatient, emboldened and entitled only works against them. The American public might have gone for the health care co-ops early on, but The One looked to swallow the elephant in one bite and the American people were startled into opposition. Once the people became aware of the level of intrusion, the war on health care was once again lost by the Left.
Now that the not so silent majority of Americans have been stirred from their slumber, it is up to the Right (not necessarily the GOP) to come up with some tasty alternatives to the current administrations smorgasbord of government goodies.
Maybe the Left has, once again, cooked its own overstuffed

NOT THE BEST VOTING BLOCK

Congressmen Lynch forgot that “the unborn” don’t have a voice,
and he just (re)learned, they don’t vote either.
Re: Mark Judge’s Lingua Crapa:
Bias and its practitioners’ lack of writing skills, or just being lousy at what they do aren’t the only reasons for the liberal media’s decline.
Maybe they don’t know news gathering and reporting differ from opinion, and that advocacy doesn’t belong in news?
Maybe its practitioners lack creativity?
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
