The Utah and Arizona primaries are on Tuesday and then the entire world turns its eyes to Wisconsin for the April 5th primary. How the delegates are allocated will play a role in determining how many delegates Senator Ted Cruz, Donald Trump and Governor John Kasich will each get. Utah is expected to go for […]

While we’re at it, let’s ban talk like, “Behind enemy lines.” Rep. Van Hollen used MSNBC to claim Palin’s map was dangerous. In fact, the website of the organization he runs has a nearly identical map. Rep. Van Hollen should be asked to explain the differences between the two maps. Specifically, what makes Palin’s map […]

And as Ben Smith at Politico is reporting, Jared Loughner left a bit of a social media trail that may give some insight into his troubled mind. The police have named a suspect in the shooting of Gabriel Giffords, Jared Loughner. A person under that name has a YouTube account that includes suggestions of anti-government political […]

Ann Althouse video recorded the entire “Peace March” through Madison today. It reminded me of the sham gunfights I saw in Tombstone, Arizona, to show off for the tourists. Except the gunfights were more entertaining. I miss the hippy protestors from the 1980s. Remember the Pershing missile debate? Now those were protestors. This bunch looks […]
