  • A brilliantly simple campaign ad idea for the GOP from Erick Erickson:
RedState | Erick Erickson | The Ad Campaign
  • One of the scariest RedState headlines ever, and some interesting discussion in the comments section:
RedState | "If Al Gore had won..."
  • Great commentary by David Limbaugh on our Teleprompter-Reader-in-Chief:
David Limbaugh | The Time for Empty Talk is Over 
As President Obama's presidential term has unfolded, he has made it increasingly clear what he meant all those times he haughtily said, "I won." It's his world, and he has no intention of sharing control over it. 
This was on stark display when he attempted to pre-empt the Republican debate with a grandiose joint session of Congress called solely for the purpose of delivering another round of economic propaganda. 
He would have us believe that his speech will be of monumental import, but everyone knows, Democrats included, that it will be nothing more and nothing less than a sales job. There will be nothing new in this speech, no new ideas, no new information.
There is never anything new in any of his speeches, including the 50-plus orations he delivered on Obamacare, but he nevertheless keeps going back to the well. He has degenerated into a habitual pattern of presenting an idea and, after the public rejects it, making further speeches to convince us that we are the ones who are wrong. With each new speech, no matter the subject, he ends up with fewer supporters of the proposition in question, yet he remains oblivious to the diminishing returns he is achieving.
  • Tweet from Conan O'Brien, with an excellent lesson for his kids:

  • Here's an interesting article about Steve MacNamara, Governor Rick Scott's new chief of staff. Whether the changes spearheaded by MacNamara will have lasting impact remains to be seen, but Scott has seemed more accessible and friendly with the press lately, and I welcome the change. Every time I've ever spoken with the Governor, he has been extremely polite and has an easy-going, low key personality. It has always boggled my mind how he is demonized by certain people on the Left and in the media.

  • Yet another Obama administration scandal: the President's uncle arrested for drunk driving, and it turns out he is here illegally. Michelle Malkin has the latest, and a sharp discussion about our immigration policies:
