Gawker seems to think it has a scoop of some kind, trumpeting the fact that the Republicans are meeting in the Burwell Room of the Kingsmill Resort (named for a formed slave plantation) to discuss – ta da! – minority outreach. The irony, the sheer hypocrisy of such a thing is apparently too much for them [...]

These comments by Mitt Romney’s son Tagg have gotten a lot of attention in the last couple of days: In an interview with the Boston Globe examining what went wrong with the Romney campaign, his eldest son Tagg explains that his father had been a reluctant candidate from the start. After failing to win the [...]

Finding enjoyable movie fare for American history geeks typically presents a challenge. The nature of the genre leaves diehard purists perpetually frustrated. Yet even those of us willing to allow some minor transgressions of fact or character to pass too often are disappointed by the shallow Hollywood luster that insults its audience and kicks a [...]

Susie and I went to New England for a couple of weeks this summer. It’s a part of the country I had never really been to before, which meant that I probably tried to cram too much into the two weeks. Hey, you never know when you’re going to be back – maybe never. So [...]

For the most part I enjoy reading Ann Coulter’s columns. True, sometimes she is over the top with her vitriol, but most of the time her targets deserve it. But her column today betrays her. She makes two mistakes immediately – two incorrect assumptions in my view – and comes out with the inevitable wrong conclusion: Romney [...]

On Monday night I enjoyed a presentation by Rick Green on “Understanding the Constitution” using Mike Holler’s workbook, “The Constitution Made Easy.” Rick is affiliated with Wallbuilders, founded by David Barton. I was happy to see about 50 people in attendance, thanks to the efforts of local freedom fighter Michelle Morin. Rick related the story of [...]

George Friedman, writing for Stratfor’s Geopolitical Weekly, puts the humbug into next Tuesday’s doings: Many say that the country has never been as deeply divided. In discussing the debates last week, I noted how this year’s campaign is far from the most bitter and vitriolic. It might therefore be useful also to consider that while [...]

Dan McLaughlin, writing at RedState.com on Monday, brought up a very good point: What if Obama loses the popular vote but wins in the Electoral College? He’ll be an emasculated duck. Barack Obama is trying to do something no president has ever done: get re-elected without winning the national popular vote. If he were to [...]keep looking »

The tentative class schedule is as follows: Saturday, [...]
