Over the last few days, I have seen a simple but brilliant piece of analysis, one I think has a great deal of merit. Essentially, it goes like this: If unions exhaust themselves fighting right-to-work legislation and public union reform efforts in Wisconsin, Indiana, and now Arizona, they will have fewer resources to help Obama […]

Posted: January 24, 2012 at 4:25 am   /   Elections, Politics

Political predictions are often hard to make. Even people who are smart, savvy, and informed make them and then turn out to be wrong. We rarely go back and check, but it’s true even of the finest pundits. Similarly, when pundits give advice about what a candidate should or should not do, it’s very hard […]

Start thinking Gingrich?

Posted: January 23, 2012 at 4:47 am   /   Elections, Politics

Yesterday, I called your attention to analysis suggesting that in spite of Gingrich’s rather resounding victory in South Carolina, the race is still Romney’s to lose.

South Carolina results and more

Posted: January 22, 2012 at 4:17 am   /   Elections, Politics, Videos

Gingrich wins, and obviously that changes things a bit. If Romney had pulled out a win in South Carolina, he would have a mystique of inevitability, one that might be strong enough to carry him to wins in Florida and beyond.

Who’s Afraid of the Big Bad Bilderberg?

Posted: January 11, 2012 at 2:00 pm   /   Politics

It seems that whenever I point out that a true conservative is not ever likely to win the presidency in a country that is only slightly right of the middle, I can count on hearing from people who regard RINOs as worse than Obama, worse than Pelosi, Reid and Waxman, and even worse than jihadists.
