The Breitbart Election

I regret that I’ve been too busy to blog lately, particularly in this crucial election year.  However, despite my lack of time, I would like to put one point on the record prior to tomorrow’s historic presidential election: Regardless of which candidate wins, this election can be accurately described as “the Breitbart election.”   Simply put, the ideas for which Andrew Breitbart advocated long before his premature death bore fruit [more . . . ]

It's Ryan!  Immediate Impressions

In his recent piece, Charles Krauthammer set out two approaches that Mitt Romney can take in his campaign against the president. Stewardship or ideology.  Krauthammer asserted that Romney would win with an ideology approach.  In a previous post, I wrote that Romney needs to be an architect, not a handy man; he needs to have a vision for the country, not just a pragmatic fix for it. By picking Paul Ryan, Romney [more . . . ]

Just Plain Wrong

In my last post, on June 1, I predicted that the ironically-named Affordable Care Act would be struck down as unconstitutional.  I was just plain wrong.

About Breitbart . . .

Things change.  And they did so dramatically last week, when we lost Andrew Breitbart. I met Andrew only twice. Before I attended law school, I enjoyed a moderately successful career as an actor and writer in Los Angeles.  Andrew and I hung out in, shall we say, the same circle of friends. The first time Andrew and I met was no more than an introduction.  The second time was a [more . . . ]

Republicans and Black History

February is Black History Month.  Toward that end, I’d like to share  Rep. Allen West’s speech on the floor of the House, in which he refreshingly presents . . . history.  I’m also posting a speech excerpt from the great Frederick Douglass. Rep. West covers a lot of ground, discussing many victories on the road from slavery to freedom, the heroes that led, and the political party to which they [more . . . ]
