right-wing blogs we like

Doug Parris runs this red-meat social conservative group site which bars no holds when it comes to saying who they are and who they're not; what they believe and what they don't; who their friends are and where the rest of the Republicans can go. Well-written, and flaming.

Oh goodie, we can look forward to multiple fanboy posts ala Darcy Burner...

I've started to see the Elizabeth Warren bandwagon form on facebook. Just what we need!


338 lapua

She's basically making the case against anarchism, a part of the political spectrum occupied by a tiny handful of people.

In other words, it's the classic straw-man argument. Don't they teach basic logic at Harvard anymore?


The progressive left's idolization of Elizabeth Warren - who has never had a job at even a Cabinet level position - underscores just how little influence and how few advocates progressive politics have in DC. Progressives (as distinct from Democrats) are a long ways from a majority in this country, but they're a significant segment of Americans, and they're badly underrepresented in Washington because of how corrupt our political process is.

Warren can say this sort of thing, which ought to be self-evident, only because she's never had to run for political office, and thus she's never had to go begging for corporate money.


Actually, now she is running for political office - in Massachusetts, which is one of the few states where there's a tradition of progressives running and winning. But as with Obama circa 2004, her reputation far outstrips her actual government resume.


We started The TEA Party to fight against the Republican Party's being taken over by big donors and the party's weak kneed caving in to the democrats at every turn. To guide our party back to the right.
It sounds to me as if you lib/ progressives/ regressives need to do the same thing. Maybe start your very own Robin Hood Party. Steal from the successful to give to the lame, infirm and lazy.

Johnny Sombrerro

And yet the party faithful have done nothing about reforming the so called tea party from the likes of the Koch Bros. The party is your mess chucks, stop blaming others. Also, this claim about the gop 'caving in'. Caving in to what?


Ms. Warren inadvetantly praises the hammer and sickle with her rhetoric which is out of touch - but don't think that she sees it, as she is an academic elitist. Enough of the Koch Bros. red herring - stop blaming the tea party - they are not beholden to the Republican or Democratic Party.

I like her opponent, Scott Brown - a moderate R and a good man(a conservative R would not cut it in Taxachusetts).


I don't make a lot of money but I go to work every day and do an honest day's work. I don't consider myself lame,infirm and lazy because I am not a millionaire.

I suspect Chucks is not a millionaire either but he is an apologist for those who are taxed at 15 percent (or in Boeing's case, -1.8 percent) and call us workers who are paying at a lot higher rate, 'lazy.'

How many jobs have those 'job creators' created lately? I suspect not many because they need workers with living wage jobs to buy their products and trickle the money up to them.

I say, Go, Liz.


Scott Brown is the incumbent Senator who will be up for election in 2012. If you play her message, Ms. Warren is downright scary. Scott Brown seemed like a good campaigner in early 2010, so bring it on tin lizzie...
