The Heathen Republican considers all the arguments and comes out against gay marriage, partly because of tradition and partly because of the anticipated horrible tactics that for sure will be launched by leftists like ... well ... me.
Our T. Paine writes his own, often brilliant, conservative blog, Saving Common Sense, at which he is horrified by America's lack of knowledge about history. My guess is a few don't even know much about Paul Revere.
Slant Right's John Houk is outraged at the suspension of a police captain for two weeks, because his religious beliefs keep him from showing respect toward law abiding Muslims at a law enforcement appreciation day sponsored by a local mosque. Houk refers to the police supporting citizens as the "radical Muslim Islamic Society of Tulsa." Radical supporters of local police? Well, see, the supporters of the police are Muslims so they must also. um. be. um. terrorists. Right?
The late William F. Buckley, founder of the one-time ascendent intellectual right, once laughingly criticized some of the teachers of his youth, quoting George Tyrell. "The Jesuits score off the exaggeration of their critics. Accuse them of killing three men and a dog, they will triumphantly produce the dog alive." Tommy Christopher of Mediaite fame continues his fawning coverage of smear artist Andrew Breitbart, featuring wretched treatment by a single reporter who heckled him as he, Breitbart, crashed the recent netroots conference without paying the entrance fee.
The video Tommy displays is thoughtfully provided by the camera crew accompanying Breitbart. Presumably, the video, being of Breitbart himself, is not creatively edited, but how horribly rude of the reporter. I like Tommy. He has been personally gracious to me and to this site. But wow, Tommy. Andrew Breitbart?
Nancy Hanks at The Hankster takes on the weird defenders of the Electoral College. Nancy is impatient with those who oppose fair elections, including cronies of Tommy Christopher's pal Andrew Breitbart. She must be some kind of radical. Tommy! Andrew Breitbart?
Jack Jodell, friend of the working blogger at THE SATURDAY AFTERNOON POST, doesn't seem to think that things go better with Koch. He chronicles the low points of the brothers Koch. May not rise to the scandal level of reporters who are rude to Tommy's friend Andrew Breitbart, but these guys are not exactly harmless. Oh Tommy! Where did your mother and I go wrong?
Manifesto Joe of Texas Blues takes note of the famed Republican sense of hilarity. Seems an Obama impersonator was hired to make a few racially tinged jokes at a GOP gathering. Hee-hee. HEY, can't those black folks take a little harmless ribbing? But then the dirty rotten so-and-so started to make fun of Republicans! Joe guides us to the rest of the story.
Chuck Thinks Right writes about the deserving poor. Poor because they all deserve it. Not much research involved. Chuck doesn't need research when he knows what is in his gut. A good summary of contemporary conservative thought. A fair representation of truthiness. Kind of undoes the good effort put forth by more diligent folk. Happy Anniversary, James!!
Our favorite spiritual leader at Why do we have to do this, Sir? reveals some of his differences with Church leadership. He apologizes for self-indulgence. His readers will disagree with the apology, and embrace the difference with authority.
- What the heck was Tommy Christopher thinking? See THIS.
