Although the location of the poster says the Hilton, Senator Cruz is expected to be the keynote speaker at the Claremont Institute’s annual Winton Churchill dinner on Saturday night at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.

That Churchill tattoo on his right arm is the perfect touch.

Take that, nagging mom.

UPDATE:
According to our sources, Ted Cruz is actually a twin brother of Chuck Norris

BlogHer invited me to write about the Heritage immigration study:
The Heritage Foundation and IQ: Not a Reflection on the GOP.

IQ is a side issue; the real issue is what policies and laws the government enacts, and we should be cautious when watershed laws are rushed through.

Today’s political broadcast: A real filibuster!

Wednesday, March 6th, 2013

Live on C-SPAN2, Rand Paul filibustering the Brennan nomination. He started at 11:45AM and is on a roll.

As Emily Zanotti Skyles put it,

There’s nothing better than a straight-up for-reals filibuster. I can’t wait until Rand Paul gets to the Betty Crocker cookbook.

He has a ways to go. Right now he’s talking about privacy rights, and there’s plenty to say on that topic.

Ted Cruz joins in,


ACU doesn’t invite Christie to CPAC, gets lots of publicity

Tuesday, February 26th, 2013

ABC, CNN and NBC are shocked, shocked! that NJ governor Chris Chistie was not invited to speak at CPAC this year. There’s even a Memeorandum link by now.

Why the big fuss?

Apparently their hopes of Christie being a front-runner among conservatives have been dashed, since “At least eight potential presidential contenders will be speaking at CPAC”. You’d think that by now, political reporters would have figured out that Republican and conservative are not synonyms.

But let’s not disabuse them of their notions, and encourage them to believe that, if Governor Christie beeeehaves, he’ll be invited to next year’s Oscars.
