The Corner

Aw Shucks

Whenever I do blogging heads I get these nice notes from liberals, often saying how “different” I am “in person” then I am in the Corner. It’s nice to hear, though I’m not completely sure what to make of it. Still, it’s nice to hear though I guess I’d like to win hearts and minds for the cause more than for my own popularity with a few liberals. Anyway, here’s one from a viewer (whose analysis I’ll ignore for the sake of comity):

JG-

While I vehemently disagree with you, and am sometimes angered by

your work(ie calling President Carter an America Basher), I must say that

you have officially taken over the conservative-I-can-tolerate-most spot,

recently vacated by George Will.

Your statement about democracy being about disagreement was dead on.

Compromise is essential, to be sure. Without it, even in its worst form,

we could not have started this nation. LBJ knew he had to compromise

in 57 to get the right sh*t done in 64. But compromise does not equal

bipartisanship. And we see that in the last five years, all spirit of

compromise has been thrown out by the ruling party.  In the long

run, I am glad of this. You should not be. Bush’s re-election was

great for America, because now that America sees this current

version of conservatism in full effect, they will reject it for a long

time to come.

Hopefully, people of your ilk, the intelligent, thoughtful, reasonable

conservatives, will take hold of the GOP and be a happy, workable

minority party of the future. 😉

Another Pollster Sees a Trump Win

The Trafalgar Group’s Robert Cahaly is an outlier among pollsters in that he thinks President Trump will carry Michigan, Pennsylvania, or both, and hence be reelected with roughly 280 electoral votes. (I explained his thinking here.) Last week another pollster, Jim Lee of Susquehanna Polling and Research, ... Read More

Daylight Savings Forever

Before I became a parent, I didn't have especially strong feelings about the time shifting by an hour twice a year. Like most people I was aware of the downsides -- increased car accidents, schedule confusion, etc. -- and I figured it would be better to knock it off. But I didn't feel personally offended by ...
