DCCC Gets in on the Act

Not content to let Organizing for America politicize Thanksgiving, the DCCC has joined in. I just got this e-mail:

Jonah –

Let’s face it: we all have a crazy Tea Party relative (or two) who just loves bashing President Obama — even on Thanksgiving.

If you’re worried that your Thanksgiving table will start looking like the set of Fox & Friends, we’ve got just the thing for you: the DCCC’s 2013 Thanksgiving Cheat Sheet!

Don’t worry about printing it out — we’ll text it directly to your phone so you’ll always have the facts and stats you need to go up against all the nastiest Republican sound bites:

Enjoy — and have a great Thanksgiving!

I love the defensive tone here. While the Democrats are the ones who want Americans to check their iPhones at the Thanksgiving table for the latest instructions from the Ministry of Information, they’re posing as if someone else is to blame for it.

If it weren’t all so comically lame, it would be disturbing.

Trump and the ‘Racist Tweets’

What does “racist” even mean anymore? Racism is the headline on President Trump’s Sunday tweets -- the media-Democrat complex assiduously describes them as “racist tweets” as if that were a fact rather than a trope. I don’t think they were racist; I think they were abjectly stupid. Like many ... Read More

How Beto Made Himself into White-Privilege Guy

Long before the Left fell headlong into the logical termini of its triune fascination with race, power, and privilege, O’Rourke sensed that there ... Read More
