Sen. Graham Praises Cruz: ‘We Have a Lot in Common’

In his most resounding praise of the Sen. Ted Cruz to date, Sen. Lindsey Graham said this morning “I can work with Ted Cruz” as president.

“I know what I’m getting with Ted Cruz,” Graham told Meet the Press. “He would repeal ObamaCare and replace it with something better. He’s not going to order our troops to commit war crimes. He would defund Planned Parenthood.”

“We have a lot in common; tactically I disagree with Ted about shutting down the government to repeal ObamaCare – I thought it was a bad idea – but yeah, if I can work with Ted Cruz, I think that shows there is hope,” Graham said.

The New York Times’ David Brooks challenged Graham to cite any Cruz accomplishments in the Senate. Graham said Cruz created a lot of anger among conservatives toward himself and Sen. McConnell, but “he’s a Republican conservative, and Donald Trump is not.”

Pro-Abortion Nonsense from John Irving

The novelist has put up a lot of easy targets in his New York Times op-ed. I am going to take aim at six of his points, starting with his strongest one. First: Irving asserts that abortion was legal in our country from Puritan times until the 1840s, at least before “quickening.” That’s an overstatement. ... Read More

Murder Mystery: An Old Comedy Genre Gets Polished Up

I  like Adam Sandler, and yet you may share the sense of trepidation I get when I see that another of his movies is out. He made some very funny manboy comedies (Billy Madison, Happy Gilmore, The Waterboy) followed by some not-so-funny manboy comedies, and when he went dark, in Reign over Me and Funny People, ...
