An e-mail:  

As a liberal and one who finds the Corner hilarious because it tends to be a discussion between people who are wrong about everything (Santorum for SCOTUS!  Romney for Prez!), I would be remiss if I didn’t recommend Via Emilia on Park Ave S.  It’s Pumpkin Tortellini rather than Ravioli, and I’d like to keep the place to myself, but the opportunity to force you to buy lunch for someone else couldn’t be missed out on.  Keep up the good (bad???) work! Cheers!

I’d like to note for the record that I never pushed Santorum for SCOTUS. Just Senate, of course, SECDEF, and U.N. Ambassador (if the unjustifiable happens to Bolton).

The State of the Race for the House

Pollsters and media organizations are less inclined to conduct surveys of House races, both because there’s less public ... Read More
