What’s Good For The Goose Is Good For The Gander

I agree with Hugh that if Team Obama is going to do a line-by-line refutation of the Jerome Corsi book, they really ought to do a line-by-line response to NRO’s David Freddoso’s The Case Against Barack Obama. (I’ve written a review of Corsi’s, but want to finish Freddoso’s for contrast. I found several mistakes in the Corsi book — i.e., Ben Smith writes for Politico.com, not RedState.com — that are bothersome.)

One of the objections raised by the Huffington Post, arguing that Obama is not “the least experienced politician in at least one hundred years to obtain a major party nomination for President” looks pretty silly.
Having said that, if the election turns on whether or not Obama can convince America that Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn are “members of the establishment”, McCain can feel good about his chances.

He dreamed of socialism but feared socialists. He feared them because he knew them. I was in the sixth grade in 1984, but I ... Read More

The Beatification of Beto

The media’s treatment of Texas Democratic candidate Beto O’Rourke wasn’t the most egregiously unfair coverage of the past year -- that would be the treatment of Brett Kavanaugh -- but it ranks among 2018’s most annoying. The endless glowing profiles of O’Rourke in every publication from Vanity Fair to ... Read More
