Here’s one Democratic scandal you don’t know and the most surprising thing is that the New York Times broke the story. Either there was a lot of arm-twisting or it’s really juice. My vote is on the latter.
I follow Erin Ryan on Twitter and I’m pretty familiar with her sense of humor. I also did a great interview with her before CPAC this year. She saw fit to give a Breitbart contributor and former CPAC Director nearly 2,000 words to talk about the conservative movement on Jezebel. How bad can she be?
It’s not enough to be at the conservative conferences (and I say that as the former director of CPAC). I’m not talking about setting up shop at a Comic-Con with a bunch of [Candidate Name] 2016 buttons and GOP tchotchkes. I’m talking about letting them know we’re willing to engage.
Last year a Salon article titled, “In praise of the ‘beta males,’” made the rounds and we all rolled our eyes. The author wrote:
It was an important moment in 2008 when a black man was elected president of the United States. It’s time to make history in 2016. We must elect the first Generation X president.
The way the media throw around accusations of sexism you’d think it was an epidemic. Perhaps it is because the biggest perpetrators of sexism are the media.
In February I wrote about political punks – who actually have cultural credibility. They appreciate mainstream culture for the power of the parable in furthering a message of liberty.
As I mentioned in a recent article, I was interested in attending Comicon because from the outside I saw some interesting similarities and differences. This piece is about one similarity in particular: how the media portrays Comicon and the Conservative Political Action Conference’s (CPAC) relationship with women.
Over the years I’ve met lots of liberals who say after a few hours of talking with me, “Oh, you’re normal. You’re not like the other conservatives.”
From 2006 to 2011, I was the Director of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC). CPAC is often been described as being like the Mos Eisley Cantina.
As Mad Men begins to wrap-up with only three episodes left in the series, I’ve been watching every episode twice. A few weeks ago a line Peggy Olson said struck me as totally out of sync with today’s times.
Every few months, xoJane, Salon, Thought Catalog or some other site posts an article about how offensive it is for men to hold doors open for women or pay on the first date or any number of normal behaviors. A
Harf! What’s that, girl?
During the midterm elections, conservatives ushered in a new crop of Republican representatives, senators, governors, and state legislators. Most of the winners promised to cut the size and scope of government. While we still have many obstacles on the federal level, there are real examples on the state level of cutting government waste.
A few weeks ago, I wrote about “political punks”–people like Andrew Breitbart, Greg Gutfeld, Clint Eastwood, Ann Coulter, and Gavin McInnis, who buck the cultural left and political right. Of course, there are several people I neglected to list in the column, as many commenters reminded me. (Hi, Sabo fans!)
What do Clint Eastwood, Ann Coulter, Greg Gutfeld and Gavin McInnes have in common?
Rush Limbaugh said on his Monday radio program that Scott Walker is the “blueprint for the Republican party” if they want to beat the Left in 2016.
A few days ago, director and Hollywood darling Judd Apatow went on a Twitter rant against Bill Cosby. The Washington Post wrote, “Apatow’s outspokenness is rare among entertainment industry figures, who have remained largely silent on the allegations that have swirled around Cosby for years but have reached a fever pitch over the last several months.”
Last week I posted a list of books I recommend as gifts for Christmas (or any occasion, really). Another awesome gift is “Davi Sings Sinatra,” a collection of Sinatra favorites sang by the very talented Robert Davi. Many will know
Sony Pictures was recently the victim of a huge computer hack. Many articles have focused on the movies that were published, but Fusion.net finds something the feminist beancounters might be interested in. The salary list is contained in a spreadsheet from the
I like to read books, but I really love to give books. They’re easy to wrap. They’re usually under $20. They can be shared with others. Most importantly, buying them supports people I like. Finding Mr. Righteous by Lisa De
The Daily Signal put up this video of comments from federal workers who are on strike because they want a higher minimum wage. Rep. Hank Johnson (D-GA) says that it isn’t fair for the top 1% to have so much
There was a time when I didn’t believe in God or miracles or anything else related to Christianity. I wrote in my book, Finding Mr. Righteous, about my religious journey and the moments that led to becoming Christian. One of
For the last couple of years we can’t stop hearing about ridiculous sexy costumes. Sexy Pizza. Sexy Ghostbuster. Sexy Mouse. Even Sexy Wednesday Addams. This has prompted a lot of articles from feminists with phrases like “we should be asking
Macaca. Legitimate rape. Forty-seven percent. Remember these phrases? The media said they defined the Republican candidates. There was endless coverage of them. But what happens when a Democrat says that he doesn’t support parental consent before a 14 year-old can
