I love the Atlanta Braves. I’ve been following them as a Georgia native since they virtually paid us to go to games. Back before Chief Knock-A-Homer retired to politically correct servitude…when we would fire off a cannon every time we hit one out of Atlanta Fulton County Stadium. I contracted Braves fever in 1991 when [...]
With just 11 months remaining in his current term, President Obama
announced drastic cuts in the U.S. military, including proposed
significant reductions in the U.S. nuclear arsenal. The announcement
comes as Iran proclaims, publicly and defiantly, that it is much closer
to its own production of nuclear fuel; and as Russia continues its
steady march to return as an equal [...]
Indeed, in Nevada, Gingrich proved that when deployed, his ground operations could outperform the Paul army. Second, that while in the next two major races Romney’s ability to outspend by 5 to 1 in attack ads and drive down turnout will have real impact in Arizona and his other home state of Michigan , the [...]

Mitt Romney’s conservative credentials have been questioned on more than one occasion, probably best exemplified last fall when Rush Limbaugh decreed that the former Massachusetts governor was “not a conservative” because of that state’s “Romneycare” program and his apparent acceptance of the anthropogenic global warming thesis. But the most troubling Romney shortcoming in this regard [...]

In the rush to say something, anything, after a big electoral event like Florida yesterday things can get said that are revealing. On the smart side of things Robert Costa wondered if Gingrich is now a wounded animal, often more dangerous than a healthy one:

The race for the 2012 GOP nomination has been properly characterized as one between two candidates: Mitt Romney and Nott Romney. Some describe it as a rift between the party establishment favoring Romney and the party base looking for someone else.

After months of predictions of a boring race and polls showing Mitt Romney leading, the final race was confusing — and uncalled — down to the wire. The muddled result has a series of effects going forward.
