My best wishes to all of you, whether you are observing the holiday or not, and I will see you Thursday after sundown. Keith UPDATE: The headline

Paul Ryan, King of the Reagan Babies

I’ve written for Politico a piece that’s running this morning about Paul Ryan titled, “The King of the Reagan Babies.” My point? That Ryan is the best of the young conservative leaders who came of age during Reagan’s presidency and have inherited at least some of their political character from him. From the piece: Obama’s spin doctors are salivating at the chance to dissect Ryan’s

White House Dossier Returns!

I just want to thank all of you for the wonderful comments wishing me a nice vacation. It was really gratifying and very much appreciated. And thanks everyone for waiting while I took a little break. I went to the woods. Actually, with the spotty Internet service, I lost a 500 word article I had written for you. After nearly throwing my computer onto a

Alright, look, my mom is visiting. I need to take the day off, okay? I’m sorry. I will post if something major happens out at Camp David, where the G8 is meeting. For example, if they cut up their credit cards, I will let you know. Have a nice weekend and I’ll be back Monday morning. Keith

The Secret Service I Know

The members of the Secret Service who brought a horde of prostitutes back to their hotel should and will be punished. For those who are guilty, their careers are over. This is unfortunate but necessary. These people do have stressful jobs and are frequently sent away from home, and it’s not surprising they wanted to blow off steam. But the way they did it is

Mitt Would be a Conservative President

I want to let you know about a piece I have running in Politico today, “Mitt Romney Would Govern as a Conservative.” Here’s a taste of it to give you an idea of the argument. Conservatives shouldn’t fret about the politics of their nearly-presumptive nominee. Mitt Romney will most certainly govern as one of them. He’s guaranteed to — for the exact reason they think

“Thank You Sandra Fluke!” Satire for The Daily Caller

Hi everyone. I hope you have a moment to take a look at this satirical piece I did for The Daily Caller titled, “Thank You Sandra Fluke, Because I’ve Gotta Have It.” Here’s an excerpt to whet your appetite: Georgetown law student and part-time reproductive rights activist Sandra Fluke wants her Catholic university to pay for her birth control so she can have as much sex as

Obama’s Birth Control Rule May Destroy Him

I’ve got a piece running in Politico today that I hope you’ll take a look at. Most of the talk has been about how the regulation in the new health law requiring Catholic institutions to cover birth control will hurt Obama with Catholic voters. But the issue is really a shock to all voters, who will begin to recognize the potential of a second Obama
