Powerline promotes amnesty, even as it realizes Democrats will always undercut the GOP (Paul Mirengoff) - 11/10/12

Paul Mirengoff of Powerline supports comprehensive immigration reform ("amnesty"), even as even he realizes that no matter how weak the GOP gets on immigration the Democratic Party will always be able to underbid them. From peekURL.com/zLkhPwe (bolding added): ...The approach Krauthammer recommends would entail full legal normalization, just short of citizenship, in return for full border...

After Romney defeat, John Hinderaker smears and turns his back on tens of millions of Americans (Powerline) - 11/07/12

... clueless, over to John Hinderaker of Powerline and "The Meaning of Yesterday's Defeat" (link): Decades ago my father, the least cynical of men, quoted a political scientist who wrote that democracy will survive until people figure out that they can vote themselves money. That appears to be the point at which we have arrived. Put bluntly, the takers outnumber the makers. The polls in this...

"Mitt Romney, anti-gay bully" or "How Obama will be reelected" - 05/10/12

Earlier today, the Washington Post published allegations that Mitt Romney was a bully back in prep school (link). I didn't read the story, but that's not what this post is about. Instead, this is a meta post: the WaPo's story is yet another example of how the establishment media is going to help Barack Obama be reelected. The media will publish or broadcast story after story just like the current...

Rightwing's muted response to Brown signing unpopular, anti-American immigration law - 10/09/11

... breitbart.com (checked: front pages) * Powerline * Dan Riehl's site (note: he did tweet the news about the signing however) * Human Events (checked: front page) * Gateway Pundit * Ace Mu Nu If that changes I'll provide an update. If you want it to change and you want conservative activists to cover important issues, let them know what you think. UPDATE: I corrected a typo: "at the expense of...

Challenge for liberals: show how Powerline Prize winner is wrong - 08/01/11

Powerline just awarded $100,000 to the video below for winning their Powerline Prize. That alone is an argument against fiscal conservatives, but it's not enough. Now, I could easily show how the video ("The Spending is Nuts") is wrong, delusional, and expresses sentiments that at the least are unhealthy if not un-American. Instead, I want my liberal-leaning visitors to do it, and I want them to...

Power Line Prize 3rd place winner: satire or just delusional Tea Party fantasy? - 07/28/11

... competition (see that link), Powerline will be redistributing $100,000 (possibly of other people's money) to the person who can best illustrate the so-called "debt crisis". Yesterday they announced that the video "Dawn of the Debt " was one of two third-place winners. The video is embedded below if you want a good laugh. At least, I know I was having trouble typing out the dialog I was laughing...

Delusional John Hinderaker thinks only left engages in "personal intimidation" - 05/12/11

John Hinderaker of Powerline offers "The Politics of Personal Intimidation" [1] in which he's yet again delusional: A disturbing new element has crept into our political life: organized efforts to intimidate private citizens who choose to support certain political causes or otherwise participate in civic affairs... [examples of leftists swarming houses of their opponents and much more deleted...

Power Line Prize: some warnings ($100,000 Powerline Blog contest) - 05/09/11

Powerline Blog and the Minnesota-based Freedom Club are running a contest called the "Power Line Prize". The person who submits a video, song, or similar that best illustrates what they call the "debt crisis" will win a whopping $100,000 (powerlineprize.com, link). Here are some cautionary notes about the contest: 1. Engaging in the contest could mean ignoring other issues which are far more...

John Hinderaker presents: "David Koch, Friend to Mankind" (formaldehyde, ineffectiveness) - 03/05/11

... name is John Hinderaker from Powerline. You might remember me from such filmstrips as "Asbestos: America's Ever-Vigilant Fireman" and "Ladybugs: America's Least-Recognized Pest". Well, today I'm here to present "A Philanthropist Advances the Cause of Science, the New York Times Doesn't" (link) about David Koch of the Koch family. But, first I want to tell you about a wonderful substance called...

What Koch defenders aren't telling you (Reddit, Reason, Glenn Reynolds, Powerline, Weigel) - 02/24/11

... Gillespie: pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/115651 5. John Hinderaker of Powerline hasn't linked to the Reddit piece yet (there's still time). However, he offers several pro-Koch posts in his stock pompous-but-empty style: powerlineblog.com/archives/2011/02/028449.php powerlineblog.com/archives/2011/02/028450.php powerlineblog.com/archives/2011/02/028459.php A day doesn't go by--hardly an hour goes...

Delusional John Hinderaker on the "Tea Party Majority" (Powerline) - 09/07/10

... parties, but John Hinderaker of Powerline is apparently trying to give them a run for their money. In the Glenn Reynolds-linked [1] post "Tea Party Majority" [2] he says the following about the image below: One could draw many conclusions from this, but I would suggest two. First, far from being a fringe phenomenon, the Tea Party movement represents the solid core of mainstream American opinion...

Obama administration apologizes about Arizona immigration law... to China (Jon Huntsman, Michael Posner) - 05/16/10

... that I link to or agree with Powerline blog, but there you go: link. A couple of days ago, Michael Posner of the State Department was asked the following question at a press conference about human rights talks that State is holding with China: QUESTION: Did the recently passed Arizona immigration law come up? And, if so, did they bring it up or did you bring it up? ASSISTANT SECRETARY POSNER: We...

What Evan Coyne Maloney won't tell you: the tea parties are far worse than the anti-Iraq war protests - 03/31/10

... protests. And, all this is linked by Powerline (powerlineblog.com/archives/2010/03/025964.php) and by, of course, Glenn Reynolds (pajamasmedia.com/instapundit/96788). And, all of this is basically a mistake: 1. The loopy signs about Bush from the peace protesters are the exact mirror image of the loopy signs about Obama carried proudly at tea party protests; those listed above might want to back...

Huffington Post, AP mislead about Sarah Palin book; opponents not effective (pipeline deal) - 11/18/09

... Steyn at National Review [3] and Powerline [4] discussed how the AP used eleven writers on the "fact check" and mentioned Garance Burke (linked above) as one of those involved, neither of them made the AP writers themselves the story, and both of their posts will have little long-term effect; both are more or less simply lightweight entertainment. The AP's recent "fact check" would probably be...

WaPo corrects Darryl Fears, Carol Leonnig race card smear of ACORN sting videomakers - 09/22/09

... most likely brought about by Powerline! (exclamation added for extra emphasis) which called out those reporters by name (powerlineblog.com/archives/2009/09/024567.php). While it's easy - and fun! - to laugh at Powerline for being extremely doctrinaire GOP hacks who write one-hour-old-stubble-scratching articles and who don't approve comments showing how they're wrong, in this case they seem to...

John Hinderaker warns against "Birthers", after admitting (and showing) he knows little about the issue - 07/30/09

John Hinderaker of "PowerLineBlog!" (I add the exclamation mark for emphasis) offers "Forms of Madness" (powerlineblog.com/archives/2009/07/024151.php). Let me try to remove some of his filler: [A talk radio show wanted me to discuss the "birthers" and whether they should give it up...] I do think they should give it up, but I haven't studied the issue closely and won't debate anything I haven't...

What the "Northern Alliance" won't ask Michael Barone - 08/11/06

... (featuring the hopeless BushBots at PowerLine and their friends) will be interviewing TV pundit Michael Barone tomorrow at 1pm Eastern. The topic of discussion will be the repurposed edition of his book The New Americans ("How the melting pot can work again"). Apparently it's on a real radio station (not shortwave!) that can be streamed over the web. I am going on record as stating that this...

Immigration questions George F. Will won't answer - 06/19/06
