Blogburst for Fred

Right Wing Nut House is organizing another bogburst for Fred Thompson. So click below to give Fred money.

Reasons a Thompson victory in South Carolina is realistic:

1. Romney has dropped out of the running in SC, having pulled his ads and is transferring staff in order to ambush John McCain in Michigan.

2. That leaves only three candidates with a realistic shot at winning in SC; Huckabee, McCain, and Thompson. Amazingly, none of the three candidates will have an overwhelming advantage when it comes to financing. This levels the playing field considerably.

3. SC voters have made it clear that opposition to illegal immigration is one of the top issues in the state. Looking at the three candidates above, who do you think has the most consistent, conservative record on immigration?

4. Outside factors may play a role in the dynamics of the race. McCain may very well be grievously wounded by a Romney win in Michigan – a state he won in 2000. There would be little time for McCain to right himself following a loss there what with the SC primary 4 days later.

Searching for “Paul Smith”

I’ve been getting emails from Reunion.com letting me know that someone ages 28-38 has searched for the name “Paul Smith.”

Imagine that! There can’t be any other Paul Smith’s out there, so they must be searching for me!

I’d imagine virtually everyone in this country knows someone named Paul Smith. The emails got so annoying I finally cancelled my account on the site, which I don’t even remember signing up for to begin with.

Human Events Endorses Fred Thompson

HUMAN EVENTS Endorses Fred Thompson – HUMAN EVENTS

We make this endorsement on the basis of much research, having interviewed Sen. Thompson and some of his opponents, as well as examining what they have all said and done. We conclude that Thompson is a solid conservative whose judgment is grounded in our principles.

In his Senate years, Mr. Thompson compiled an American Conservative Union lifetime rating of 86.1, which is higher than both Sen. John McCain (82.3) and Rep. Ron Paul (82.3). The Club for Growth has praised Thompson as someone who has a strong commitment to limited government, free enterprise and federalist principles.

On the issues that matter most to conservatives, Sen. Thompson’s positions benefit from their clarity. He is solidly pro-life. He said that he was in favor overturning Roe v. Wade because it was “bad law and bad medical science.” As the National Right to Life Committee said in its endorsement of him Nov. 13, 2007, “The majority of this country is opposed to the vast majority of abortions, and Fred Thompson has shown in his consistent pro-life voting record in the U.S. Senate that he is part of the pro-life majority.”

Thompson’s record is solid on voting to preserve gun owners’ rights, cut taxes, reduce government spending and drill for oil in Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge. He has voted consistently against gay marriage. Thompson is by no means perfect. He strongly supported the McCain-Feingold bill, did not support the impeachment of Bill Clinton on perjury and more than once voted with the trial lawyers against limitations on liability in defective product and medical malpractice cases.

We like the way Thompson unhesitatingly attacks the liberal ideologues and their activists such as MoveOn.org and the ACLU, and the way he reaches out to those we knew as the Reagan Democrats.

The closer conservatives look at the primary campaign, the more they realize there is only one conservative in the race: Fred Thompson.

Obama a radical on abortion

ABC News, "The abortion vote the GOP is planning to use to bring down Obama" :: Infanticide :: ProLifeBlogs

…. Republican operatives have been examining Obama’s record in Springfield, Illinois, and think they have caught Obama voting the wrong side of an abortion bill that will turn off the public “like partial birth abortion cubed,” in the words of one GOP operative.

The bill would have required medical care for babies born during unsuccessful abortions – an issue no Democrat trying to win over independents and Republicans would want to spend any time discussing.

Those who call themselves “pro-choice” often say that they believe abortion should be allowed because the “fetus” is merely a “leech” living off the mother’s body. But here we have a case where a child is born, and Obama believes the child should be left uncared for until they die. And given his willingness to allow genocide, we have to wonder if Obama values human life at all.

The phrase of the year: “No woman is illegal”

The Anchoress goes off“:

I liked “Don’t Taze Me Bro,” for 2007.

But 2008 is the year that “No Woman Is Illegal!”

I hope we see tee-shirts. That should become the punchline to almost every joke in the world:

A pirate walks into a bar with a steering wheel coming out of his fly.
The bartender says to him, “hey, you’ve got a steering wheel coming out of your fly!”
The pirate says, “Arrrggh, aye, and it’s drivin’ me nuts! And NO WOMAN IS ILLEGAL!”

Knock, knock!
Sho’s there?
Banana!
Banana who?
NO WOMAN IS ILLEGAL!

“No woman is illegal” is the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard a pandering politician say. It makes as much sense as those jokes.

There’s more. Read it all.
