On Twitter last night, the joke went around that we have absolute proof that Osama bin Laden and Muammar Gaddafi are dead because they just registered to vote in Chicago.

Michael Walsh just posted something on NRO that has revitalized my will to fight.
Uh-oh. This does not look good for the 88-year old gentleman from Texas.

I know lefties like to claim they’re charitable, but they’re mostly charitable with other people’s money — i.e. tax money. There’s a study out now that shows that conservatives and Republicans (they’re not the same) are far more charitable with their own money than lefties are.
I know I haven’t waded into the whole Chick-Fil-A thing yet, largely because I’ve still been dealing with some personal stuff, but this should help those — like me — who think this good company is being unfairly vilified for an answer to a question in an interview.
I’ve been writing a lot about Obama chasing off more centrist Democrat voters with his radical lefty agenda, but who knew he’d be chasing off former elected officials from his own party?
Just to show how “moderate” a “moderate” Democrat really is (emphasis in original):
Rep. Chuck Kruger (D-Thomaston), the Democrat chair of the Maine legislature’s Moderate Caucus, used his Twitter account to express his view that former Vice President Dick Cheney should be executed. This comment has led some to question the validity of Kruger’s moderate credentials.

My conclusion: these results show Republicans about as strong as they were in 2010, when Republican Scott Walker was elected governor by a 52%-46% margin, and they show Democrats weaker than they were in 2008, when Barack Obama carried Wisconsin 56%-42%. That was my conclusion as well when I compared Barack Obama’s 2011 Gallup job approval in the 50 states with the popular vote for the House in 2010.
