    The Hubbert Peak Theory of Rock, or, Why We’re All Out of Good Songs
    (i.e. the Correlation of Rock Music Quality vs US Oil Production)
    There is no information as to which is the leading of lagging indicator.

    the obama interview was a disgrace. the cornfields of iowa have less strawmen.

    Confirmed, Glenn Beck is Obama’s kamikaze pilot.

    Wow… just wow…

    Bye Beck, and thanks for the memories.

    “Newt’s first tactical error, getting in the mud with Romney, who can afford more mud than Newt. Stick to what has worked so far, and let Romney sink in his campaign’s own negativity.”

    See, Mr. Jacobson, we DO agree on something. If Newt would stick to being “Uncle Newt,” he’d be very hard to beat in the primary.

    But he. just. can’t. do. it. because he is undisciplined – with plenty of examples in both his private life and in his public life.

    Even Barack Obama has more self-control than Newt, which is pretty sad.

      Astroman, you have pointed out one of the major reasons, (discipline), that I believe that Newt will implode. The others include the copious excess baggage with which the DNC operatives will have a field day along with stance on illegal immigration.

      I guess that we should be asking ourselves, “Why are we not surprised.”

        And see, I see those two things as strengths – not weaknesses.

        Newts policy on immigration is polling in the 50% support range, and is far and away the most popular of each of the candidates on the issue among each of the three voter bases.

        And his so-called baggage is already well known. Someone brings up the baggage again, and it becomes nothing more then a “are you still harping on this” situation. Democrats going back 20 years, to holler about something we already know, in an attempt to smear him, are going to look pitiful with everyone…

        Newt being a bit of a wild-card with his mouth is the only thing that should be considered a negative imo. At the same time though, that mouth is also the thing that makes him a much, much, much stronger candidate – he is willing to speak strongly instead of tip-toe around trying to stay PC at all costs. The verbal slams we all so love in the debates come from the same place those slip-ups may.

        That said, he has handled himself much more adult-like then any other candidate in the field (outside maybe Santorium), so its possible he has been able to reign in his tendency with maturity. (As similar brilliant Conservative minds did as they matured – ie, Churchill, Nixon, Reagan, etc)

    Yet another “occupy” article that describes them as “largely peaceful”. Aside from all of the murders, they were largely peaceful except of course for all the rapes, but besides those they were “largely peaceful” other than when they are throwing molotov cocktails at police that is, etc, etc, etc,

    Could the legacy media go to more ridiculous extremes to cover for these people? Every time I doubt it, they find a new low…
