    What's doing? Palin's appearance on Greta last night certainly leaves the impression she's not running, and the reasons she articulated may very well be what she is thinking, not just cover talk: If someone doesn't deeply want it, they should not run. Chris Christie (regardless of his...

    Rick Perry is pushing back against criticism of his debate performances, particularly the Florida debate, by arguing that we should not elect the smoothest debater: "As conservatives we know that values and vision matter. It’s not who is the slickest candidate or the smoothest debater that...

    Via HotAir, Mitt Romney has scored two significant conservative endorsements recently, Jeff Flake and Darrel Issa.  While that may not constitute a coalescing around Romney, it does help insulate him from RINO charges.  Whatever he once was, is he now the conservative who can win? What's up...

    See dissent is patriotic. I disagree with Matt Knee's post earlier quoting Megan McArdle and Bryon Preston on the Rick Perry Gardasil issue. It's not a huge issue for me, but it's also not a health care issue since it's a question of the mandatory nature. The question...

    This strikes me as more significant than Pawlenty for Romney, because it represents the future of the Republican Party coming out for Perry, whereas Pawlenty in many ways represented the past.  Via CNN: Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal is backing Rick Perry for president, a major endorsement...

    In a post at NRO, praising Romney without bashing other Republican candidates: But he’s not only a family man, he is a man of principle. He believes in the bedrock conservative ideals of limited government and free enterprise. He will stand up for America’s allies when they...

    I thought Romney did well last night, as did Perry (although expectations were higher for Perry).  Newt was the star. But, Romney's post-debate performance by his messaging team was horrid, playing the "kill social security card" on Perry.  We can quibble about whether the social security...

    All this talk about Rick Perry being too much like Dubya has infiltrated the brain of the person who tweets for The Hill. From @thehill: From The Hill, at the link in the tweet:  Just a mistake, or creating a story?...

    It's lonely out here in independent blogger world, working for the greater glory not the greater paycheck. That's not to say bloggers who work for The Man are not independent thinkers and writers, but the pressures are there depending upon who The Man is: An escalating series of...

    Rudy famously waited too long in 2008, by skipping Iowa, New Hampshire and South Carolina, assuming he would win big in Florida.  He didn't, because by the time the primaries arrived in Florida, Rudy was an also ran. Back in July I suggested that Mitt Romney...

    It's coming too fast and furious, and in some cases is too bizarre, to summarize here.  And some of the charges are not worth repeating. While I'm sure his supporters are frustrated, they shouldn't be. Better to get it all out there and deal with it now.  He'll...
