1. Does Georgia Right to Life Now Support Embryonic Stem Cell Research?

I am guessing Dan Becker of Georgia Right to Life and Georgia Right to Life itself are just fine and dandy with embryonic stem cell research.They don’t like Karen Handel, RedState’s choice for Governor of Goergia, funding cervical cancer screenings, but they love them some Nathan Deal despite his support for a Henry Waxman backed piece of legislation funneling $500 million to the abortion industry explicitly for abortions.Well, Nathan Deal also signed on to NANCY PELOSI authored legislation that, in its own description, “allows for the use of fetal tissue in medical research and appropriates funds to the National Institutes of Health.”Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. Why Tiahrt Matters

A millimeter. A centimeter. An inch. They are all measures of distance. Even the smallest of them measures some distance.Our job this year as conservatives is to put some distance between us and the left. In doing so, it is our job to push the Senate Republican to the right. Every inch counts when dealing with 100 senators and 40 or 50 Republicans.Every inch.In Kansas, the Republican will win the general election. The question is who — Jerry Moran or Todd Tiahrt. The distance between the two men may only be inches on some issues, but are miles on others. And in each case, Todd Tiahrt is to the right of Jerry Moran.Todd Tiahrt moves the Senate right. Jerry Moran does not. In fact, Jerry Moran’s former campaign manager is declaring his support for Todd Tiahrt.Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. Charlie Rangel (D-NY) Epitome of Most Ethical Congress Ever. Plus, Racism!

By most ethical Congress ever, I of course mean the total opposite. Much like the claims of the most transparent administration ever – in Obama-era Newspeak terms, you must just assume the opposite to be true. Charlie Rangel, after having been forced, kicking and screaming, to step down as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee in March, has now been charged with multiple ethics violations by a bi-partisan House committee.Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. Thank you, Senator Kerry. Thank you.

It’s rare when we Fiscal Conservatives have as clear a teachable moment as you gave us with your decision to berth the Isabel (pronounced “luxury yacht”) in Newport, RI, instead of Nantucket, MA, where you and Teresa maintain a “cottage”.Again, we thank you.And, while we’re at it, we’ll point out that you are a hypocrite of the first rank.Please click here for the rest of the post.
