House Republicans finally got their hearings on Benghazi, and we have learned that the Obama Administration, the CIA, and the FBI massaged their talking points before announcing the attack last September, and that at least a couple of people thought the U.S. military could have gotten to Benghazi qu ...

Did you miss the Day of Resistance? Don't even know what it is? Well, it was a tea-party style throwdown last Saturday, in which thousands of your fellow citizens went packing in public to give Kenyan Pretender Obama the old cold-dead-hands salute.
You might expect our friends the rightbloggers wo ... More >>
By now you've heard about the Romney 47% video and the lousy poll numbers he's been getting. Were you aware that it's all the fault of the liberal media?
Yeah, we know, you've been hearing conservatives talking about liberal media bias forever. It's their version of the Bowery Boys' Routine 11. But ... More >>
Vice President Joe Biden said in a speech last week that the GOP's calls to "unchain Wall Street" really mean "they gonna put y'all back in chains."
Having just launched their own Vice-Presidential candidate to less than earth-shaking effect, rightbloggers flipped out over Biden's remarks, expressi ... More >>
Was it the video hit his Super PAC put out on Romney? Was it his heroic denunciation of his ex-wife and the Liberal Media (mostly the Liberal Media)? Whatever the reason, Newt Gingrich won a big surprise victory in Saturday's South Carolina primary.
Rightbloggers who've always loved the former Spea ... More >>
Everyone else has been the GOP Presidential front-runner -- why not Ron Paul? He's one point behind the current Next President of the United States, Newt Gingrich, on the cusp of the Iowa caucuses, and has been on the Jay Leno Show.
Naturally this has led to attacks on Paul -- but not so much by th ... More >>
Months ago, rightbloggers were celebrating the rise of Herman Cain. Then they grew restless, and moved on to Michele Bachman, Rick Perry, and Chris Christie, each of whom disappointed.
Now Cain is back, hilariously leading in some GOP Presidential polls and winning some straw polls, too. Cain is pr ... More >>
Last Tuesday a Democrat came from behind to win a special election in New York's overwhelmingly Republican 26th Congressional District. Kathy Hochul's surge coincided with heavy, issue-specific campaign advertising, reminding NY-26 voters that Republicans in Congress supported a plan to turn Medicar ... More >>
The effort by Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker and the Republican-led state legislature to deprive the state's teachers of collective bargaining rights was catnip to rightbloggers last week. This is because it involves two of their traditional objects of hatred: Unions and public education.

Hey sheeples: Barack Obama thinks he's better than you.
Obama gets a lot of this from conservatives, and has since before he was elected. He's been called "arrogant" by thousands of them, including Karl Rove and Vegas entertainer Wayne Newton.
But this week he got a heavier dose of it than usual, ... More >>
In journalism, the depths of August are often called "silly season," because many newsmakers are on vacation, forcing bored reporters to fill up space with goofy stories (e.g.).
For rightbloggers, of course, silliness is a year-round thing. But with the New York mosque controversy -- a Burlington ... More >>
Mark Halperin's and John Heilemann's new book Game Change about the 2008 Presidential campaign is full of hilarious revelations. Among these is the news that Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid listed among Barack Obama's electoral advantages that he was "light skinned" and had "no Neg ... More >>
On the weekend before a nationally-covered upstate New York Congressional election, the Republican candidate endorsed the Democratic candidate. This is a rarity in American politics, if not a first.
Rightbloggers played a key role in this historical achievement. Let's step back several weeks and ... More >>
As we have seen, repeatedly, rightbloggers don't need much to set them off. This week, for example, they got a lot of mileage out of Obama asking for dijon mustard on his hamburger. When rightwing talking heads made a big deal of the President's condiment choice, lefties made mock of them. Righ ... More >>
