JONAH GOLDBERG:: Rand Paul’s Interesting Advantage – NRO

By Jonah Goldberg- Like a lot of folks, including even Jen Rubin, I was impressed with Rand Paul’s recent appearance on Fox News Sunday. And, in general, he’s been a much more formidable politician than your average rookie Senator (and certainly a better politician than his father).

LARRY KUDLOW:: The Pro-Growth Sequester | RCP

By Larry Kudlow - February 21, 2013 -- The Obama administration is whipping up hysteria over the sequester budget cuts and their impact on the economy, the military, first providers, and so forth and so on. Armageddon.

MICHAEL BARONE:: GOP Has Trouble Settling on Candidates Who Can Win | RCP

By Michael Barone - February 21, 2013 -- One of the interesting things about recent elections is that Republicans have tended to do better the farther you go down the ballot. They've lost the presidency twice in a row, and in four of the last six contests. They've failed to win a majority in the U.S. Senate, something they accomplished in five election cycles ...

HENNINGER:: Hollywood Forgets 9/11 – WSJ

By DANIEL HENNINGER -- Before Hollywood blackballs "Zero Dark Thirty" director Kathryn Bigelow this Sunday evening, a final and much-deserved stare is in order at the source of this distasteful snub—Senators Dianne Feinstein, Carl Levin and irresistibly along for the ride, John McCain.

JONAH GOLDBERG:: Leave Hollywood to the Liberals – NRO

By Jonah Goldberg -- ‘We need to buy a movie studio.” Amid the umpteen conferences, panels, meetings, and informal conversations in the wake of the presidential election, this idea has been a near constant among conservatives who feel like the country is slipping through their fingers.

On Wednesday Florida Republican Rick Scott became the latest GOP Governor to volunteer to shoulder some responsibility for ObamaCare, which has liberal sages gloating about a resistance-is-futile shift in the GOP. The media don't want to discuss the substance, only the politics, so allow us to report how the flippers are justifying their flips. • Take the money or ... Go To Article
