It’s time for conservatives nationwide to rise up and stand with Wisconsin Republicans against the enraged union-fed beast they stung earlier this week.
The House Homeland Security Committee hearings on the radical Islamic threat facing America’s youth produced some incredible moments, some heartbreaking, some stupefying and others Razzie-worthy (Keith Ellison, anyone?) Congressman Al Green, however, insulted my intelligence with his demand to know why the Ku Klux Klan isn’t being investigated.
Discussing perceived political angles to tragedies, especially as they’re happening, is always touchy. Even if there is a valid policy observation to be made, you’re opening yourself up to ready-made accusations of insensitivity, partisanship, and opportunism.

The three week continuing resolution (CR) just passed by the House with very modest cuts in order to keep the government running while negotiations with the White House and Senate Democrats proceed should be the last olive branch. And the cuts should also include some lefty sacred cows such as elimination of funding for public broadcasting.
