“WE’RE THIS CLOSE TO LIVING IN A NATION WHERE BEING IN THE OPPOSITION IS ILLEGAL.” – The Astute Bloggers

“In fact, it seems statistically likely that you have been in a relationship with them. The divorce rate speaks for itself. Beyond that, although there aren’t any statistics (as far as I’m aware) for non-married break ups, it appears obvious that we are experiencing a crisis of failed relationships at every level and in every form. People don’t know how to be in relationships anymore, and I think this epidemic can be traced, at least in part, to the delusions of grandeur we instill in our little snowflakes from an early age.” – Matt Walsh

“‘I think it’s time Republicans no longer accept listening to the Democrats talk about a ‘war on women,” Huckabee said during a speech at the Republican National Committee’s winter meeting in Washington. ‘The fact is the Republicans don’t have a war on women, they have a war for women, to empower them to be something other than victims of their gender.’” – Washington Post

A federal grand jury indicted conservative author and commentator Dinesh D’Souza Thursday for allegedly violating U.S. campaign finance law.” – Breitbart

“Someone should get the President on the horn and remind him that it’s not just Fox News that’s reporting the truth of his bungling. That may have been the case at one point, but lately NBC, CBS, ABC, CNN, and even MSNBC have been tearing into his failed administration on a regular basis. Scandal after scandal has convinced the people he governs – and portions of the normally faithful media – that Barack Obama is simply incompetent.” – CainTV

“Because when I imagine Barack Obama’s State of the Union, I see a handsome, dignified man standing at the podium and behind him Joe Biden, sleeping. And next to him John Boehner, snoring. And arrayed before the president the members, napping.” – Peggy Noonan/WSJ

“So if Christie is no longer the candidate to beat in the 2016 Republican race, who is? Believe it or not, it’s Rand Paul.” – The Atlantic

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce is a politically entrenched synod of special interests. These fat cats do not represent the best interests of American entrepreneurs, American workers, American parents and students, or Americans of any race, class or age who believe in low taxes and limited government. The chamber’s business is the big business of the Beltway, not the business of mainstream America.” – Michelle Malkin/Right Wing News

“Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) proposed using the IRS to curtail Tea Party group funding during a speech on how to ‘exploit’ and ‘weaken’ the movement at the Center for American Progress on Thursday.” – The Federalist Papers

“Presidents have named big donors and bundlers to diplomatic posts for many decades. It’s an American tradition — one which should embarrass us, but it’s a bipartisan tradition, so it gets less attention as a result. Usually, though, the appointees at least make an effort to learn something about their new assignments before their confirmation hearings so as not to embarrass their bosses, or the rest of us.  On the latter point, it’s already too late with Tsunis.” – Hot Air
