NY Times worried Scott Walker's rightward shift will hurt election prospects



The New York Times has your back! That's what I have to say to any Republican candidate, who can always find a wealth of good advice in the Times. In this case they are expressing concern for Scott Walker. Since announcing his candidacy he has taken a number of conservative positions which writers at the Times worry may hurt him in the general election campaign.

Now a growing number of party leaders say Mr. Walker is raising questions about his authenticity and may be jeopardizing his prospects in states where voters’ sensibilities are more moderate.

Asked about same-sex marriage after his state’s ban was struck down in federal court and the Supreme Court refused to review that decision, Mr. Walker said, “For us, it’s over in Wisconsin.” At a gathering of Republican donors in New York in the spring, Mr. Walker indicated that his response to an eventual Supreme Court ruling, if it deemed same-sex marriage constitutional, would be in keeping with the spirit of his earlier remark about the question being a settled one in Wisconsin, people who attended the meeting said.

[But] His response to the Supreme Court’s decision legalizing same-sex marriage most emphatically demonstrated his sharp shift to the right: Mr. Walker called the court’s ruling “a grave mistake” and reiterated his call for a constitutional amendment that would allow states to ban same-sex marriage.

He used to oppose what he called government mandates on the use of ethanol in gasoline, for example, but told Iowans this year that he was willing to continue

Until this year, Mr. Walker supported a comprehensive overhaul, including a pathway to citizenship for people in the country illegally.

... [by shifting rightward] Mr. Walker appears increasingly willing to lose the general election to win the primary.

“Scott takes this path at his peril in New Hampshire,” said Charlie Bass, a former congressman there. By aligning himself with more conservative candidates on marriage, Mr. Walker puts at risk the support of more economy-focused voters in the first primary state, Mr. Bass said.

So what to make of all this?

Possibility #1: Scott Walker is a genuinely conservative candidate and the New York Times, in a backdoor way, is either trying to (a) nudge him back to the left, or (b) portray him as an out of touch conservative.

Possibility #2: Scott Walker is a genuinely liberal candidate who is pretending to be conservative, and the New York Times is (a) trying to not-so-subtlely portray him as a flip flopper or (b) nudge him back to the left or (c) simply discredit conservative positions.

It's such a complex question because first you have to figure out what Scott Walker really is, a subject of much dispute, and then you have to figure out what the motive of the Times is. Supporters view him as a sincere conserat

You'll never guess what worries leftists about relations with Cuba!


Now that leftists have their way and we have cordial relations with the dictatorial, communist, drug smuggling goverment of Cuba, they are still not satisfied. They are pleased that trade and relations will help prop up the (Raul) Castro dictatorship, but worried that economic ties will hurt the environment.

Witch doctors "casting spells" that turn African girls into sex slaves


The sex slave trade is bad enough but it gets ten times worse when witch doctors get into the act! Young Nigerian girls are captured by African witch doctors and have "spells" cast on them involving the elaborate use of poultry and pubic hair (from the victim, not the chicken), and then are sent to Europe to become sex slaves. (Sidenote: can witch doctors be sued for malpractice, like real doctors?) Anyway, this is what happens to a typical girl who falls under a "magic spell":

Meditation is dangerous and requires government regulation


It always pains me to report when a liberal activity requires regulation. Liberals are always happy to impose government regulation on everyone else, but when it comes to their pet interests, like abortion or yoga, they scream about government intrusion. So it is with a heavy heart that I report on the tremendous dangers posed by meditation, and the dire need for some government regulations.
