“Shooting a Possible”


Target shooters refer to putting all 10 shots into the Ten-Ring of the bullseye as “shooting a Possible,” i.e,, achieving the best score one can.

There were 27 house seats that the “experts” rated as toss ups in the recent election. Republican won every one of them—not 10 out of 10, 27 out of 27. There was no blue wave, except in a handful of urban areas where logistical failures related to stocks of preprinted votes caused delays in ballot counting.

The Week Ahead


These days, I’m only cleared for local rumor, so I’m not sure about the reliability of the various hints, leaks, and innuendos swirling around the legal challenges to the questionable vote counts in Georgia, Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Nevada, and Arizona. However, I’m probably safe in predicting that while all those case won’t be settled this week, we will see actual hard news about them that will be interesting.

BTW, when the Biden family began working with Chinese investors, did anyone inform them of the Chinese curse that goes, “May you live in interesting times!”?

Immigration, Arizona, and the President


Say, isn’t the Supreme Court about to rule in the Arizona immigration law case? You know, the one about the law requiring Arizona cops to verify whether someone has the right to be in the country.

Let’s say that Arizona wins. Wouldn’t “legalizing” a whole bunch of illegal immigrants “protect” them? Is that part of what’s going on? Is Barack Obama thumbing his nose at Arizona (and possibly the Court)?

Your Argument Is “Not Selling Very Well”


When the Solicitor General gets that feedback from a liberal Justice (Sotomayor), you know he’s having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Arizona v. United States did not seem to go well for the Obama Administration today.

Ed Morrissey concludes

If the White House loses their challenge to the most controversial part of the law, expect the Left to go after Verrilli again as they did after his difficult day defending ObamaCare.  He may have performed better this time, though, at least on the secondary issues.  And once again, the problem was less with Verrilli and more with the administration’s positions that Verrilli had to defend.
