Last week the American Principles Project announced that it would boycott the next CAPC convention if organizers allowed the gay conservative group GOProud to participate. Now, the APP has gotten other Religious Right groups to sign on to a letter to announcing their intent to likewise withdraw from the event: A coalition of conservative groups led by the American Principles Project today sent a letter to David Keene, Chairman of the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) and his fellow board members announcing their withdrawal from participation in the 2011 CPAC. The... MORE >

Republican Rand Paul’s campaign just released robocalls and radio ads narrated by Mike Huckabee, who criticizes Jack Conway’s “Aqua Buddha” ad. Huckabee says that “the only thing worse than a politician attempting to parade his faith for the purpose of getting a vote, is a person who would falsely attack his opponent’s faith, and then lie about it.” The details of Conway’s ad have been confirmed as accurate, and Paul continues to avoid questioning about the “Aqua Buddha” story. But more importantly, we have to ask: is Mike... MORE >

It looks like Janet Porter is finally getting back to work, as she's started recording daily commentaries for AFA radio. Bill Donohue is mad that people can make fun of Catholics but not gays. But what isn't Donohue mad about? If you are going to spend money on attack ads, be sure you are attacking the right person. Mitt Romney is being pressured by conservatives to denounce MA health care reform while being pressured by Massachusetts Republicans not to do so. The National Review calls Joe Miller "Cool As Ice." That is not the phrase I would... MORE >

I have to say that this op-ed from Andrea Lafferty of the Traditional Values Coalition alleging that there has been some sort of double-standard in the treatment of Elena Kagan and Harriet Miers might just be the dumbest thing that anyone has written during this entire confirmation process: The parallels between the nominations of Kagan and Miers — their similar legal background and connection to the presidents who nominated them — makes the various reactions from the right and the left stand in stark contrast. While Miers was harassed and criticized by both sides of... MORE >

It seems that the Right is all agog over this article in the "National Review" by Shannen Coffin, claiming that Elena Kagan "manipulated the statement of a medical organization to protect partial-birth abortion" while working in the Clinton White House. Here is the gist of Coffin's "bombshell": There is no better example of this distortion of science than the language the United States Supreme Court cited in striking down Nebraska’s ban on partial-birth abortion in 2000. This language purported to come from a “select panel” of the American... MORE >

Sen. Robert Byrd passed away this morning at the age of 92. Despite the fact that she is appearing at a conference organized by and featuring a bunch of Birthers, Rep. Michele Bachmann insists that she does not share that view. Sarah Palin headlined Freedom Fest 2010 and organizers were only able to fill about one-third of the arena. Just like that, the GOP has removed Gen. Jerry Boykin from its witness list during the Kagan hearing. The National Review endorsed John McCain over J.D. Hayworth. The Religious Right wants to know how much money Comcast makes from its... MORE >
