Still more to come! Stay tuned…

Songs of the Month

This month’s songs of the month come at the end of the month because it has taken me that long to find some really great new music (or rather, new to me music). But, at last, here it is.

This month’s post is dedicated to one band. Cartel.

Now, I had heard of Cartel several years ago but I hadn’t ever really listened to their music. Luckily, that changed over spring break. One of my friends happened to have a Cartel cd and at some point durring the 30 hours of driving played it.

I love them. Their pop/punkyness comes with a bit of a hard edge at times but is comfortably balanced out by blindingly heart felt balads.

Give them a listen. You won’t regret a moment of it.

Back From Break

Hello again everybody,

It’s been a while since I wrote anything as you may have noticed. Sad, I know… but take heart because I’m back from beautiful Nags Head, NC. I’m rested, relaxed, and ready to blog.

But before I get back into the swing of things let me deliver on some of the promised vacation videos and pictures.

Nags Head is awesome and I had a blast with my friends. I have a ton of video to edit and put up online. At the moment I only have one video that’s finished and ready for your viewing pleasure… It’s from our Rita’s Road Trip.

You see on Thursday I left my beach house to attend the Media Research Center’s Dishonor awards in DC. My friends went with me and on the drive back we decided to hit every Rita’s water ice we possibly could for free water ice.

Here are the fun times that ensued:

On Spring Break in Nags Head, NC

Hey dearest fans,

I’m in North Carolina for the week and while I’m having a blast the internet here is somehow worse than it was a CPAC. So I’m experiencing every blogger’s nightmare…

The inability to update.

I’m sad, but somehow I think the beautiful weather and fun times with my friends will get me through it.

I’ll post up some vids and pics from my vaca when I get a chance.

Till then,
CP

Bumbling Idiot Could Be Gone Soon

Yea… I know, when you read the title of this post you got your hopes up that I was talking about Bobblehead Barack but alas, I’m talking about our bumbling idiot:

michael steele

Yup. That’s right, our fearless semi-leader could be ousted from the RNC soon. If you believe the rumors (H/T AOL):

According to multiple former high-level RNC staffers familiar with the dynamics involved, Steele is unlikely to survive in the post if favored Republican Jim Tedisco loses his open-seat race to Democrat Scott Murphy. The special election, scheduled for March 31, is to fill a vacancy left when Kirsten Gillibrand took Hillary Clinton’s Senate seat.

If Tedisco loses, the ex-staffers said, “Steele is done.”

Completely, definitively?

“Absolutely.”

And I say if you believe the rumors for a reason. Especially since there are two different accounts of Steele’s fate:

a no confidence vote on RNC Chairman Michael Steele is likely to be called after the NY-20 special election on March 31 — regardless of whether Republicans win the seat or not.

I half wish these rumors were true. I say half because while Steele’s idiotic performance from an organizational stand point thus far, his increasing liberalism, and his ridiculous and failed attempt to take on Rush Limbaugh it would be disastrous to replace him at this point. Yes, it true that the party will likely continue to falter under Steele’s “guidance” but the firestorm that would result from an ousting of the head of the RNC (and arguably the face of the party) this early on without some sort of catastrophic failure on his part would be far worse than keeping him on… for the moment.

All of us who want Steele gone before he goes further off the deep end must bide our time. If the current trend continues it wont be long until Steele does something worthy of an ouster. We need to find a way to get rid of him with the smallest amount of “the Republican party is imploding” talk as possible.

Be patient. Let Steele evict himself from the RNC chairmanship. It will come, we only need to be ready when it does.

UPDATE: Hello to everybody from Ace of Spades HQ… make sure you stop by Hot Air and vote on whether you want Steele to be ousted…

Did Jonah Goldberg Steal a Link From Me?

Well… not exactly. But yes, sort of.

I guess that’s how I would characterize the situation that Tommy Christopher wrote up over at AOL and Daily Dose. The whole thing centers around a tip I sent out this afternoon about CNN’s estimation of the lefty blogosphere.

This is how Tommy characterized what happened thereafter:

What’s interesting is how I found out about the story. I was on an email list for TheCollegePolitico.com, run by Steve Gutowski, a guy that I met at CPAC. I got his tip at 1:55pm. Also on that email were NRO’s Jonah Goldberg, and Captain Ed Morrissey, who used the tip at Hot Air:

CNN asks the question: Whither the liberal blogosphere in the Age of Obama? Mark Preston asks Markos Moulitsas and Jane Hamsher how having a Democratic shutout in Washington DC will affect their blogging (via The College Politico)

See what Ed did there? He credited the source of the tip. Continue reading “Did Jonah Goldberg Steal a Link From Me?”
