    Amid the hoots at Republican presidential candidate Rick Perry for saying there were "gaps" in the theory of evolution, the strongest evidence for Darwinism presented by these soi-disant rationalists was a 9-year-old boy quoted in The New York Times.

    National polls measuring support during the primary season are suspect because we don't have national primaries. We have state-by-state primaries and caucuses.

    Rick Perry has gotten the Sarah Palin treatment since he declared his intention to run for the presidency. No surprise there.

    The Hurricane Irene story ought to, but won't, shed light on our prejudices regarding science. The favored liberal Democratic narrative -- we've seen it trotted out against Rick Perry in the past two weeks -- goes like this: Democrats are the party of the enlightenment.

    Rick Perry announced that he was running for President and the dump truck hired by the left-wing media unloaded the next day. They rolled out their columns disparaging the “Texas miracle” quicker than a Nolan Ryan fastball. As always, the serious question is: How accurate are their stories?

    Jonathan Alter asked sincerely why everyone thinks Obama's such a bad president. I will answer with five reasons based on substance, although I could probably come up with twenty reasons easily.

    Obama rarely cares much for the approval of Congress. Once Congress stopped acting as a ways and means committee for him, the president started pursuing a policy of enacting legislation- or scuttling it-by regulatory action, nuisance lawsuits and abusing prosecutorial discretion.

    Texas Gov. Rick Perry is the front-runner for the Republican presidential nomination now, at least in the national polls. Undoubtedly that's the main reason so many East Coast pundits and Beltway wags are making fun of him. He likes guns! He's from Texas! He talks funny! He's a -- gird yourself now -- Christian!

    By any objective standard the portfolio would make any financial superstar green with jealousy. Fueled by his understanding of the inflationary policies unrelentingly pushed by his colleagues in Washington, Ron wisely loaded up on gold and gold mining stocks in the mid to late 1990s when those assets were regarded as the poor stepchildren of Wall Street.

    As the field of Republican Presidential candidates becomes clear, the media continues to incite controversy among them. This became obvious with the back and forth at the Iowa debate. For the most part, the candidates kept their focus throughout – the problem is Obama and come November 2012 he must be defeated.

    Pawlenty is out, Perry is in and Obama is...on vacation. This week was fun, and a mess. But aren’t they all? We learned President Obama is, after 2 1/2 years in office, ready to address his number 1 priority since taking office and release his Nixonian “secret plan” to deal with the jobs crisis...in September. Now THAT’S leadership! How’s that “hope and change” working out for you?

    Now that Governor Rick Perry has catapulted to “front runner” status and is posing a credible threat to President Obama’s re-election, your entire state is under the microscope.
