Redstate keeps getting better and better. If you aren’t checking it out every single day, you should be. Not only has the site re-design been a smashing success, but in the latest edition of the Redstate Radio podcast, we have an interview with Rush Limbaugh. Pretty cool.
Today was a big day for Redstate, as Redstate 2.0 was rolled out. It looks fantastic, and I encourage you to go over and check everything out. Lots of great features, and it remains the best Republican community on the internet: Since the beginning of this year, we have been plotting the relaunch of [...]
Frankly, I don’t care what most people think of President Bush; I like the guy, even if I don’t always agree with him. But when William F. Buckley talks, I listen: I think Mr. Bush faces a singular problem best defined, I think, as the absence of effective conservative ideology. He’s a man who ran [...]

The top fifty conservative rock songs. I guess. I'm not sure I can take any list seriously when it includes Sammy Hagar. You remember Hagar: he's the blonde chick that ruined Van Halen.
The Republican Party of Virginia spotlights a different grassroots activist every so often. This week, the honoree is Adam Tolbert, the Smyth County Conservative. A worthy individual if ever there were one. Adam is a senior at UVa-Wise. He's a good young conservative, even if he didn't enroll in the course that I'm [...]
I don't know, but the American Conservative Union gave Sen. Allen a 100% in their latest ratings: The American Conservative Union, the nationâ€™s oldest and largest grassroots lobbying organization, today released its 2005 â€œRating of Congress,â€ the definitive conservative assessment of the federal legislative branch. ACU has rated every member of the House and Senate since 1971, [...]
Blanton at Redstate asks if it is time for the rise of Redstate to the fore of the conservative movement. If you are interested in the conservative movement, you need to read this.
I meant to mention this last night -- SST didn't forget. RPV Chair Kate Obenshain Griffin will be speaking at UVa tonight, at an event co-sponsored by the Network of enlightened Women (NeW), the Virginia Advocate, The Federalist Society, College Republicans, and the Law GOP. The topic: "Running on Empty: Why Campus Liberals and [...]
This is fantastic data and analysis, by Jim Lindgren over at The Volokh Conspiracy: Last year I was working on an article or chapter on the subject. While in the last decade black conservatives are very common, roughly as common as black liberals, black Republicans are relatively few in number.... Black conservatives tend to be social conservatives, [...]
Just received in the mail: "Getting America Right: The True Conservative Values Our Nation Needs Today" by Edwin Fuelner and Doug Wilson. Rick Sincere has some thoughts on the book (and other things) here, and I am certainly looking forward to digging into it. Says Publishers Weekly: Flag, faith and family; free markets [...]
There's a new Virginia blog with a Shenandoah Valley focus: Morgan's Riflemen. Welcome to the blogosphere! A post on legislation proposed by Valley members of the General Assembly favorably quotes Sen. Russ Potts repeating that tired old saw, "'There is no free lunch.'"
