Contest Winner Announced! (Plus I’m a Dork)

It is totally not like me at all to have a contest, pick a winner, email said winner to make sure she still wanted to win, get her address, package up the prize, and completely forget to announce who said winner is.

Just kidding. That’s totally like me.

So without further ado, the winner of Amelia Hamilton‘s signed book One Nation Under God: A Book For Little Patriots is Beth!

Thanks for playing everyone! And thanks to Amelia for donating and signing our prize.

Children’s Book Giveaway!

My friend Amelia Hamilton wrote a super cool children’s book called One Nation Under God: A Book For Little Patriots. It teaches some basic facts about the founding of our awesome and amazing country in clever verse along with some great artwork. It is endorsed by myself, and more importantly, Thing 1 and Thing 2. Even Leif likes it!

To get a good feel for what this book is about, read Amelia’s Behind-the-Scenes story on Big Hollywood.

In my possession, I have two signed copies of One Nation Under God. One is staying right here, because it’s become a favorite bedtime story. The other one will go to one of my eight lucky readers! To enter, leave a comment telling me which little patriot in your life will love this book. If you’re just entering to get Amelia’s signature so you can forge checks, don’t tell me. I don’t want to be liable.

No entries after midnight Friday PST. Winner will be chosen at random. As always, don’t blame me if you lose. Blame the machines.

Chipotle Winner Announced!

Congrats to Gracie!

LOVE all of Chipotle…sometimes as a bowl, and sometimes in a burrito…depends how i feel. their rice is the BEST! haven’t been able to reproduce that one yet…have a great day

Chipotle Giveaway

I love Chipotle because A) I love Mexican food, and B) I can pretend like Chipotle’s Mexican food is low calorie because it’s all fresh ‘n’ stuff. Everyone knows that naturally raised and grown meat and produce is the key to a trim waistline. Organic guacamole? Practically fat-free!

Or something.

Anyway, whether you like a salad-hold-the-dressing or a behemoth burrito with all the fixin’s, today I’m giving away a $25 gift card to Chipotle Mexican Grill.

To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me what your Mexican dish is. Or why Mexican food sucks. But if you think Mexican food is yucky, you really should rethink entering a contest where the prize is Mexican food.

No entries after midnight Friday PST. Winner will be chosen at random. As always, don’t blame me if you lose. Blame the machines.

Because tomorrow is my birthday…

Because it’s John Thune’s birthday too…

Because I love extra hot grande nonfat chai tea lattes with no water…

Because Starbucks is changing their label…

I’m giving away a $25 Starbucks giftcard!

To enter, leave a comment on this post telling me what your favorite drink from Starbucks is. Or wishing me happy birthday. Or both. No entries after midnight Friday PST. Winner will be chosen at random. If you lose, don’t blame me, blame the random number generator. :-)

Culture Of Corruption Giveaway Winner Announced

Jay: Favorite politician – Ronald Reagan. Is there any other?If you mean recent, Scott Walker, Governor-Elect of Wisconsin.

Enjoy the book, it’s a great read. Thanks everyone for playing!

Culture of Corruption Giveaway!

Last night I got invited to this fancy-pants party at the home of a very gracious host, who also turned out to be a book publisher.

I know. I don’t know how I got there either.

However I managed to wrangle the invitation, the amazing and incredible host seemed genuinely pleased to meet me. I gushed over his hospitality and beautiful home, and he gushed over Thing 1 (she and Leif had tagged along with me). He told me to stay right where I was, and he disappeared.

He came back with presents! Beautiful, hard-cover, word-filled presents. I’m keeping Courting Disaster:
How the CIA Kept America Safe and How Barack Obama Is Inviting the Next Attack
by Mark Thiessen because I haven’t read it yet, I really like Mark Thiessen, and let’s face it, when a super nice publisher tells you to read something and gives you the book, you read it.

The other book he gave me was Michelle Malkin‘s Culture of Corruption: Obama and His Team of Tax Cheats, Crooks, and Cronies. I got to meet the beautiful and wicked smart Malkin once upon a time, and I am the happy owner of an autographed copy of her latest book. The lovely publisher/host told me to keep the extra copy and give it to someone that needs it.

I know at least one of my eight readers needs this book. So it’s giveaway time!

To enter: Leave a comment telling me who your favorite conservative author, blogger, or commentator is. Or your six favorite. Or your favorite politician. Or a note of sympathy for us Californians. Or how many Coke Zeros you’ve consumed today (I’m on my third and it’s not even 10A.M.). Basically – leave a comment!

Winner will be chosen at random using a random number generator. If you lose, blame the machines. It’s what I do. It makes me feel better. No entries after midnight EST on Thursday.

Name Jenny’s New Show & Win!

I really, really love hosting The Smart Girl Report for Smart Girl Politics.

I really, really love interviewing candidates. I think it’s essential that we get to know those running for office before we vote for them.

Unfortunately, the two weren’t meant to live together. Smart Girl Politics is a non-profit organization, and in order to keep everything on the up and up, I’m no longer able to interview and/or endorse candidates on The Smart Girl Report.

I totally understand that. But I’m hesitant to give up a platform that allows candidates to get their message out to the public. And the public is hungry to hear from our guys and girls working to get elected.

So…all of that just to say…

I’m starting a new show. In addition to The Smart Girl Report, I’ll also be hosting a weekly 30 minute show that will focus on the upcoming primaries and the November elections. I already have some great candidates lined up, as well as some special guest co-hosts, and needless to say, I’m very excited about it.


I’m horrible at coming up with names for things. Really. The ability to come up with something clever or funny or smart for a title eludes me. There are people that are a lot better at that stuff. Which is why I’m turning to you guys.

I’m holding a contest to figure out the name of this new show that will air each week on From the Right Radio.

How to enter: Email me ([email protected]) with your suggestions by midnight this Friday (Eastern). I’ll pick 4 or 5 of my favorites and put up a poll on, which everyone will vote on until Monday night at midnight. The winner will be announced Next Tuesday morning.

How do you win? That’s easy. The person that suggests the winning title is the winner! If more than one person happens to suggest the same name, and it happens to be the winner, I’ll throw their names into a hat and pick one. I’m good at the randomness technology.

What do you win? A $50 gift certificate to Amazon. Woohoo! Who doesn’t love Amazon?


On your mark…

Get set…


Good luck!
