Barack’s close ties to radicalism are an area of his life that some 527 (Swift Boat style group) must be eagerly researching in preparation for the general election. In April 2004, Barack Obama told a reporter from the Chicago Sun-Times that he had three spiritual mentors or counselors: Jeremiah Wright, James Meeks, and Father Michael […]


The wings of outrageous Catholic Priest Michael Pfleger, well known in Chicago for his radical diatribes and his support of Louis Farrakhan and Barack Obama, have been clipped by a Cardinal. “To avoid months of turmoil in the church, Father Pfleger has promised me that he will not enter into campaigning,” (Cardinal Francis) George said […]


Everyone remembers the Swift Boat ads of 4 years ago and the huge impact made by that campaign to undermine John Kerry. That sort of attack during a presidential race, paid for by independent organizations not connected to the candidates or the parties, will likely play a big role this year as well. I love […]


How did Barack manage to snatch the nomination away from Hillary? Was it just inspirational rhetoric? Nope. Obama’s campaign mastered some of the most arcane rules in politics, and then used them to foil a front-runner who seemed to have every advantage—money, fame and a husband who had essentially run the Democratic Party for eight […]


Here we go again with the Hollywood promises to leave the country if the democrat doesn’t win. Remember Alec Baldwin’s commitment to move overseas if Al Gore didn’t win in 2000. You just can’t trust an actor – Bush beat Gore, and Baldwin stayed. But if you’re looking for motivation to let go of your […]


It’s a cliche now, I know, and I hate to make use of it. But that line on the economy that James Carville had hanging over his desk in Clinton campaign headquarters in 1992 was there because he knew it was the issue that would decide the election. For John McCain, the sign in HQ […]


Have watched some interviews of Scott promoting the book, but haven’t read it yet. He is bending over backwards to be nice to President Bush. Assuming the book is no more hard hitting than the interviews, this is not a collection of BLOCKBUSTER revelations, despite the frantic coverage over the past couple of days. His […]


Ah, let’s see. Where to start. Scott McClellan is a shit. How better to describe someone who writes a book blasting the guy he used to work for when that guy is still in office? Memoirs should wait until after the president has left office, thank you very much. But if Scott had some insights […]


Lobbyist Games

29May08

Does Barack hire lobbyists to work on his campaign? Nope. They’re too insidious to have around! They could corrupt the campaign! The co-director of Barack Obama‘s presidential campaign in Puerto Rico is a Washington-based federal lobbyist for the government of Puerto Rico. Ethics watchdogs said that the high-profile role of Francisco J. Pavía appears to […]


871 Days

29May08

The Republican National Committee is highlighting Barack’s failure to visit Iraq in nearly two and a half years as more evidence of his lack of readiness to handle foreign policy, joining an argument that McCain stumbled on a few days ago. Chairman Mike Duncan writes on the GOP website: Barack Obama has only visited Iraq […]


Gallup did a little research to see if Hillary is right. In the 20 states that she won this primary season, she beats John McCain 50% to 43%. In those same states, Barack Obama is about tied with McCain among national registered voters, 45% to 46%. On the other hand, Clinton does just as well […]


It’s unclear if this is a coordinated effort – yesterday, Fidel Castro endorsed Barack, and today comes a similar vote of confidence from Chuck D! Speaking to NME.COM, Chuck D said: “I think Barack Obama is the right man for the job, but maybe in the wrong country right about now that will be able […]


McCain Can Win

28May08

Even thought this is not a year for Republicans, McCain can win this election. That’s the report from GOP strategists, who envision the GOP losing congressional elections but holding the presidency: They believe that concerns among small town and rural voters about Mr Obama’s ethnic background and lack of experience would result in a decisive […]


New Politics

28May08

Under Barack’s new politics, McCain gets attacked for holding a fundraiser that is closed to the press: On Tuesday, likely Democratic nominee Sen. Barack Obama slammed GOP rival Sen. John McCain for holding a fund-raiser with President Bush with “no reporters” around. It’s true, John McCain wants the money the President can help raise, but […]


Small Mistake?

28May08

It looks like a small blunder: WASHINGTON – Sen. Barack Obama misspoke when he told a group of veterans that his uncle was among the troops who liberated the Auschwitz concentration camp, aides to the Democratic presidential candidate said Tuesday. In fact, Obama’s great-uncle took part in the liberation of one of the concentration camps […]


Obama continues to amaze with the folks he can convince to jump on his bandwagon. What a great TV commercial for McCain this will make – the list of thinkers, and organizations, who are on Barack’s side is absolutely mind numbing: Consider Robert Reich, Ted Kennedy, Tom Hanks, NARAL, John Edwards, Jane Fonda, The Teamsters […]
