The View is evil. Don’t get me wrong – it was an impressive performance from Michelle Obama on the show this morning – she was warm, reasonable, and talked loads of family. No mean America talk, no first time being proud, either. But Woopi helped her on the “proud of America” debacle, playing the second […]

Quite often in this election year we have heard Democrats complaining about a biased media. This is humorous, considering that for years they’ve argued that there couldn’t possibly be such a bias – how could such a vast system of dissemination absorb a singular outlook? Now, liberals are complaining about the media being so biased […]

Here’s what Harry S. Truman, one of the great Democratic Presidents, has to say about the nominee to be of his party. “I have little patience with those who concoct fancy and plausible schemes out of thin air. Ignoring the lessons and experiences of the past, and who because they are convinced that existing methods […]

Women, we’re told, are going to vote for Barack. It’s a style thing. “He manages to be strong and clear,” she said of the Illinois Democrat, “but he pulls that off while being inclusive and listening to opposing views. I admire how he approaches problem-solving.” Like that strong and clear job he did of dealing […]

Barack’s campaign seems to have lost its growth potential ever since Americans got their first glimpse into his character with the Reverend Wright affair.

With […]

Bush Carter


I like this McCain counter-strategy of making Barack into Jimmy Carter. Turnabout is fair play, after all. I think they need to hit it harder. “[Senator Obama] wants a windfall profits tax on oil, to go along with the new taxes he also plans for coal and natural gas. If the plan sounds familiar, it’s […]

The Celtics really proved Barack’s point last night, if you think about it. Just over a year ago, Pierce begged Celtics management for help, as his team was finishing with the second-worst record in the league. He was rewarded with the addition of Garnett and Allen, among others. Pierce rewarded management by having a superb […]

Move On Lies

18Jun08 is using a new ad to push the deliberate misrepresentation of McCain’s “100 years” comment on Iraq. Moveon officials say this spot has tested strongly with focus group audiences, and they are running it on national cable and in Wisconsin, Ohio and Michigan. Isn’t amazing how easy it is for the good guys to […]

Hillary will join Barack on the campaign trail. Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton will make a joint appearance in Washington next week before major Cllinton fundraisers to bolster support for the presumptive Democratic nominee among his former rival’s backers, said a source familiar with the planning. She’s keeping her part of the deal. What’s she […]
