Will this be Sarah’s most memorable line tonight? “Here’s how I look at the choice Americans face in this election. In politics, there are some candidates who use change to promote their careers. And then there are those, like John McCain, who use their careers to promote change.” It has a sort of “Ask not,” […]

Sarah Palin, barring an unlikely bad performance tonight, was a great pick for John McCain. Dick Morris explains why. Understand: Palin is under attack because she was such a good choice.Remember the Democrats’ central charge on McCain – “He’s a Bush clone.” By choosing Palin, something George Bush would never have done, McCain showed how […]

Barack will try to distract from John McCain’s acceptance speech Thursday night by appearing, for the first time, on The Factor with Bill O’Reilly. The two parties reached agreement on a detente after a personal meeting between Obama and Fox News Chief Roger Ailes.  During the sit-down in a Waldorf-Astoria hotel suite in Manhattan that included Rupert […]

Rudy Giuliani has been on virtually every major show on every network over the past 24 hours talking up the McCain/Palin ticket. He is wonderfully good at it, and credible. Have a look.

Does anyone remember the philosophical differences between the political parties? It’s not a bad idea for the GOP to use its convention as a reminder. Which Fred Thompson did last night. Thompson – who ran for president this year and failed — described presumptive Republican nominee John McCain’s service to his country and laid into […]

Barney Frank, the gay Massachusetts congressman who faced a scandal, and a remprimand, 18 years ago for using his public powers to help his male prostitute boyfriend, is the first Democrat to say that Sarah Palin’s personal life should be part of the campaign conversation. “Apparently she’s a great favorite with the conservative social movement,” […]
