Fair Enough?


Does it matter? John McCain returned to “Late Show With David Letterman” Thursday night, appologizing for canceling an appearance three weeks ago, but should the onetime media favorite have been preparing for an ambush? A study shows the Kings of Late Night are not equal-opportunity destroyers this year when it comes to telling jokes about […]

Debate Coverage

McCain needs to go after Barack tonight, but it can’t be about Bill Ayers, per se. It should be about his radical past, in general. It should be about his connection to the financial crisis via ACORN. And it should be about Barack’s confession a couple of days ago, to a plumber concerned about his […]

Grab It


The economy needs to be grabbed as an issue by one of the candidates – and it should be John McCain. The void in leadership that it highlights presents an incredible opportunity to play president. It is Obama, though, who is seizing the moment. Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama plans to give a speech on […]

Too Late


Is McCain losing this race, or is he getting beat by monumental events, the political equivalent of acts of God? McCain’s definitely had his shortcomings despite the financial meltdown. Yesterday on This Week, George Will quoted General MacArthur to offer an explanation of McCain’s failures up to this point. “The history of the failure of […]



As much as liberals hate religion, they have no qualms about creating their own religion – or using the religion of others to manipulate.



Despite the 8 and 9 point edge that Rasmussen and Gallup give to Obama, Zogby is getting different results. The race for President of the United States remains far too close to call between Democrat Barack Obama and Republican John McCain as both candidates head toward the finish line, a recent Reuters/C-SPAN/Zogby daily tracking telephone […]

Sarah’s Smile


While voters like Sarah Palin, her performance in last week’s debate didn’t seem to impress as being presidential. While most voters surveyed hold a favorable view of Palin, the Republican vice presidential nominee, most also say that she is not qualified to serve as president, should that situation present itself – 52 percent said no […]

Hillary says…


Joe Biden was great. Sarah Palin was composed and effective – very good.

It would be a shame if, after two years of intense campaigning, November 4 arrived without voters knowing the essential details of Barack’s background. The degree to which it hasn’t been exposed is really bizarre. Sen. John McCain and his Republican allies are readying a newly aggressive assault on Sen. Barack Obama‘s character, believing that […]

Palin Power


Sarah is a superstar. Thursday’s highly anticipated face-off between Alaska governor Sarah Palin and Delaware senator Joe Biden was the most-watched vp debate of all time. Last night’s event was seen by nearly 70 million viewers, according to Nielsen Media Research. That’s the most-viewed debate — presidential or vp — since at least the second […]

Dick Pleased


Dick Morris thinks Sarah Palin’s debate performance was big news. She showed originality, charisma and sass – a style that is refreshing and different in our politics. She didn’t just win the vice-presidential debate, she showed that she belongs with Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton as among the best communicators of our modern political times. […]

How’d She Do?


Newsbusters did a nice recap of ‘analysis’ from TV talking heads of Sarah’s performance last night. On NBC, Chuck Todd observed “those that were tuning in looking for some sort of car wreck, probably came away disappointed.” CBS’s Katie Couric proposed, without saying in which camp journalists fall, “the headline is Governor Sarah Palin did […]

Better Wright


Yesterday I posted an ad from the Judicial Network that attempts to make the country aware of the Obamafia. It was ok. Here’s an RNC version that’s stronger, I think. But for this to be done with the viciousness it warrents, aren’t we looking for a 527campaign of expensive truth telling?

Palin Wins


Sarah Palin took the soft pitch of low expectations and knocked that sucker out of the park, demonstrating that she can hold her own, even offering moments of humor with her relaxed, good natured jabs, as she went head to head with a 35 year Senate veteran. She wasn’t totally without her now trademark moments […]



The McCain campaign has a new ad out today, reminding people that Joe Biden is the candidate with the proven ability to speak in gaffes.
