Pressing Sarah

13Nov08

At the Republican Governor’s Conference in Miami, it might as well be reconfigured into the Sarah Palin Conference. After Barack, she’s the biggest political star in the country. At a short press conference, she was asked what she’s doing since the last governor’s get-together. “I had a baby, I did some traveling, I very briefly […]


Newt running the GOP? Great idea. Newt Gingrich has let it be known that, if Republicans want him, the former U.S House speaker is willing to serve as chairman of the national party and lead it out of the wilderness it’s blundered into. The question is whether the 168-member Republican National Committee is open to […]


Ya Sarah

Sarah calls them jerks. They deserve it. An angry aide characterized the Palins as “Wasilla hillbillies looting Neiman Marcus from coast to coast.”


In four years, America’s going to be eager for change. So which Republican is best positioned to challenge Barack in 2012? When asked to choose among some of the GOP’s top names for their choice for the party’s 2012 presidential nominee, 64% say Palin. The next closest contenders are two former governors and unsuccessful challengers […]


The Democrat’s idea of education. It seems to me that social programs would head towards obsoletion instead of endless expansion if Democrats would end their partnership with the teachers unions and start focusing on competent education instead.

Military Votes

There is controvery in Virginia over the votes of deployed forces. The McCain campaign went to court to make sure that late arriving absentee ballots would be counted. A federal judge has ordered election officials in Virginia to preserve late-arriving absentee ballots that Republican John McCain’s campaign claims should be counted. The McCain campaign says […]

Panthers

You have maybe heard the story about two black panthers guarding the door to a voting place in Philly, one holding a nightstick. Is it true? Well, here they are. Fox News has been pushing the story, while the Obama campaign denies this is a problem. Fox says one of two black panthers on the […]


Zogby Close

Zogby jumps 4 points toward Barack. Democrat Barack Obama leads Republican John McCain in five of eight key battleground states as Americans prepare to vote in the White House race, according to a series of Reuters/Zogby polls released on Tuesday. Obama expanded his national lead to 11 points over McCain among likely U.S. voters in […]

Do Barack’s ties to racial divisiveness bother you?


If you aren’t concerned about the radicals, racists and bigots with whom Barack built his political career, does it bother you that Barack has lied to you about his past associations?


Your Vote

Are you confused about how to vote today?


A good analysis in the Telegraph of London on just how screwy it is to vote for Barack. The choice faced by the electorate is clear. It can either vote for reality or for escapism: and John McCain has the greater appreciation of what reality might entail. I have been struck on several visits here […]


Chump Change

03Nov08

Nearly half of American wage earners pay no federal income taxes. Barack proposes that in order to make that system more fair, those who aren’t paying any taxes should get a rebate paid to them from the taxes from the 5% who pay 50% of the nation’s income tax burden. Do people really believe this? […]
