DOA

14Nov08

Can this be for real, or is it just the usual gameplaying – make women feel good about Barack by pretending to be respecting Hillary? George Stephanopoulos reported Clinton’s name being in the mix last week on Good Morning America, but the buzz grew louder today after Clinton was spotted boarding a flight to Chicago. […]


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 […]


Glib Guidance

13Nov08

The biggest failure in network news has some advice for one of America’s biggest political stars. Couric thinks Sarah Palin has a thing or two to learn about politics before she contemplates a White House run in 2012. “I think she should keep her head down, work really hard and learn about governing. Katie is […]


Bad News

13Nov08

MSNBC got confirmation of the Sarah Palin Africa controversy from a McCain campaign insider who doesn’t exist. MSNBC was the victim of a hoax when it reported that an adviser to John McCain had identified himself as the source of an embarrassing story about former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, the network said Wednesday. David […]


Rebirth

11Nov08

Sarah’s got herself in rehab. Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, amid speculation she’ll run for president in four years, blamed Bush administration policies for the defeat last week of the GOP ticket and prayed she wouldn’t miss “an open door” for her next political opportunity. Not drug rehab. Political rehab. She’s redefining herself – trying to […]


Pat’s Tingle

09Nov08

Pat Robertson is as excited by Barack as Michael Moore is. “He can be one of the great presidents of the United States if he doesn’t get pulled to far from the center.” On Palin – “Just not ready for prime time.”


Ya Sarah

08Nov08

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


Back Stabber

08Nov08

Who is trashing Sarah? Mitt Romney says the petty anonomous leaks against Palin aren’t coming from him. Here’s the headline in today’s Boston Herald – “Mitt Romney: I’m no back stabber.” Fox News, the New York Times [NYT] and Newsweek have reported on a host of criticisms of Palin, including that she threw tantrums that […]


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 […]


This should have happened in July. But it could provide the difference in the bitter neighborhoods. John McCain has not wielded the Rev. Jeremiah A. Wright Jr. club over Democratic rival Barack Obama, who repudiated his former pastor and eventually left his Chicago church. But that hasn’t stopped some of those supporting the Republican presidential […]


Sarah Palin got used by some Canadian pranksters pretending to be French President Sarkozy. While it’s got to be embarrassing to have been taken in, Sarah survived the scam without humiliation. The worst part is not having figured it out over six minutes until the perp identified himself as being someone other than the French […]


Pulling Punches

03Nov08

Even Joe the Plumber is too upwardly mobile to overtly question Barack’s patriotism – but why not just come out and say, when asked if his love of country is in doubt, say sure! “McCain has fought and bled for our country, loves our country,” said Joe Wurzelbacher, aka “Joe the Plumber,” who has campaigned […]


Zogby Shocker

01Nov08

The race for president tightens, as the Zogby poll shows McCain cutting two points off Barack’s lead. That’s good news – but that’s not the surprise. Republican John McCain made a small gain against Democrat Barack Obama and has pulled back within the margin of error, now trailing Obama by five points, 49.1% to 44.1%, […]


Barack Bizarro

Should illegals be part of the Social Security System? Should they receive benefits?


Trader Joe

30Oct08

Where’s Joe? Although it might seem like Joe “the Plumber” Wurzelbacher is everywhere these days, he wasn’t at John MCain’s rally this morning in the small town of Defiance, Ohio. Except that nobody told the Republican presidential nominee that. And so, in the midst of his speech, McCain called out to Wurzelbacher, as he often […]

This sucker should be in heavy rotation.
