Spot On! Dying Republicans…

Peggy Noonan on the dying GOP: http://online.wsj.com/article/declarations.html They are also – Hill leaders, lobbyists, party speakers – successful, well-connected, busy and rich. They never guessed, back in ‘86, how government would pay off! They didn’t know they’d stay! They came to make a difference and wound up with their butts in the butter. But affluence […]

Newt, Burton, Term Limits…

Ten Years ago today…. http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-srv/politics/special/clinton/stories/burton050798.htm There’s an article from the Washington Post from May 7, 1998, referring to events from May 6, 1998. Newt Gingrich calls Dan Burton an embarrassment: ”This contrast was evident during the GOP’s closed conference meeting yesterday, when Gingrich apologized to his colleagues for how staffers distributed the tapes on Friday.

Obama versus Hillary – Indy Style

Indiana has the pleasure of actually mattering in this Election year. Earlier in the month, Barack Obama visited Plainfield High School. Hillary Clinton visited Ben Davis High School this past Saturday. WXNT producer Chris Spangle covered both and here are his impressions: Both gyms are of equal size. Both Schools opened space for overflow. Senator […]

Please Pay Here

You work at Burger King. It’s pay day Friday. Every two weeks, you earn $500. This BK pays in CASH. No withholding! That doesn’t mean you won’t be paying taxes. As you exit the building, there is a small booth where the IRS will look over your Cash, and take what it needs. Luckily, they […]

Is Stepfordish a Word?

One of the barometers of a man’s character is his wife. I appreciate all of the Democratic hubbys. Elizabeth Edwards, Michelle Obama, and Bill Clinton all seem to be of strong will and mind. The Republican wives all seem a little crazy. The most disturbing by far is Cindy McCain. Watch her at these rallys, […]

My Interview with MLK III

This is an interview I did in November with the son of Martin Luther King, Jr. and Coretta Scott-King. He looks just like MLK, and it was like speaking to Dr. King himself. (He is the one speaking in the clip where Clinton is sleeping.) It was one of the coolest things I’ve been able […]

Does it matter?

I have a question for you readers… Please leave comments. You can post anonymously, so please let me know what you REALLY think, and what bothers you the MOST. NO P.C. BullS^&T here… 1. Does it matter to you that Barack Obama is black? 2. Does it matter to you that Hillary is a woman? […]

Bhutto was a Crook

I found an interesting article at The Atlantic that is definitely worth a look while we canonize Benazir Bhutto. A couple paragraphs are pasted, then the links below: “Clearly, political assassinations are a bad thing. Equally clearly, political assassinations in a place like Pakistan seem to herald instability, and instability in Pakistan is frightening. That […]

On Checks and Balances

One of the most wise elements of the American system is the concept of Checks and Balances. Most people only apply this theory to the three branches of government. But let’s look at it through the paradigm of yesterday’s post: (Please strip yourself of prejudicial thoughts on the words lobbyist and special interest.) Every person […]
