A lot more conservative than Mitt Romney
“I don’t claim to be the perfect candidate I just claim to be a lot more conservative than Mitt Romney.” Newt Gingrich I am supporting Newt Gingrich for president. I have kept my options open till very recently. There were several candidates whom I could have supported enthusiastically. One by one they have either chosen not to run or have performed poorly in doing so. | Read More »
In Which I Become A Bot
My deepest yearnings cry out in anguish in the face of this necessity, yet Necessity being the Unstoppable Force, today I must sadly declare my Botness. I have made feeble efforts here to argue for comity among conservatives, for all of us to keep an open mind and a civil tongue, and to eschew the mindless vitriol that leads thither to destruction. My feeble efforts | Read More »
Nobody loves me, everbody hates me, I’m gonna eat worms.
That old childhood lament is roughly on intellectual par with much of the commentary many see fit to share with us each day. If they aren’t wringing their hands because Ronald Reagan hasn’t been posthumously cloned they post little snippy worthless comments about how great their guy is and how awful the rest are. Its a childish waste of time. Newsflash for all the Gingrich, | Read More »
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow…..
Ninety-three years ago today at 11:11 AM in Compiegne France, the war to end all wars ended. War is a grisly horror. There is no beauty in it. Otherwise great men have foolishly proclaimed how wonderful war is, filled with heroism and glory. There are heroes in war it is true, but glory, none. Most young men who march off to war do so with | Read More »
Gerry Mander wins re-election!
Anyone who pays passing attention to politics understands the concept of gerrymandering to benefit one party at the expense of the other. However I doubt that many of us fully appreciate what devastating results can be obtained by an exceptionally successful gerrymander. Yesterday here in Virginia all 40 State Senate seats were “contested” under the new district lines drawn up by the Democrat controlled body. | Read More »
Why Governor Perry is still likely to be nominated.
Numerous preemptive obituaries are being written for Governor Rick Perry’s campaign. These efforts are premature because they fail to understand and appreciate the fickle winds of political fortune. Governor Perry has substantial political assets that make him a potent candidate and that will give him another chance to prove himself to Republican voters. Each candidate brings their own set of positives and negatives to the | Read More »
In defense of Herman Cain
While I believe that Herman Cain made a real hash of things with his remarks to Piers Morgan about abortion, after watching the interview multiple times I now believe that the context modifies his words in a way most people are failing to understand or choosing to ignore. By example, when Newt Gingrich uttered his infamous line about “right-wing social engineering” conservatives of all stripes | Read More »
Romney loses his cool, Cain loses his way
The battle for the GOP presidential nomination was greatly clarified in recent days in the wake of the Las Vegas debate and candidate statements in various interviews. The Las Vegas debate showcased yet another flaw in Mitt Romney’s make up: He has a glass jaw. If this were a boxing match he’d still be on the canvas. His hysterical over-reaction to Rick Perry regarding Lawngate | Read More »
My letter from Mitt
I got my very own personal letter from Mitt Romney today. Its signed with an auto-pen and everything! I notice that the mailer was paid for by “Romney for President Inc.” I don’t recall incorporated status for other campaigns. The color picture of Mitt is odd in that he is looking off camera. Shouldn’t he be looking directly at the camera so as to make | Read More »
Down with 999, I only support Good Taxes
Being a good conservative I support the adoption and implementation of good taxes that promote growth in our economy, taxes that lead to more prosperity for our people, and taxes that cannot be raised too high by Congress. There, I feel better now. The Sun is shining and Life is good! But wait…there’s a small problem………there are no such “good taxes” known to exist. All | Read More »
