Obamabots! Why aren’t you euthanizing your parents?

    Yoohooooo! Yoohoooooooo! Uh, Mr. Obama, where are YOUR medical records? Don’t peak through the blinds, answer the door and show us YOUR medical records. [knock knock] Is this thing on? Mr. Obama, where are YOUR medical records. Hmmm. No response. Hey Barack, how does John McCain distract America from real issues, but your smear campaign over him conquering Cancer, doesn’t divert America from real issues? | Read More »

    The Sunday Morning Talk Shows: The Review

    PREFACE: On FOX News Sunday, Claire McCaskill agreed with an Obama commercial which defines John McCain as an unstable, old man, saying that he has been erratic lately. Joe Lieberman, scoffing at Obama’s lead in the polls, pointed out that the Gore/Lieberman ticket had been trailing by 6-points with two-weeks left in 2000 and managed to win that election. At least the popular vote. Karl | Read More »

    For all you people who think Scott Rasmussen is the HOLY GRAIL!!

    http://tinyurl.com/474wvb This brings me to Rasmussen. In an earlier article, I rather harshly said that Rasmussen was in it for the money.

    Myth: Obama would cut taxes…

    If Sarah Palin reads the Wall Street Journal, she probably saw this article. WSJ – Their Fair Share Someone needs to answer (and disprove) Brocko Bama’s claim that 95% of Omericans will receive a tac cut if he is elected president. Using the data published in the Journal’s article, the numbers don’t add-up. Nearly 50% of people pay no income taxes, so how can they | Read More »

    “O – A Lonely Marxist Zero”

    This is a gift. I was visiting with friends here today in Tallinn, and they insisted on a trip to the beautiful new art museum on the edge of town.

At one point, we wandered up to the top floor to look for the exhibit known as the “WC.” | Read More »

    Clear thinking, intelligent voting requires research into the actions of our politicians, not just following what they say. This statement holds true more this year than any other.

    It’s the economy stupid (again)

    Pulling Out of Michigan Is Just McCain’s Latest Great Lake Mistake

    What Part Of “Shall Not Be Infringed” Don’t You Understand, Senator?

    In her brief time in the national spotlight, Republican Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin, if nothing else, has rejuvenated the debate in this country regarding certain fundamental values.

    Obama “I haven’t talked to the guy in a year and a half”

    This was his answer on O’Reilly when he interviewed with him couple weeks ago “I haven’t talke to the guy in a year and a half”. So he stopped talking to him right after he started to campaign.

    What Obama said about Ayers on O’Reilly…

    Obama said about Ayers… “I haven’t talked to that guy in a year and a half”. Which means he stopped talking to him right when his campaign started, or maybe even a little after.

    Palin’s Obama-Ayers statement stopped one step short of being effective

    **As some of you know, I have been having an absolute hissy fit because Obama got through a bazillion interviews without a single questioner forcing him to admit he [Obama] referred to Bill Ayers as a friend.
