    MSDNC Claims It Has No Bias

    MSDNC has defended its coverage of the Democratic Convention as not partisan. hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha.MSNBC is as objective as RedState, but less professional.“MSNBC does not have an ideology,” Griffin said. “We hire smart people who are passionate about their love of politics and love of news.” “Do I want them to have squabbles?” Griffin asked. “No. But I understand they’re human.” This from the guy who just | Read More »

    A GOP Convention Game Plan

    OK, folks, this is it. The Dem convention is already a bust. Do not, I repeat, do not, listen to any positive analysis from the MSM that says otherwise. There is no excitement, no personality.

    Note to the McCain Camp

    Romney is crashing in InTrade and Kay Bailey Hutchison is going up.I’ll remind you all she is pro-choice and I’ll tell you all I will puke on my keyboard if she is the pick and probably will cease being excited about your campaign. She’ll be a good governor. She is not an inspiring Veep Pick.And I speak for a large, large number of Republicans.That is | Read More »

    Brass Knuckles

    Barack Obama spits out what sounds like a threat by saying “they don’t know who they’re dealing with”.I hope we do know who we’re dealing with. From Time, The Page: Jim Messina, Obama campaign’s chief of staff, tells Iowa Democrats: “I’m not the public speaker in the group, so we’ll try this.” Of Arizona, says: “If Senator McCain continues to be the schmuck he’s being, | Read More »

    LA Times:Biden son, brother invested with firm that lobied for him

    Investigative reporters Chuck Neubauer and Tom Hamburger:”When Joe Biden’s brother and son wanted to buy a hedge fund company two years ago, they turned for financing to a law firm that had lobbied the Delaware senator’s office on an important piece of business in Congress — and in fact had just benefited from his vote.The firm promised James and Hunter Biden that it would invest | Read More »

    Drudge is reporting McCain has decided on a VP

    I’m sure the pick has been made for several days and was cemented soon after Obama announced his pick. They have had to make travel arrangements for whoever it was.

    Barack Obama is on Al Gore’s “Love Train”

Saturday, September 25 of that year was the final day of the Democratic National Committee under National Chairman Joe Andrew and General Chairman (and Philadelphia Mayor) Ed Rendell.

    Is Obama’s Ego Infinite Or Merely Unimited?

    It is not enough for Barak to tell a room full of democrats in the Capitol that he is the new Messiah. He must not just tell the millions on TV.

I DO NOT say that the Clintons, or that Hillary herself, are/is racist, but to use the following line in her DNC speech when everyone is scrutinizing whether she will support Obama, and everyone is scrutinizing her phraseology in doing so, is, at minimum, a severe lapse in judgment: “And along the | Read More »

    New Game: Where’s the Flag

    Despite Soft Polls in US, Bloomberg News Tells us Germans ‘Overwhelmingly Favor Obama’

    On August 25 Patrick Donahue of Bloomberg breathlessly informed us that a recent poll showed that Germans love Barack Obama.
