Astroturf USA: A Tea Party Leader’s Look At The Coffee Party USA “Schism”
While reading Politico the yesterday, I was surprised to find an article about a schism that has taken place within the Coffee Party USA camp founded by Annabel Park. And here I thought the Astroturf USA’s cup had run dry; guess I was wrong. You can view the schism article here. It is today’s article about yesterday’s article that just made me shake my head | Read More »
Land of Lincoln or Land of the Lost?
Exactly what has Illinois become? In the immortal words of Obi-Wan in Star Wars: Obi-Wan: Mos Eisley spaceport: You will never find a more wretched hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.” Though Illinois is obviously no spaceport (though our state debt and deficit is out of this world), it seems to have become the Mos Eisley Cantina bar of the left.

Liberals Still Don’t Understand The Tea Parties
Despite taking historic losses in the last midterm elections and being the focus of countless protests leading up to the midterms, the liberals still don’t understand what the Tea Parties are. I enter into evidence the possibility of a “Tequila Party“. It would seem Latino leaders are not happy with the Democrats not doing enough to push through Dream Act III and are discussing about | Read More »
Hooverites Want More Taxes
A group of millionaires have made headlines recently requesting Congress to raise taxes on them. Many are Democrat donors including such leftist darlings as Ben and Jerry’s founder Ben Cohen. These self-sacrificers say that it is vital to the economy and the nation’s financial help that Congress raise their taxes. The first question that comes to my mind is why does it take government impetus | Read More »
New Boss Same As The Old Boss?
Saul Anuzis announced his intention to run against Michael Steele for RNC Chair the other day. Part of Anuzis’ campaign for RNC Chair centers around wanting to raise money for a “fully funded Victory program” to ensure that the Republicans win the close races that we didn’t win this year. First, I would like to say that I am not defending Michael Steele in this | Read More »
What Is It About Years Ending In Zero?

Political Correctness Is Dead
This morning it was announced that Juan Williams had been fired from NPR for his comments the previous night on the O’Reilly Factor regarding Muslims. Punishment was swift from the left because Williams had spoken out against their ideals of multiculturalism and political correctness. I don’t always agree with Juan Williams, but he’s a straight shooter and a wonderful commentator. All day, news channels have | Read More »

The Desperation of Alexi Giannoulias Become Even More Desperate By Playing The Race Card Against Mark Kirk
Mark Kirk was recently secretly recorded talking about watching out for possible voter fraud in Chicago and Rockford on November 2nd. Like it or not, it is a valid argument considering Illinois’ interesting voting past. The terms “vote early and vote often” and “the dead vote” didn’t come into everyday parlance from out of the blue. Just off hand, will the secret recorder be prosecuted | Read More »
“Desperation” – A New Cologne Brought To You By Alexi Giannoulias
The Senate race in Illinois has been thoroughly brutal with both Mark Kirk and Alexi Giannoulias hitting each other as often as possible about each others’ record. However, I feel the tide might be turning towards Kirk with less than a month to go to November 2nd. Kirk has a money lead with $3.9 million cash on hand versus $1 million cash on hand for | Read More »
Ronald Reagan Need Not Apply?
In an interview on CNN, soon to be retired (because he lost his primary re-election bid) Rep. Bob Inglis (R-SC) showed that he still doesn’t get it regarding the Tea Parties: “I think this would be a tough time for Ronald Reagan and Jack Kemp,” Inglis added. “They were optimists that believe in America. Right now, unfortunately, conservatism is being presented with a voice of | Read More »
