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 »

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.

There is an industry that just recalled a half a billion eggs for salmonella contamination! The problem is a hazard to the nation’s health!

Giannoulias/Durbin/Davis = Don’t Let The Law Get In Your Way
Picture this scene… If the special election “costs taxpayers a dime, it’s probably a waste of money,” added Giannoulias, flanked by fellow Illinois Democrats U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin and U.S. Rep. Danny Davis at a campaign news conference on Chicago’s West Side to talk about jobs. Giannoulias made this statement despite a federal judge ruling that then Gov. Blago’s appointment of Roland Burris was illegal | Read More »

Free Speech? Only If You Speak The Language Of The Left
Universities are supposed to be areas where there is open debate and free speech is prized…unless you deviate from the leftist ideology. From the CarmiTimes.com: The University of Illinois has fired an adjunct professor who taught courses on Catholicism after a student accused the instructor of engaging in hate speech by saying he agrees with the church’s teaching that homosexual sex is immoral. The professor, | Read More »
