A Bad Weekend for the Constitution
Two pundits, one on the Left and one on the Right (sorta, kinda, almost), each wrote an attack on the Constitution. If this is what we have to look forward to, the future is pretty dismal from a constitutional perspective. The leftist, Gail Collins , asks George Bush to resign, and Cheney, too, of course, to allow Nancy Pelosi, and therefore Barak Obama, to assume | Read More »
Ohio, the Venezuela of the Midwest
“A certain amount of corruption is inevitable…” So said Captain Tom Pickett, in The Last Man Standing. Not so memorable a movie, perhaps, but Pickett certainly understood human nature. It is certainly understandable in politics. The conviction of Sen. Ted Stevens is not a surprise because we know that such things happen. And we believe, eventually, truth will win out and justice will be done. | Read More »
How about some campaign ads?
Joe the Plumber under attack Picture of Joe the Plumber Sound bite: McCain to Chris Wallace: “Where are we in America where a candidate for president comes to a person’s driveway, he asks him a question, doesn’t like the answer, and all of a sudden he’s savaged by the candidate’s people? Savaged by them. Here’s a guy who’s a private citizen.” Voice over: “As bad | Read More »
Fox News is reporting that SCOTUS has agreed with Brunner in Ohio
http://www.foxnews.com/?CMP=KNC-G-Fox&HBXPK=foxnews&HBX_OU=50&gclid=COaXrJDTrpYCFRs-awoduhYbLQ See the “Breaking News” headline. Dang. I hope I read something wrong.
Once again, David Brooks plays conservatives for chumps
http://www.nytimes.com/2008/10/10/opinion/10brooks.html?_r=1&oref=slogin David Brooks, Palin hater, former conservative, has diagnosed the true infection that resulted in the cancer of Palin: anti-intellectualism. Conservatives just aren’t smart enough to govern. “The nation is divided between the wholesome Joe Sixpacks in the heartland and the oversophisticated, overeducated, oversecularized denizens of the coasts.” At least he admits one important fact: “Conservatives are as rare in elite universities and the mainstream | Read More »
70 million people watched Palin/Biden
That’s according to Nielson: http://blog.nielsen.com/nielsenwire/media_entertainment/699-million-watched-biden-and-palin’s-vp-debate/ Okay, it was only 69.9 mill. Sue me. If Republicans win this election, thank Sarah Palin.
Barney Frank just stepped up to defend Pelosi
She was asked about her stupid comments about Republicans and how her mouth hurt the passage of the bailout. Barney took the question for her. Can someone point out the stupidity of slandering the Administration and Republicans with 8 years of failure, but from the other side of your mouth saying that everyone has to get behind the Administration’s bill? Can the House Republicans step | Read More »
It’s time for Republican TV ads on the bailout
The fact that the Democrats want to use 20% of the profits from the bailout funds subsidize the corruption of ACORN will not make the pages of the NYT, WAPO, or even the Dallas Morning News. Heck, you can’t even find the fact that ACORN is a criminal organization dedicated to subverting the political process by illegally creating voters. And you sure ain’t gonna find | Read More »
George Will may be too reckless to be a journalist
In today’s Washington Post, George Will wrote that John McCain “is behaving like a flustered rookie playing in a league too high.” http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2008/09/22/AR2008092202583.html?referrer=emailarticle Will’s point is that McCain’s attack on SEC Chairman, Chris Cox, was “false and deeply unfair,” and indicates that McCain doesn’t understand what is happening on Wall Street. While Cox’s role in the problem can be debated, it is a stretch to | Read More »
A McCain campaign promise I would like to see
“My friends, the devastation on the Gulf Coast is massive. Homes and businesses have been destroyed, and will have to be rebuilt. We have to insure that the labor force that rebuilds America is American. These jobs need to be filled by honest, hard-working Americans, helping other honest, hard-working Americans. These are the fundamentals that have made America great.”
