Disclaimer: This post is complete fluff and amusement. Back in the old days of Usenet (prior to the Great Renaming) there was a gag pulled in the net.singles newsgroup where they took posts to the group and ran them through a Markov chain generator to create semi-coherent posts that they posted under the name of Mark V. Shaney. The resulting ramblings amused and bemused many. | Read More »
Macon, GA cop shoots 10-month-old puppy in the head, after being asked not to– twice
Not all governmental evil comes out of Washington, D.C. Sometimes it’s as nearby as your local police department. This past Sunday, Anna “Chrissy” Music-Peed, of Macon, GA, found this out the hard way. The story from policestateusa.com: On September 22, Anna “Chrissy” Music-Peed, of Macon, GA, drove to the Jones County Sheriff’s Department to request an officer come to and investigate a vehicle that had | Read More »
Quinnipiac poll claims Obama over 50 percent in OH, FL, PA — but let’s look at the instant replay
Quinnipiac University has a new poll out of Ohio, Florida, and Pennsylvania: President Barack Obama hits the magic 50 percent mark against Gov. Mitt Romney among likely voters in Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania, with wide support for his plan to hike federal income taxes on upper-income voters, according to a Quinnipiac University/ CBS News/New York Times Swing State Poll released today. This is the first | Read More »
We can’t rely on the courts to clean up our mess for us
In case you just woke up, the Supreme Court upheld ObamaCare 5-4. What does this tell us? The courts aren’t going to rescue this country from its own stupidity, it’s a job we have to do for ourselves. Even if Mitt Romney isn’t a favorite of yours (he sure isn’t one of mine), we need a Republican President and a Republican Congress that we can | Read More »
Romney and his supporters need to answer this, if he wants support from the Base
I keep seeing Romney supporters saying how we need to get behind and support Romney so we can defeat Obama in the general election. The problem I’m seeing is that pretty much it’s the only reason they’re giving, and while it’s a respectable reason, it’s not a motivating reason. Romney has spent the entire primary season burning his bridges with the Base, and it’s our | Read More »
Why conservatives can’t trust Mitt Romney: the Etch-A-Sketch analogy
While I realize many books could be written with the subject I’ve chosen here, I’m referring to one thing in particular. It’s a sad, sad day when I’m forced to agree with the likes of whine factories like thinkprogress when it comes to the fellow that will likely be our nominee, Mitt Romney. His communications director just handed our opponents a dagger with which to | Read More »
Call it a contested convention, not a brokered convention
Peggy Noonan can be hit or miss with her writings, but on this item she’s got it exactly right: I keep thinking of what a sage old pol, a veteran former GOP governor, said two weeks ago. He turned to me in conversation and said, “By the way, don’t call it a brokered convention. That’s what the media and the Democrats will call it because | Read More »
I will vote for the Republican nominee in the 2012 Presidential Election. Will you?
I will vote for Rick Perry in the general election if he is the Republican nominee for President. I will vote for Newt Gingrich in the general election if he is the Republican nominee for President. I will vote for Mitt Romney in the general election if he is the Republican nominee for President. I will of course vote for Herman Cain in the general | Read More »
Did Marco Rubio’s chief of staff help push the Florida primary earlier in order to benefit Mitt Romney?
The Other McCain is reporting that Cesar Conda, Marco Rubio’s senatorial chief of staff who worked for the Mitt Romney 2008 campaign, was a “major force” in pushing for Florida to move up its 2012 Presidential primary to January 31. An earlier primary would shorten the campaign schedule and thus help the better-funded campaigns, of which Romney’s is certainly the best-funded. This is some serious | Read More »
9/11: We win
I apologize for the shortness of this diary, but I don’t really need to say any more than this: It’s 10 years after 9/11, we’ve had no more attacks of any significance, and Osama bin Laden is dead. We win.
