INRE: The WikiLeaks Leaks…I’m Just Not *Feeling* It

    I am aware that most will think I am nuts, but I can’t help myself; I do not feel the outrage. If our national Security has been put at risk because it is now public knowledge that our State Department is comprised of a bunch of scumbags then I guess our National Security was already at risk – telling us what we already knew can’t | Read More »

    Mercy And Grace

    There are plenty of historical renditions about what this holiday is intended to represent; good people suffering terribly bad times who, after surviving the worst of conditions and beating the worst of odds, found themselves celebrating their salvation by indulging in the bounty reaped from the seeds their earlier labor had sown. Some died, some lived, new souls were born and God’s mercy was bestowed | Read More »

    “We, The People Of The United States…

    … in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.” Simple words, straight-forward system of checks and balances, and the means by which each of us could live our | Read More »

    Interview with Christine O’Donnell… *More* Of Her Own Words

    Today is Christine O’Donnell’s big day. It’s Chris Coons’ big day. More importantly, it’s Delaware’s big day. The people of Delaware will finally have THEIR say, now that all the pundits and so-called experts and professional pragmatists have finally been made to sit down, shut up, and watch as the will of the people unfolds. In Part I of my commentary regarding a recent conservation | Read More »

    Thanking Democrat Ambition For Giving The Win To O’Donnell In Delaware

    A friend suggested tonight, in light of the story published anonymously (and in exceedingly poor taste) about a bawdy night with Christine O’Donnell (allegedly), that Democrats just can’t help themselves. I agree. I’ll not offer the link here, in the name of good taste, but Google is your friend and it won’t be very difficult to find these allegations. More importantly, spend a little time | Read More »

    By Hook Or By Crook

    There is something about these 2010 elections that a lot of folks know, but more than a few of us don’t quite have the right words to wrap around. I have said elsewhere that we’re living in an American Reckoning… it’s down to that at this juncture. People from all walks of life are suffering, many of us are out of work altogether or, at | Read More »

    And Even STILL I Am Not Allowed To Make A Racial Slur About Our President? After THIS? AYFKM!?!?!?

    I almost don’t have words…almost: He said Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, “we can’t have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they | Read More »

    Peggy Noonan Heads Home

    'stack consoles Peggy after she sups a Tea Party reality

    I have a love – hate relationship with Peggy Noonan…there-it’s out now. During the early to middle Bush years we were like peas and carrots, Peggy and I. Mid to late years, and her anti-Iraq equivocation and left-lurches to the dark side? Not so much. Early Obama? Nope…not at all; she was | Read More »

    Christine O’Donnell…In Her Own Words

    We’ve heard it said often enough throughout this midterm campaign cycle; “elections have consequences” and “every vote counts.” I would add…”and no matter how piously they might try, experts and pundits aren’t always right.” This is because, by and large, no one can truly predict how people will react (h/t Sussex County Angel) and what they might do under the right combination of outrage, angst, | Read More »

    O’Donnell v. Coons: The People of Delaware Won

    Christine O’Donnell and Chris Coons debated tonight on the University of Delaware campus. The outcome of this debate, hosted by Delaware First Media and the University of Delaware’s Center for Political Communication, will be judged soon enough by the so-called experts in the world of politics and punditry… but for simple-minded folk such as myself it became clear early on who won tonight. The People | Read More »
