    Oh, the Hypocrisy!

    While trying not to laugh at Obama’s righteous indignation over the exorbitant bonuses paid out to Wall Street executives this month, I noticed a very curious, though not surprising irony. Now, don’t misunderstand. I don’t particularly like the fact that these companies, which have received billions of dollars in federal bailout money, are paying out ridiculous bonuses to their employees. In light of the fact | Read More »

    Sarah! and Saxby

    I had heard from someone on Saxby’s staff last week that the campaign was working on getting Governor Sarah Palin down to Georgia to help get voters fired up over the run-off. Well, according to the Telegraph, Sarah! has agreed to come to the rescue. The closest she’ll get to Macon is Perry – chosen, I suppose, so that the Ag Center can be used | Read More »

    Wishful Thinking

    More proof that Obama is the political messiah that his worshippers think him to be: He is apparently going to demonstrate that he is able to create, from nothing, a brand new species of supporter for his faltering campaign. How will he accomplish this unprecedented feat? Easy. By producing thousands of yard signs, bumper stickers, and buttons, appropriately labelled for said species of supporter. Think | Read More »

    A Guide to Celebrity Strays

    Thank goodness for Matt Damon. If he hadn’t had the courage to go on national television and talk about things that he is completely unqualified to discuss, some of us might have made the fatal mistake of actually voting for McCain-Palin. But now, thankfully, he has made it known that he “knows nothing about” Sarah Palin. What would we do without celebrities? (By now you | Read More »

    It’s Personal

    Barack Obama: “Look, I got two daughters — 9 years old and 6 years old,” he said. “I am going to teach them first about values and morals, but if they make a mistake, I don’t want them punished with a baby.” Such calculation. Note the extremely vague, but obligatory reference to “values and morals”, which is supposed to convince us that he is in | Read More »

    Palin and The Media

    As issues at the office have kept me away from the blogosphere for the last week or so, I’ve been literally itching to get back to the keyboard and talk about what’s going on in the presidential race. The treatment of Governor Palin by the mainstream press has been nothing short of dispicable, to say nothing of the treatment she’s getting from our illustrious opponents | Read More »

    The Obama Speech

    What an inspiring, well-delivered articulation of Jimmy Carter’s policies. Obama continues to impress with his ability to make college kids and celebrities weep with eloquent references to socialist and populist policies that they think the rest of America will embrace now that they have a handsome, charismatic “framer” for their ideas. And let’s not forget the media – they were cheering just as loudly as | Read More »

    Rick Warren Goes to Washington

    I wrote a while back about the two presidential candidates’ upcoming appearance at Saddleback. In that post, I wondered whether Rick Warren would have the courage to ask difficult questions of the two candidates, especially concerning Obama’s stance on abortion. Well, it looks like I’m not the only one wondering about these things. Hunter’s open letter to Rick Warren, challenging him to force Obama to | Read More »

    Where is Jim Marshall?

    Promoted from the diaries by Erick. I’m a little confused. Our allegedly conservative Democrat congressman, Jim Marshall, claims to support exploration for domestic energy sources. And yet, we’re now into the second week of the energy protest in the House, led by two of our truly conservative Georgia congressmen, and Rep. Marshall is still on vacation. Imagine the incredible message that would be sent to | Read More »

    Another Flip from the Flop

    I awoke Sunday morning to the news that the Democrat party’s flop has flipped yet again, and I knew it was going to be a good week. The look on his face as he stuttered his way through yet another tail-tucked admission of defeat to conservatism was utterly priceless. And so, it is with great satisfaction, that we add offshore drilling to the ever growing | Read More »
