“Jews Against Obama & Ahmadinejad.”
The Obama campaign got what it asked for. Organizers for the anti-Iran rally at the United Nations booted Governor Palin from speaking after Obama operatives threatened the tax-exempt status of the organization responsible for the rally. She was booted because the Obama camp did not want her speaking without an Obama surrogate able to speak and the Obama camp did not want an Obama surrogate | Read More »
Obama Campaign Tied to Nasty Anti-Palin Smears
If you haven’t read this yet get over to the Jawa Report. This is big news that the media is not covering. In a nutshell: the Jawa Report has been able to tie anti-Palin attacks to a David Axelrod astroturfing campaign. The attacks make all sorts of unfounded accusations against Palin. At midnight last night, the Jawa Report broke the story and it sent Obama | Read More »
Is Barack Obama Ashamed of Joe Biden?
Jeff Emanuel pointed this out right after the Palin pick. Now that both campaigns have had some time to settle, rework websites, etc., I thought it would be worth re-examining how the campaigns are treating the Veep picks. It looks very much like Barack Obama is ashamed of or embarrassed by Joe Biden. Just look at the Obama website compared to the McCain website. On | Read More »
For Your Own Sake, Stop the Jesus to Obama Comparisons
Being a partisan, I want to win this election. And I think you lefties have come upon a winning strategy to help us do it. The whole “Jesus is to Obama as Pontius Pilate is to Sarah Palin” analogy will do nothing but inflame the senses of the evangelical community, others who recognize the offensiveness of the statement, and the edge of voters needed to | Read More »
“She is most definitely a Christian”
Just watch the opening of this Nightline piece: Now, say in a fine British accent, “She is most definitely a Christian. Ask yourself what the hell that has to do with anything under the sun.
Palin Is Not Backing Off Her “Task From God” Statement. The Media Is Because The Media Got It Wrong.
This is a silly headline from the Politico. Jonathan Martin’s title is “Palin backs off “task from God” statement.” It looks to me like the media is backing off. As characterized by the media, Palin allegedly said the troops to Iraq were on a “task from God.” But that is not what Palin said. And she is not backing off what she said. She is | Read More »
Does Barack Obama Still Support the Bridge to Nowhere?
Barack Obama’s campaign claims Governor Palin has flip-flopped on the Bridge to Nowhere. Where does Barack Obama stand on the bridge? Governor Palin changed her mind and told Washington “thanks, but no thanks” to the bridge. Barack Obama voted to fund the Bridge to Nowhere. So does Barack Obama still support the Bridge to Nowhere? Or has Obama changed his mind to now oppose the | Read More »
Lucius Quinctius Cincinnatus Is Dead. The Media Killed Him.
“It is quite telling that the media think Barack Obama’s Presidential campaign gives him better experience than Governor Palin’s political career. It also shows these doyens of politics have an illiterate understanding of the internal political process.” Twice, with Rome under threat, the Senate named Cincinnatus dictator. Both times he saved Rome, took off his toga, and went back to his fields. The story of | Read More »

The Word Clouds
It is not too terribly difficult to find out what the message is of this convention. In two words, it is “John McCain”. Here is Sarah Palin’s word cloud from last night. Fred’s, Joe’s, Huck’s, Mitt’s, and Rudy’s are all below the fold. Note that the word “Obama” appeared only once in Sarah Palin’s speech.
Just how awesome is the Palin pick? Rush Limbaugh is now calling John McCain “John McBrilliant”.
BREAKING: Sarah Palin “Winged” Her Speech Because of “Broken” Teleprompter
Halfway through Sarah Palin’s speech tonight at the RNC, people following the speech noticed she was deviating from the prepared text.

Sarah Palin. An Amazing, Historic, Epic Win.
Sarah Palin took to the podium tonight and gave the speech of a lifetime, perhaps the best nationally broadcast political introduction in the convention history, and a knock out blow to the Obama-Biden campaign and their pals in the media. Governor Palin’s performance was phenomenal. It was amazing to be inside the XCEL Center listening, seeing the crowd’s reaction, and seeing Governor Palin take the | Read More »
I have a question for Campbell Brown
Campbell, you are missing the point. It’s not just that you were pestering the McCain campaign about the National Guard in a clear effort to bait and trap the campaign when you already had the information and could report it instead of toying with the campaign. It’s that you did this after days and days of recounting, with delicious zeal, the Bristol Palin story — | Read More »

Another Media Generated Lie
This evening the media breathlessly reported that Governor Palin did not show up for a pro-life event at the Crowne Plaza in St. Paul, MN. “She’s on lock down,” one reporter said on Fox. She’s in hiding, others have said. “You know,” some of the talking heads are saying in their Mr. Serious tone, “she may not last the week.” Folks, there was a scheduling | Read More »
A Media Generated Lie
Here at the convention, the story is how much the media is out to get Sarah Palin. The stories that are circulating: McCain did not properly vet her. She’s going to be tossed within 72 hours. The baby stuff caught McCain off guard These are all media generated lies. These stories are not coming from the McCain campaign. They are not generated from here. The | Read More »
My Response to Ben Smith’s Response To Me
You can see his response here. He claims my headline is misleading because I identify “Democrats” as releasing the information. if he knows that Democrats released it, he has better sources than I do.

BREAKING: Democrats Release Sarah Palin’s Social Security Number
The Politico has received an opposition research file from the Alaska Democrats. You can read it in PDF here. In the file, the Democrats have released Sarah Palin’s social security number minus the last four digits. Also tied to the information are her various home addresses. Back in 2005, Democrats used Michael Steele’s social security number to get his credit record. It is atrocious that | Read More »
