Wow! Could you believe those Standing Ovations for Romney? Oh, wait, er…. I mean Gingrich?
Can we get serious here for a second? Mitt Romney is the most uninspiring, milquetoast “front runner” for a major Party Nomination I’ve ever witnessed in my adulthood. And that includes Micheal Dukakis. He inspires no one. He creates no “buzz”. He has no bandwagon, beyond the golf-cart of the political professionals, and the governing elites. Everywhere he goes, his main line of defense is, | Read More »
Ring the Bells! Have a Party! The Unemployment Rate is 8.6%!!
All Right! Whoo-Hoo! It’s Recovery Winter! According to the Labor Department (yes, that’s right: Obama’s Labor Department!) is shouting from the Mountaintops that we’ve added 140,000 jobs in November. Cool. I mean, wow… I’m all tingly. When numbers like this pop up, we tend to think of a really big stadium, jammed with 140,000 people, each one celebrating their newly-found gainful employment. Except… There are | Read More »
The President’s Cabinet, February, 2013:
Who we as Republicans elect to the Presidency is important. Who the President appoints to their cabinet is just as important. Here are some suggestions to animate the discussion… Secretary of State: John Bolton Secretary of the Treasury: Steve Wynn Attorney General: Kenneth Cuccinelli Secretary of Defense: Lt. Col. Oliver North Secretary of the Interior: John S. Walton Secretary of Energy: Sarah Palin Secretary of | Read More »
If Rush Limbaugh can resurrect AM Radio, he can resurrect CBS News!
AM Radio used to be the home of static and Saturday morning recipe shows. It was the place you could hear (faintly) Elanor Rigby for the three-millionth time. You could catch your hometown high school football team if you weren’t more than five hundred yards from the transmitter. They tried to fix AM radio with some contrivance called “AM Stereo”, as if hearing a fade | Read More »
Join the Military, and Have a Gay Old Time!
One political party, one world view, and one President have wrought a monumental disaster on the mighty Armed Forces of the United States of America. I only WISH these same wretches had been as focused on winning wars, providing for our wounded warriors, getting the absolute best materiel and armaments for our soldiers on the battlefield, as they were focused on all their stupid, trifling | Read More »
Barack Obama: The Cardboard Standee President.
Can I be candid for a moment? Barack Obama is the first President in my lifetime to have had the luxury of some twenty-four months in office, and yet have no need to exhibit even the slightest bit of leadership… On anything . He’s deferred tough decisions regarding the budget deficit to a "blue-ribbon" commission. He let Nancy Pelosi and her gang of Merry Pranksters | Read More »
Can we PLEASE extend “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” to the IRS??
I simply love all the strutting around, the political preening, the blabbering and moral indignation being slathered on like buttah from the Great Seers and the Senators regarding the "repeal" of "Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell". Ignoring for the moment that these self-same Divas of the Defense Department are the same ones whose skivvies get all twisted and start screeching that NO federal statute or law | Read More »
Thank God and Grayhound, She’s Gone!
Okay–; All morning long, I’ve hear the refrains of Roy Clark tumbling around my brain-pan: I’ve made a small fortune, and you’ve squandered it all… You’ve shamed me till I feel about one inch tall. But I thought I loved you, and I hoped you would change… So, I gritted my teeth, and didn’t complain …Thank God and Grayhound, She’s Gone! Now, I know the | Read More »
What Good is a 290-Yard Drive, if You Still 3-Putt?
Hold on, hold on. The title here is what is known in the writing biz as a “metaphor”. Polling, while being more of an exacting art than it was a generation ago, is really nothing more than guesswork– albeit, guesswork based on the inexactitude of earlier guesses. My sense (that, and $1.75 will get you a cup of coffee at McDonald’s) is that the Republicans | Read More »
Alright, Illinois: Here’s What You Do for Our Warriors…
You pack up several thousand absentee ballots, for the jurisdictions from which your soldiers hail, ship them via Second Day FedEx to Afghanistan and Iraq, and you mark them "Urgent". You then inform CentCom that you screwed up getting ballots off to our fighting men and women in time, and that you would appreciate their help in making sure these folks get the ballots they | Read More »
