“Suspicious” fire damages Sarah Palin’s church
Pastor Larry Kroon says a fire broke out Friday night at the Wasilla Bible Church while a small group of women were there working on crafts. Thanks to the church’s fire alarm, they were able to safely leave the building, and the sprinkler system prevented the fire from spreading beyond offices and classrooms.
Things are tough all over
Sam Fox has a Long Island auto dealership which sells Cadillacs, Saabs and Hummers. Let me rephrase that – those are the brands his dealership is authorized to sell. He’s not selling many vehicles these days. You don’t have to try to imagine his frustration because he has let it be known. Mr. Fox has written an op-ed which appears in today’s edition of the | Read More »
The gang that couldn’t shoot straight
No, I’m not talking about the bunch of Corruptocrats in Chicago (this time, at least), but the bunch of mostly Republicans who mismanaged the McCain campain. According to reports here and here from Fox5 in Washington, DC, the station purchased two Blackberry units from the McCain campaign. The organization had announced in an e-mail to staffers that it was selling off computers, office equipment and | Read More »
Rahmbo can’t stand the heat
Obama chief of staff Rahm Emmanuel, the object of increased media attention (see here and here), complained this morning that he wouldn’t go to his job in the transition team office. Emmanuel said he was staying inside the house to duck the gaggle of reporters anxious to ask him if he had contact with disgraced Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich, a Democrat, about the Senate seat vacated by Barack | Read More »
The Fallout Thickens…
From Pejman Yousefzadeh we learn that in the heat of the Blagogate scandal, President-elect Barack Obama’s chief of staff Rahm Emmanuel was asked by reporters Thursday if he was the Obama advisor named in the criminal complaint against Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D-IL):
Remember when conservatives were winning?
Remember when conservatives were conservatives? In the Reagan years, the time of the only conservative American president in the modern era, one was a conservative, not a fiscon, neocon, socon, paleocon or any other kind of con. In fact, “con” was used by liberals as a term of contempt for conservatives, never by conservatives in self-reference. How times have changed. Some of the issues Ronald | Read More »
Obama lied? You decide.
What did the president-elect know, and when did he stop knowing it? Yesterday, the Lightworker attempted to distance himself from his good buddy Gov. Rod Blagojevich (D-IL) in familiar Obama fashion – by tossing the accused crook under the bus: “Obviously like the rest of the people of Illinois I am saddened and sobered by the news that came out of the US attorney’s office | Read More »
Palin: Obama can learn from gas pipeline deal
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, in an interview with Canadian television, said today that she is working to “grow the relationship” that Alaska has with Canada and called on president-elect Barack Obama to “see the light” and strengthen ties between the United States and its northern neighbor. The former Republican vice-presidential candidate was interviewed on the CTV program “Canada AM” and suggested that Obama should take | Read More »
Billions and billions, but it’s all green
President-elect Barack Obama and the Democrats seem to believe that they can spend their way out of the current economic slump. Their stimulus plan for spreading the wealth around has a $700 Billion price tag, but that’s just a familiar number which is likely to be inflated before they are done tinkering with it. With the taxpayer’s money already committed to bailing out financial institutions, | Read More »
The curiosity meme and “moose murder”
A recent GSP4P post addressed the “polarizing” meme. It’s just one of several memes used to attack Sarah Palin. These memes generally originate as Democrat Party talking points, get spread all over the leftosphere by Palin-hating bloggers, get picked up by the drive-by media and are hammered out incessantly by all of the usual suspects. Another popular anti-Palin meme is the one which claims that | Read More »
The Audacity of Patience
The hard left, I must say, has shown remarkable patience in light of the middle ground the Obama Administration-In-Waiting has cautiously taken since election day. Oh, there’s been some grumbling about all the Clintonistas the O-Team is stocking the executive branch with, The One’s realization that perhaps it might be best to let the Bush tax cuts simply expire rather than repeal them during a | Read More »
Quote of the Day, 2 Dec 08
Via, appropriately, Stuck on Stupid: “My staff tells me not to say this, but I’m going to say it anyway. In the summer because of the heat and high humidity, you could literally smell the tourists coming into the Capitol… We have many bathrooms here, as you can see.” The Majority Leader’s regard for “The Great Unwashed” is downright Jeffersonian, LOL! – JP
Palin’s Path Is Not Through Senate
The drive-by media is at it again – Politico, in this instance, fanning the embers of resentment between Governor Sarah Palin and Senator Lisa Murkowski, both of Alaska, and hoping to start a fire. Since Sarah defeated Frank Murkowski, the senator’s father, on her way to the governor’s mansion, there has been some bad blood between Palin and the Murkowski family. When asked in an | Read More »
Sarah Barnstorms Georgia for Saxby (Updated)
Sarah Palin is on a barnstorming tour of the state of Georgia today, campaigning for fellow Republican Saxby Chambliss. The incumbant senator faces a runoff election tomorrow against challenger Jim Martin, a Democrat. With votes still being recounted in the Minnesota senate contest between Al Franken and Norm Coleman, the outcome of Tuesday’s Georgia runoff could determine the size of the Democrats’ majority in the | Read More »
Bad Doug. No Diplomatic Bone.
In a November 23, blog entry for the Jesuit’s America Magazine, Michael Sean Winters argued that law professor Douglas Kmiec would be the “perfect person” to represent the Obama Administration as the U.S. Ambassador to the Vatican.
No wonder the GOP is on its knees
If Curly Haugland is typical of his fellow RNC members, that would go a long way toward explaining why the Republican Party is in such a mess. Haugland recently sent an e-mail to former Lt. Governor Michael Steele of Maryland asking Steele to give up his quest for the RNC’s chairmanship. The Washington Times printed portions of the e-mail in a story by Ralph Hallow | Read More »
PACs 4 Palin
Sarah Palin has some new blessings to be thankful for over the Thanksgiving holidays. Earlier this week, the America Deserves Better PAC uveiled its promised television ad saying “thank you” to Alaska’s governor. Basically, its a video thank-you note, with a number or ordinary-looking folks offering their thanks to Palin for all she’s done. Nice sentiments, but not very imaginative production techniques. It comes in | Read More »
Sarah to campaign for Saxby
Alaska Governor Sarah Palin will take time off from her work of preparing the operating and general FY09 budgets for her state (due December 10) and travel to Georgia to campaign with Saxby Chambliss, according to the incumbent Senator.
I’m a car guy. Always have been. I’ve lived, breathed and dreamed about things automotive for almost all of my life. Years before I even reached the legal age to get a learner’s permit, I was digesting car books from cover to cover, building scale-model cars from kits and lusting after a ’49 Mercury coupe just like the one James Dean drove in “Rebel Without | Read More »
