Alaskan Conservatives Need to Stand Up for Gov. Palin.
A new poll from McClatchy shows Gov. Sarah Palin’s approval rating is now at 54% this is down from nearly 90% before she was chosen as John McCain’s running mate. I am sure there are good conservatives up there in Alaska who support her and stand by her, but the effort needs to become more organized. If Gov. Palin looses re-election in 2010, her chances | Read More »
So, Mr. Brown, Radical Muslims are A-OK, but Michael Savage Isn’t?
I’m not the biggest fan of Michael Savage who currently hosts the third most popular talk radio show in the United States. He lost me when he went on about how dyslexia is fake and how people with dyslexia are just stupid. I have a mother, grandmother, brother and a sister with dyslexia and I can assure Mr. Savage that they are not stupid and | Read More »
Ignore Palin? We’ll Ignore You GOP.
The Politico has a story out today quoting Republican strategists who all say the GOP would rather just “ignore Palin.” Mike Murphy, long time friend and adviser to John McCain said, “She’s bigger in the media than in reality. Palin is the only Republican politician right now who is interesting, a little different, connected to the last campaign and related to an occasional story in the | Read More »
Let Obama Nominate A Justice!!! It Could Be a Good Thing!
Yes, I too was dismayed by the news that Justice Souter is throwing in the towel (not because I’m a Souter fan, but I’m absolutely frightened by the prospects of whom Obama could pick), but after thinking about it for a while, might Obama nominating a Supreme Court Justice be a good thing? The chance to nominate a justice is the presidents chance to leave | Read More »
Are Moderates Missing the Point?
Yes…. Do they realize that there are people on this very blog actively supportive of Rudy Guiliani for Governor of New York? Do they get that there are many California conservatives who are enthusiastic about Meg Whitman? Did they forget that the favorite candidate of many conservatives in 2008 was Mitt Romney, the moderate Republican governor of Massachusettes? Even the scourge of many conservatives, John McCain, | Read More »
This is Why We Lose Elections.
NRSC is running ads against Arlen Specter linking him to….. CONSERVATIVES. Yes, I kid you not! http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/04/30/gop-using-specters-own-campaign-ads-against-him-2/
Larry Elder for US Senate.
Former talk radio show host Larry Elder is considering a run for the U.S. Senate against Barbara Boxer. I’ve got to say, Larry would defintely be a strong choice, yes stronger than even Carly Fiorina. The state GOP wants Fiorina for the same reason it favors Meg Whitman for Governor (I’ll be on record saying I’m supporting Whitman for the Governorship) Fiorina has alot of | Read More »
“Hostile to Moderates?” Try the Other Way Around.
Arlen Specter? Good riddence, that’s all I’ve got to say about that. If he would have told us sooner I would have helped him packed his suitcase. The fact is, Specter calling himself a Republican was always quite laughable. Then I logged onto Hot Air, and I saw Olympia Snowe, saying she is worried the GOP is becoming too hostile toward moderates. Heh, try the | Read More »
Don’t Cede Ground on So-Called “Torture”
The Democrats are desperate to define the terms of this debate. I’ll admit that I was lazy on this issue, all I knew was the techniques sounded pretty bad and wasn’t happy the Bush administration used them. Upon looking into the issue, I am more convinced that these agressive interrogation technqiues are not torture by any stretch of the imagination, that we got extremely valuable | Read More »
Dear President Obama: Waterboarding Is Not Torture.
Dear President Obama, I understand you’ve got a bit of a PR problem on your hands in regards to what you call “torture,” while you promised in your campaign that you would end the so called “torture” techniques the CIA used to protect American lives during the campaign, you realize they have worked. First of all, Mr. President, let me say, I don’t believe in | Read More »
WTF!? CNN Has Photo of Neo-Nazis in Report of DHS’ “Right Wing Extremist” Essay.
In one of their grand efforts to show neutrality CNN included a picture of Neo-Nazis in their report of the Homeland Security report that was clearly singling out conservatives outraged over President Obama’s plan to “remake America” I don’t know what would be more offensive, that CNN is so deaf to Americans they don’t realize it’s not just the extremist fringe angry with the Obama | Read More »
Race Will Be Utterly Irrelevant Very Soon.
I know, I know, “not another post on race!” but I think this time you might agree with me on something: I think race is going to be uttered irrelevant in the next generation or two. The 2010 census will be the first census to allow people to claim more than one ethnicity and I think what the US Census Bereau finds is going to | Read More »
Statism Doesn’t Just Need to Loose, It Needs to Dissappear.
Statism, Socialism, Collectivism, Liberalism whatever you want to call it has failed time and time and time again. It is a failed ideology with leaders that are better spin doctors than leaders. As a conservative, I don’t just want statism to be defeated in 2010 and 2012, I want statism to cease to exsist as a viable political ideology. Can this be accomplished? Could we | Read More »
Rooting for the French and Germans at the G-20? Wierd….
I never thought that I’d be rooting for the President of France and the Chancellor of Germany to have their way over the President of the United States and the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, but I am glad that the two more conservative of the leaders are not just prodding along with the US and UK. The UK doesn’t have lot ground to | Read More »
Gov. Palin must be doing a good job….
….handling the Volcano erruptions in Alaska, because we’re not hearing about it in the media. Can anyone confirm or deny this? Isn’t it funny that the response to Kartina was highly scrutanized because of a lack of response the federal government, but the feds don’t seem to be doing anything about this? My guess is the feds don’t have to do anything; because Gov. Palin | Read More »
Real Education Reform
The left has invaded the educational system in this country and has completely destroyed it. Not only have they lowered standards, but they have raised expectations. The left has made every High School student in America believe that going to college is for everyone, and it is the unequivocal ticket for success and fortune. I’m not trying to toot my own horn here, but I | Read More »
The Left’s Conflicting Interests
Leftist coalitions always falter because they target special interests that conflict, this is going to be illustrated in no better way than the 2010 California Gubernatorial Election. Despite being a deeply blue state, and it’s current governor being a Republican (albiet a RINO; and I don’t throw that term around), the likely Republican candidate Meg Whitman is favored to become the next governor of the | Read More »
C’mon Now, Laura…..
I like Laura Ingraham, her show is one of the most relevant and entertaining talk radio shows, and she is easily the most listened to conservative female talk radio host (not overall, Dr. Laura still owns a large audience.) I’m also not the biggest fan of Meghan McCain, but this is a bit below the belt. <object width=”425″ height=”344″><param name=”movie” value=”http://www.youtube.com/v/z9zlHHqAxY4&color1=0xb1b1b1&color2=0xcfcfcf&hl=en&feature=player_embedded&fs=1″></param><param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true”></param><embed src=”http://www.youtube.com/v/z9zlHHqAxY4&color1=0xb1b1b1&color2=0xcfcfcf&hl=en&feature=player_embedded&fs=1″ type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” | Read More »
Jon Stewart: Moron.
Allow me to preface this thought with a little caveat: I really enjoy The Daily Show and especially The Colbert Report. I think no one does what Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert better than they do and the attempts by the right to do something similar have not worked as well (1/2 Hour News Hour Anyone?), although Dennis Miller, which was serious but had bits | Read More »
Romney vs. Palin
Yes, yes, yes, I know, we need to focus on 2010, blah, blah, blah. I get it. Humor me though for a second, I want to see where conservatives stand in 2012 right now. I’ll make no secret of my love for Sarah Palin, I LOVE that she’s not tainted by the system. She’s a genuine conservative because that’s the way she lives her life. | Read More »
