I doubt Joanie Caucus wants to take credit for it now
But was that one lousy speech Elizabeth Warren gave last night or what? For those of you who have NO idea what I’m prattling on about, Gary Trudeau has a running plot in Doonesbury that Joanie Caucus was helping to write Elizabeth Warren’s speech. Cause it was gonna be “historic.” Trudeau realizes that convention speeches are the launching pad for careers in the democratic party. | Read More »
Support Chik Fil A, Boycott Amazon
I think we’ve all discussed here at length the need to support Chik Fil A (and I do pretty much on a daily basis.) Now comes news that Amazon’s founder has contributed $2.5 million towards promoting same sex marriage in Washington. http://slatest.slate.com/posts/2012/07/27/referendum_74_supported_by_amazon_founder_jeff_bezos_with_2_5_million_donation_to_same_sex_marriage_effort.html?from=rss/&wpisrc=newsletter_slatest So – we’ve got to boycott Amazon, right? I have a pre order with them right now that I’m going to cancel. Let’s | Read More »
NYT turns on McCain
Warning to all RINO’s! The liberal media WILL bite the hand that feeds it. Today’s NYT has a profile on John McCain titled “Once a rebel, McCain now walks the party line.” They make this out like it’s a bad thing. Poor John McCain. He was once the media’s favorite Republican – until he ran for president. Throughout his senate career, he thought he could | Read More »
Not sorry for Penn State’s fans. They’re getting what they deserve.

It’s Not a Myth!
I just love reading the New York Times. It’s both infuriating and hysterical. In today’s issue, Bill Keller is the latest liberal attempting to “dispel the myths” about Obamacare. My personal favorite is “Obamacare is a federal takeover of health insurance.” Why, nothing could be further from the truth! Obamacare is just adding some new regulations. Besides, those insurance companies are all run by evil | Read More »
Is it time to get ugly?
There’s an old country saying that goes something like “Never wrestle with a pig. You’ll both get dirty but the pig will enjoy it.” Before the Supreme Court made it’s Obamacare ruling, liberals were raising fears about right wing violence. Patrick Kennedy, son of the late Ted, wrote “if the court upholds the law. dangerous Tea Party extremists will go on a rampage.” Maybe we | Read More »
Yankee Doodle Dandy
Over the years, I’ve developed my own personal Independence Day traditions. When I was younger, we used to stake a spot at the park and wait out in the heat all day to see the fireworks. But now, I can’t tolerate that (and it’s such a drag being stuck in traffic until after midnight on a work night.) So instead I watch the fireworks on | Read More »
The Best Question Anyone Ever Asked Me
I’m pretty greedy about my right to vote. I was so proud to vote in my first presidential election (although considering I voted for Mike Dukakis the world might have been better off if I had been a slacker like most 20 year olds.) I’m pretty sure I’ve convinced my godmother – a lifelong democrat – to go for Romney this year. And a liberal | Read More »
The Boggart President
For 4 years now, we’ve been debating exactly WHAT Barack Obama is. In his own autobiography “The Audacity of Hope,” Obama described himself as “a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views.” That was a pretty astute observation and served him well getting elected on 2008. Liberals saw him as the second coming of JFK. Moderates saw him | Read More »
