What Mitt Should Say
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com It’s just a little over a month until the first official contest in the 2012 Republican primary season, which in this i-Pad culture means things should have been wrapped up by now. It’s gone on too long. Why, all the other Reality TV shows, from “Iron Chef” to “Survivor” to “Dancing With the Hollywood Chefs,” are in reruns by now. | Read More »
Boycott the Malls!
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com The President says to. You have to pity the poor kid currently Occupying the White House. He is desperately seeking reelection, not for his own glory, but out of a sense of duty. His Work is not yet done here. His people still need his transformative gifts. Yet it grows ever more difficult to get through to those wayward subjects. They look at his | Read More »
Bludgeoning the American Dream
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com During last month’s bizarrely partisan ambush of Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis), President Hosni Obama (D-Chi) said the Republican budget plan would “end Medicare as we know it.” Since then, Democrats have been demagoging seniors, blatantly lying, and jeopardizing national security, in a naked bid to reclaim control of the House of Representatives. Obviously Ryan’s plan, which isn’t scheduled to begin for ten years, won’t | Read More »
Give Him a Miller Lite
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com His HuffPo hagiographers notwithstanding, President Barack Obama did not plan the mission to take out Osama bin Laden. And rightfully so. He has no military experience, and therefore, no standing, to directly plan a combat mission. He would have needlessly and recklessly endangered American soldiers’ lives if he had. The sad thing is, his abject supporters had no reason to give voice to such | Read More »
What Part of No-Fly Don’t You Understand?
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com There are few things as disturbing as watching the current administration in full crisis mode. It’s sort of like watching a Charlie Sheen interview, without the underlying sense of competence and class. The administration has been scrambling since that Tunisian fruit vendor lit himself on fire. Granted, these are difficult times, and the stakes are enormous. This is the sort of situation which demands | Read More »
P!#tts My Dad Says
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com How awful is liberal columnist Leonard Pitts Jr.? Well, if my father were a liberal weenie given to posing as an intellectual while spewing the most absurd, illogical arguments; if he were a moral poseur, pretending to be preaching about love and mutual respect while dismissing those with whom he disagrees as either evil or moronic; and if he were just a real lousy | Read More »
The Unbearable Lightness of Vitriol
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com Ever since President Barack H. Obama (D-Chi) traveled to Tucson, AZ to heal a troubled land, pundits have studied the Republican Party, wondering when that seething morass of hatred and invective will erupt again in partisan vitriol. Early indications are not promising. It is a pity that conservatives are so consumed with hatred and racist rage that Obama’s words of truth, beauty and wisdom | Read More »
The Audacity of the Hopelessly Partisan
http://www.mlgoodell.webs.com Last Friday we had an appointment with a stoma nurse at the hospital downtown where Mary will undergo surgery in a couple of weeks. Katie was very helpful, hopeful and encouragingly competent and confident. We felt in good hands, and were ready to leave what had been an upbeat session concerning a less than upbeat subject. Then, as we got up to go, Katie | Read More »
