Oh, yeah: I got interviewed by the Star-Tribune.
Interesting – and I’m not being sarcastic, here: it is interesting, and I’ve had to do the same thing myself – how five minutes of conversation turns into a couple of paragraphs. I have no complaints about the article, by the way: the text was fair and the guy who wrote it was both polite and friendly. No gotchas. Moe Lane PS: via the article’s | Read More »
:pause: Suckers. Speech after the fold.
Third of the Three.
And he’s out to club him a baby harp seal: On the one hand, you’ve got a man who has dedicated his life to the service of his country. He’s been tested time and again by crisis. He’s passed every test. Even his adversaries acknowledge that he is a true American hero. He loves America as we all do – but he’s sacrificed for it | Read More »
Second of the three: Huckabee.
And serving up the humor: As much as I appreciate the opportunity to speak tonight, I really was originally hoping for the slot on Thursday called the acceptance speech. I really tire of hearing how the Democrats care about the working guy as if all Republicans grew up with silk stockings and silver spoons. In my little hometown of Hope, Arkansas, the 3 sacred heroes | Read More »
First of the three: Romney.
And serving up the raw meat: We need change all right – change from a liberal Washington to a conservative Washington! We have a prescription for every American who wants change in Washington — throw out the big government liberals and elect John McCain! Our economy is under attack. China is acting like Adam Smith on steroids, buying oil from the world’s worst, and selling | Read More »
The RLC Lunch.
Gotta say, both the National Taxpayer’s Union and the Republican National Coalition for Life are just the slightest bit more, ah, *accessible for these sorts of things. I thought that I’d check out the Republican Leadership Council lunch because, hey, big tent, right? – besides, I’m actually the moderate Republican around here. No, seriously. Pro-same sex marriage, pro-union, remember? They weren’t rude about it, but | Read More »
Quick thoughts from the RNC Life of the Party speech.
…but the aftereffects of Gustav interfered; we had Laura Ingraham instead. Very quick reaction (more later, and after the fold): if you are the sort that thinks that McCain is quietly looking for an opportunity to dump Sarah Palin, do yourself a favor and stop deluding yourself – or else do me a favor, and keep telling yourself that. I picked six or so people | Read More »
“Do the Right Thing.”
We spoke briefly with candidate Jeff Beatty, who is opposing John Kerry for Senator of Massachusetts. He, unlike Senator Kerry, is a non-career politician; business owner, former Delta Force, FBI Hostage Rescue, CIA counter-terrorism. Pic here. His central issues in this campaign are families (exemplified by high gas prices, which he would combat by a truly comprehensive energy development program, including drilling); jobs (exacberated by | Read More »
Well, isn’t that a shame: Olbermann pulled from RNC coverage.
Him doing real work for a change might have made for a refreshing change, but not to be, not to be: Keith Olbermann was pulled from St. Paul to anchor MSNBC’s storm coverage from New York, with his seat beside Chris Matthews filled by David Gregory. Capus said political considerations had nothing to do with that move; Olbermann has been sharply critical of the GOP. | Read More »
My very quick take on “An American Carol.” (UPDATED)
Good film, but it needed more zombies. (UPDATE: Ed Morrissey has a somewhat more insightful review, as usual. I tend to be forgiving of movies that give me zombies to be shotgunned.) Yeah, we forgot to mention that we were here at the RNC, huh? Me, Erick, Ben, Adam C, absentee nee The Right-Wing Nut Job, Dan Spencer, Soren, Mark I, Jeff’s popping in tomorrow, | Read More »
