BREAKING: AP Poll shows Obama and McCain Basically Tied
This basically speaks for itself WASHINGTON (AP) – The presidential race tightened after the final debate, with John McCain gaining among whites and people earning less than $50,000, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll that shows McCain and Barack Obama essentially running even among likely voters in the election homestretch. It ain’t over until it’s over! ht Drudge
Why Joe The Plumber Is an Ungrateful Bastard
Everyone knows by now that Joe the Plumber asked the most sizzling question of the 2008 campaign- how will Obama’s tax policy affect small business? This question was infinitely better than anything asked in any of the debates, their high priced moderators notwithstanding. Predictably, the MSM and lefty blogs, suspecting lèse majesté, went after him and all of a sudden it was Trash Joe Week. | Read More »
Questions for Colin Powell
As one of America’s most respected generals, you were instrumental in torpedoing the Clinton Administration’s gays-in-the-military policy? What is Obama’s position on this subject? As one of America’s most respected generals, how do you feel about the far left’s assault on our military forces, and their support for Obama? As one of America’s more mediocre Secretaries of State, how do you feel about your sales | Read More »
Debate Night! And Some Notes On Long Island
Sagamore Hill, Oyster Bay – Home of John McCain’s hero, Teddy Roosevelt Contrary to popular opinion, John McCain does not need to score a so-called knockout tonight. He simply needs to be on message, and passionately so: Barack Obama is an unqualified tax-and-spender, who has displayed incredibly bad judgment in his associations, which range from the hard left to the corrupt. He has no experience | Read More »
Attention All Poll-a-holic Sourpusses: Being Down 6 Points Is a Nothingburger
First, the bad news. It is entirely possible that Barack Obama will be elected president of the United States (and there is a silver lining even in that). And now the good news. Obama’s advantage in the polls is relatively small and easily reversible given the general volatility of public opinion and the particular ambivalence of the public with respect to Obama personally. The polls | Read More »
Obama and The Chicago School: PR Lesson #1
While Hollywood is undoubtedly pro-Obama, we can take cheer in the fact that it has already produced an extremely useful film for our efforts to understand the Obama phenomenon. That would be the vastly entertaining musical Chicago. Here’s Billy Flynn, patron saint of all Chicago lawyers, giving a demo on how to turn a really bad case into solid gold! And even Ayers’ smoking gun | Read More »
Chicago’s Public Schools- It Takes a Paddle to Raise a Child
h/t Drudge It does look like all that Annenberg money that Barack Obama and his pal William Ayers spent might have been diverted to, um, weapons of @$$ destruction. CBS Chicago reports on a scandal that has broken out involving physical abuse at Chicago pulic schools. CHICAGO (CBS) ? CBS 2 Investigator Dave Savini exposed illegal corporal punishment in public schools, and the report is | Read More »
Foreign Policy For DUMMIES- The Book(s) Obama Needs to Read
France has a longstanding tradition of realism in foreign policy, as well as an unapologetic resolve to protect her national interests. Both were on display recently as French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner visited Israel and succinctly warned that Israel will hit Iranian nuclear sites before Iran can finish its race to build nuclear weapons. “First, because you will hit them before. And this is the | Read More »
VP Debate: Sarah Reels In The Big Fish
The VP debate turned into the ultimate victory of strategy over tactics. And Sarah Palin was the one with the strategy. She has mastered the art of deflecting loaded questions while giving substantive answers. She effectively hammered home the differences between McCain and Obama, never more so than when she highlighted the differences between Obama and Biden before Joe was selected by The One. Biden’s | Read More »
This Debate Wasn’t “The One”, But Johnny Mac Did Good
A mythology has grown up about presidential debates that needs to be debunked. Nixon didn’t lose the 1960 election because of a five o’clock shadow. Reagan didn’t nail 1980 with “there you go again”. Al Gore didn’t blow 2000 by treading on GWB’s space or showing up with the orange glop makeup. Debates are about impressions and revelations about the personae. Thus, they are important, | Read More »
Obama’s Ageing, Tiresome Narrative
Have you noticed the increased whining coming out of the Obama camp? The meme is that the crafty McCain is responsible for Obama’s difficulty by putting unfair ads on the air and pandering to women by an unqualified female pick for VP. Ah, my dear Obamatrons. The problem is not in your stars, but in yourselves. And your STAR. No presidential election is a cakewalk. | Read More »
Humor Break: Jib-Jab Strikes Again
We take our hits, but the section on Obama is a hoot! The Clinton parts are pretty funny, too. They’re giving Johnny Mac the old Bob Dole treatment. Which of course you know they would. The jib-jab guys are marketing this as a sendable e-card with interactive features. This tech stuff just gets cooler and cooler! link to jib-jab sendable card
Democratic Convention- All That Hope and Change, and All We Got Was Al Gore’s 2000 Speech
First, I have a small bone to pick with Sarah Palin. All that enthusiasm over her selection, which I share., has taken attention away from The One’s performance in Denver on Thursday evening. Obama was da bomb- but not in a good way. The chattering classes have seriously overestimated Obama’s skills based on his 2004 speech, which was an emotionally energetic, uplifting one. His Denver | Read More »
Biden- Not a Bad Pick, BUT
Let’s go down memory lane a bit, as this will help to put Obama’s selection of Joe Biden in proper perspective. JFK- picked his convention opponent and Senate powerhouse, Lyndon Johnson., to the consternation of his supporters. JFK acted in the overriding interest of electoral victory. Reagan-the magnanimous Gipper chose his primary opponent, a selection reflecting great self-confidence. And a practical one, too, building a | Read More »
Obama-Biden: FUNiculi, FUNicula!- Cultural Relief from Anglo Legal Gasbags
One of the great joys of Italian culture is that a healthy dose gives quick relief from our word-obsessed, soundbite-laden political culture that the rest of the world finds, well, rather peculiar. So here goes! Background & translation can be found here. The lyrics make more sense than anything we’re likely to see from the Democratic ticket. We can do repetitive nonsense, too, and ours | Read More »

Wow. Kos & Ko. got quite a jolt this morning in their lonely rooms when those cells started buzzing! With a little bit of editing, easily done in our imagination, here is the perfect songto help them in their time of loss. And this song was HOT when Joe Biden started in politics. So sing it, brothers and sisters!
Senator Obama, You’re No Jack Kennedy
Despite the change & youth hype, the endorsement of Ted Kennedy, the Kennedy family patriarch, and the obvious similarity (first credible African American candidate vs first credible Catholic candidate), there are striking differences between Senator Barack Obama and Senator John F. Kennedy at this stage in their careers. These are worth looking into. Fathers While it is hard to make Joe Kennedy Sr a truly | Read More »
Will the media EVER get the Catholic vote thing right?
They would have a hard time keeping up with today’s parishes! The MSM, clueless as ever to the realities of social change in America, is recycling a lot of nonsense about the poor urban ethnic Catholic working-class voter, and how these Catholics are troubled by an Obama candidacy. This image of the Catholic voter is a myth, a holdover from days long gone by, and | Read More »
