I just voted McCain/Palin
I live in Washington State, one of the Bluest states in America*. And I just marked my mail-in ballot (the entire state votes by mail-in ballot, isn’t that smart?) for John McCain. I realize that there is No.Possible.Way that McCain is going to win this state. But I voted, because if I didn’t that would just be wrong. If I didn’t vote I would be | Read More »
Spare me the victimhood
The Blue Star Families For Obama are featured in an article in the Hampton Roads Pilot Online here. The premise of this article begins with an indication that they hide their Obama signs and they must be very careful at barbeques about their support giving the indication that they are a persecuted minority. A minority yes, persecuted no. Military have consistently been a conservative group, | Read More »
Good Christians! Where Are You?
I have written various pieces (q.v.) about the few bishops of the Catholic Church who stood up to Pelosi and Biden last month about abortion, which brought back the debate about excommunicating leftist Catholics (oxymoron alert!) who support all sorts of issues inimical to Catholic/Christian teachings, or at least denying them Communion at Mass, a sort of half-way step toward excommunication. One archbishop, Raymond Burke | Read More »
Do average people understand Joe Wurzelbacher?
Being a small business owner this subject is close to my heart and I wonder aloud if people truly understand what it means what happens. Lets face it, most people just go to work, do their job and then come home. Sure, they get taxed on their pay stub and some might even look at whats being taken from the pay stub, but do people | Read More »
Secret Service: “kill him” crowd jeer allegation unfounded.
I am all sure we read the stories in the media about someone yelling in a recent McCain – Palin rally about some knott head in the crowd yelling “kill him” as Sarah Palin was speaking about Senator Obama’s ties to bill Ayres. The Timesleader (local newspaper in Northeastern Pennsylvania) is now reporting that the Secret Service is calling that allegation “unfounded.” Agent Bill Slavoski | Read More »
McCain vs Obama: The Worker Freedom Election
This election has been called many things. Grover Norquist has called it the “401(k) Election.” Some groups are calling it the “Take Back the Flag Election.” However the Alliance for Worker Freedom is calling it the “Worker Freedom Election.” Yesterday, AWF released a 15-variable matrix that compares John McCain and Barack Obama on issues concerning labor, trade, unions and, well, for lack of a better | Read More »
Why My 81 Year Old Mom Is Voting For McCain
My Mom is an 81 year old Democrat. She is a Democrat in the style of JFK but has faithfully pulled the D lever every election since she started voting. She is also internet challenged. Her foray into the internet ended when she asked my brother about the nice man from Nigeria. It shocked her enough she hasn’t touched it since. We rarely talk politics | Read More »
Does this make me a racist?
And, yeah, it’s safe for work. Even though it is … oh, I’d better not say what I think of Howard Stern or this diary won’t be. For those of you guys with dial-up, Howard Stern’s man goes out into Harlem and asks people whom they support. When he finds an Obama supporter, he attributes McCain’s positions to him and asks if that is why | Read More »
OK, America—Who are You Really Mad at?
Jay Cost wrote in an excellent column that John McCain is a victim of the mortgage crisis. I believe that Cost is right, because the night before the mortgage crisis hit, Senator McCain was beating Senator Obama by an average of 3-5 points in the polls. What I can deduce from those previous polls is that when people originally compared McCain to Obama—pre-mortgage crisis—the majority | Read More »

Why Forty Years Ago Matters
I am not a child of the 60s. In fact, I am around the same age as Obama. I played with Lincoln Logs while the Weather Underground declared war on the US. I was unaware of the extent of the radicalism that permeated the minds and actions of the 60s radicals. Barack Obama stated that why should it matter what happened 40 years ago when | Read More »
Get Ready to RUMBLE!!
WorldNetDaily is today reporting how Jerome Corsi, author of “Obama Nation”, managed to escape from Kenya after being held by Kenyan immigration officials. The most potentially disturbing part of this story reads: “Corsi was set to show Obama and Odinga have been in direct contact since the senator’s visit to Kenya in 2006. He was to claim Obama advised Odinga on campaign strategy. . . | Read More »
Earth to McCain: Try The ULTIMATE “Hail Mary”!
Dear Senator McCain, Hi there. I’m a supporter and donor to your campaign. I want to win on November 4th. I presume you do as well. Let’s quickly recap where we’re at here on the night of October 2nd. As you probably know by now, you’re losing this race. You lost the 1st Presidential debate and as I’m currently typing, you’re well on your way | Read More »
“We’ve won two wars in Iraq”
The MSM has beaten their Iraq narrative into the ground. This is what’s preventing John McCain’s accusations of Obama wanting to abandon Iraq from having the impact it should, because large parts of the public either have never heard or have forgotten the story of how and why we got into Iraq in the first place, and what happened while we were there. John McCain | Read More »
