I can understand being enterprising in seeking information concerning a story if one is a reporter. But this is beyond ridiculous. Does the New York Times discipline reporters who go to such outrageous lengths to do a smear job? Probably not. Those reporters likely get raises instead.
Is John McCain (and his campaign) trying to “throw” the election
The opening skit on SNL with Sarah Palin reminds me of Dukakis on the tank.
Obama nation assaults woman in NYNY
It may have taken a month to hit the blogosphere, but it was assault nonetheless. On September 15th a female McCain volunteer was badly beaten about the face by an enraged loony leftist lib’ Obama supporter in midtown Manhattan. She was with a small group handing out campaign literature and signs. The attacker (allegedly) broke off and beat her with a stick from one of | Read More »

662,000 American Dreams
H/T to Kat-MO at Ace. Barack Obama says only 2% of small businesses will be affected by his tax plan that will raise taxes on those that make over $250,000. Small businesses account for 80% of job creation in the United States each year. Let’s take a look at some of the businesses that Obama wants to raise taxes on:
Is the Powell endorsement the democrats’ October Surprise?
I still can’t believe no one on this board has written about Colin Powell’s appearance on Meet the Press tomorrow. He is most likely going to endorse Obama, a move that will make the news for at least 3-4 days, thereby getting everything else off the news cycle. Just as McCain is coming back, this will be a devastating blow for his campaign. Can McCain | Read More »
We won–the debate is over
We keep hearing about how this is a democrat year and that the Republicans face an incredibly strong (and many say insurmountable head wind) this November. I am not a pollster, and I know that it can be challenging to differentiate what I want to happen from a pure analytical analysis of what will ultimately happen or what is likely happen. All I know is | Read More »
Senator Obama Isn’t Serious About Social Security Reform
Ask any economist and many of the politicians and those that pay attention on the right what they say is the single biggest problem facing this country. The answer will likely be the unfunded liabilities of the federal government’s entitlement programs of Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Serious action needs to be taken now to keep those three programs from swallowing the entirety of the | Read More »
George Santayana, Yogi Berra and the Election
Remember when it appeared that Sen. John Kerry might make George W. Bush a one-term president just like his father? Can’t remember that? Let’s do a memory refresh from October 16, 2004. Leftblogger Jerome Armstrong of mydd.com looked deep into a Washington Post poll and found encouragement in the internals. The WaPo survey reported that Kerry “continued to claim a large lead in key battleground | Read More »
How Many Plumbers do You Know that Make $250,000 a Year?
I know one: my brother-in-law. He has a small plumbing business–just like the one that Joe the Plumber aspires to have—in Massachusetts and does very well financially, and it is how he supports his wife and five children. What Biden and Barry don’t understand about j-o-b-s (the three letter word) is that my brother in law is a plumber, but also has plumbers working for | Read More »
The Coming Backlash?
The title of this diary is from a recent article by Pat Buchanan at TownHall. I am not one of Pat’s fans, especially when he writes as an apologist for Hitler’s third Reich, but he does have a sharp political mind. Pat makes the distinction in this article between Barack Obama and George McGovern. an excerpt –
Things I’ve Learned From the 2008 Presidential Election
So we’re less than three weeks away from one of the most historic elections in the history of the United States. Over the last few weeks, I’ve learned more about the direction of this great nation than I had in all my years preceding. I’ve learned that, if you’re white, your decision to not vote for a black candidate is racist. It doesn’t matter if | Read More »
Conservatives Join the Ranks of Liberal “Intellectuals” and Attack Sarah Palin
Peggy Noonan has joined the “hate Sarah Palin” bandwagon driven by some media conservatives. Peggy, you can pick up your t-shirt on your way out the backdoor. It’s true that a lot of the intellectual conservatives think this election is lost, and they’re placing all the blame on Sarah Palin. She doesn’t have enough foreign policy experience, no national security experience, no definitive worldview, and | Read More »
The Left’s Big Blunder – a good read
A longish but good read about the downsides of over dependence on polling. http://www.zombietime.com/leftsbigblunder/
This Election Is Bringing Out The Worst In People
So . . . take a look at this: There are allegations of voter fraud, as a Dougherty County family claims the vote of a mentally challenged relative was stolen. They say the adult day rehab program where Jack Justice attends took him to vote, without the family’s permission. What’s worse is Justice says the person helping him wouldn’t cast the ballot for his choice | Read More »
