Friday in August: One Last Veep Speculation Thread
Well, now that Barack Obama is calling the unlucky ones, we’re running out of time to do the last fun speculation thing prior to the election, and I still haven’t thrown up a post of significance about all this. So here goes.On Obama’s side, it seemed clear from the beginning that he was going to bollix this choice. It tends to prove the old dictum | Read More »
Deep Sixing the Obama Vessel
*Nota bene; Originally posted in December 2006. I usually don’t recycle articles, but I was asked; several times.The recent thoughtful opining by the press and others on Barack Obama is very nice, feel good reading. It makes me think of tall fragrant grass, fresh summer winds and other calming thoughts. Frankly, it is a pleasant fantasy which distracts from daily concerns such as potential terrorists | Read More »

Video: Erick’s interview on H&C.
Part One had Colmes doing an excellent example of a poleaxed bull (who would have thought that a few sheets of paper could carry such a wallop?):Temp……while Part Two had this Steve Murphy guy almost frothing at the mouth from the way that Erick (and, belatedly, Alice Stewart) kept jabbing him.But Part Three – the Lefty blog that I pulled the video links from – | Read More »
Senator Obama: How Many Houses?
Senator Obama,I see that you are making a big deal over the fact that your Republican rival owns several pieces of property, as if it were some major scandal. But if you really want to be accurate, you should note that John McCain owns no property at all, as all those houses are under his wife and children’s names. I also see that your surrogates | Read More »
Can this birth certificate nonsense be over now?
Jess Heng of FactCheck.org has held the stupid thing in his hands. They have taken photos of it. It says “Barack Hussein Obama II” as the name and “Honolulu” as the place of birth. The document number is 151 1961 – 010641. It is, in other words, a certified copy of a birth certificate that shows that the assumed Democratic candidate for President is eligible | Read More »

Obama’s glass houses
Since how many houses John McCain has seems to be the issue du jour, David Freddoso takes some time to discuss Obama’s house and his pal Tony Rezko. The house:Barack Obama has admitted it was “boneheaded” to get involved in a land deal with Tony Rezko, his friend and fund-raiser. But the media’s focus on that deal has distracted from the bigger question: Why would | Read More »
Let’s Talk Forgetfulness
John McCain wasn’t sure how many houses he owned. Sounds bad? Perhaps.Almost as bad as not remembering how many states there are in the Union. Or the number of cyclone victims in Burma, for that matter.
For The Obama Campaign
Sleep with one eye open:A brother of New York Sen. Hillary Clinton and local Democrats who backed her unsuccessful presidential campaign socialized privately Monday with a top surrogate of the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, Arizona Sen. John McCain.The private gathering featured Carly Fiorina, Mr. McCain’s top economic adviser, and took place at the Dunmore home of political consultant Jamie Brazil, a longtime friend of Mrs. | Read More »
This election season appears to be conspiring to make me look bad as a prognosticator. I thought that Hillary Clinton would win the Democratic nomination and instead, Barack Obama came storming onto the political scene and took it away from her. Next, I thought that Barack Obama would win the Presidential election and . . . well, I still think that but here comes John | Read More »
Dems in denial of Barry’s position on infant life
When the Yankees aren’t playing, and when Erick is a guest on Hannity & Colmes, I watch FNC’s prime time stuff. One thing I’ve noted about Alan Colmes and Bob Beckel is their reluctance to accept that Obama actually believes that you can leave living babies, survivors of botched abortions, to die without medical treatment. They think the claim cannot be right; there must be | Read More »
Harry Reid hates John McCain
John McCain has made some powerful enemies of late, none more so that the majority leader of the United States Senate, Dingy Harry. That’s Senator Harry Reid (D-Nevada) to those of you who respect the man.His hometown paper, the Las Vegas Review-Journal , asked Reid about Joe Lieberman, and Dingy Harry defended his old friend:”He has a close personal relationship with John McCain. I don’t | Read More »
