DNC Wrap-Up Day Three: Obama Sighted
The Democratic Convention has finally gotten around to discussing the nominee, Sen. Barack Obama. Tonight was a good one for Democrats in general, although the performance of the Vice-Presidential nominee, Sen. Joe Biden, left much to be desired. Credit the Democrats, they managed to turn the Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama nomination controversy into a positive. The roll call of the states provided the backdrop. Sen. Hillary | Read More »

Bill Clinton Speaks & Joe Biden Is Next
This is going to be fun. The crowd goes nuts. More nuts for him than they ever did for Hillary. Michelle looks happier tonight. “I’m here first to support Barack Obama and second to warm up the crowd for Joe Biden . . . . I love Joe Biden.” “In the end, my candidate didn’t win, but I’m really proud of the campaign she ran.” | Read More »
Hats Off To Hillary Clinton
I watched “The Speech” last night and I need to tell you that Hillary Clinton impressed me, and in a BIG way. That speech had to have been one of the hardest things she has ever had to do in her entire life. She did it with grace and complete class. It was well delivered. Unfortunately, she wasn’t believable and I don’t think her supporters | Read More »
Barack Obama is on Al Gore’s “Love Train”
I wrote it down contemporaneously, so now we can all remember together. In 1999, the Democrats were ready to party like it was 1973. Saturday, September 25 of that year was the final day of the Democratic National Committee under National Chairman Joe Andrew and General Chairman (and Philadelphia Mayor) Ed Rendell. In the next year, they would nominate Al Gore to run for President | Read More »
ABC News producer arrested taking pictures of Democrat donors, senators.
Ah yes, freedom of the press. Grand isnt it? Unless you happen to be a reporter taking pictures of “big” Democrat donors and senators meeting at a hotel in Denver during their convention. ABC News producer Asa Eslocker was arrested today outside the Brown Palace Hotel while doing investigative reporting on corperate lobbyist and political conventions.
A Great Video Metaphor for McCain v. Obama
Snazzy guy with lots of cool moves and flips versus the traditional trench fighter.
Did Hillary Clinton Use a Racist Theme In Her DNC Speech?
This was probably totally unintentional, but there have been doubts about the Clintons. I DO NOT say that the Clintons, or that Hillary herself, are/is racist, but to use the following line in her DNC speech when everyone is scrutinizing whether she will support Obama, and everyone is scrutinizing her phraseology in doing so, is, at minimum, a severe lapse in judgment: “And along the | Read More »
The pro-slavery candidate
Ironic really, that the self proclaimed civil rights proponent and African-American candidate defends the practice of human ownership as part of his political platform. When human life begins, whether at conception when a distinct human DNA is created and a systematic, organized, and growing (aka living) organism exists, or at birth when occasionally a newborn escapes its planned barbaric execution during a botched abortion and | Read More »
Inside Obama’s Greek Temple
Via Jonah Goldberg, we get this exclusive look inside the planning session for Sen. Barack Obama’s Greek temple set from which he will accept the Democratic Party nomination. “Can I raise a practical question at this point? Are we doing Stonehenge tonight?”
We seem to be having a Star Trek TOS meme going with Obama, here.
Don’t get me wrong, loved the first two seasons growing up, have all of Diane Duane’s ST books – but this isn’t really the mood that I presume that the Obama campaign wants to present. Particularly since McCain’s going with that entire BSG 2.0 vibe. Anyway, first we had the Space Hippies: …and now we have to ask, “Who Mourns for Adonis?“ …um, not me? | Read More »
Voter Confidence in Iraq and War on Terror: Highest EVER
It’s an odd thing to watch the Democratic Convention in Denver. The messages just aren’t consistent – there’s an off-kilter feel to the whole thing. Just take Mark Warner’s remarks last night for example. Here’s a guy who’s viewed as the future of the party, whose withdrawal before the presidential stakes was shocking to a lot of people, and who – if Barack Obama loses | Read More »
Barack Obama Really, Really Wants His Critics Thrown in Jail.
Barack Obama really, really does not like it when you point out that his political career was launched in the home of unrepentant (although incompetent) terrorist Bill Ayers. He dislikes it so much, he wants to have the people who are doing it thrown in jail. Seriously. Yeah, apparently, the Democrats are still absolutely obsessed with the narrative about how Kerry lost the election because | Read More »
FoxNews Runs Story Connecting Obama to Ayers
Well, it finally happened… a major news outlet has picked up the Obama-Ayers story, and, of course, it was FoxNews (you didn’t think MSNBC would print anything that looks bad for Obama unless their arm was twisted, did you?). Look for Obama to start spinning furiously and flailing even more than he is now. This is political dynamite, and the fuse has been lit.
MI Morning Update: McCain MI Grassroots leadership grows, Granholm talks about energy at DNC
69 Days Until Election Day August 27, 2008 MORNING UPDATE: HILLARY SPEAKS…rocks the convention hall. But it’s always about "Hillary"…if only she could write her own history…and if you listened to her "promises" on behalf of "the one"…hold onto your wallets folks…there is NO free lunch. CLINTON-OBAMA…I have to admit, I thought this combo would have been the Democrat’s "dream team"…now Biden’s own words will be | Read More »
