Wow

    Yet another passive-aggressive slam of Barack Obama by Bill Clinton. I think it is safe to say that No. 42 doesn’t really like the would-be No. 44. Looks like someone didn’t get the memo about the need for party unity, eh?

    Tougher Than Expected

    It appears that Saddleback and its aftermath rocked David Gergen back on his heels: Heading into the candidates’ appearances on Saturday night at Saddleback Church, the conventional wisdom in politics was Barack Obama should have a clear upper hand in any joint appearance with John McCain — one the young, eloquent, cool, charismatic dude who can charm birds from the trees, the other the meandering, | Read More »

    McCain’s Pro-Abortion Running Mate

    It is just too damn coincidental that McCain kicked Obama’s butt all over Saddleback Community Church on Saturday night and now all of a sudden the media is filled with stories about McCain eyeing a pro-abortion running mate. It’s as if someone wants to undermine every gain McCain made on Saturday in a way the “McCain cheated” meme failed to do. What say you? Where | Read More »

    The Battered Spouses of the Left

    Our side expects McCain to name a pro-life Vice President. He will. The left expects Obama to obstruct FISA. He folds like a cheap suit. The left sends him more money. Our side expects McCain to change his mind on domestic oil production. He does. The left expects Obama to continue his obstruction of offshore drilling. Obama caves on the issue. The left sends him | Read More »

    We’re All Knotted Up

    Yet another poll, this time the LA Times/Bloomberg poll, puts this race in a statistical tie. Obama now only “leads” 45 – 43% (with 10% undecided). The two percent difference is well within the margin of 3%. The “negative ads” (also known in the real world as contrast ads) have been working.

    The Annenberg Records Will Show Obama’s Connection With Bill Ayers Was Direct and Substantive

    If you haven’t paid attention to the coverup related to the Annenberg Challenge on Excellence in Education, you need to catch up. This is a ticking time bomb for the Obama campaign. They are doing their best, through proxies, to stop the release of the Annenberg records from the University of Illinois Chicago (“UIC”). Why? Because as Rick Moran points out the release of the | Read More »

    Obama’s veep: Michael Moore nominates Caroline Kennedy

    I’ve obtained a copy of the e-mail sent by Michael Moore to his michaelmooore.com groupies in which he begs Caroline Kennedy, she of Barry’s veep search team, and asks her to “pull a Cheney” and select herself as Barry’s veep. (It’s also on his web site.) The poor man is either drunk or goofy. Here’s the text of Moore’s missive: Dear Caroline, 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 Yours,Michael [email protected] | Read More »

    The Question that Hasn’t Been Asked Yet About Obama and Ayers

    Stanley Kurtz of NRO is attempting–with very little success and a lot of stonewalling–to get the records of Senator Barack Obama’s association with a short-lived non-profit organization called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge (CAC). He wants the records because the CAC was set up by unrepentant terrorist William Ayers, and because Obama served not only on the board, but as chairman of the board from 1995-1999. | Read More »

    David Brody Thinks I’m Shrill. I Think Brody Is Letting Perceptions About Objectivity Get in the Way of Facts

    David Brody gets good access to Barack Obama. Obama, after all, is making superficial outreach efforts to the evangelical community (probably not for much longer). As a consequence of this access, Brody has every reason to play it straight, even to the point of being unwilling to connect the dots himself regarding Obama’s support of infanticide, dots that are abundantly obvious. By not doing so, | Read More »

    McCain’s Website Needs An Obama Tax Hike Calculator!

    So I spent a little time noodling around the McCain campaign website, and maybe this is buried deep in the site somewhere and I missed it, but shouldn’t the site have a place where you can calculate, even roughly, how much Obama’s tax hike plans will cost you? Certainly taxes is a huge issue, being a hardy GOP perennial, an issue on which Obama has | Read More »

    A case to be made for Joe Biden as Obama’s veep

    It is difficult for me to recommend that Joe Biden be nominated to higher office, but I will. First, I’ll have to psyche myself for the task. Over at the TIME Magazine’s web site, Mark Halperin quotes “one of the keenest observers of American politics (a/k/a: X)” about why Joe Biden would be a good veep choice for Obama. In part: “Biden may be a | Read More »

    The Almost..LAST CHANCE to guess who BARRY picks for VP Official Redstate Poll

    Sore Loser Thy Name Is Obama Camp, NBC

    So the Obama camp’s level of arrogance just went up a notch this week. They accused John McCain of possibly knowing the questions and listening in on Barack Obama’s time with Rick Warren during Saturday’s Saddleback forum. It’s so beyond the comprehension of the Obama campaign that their candidate lost a battle of conversation to a 72 year old man. Rick Davis, of the McCain | Read More »

    Barack Obama Finally Admits He Supports Infanticide

    Barack Obama has finally admitted he did support infanticide in the Illinois State Legislature. Naturally, he won’t phrase it that way and naturally the media won’t cover it, but in fact, he has now admitted he supported infanticide. I have my weekly “RedState Under the Radar” column up at Human Events examining this topic. The column is based on the work we’ve done here at | Read More »

    Obama to spread the Philly street money around.

    Funny how that works out, though: both Ed Morrissey and I gave the campaign props for refusing to play the money game in Philly. “We’ve heard directly from the Obama organizer who organizes our ward, and he told us it’s an entirely volunteer organization and that I should not expect to see anything from the Obama campaign other than ads on TV and the support | Read More »
