Pew Poll Shocking — Because Their Pollster Thought Obama’s Lead Was Huge
Every election cycle, the American people are inundated with polls. Polls with blacks, white, Hispanics, women, Jews, Catholics, young people, and the Asians are disseminated ad nauseam – despite most of them being flawed or so skewed concerning the sample spread that it’s not worth commenting on in any analysis. When Romney hit a slump towards the end of September, which led to his dip | Read More »
ABC News’ Tapper asks ‘didn’t President Obama shoot first and aim later?’
Does anyone remember when President Obama and some in the media chastised Mitt Romney over his remarks after the Cairo protests and the Libyan terrorist attack on our embassy in Benghazi, which led to the assassination of Ambassador Chris Stevens? Who remembers when the media, by and large, ignored the true story, which surrounded the state of our security at the Benghazi embassy the day of the | Read More »
Tech at Night: FCC’s own snooping scandal? Also, Collins turns on Obama on cybersecurity
Remember the Google Wi-Spy Street View scandal? A seemingly-harmless survey of the country turned into a massive snooping operation, and the FTC smacked them for over 20 million dollars. Well, not only is FCC now wasting money with a survey of Internet speeds, but it turns out that the FCC program runs the risk of warrantless snooping of its own!
We need strong, reformist regulators to be appointed in the next administration to stop stuff like this.

The American Political Press’s Psycho Moment
I was too hard on Chuck Todd in my earlier post. I apologize to him for it. My point was not to brow beat Chuck Todd, but many people took it as such. I have to conclude I failed to convey the extent of my point because in focusing as I did on Chuck Todd and his remark, I overshadowed the substance of his remark. | Read More »
President Obama promises to be incompetently nasty at next debate.
I’m paraphrasing: the exact line from the ABC article was “President Obama says he was “just too polite” and that voters should expect “a little more activity” next week in round two.” How is this funny? Let me count the ways: ‘Too polite’ is not actually semantically equivalent to ‘walked into an ambush fat, dumb, and happy.’ Which is what happened. And while ‘a little | Read More »
Hollywood’s Newest Scandal
Actress Stacey Dash just dropped a bombshell. She has shocked the world. She has peed voluminously upon the pieties of the Tinseltown Apostates. She has audaciously and egregiously thought for herself, and endorsed Mitt Romney for President.
In Hollywood, they like their creativity vapidly unoriginal and their diversity homogenous. There must be blood. (Or at least a gaggle of idiots auto-beclowning on Twitter). Piers Morgan of CNN samples some of the idiots below.

Small President Clings to Big Bird
Barack Obama, 2008: “If you don’t have any fresh ideas, then you use stale tactics to scare the voters. If you don’t have a record to run on, then you paint your opponent as someone people should run from. You make a big election about small things.” Barack Obama, 2012: Big Bird! Big Bird! Big Bird! Today’s lesson in campaign implosions brought to you by | Read More »
The Big Bird Presidency
President Barack Obama has fought more for Big Bird’s job in the last week than he has fought for the jobs of 23 million unemployed Americans in the past three years. Political pundits have questioned the wisdom of Mitt Romney’s quip about Big Bird in stating he would like to cut federal funding for PBS. Democrats have reacted with glee, seizing on the statement as yet another | Read More »
There Are Two Paths
As we approach the finish line of what I think is one of the most fascinating periods in this great American experiment, a Presidential election, it is clear to me and the team at the Madison Action Fund that we are literally a country at the crossroads of history. We have the choice between two paths. And while some will complain that the distinction between | Read More »

The Obama Campaign Processed This Donation
Here now is the screenshot of what Barack Obama’s campaign processed as a donation to the campaign. This would not have happened had the Obama campaign taken basic steps to verify credit card information. But, as always, Team Obama relied on someone else to fix their mess — the bank. Had basic checks been implemented, this donation would have been rejected. Keep in mind that | Read More »
Despite What Pundits Say, Romney Still Has Underdog Advantage
From the diaries by Erick The past few weeks have been chalk-full of conservative pundits voicing their concerns with the Romney-Ryan campaign. Let’s review. It began with a POLITICO story citing numerous sources blaming the impending fall of the Republic on Romney strategist Stuart Stevens. Then came the holy trinity of conservative columnists – David Brooks, Charles Krauthammer, and Peggy Noonan – labeling Romney as | Read More »
I Donated to Barack Obama

In light of this Newsweek story about the Illegal-Donor loophole with Team ObamaA while back, among conservatives, it was even a story that he was doing this shoddy credit card verification for overseas donors.So, after talking with some lawyers about the process, etc. I donated to Barack Obama.
