Sarah Palin is The One We Have Been Waiting For

    Sarah Palin’s triumphant speech at the Republican National Convention left the Democrats and their media allies afraid, very afraid. The evening was also a triumph for Senator John McCain, the man who had selected her for the vice presidential nomination. Well done! I had the honor of meeting Governor Palin when I keynoted the 2006 Alaska Republican Convention. She is just as impressive in person | Read More »

    MI Morning Update 9-5-2008

    60 DaysUntil Election Day September 5,2008 QUOTE OF THE DAY: "Again and again I’ve worked with members of both parties to fix problems that need to be fixed. That’s how I will govern as president. I will reach out my hand to anyone to help me get this country moving again. I have that record and the scars to prove it. Senator Obama does not." | Read More »

    John McCain’s Speach

    Like many others I watched the speach given by John McCain last night. I agree it was not the best speach ever given, at points it was slightly boring but we have to remember that John McCain is a leader. We will elect him to lead this great nation not to entrance us with word. The media is talking about how his speach differed with | Read More »

    Cable Outage Tracking during Convention Speeches

    On the night of the Obama speech, a family member in New Jersey told me about a peculiar cable outage that left only MSNBC broadcasting. Something similar is happening to me in northern New England right now. I am wondering if there is some sort of malware involved. It could just be a fluke, but I’d be interested in hearing if anyone else is seeing | Read More »

    Still Euphoric, But Day Four Looms

    I’m in seventh heaven like the rest of you, but there is still a convention going on. I read this and found it a little worrisome; “I’d like people to know what makes me work and what makes me tick and who I am, what I’m all about and where I come from,” Cindy McCain told ABC. “I have an interesting story to tell as | Read More »

    The gloves come off?

    Plenty of commentary available for everyone to digest about Sarah Palin’s speech last night, so only a few two cents’ worth here: Most precious moment of the night: Piper Palin fixing Trig’s hair. One of CNN’s female talking heads, and I paraphrase: now that she has proven she can go on attack, the BHO campaign can finally broadside her without worry of how it will | Read More »

    MI Morning Update 9-4-2008

    61 DaysUntil Election Day September 4,2008 QUOTES OF THE DAY: “I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a "community organizer," except that you have actual responsibilities.” “We tend to prefer candidates who don’t talk about us one way in Scranton and another way in San Francisco.” “But listening to him speak, it’s easy to forget that this is a man who has authored | Read More »

    Guiliani Hits One Out

    I like Barack Obama, but the guy has done nothing, nada, zippo. Barack Obama has never lead a city, a state, a troop, or a business. He has never led in crisis. You can’t vote “present” when you are leading a nation. You have to make decisions. Barack Obama’s voting record shows he cannot do that. Good point Rudy G. In November, elect a decision | Read More »

    Campbell Brown

    It’s been said before, and I agree, CINC of any NG is rather thin. It was that way 16 and 8 years ago, it’s thin now. It’s just now it’s a “Gotcha!”. They guy she ran over was clearly over his head in this situation. My theoretical response (it’s not much – not too much to work with): Any governor has the same responsibility and | Read More »

    Tonight’s Convention Speakers Lineup

    If you are like me, you’ve been in the dark a bit day to day about the speaker schedule for the Republican Convention, given that the hurricane scrambled the original lineup. Here is tonight’s lineup, and it’s a good one following last night’s right-left combo of Fred Thompson (or, if you were watching most of the networks, the last third or so of Fred) and | Read More »

    The Stadium’s Half Empty

    1) Why was the RNC seemingly poorly attended last night? It seemed like half the seats were empty? 2) Why is everyone so upset with Campbell Brown who asked a simple question of Tucker Bounds who couldn’t answer it. 3) Why were there almost no people of color in the RNC auditorium? I mean, I know there are a few black and hispanic R’s, but | Read More »

    Protesters Behaving Badly

    I hope that you are not upset at a liberal deciding to post a diary entry here. If you feel that this is crossing the line about how liberals should be expected to behave in a conservative home, please say so. I believe that liberals and conservatives both can agree on many subjects. We may disagree about the best way to deal with certain problems, | Read More »

    What Gov. Palin Needs To Say Tonight

    Tonight’s speech at the Republican National Convention by vice presidential nominee Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is probably the most important convention speech in memory by a vice presidential candidate. Gov. Palin made a smashingly good impression with her initial appearance on Friday, but her relative inexperience combined with a ferocious left-wing/media assault on her and her family has left a lot of the public up | Read More »

    Time for Action; Let’s Reclaim Our Convention

    The next couple of days will not be about well reasoned arguments, rationalizations or reflection. It is a time for action. This is our convention, our celebration and we must reclaim it. It will be aired unfiltered in living rooms, bars and coffee shops across America. The media cannot control the raw footage. The media has turned our Sarah into a major player. The tried | Read More »
