Hillary Clinton Open Thread
It’s night two. Mark Warner may have the keynote, but the networks aren’t covering it much. They are salivating for Hillary’s speech — particularly in light of Bill dissing Barack Obama today. Have at it. UPDATE: The DNC moved the keynote speech from Mark Warner up because Warner would not attack John McCain. What’s this? Politics as usual at the convention? UPDATE: She’s here.

He Won The Battle, But It Will Cost Him The War
On Thursday Barack Obama will accept the nomination of the Democrat Party to be President of the United States. His speech is expected to rival his now infamous speech at the same Convention in 2004. It better. I hope he realizes how high the bar is set. Thursday will officially mark his victory in winning the first battle necessary to be elected President, the Battle | Read More »
VPs and Disunity: What If This Happened To Us?
Everybody is going nuts over how the DNC is split this year in Denver. Will Hillary publicly release her delegates? Will there be a full roll call vote? Will Clinton-backers break for McCain? Well, here’s an idea: Revamp the VP selection process! All of the Dems’ current discords could have been prevented if the VP nominee was the second-highest delegate-getter in the primaries. With this, | Read More »
The Best Blogger Coverage of the DNC
I missed the email notifying me of this gem. And I’m kicking myself. But it’s never too late! Some friends of mine, bloggers from Denver on the Right side of the spectrum, are covering the DNC. So far their site promises to be the best blogger coverage of the event and perhaps among the best coverage period. Bloggers Ross Kaminsky, Ben DeGrow, Mike “El Presidente” | Read More »
DNC Wrap-up: Day One a Waste
The first night of the Democratic National Convention is (mercifully) over, and even for a political junkie, this was difficult to watch. The after show reviews are coming in and a consensus appears to be building that this was a wasted night. CNN’s David Gergen was the first to remark on this around 9 PM Eastern. “We’re two hours into this and so far, nothing | Read More »

Obama Rewards Big Donors
National Journal has the latest from Mr. Clean: A total of 552 individuals have bundled $50,000 or more for Obama, and 36 individuals and couples bundled $500,000 or more so far, according to the watchdog group Public Citizen. All the attention lavished on the high rollers raises questions among watchdogs about what donors might get in return for their fundraising efforts.

There’s going to be non-stop cable news | Read More »
Boycott the DNC
We should fight the good fight and not watch the DNC. Come on, Republicans, independent conservatives, let’s drive the ratings down by not lending our support. We must collectively (eeewwww) band together and ignore this proceeding. We will hear enough of it as it is, we can’t escape it. You can read all about it spewed by the propaganda wing of the Democratic Party, the | Read More »

BREAKING: Detroit Dem Delegates openly discussing casting Denver ballot for Hillary!!!!
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. Here we are less than three months away from the biggest Presidential election in my lifetime, with Russia rattling it’s saber like it’s 1988, with unemployment here in Michigan at a staggering, nation’s worst 8.5%, with gas prices hovering around $4 a gallon while Democrats vacation on the taxpayer dime and with a state jobs program who’s only method | Read More »

You too can buy the Obama Family T-Shirt
In honor of Senator Obama’s devotion to his extended family and the DNC’s efforts to remove the homeless from unsightliness if not from sight altogether, we’ve created this little item in commemoration: Get the t-shirt here
A Tale of Two Erics
Let me get this straight. Dan McLaughlin, in a story headlined here at RedState, has pointed out a hit-piece on the DNC website against potential McCain VP Eric Cantor that accuses him of being…Jewish? Is the DNC actually admitting in print an anti-Semitic bias? And has anyone asked for a comment on this from Democratic Independent Senator Joe Lieberman? More on this, and the new | Read More »
DNC on Eric Cantor: “Both Abramoff and Cantor are Jewish”
The Democratic National Committee has a website set up to attack potential McCain running mates as “The Next Cheney” (if only); if you want to see there are pages dedicated to Bobby Jindal, Mitt Romney, John Thune, Tom Ridge, Tim Pawlenty, Carly Fiorina, Charlie Crist, Fred Smith and Eric Cantor. Lest there be any doubt as to the origins of this site, there’s a disclaimer | Read More »
Bush Not Running? That’s OK, They Can Pretend That He Is!
I guess it shouldn’t surprise me that Barack Obama wants to use the DNC Convention to paint John McCain as a carbon copy of President Bush but that is the latest report. Since George Bush isn’t running for President, and I know that surprises a number of my liberal friends, the second best thing to do is pretend that he is. This has been a | Read More »
