Tomorrow morning, the post linked below will either be the most-linked post on the ‘sphere…
“Toast,”, from Malstrom’s Articles News (via AoSHQ). Very little of its arguments are actually new to me – or you, probably – but they’ve been pretty much all been brought together and tied into a neat little bow. Mind you, I think that McCain’s going to squeak through on this one, so I’m obviously biased towards its arguments. It remains to see whether or not | Read More »
Why Did I Vote?
I’m sitting here in Arizona waiting to sleep as I’ve done for the pat 27 years of my life. The “waiting to sleep” part, not always in Arizona. For my entire adult life I’ve spent it at the service of the republic we know as the United States of America in the form of a US Army Soldier. I’ve done that for eight years now | Read More »
About those polls (yeah, never mind. I was either wrong outright or other factors made the point moot.)
I’ve been thinking about the polls that have Obama winning by anything between 1 and 13% tomorrow. Frankly, as many of you know, I don’t believe them. So I started to look at a few things. Namely, I looked at the %s in the polls by which Obama leads and I looked at the historic turnout rates for them. I then turned to the groups | Read More »
Alas Alas, Our Judgement Cometh
Note: I also blog at AOL’s Political Machine, as many of you know. This morning they gave us an assignment which made me pretty grouchy. They wanted every blogger to post their predictions for the electoral college results as well as the house and senate. I suspect they, like the rest of the media, want McCain voters discouraged. They want us to believe it’s all | Read More »
Need some inspiration for tomorrow? Look to Abraham Lincoln
Inspiring words from the first Republican President: Over at the Weekly Standard, Bill Kristol writes: “If Obama wins, we wish him well. But for now, we can only echo the words of the 30-year-old Abraham Lincoln. On December 26, 1839, responding to the confident prediction of one of his political opponents “that every State in the Union will vote for Mr. Van Buren at the | Read More »
An Appeal to Reasons
by Lance Thompson Americans will vote tomorrow in an election which, contrary to all predictions and manipulations, will be a close one. The arguments against Barack Obama and for John McCain are well known and seem to be gaining some traction in the final hours. I’d like to take this space to mention a few reasons to vote for McCain that aren’t commonly addressed First, | Read More »
McCain: paying it forward?
Glenn Reynolds points out this story from Slate that I somehow missed the first time. It’s about McCain and Morris Udall, an Arizona Democrat that helped McCain settle in at the beginning of his political career in Washington DC. The following is from 1996 (Morris Udall died in 1998): For the past few years, Udall has lain ill with Parkinson’s disease in a veterans hospital | Read More »
Think Bankrupting Coal Energy Production Won’t Affect You – Guess Again.
If you are a tree hugger in San Francisco and think that it is good strategy to impose carbon taxes large enough to make production of coal fired energy impractical here is the future you will face. Currently, we produce 49% of all electricity used in the U.S from coal. Under Obama’s plan, with huge taxes imposed on the greenhouse gases emitted from coal, your | Read More »
Fight To Promote, Defend, and Protect Our Constitution
For 219 years, from 1789 to 2008, Americans have been choosing who will defend their liberties and uphold the Constitution of the United States by entrusting one of our own with the presidency of this nation. In a matter of days, Americans will exercise the greatest liberty afforded to them, their right to elect our nation’s next chief defender and preserver of liberty and our | Read More »
Chambliss vs. Martin
This election season, because Barack’s got more money than God, and because of a “righteous wind at their back” here in Georgia, we are getting to see ads this season like never before. I haven’t seen too many Obama ads, but I saw the first one tonight. The blatant dishonesty and misrepresentations in this ad make me wish someone would just use that race card, | Read More »
Do Obama supporters seem a little off? Obama & Al Queida both use hypnosis
PROOF–OBAMABOTS ARE ON KOOLAID. This is the same koolaid served by Al Queida to their suicide bombers. Hypnosis. So how does Al Queida convince suicide bombers to end their lives by killing others? Their heads are completely messed with. Now, how does Obama–mind you logically this man should not even be competative for the White House. The South side of Chicago is in ruins. The | Read More »
The Most Important Thing this Election Day
So the hour is almost upon us, my friends. We’ve been told about the stakes of this election – the same as we have been told every four years – that this is the most important election of our lifetimes. I seriously had my doubts. But now – I believe that cliché has become all too true true. We have a stealth candidate riding the | Read More »
Quote of the day: Jeff Goldstein.
What, you thought that only people on our side were doing it? Think again. If anything, they’re worse. If we lose, we can always tell ourselves, “Shoot. Guess McCain/the GOP ticked off the base/the moderates/Fate itself just a little too much for a little too long.” If Obama loses, his supporters pretty much have no personally acceptable answer to fall back upon except election fraud. | Read More »
Voter suppression attempt?
From an AP article. David Espo reported from Washington. AP’s Ben Feller contributed from Nevada, Nedra Pickler from Chicago, Rodrique Ngowi and Jay Lindsay from Boston and Joan Lowy and Liz Sidoti from Washington. http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20081101/aponelpr/campaignrdp “In Missouri, spokesman Justin Hamilton said Obama’s campaign had agreements with cab companies across the state to provide Election Day rides to the polls for any voter who wanted one. | Read More »
An Ode to Obama
This is an ode to Obama posted on YouTube by an admirer of the Messiah. I post it only as an example of what the leftists really think of their dear leader. Watch it and wonder. Watch it and dread. Watch it and go vote as your conscious demands.
