Most liberal ticket in 40 years?
Four years ago, Republicans made hay out of the fact that the Democrats had a very liberal presidential ticket: Republicans on Capitol Hill jumped on Massachusetts Sen. John Kerry’s pick of a vice presidential candidate — John Edwards, the junior senator from North Carolina — and zeroed in on the candidates’ liberal ratings, among other things.House Speaker Dennis Hastert said, this is “not a balanced | Read More »
Anyone Know the Truth Re: Biden’s Iranian Connections?
In the comments section of this thread on Pajamas Media, I ran across this interesting item from a commenter named Banafsheh. I duplicate much of it here, because there’s no way to link directly to the comments, and the name Banafsheh doesn’t link to email or blog. On Friday, Aug. 22nd, reading David Brooks gushing article about Mr. Biden in the NY Time, made me | Read More »
Frank Rich is an Awful Person
I’m sure that you all remember the so called “disastrous” Senate race of former Virginia Senator George Allen back in 2006. However, it is extremely difficult to run a successful race of any kind when the mainstream media (particularly The Washington Post) is literally waging a jihad against you, but I digress. Anyway, you all are probably wondering what George Allen and Barack Obama have | Read More »
The Obama Nation
If you ever want to witness the difference between the political left and the political right please examine the reviews for Jerome Corsi’s new book The Obama Nation. It has been subjected to a bizarre campaign of 1 Star reviews over the course of the last two days. All of these reviews appear to be ideological in spirit and produced by radicals who have not | Read More »
OHIO ALERT: New Law Could Help Obama; Make It Work For McCain Instead!
We all know that Ohio is a swing state, but now the stakes are going up. Due to recent polls showing a steady McCain lead in the state, Obama’s team had hinted that they might abandon Buckeye-land in favor of places like Virginia.

Better Late Than Never . . .
But Media Matters ought to know that voter fraud doesn’t exist solely in situations where its existence lends justification to various actions undertaken by the presumptive Democratic nominee for President of the United States.
John Rich of Big N’ Rich Pens a McCain Theme Song
With the Leftward bent that most of the music industry has, it’s difficult for a Republican candidate to find a good theme song for their campaign–remember what happened when Reagan tried to use Bruce Springsteen’s “Born in the USA”? Meanwhile, it’s noticeably easier for Democrats to find one for their campaign, like Bill Clinton’s use of Fleetwood Mac’s “Don’t Stop (Thinking About Tomorrow)”. But the | Read More »
CNN’s Questionable Use of Tabloid’s Poll to Tally German Obama Support
How many Germans would vote for Barack Obama for our president? CNN claims to know. During the last weekend that Barack Obama was in Germany, CNN used a graphic on the Wolf Blitzer show that claimed that 72% of Germans preferred Obama with only a mere 11% who favored John McCain. Of course, CNN didn’t think it relevant to mention that only 501 Germans were | Read More »

Breaking news: sunlight shines on global warming (aka climate change) skeptics
The headline at The Drudge Report website,”Group Repping 50,000 Physicists Opens Global Warming Debate…” [linked to dailytech.com] says it all. That headline stems from an article posted in the July, 2008, newsletter of the American Physical Society unit known as Physics and Society. Lord Christopher Monckton of Brenchley wrote the explosive article, ‘Climate Sensitivity Reconsidered,’and the abstract alone is guaranteed to make Al Gore’s blood | Read More »
Of sheep, wolves, sheepdog… and asses.
I’m sure I was not alone in exasperation when Barack Obama called Iraq a “distraction” and said Afghanistan is where we really ought to have been focusing our attention the whole time. Internally I felt like rolling my eyes, giving an impatient sigh, and turning to the recalcitrant child and saying, “Yes, you’re right, there’s nothing stopping you from going to the park now that | Read More »

I blogged earlier today about Carl Mumpower’s announcement that he was putting most of his campaigning activities on hold, and here is an interview he did with a regional radio station: He was recently embargoed from riding on a float in the Coon Dog Parade by a local county party for his stand against the President’s Immigration Policy. One thing is for sure, this campaign | Read More »
MO-GOV: Steelman v. Hulshof for the Republican Nomination [Updated: Kinder Endorses Hulshof]
Since the surprise announcement by Missouri Governor Matt Blunt that he would not seek re-election, the race for the GOP nomination has been anything but ordinary. The two candidates are U.S. Representative Kenny Hulshof (MO-09) and Missouri State Treasurer Sarah Steelman. A local blog, the Relevant Elephant, has conducted interviews with both candidates.

A McCain Stumble On The Campaign Trail
Today, I watched for the second time, a clip prominently running on CNN [the satellite is out to Fox News] in which a woman asks the senator why he voted against a bill that would have provided funding for birth control? Sen McCain is clearly at a loss for words, having been confronted about a vote he has cast — one out of thousands — | Read More »
