Meghan McCain: Just Stop It

    I can’t understand this dynasty/legacy mentality of some politicians and their children. Just what is it that makes Chelsea Clinton or Meghan McCain think they are the voice of their parents’ political parties? I can only wonder that maybe they believe they are heirs to nobles in some gotti kingdom of politics. Whatever the case may be, Meghan McCain cries for the limelight again. In | Read More »

    Tea Party Two: The Town Hall

    This just in from Politico’s Andy Barr: Hoping to recapture the grassroots energy of last month’s “tea parties,” Republican Govs. Mark Sanford of South Carolina and Rick Perry of Texas will host a tele-town hall Thursday that’s being dubbed “Tea Party 2.0.” The Republican Governors Association said it is expecting 30,000 people to participate in the town hall, which will take place roughly one month | Read More »

    Sunday Commentary

    Today, aside from being Mother’s Day, is a day when I sit by the window with a pencil in one hand, and a biography on Thomas Jefferson in the other. I’ve been reading the same biography on Jefferson for four months now and each time seems like the first; in part his views and his vision of America never gets old to me. Now, back | Read More »

    Colin Powell and the direction of the Republican Party

    Cross-posted at Wellsy’s World. I have a great deal of respect for Colin Powell’s military career and his devotion to his country. As a politician, however, he has proven to be somewhat of a disappointment, and the recent commotion regarding his comments about the GOP further underscore that belief. Much hay has been made of Powell’s remarks he made to a group of corporate security | Read More »

    Fed Up

    I am fed up.    I am fed up with people’s opinions.  That old saying that an opinion is like a (censored) every one has one and everyone’s stinks is more true than I can ever say.  It seems that everyone wants to express their opinion and their opinion is the right way.  It is a  cacophony that is driving me nuts.  We should take the GOP in | Read More »

    The Party of NO

    Promoted from diaries by Dan Spencer. “Always vote for principle, though you may vote alone, and you may cherish the sweetest reflection that your vote is never lost.”-John Quincy Adams The media and the Democrats call us the party of no. They say we’re standing in the way of history by opposing the president. Well, I think about the quote I pasted above and I | Read More »

    Where is ‘the center’ on Powell’s political map?

    For Secretary of State Colin Powell, who in 2008 actively supported the ticket National Journal listed as 2007’s two most liberal senators, is once again advising the Republican Party to move to the center. I wonder if he means that if the GOP had moved even more to the center than it has, he would not have worked for a ticket that is moving the | Read More »

    Conservatives Need to Move Left, Deny Creationism, Embrace Evolution, Abandon God, and Accept Global Warming

    What’s about 6’5, drools, has a constant hard on for Barack Obama, used to be an alcoholic and runs his mouth spewing dribble ( and spittle) on a daily basis for a failing cable “news” network? Any guesses? Chris Matthews the detestable drunken drone was at it again on Hard On. This time he was prodding Mike Pence on whether or not he believed in | Read More »

    Rebuilding the GOP: The Committeeman Project

    I firmly believe today that former Ohio Secretary of State Ken Blackwell’s Conservative Resurgence Plan was the best thing to come out of the race for the RNC Chairmanship earlier this year. With its focus on precinct-level organization, it not only provided the best blueprint for rebuilding the Party in locales where it has completely collapsed but also the often neglected aspect of strengthening it | Read More »

    I’m On CNN/Live today after noon

    CNN dropped me a line and they’ve asked me to appear once again on their noon time (eastern time) “Blogger Bunch” segment on CNN/Live over on the Net side of the operation. That either means the last time I was on I made the conservative side look like idiots and they want a repeat of that…. or I did OK last time! Ha, ha. Well, | Read More »

    Hatin’ On the GOP, The National Council for a New America and YOU

    Yeah. I’m as mad at the GOP as you are — then again I have been for a long time, not just lately. So, in the hope that something good could come of our losses, I listened in on Eric Cantor’s conference call launching the National Council for a New America (NCNA) project and you all saw my immediate report. I patiently listened to Representative | Read More »
