    GOP’s Lame Web Effort Still Stinks – Can RedState Do Better?

    I’m afraid Meghan McCain still has it right:  The Republican party isn’t exactly Internet savvy. That’s no secret. This has been a source of personal frustration for me for a very long time. On Feb 1, I posted about the lame effort the GOP had tried at myGOP.com.  18 days later, one can still not log in at elronaldo.gop.com, nor recover a password, nor do | Read More »

    Follow TN’s lead and kick the RINO traitors out

    When I read in my local paper that the House Republicans in Nashville, after having taken control of the House had one of their own band with the Democrats to vote in a RINO for speaker I was not surprised. The plague of Republicans in Name Only is a pox on all our houses in the GOP. When I read that the party voted Kent | Read More »

    Republican Celebrities; More of Them Than You Think

    A Plea to Anyone at GOP.com

    In my 14+ years of using the internet, I’ve never come across such a problem. I can’t be the only one affected by this. It’s like I’m in the Twilight Zone. I cannot log in to gop.com. I’ve been trying for WEEKS. From different computers even, at home and at work. I enter my email address and password, click “Go” and nothing happens. And I mean NOTHING. The | Read More »

    S.P.E.C.T.E.R.

    He did it again. But no Republican should have been surprised. Sen. Arlen Specter has a long history of stabbing his party’s conservatives in the back. Ronald Reagan was one of the first to feel the point of his blade: At the end of his first term, he voted against the Reagan Administration in two bitter, losing battles: to make William Bradford Reynolds associate attorney general, and Jefferson Sessions | Read More »

    Proposed amendment to the Senate’s stimulus

    (which I am sending to GA Sen. Saxby Chambliss) Every federal taxpayer dollar sent to states and local governments (to get them out of the hole they created) must be matched by $3 in actual cuts at given government’s level.  Get a $1 for every $3 you cut.  Right your ship, cut spending, and move on. If other states and localities are refusing federal bailout | Read More »

    Safe, Independent, and Free

    Never a day goes by that another commentator does not fill our ears with prophesies of doom and gloom for the future of our nation and our party.  They look at the mess we’re in and just throw their hands in the air and say “I guess the government’s going to have to bail us out.”  They look at the election returns and say that | Read More »

    Sarah Palin endorses Rick Perry for reelection

    The Texas Republican gubernatorial primary race has just gotten more interesting. The Dallas Morning News is reporting that Sarah Palin has endorsed Texas Governor Rick Perry for reelection.

    Steele: Get the RNC Web Site Fixed!

    Open letter to the eCampaign folks at www.gop.com Alas, the GOP web site at www.gop.com has a few good ideas, but they are currently poorly, poorly implemented.  The GOP has a pretty fair idea in allowing one to set up your own web site/blog at whatever-your-id.gop.com – however their whole platform is so buggy, it’s going to result in more harm than good.  I’ll just hit | Read More »

    (UPDATED 2-25-09) The RINO Congressional Chorus from “The Pirates of DC”

    Special thanks to ‘civil_truth’ for his input, and WS Gilbert for his lyrical genius.
