It Is Sarah Palin….
After writing blogs, calling everyone I knew in and out of the McCain campaign I have been pushing for Sarah Palin for four months. This is magnificent. So much for a bounce from the messiah. Yesterday I talked very briefly with a senior adviser from the McCain campaign and he let it slip when he said “SHE will surprise many people”. He hung up immediately.
McCain / Palin 08
It’s official, Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain has announced that his pick for Vice Presidential candidate will be Alaska Governor Sarah Palin.
Wake Up GOP Or Else….
The first political campaign I worked in was Barry Goldwater in 1964. It was a great campaign and a spectacular defeat. Over the years I worked in 30 campaigns in 11 States. I was there in 1976 when the GOP was broke and was giving serious consideration to closing the doors. They were backed into a corner. Then a bunch of 20 somethings came up | Read More »

Sarah Palin for VP If We Want To Win….
This election is for all the marbles. Anyone who thinks differently is either naive or delusional. If the Democrats sweep it all they will pass legislation to tie up conservatives and the GOP for the next 50 years. The media has shown itself to be so in bed with the Democrats that no matter what they do or legislation they pass they will excuse it | Read More »
Groan!!! ‘Gang of 10′ becomes ‘Gang of 16′ and GOP rolls over AGAIN!!!!!!!
Just read this on the AP. I keep hoping it’s a mistake. Knowing the jellyfish-like quality of the Senate GOP, it’s likely not. **WASHINGTON – Six more senators on Tuesday joined a bipartisan group of 10 senators backing a bill they say will break the stalemate over offshore drilling in Congress. Three Democrats and three Republicans joined the so-called Gang of 10, making it the | Read More »

It’s important to take a broader look at America’s most corrupt large city: Chicago. (We apologize from the outset,some links no longer exist or passages we quote never existed on the web.)

You’ve Got Keys; We’ll Bring Some Real Noise
The only truly American political convention is a week away in the twin cities. This week the Democrats are going to try to exploit the McCain housing issue by having conventioneers bring and jingle keys. I recall how effective the GOP convention was in 2004 as compared to the Democrats. There was so much unity and organization. The simple chant of “flip flop” pierced through | Read More »
Rush to Reaganism for Grand New Party Comeback
By Mike DeVine, Legal Editor for The Minority Report and The HinzSight Report Originally published in Race42008.com Gamecock sees no inherent contradiction between Rush/Reagan conservatism and most of the themes and policy proposals presented in David Frum’s Comeback nor Ross Douthat and Reihan Salam’s Grand New Party, despite the hype of some columnists and the author’s themselves. Both books, but especially Frum’s, claim to be | Read More »
Senator Ensign Slams Fellow GOP Senators
Josh KurtzRoll Call In a stunning admission, National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman John Ensign (Nev.) on Friday morning blasted his GOP colleagues for not doing enough to help the committee financially, and he said he would have to scale back the NRSC’s independent expenditure budget as a result. “I recently challenged my colleagues to step up to the plate and help me provide the resources | 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 »
The Beauty of Sarah Palin
I’m not talking about the mere physical attractiveness of Alaska’s governor, though she has been blessed with an abundance of that gift. Palin was a competitor in the 1984 Miss Alaska beauty pageant after being named Miss Wasilla earlier that year, where she also won Miss Congeniality honors. No, what I’m dicussing here is beauty in the political sense – as in the beauty of | Read More »

Time To Cast Your Vote For VP….
I am not a social conservative. Although I am personally pro-life it is not a deal breaker for me if John McCain picks a pro-choice running mate. I do believe it should be a fresh face. I believe it should say now this is a ticket for change without having to say it. It should be ground breaking. The day after the DNC’s coronation of | Read More »
Silent and Waiting
Contrary to “pundit wisdom” and media hype, America is not really aching for a leftwards turn. The Republican Party suffers from a pervasive and inexplicable failure to identify some key points of distinction between themselves and their Democratic opponents on issues that speak clearly and forcefully to the public consciousness – and to run with them. I.e. to put and keep those issues in the | Read More »
