Mrs. Smith Goes To Washington
Let’s get this out here right now. On experience: Sarah Palin runs the largest state in the nation and Barack Obama and Joe Biden combined run their mouths. That’s it in a nutshell.Here we have a mother who is a governor. Throughout her career, Sarah Palin has broken up the good old boy networks. They hate her because she has opened the doors and turned | Read More »
Get Ready for a Lot of Fishmouth From Democrats and Media Over the Next Two Months
So the various talking heads were discussing the Palin selection this morning, and typically, they were trying to come at the thing from all angles. On CNN, John Roberts walked unwittingly into a haymaker when he mused:John Roberts: She has a child with Down’s Syndrome, and care for children like that can take a lot of time. Is there any concern about the balance of | Read More »
How About Some Word Clouds?
What are the key words and phrases from the big speeches at the Democratic Convention? Clayton and I have been making word clouds. You can click them to see a larger version in our Flickr account. Here they are:Hillary:Bill:John Kerry:Joe Biden:
Clinton, Kerry, and Biden Lie for Obama
As a Clinton backer in the 90’s… I’m pretty amazed at the irony of last night’s security line up… A president, a Senator and former presidential candidate, and now a Senator and current VP candidate who all argued for unilateral military action against Iraq, noting France and Russia would never support us, because of the threat they posed with their WMDs… whining about McCain support | Read More »
1. A picture is worth a thousand words.2. No matter how pretty the speeches, the Clintons are still angry.3. The Census takers will love this.4. They are large. They contain multitudes.
John Kerry: Bitter much? The entire speech was a catharsis for Kerry, one that was meant to lay out on full display just how upset he is that he came ever so close to winning the Presidency four years ago . . . and failed. The attacks on Karl Rove were amusing–you just know that Kerry wakes up at nights screaming in fury some epithet | Read More »
DNC Wrap-Up Day Three: Obama Sighted
The Democratic Convention has finally gotten around to discussing the nominee, Sen. Barack Obama. Tonight was a good one for Democrats in general, although the performance of the Vice-Presidential nominee, Sen. Joe Biden, left much to be desired.Credit the Democrats, they managed to turn the Hillary Clinton/Barack Obama nomination controversy into a positive. The roll call of the states provided the backdrop. Sen. Hillary Clinton | 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 »
That Biden Bounce
It amounts to a two point lead . . . for John McCain. And that’s just amongst registered voters. For likely voters, Team Obama may be facing worse numbers.
Two Semi-Conspiratorial Thoughts
Thought #1: The Democratic convention hall is set up with the Illinois and Delaware delegations front and center. Which – especially if they go ahead with a full roll call of the states – would be rather embarrassing if Biden’s own delegation was voting for Hillary. Fortunately for Biden, Obama won Delaware; I wonder, though, if the fear of a similar scene was a motivating | Read More »
Joe Biden’s Record On Trade
Aptly summed up by Dan Griswold: “For a senator who prides himself on his foreign policy experience, Biden’s record shows great ambivalence about American participation in the global economy.”That’s just not good enough anymore. We deserve, as a country, to be more prosperous than people like Joe Biden would have us be.
Dear Dems – Thank you for picking Biden – Love, Repubs

Biden in Plain Sight
Two sets of thoughts on Obama’s selection of Joe Biden as his running mate – more on this to follow:1. Gaffe-Tastic! The initial gut reaction of essentially every Republican I know was giddiness. Biden’s the most gaffe-prone politician I have ever seen, and if you think about the competition that is a truly impressive accolade. Others have spent more time cataloguing Biden’s taste for his | Read More »
