Someone should ask Russ Feingold about the privacy of Americans

    Earlier this year, Sen. Russell Feingold issued a statement to denouce warrantless surveillance of Americans.

    The Best Answer To A Question Is An Attack On The Questionnaire For Democrats

    Government Computers Used to Probe Joe the Plumber Background

    Has anyone else noticed this item reported by the Columbus Dispatch which is now on the Drudge Report? The Attorney General spokesperson is playing Sgt. Schultz. They are trying to determine where this all came from.

    Democrats Abuse Government To Go After Joe the Plumber

    A couple of weeks ago, Michael Barone wrote Obama supporters who found the campuses congenial and Obama himself, who has chosen to live all his adult life in university communities, seem to find it entirely natural to suppress speech that they don’t like and seem utterly oblivious to claims that this violates the letter and spirit of the First Amendment. In this campaign, we have | Read More »

    The big “O” stands for “Orwell”

    “Gosh, I don’t know how they got in, it must have been one of those pesky test accounts…” This should chill to the bone and Sarah (I don’t think Mac will do it) should beat Big Brother Obama up one coast and down the other with it. Or just give it to Biden, he’ll eat anything… http://www.dispatch.com/live/content/local_news/stories/2008/10/24/joe.html?sid=101 (I don’t post much – you folks say | Read More »

    Joe the Plumber for Congress?

    I think I am supposed to be skeptical, react to this like I did when Donato Dalrymple said he might seek higher office. But no, listening to the man speak, Joe Wurzelbacher is for real. He told radio talker and fellow cancer survivor Laura Ingraham today that he might run for Congress in 2010. Against Ohio Democrat Marcy Kaptur.

    The Best Line in the 2008 Ads

    Via McCain’s new ad: “Obama wants my sweat to pay to pay for his trillion dollars in new spending.” I love the way this guy delivers that line: If you are not focused on: McCain’s tax, spending and economic policy; Sarah Palin’s magnetism; Joe the Plumber’s populist appeal; Joe Biden’s dunderhead comment about crisis; REAL issues of Obama’s ideology and character; or The GOTV effort | Read More »

    The Forgotten Man

    Why Joe The Plumber Is an Ungrateful Bastard

    Everyone knows by now that Joe the Plumber asked the most sizzling question of the 2008 campaign- how will Obama’s tax policy affect small business? This question was infinitely better than anything asked in any of the debates, their high priced moderators notwithstanding. Predictably, the MSM and lefty blogs, suspecting lèse majesté, went after him and all of a sudden it was Trash Joe Week. | Read More »

    Stay on message – redistribution of wealth

    McCains’ campaign is still lacking a focused message. Davis is thinking of using wright again. HELLO! pick a message and stick to it! *The “spreading the wealth”, “redistribution of wealth” seems to be the most effective message thus far. * McCain should be emailing every journalist/blogger about the many examples of Obama’s “redistribution of wealth”. his past housing policy and failure current housing policy his | Read More »
