Of press bias and polls

    The last 2 weeks have been an education for those of us who did not believe in press bias. The speed and ferocity with which the national media have pounced on every misstep and inconsistency by the McCain/Palin campaign has been shocking. A man with a lifelong reputation for honesty and integrity has been portrayed a liar based on press indignation with two minor web | Read More »

    Racism in the race

    While there are a lot of issues concerning Obama that can show him to be the empty suit that he is, I want to address in particualar the double standard in this race, when it comes down to race. The reality is this:IF John McCain, or Sarah Palin belonged to a radical church for 21 YEARS that espoused the same kind of racist hatred, outrageous | Read More »

    Gov. Palin, there’s an angry mob here to lynch you…

    All American political campaigns are nasty, and that is to be expected. In the 19th century, for instance, vote buying, extortion, libel, beatings, intimidation, and even murder, were all par for the course. So I don’t expect genteel behavior when it comes to the natural man’s quest for political power. But as I’ve been cruising the web of late I’ve been struck by the intensity | Read More »

    Make-or-break time for the Troopergate controversy?

    Putting aside tabloid fluff and other deranged personal attacks (H/T) that will soon find themselves exiled to the wilderness, there still remains the only potential derail to Palin, as it deals with a matter of public behavior: the legislative star chamber investigation into the Trooper firings, a matter which was known before Palin was chosen.Looks like things may be coming to a boil on this | Read More »

    Democratic Voter Fraud, Party-Funded Lies and Fear-Mongering (with an assist from the MSM)

    Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com.Over the last week, Michigan residents received a crash course in exactly how far Michigan Democrats are willing to go to win an election and exactly how eager the mainstream media is to accommodate them.  Character, honesty and integrity weren’t just tossed out the window towards a waiting dumpster, they were forcefully thrown through plate-glass, shredding them to ribbons on | Read More »

    The Bush Brush

    Charlie Gibson tried it in each interview. Maureen Dowd did with her recent comments in the NYT Like W., Sarah has the power of positive unthinking.In fact it is difficult not to read or listen to the usual suspects formally known as the mainstream media without hearing or reading of the attempt to link her with “Bush thinking” or as they refer to it in | Read More »

    Whose minding the children?

    *How many children does Obama have? How many children does Biden have?*How many children does McCain have? How many children does Palin have?There is one thing all of these candidates have in common, well make that two. McCain, Palin, Obama and Biden have children and all of them are involved in politics. Yet only one of the above has been questioned on the ability to | Read More »

    What Dem’s are good at…

    History shows they arent good at winning the Whitehouse, but they are quite good at makiing certain whoever does win will take office with the stench of a gutter like campaign. Bush could never be a uniter since he took office with at least half the country hating his Texas guts. True, the election fracas had a lot to do with that, but the Dems | Read More »

    Grading Palin… and grading us?

    I was struck this morning by a comment made in passing that really shows a central problem in how the Left and the MSM (OK, so that’s the same thing) think of everyone that isn’t, well, the Left or the MSM (or a D.C. insider, Blue State resident, or Hollywood “expert” like Matt Damon).I was listening to N.P.R’s Morning Edition to see what the reactions | Read More »

    Palin’s Secret

    When she accepted the nomination, they scoffed. They thought the Republicans were desperate, and perhaps we did too. Obama thought it was too easy, so he told the Americans far and wide that Palin’s family was off-limits.But American women everywhere quickly realized that this was no average female politician. Her name? Governor Palin! And even though she struggles with 5 kids and a hubby, she | Read More »

    Why hasn’t the press asked Obama if he is qualified to be President

    By now, everyone here probably knows that I seriously question Governor Palin’s ability to step in “on day one” and be President if necessary. Although I think she is a very intelligent person, I still don’t think she has the experience necessary.Perhaps we can all just agree to disagree on that.But the thing is, Senator Obama is no more qualified than Palin to be President. | Read More »

    Media Doing the Work of the Obama Opposition Research Team

    Jon Henke posts the audio of a phone call made by a Wasilla, Alaska process server, who has been deluged by calls from the media, seeking salacious and damaging material about Sarah Palin:The media is supposed to get to the truth, but in the case of Sarah Palin, all they want is the dirt. As Henke says: This is the stuff that opposition researchers usually | Read More »
