Turn Out The Lights The Party’s Over…
In 1992 the Democrats had six major candidates for the Presidential nomination. At the beginning the two front runners were Bob Kerrey Senator from Nebraska and Al Gore the Senator from Tennessee. Bob Kerrey was the first of the big named candidates to bow out of the race. The last man standing in the Democrat primaries was a little known governor from Arkansas. Kerrey had | Read More »
Election Advice from a Therapist
Up until a couple of weeks ago, I was feeling pretty good about McCain’s chances. He was doing pretty well in the important battleground states, Palinmania was still sweeping the nation, and Obama couldn’t seem to find his legendary voice. I was beginning to think that, perhaps, despite all the naysaying and the gloom-and-doom about Republicans’ chances this year, McCain is the guy who can | Read More »
Win By Loosing.
I don’t mind when people disagree with me. I really don’t. Diversity of opinion is what makes this country great, one can learn a great deal from their ideological opponents even if it is just trying to figure out how they think. However dreary of hyperbolic their diagnosis of the ills of our country are, I can live with people who have a liberal opinion. | Read More »

Breaking: The Sun Expected to Rise Today
Cross-posted on Right Michigan at www.RightMichigan.com. After yesterday’s McCain backed sucker-punch to the collective Michigan gut I think we can all probably use a little bit of good news this morning. A little cheering up. Stiffen that upper lip, bucky, the world hasn’t completely gone to crap. Just take a look at Lansing! I know… shock. Awe. Something positive in the Capitol City. The Associated | Read More »
Is it time to give up?
The entire election has changed tones since recent events in the financialworld have gotten the public’s attention. At least, in my view it has. Untilthe last week, I have believed that regardless of the Congressional outlookthis year, the Presidential race would be close, with a slight advantage tous, the same as the last two Presidential elections. Not anymore, though. I think we have given up | Read More »
What Would a Third Party Be Like?
If things are as they appear (and of course they seldom are), we were all treated today to the spectacle of the American equivalent of what a third Party would be like. We had the Democrats and the Senatorial Republicans, with the House Republicans (perhaps joined by some House Democrats) as the Third Party. What remains to be seen is whether they plan to use | Read More »
I challenge democrat Pelosi!
Sept. 28, 2008 Pelosi’ Progress Report Before the Vote Pelosi made herself look bad. Pelosi, making herself look bad, offered many sound bits attacking Bush and the Administration for the economic mess our country is in. She stated: “The party is over” for Wall Street Execs and CEO’s. Gave misleading kudos to the democrats for tossing the pork out of the Bill; and wrongfully insinuating | Read More »
Barney Frank just stepped up to defend Pelosi
She was asked about her stupid comments about Republicans and how her mouth hurt the passage of the bailout. Barney took the question for her. Can someone point out the stupidity of slandering the Administration and Republicans with 8 years of failure, but from the other side of your mouth saying that everyone has to get behind the Administration’s bill? Can the House Republicans step | Read More »
Thrown Under the Bus Again
Under the Bus Again? Thank goodness, John McCain cares about his country and refuses to listen to a fallen Republican and Democratic government – those who are spending all their idle time pointing a finger at this great man might consider joining him and being a part of the group who will restore our Nation. The Republicans and the Democratics have placed the welfare of | Read More »
Who Exactly Wanted to Invest Social Security in Stock Market?
The Democrats are hoping to use the turmoil in the stock market to scare seniors in a typical election year smear. They’re charging that if Republicans had their way, all their Social Security would be “tied up” in the stock market. Of course, it is simply not true, as this article in The Politico shows. However, there is one politician who promoted investing Social Security | Read More »
Why I got a haircut and became a Republican
(Me, circa 1997) I used to be a left-wing Democrat. I was an intern for Carol Moseley-Braun. I studied with Cornel West. I voted for John Kerry and Al Gore–and in 1996 I even wrote in Ralph Nader rather than vote for Clinton, who was too centrist for me. Then I grew up.

Democrats Ignore Need for More American Energy
High gas prices are hard to ignore, but somehow Democratic leaders in the House and Senate are doing just that. For months the American people have been calling on Congress to do something about energy costs that are straining American families’ budgets and driving up the price of everything from food to airline tickets. Republicans have been listening. Senate Republicans have spent the past several | Read More »
