Crazy Christian Conservative


    Could the Missouri Carnahan dynasty be at an end?

    It’s been a good week to be a Republican in Missouri.  Senator-elect Roy Blunt soundly defeated MO Secretary of State Robin Carnahan, beating her by 13 percentage points statewide, and winning every county in Missouri except St. Louis (city and county) and Jackson (Kansas City).  Republican candidates scored wins in most parts of the state except the Democrat strongholds mentioned above, where incumbents such as | Read More »

    The Condescender-in-Chief

    Two years into the Obama presidency, and this kind of thing really shouldn’t be a surprise. Obama told the several dozen donors that he was offering them his “view from the Oval Office.” He faulted the economic downturn for Americans’ inability to “think clearly” and said the burden is on Democrats “to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling.” The President believes | Read More »

    Looks like Robin Carnahan’s friends aren’t getting their money’s worth

    Today, the Washington Post’s columnist Chris Cillizza makes a somewhat odd claim in his column “The Fix”: Missouri Secretary of State Robin Carnahan’s (D) Senate campaign will announce $2.1 million raised in the third quarter, a campaign source tells The Fix, bringing it near parity with Rep. Roy Blunt’s (R) more than $2 million raised. Outside groups are spending heavily for Blunt, but this remains | Read More »

    Robin Carnahan “running an outdated 2006 campaign”

    In the 2010 campaign for U.S. Senator from Missouri, it’s ironic that MO Sec’y of State Robin Carnahan would criticize Rep. Roy Blunt for connecting her to President Barack Obama, when she seems intent on connecting Blunt to a GOP congress that hasn’t existed for four years.  This, in an election that has been identified by virtually every major media outlet as a “referendum on | Read More »

    For he must be traveling on, now…. (Open Thread)

    Leonard Skinner died yesterday.  When I announced that to a group of my friends this morning, one of them said “Wow, you mean the teacher?”  That was an immediate indication that this guy was probably around my age, as Mr. Skinner is/was a rather obscure part of 70s pop culture. If you clicked the link above, you’ll see that Leonard Skinner was the man whose | Read More »

    The vaunted youth vote gets a cold dose of reality

    This video, from the U.S. Senate campaign of Rep. Roy Blunt, who is running against MO Sec’y of State Robin Carnahan for Sen Kit Bond’s seat, caught my eye for several reasons: I went to the University of Missouri, which is strongly represented in the vid One of my kids is a college student, and the other one soon will be I was amused by | Read More »

    Robin Carnahan loves her some bailout

    Hearken back to a couple of weeks ago, when I noted how MO Sec’y of State Robin Carnahan has attempted to use TARP as a way to smear MO Congressman Roy Blunt.  Blunt and Carnahan are seeking the U.S. Senate seat being vacated by Missouri’s Sen. Kit Bond.  One of the sources for that post, an article from the Sedalia (MO) Democrat, noted that Ms. | Read More »

    What if the tables were turned?

    Yesterday, members of the Afghanistan Taliban murdered ten Christian doctors in cold blood, execution-style. These doctors, from several countries and church backgrounds (including my own denomination) had been providing medical services to Afghan villagers. They hiked for more than 10 hours over rugged mountains — unarmed and without security — to bring medical care to isolated Afghan villagers until their humanitarian mission took a tragic | Read More »

    The Obama Jobs Program: Ship ‘em to Sri Lanka

    In June, 2010, there were roughly 14 million unemployed Americans.  President Obama has made much noise about saving or creating jobs, jobs bills, and extending unemployment benefits.  My dad used to say “actions speak louder than words”, and Barack Obama’s actions belie his claims to care about creation of jobs.  Case in point:  training programmers in Sri Lanka to offshore American jobs. Despite President Obama’s | Read More »

    History, FTW!

    George Santayana is oft-quoted for his statement “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it”.  It seems that those in the Obama administration are serial abusers of this violation.  If for some reason you doubted this, look no farther than this political cartoon from 1934: Read the sign in the lower left closely.  Sound familiar? There is some question as to whether | Read More »


    TARP, Roy, Robin and the Republicans

    Things looked very grim for the financial markets in 2008.  Things were occurring very rapidly and few really understood what was going on during those weeks (here is a reminder of the turmoil that went on during that period)  I saw a number of articles and emails that indicated that there could be a massive collapse of financial institutions that made the 1929 Black Tuesday, | Read More »

    The Restful President

    I sure wish the RNC would run spots like this: I think he should be clear about it, too. This is your open thread for the day… UPDATE: Lookee here – now it seems that our Restful President is going to add basketball to his “We will not rest” arsenal.  I’m thinking maybe this game won’t occur in Cleveland…

    Roy Blunt’s ad campaign begins

    MO Congressman Roy Blunt is running for the MO Senate seat currently occupied by Christopher “Kit” Bond, who will be retiring at the end of his current term. I’ve been fairly regular in criticisms of Blunt’s Dem opponent, Robin Carnahan, a typical leftist Obama acolyte. But today we’ll just stick (mostly) to a simple post of the spot that is kicking off Rep. Blunt’s advertising | Read More »

    “ObamaCare – Three Months of Broken Promises”

    A couple of weeks ago I gave the GOP a hard time about not paying close enough to the disastrous ObamaCare legislation and allowing Americans to forget about what has been rammed down our throats by the Democrats.  Today, House Minority Leader John Boehner’s office published a thorough analysis of the “Three Months of Broken Promises” brought on by this abomination, and in doing so, | Read More »

    Rep. Joe Barton: Right, but at the wrong time

    By now we’ve all heard about Rep. Joe Barton’s apology to BP for the government’s “shakedown” of forcing them to fund a $20B slush fund to pay for the Gulf oil spill damages.  On the surface, Barton’s statement was correct, and he should not have had to apologize for it.  But, he should never have said a word in the first place.  Sometimes it is | Read More »
