    Interview with Christine O’Donnell… *More* Of Her Own Words

    Today is Christine O’Donnell’s big day. It’s Chris Coons’ big day. More importantly, it’s Delaware’s big day. The people of Delaware will finally have THEIR say, now that all the pundits and so-called experts and professional pragmatists have finally been made to sit down, shut up, and watch as the will of the people unfolds. In Part I of my commentary regarding a recent conservation | Read More »

    Thanking Democrat Ambition For Giving The Win To O’Donnell In Delaware

    A friend suggested tonight, in light of the story published anonymously (and in exceedingly poor taste) about a bawdy night with Christine O’Donnell (allegedly), that Democrats just can’t help themselves. I agree. I’ll not offer the link here, in the name of good taste, but Google is your friend and it won’t be very difficult to find these allegations. More importantly, spend a little time | Read More »

    And Even STILL I Am Not Allowed To Make A Racial Slur About Our President? After THIS? AYFKM!?!?!?

    I almost don’t have words…almost: He said Republicans had driven the economy into a ditch and then stood by and criticized while Democrats pulled it out. Now that progress has been made, he said, “we can’t have special interests sitting shotgun. We gotta have middle class families up in front. We don’t mind the Republicans joining us. They can come for the ride, but they | Read More »

    Peggy Noonan Heads Home

    'stack consoles Peggy after she sups a Tea Party reality

    I have a love – hate relationship with Peggy Noonan…there-it’s out now. During the early to middle Bush years we were like peas and carrots, Peggy and I. Mid to late years, and her anti-Iraq equivocation and left-lurches to the dark side? Not so much. Early Obama? Nope…not at all; she was | Read More »

    Christine O’Donnell…In Her Own Words

    We’ve heard it said often enough throughout this midterm campaign cycle; “elections have consequences” and “every vote counts.” I would add…”and no matter how piously they might try, experts and pundits aren’t always right.” This is because, by and large, no one can truly predict how people will react (h/t Sussex County Angel) and what they might do under the right combination of outrage, angst, | Read More »

    O’Donnell v. Coons: The People of Delaware Won

    Christine O’Donnell and Chris Coons debated tonight on the University of Delaware campus. The outcome of this debate, hosted by Delaware First Media and the University of Delaware’s Center for Political Communication, will be judged soon enough by the so-called experts in the world of politics and punditry… but for simple-minded folk such as myself it became clear early on who won tonight. The People | Read More »

    Avast, Me Hearties

    Today’s the day mateys. While the grownups are busy flyin’ back home from Austin, let’s have us a little fun. Go get your name before we make ye walk the plank. Ye knows what to do after that ya miserable lot o’ scalliwags…open thread…yarrrrr.

    Psst…Hey Fellow Republicans…Yeah – *You*

    There is no “I” in team. The primaries are done…some of us like how things turned out, some of us don’t. In the end, we’re here for one thing; to WIN. We’re allowed to fight it out during the playoffs, bet for or against depending on our individual proclivities…but the Super Bowl has been set now, and it’s time to get in line behind the | Read More »

    I Know It’s Not As *Sexy* As DE, But There’s A Primary Today In NH Too

    My Grandmother always used to tell me that if I didn’t have anything nice to say, then I should say nothing at all. Inre: DE, that’s my story and I’m sticking to it. Or…as Forrest Gump would say… “that’s all I got to say about that.” On the other hand, there’s an interesting phenomenon going on in NH…Ovide (as Erick pointed out earlier) is catching | Read More »

    Freedom Works

    I was intending to give a huge shout out to FreedomWorks, and especially to the inimitable Tabitha Hale (who was actually quite impressively successful at herding [like cats] 175 of some of the best bloggers in the country through a series of events collectively called “BlogCon”). Ok, well I guess I just did…but more on the blogcon events and the march itself on another day… | Read More »

    Counting The Deaths On Commander-in-Chief Obama’s Impotent Hands

    I have been watching iCasualties.Org daily for the past 5 weeks. This is not a morbid curiosity; I have done this because I noticed back then that June 2010 was the worst month for US casualties of any so far in the Afghanistan war…ANY point during the 9 years we’ve been fighting it. I noticed, upon further investigation, that the numbers were on pace to | Read More »

    The Fight For *Right*

    It should be lost on NO one how incredibly diverse and divisive the news coverage of events in DC on 8/28 has been; the white guys are talking about God and Country while the black guys are threatening to beat them up over it as they express their intolerance for insufficient levels of freebies and shout out their demands for even more nannyism from the | Read More »

    A Tale Of Two Americas

    It’s in Chapter 1 of Dickens’ “A Tale of Two Cities”, at the very beginning, that we are given a testament to an America Dickens could not possibly have foreseen when he wrote it. The now-famous quote eerily spells out, in fairly accurate detail, just where we find ourselves today living as the backdrop to an Obama-Biden dream world only they and their circle of | Read More »

    Warfighters Come Home

    CentCom is reporting that the last American combat brigade has left Iraq. With all the other news going on around the US, there is an unfortunate likelihood that this will be missed…or used to check off a “to do” from the agenda of a political maelstrom that has run amok in recent days. Whatever might not be said in the days ahead, we owe these | Read More »
