So.....what now? Who will the press corps gripe about. Who will the Post and the New Yorker lampoon in their comic strips? Who will we blame if a hurricane strikes the nation again? Who's interesting language nuances will we degrade and insult? Who will the left wingers whine about when the going gets tough? Who will the movie stars disrespect openly? What will we do when he DOESN'T solve all of the problems? What will we think in 100 days....in 200?........in 1460 days? What if a comet strikes ...

 Well, no prizes for guessing, you get some blindly dictatorial American laws for the globe. In fact, this time, President Bush and his ‘Administration’ have surpassed all the limits of deforming any civilised society by claiming that they can ‘kidnap’ any foreigner, if they are wanted for crimes in the United States of America. What more, they have the sanction of their Supreme Court as well. In fact, till now it was assumed that American law permits kidnapping only...

"Republican Party officials say they will try next month to pass a resolution accusing President Bush and congressional Republican leaders of embracing "socialism," underscoring deep dissension within the party at the end of Mr. Bush's administration. Those pushing the resolution, which will come before the Republican National Committee at its January meeting, say elected leaders need to be reminded of core principles. They said the RNC must take the dramatic step of wading into policy ...

Tonight's debate scored by me. Q 1: How do you feel about the financial bail out package. Barack: 9. Good answer. McCain:  5. Lame.   Q 2: What do you think of the plan. Barack: 6. He says he warned against this disaster. A bit lame in that he blames Republicans exclusively.  McCain: 8. Better. Barack (followup): 8 articulate. McCAin (followup): 5. Cliches.   Q 3: What should we do about government? McCain: 7. ...

I had the priviledge to sweat for Sarah yesterday along with about 60,000 other people who came from near and far to catch a glimpse of this little lady as she came to our neighborhood.  It was worth it.  Here's a few observations on the day. It was very crowded.  More than was expected showed up to this party.  Many came hours early to get a good spot only to find themselves in a very long line that snaked around the town for about two miles.  When we biked into...

Joe Biden had the audacity to say that it's time for the rich (those making $250k or more according to him) to be more patriotic and pay more taxes for the sake of the country. Of course, what Biden, like most clueless government types doesn't realize is that the government is an anchor, a parasite living off the earnings of patriotic Americans who actually make our country successful. The more we tax, the more we bog down our economy. Hence, a responsible government should try to be a...

The headlines in our local paper were big.  PALIN IS COMING TO THE VILLAGES!  So today I got my four allowed free tickets and I'll be heading down to the square to see Sarah Palin in person on Sunday.  I heard they are expecting about 30,000 people.  Where in the world are they going to put them? They're telling us to drive to the square on our golf carts. Parking is going to be a problem.   We are going to do better than that.  We're going to bike.  ...

Ah, The Daily Show.  The closet thing to actual political journalism anywhere these days.   I'm leaning towards the latter rather than the former.
ANCHORAGE, Alaska - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told ministry students at her former church that the United States sent troops to fight in the Iraq war on a "task that is from God." In an address last June, the Republican vice presidential candidate also urged ministry students to pray for a plan to build a $30 billion natural gas pipeline in the state, calling it "God's will." ... "Our national leaders are sending them out on a task that is from God," she said. "That's what we have to make...
I don't like McCain. I make no bones about it. I am not inclined to vote for him and I still don't plan to. But this article at RightWingNews really does speak for me pretty well.   However, the real problem with Obama isn't just that he's incompetent, it's that he's an incompetent who seems to think he's a genius. Never has a man so unaccomplished been so overly proud of his non-achievements. Compare him to say, Jimmy Carter, who was far too naive to be President a...

So for the last week and a half, we've been privy to all sorts of pro-Palin articles on this site, people praising her to the high heavens for no apparent reason. Consequently (and since so few of you are willing to take honest, critical looks are your new poster-girl), I have a couple of questions for all you die-hard Palin fans: How does her chocolate starfish taste, anyway? Is it everything you'd hoped it would be when you latched on? Frankly, given the amount of sucking upon it y...

Now, I'll admit that as a party, Republicans are a mite too quick to fight. In fact, if you look back, McCain's kinda been attacking Obama first (or at least his ads have been on my TV first). However, when you look at it, would you rather have a pacifist, or a Repugilist? I mean, the Republicans may fight too much, but do the Democrats fight enough? Do they actually push for what they want (outside of the bedroom?), or do they just stamp "yea", "nay", or "present", and go back to sleep. Republi...
I've written about this many times in the past but one of the more off putting features of American liberals is their smugness.  If you disagree with them it is only because you are either ignorant or evil. This tends to result in them losing elections. Often. I just read a very interesting blog about this that I thought I'd share here: This conceit of liberals -- which sometimes I think is all that sustains them, and all that keeps them liberals in the first place -- that liberals ha...
