Lurch Gets Frustrated

October 30, 2010

John Kerry recently articulated exactly what he believes about the electorate this cycle, and it frustrates him: “It’s absurd. We’ve lost our minds. We’re in a period of know-nothingism in the country, where truth and science and facts don’t weigh in. It’s all short-order, lowest common denominator, cheap-seat politics.” The biggest laugh regards Lurch’s anger [...]

A Back-Handed Gen X Compliment

October 28, 2010

Is there any other kind?  As a proud member of Generation X, it was neat to read this in Christopher Orlet’s article on the American Spectator blog today: My generation — Generation X — may not have lived through the Great Depression, defeated communism and fascism, and made America the greatest nation on earth, but [...]

James O’Keefe Exposes the NJEA

October 27, 2010

James O’Keefe’s organization, Project Veritas, which promotes “modern day muckrakers,” has a scathing series of videos highlighting the cavalier attitude as well as the abuse and fraud with which the NJEA (the state-level teachers union) has been involved.  Remember, O’Keefe was involved in exposing ACORN’s mischief last year. As a teacher I’m embarrassed by all [...]

There He Goes Again: Jimmy Carter’s Thirty Year Old Wound

October 26, 2010

During his latest rounds on MSNBC, the former worst President in my lifetime Jimmy Carter argued that he would have defeated Ronald Reagan in 1980 if John Anderson had not run as a third party candidate.  How embarrassing. What Carter either forgets or chooses to ignore is that John Anderson was a Republican who Reagan [...]

Democrat Frank Caprio: Obama, Shove It!

October 25, 2010

The three-way governor’s race in Rhode Island between Democrat Frank Caprio, the lovable college cokehead Independent Lincoln Chafee, and Republican John Robitaille is closer than many thought and just got much more interesting.  Real Clear Politics believes this race is really between Caprio and Chafee.  That being said, Chafee (renowned RINO and former Senate colleague [...]

2010 World Series Set — Rangers vs. Giants

October 24, 2010

My sentimental prediction of a Yankees/Phillies rematch of last years’ World Series were proven completely wrong last night when the San Francisco Giants defeated the Phillies 3-2 in Game 6 of the NLCS.  Friday night the Yanks were beaten up by the present World Series nubies, the Texas Rangers, in what turned out to be [...]

Juan Williams Fired from NPR

October 21, 2010

Juan Williams has always been a stand-up guy and proud liberal too (odd combo these days).  I usually disagree with him, but he articulates the Left’s position on most issues and is a valuable source of balance for a network like Fox News which tries to have balanced opinions/coverage. Williams, in fact, is such a [...]

School Kids, Ice Cream, and Voting Democrat in Cincinnati

October 20, 2010

When I heard today that Cincinnati Public Schools allegedly bused students during the school day to polling sites, providing the kids on the bus only the list of Democrat candidates before taking them for ice cream, I have to admit I was not really shocked.  While I am a little surprised at the brazenness of [...]

Didn’t you Hear? The Rent is Too Damn High!

October 19, 2010

In case you missed last night’s New York gubernatorial debate, that’s OK unless you missed this gem from the Rent is Too Damn High Party‘s candidate Jimmy McMillan: Word has it the rest of debate was quite a circus, marginalizing both Cuomo and Paladino through McMillan and a Madam whose most memorable line was this: [...]

Welfare State Burns in France

October 18, 2010

The major issue all Western nations must deal with in the 21st Century is addressing the gap between what our governments (the “welfare state”, “social democracy”, or “big government”) have promised their constituents and those government’s ability to make good on their promises.  No country will be immune, and America’s moment is coming. Not everyone [...]

Meghan McCain Settles Argument Over Delaware Senate Race

October 17, 2010

Meghan Mccain dropped a political bombshell in the Delaware Senate race earlier today.  In front of a national audience on ABC’s “This Week” program, Senator McCain’s little girl opined that Christine O’Donnell was not qualified to represent the people of Delaware in the Senate because she and her friends, like, think O’Donnell, is like, totally [...]

A Portentous Stump in Massachusetts

October 17, 2010

Who would have thought two years ago that President Obama would have to spend time in a busy 2010 midterm election cycle in deep-blue Massachusetts stumping for Governor “Hopes and Dreams” Deval Patrick?  But here we are.  Didn’t work so well for Martha Coakley, though.  However, this time a third party candidate is sucking votes [...]

Circus on the View

October 14, 2010

Alright, so every day is a circus on the View.  Today was just a little louder than normal, at least more normal than the run of the mill Internet excerpt of the View.  You see, I’ve never actually seen an entire episode of the View. Apparently, Bill O’Reilly said something that is essentially true, but [...]

Obama Care Challenge to Proceed

October 14, 2010

A major “return fire” against Obama Care passed a federal judge today, who refused the Administration’s request to dismiss all parts of a multi-state lawsuit against the monstrosity. One of the counts allowed to move forward deals with Obama Care’s unconstitutional insistence that private citizens be forced by the coercive power of the federal government [...]

On the Verge of Victory, Republicans Channel Their Whig Roots

October 13, 2010

The Hill had a poll today which suggested that more than half of Americans are ready for a viable third party, but aren’t quite sure that the most obvious potential is their cup of “tea” (ha!). What’s disturbing about this poll (let’s entertain it for the time being) is that 55% of Republicans want the [...]

Democrat Desperation: Contriving a Foreign Donor Scandal

October 12, 2010

Remember back in 2000 picking on Algore and his latest incarnations?  One swipe in particular was to call him Al “I Didn’t Know It was a Buddhist Temple” Gore.  Also, remember the cloud surrounding Johnny Chung around the Clinton Administration regarding Chinese influence for White House access? So, let me be a little suspicious when [...]

“I Want Your Money,” a Pro-Tea Party Film

October 10, 2010

I’ve seen TV commercials for I Want Your Money in the New York market, but couldn’t quite figure out what angle it was taking.  That was, of course, until I watched the trailer: Pro-Reagan?  Check.  Pro-Tea Party?  Check.  Mercilessly candid about Obamanomics?  Looks like it.  I’m not sure if this documentary will be in wide [...]

Jerry Brown’s “Whore” Issue

October 9, 2010

Word came out that someone on California Democrat gubernatorial candidate Jerry Brown’s staff referred to his Republican opponent Meg Whitman as a “whore” on a voicemail no one thought was still being recorded.  A weak obligatory apology was issued, but believe it or not, the next day NOW came out and endorsed him!  Well, they [...]

9.6%: The Last Unemployment Figure Before the Election

October 8, 2010

No surprise here — the unemployment rate for September stayed steady at 9.6%.  That is, of course, until the figures are “revised” later this month or perhaps even after November 2. I’ve got more hope than change in my pocket since the Obama Nation began imposing this latest ill-fated Keynesian experiment on America.  My “hope” [...]

The Fruition of McDonald’s Obama Care Threat

October 7, 2010

So, here we are:  McDonald’s spreads rumors about dumping 30,000 employees from their health insurance because of Obama Care, then in less than two weeks McDonald’s and 28 other businesses get a one-year waiver to keep their employees insured! Obama Care the law of the land, but with such glaring inconsistencies, screwy tax loopholes, complete [...]

Randy Moss Traded to the Vikings

October 6, 2010

After the first game of the season, all-time great wide receiver Randy Moss said that this would be his last season with the New England Patriots.  This morning word came out that he was being traded to the Minnesota Vikings for a mere third round draft pick… today! As a Pats fan my emotions are [...]

Contrast in Connecticut Over How to Create a Job

October 5, 2010

Last night, Fox sponsored a debate between Democrat Dick Blumenthal and Republican Linda McMahon for Chris Dodd’s old Senate seat.  During the debate McMahon asks her opponent how one creates a job.  I don’t think anyone could find a more stark contrast between the lib perspective and the conservative one: We all know who won [...]

UK EcoNazi Ad a Little Nuts

October 4, 2010

I thought this bizarre ad from across the pond needed to have one more voice added to the echo chamber in criticizing its inept creepiness.  It’s not funny-creepy like the “Green Police” Super Bowl ad was.  Nope, this is the kind of ad that EcoNazis think might be somehow clever, but to the unbrainwashed masses [...]

Nicky, Meg, Jerry and the Future of California

October 3, 2010

At the second California gubernatorial debate between Meg Whitman and Jerry Brown, the issue of illegal alien housekeeper Nicky Diaz came up early and often.  Since Univision sponsored the debate, Whitman should have known this was coming and should have prepared for Jerry Brown to tie every single issue he could back to it. As [...]

Rush Limbaugh on Sunday’s Family Guy

October 2, 2010

Yes, Rush Limbaugh decided to lend his voice to an episode of Family Guy, which will air 9pm this Sunday! I’m watching, especially because the episode takes aim at Brian.  See, Brian used to be my favorite character — Peter’s dog, who drinks too much and has a dry sense of humor.  He was great!  [...]

Emanuel Leaves the Obama White House

October 1, 2010

When I heard Rahm Emanuel was leaving the Obama White House as Chief of Staff before Election Day and at roughly around the same time as other administration officials I could only think of one thing — Rahm’s most infamous quote: Looks like Rahm is taking advantage of the President’s economic credibility crisis potentially all [...]
