What to do with Phil Robertson

December 19, 2013

By now, you’ve probably heard about A&E’s suspension of “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson because of a few remarks he made about gay men.  During an interview with GQ, the hokey backwoods Robertson said the following controversial statement after a long segment on God, religion, and the ’60s: It seems like, to me, a vagina [...]

Maybe It Is Just a Flesh Wound, But It Must Be Treated

November 14, 2012

Intense brainstorming by the losing side is something that should, and usually does, take place immediately following an election.  Last week, I was unusually pessimistic about the election results because of what I thought they said about what we as a country were now willing to accept.  If you thought my take was depressing, you [...]

Bobby Jindal Endorses Perry While Romney Secures Highly Coveted T-Paw Endorsement

September 13, 2011

Campaign endorsement season is finally upon us.  Yesterday, both republican frontrunners in the 2012 race received noteworthy endorsements.  Rick Perry landed an endorsement from Bobby Jindal, the popular Governor of Louisiana while Mitt Romney earned the endorsement of his former rival Tim Pawlenty.  You remember him, the guy who called Romney’s health care plan “Obamneycare?” [...]

Conservatives Are Falling Into Obama’s Trap

March 9, 2009

What is it with Conservatives and Republicans that we are so ready to throw our own overboard at the first sign of a misstep, mistake, controversial statement, or slightest deviation from Conservative Orthodoxy?  I’m not talking here about our reasonable disgust with the Lincoln Chafees and Arlen Specters of the world, or even our disdain [...]

Mitt Romney won the 2012 campaign’s first test by winning today’s straw poll at the 2009 Conservative Political Action Conference.  It was Romney’s third consecutive CPAC straw poll victory.  Bobby Jindal placed second while Sarah Palin and Ron Paul tied for third.

Biden’s Rhetoric vs. Jindal’s Results

February 26, 2009

Bobby Jindal’s response to Obama’s pseudo State of the Union address may have been more effective than the pundits give him credit for.  Why else would the White House send out Vice President Joe Biden to try to undermine Jindal’s credibility?  According to the Vice President, people shouldn’t take Jindal’s arguments about the proper size [...]

Goodbye 2008!

December 31, 2008

I’m kind of glad to see this year go.  While fun was had, disappointments and external events put a particular funk on this year as I look back on it. The biggest story of the year happened on my birthday when America chose to embrace our new status as an Obama Nation.  We deserve what [...]

November 25, 2008

During the 1993-1994 period when Republicans were out of power in Washington DC, much of the Conservative innovation which contributed to the Republican Revolution in 1994 occurred at the state level, through innovations put forth by GOP governors.  Today, we are back again to where we were as a party in 1993-1994.  It will be [...]

Too Soon for McCain’s Veep Pick?

July 23, 2008

Word leaked out the other day from Robert Novak, that McCain may make public his selection for his Vice Presidential candidate this week.  I believe this would be a bad idea if McCain goes through with it:  he wants to make a choice which counters Obama’s pick to ensure the strongest Republican ticket; with Obama [...]
