Election 2008

Election Shenanigans in Philadelphia

November 4, 2008

It may be early, but the Democrats are already up to their old shenanigans.  According to Amanda Carpenter, some Republican Election Board members have been removed from polling stations in Philadelphia.  With Pennsylvania merely leaning Obama, I guess the Democrats think they must leave nothing to chance.

I Too Hope We Never Find Out

October 25, 2008

Let Freedom Ring is now running a series of campaign ads as part of their Never Find Out campaign.  The following ad is what I see as the most effective because it succinctly explains why higher taxes on those with higher incomes negatively affects those in the middle class. The ad is right.  What liberals [...]

Inaccurate State Polls, Continued

October 23, 2008

A few days ago, I posted on a number of inaccurate state polls coming out of Pennsylvania and Virginia. The poll samples in question showed Obama leading both states by double digits, but contained a far greater percentage of Democrats than historically showed up on election day, even in elections that Democrats won by landslides. [...]

Inaccurate State Polls

October 20, 2008

Many websites have done a great job of dissecting national polls to determine how reliable they are. Because of these efforts, polls conducted by the Washington Post, Newsweek, CBS, etc. have been exposed for the garbage they are. Unfortunately, state polls have not been as heavily scrutinized. Motivated by my own curiosity, I recently looked [...]

Get By With A Little Help From Their Friends

September 25, 2008

The debate over postponing tomorrow’s debate could be a little tricky for John McCain, especially if suspending his campaign includes talking heads. Fortunately, McCain received some unexpected expected support from a prominent “Obama supporter” on this morning’s Good Morning America. Not only did Bill Clinton excuse McCain for wanting to postpone tomorrow’s debate on national [...]

Zero Tax Relief From Obama

September 10, 2008

Even though there isn’t a soul in America that believes him, Barack Obama has been running around the country claiming to support a tax cut for the overwhelming majority of Americans. With that in mind, I was happy to see this piece by Newt Gingrich and Peter Ferrara in the Weekly Standard on taxes. Gingrich [...]

Atlantis, Alaska, Azkaban

It’s a sad day when there’s about a 50 percent chance that some MSM outlet will run with this satirical piece by Jim Treacher thinking its reality, or at least thinking they can trick people into thinking its reality. Link via Hot Air

Close The Door

September 3, 2008

Barack Obama’s ties to terrorist William Ayres is fair game and should have been the subject of a thousand media questions over the last year and a half.  Obama’s prior cocaine use however, should not. Not unless liberals open the door that is. If left wing blogs and the mainstream media (a distinction without a [...]

Republican National Convention, Day 2

September 2, 2008

Fred Thompson and Joe Lieberman seemed subdued to me as they delivered the major speeches at tonight’s session of the Republican National Convention. Normally, that isn’t the demeanor one projects when delivering a political speech, especially at a political convention; but somehow, it worked. What other demeanor would be appropriate when explaining the details of [...]

Sarah Palin Facts

August 31, 2008

Even though we could see the website coming a mile away, it’s still an entertaining read.  Chuck Norris was the first person to have this shtick, Tim Tebow and Cole Hamels also gave it a shot, but Sarah Palin is the first person who can actually back it up. Come to think of it, I [...]

As Visions of VP Debates Dance in Their Heads

This bit of political fortune telling is pretty funny because it is not that far-fetched.

Democrats Stumble Out of the Gate on Sarah Palin

August 29, 2008

Now this Operation Chaos. Totally blindslided by McCain’s spectacular running mate, the Democrats’ initial responses to the selection are as hilarious as they are pathetic. Obama’s campaign has already fallen into McCain’s trap by criticizing inexperience at the bottom of McCain’s ticket and Ken Salazar is apoplectic because she isn’t famous enough. The left’s initial [...]

McCain’s VP Pick To Be Announced Today (UPDATE: McCain Selects Sarah Palin)

August 29, 2008

The official announcement of John McCain’s running mate is expected in about three hours and current rumors are circulating around Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. I hope this is true as she is one of three people who would excite and unite the Republican Party. I have a couple of quick thoughts on the potential selection. [...]

Democrat National Convention: She Who Must Not Be Named Tells The Country What She Thinks Of Barack Obama

August 26, 2008

For the second day in a row, the Democrat Party missed a golden opportunity in their quest to trick the American people into electing Barack Obama to the Presidency. Tonight’s main event featured an address from the woman Obama defeated in the primaries, She Who Must Not Be Named and she did Obama no favors. [...]

Mike’s VP Endorsement: John Kasich

August 24, 2008

You can file this one under “wishful thinking,” but I’d like to offer my two cents on who John McCain should select as his running mate. I am convinced that John Kasich would be McCain’s best option for both political and government purposes. Politically, Kasich is the best option because he would be a tremendous [...]

Obama Selects Joe Biden As His Running Mate

August 23, 2008

With bad news going out to Governor Kaine and Senator Bayh, no 3 a.m. phone call for She Who Must Not Be Named, a private jet from Chicago landing in Delaware, and a new Secret Service detail for the dumbest U.S. Senator, indications are that Barack Obama has selected Senator Joe Biden as his running [...]

McCain Slams Daily Kos

August 18, 2008

Not wanting to be outdone by the NBC “News” parroting the Obama campaign’s false claim that McCain cheated at the Saddleback forum, Daily Kos stepped up to the plate and accused McCain of plagiarizing Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn when he told the story of his Vietnamese prison guard who drew a cross in the sand. Ryan posted [...]

Roll Call Vote at the Democrat National Convention

August 14, 2008

The 2008 Democrat National Convention will feature something that hasn’t been seen at a major party convention since 1992, a roll call vote. Still fuming over the cancellation of their candidate’s coronation, supporters of Obama’s primary opponent, She Who Must Not Be Named, will now have the opportunity to put their PUMA credentials on full [...]

He Can See Clearly Now: Bush Takes A Second Look at Putin

August 13, 2008

Most criticism of George W. Bush is off base and will look downright silly in a few years; however, one criticism of Bush is completely warranted. When Bush looked into Vladimir Putin’s eyes and saw a man he could trust, he should have done a double take. Today was the double take. When the Soviet [...]

A Fine Lieutenant Would Own General Wesley Clark

July 1, 2008

Earlier today, I read Rush Limbaugh’s suggestion to the McCain campaign of how to rebut Weasel Wesley Clark’s bizarre claim that John McCain’s military experience is irrelevant to the Presidency. The gist of Limbaugh’s suggestion was that McCain should simply fight back. My first reaction was that McCain should not get into a spat with [...]

McCain Challenges Obama To Ten Joint Town Hall Meetings

June 4, 2008

The first day of the general election between Barack Obama and John McCain saw each candidate deliver a speech to the nation, with the empty suit delivering the superior performance. When it comes to speeches, this is going to be the norm. For this reason, I appreciate it when the McCain campaign thinks outside the [...]

John McCain’s New Orleans Speech

June 3, 2008

In the previous, post I stated that I never thought I’d hear myself say that I’m praying for John McCain to become the next President of the United States. As I watch McCain’s speech in New Orleans, I reiterate: I cannot believe I’m praying for John McCain to become the next President of the United [...]

No White House For She Who Must Not Be Named

June 3, 2008

It isn’t really news since the race for the Democrat nomination has been over for a while now, but tonight it is official. She Who Must Not Be Named has been defeated. Barack Obama has the delegates necessary to win the Democrat nomination and will face John McCain in November. Although it did not unfold [...]

She Who Must Not Be Named Wins Puerto Rico Primary

June 1, 2008

Add Puerto Rico to the growing list of Democrat constituencies to fact express buyers’ remorse over the nomination of Barack Obama. Earlier today, She Who Must Not Be Named defeated the Empty Suit on the island despite the fact that Obama is the presumptive Democrat nominee. Luckily for Obama, it appears that he may at [...]

Another Obama Preacher

May 29, 2008

This isn’t exactly the same situation as the Reverend Wright controversy because unlike Wright, Michael Pfleger was not the person from whom Barack Obama received twenty years of spiritual guidance. However, Obama has some more explaining to do about his Trinity pseudo-church in Chicago. We’re all familiar with the racist Wright who closely counseled and [...]

Election Soothsaying

May 21, 2008

Election years always bring out the fortune teller in all of us. From amateur bloggers, to professional journalists, to not-so-professional journalists, everyone who closely follows the news tries to figure out who is going to win the election. To the credit of all those I just described (maybe even Chris Matthews), most informed people who [...]

Obama and Democrats Redefine Dialogue

May 19, 2008

Barack Obama and the Democrats love to talk about how they look forward to debating John McCain and highlighting the differences between the two parties. The trouble is, the only kind debate the Democrats are interested in is the kind where they make their case and their Republicans aren’t allowed to respond. We saw this [...]

John Edwards Boldly Endorses Obama

May 14, 2008

Not that we needed any more proof that the race for the Democrat Party nomination is over, but if this doesn’t scare She Who Must Not Be Named’s death eaters into thinking that she can’t win this year, then nothing will. For months now, Democrats have wondered which candidate John Edwards would endorse despite the [...]

Cuntry Roads: She Who Must Not Be Named Wins West Virginia Primary

May 13, 2008

She Who Must Not Be Named won tonight’s West Virginia Democrat Primary by a landslide. Despite tonight’s lopsided result, little has changed in the race for the other party’s nomination. As was the case before tonight, the primary is essentially over. I mean, she was singing months ago. (I wonder if Barack Obama could name [...]
