Dueling “Surprises” Fall Flat

October 25, 2012

Obama shill and liberal hack Gloria Allred has done her best to dig up dirt on Mitt Romney in the run-up to November 6. Unfortunately for her a few things got in the way:  1) Mitt Romney’s squeaky clean, and 2) the apparent dirt is an 18-year-old charge which first appeared in Mitt’s 1994 run [...]

Obamacare Ain’t Got No CLASS

October 15, 2011

The Department of Health and Human Services had to admit yesterday that a portion of ObamaCare, the Community Living Assistance Services (CLASS) Act, is simply unworkable.  CLASS was Ted Kennedy’s brainchild (hiccup!) and a classic big government boondoggle waiting to happen:  eventually front loading goodies, while back loading the costs until the whole thing would [...]

Patrick Kennedy Retiring

February 12, 2010

The era of Camelot will officially end on November 3, 2010, when Patrick Kennedy’s successor as Congressman from Rhode Island is elected.  Patrick Kennedy (D-RI) announced yesterday that he has decided to call it quits and retire.  It is unclear why he decided to.  Is it his low poll numbers, the fact that Massachusetts went [...]

“I Can See Russia From My House,” Only She Really Said It This Time

October 27, 2009

No, I’m not talking about Sarah Palin.  The infamous quote above was uttered by Tina Fey in a Saturday Night Live skit, and was attributed to Palin by many non-thinking individuals, much in the same way as “Strategery”, another SNL creation, was credited to George W. Bush.  In both cases, the individual never uttered the [...]

Height of Liberal Hypocrisy in Massachusetts

September 18, 2009

In 2004, when Sen. John Kerry (D-MA) was expected by the political and chattering classes to defeat President George W. Bush in the presidential election, the People’s Republic of Massachusetts decided to change its Senatorial succession laws.  Up to that point, when a vacancy occurred, the Governor of the state would appoint a replacement to [...]

Political Antics at Kennedy Funeral

August 30, 2009

With all that’s been said and done since Ted Kennedy’s death about using his death politically to promote a socialized health care  monstrosity, I can’t believe this actually happened at his funeral services yesterday: What an absolutely shameless crew!  Talk about mixing church and state (which I thought Libs didn’t like), using the high-profile bad Catholic’s funeral as [...]

Trying to Score Points on Kennedy’s Death

August 27, 2009

Ted Kennedy’s body is not even cold yet and some are trying to win political points, shamelessly using his death to advance their political agenda.  The most obvious are those, like Robert Byrd, who want to put Ted Kennedy’s name on the health care bill in an attempt to use the spirit of mourning and [...]

Ted Kennedy Dies at 77

August 26, 2009

The Liberal Lion of the Senate, Senator Edward M. Kennedy died from brain cancer late last night at the age of 77.  The sudden nature of his passing took me by surprise, though it was less than a week ago that he was imploring Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick to appoint Kennedy’s replacement as soon as possible (though the law in [...]

Keeping the Kennedy Klan in Power

August 21, 2009

Ted Kennedy is dying.  He couldn’t even attend his sister’s funeral last week.  He knows that he probably doesn’t have long before he cannot discharge his duties as the senior Senator from the Commonwealth (sorry, People’s State) of Massachusetts.  Back in 2004, Massacusetts’ most apt swimmer had little problem with a bill prohibiting the governor from appointing a [...]

Sotomayor is Confirmed

August 7, 2009

With a 68-31 vote (Teddy “Fins” Kennedy was too ill to vote) the US Senate voted to confirm Sonia Sotomayor the 111th Supreme Court Justice.  Nine RINOs, Lindsey Graham among them, added their votes to 59 Dems.   She’s also the third woman and (I’m not sure if anyone knows about this) she’s the first Latina on the court!  I [...]

Senator Al Franken

July 1, 2009

Yes, Al Franken has been (ahem) elected a United States Senator from the state of Minnesota — Jesse Ventura and Walter Mondale-Land now has a new embarrassment! I feel bad for Norm Coleman.  He did the noble thing by conceding promptly after Minnesota’s Supreme Court handed the election to Franken after a long and arduous legal [...]

The Kennedy “Mistake”

December 21, 2008

I grew up in Rhode Island.  Like New Jersey has New York envy, RI has Massachusetts envy — we just want to matter, so we’ll latch on to certain aspects our more exciting neighbor to bask in some of their glow.  That being said, RI is in love with the Kennedy’s.  John and Jackie were married in [...]

The DNC — Day One

August 26, 2008

So it begins! Michelle Obama gave last evening’s major speech where she tried to rehabilitate her image amongst the folks.  Some think she did OK.  Though obviously managed and edited by fierce poll-reading sycophants it didn’t really hurt in my opinion – kids, shoutouts, kinder/gentler, blah blah.  I saw a re-airing of the speech and while I watched I couldn’t get past those [...]

Ted Kennedy has Brain Cancer

May 20, 2008

Doctors have identified “a malignant glioma in the left parietal lobe” as the cause of Senator Kennedy’s seizure over the weekend.  This kind of cancer affects roughly 9000 Americans per year and early diagnosis and a non-aggressive type can lead to about five more years.  But it’ll be a tough slog.  Kennedy’s cancer is inoperable [...]

Ted Kennedy Hospitalized

May 17, 2008

Whereas sometimes we at AOR like to poke fun at Ted Kennedy, in times like this it is not appropriate.  He’s human, and we are not just fallible beings, we’re mortal beings who must deal with what life hands us sometimes. It’s reported at this early hour that the 76-year-old Kennedy was hospitalized with symptoms of a [...]

Petraeus and Crocker Surge Update: ’08 Version

April 8, 2008

General David Petraeus and Ambassador Ryan Crocker entered a hostile-fire zone once again on Capitol Hill, and once again came out looking like the adults in the room!  By later this evening, all three Presidential contenders will have gotten a chance to question the General about the continued effectiveness of the Surge strategy.  I’d like to [...]

Democrat Party in Chaos

January 29, 2008

Much has been written on this page and others about the state of the Republican party, but little attention is being paid to the possible crumbling of the Democrat coalition that has kept the Democrat Party in contention for the past 30 years.  She Who Must Not Be Named and her supporters have done more [...]
