Sarah Palin’s First Numbers

August 30, 2008

Renowned pollster Scott Rasmussen has polled the immediate reaction of voters to Alaska Governor and GOP Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin. 67% had NO idea who she was before Friday. Yet, amongst all voters 53% have a positive rating of her (including 29% VERY favorable), while 26% do not like her at all.  In contrast, [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

Ryan’s VP Endorsement: A Seconding of John Kasich

August 25, 2008

Let me explain.  Sarah Palin’s been the flavor of the week because she’s conservative, female, and a new face on the scene.  But what has she really accomplished of significance with national or regional implications that makes her qualified to be one heart-beat away from being President?  What aid does Alaska’s Governor give the national ticket [...]

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 [...]

Biden on Obama: In His Own Words

August 23, 2008

The McCain campaign has an honest to goodness War Room up and running, of which I am very impressed.  Here’s an ad released by the McCain campaign as it was becoming evident that Joe Biden would be Obama’s running mate.  It’s Joe Biden on Barack Obama: Those pesky debates are certainly going to haunt Obama [...]

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 [...]

John Kerry… For Vice President?

August 15, 2008

The Veepstakes game is not a precise science, but some today are seriously thinking that John F’in Kerry, Lurch himself, could be on Obama’s short list for his “foreign policy credentials:”  like Kerry’s famous ”global test” debacle of 2004, or his Vietnam War service, complete with lying about our troop’s behavior to Congress once he got home?    I’m sure the Obama [...]

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 [...]

Romney Veepstakes Buzz

July 16, 2008

Although Mitt Romney is refusing to speak about whether or not current talks with McCain’s camp are taking place or that background info has changed hands, his stock in the Republican Veepstakes is rising as the press needs a new political face to obsess over nowadays.  We all know how the press influences McCain, so their buzz [...]

McCain on Letterman, Imus

April 2, 2008

John McCain appeared on the “Late Show with David Letterman” last night, being the last of the three candidates still in this race to appear on the show.  McCain is also the most readily available to the media, by the way.  McCain wasn’t bad for a politician and actually got off the stage when the skit [...]

Richardson Joins the Obama-Nation

March 21, 2008

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson has endorsed Obama today.  Among other things, Richardson said of Obama: “I believe he is the kind of once-in-a-lifetime leader that can bring our nation together and restore America’s moral leadership in the world….  As a presidential candidate, I know full well Sen. Obama’s unique moral ability to inspire the [...]

Gotta Keep ‘Em Separated

January 27, 2008

Despite the Iowa caucuses, and the South Carolina primary, and the recent string of high-profile endorsements, I still believe that She Who Must Not Be Named will win the Democrat nomination. If this unfortunate event occurs, the witch will have no choice but select Barack Obama as her running mate. Mark Levin over at the [...]
