How the World Sees our Election

Jonathon Freedland of the Guardian newspaper in England had an editorial last month that puts the Europoean perspective in very basic terms. I hope that, a month later, he’s beginning to feel more optimism. I think he has summed up how most of the rest of the Western world views the upcoming election. Non-Americans sense that Obama will not ride […]

McCain Who? Gimme PALIN!

McCain Who? Gimme PALIN!

You would have thought that after last week’s sorry debate performance that Sarah Palin’s star would have completely faded from the sky. However, you would have been wrong. Like Rich Lowry and so many other conservative pundits, there is a certain segment of the electorate that is … well … let’s face it: They’re hot for Sarah. They don’t care […]

National Review’s Lowry: Wood for Palin

This really is obscene. I’ve seen it for a couple of days now and I have thought it bad all along but, seriously, the more I think about, the more unseemly it…seems: I’m sure I’m not the only male in America who, when Palin dropped her first wink, sat up a little straighter on the couch and said, “Hey, I […]

John McCain: King of Snark

Back in 2006, during ethics reform debates in the Senate, Barack Obama sent John McCain a letter proposing a path forward, one that was not to John McCain’s liking. So John McCain sent him back what has to be the snarkiest, most sarcastic response I have ever read in what should be a professional communication. You can read both letters […]

Also, Such As – UPDATED w/Video

Remember this? Miss South Carolina had a pet phrase, “such as”, that she used as filler whenever she was trying to sound profound. Sarah Palin is just like this girl but her pet phrase is “also”. To whit, FIFTY-THREE TIMES in last night’s debate!!!. UPDATE: Here’s a “Greatest Also Hits” video: And here is a partial transcript. Read it and…Weep? […]

Noun, Verb, Maverick

Although I know I shouldn’t be, I am flabbergasted that the media in this country seem to completely ignore the fact that, beyond making a little verbal flub here and there like anyone in the public spotlight is likely to do, Sarah Palin seems to have no interest in being grammatically correct and speaking in correct sentence. Here are but […]

PHOTOS + PANO: Obama in East Lansing, Michigan

Yesterday, Barack Obama appeared in East Lansing, Michigan, home of Michigan State University (my alma mater, 2 degrees and a daughter who goes there). There he spoke to a crowd of more than 18,000, mostly college students after having addressed a crowd of around 16,000 that morning in Grand Rapids. During his speech, he hit on a variety of topics […]

Dick Cheney with a Tiara and Such As

Last night’s vice presidential debate was very enjoyable for me. Joe Biden hit all the right notes and showed that he has a firm grasp on both domestic and foreign policy issues and supports his candidate’s positions on how to move forward. His demeanor was perfect: not too snarky and condescending but not too wishy-washy either. Sarah Palin, on the […]
