Solving the Federal Deficit

Solving the Federal Deficit

Here’s how John McCain is going to close the budget gap that’s creating the gigantic federal deficit. He’s going to eliminate earmarks. Earmarks, as part of our overall budget, are that little sliver of red in the pie chart below: Via ForeignPolicy.com. Oh, yeah, he’s also going to cut taxes for the uber-wealthy. Good luck with all of that. Straight […]

Desperation’s Crocodile

Desperation’s Crocodile

As Sarah Palin scans her morning coffee cup for words of inspiration and wisdom, one wonders if, in light of their campaign’s recent turn toward the Dark Side, this quote appeared to her: “In life you need either inspiration or desperation.”– Anthony Robbins And THIS is enough to make anyone desperate: Pollster data from 10/6/2008 This is Desperation’s Crocodile. At […]

Spinning Obama’s Victory Already?

Rich Lowry at the National Review is already spinning Obama’s victory over McCain. While I agree that the economic crisis has impacted McCain’s campaign harder, there’s a good reason for that: his party’s approach for the past eight years (and his actions in Congress) have done NOTHING to mitigate the financial meltdown we’re seeing. The fact that Obama has been […]

Well, Day-um

Joe Klein at Time’s Swampland blog bars no holds: Referring to the McPalin attempts to cast aspersions on Barack Obama’s character As I said, I’m of two minds about this. I don’t want to give currency to this sewage, so it will remain below the fold. And I’ll try to devote the lion’s share of my time to the issues–the […]

McCain: Republican “Placeholder”

McCain: Republican “Placeholder”

Perhaps the biggest problem for John McCain, self-proclaimed “maverick” (retch), is that he has bucked his own party for so long that he has incurred the enmity of many in his party. However, in an election year where “change” is so essential, something (perhaps the only thing) that Democrats and Republicans agree on, putting McCain at the top of the […]

Freedom-Hating Pakistanis

Freedom-Hating Pakistanis

As I understand it, according to our Dear Leader and his minions, it’s our freedoms they hate… I tend to agree more with Bill Maher, actually: “They don’t hate us for our freedom,” said Maher with a laugh. “They hate us for our airstrikes. In Afghanistan, that seems to be the problem. It’s that, we keep killing people with our […]

William Ayers THIS, Bitch!

Today, the Obama campaign releases a 13-minute “ad” that discusses John McCain’s ties to the Keating Five scandal. Apropos, methinks, in light of all the financial unrest that’s grabbed this country by the throat. Here’s the teaser. That’s fine, Mr. McCain. You bring up William Ayers all you want. Barack Obama’s ties to him are so tenuous as to be […]

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 […]
