Jon Stewart is a comedian?

The Daily Show should be required viewing for anyone looking to get into public service. I do like and admire President Obama, but Jon Stewart’s video clip really highlights that all politicians lie. President Obama is getting a beating in the polls because of the BP oil spill. But where it really counts, we’re getting […]

What a fun week it’s been

This past week some interesting events occurred. First, there was a special election in Massachusetts and then there was the SCOTUS ruling that says corporate entities (and unions) can’t be limited in advertising bombing the electorate. That Scott Brown got elected is really a non-issue. People vote and get elected all the time and I […]

This will not placate the Iranian protectors

This is a mistake on the part of the Iranian government.  It is understandable that they want to stop the demonstrations, but this tact will only harden both side’s positions.

They don’t seem to want to stop

The protestors in Iran do not want to go away. I’m am hoping that this does not end the same way Tianamen did; that government is not famous for their patience.

Palin seems to know why they lost

Massive irony alert. I think the Republican ticket represented too much of the status quo, too much of what had gone on in these last eight years, that Americans were kind of shaking their heads like going, wait a minute, how did we run up a $10 trillion debt in a Republican administration? via Palin: […]

Your VP candidate is so dumb she…

This is going to put Your Mama Is So Dumb jokes in perspective. “If [the media] convince enough voters that that is negative campaigning, for me to call Barack Obama out on his associations,” Palin told host Chris Plante, “then I don’t know what the future of our country would be in terms of First […]

Governor Palin shows lots of class

Okay, I guess Bill Ayers 15 minutes are up.  Now their linking Senator Obama with the PLO. Here is the appropriate response: The Obama campaign called Palin’s remarks “another recycled, manufactured controversy from the McCain campaign to distract voters’ attention from John McCain’s lockstep support for George Bush’s economic policies.” Palin accuses Obama of ties […]

Governor Palin abused her position and so what?

The report is in and apparently Governor Palin (or her husband, I can’t tell which) has abused her position. And it does not matter one bit. The folks who will vote for McCain only care about ethics, rules, and laws when it applies to Those Darned Socialist Democrats. If anything this will solidify the base […]

That was totally expected, no release for those 17

Those 17 not-enemy-combatants that Pakistan handed to the U.S.? An emergency motion blocking their release was granted to the administration. That’s not surprising; I expected that the administration would not have bothered with a court order.  I mean, they could have just refused to comply. This whole situation is ridiculous.  If this is really an […]
