Uber Cynicism: Wall Street Meltdown - Where’s George W. Bush?

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

Today, Chris Matthews is pushing an important meme in light of the ongoing financial meltdown. While Americans watch a free-fall that has resulted in a near double digit percentage drop in the stock market, Matthews is asking, "Where is George Bush and why hasn't he addressed the American people?" At first ...

Uncovering The Reckless Ambitions Of John McCain

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

On the one hand, I understand the calls for ignoring Sarah Palin and focusing instead upon John McCain. On the other hand, the choice of Palin is so utterly astounding that it cannot be ignored...and it most certainly reflects upon the judgment of John McCain and his assertion that he ...

The Straight Talk Express to Sarah’s Lying Limo Service

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

It's only been a few days since Hurricane Sarah breached the political levees along the Potomac. Within moments of her Minneapolis coronation, many began asking legitimate questions about her qualifications. It's fair to say most found her wanting. While the campaign shopped her around for a sufficiently deferential first interviewer ...

No To The Same Old, Same Old - Invest $72.72 In The Future

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Amidst the misdirection and the attempt of the McCain campaign to yank the change mantra from the Obama campaign, the realities remain the same...John McCain is four more years of George Bush. Would there be differences? Sure, stylistic differences...rhetorical differences...but the kind of difference that will positively impact the average ...

Pig In A Poke - Don’t Forget November 2, 2006

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

It's easy to get caught up in the heat of the moment...and it's also easy to question the judgment of Barack Obama and his campaign in light of the constant unfounded GOP attacks. While I share the same concerns, the current moment made me recall a similar moment prior to ...

The Loaves And Fishes Election?

Monday, September 8th, 2008

If this election turns out to be about religious ideology...while ignoring the real implications of electing a candidate who supports the same policies of the president who created the troubled economy we're now enduring...it may well be appropriate to call this "The Loaves and Fishes Election"...although I doubt either will ...

A Roadie for the Rock Star

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

Depending on which McCain ad you see, Johnny Walnuts thinks Obama is either a rock star or Charlton Heston wannabee. As the ads correctly assert, the O-Man can fire up a crowd and get them thinking seditiously about hope and change. However, McCain seems to think the ability to talk ...

CDC Report - U.S. HIV Infections 40% Higher Than Estimates

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

A new report suggests that the number of annual HIV infections in the U.S. has been drastically underestimated...or underreported. While this is a significant revelation, I'm of the opinion that the back story may be far more telling. Let's look at the new data first. From The International Herald Tribune: The United ...

Walmart Is Hiring Islamic Extremists

Friday, August 1st, 2008

East Asshat, AR - Walmart executives were accused today of trying to pressure their workers to vote Republican in the fall. In one meeting, a Walmart executive reportedly said, "I am not telling you how to vote, but if the Democrats win, this bill will pass and you won't have ...

“Race” For The White House: Who’s Driving The Straight Talk Express?

Friday, August 1st, 2008

I suspect that John McCain is no longer the driver of the straight-talk express. I say as much in light of two developments. One, in the last few weeks, the McCain campaign has been retooled with a number of former Bush campaign operatives...operatives who cut their teeth under the tutelage ...
