John McCain - Four More Years Of The Accidental Presidency?

Monday, August 11th, 2008

Well how about that? It looks like the rhetoric of the straight talk express is being lifted nearly word for word...straight out of Wikipedia. If you haven't heard the news, it appears that several passages from the candidates comments on the conflict between Russia and Georgia are notably similar to ...

Obama Shouldn’t Be In Hawaii - Has “I Must Be Doing Cokie” Roberts Lost It?

Sunday, August 10th, 2008

While I've never been a fan of Cokie Roberts, I haven't found her to be as obnoxious as other right-leaning pundits...until today. A regular on This Week with George Stephanopoulos, today Roberts launched into a tirade about the fact that Barack Obama has chosen to vacation in Hawaii. Roberts suggests ...

On The John Edwards Affair - The Stop & Stare Society

Saturday, August 9th, 2008

It's common knowledge that car accidents cause traffic jams...even after the vehicles involved have been moved to the shoulder of the road. I've often wondered what causes us to slow down and gaze out our windows as we pass by. Is it out of concern for the passengers or is ...

Who Is The God That Stands Between The Theist & The Atheist?

Thursday, August 7th, 2008

I'm of the opinion that morality isn't the domain of any particular segment of society...whether that be religiously inclined groups or those who don't believe in God. Generally speaking, I suspect morality is an individual construct...albeit influenced by many factors including the individuals one chooses to associate with. Regardless, there ...

Kissing Up To James Dobson Requires A Lot Of Lip Service

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

Nothing makes Focus on the Family's James Dobson happier than having his ego stroked...and Mark Joseph does just that in an open letter opinion piece on Fox News. The only thing missing in Joseph's "adore-itorial" is a picture of Dobson's freshly lip-kissed behind. Joseph's glorification of Dobson is only a ...

John “Chuckles” McCain: Politician, Panderer, Or Humorist?

Tuesday, August 5th, 2008

The McCain campaign wants us to believe that their recent attack ads are simply an attempt to inject a little humor into the 2008 election. Yes, we're supposed to conclude that a campaign with a significant fund raising disadvantage has decided to magnanimously toss money down the drain to make ...

More On The Historical Inaccuracy Of The Bible

Sunday, August 3rd, 2008

I find it fascinating how little most people actually know about the Bible and its historical validity. The adherence to the Bible as fact is even more astounding in the seeming absence of evidence to support such beliefs. As an adjunct to my prior posting on Hector Avalos...in which he ...

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 ...

“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 ...

John McCain - The Straight-Talking Maverick Can Sure Ride A Fence

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

John McCain, a former critic of Christian extremists, has suddenly become a seemingly born-again evangelical in conjunction with his 2008 presidential bid. Sadly, his run to the right is hardly evidence of a man who has made a career of portraying himself as a straight-talking maverick. Those who contend that ...
