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.

Unintended Consequences: The McCain Strategy Flaw

Friday, September 12th, 2008

If you're going to foment a gender driven divide, or any other contrivance, in order to win votes, you have to realize that its effect can't be isolated within one party...and it isn't apt to resonate with those voters who haven't the time to participate in the pettiness of politics. ...

McCain-Palin: The Dark Side Of Politics

Friday, September 12th, 2008

Everything has an opposite. Day and night. Happy and sad. Good and bad. Progression and regression. The list is endless. How does this apply to the current presidential election?

Thursday, September 11th, 2008

Since the nomination of Sarah Palin as the new standard barer of the Republican Party I have been struggling with a way to collect my thoughts and express them in a coherent way. I have been struck with many emotions and thoughts as the activities have played out over the ...

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

In response to a reichwing troll that constantly hurls his epithets on my personal blog but never manages to back up his bullshit with facts or links to them...here is a comprehensive listing of just what in the blue hell Obama has been doing whilst working for the folks in ...

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 ...

2008 Election: Why The Supreme Court Matters

Monday, September 8th, 2008

Sarah Palin's selection as John McCain's running mate has evangelicals feeling all warm and fuzzy. Her presence on the ticket has energized the conservative base and rekindled concerns that this election will see the reemergence of a full-scale culture war. Truth be told, the culture war had never ended...it had ...

Real Time With Bill Maher: 09/05/08

Saturday, September 6th, 2008

Bill Maher is my hero! Last nights show simply reminded me of that fact. While one could argue that his acerbic tongue alienates the religious right and those voters who might be persuadable, I've come to the conclusion that it may be the only way to fight a war with ...
