Jonah’s Tall Tale: John McScissorhands

Saturday, September 13th, 2008

Sometimes the only respite from the partisan protestations and fabrications is humor...and today felt like one of those days, Yes, I realize humor can also be misconstrued through the prism of petty partisanship...which is why I intend to preface this posting with a clear and concise caveat. The latest blog swarm ...

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. ...

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 ...

Dans La Rue! C’est Juste Le Dèbut…Le Combat Continue!

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

Call me a dreamer. The title of this posting is from the Bertolucci movie...The Dreamers...a film set in Paris during the tumultuous 60's. Bertolucci, a master at exploring every facet of his character's psyches, tackles the lives of three friends seeking meaning in a complex world...a world undergoing rapid ...

The Palin Play: Pulpits…Puppets…Politics…Profits

Friday, September 5th, 2008

Quite frankly, the GOP's political parlance is the equivalent of being told that one can engage in a circle jerk with one's self. I think it is actually more akin to placing one's head up one's behind. Yes..it's still a circle...but the outcome isn't quite as pleasant. Look, I'll happily give ...

The Diagnosis: The Makings Of A Palin-ectomy?

Wednesday, September 3rd, 2008

Try as they might, the McCain campaign is doing all it can to convince the public and the press that they have given Sarah Palin a thorough examination and found her fit to serve as the Vice President and assume the role of the presidency should anything happen to their ...

2008 Democratic National Convention - Media Welcoming Party

Sunday, August 24th, 2008

Last night, I attended the Media Welcoming Party, held at Elitch Gardens in Denver...the same venue (relocated) that played a role 100 years prior during the 1908 Democratic National Convention. The 9,000 attendees were treated to an abundance of food, drink, and entertainment. Two particular items caught my attention. The ...

Bill Donohue Speaks His Mind: “Silence Others”

Monday, August 18th, 2008

No doubt election years are trying times for many of us. It's easy to find oneself drawn into the dog fight...especially if one is passionate about any particular issue. Fortunately, we live in a country that allows us to speak our minds and cast our votes accordingly. Sadly, there are ...

Baracky II: Taking On The Big Bad Myth Of John McCain

Friday, August 15th, 2008

In 1960, television likely played a part in JFK's defeat of Richard Nixon. In the 2008 election, while YouTube may be poised to play a similar role, I suspect that the debates will actually provide a level of discrimination that is reminiscent of 1960...technicolor will yield to contrast. In this ...
