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 ...

McCain, Palin: Lay Preachers at Our Lady of the Asshats

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

I was raised Methodist. Not one of those fire-breathing, tongue-speaking, snake-handling Methodists (although my grandparents were a bit loony that way). No, we were more suburban Methodists. We were sticklers for thou shalt not murder and solid behind the whole thou shalt not steal thing, but as far as the ...

The Truth & Nothing But The Truth About Sarah Palin

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

Well I've had it with all of the Sarah Palin hyperbole. We're a better nation than this and we need to stop with the ad hominem attacks on the Alaska governor. To that end, I've taken the time to compile some relevant facts that will set the record straight on ...

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 ...

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 ...

2008 Election: Seeking Reason Amidst The Rhetoric

Tuesday, September 2nd, 2008

For the most part, I've been in a funk since the Democratic National Convention. The question I've been unable to answer is why. Even as I write this posting, I remain unsure of the cause of my malaise. Regardless, it seemed appropriate to attempt an explanation...for myself and my readers. As ...

Dan Quayle Was Right about Murphy Brown

Monday, September 1st, 2008

In 1992 Dan Quayle made a courageous speech about moral values. He knew the liberal media would make fun of him but he stood his ground. He rightly criticized the TV series Murphy Brown for the immoral message it was sending to America’s youth. After several seasons, the series’ star, TV ...

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 ...
