Sarah Palin: Media Vixen or Media Victim?

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

I've never heard of a politician that didn't howl about their quotes being taken out of context. Frequently the howls come juxtaposed with video not only showing the quote in context, but also the unambiguous vigor with which it was delivered. Public officials are also quite fond of accusing the ...

The First Law of Holes

Tuesday, November 11th, 2008

Molly Ivins, among others, liked to say that the First Law of Holes is that when you realize you're in one, the first thing to do is stop digging.  Some folks have a harder time than others learning that. Where most people appear to see the message of the 2008 election ...

More on “Socialism” and “Wealth Redistribution”

Monday, October 27th, 2008

Last week, I put together a short video about the history of socialism in America. (In case you missed it, you can watch it here.) Whether you want to admit it or not, America is now, and has for some time been, a nation filled with socialism and wealth redistribution. ...

The Haute Couture Maverick

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

Poor little Hockey Mom, she’s gone from America’s hottest schoolmarm to visiting the same party-destroying poll numbers as George W. Bush. She hasn’t learned her job description, she has a multitude of positions on every issue, and she’s a profligate spender of taxpayer money on nights spent in her own ...

The McCain-Palin Melodrama - Cue The Finale?

Saturday, October 25th, 2008

With more than ten days to the election of a new president, it's probably premature to attempt to decipher the missteps of the McCain campaign. At the same time, given the theatrical nature of the candidates erratic endeavor, it's not unusual for critical reviews to precede the cancellation of a ...

America Is Finally Exercising Good Judgment

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

The McCain campaign began with a strategy - to the extent they have a strategy - of painting Barack Obama as an untested, inexperienced candidate. Proving their flair for anti-creativity, they caged this stance from Hilary Clinton and her 3 am phone call ads. While they stayed on this message ...

Buh-Bye Lipsticked Pit Bull - Caribou Barbie Gets A 150K Makeover?

Tuesday, October 21st, 2008

Oh how I love irony! My frenzied friends on the right have done their damnedest to portray the Obama's as snooty elitists...despite the fact that it's the McCain's who own seven homes, thirteen automobiles, and a virtual department store of haute couture for Cindy to show off on the campaign ...

Guilt By Association?

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008

One of the fundamental differences between eighteenth century European Law and American Law is the presumption of innocence until proven guilty. The Bush administration has fought continuously over the last seven years to erode this fundamental right. The Bush crew has used fear to gradually work the American public into accepting ...

Palin lies in conference call to reporters

Monday, October 13th, 2008

Listen to the conference call here. During a conference call, Sarah Palin, who also refers to TrooperGate as TaserGate, stated: Well, I'm very very pleased to be cleared of any legal wrongdoing ... any hint of any kind of unethical activity there. Very pleased to be cleared of any of that. Big ...

The Evolution Of Elections - Intelligent Design Debunked

Thursday, October 9th, 2008

As we move closer to the election, I've witnessed a phenomena that has only recently begun to make sense to me (by the fact that it doesn't make sense). First, I have to hand it to my Republican friends...their tenacity in creating tangible talking points out of thin air is ...
