Financial Meltdown: Math & The Myth Of Fiscal Responsibility

Friday, September 19th, 2008

While the details haven't been disclosed, it appears that the powers that be are considering a plan to bail out Wall Street...in a big way...on the backs of the American taxpayer. Troubling as this sounds, it may be the only viable solution. Regardless of the eventual solution, one thing is ...

The Straight Talk Express to Sarah’s Lying Limo Service

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

It's only been a few days since Hurricane Sarah breached the political levees along the Potomac. Within moments of her Minneapolis coronation, many began asking legitimate questions about her qualifications. It's fair to say most found her wanting. While the campaign shopped her around for a sufficiently deferential first interviewer ...

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. ...

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? It's easy to say that Democrats and Republicans are opposites, but in truth, both parties share similar philosophies about governing. Ideologically ...

21st Century GOP

Wednesday, September 10th, 2008

  Taking a cue from the King of Made-Up Reality, George W. Bush, the GOP and their candidates have unleashed an alternate reality that they want all Americans to believe. King George has spent the last 8 years not listening to reality. According to Bush, the economy is fine, Iraq was the ...

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 Road Previously Traveled

Tuesday, September 9th, 2008

I've refrained from writing about Palin. Frankly, she's a herring, well played to distract from the complete lack of substance offered by the McCain campaign. I don't see that adding to the noise about her serves the nation, whose citizens are justifiably alarmed by the faltering American economy, the exorbitant ...

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 ...

White Irony

Thursday, September 4th, 2008

Only 36 of the 2,380 delegates seated on the (Republican) convention floor are black, the lowest number since the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies began tracking diversity at political conventions 40 years ago. -- Wapo .01512605042%!!!  Republicans call McCain/Palin the ticket of change. Interesting direction.
