“Race” For The White House: Who’s Driving The Straight Talk Express?

Friday, August 1st, 2008

I suspect that John McCain is no longer the driver of the straight-talk express. I say as much in light of two developments. One, in the last few weeks, the McCain campaign has been retooled with a number of former Bush campaign operatives...operatives who cut their teeth under the tutelage ...

Is This Race All About The Race?

Sunday, July 27th, 2008

There is a perception that Barack Obama exudes a degree of hubris that may be viewed negatively by a number of voters. The unasked question is whether this impression has its origin in the fact that Barack Obama is actually an over confident candidate or simply a candidate who exceeds ...

Another Republican Class Act

Thursday, July 10th, 2008

The NJ state Republican web site was running a banner slogan saying "Obama Loves America like OJ Loved Nicole" - boy, that's the kind of political discourse that elevates the process.  Who, them racist?  No "oh my God, it's a scary black man!" theme there.  Subtle as a flying mallet, ...

Jesse Helms: A Legacy To Die For?

Friday, July 4th, 2008

Controversial former North Carolina Senator Jesse Helms has died at the age of 86. The following two quotes from Jesse Helms are not, on their surface, offensive...which is why they are so important. I believe they provide insight into understanding the motivations behind all of the other reprehensible Jesse Helms quotations. ...

Fox News: Leading The Obama Smear Campaign?

Thursday, June 12th, 2008

Fox News likes to pretend that their reporting is fair and balanced. Unfortunately, the more they fear that the Democrats might defeat their beloved GOP, the more they exhibit their bias and serve as a shill for the party. The degree to which their bias is evident took an exponential leap ...

Race Relations Be Damned

Thursday, May 15th, 2008

Listening to talk radio or watching even the network television news you find an avenue of opinions that run contrary to the current trend that favors Hillary Clinton because of the fact that Barack Obama just happens to be a black man. When I was trying to toss down a ...

Racism, Avoidance, and Hanging that Darky from a Tree

Tuesday, May 13th, 2008

I read this entire article through, and really, while not what you hope to see, hardly surprising. That's something Progressives would do well to factor. It's not a Southern thing, it's an American thing, and anybody who has had the good fortune to live in more than one area of ...

Quote of the Day

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

I do not have a race card. I was not issued one at birth with instructions on how and when to play it. When I call a person out for an ig’nant race-baiting comment that action is not 'playing the race card'…it’s calling a person out for an ig’nant race-baiting comment. If that ...

Between the Lies

Thursday, May 1st, 2008

The Daily Howler speculates on Clinton motives: CLINTON DOES IT AGAIN: Hillary Clinton has done it again, provoking yet another scandal. Yesterday, she was endorsed by North Carolina governor Mike Easley. In the process, Easley said this, at Clinton's direction: EASLEY (4/29/08): There's nothing I love more than a strong, powerful woman. ...

Cross-Race Recognition Deficit: Why Linking Obama To Wright Is Wrong

Tuesday, April 29th, 2008

I've got a different take on the focus that is being placed on the statement's of Jeremiah Wright and their relationship to the candidacy of Barack Obama. I agree that he isn't doing Senator Obama any favors by appearing at numerous events...especially since many Americans seemed willing to accept his ...
