Uncovering The Reckless Ambitions Of John McCain

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

McCain 2008: For Tort Reform Before He Was Against It?

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

Fired HP CEO Says She’s More Qualified Than McCain Or Palin?

Tuesday, September 16th, 2008

It was bound to happen. After weeks of carefully calculated spin, the McCain campaign's web of incongruous rhetoric is beginning to unravel. In less than 48 hours, the straight talk express has run itself into a ditch, and the rubber that no longer meets the road is wearing perilously thin ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...
