Imported My Old Blog

I got an e-mail from my old blog host, Vox. They are shutting down their site and helpfully suggested I import my old posts into Wordpress.


My Final Thoughts on This Election

*12-18-09 Read this again.  To my delight, it is holding up well* I'm rapidly running out of ways to criticize Barack Obama.  Over the past two years, I've been lamenting at various times (and in no particular order): Obama's inexperience, questionable associations, stated policy goals, inept assessments of world events, pandering to abortion extremists, Chicago-style thug… Continue reading »


This Day in Potentially Damning Yet Utterly Ignored Obama News

So, today the big focus is on how you can make fake donations to the Obama site that still take money from your account.  As in: So I went to the Obama website this afternoon and clicked on the "Donate" button. I used my real MasterCard number (but was not asked for the 3 digit security… Continue reading »


Debate Recap

I am not going to spend much time on this, since tomorrow morning I leave for Asheville NC and a celebration of our 1st anniversary.  I will say that I feel these debates were inconclusive in terms of moving the race forward.What I will say quite firmly, and I hope that my liberal readers will… Continue reading »


VDH on Sarah P. via NRO

Victor Davis Hanson: Journalists continue to ask, “What was John McCain thinking in selecting the gaffe-prone Gov. Sarah Palin?”In what has now become a disturbing pattern, the Alaska governor seems either unable or unwilling to avoid embarrassing statements that are often as untrue as they are outrageous. Recently, for example, in an exclusive interview with… Continue reading »


Jim Geraghty on Obama’s Messiah Problem

And it is a problem in this country. The Left Finally Accepts Religion in Government… So Long As You Worship Obama Thinking about the Smith College op-ed where a student declares Obama to be her "Personal Jesus," I'm reminded of something I wrote on the off-duty blog: This [children singing about Obama] video illustrates a… Continue reading »


Final Analysis of Gibson-Palin Interview, Part II

This is the second part of my analysis on the Gibson-Palin interview.  In the first part, I focused on what I felt were the substantive issues regarding Palin’s selection and her qualifications to be Vice-President.  I attempted to fairly gauge those areas in which she needs improvement while also mentioning areas in which she showed… Continue reading »


Final Analysis of Gibson-Palin Interview, Part I

Essentially, the Palin interview needs to be evaluated on two fronts.  First, and most important, is Palin’s performance as an untried national candidate.  The ABC piece was not a first impression, but a substantive discussion after the first impression…an impression which, I don’t think anyone can argue, was pretty forceful.  The second and only slightly… Continue reading »


The Palin Interview, So Far

Apparently I was too high to notice that Sarah Palin had her first big solo interview with ABC and Charles Gibson.  Wisdom teeth.  But I found it online, so you won't be denied my impressions.  I have rather mixed feelings.  While the questions being asked were certainly, certainly pertinent (earmarks, the economy, etc.) Charlie Gibson… Continue reading »


More Sarah Palin Defense…Sadly Still Necessary!

Sarah Palin was accused of many things over the week.  One of the less obscene was the notion that she, a prolifer openly opposed to abortion, had hypocritically cut funding for pregnant teens.  As it turns out, that was true!  Sort of.  As always, a partial truth is more damaging than a total lie.  For… Continue reading »
