The First Among the Rest

The contest for the Republican nomination for President has, well before the first primary, been both raucous and caustic. As yet it has not dipped into toxicity, although prior to Sarah Palin’s voluntary departure from consideration the onset of psychosis among some of her core supporters seemed inevitable. Ron Paul has even managed to keep… Continue reading »


Meaning in Madness

We have to realize that nobody could have predicted these senseless events…Apparently, posturing and pointing fingers is easier for our leaders and pundits than grappling with this sad truth.


The Rally

I attended the rally this morning and was happy to see it packed to the rafters.  In fact, today is double awesome because I sent an e-mail to NRO and — it must be a slow day — the editor posted it on the site. Just returned from the McCain-Palin rally in Virginia Beach.  It… 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 »
