Fox News has a Boner for Boehner

Wow.  How he did it: Three Keys to Boehner’s Budget Victory is a Fox News story that drools over Boehner.  I personally think Boehner is the worst possible leader for the Republicans, because he’s a typical middle-of-the-road “Moderate” who stands for nothing – aka George “Read My Lips” Bush Sr and Bob “Could I possibly […]

Politics, Oil, Obama

Just wanted to point out a few facts that aren’t getting much coverage.  I saw these in a Yahoo news story earlier today that I had bookmarked, but when I went back to it, Yahoo had “updated” the story and removed the stuff I wanted to talk about.  But I found the stuff in a […]

Frank Rich is whack

Reading a NY Times story from Frank Rich titled After the Massachusetts Massacre in which Mr. Rich claims It was not a referendum on Barack Obama and  It was not a rejection of universal health care.   Umm, what rock has Mr. Rich been hiding under? For days heading into the election, we heard over […]

Party like it’s 1994 – Part II

I mentioned this a few weeks ago, but it seems to be getting more and more likely that the Dems may be in for a replay of 1994. In general, Americans don’t like politicians who go to extremes, and when any one party is in control, they ALWAYS go to extremes.  Clinton tried pushing through […]

Party like it’s 1994?

Ran across this story in the NY Times tonight suggesting that the Dems  are going to have a hard time “defending their large Congressional majorities”  in the 2010 elections.  Interesting….  That’s the first I’ve heard one that subject, and it got me to thinking about the over reaching in Clinton’s first term, which led to […]

Yo, ‘Bama, will you be my homeboy?

This is what it’s come down to…  An 11 year old asking President Obama “Would you like to become my homeboy?” That’s what USA Today says in their article about it. WEAVER: When I interviewed Vice President Joe Biden, he became my homeboy. Would you like to become my homeboy? OBAMA: Absolutely, thank you man. […]

New bumper sticker

Here’s a bumper sticker someone needs to make – “Honk if I bought your clunker”, or “Honk if I bought your new car”. Just like the “Honk if I’m paying your mortgage” stickers last year, cash for clunkers is simply a way for politicians to take money from one group and give it to another […]

Cash for Congress – err – Clunkers

Cash for clunkers seems to be all the rage this week.  Hundreds of news stories and blog posts are telling everyone how successful it is, how it RAN OUT OF MONEY IN ONE WEEK when it was supposed to last until November, and how this will boost the economy. Bullshit. Here’s an excerpt from the […]

We have to spend money to keep from going broke

I don’t know how I missed this last week, but according to the Boston Herald here, Joe Biden actually said this. “We’re going to go bankrupt as a nation.” “People, when I say that, look at me and say, ‘What are you talking about, Joe? You’re telling me we have to go spend money to […]

Democrats and Republicans

This is from an old (sometime in the 1980’s) Dave Barry column, but I ran across it today and I still find it funny.  It’s about the difference between Democrats and Republicans.  Unfortunately for our country, it’s pretty close to the truth…. “The Democrats seem to be basically nicer people, but they have demonstrated time […]
