Sarah "No Show" Palin

First, McCain's campaign has said that Palin won't speak to the Press: Watch video here She is also the only one of the four absent from the Sunday A.M. political show line up this weekend. Palin insists that she could take on foreign leaders but is too scared to show up for questions from the Press? Doesn't sound very gutsy to me.   ...more

Does Palin expect to woo Clinton voters? Really?

I was not really surprised last week when John McCain chose a woman to be his runningmate.  Nor was I surprised he chose an ultra conservative.  But Both?  What were they thinking? ...more

Palin Shmalin

I just basically responded to a friend's blog post about this, but I think it can stand alone. I'm not looking to debate this--think and vote how you want, it's your right. I'm just blowing off steam. ...more

Are the candidates lying? How can we find out? Maury!!!!!!!!

Which candidate will give us the change we need? Which of the things they say will they do? How can we tell who's giving it to us straight? Who's going to fight hardest for us? And who are they going to fight with? Who has a better plan for the economy? Will privatized health care be an improvement? What do they have in mind for our school system? Which team is more environmentally conscious? Is that photo of Sarah Palin in the bathing suit for real? ...more

Drill, baby, drill? No, baby, no!

So yesterday, my heart sank while watching GOP delegates hold up signs and chanting the mantra “Drill, baby, drill!” any time a speaker mentioned “energy independence.” Sarah Palin argued that the drilling solution is only a bridge until we build alternative solutions, acknowledging that the US will never have enough oil to sustain itself forever. ...more

Why the Republicans Are Unified

I was just talking to a friend and we were discussing how "on message" Republicans are 100% of the time while the Dems are always arguing with each other.  Case in point -- Hillary supporters continue to hog the news to state why they aren't supporting Obama despite the call for unity from their party.  I haven't noticed any Romney or Guiliani supporters hogging the cameras to bemoan their loss.  Why is that?  I've decided that the reason why Democrats are critical of each other  has everything to do with choice and freedom.  The Republicans o ...more

Karl Rove Doesn't Think Sarah Palin Has the Experience to Run

Karl Rove on Tim Kaine as a potential Vice-Presidential candidate: "With all due respect again to Governor Kaine, he's been a governor for three years, he's been able but undistinguished," Rove said. "I don't think people could really name a big, important thing that he's done. He was mayor of the 105th largest city in America.  And, again, with all due respect to Richmond, Virginia**, it's smaller than Chula Vista, California, Aurora, Colorado, Mesa or Gilbert, Arizona, North Las Vegas, or Henderson, Nevada. It's not a big town. ...more

In the Name of “GOD”….

“If we say we are doing it for God and Country…they will believe anything we sell them!” (a republican mantra) I know…I keep trying to bring up the facts  - and the facts just don’t matter - do they? Not when we are trying to be intelligent about our protests of this preposterous republican Vice Presidential appointment and the realities of what would befall us if such a nightmare were to ever materialize? But here I go again… How silly - are - we? ...more
