Noonan for Obama's Press Sec'y?

After the veep debate between Joe Biden and Sarah Palin, Peggy Noonan looked like the sad lady at the end of the bar when she peered up at Brian Williams and said "she killed."One might have thought that Noonan, a avowed conservative and loyal keeper of the Reagan flame, would have been pleased with Palin having "killed" in the debate, but no - that was not the impression Noonan gave.A pal of mine who writes for a "prestigious" magazine - if any of them that, anymore - confessed to me that … [Read more...]

Press coverage negative on McCain?

If this does not frighten you — regardless of your political affiliation — then you deserve what this man will deliver with both houses of Congress, a filibuster-proof Senate, and, to quote Senator Obama again, “a righteous wind at our backs.”That a man so clear in his understanding of the Constitution, and so opposed to the basic tenets it provides against tyranny and the abuse of power, can run for president of the United States is shameful enough.We’re just getting started.Bill Whittle, to … [Read more...]

Our Unfree Press – -UPDATED

I have written often and often about the dangers a nation faces when its press is not free:It’s so tiring, you almost don’t want to bother saying it. But we have to keep pointing it out, this mad descent of the press, and not grow weary or complacent. The only way to keep the press honest is to keep it accountable; that is our responsibility - yours and mine - a free press is an unencumbered, detached, open and honest press. And we must have it; we must insist that our press be free - una … [Read more...]

The stupidest girl in the world

Had a doctor's appointment so I missed this when it broke.I'm so glad I followed my gut and didn't buy into this story:How stupid and/or needy is this kid?Police sources tell KDKA that a campaign worker has now confessed to making up a story that a mugger attacked her and cut the letter "B" in her face after seeing her McCain bumper sticker.Ashley Todd, 20, of Texas, initially told police that she was robbed at an ATM in Bloomfield and that the suspect became enraged and started … [Read more...]

McCain Volunteer attacked & maimed? UPDATED

Well, the blogosphere is all abuzz (even if the national, mainstream media seem not to be) about this alleged attack on a 20-year old McCain volunteer, which started out as a mugging, and - perhaps - became an assault and "branding."Glenn Reynolds says: this is so serious that I predict it will get almost one-tenth as much national coverage as something some guy may have yelled at a Palin rally once.I did not jump on the story because I'm a New Yorker and my first thought was: Tawana … [Read more...]

Going after Joe the Plumber & America w/ UPDATES!

To my way of thinking, Joe the Plumber - singing the psalm of the common man, and representing the views of the middle class and what we once used to call "the Silent Majority" - has completely terrified the left, the Obama camp and the press.And so...he must be destroyed. So what happens to Mr. Wurzelbacher for expressing his views?Reports in the mainstream media appear claiming that he is unlicensed (even though he doesn't need one as an employee of a business or as a contractor working on … [Read more...]

Presumption, Illusions & Reality

Apparently, the Obama - "they better not bring my wife into it" - Campaign has decided that it's okay to go after spouses, now - translate that: just John McCain's spouse. Confederate Yankee notes some out-and-out lying at the Washington Post.I'm sure the reporter just doesn't know how to um...investigate stuff, like that blogger does.Well, who has time to check facts when there is a victory party to plan or winnings to be collected 'way before the fact.The Obama team is sending the … [Read more...]

Final Debate Reactions

OOPS! I thought I'd published this earlier - turns out I'd only saved it!How many of you were waiting for McCain to say the C-word re those tee shirts?I did think McCain was stronger and more combative than last debate, but he clearly does not want to be a political pugilist. Was glad he mentioned vouchers, but I do believe I had predicted that he could not discuss Ayers except on Obama's turf, thus neutralizing the issue. That's what happened.Should have talked more ACORN, too. McCain … [Read more...]

Live-blogging the final Debate?

No, not me. I haven't the stamina to watch-and-blog because I get too anal about trying to get "everything." Not worth making myself nuts over. While you're waiting though, take a look at what the Ohio Secretary of State thinks is Democracy in Action, and get a load of Gay Patriot's state-by-state electoral fraud post. It ain't pretty.I see the press already has their talking points from Lord Obama.If you're looking for liveblogging, it's usually fun times for that over at Althouse's … [Read more...]
