Year in review: Top ten stories of 2008

As in year's past, I have enjoyed reviewing the posts from the year and coming up with the top ten stories.1. Cancelation of the American Psychiatric Association symposium - Amidst threat of protests, the APA pressed to halt a scheduled symposium dedicated to sexual identity therapy and religious affiliation. Whipped up by a factually inaccurate article in the Gay City News, gay activists persuaded the APA leadership to pressure symposium organizers to pull the program. Gay City News later … [Read more...]

Time to wrap up 2008 with a review of the stories told and topics covered. I also will give the top ten posts based on page views.By far the election was the broad topic which generated the most page views. Aside from the Berg vs. Obama thread, readers prefer to comment on the sexual identity related posts. As in past years, I will pick out my top ten themes in a later post.Top ten by number of comments (fluctuation should be minimal since most of these threads are quiet now)1. Berg … [Read more...]

Few Obama voters knew potential negatives

In the 2008 election, voters knew lots of negatives regarding McCain-Palin but very few about Obama-Biden - so says a poll conducted by Zogby International. Conducted for documentarian, John Ziegler, the poll seems to indicate most voters consumed media which placed McCain-Palin in a more negative light than Obama-Biden."After I interviewed Obama voters on Election Day for my documentary, I had a pretty low opinion of what most of them had picked up from the media coverage of the campaign, … [Read more...]

Nov. 5 New York Times Front Page Leaked

Well, I can't actually verify this but it might look something like this.Here is a little better view of it.I might be done for the night; I am not sure I can watch this. FOX just called VA at 10:41pm for Obama. Virginia.Jedi mind tricks.Some GOP people I talk to hope for buyer's remorse and a resurgence in the mid-term elections in 2010. As a historical parallel, Bill Clinton, in 1992, met immediate problems with his health care initiatives; one wonders if Obama's pledge to … [Read more...]

More Evangelicals for Obama chatter

I have talked about Kirbyjohn Caldwell here before. He endorsed Obama and then it was learned he has an ex-gay ministry in his church. He promptly threw them under the bus. He is now launching a website called, Jamesdobsondoesntspeakforme.com to rebut yesterday's statements from Dr. Dobson.Obama supporters may believe Dobson is taking on Obama to help McCain but that is the confusing part of this for me. Dobson has said he will not vote for McCain. So a pox on both your houses?Problem, … [Read more...]
