If you’re not familiar with the name, let me introduce you. Dr. Fernandez holds dual citizenship in America and Mexico. Until just this year, he was a member of Vincente Fox’s cabinet in Mexico where he held the position of director of the Office for Mexicans Abroad. There’s only been one director – the entire […]

You know who would make a great potential Vice President for Mitt Romney? Senator Jeff Sessions. He wants to put the candidates’ position on illegal immigration issues on record and has sent around a questionnaire asking them for yes or no answers to some relatively simple questions. Nice. If Romney or Giuliani are really smart, […]

See what happens, kids when you leave your toys laying around on the stairs? A WOULD-be suicide bomber fell down a flight of stairs and blew himself up as he headed out for an attack in Afghanistan, police say. It was the second such incident in two days, with another man killing himself and three […]

Robert Stacy McCain has an interesting, though brief, interview with Roger L. Simon. Simon is the founder and head of Pajamas Media. Much of the interview is on Fred Thompson and his embrace of blogs and what Simon calls “new media” in his campaign. I think most of what he says is on target (and […]

Here are some excerpts of a recent speech from a Republican Presidential candidate. Would you consider him conservative or not, based on these excerpts? If I’m President of this country, I will roll up my sleeves in the first 100 days I’m in office, and I will personally bring together industry, labor, Congressional and state […]

So You're Not Sick Of Cloverfield Yet, Huh?

So You're Not Sick Of Cloverfield Yet, Huh?

Now, this is a pretty good review of Cloverfield. It may be my second-favorite review (behind this one). There are some spoilers, but nothing you probably haven’t already seen. Read it especially for his take on Cthulhu, which is something that I didn’t really mention much at all. I like his suggestion. And I completely […]

And the leading candidate for the Redskins head coaching job might be Jim Fassel. Jim Fassel?!? Geez, why not hire a zombie Tom Landry to coach the team. At least he has a career winning record. Jim Fassel?? The guy coached a division rival for six years or so. Didn’t Dan learn anything from watching […]

David Freddoso, until recently a confirmed Fredhead like me, saw much to like in John McCain’s statement to the marchers at yesterday’s March for Life. Here’s the bit he thought was pretty good: While our nation struggles with the issue of abortion and the division it has wrought on our society and culture, Americans on […]

Louisiana Could Have Gone for Fred

| January 23, 2008 | 4 Replies

Jim Geraghty says, after some investigation, that had Fred stayed in he could have won Louisiana. That win would have put him firmly in second in the delegate total. Instead, the state went pretty much for No One At All. Great. I still have no idea who to back at this point and now I […]
