Johnny Mac? Meet Petard.

Johnny Mac? Meet Petard.

| February 23, 2008 | Reply

About ten days ago, Johnny Mac’s campaing was riding high on the announcement that they were coming off of the public funding of his campaign. Doing that freed him from spending limits and put him on a more equal footing to get an early spending run on the Democrats. Then, as if by magical coincidence, […]

This paragraph from the Obamessiah in last night’s debate could hurt him a lot: You know, I’ve heard from an Army captain who was the head of a rifle platoon–supposed to have 39 men in a rifle platoon. Ended up being sent to Afghanistan with 24 because 15 of those soldiers had been sent to […]

Deepak Chopra's Buddy Christ

I don’t think that Deepak Chopra needs to find a new Jesus. It looks to me like he’s invented a brand new one just fine all by himself. It’s a shame that he speaks with such conviction and apparent expertise while being so wrong about basic, generic Christian theology. I won’t get into those because […]

I can not resist posting this headline from the Daily Mail. Bush branded ‘cowboy of space’ after decision to shoot down malfunctioning satellite How can you read that headline and not hear Steve Miller’s voice in your head? I submit that, pace James Lileks, you can only do so if “cowboy of space” gives you […]

Did The New York Times Do John McCain A Solid?

Did The New York Times Do John McCain A Solid?

Here’s an e-mail that Kathryn Lopez says is indicative of “a lot” of e-mails she’s getting this morning. I’m the typical conservative who has not been happy with the McCain ascendancy, but the NYTimes has accomplished what Tojo did with Pearl Harbor. They have awoken a sleeping giant. We have been reminded who the real […]

Okay, now it’s getting ridiculous. Out came a Kleenex (or perhaps it was a hankie), and he wiped his nose. The near-capacity audience at the Reunion Arena, which his campaign said totaled 17,000, broke out in a slightly awkward applause. What were those dolts clapping at? Obama’s nose-blowing acumen? That he had hoped for a […]

I believe you’ll find that our satellite-shooting-down system is fully operational. At 10:29 p.m. last evening the Navy confirmed it hit a falling and potentially dangerous defense intelligence satellite using an SM-3 missile fired from the deck of the USS Lake Erie in the Northern Pacific. Officials say the missile likely destroyed its intended target, […]

The McCain Story is No Biggie, If You Ask Me.

The MSM is all atwitter over the New York Times story that John McCain might could have possibly had an affair with a lobbyist. Perhaps. The story is pretty thin gruel and isn’t anything particularly new, but it’s out there. Allah has a good roundup on the story and the reaction thereto. I don’t particularly […]

Obama, the Fascist

| February 20, 2008 | 11 Replies

Conservatives are often accused of wanting to “turn back the clock” but I don’t think you’ll want to find one that wants to turn it back to the good old fascist 1920′s though. Michelle Obama is another story entirely. Barack Obama will require you to work. He is going to demand that you shed your […]

Total Lunar Eclipse Tonight!

Total Lunar Eclipse Tonight!

It looks like most of the US is going to be in prime viewing territory to see an uncommon total lunar eclipse. I admit that I’m transfixed by events like this. They never fail to remind me of my place in the universe and fill me with awe for the great universe God has given […]
