James Pethokoukis seems less than impressed with Libertarian candidate for President Bob Barr’s economic proposals. He says, in part, …you would think [his] policy proposals would be bold ones with lots of details. Barr and Root are in the persuading business, not the victory business, for the moment, after all, so they need to fully […]

Now that former White House Press Spokesman Scott McClellan has written a book that all but calls the President a liar and his inner circle the most evil of all evils, you can expect the left and the MSM (but I repeat myself) to elevate him to hero status. Remember, though, that when McClellan was […]

Vets for Freedom has a new commercial out which asks Barack Obama two simple questions: Senator Obama, when will you finally decide to go back to Iraq, to see the progress first hand and when will you finally decide to meet one-on-one, unconditionally, with General Petraeus? The ad notes that Obama has not been to […]

Ed Morrissey is the latest person to bring out the notion that John McCain is a budget hawk and a tireless fighter against earmarks. …McCain has long fought pork-barrel spending and bloated federal budgets.

The Horror of Chinese Tyranny is Expressed in Dead Children

I can not imagine the depths of sorrow a parent must experience after the death of a child. Imagine, though, what it must feel like to have to beg permission from your own government in order to have another child or to have your second “illegal” child, whose very existence you kept from officials lest […]

Act Like Republicans!

Senator Tom Coburn is a breath of fresh air today. He has written an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal where he gives Republicans a simple piece of advice: act like Republicans. Voters are tired of buying a GOP package and finding a big-government liberal agenda inside. What we need is not new advertising, but […]

How many Duh-bamas are we going to get out of Barack’s Memorial Day appearances? Here’s the latest: Obama also spoke about his uncle, who was part of the American brigade that helped to liberate Auschwitz. He said the family legend is that, upon returning from war, his uncle spent six months in an attic. No, […]

Drunks for Obama!

Drunks for Obama!

| May 27, 2008 | Reply

I don’t know how useful a survey like this really is, but, for what it’s worth, Barack Obama is the chosen drinking buddy for people in bars who take jukebox-based polls. Which pretty much means the drunks hanging off the jukeboxes because the’re not quite able to stand on their own. Or, as I know […]
