The Delivery Presents – The Moderate Myth and My Musical Malaise

The Delivery Presents – The Moderate Myth and My Musical Malaise

Episode 136 was a low-key affair that asked more questions than it answered, at least in the second half. First, though, I needed to deal with the news of the day — the retirement of a Senator from Maine and the inevitable “ZOMG THE MODERATES ARE GOING AWAY” narrative her retirement is sure to bring.

One guy does a robocall. The other guy doesn’t like it. We all get into a slap-fight. And this is good for who, exactly?

Which comes first in the First Amendment, the church or the state? Rick Santorum has it right.

What it going to be? Grab the pitchforks and torches, or slowly submit to the authority of jumped-up bureaucrats who hassle you simply because they can?

Nancy Pelosi's Gasoline Lies, Linked and Debunked

Jeff Goldstein has done us all a service, at great risk to his sanity. He delved into a Nancy Pelosi press release, wherein she blamed high gas prices on eeeeeeeee-vil speculators, Wall Street, Republicans, the Easter Bunny, and the wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald. Okay, I made up the latter two, but, really what can […]

I’m not going to sit here and say Mitt Romney is way out of touch with the average American. That would, I’m sure, get me attacked by hordes of stouthearted Republicans angry that I “attacked Romney from the left”. That he flings around $10,000 bets like they’re strands of beads at the most drunken Mardi […]

Episode 135 was…well, let’s just say that I do hope you have as much fun listening to it as I did making it. The second half turned into the Goofy Jimmie Fun Half-Hour of Funness and romped through the subjects of Bigfoot, my proposal to make a “Chasing Chupacabras” television show, the Nativity, and the […]

Okay, so maybe I’ve lost my blogging mojo. I’ve not written on back to back days here in forever. The Presidential primary season has ground me down to the point where my soul is a shriveled nub of cynicism and my desire to dive into the fray is lower than my desire to listen to […]

I made a stunning discovery while recording this week’s episode of The Delivery: Mitt Romney has no intention on cutting the size of government. Now, I know that sounds like a baseless attack on Romney by a guy who is on record as saying he’d vote for a half-eaten and moldering ham sandwich rather than […]

Just when you thought the abortion debate couldn’t get any more silly and shrill, here comes the pro-abortion crew, screaming into the breach created by a new law in Virginia. First, let me hip you to the law itself. What the state did was to modify an already existing law regarding what abortion providers must […]
