The Delivery Presents – Robert Davi on Music and Why the Good Stuff is Important

The Delivery Presents – Robert Davi on Music and Why the Good Stuff is Important

If you want to know why I love social media, look no farther than Episode 132. Without Twitter, it could not have happened and here’s why. A couple of months ago, I had a brief exchange with actor, director, and musician Robert Davi about his new album Davi Sings Sinatra: On the Road to Romance. […]

President Obama: The State of the Union is…Hey! Get Back in Line, You!

I admit, I didn’t watch President Obama’s State of the Union address. I rarely watch big Presidential speeches live; I get a far better sense of the speech when I wait a little bit and read the full text (and you can get that text from the peerless Andrew Malcolm here). I’m glad I read […]

If we can judge Mitt Romney by the gang of Republicans who couldn’t be bothered to lift a finger over the past three years to so much as slow down Barack Obama’s progressive rampage but suddenly find themselves possessed with boundless energy to cast Newt Gingrich as the Greatest Villain of Our Time, then we can surely judge Gingrich by them as well.

For Episode 131, I turned to one of the smartest and coolest people I know — Ben Domenech of the Coffee and Markets podcast, among other places — to join me for the entire show. I won’t even begin to describe everything you’ll get in the whole hour, but I’ll give you two little tidbits. […]

I believe I have seen the future of Maryland politics and his name is Dan Bongino. He is a former Secret Service agent and New York City police officer, husband to a wife who legally emigrated from Colombia, and he’s running for the United States Senate seat currently held by Ben Cardin. My friend Jim […]

By now, you know from listening to the show that I can get a little bit excitable, and that oftentimes that excitability comes out against those who would be my political allies. That happened again in Episode 130. I’ve seen a lot of blog posts and news articles about the housing and credit crisis, but […]

When I first saw this, I swore to myself it had to be some sort of Photoshopped spoof. It’s not, though. This is a real tweet from the official Newsweek Twitter account. [blackbirdpie url="https://twitter.com/#!/Newsweek/status/158668762579599360"] And this is the picture behind that link. Great, huh? I remember when the magazine was respectable, when its editors and […]

I think that Episode 128 may mark the point at which you could hear me flat-out give up on the belief that the Republican Party has any real interest in smaller, more responsible government. There are four stories from the past few years that all point to the massive amount of arrogance, incompetence, and corruption […]

Debbie Wasserman-Schultz' Grotesque Puppet Show — Now with Tea Parties!

I hesitate to call DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz a liar, but I have noticed that she’s taken a precipitous turn toward partisan claptrap that has no basis in reality in her role as Official Spokesjerk of the Democratic Party. “We need to make sure that we tone things down, particularly in light of the […]
