Can any John McCain supporter tell me a fundamental difference between his energy policy and that of Barack Obama? Today he addressed our energy problems in two different venues.

Both Hot Air and The Weekly Standard noted the tip received by Kevin Aylward that a high honcho in the McCain campaign had made a very quiet trip to Alaska. They both conjecture that this means Johnny Mac is seriously looking at Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as a VP candidate. I’ll tell you this. If […]

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. During the feeding frenzy between 2001-2006, McCain’s voice was left in the wilderness, warning about the consequences of the Republican majorities. […]

Much, and I mean much, is being made of this comment by Hillary Clinton today. “My husband did not wrap up the nomination in 1992 until he won the California primary somewhere in the middle of June, right? We all remember Bobby Kennedy was assassinated in June in California. I don’t understand it,” she said, […]

Okay, I buy that Ed Morrissey really beleives what he’s saying, but it doesn’t make any sense to me. After November 5th, either Barack Obama or John McCain will be President. We can be politically correct and claim that Bob Barr or Ralph Nader could somehow overcome the combined weight of the Republican and Democratic […]

According to the McCain campaign, the whole brouhaha this morning over his immigration reform statements is just a big nothing. Jim Geraghty called the campaign and they assure him that the statements were “poorly worded”. Pardon my language here, folks, but that’s bullshit. Let’s go back and review his quotes: I believe we have to […]

Uh, oh, Senator McCain. You’ve lost John Hawkins and you know what they say. If you lose the Hawkins vote, you’ve pretty much lost the blogosphere. Hawkins has been one of the most faithful supporters of McCain, with two columns under his belt at the conservative gathering place Townhall.com. They were entitled “Why You’re Going […]

For all you McCain fans who keep telling me that you believe he’s a man of his word , I have a quick question. How do you explain his new statement that comprehensive immigration reform must be a “top priority”? After several of the business leaders complained about the difficulty in obtaining temporary H1B visas […]

I don’t often link to the Huffington Post but today I’m going to make two exceptions. Today, there’s an awful lot of strutting and high-fiving over a supposed foreign-policy gaffe that John McCain made. Here’s the “gaffe” in a nutshell: It seems the only way the neoconservatives are able to attack Barack Obama’s foreign policy […]

A staffer on Capitol Hill wrote this today this to Kathryn Jean Lopez of NRO. On the one hand, John McCain, who stands for smaller government and lower spending, is bemoaned as a non-conservative. On the other hand, House Republicans are chided for participating in a big spending farm bill boondoggle and not being conservative […]
