Foolish Heart

| September 5, 2008 | Comments (3)

I wonder how much money these musicians lost by not removing the stick from their backsides? Ann and Nancy Wilson are pissed at the Republican Party and have fired off a cease and desist letter to the McCain/Palin campaign. Specifically, the Heart women are upset that the GOP has used their classic “Barracuda” as a [...]

Obama’s Speech Finishes Second in the Ratings. Barely.

| September 5, 2008 | Comments (0)

So, it turns out that Obama’s much-anticipated speech, hyped by the MSM beyond all reason or propriety, was barely the second most popular speech of the conventions and only because Palin’s speech wasn’t shown on a few possibly racist networks. The note here on Palin’s speech is that she only came about 1.1 million short [...]

John McCain, as Uninspiring as his Running Mate Was Electric

| September 4, 2008 | Comments (2)

I have to say that, thus far, I’m terribly unimpressed with John McCain’s speech. He’s a good enough speaker, but it seems like he’s giving a speech to an audience that simply isn’t there. He’s also spending way too much time on bipartisanship. Way, way too much time. This is a political pet peeve of [...]

If You Thought the Left Was Panicking Before…

| September 4, 2008 | Comments (1)

How good has Sarah Palin been for John McCain so far? Despite some of the most ridiculous attacks yet seen during a modern Presidential campaign, Palin has helped McCain close eight points in three days. And the convention isn’t over yet. Is Barack Obama in deep trouble? Is the progressive left scared out of what [...]

Ah, videos from last night. Rare, bloody red meat from Rudy G as an appetizer and a spicy-sweet main course from Sarah Palin.

Did Sarah Palin Just Make Conservatism Incredibly Cool Again?

| September 3, 2008 | Comments (4)

Sarah Palin’s speech was a dead-bang winner tonight. She introduced herself with grace and more than a glint of steel. She bragged on her family, took on the scurrilous rumor-mongering media, and walked us through the path that has led her to the podium tonight. She batted Barack Obama around like a cat toy for [...]

Rudy on Freaking Fire!

| September 3, 2008 | Comments (2)

Wow is Rudy Giuliani on fire tonight. He has a great speech and at least a half-dozen times he’s gone off-script to acknowledge the crowd’s applause. He’s smiling and laughing and even led the crowd briefly in a chant of “Drill Baby, Drill!” that went on for a couple minutes. He’s having a blast and [...]

Progressive Protestors Attack Crowd, Injure Old Woman

| September 3, 2008 | Comments (0)

I note Gateway Pundit’s post only to say that there is a marked difference between Freedom of Speech and criminal behavior. It appears that the progressives do not know the difference. Or they don’t care. It takes some kind of courage to assault people with bleach and to injure an 80 year-old woman. I’d say [...]
