The Delivery Presents – Thank You for the Past Two

If it seems like I belabor the point in Episode Eleventy-One* that The Delivery has been around for two years, blame it on glee. When I recorded my first show with SMP Mike on September 10, 2009 (we recorded on Thursdays back then, moved back a day to Wednesday, then eventually settled on Tuesday nights), […]

I didn’t watch the Presidential debate last night. I even shut down my Twitter feed so I wouldn’t have to spend an hour ranting about it. Oh, I wouldn’t have had a problem with the candidates. I think they’ll all acquit themselves just fine and, if I need to, I’ll read the debate transcript tomorrow […]

Something very wicked happened in the Republican presidential campaign today, and we on the right should not stand for it. Here is the setup. Most of the candidates attended a debate of sorts today in South Carolina called the Palmetto Freedom Forum, which was headlined by Senator Jim Demint, Rep. Steve King, and the head […]

friend, the Lonely Conservative, is puzzled by a question posed by left-wing blogger Steve Benen. Why, they wonder, is Jon Huntsman getting so much press right now? Benen noted that he was scheduled to appear on six national shows in the past two weeks even though he barely appears as a blip on any Presidential […]

If you’re one of the unfortunate half dozen or so people who watch Ed Schultz’ television show on MS-NBC, you’ll know that he is about as in the bag for the Democratic Party as one can be without actually being in a large burlap sack with the DNC logo printed on it. Normally, he’s the […]

On Friday, the Mouth of Sauron assured us that the President’s three-state bus tour was not at all a campaign trip. I want to quote exactly what he said, if for no other reason than to give you a sense of how outrageous his lie really was. “The fact is that the president is not […]

So, the Republican Presidential field is down by one today as Tim Pawlenty, former Governor of Minnesota, has bowed out. Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty said Sunday that he’s dropping out of the Republican presidential race, just hours after finishing a disappointing third in the Iowa Straw Poll. “We needed to get some lift to […]

I was a little bit surprised at the speed with which the Obama campaign responded to Texas Governor Rick Perry’s formal entry into the 2012 race. Politico has the statement only minutes after Perry’s speech ended, which made me wonder how the President’s people could work so fast. Surely the President’s re-election staff is busy […]

It’s official; Texas Governor Rick Perry is in the 2012 Presidential race. He made his announcement today at the Red State Gathering in South Carolina with a rousing speech that was equal part indictment of the poor performance of our current President and unabashed optimism about what America can do in the future. Today, on […]

Jonah Goldberg had a post this morning at The Corner that touched on the subject of a memorable half of The Delivery. In Episode 97, I mused that what we have in America is not so much a crisis of leadership or a lack of good ideas but a dearth of confidence in America itself. […]
