David Brooks: Garbage In Garbage Out

David Brooks: Garbage In Garbage Out

| November 14, 2008 | Reply

I know that more than a couple bloggers have chimed in on David Brooks’ recent column in the New York Times wherein he divides conservatives up as either “traditionalists” or “reformers” then tries to figure out what it all means. Brooks being Brooks, he more or less muddles through things until he reaches the general […]

A Few Questions, Before Tuesday, If He Has the Guts to Answer Them

It’s definitely time for a pre-election pick-me up, so how about a little red meat in the form of a few questions John McCain could ask Barack Obama before he is crowned President of the World on Tuesday? I’ll say that if any of our national media outlets had asked these questions in more than […]

So the scandal du jour, fit for not just one but two articles in today’s New York Times (including one on the front page), is that the Republican National Committee shelled out $150,000 for clothing and other beautification amenities for Sarah Palin. Apparently, this is supposed to outrage me. Color me less than entranced. I […]

Stacy McCain may have found the next Presidential candidate. Hey, why not? He’s been vetted more thoroughly at this point than Barack Obama has.

I’m starting to think that the entire election is riding on tonight’s debate. I know how that reads, but if John McCain turns in a mediocre performance, doesn’t substantially address the mortgage crisis and explain just who was in the middle of the whole mess, and doesn’t knock Obama off his game, this thing could […]

If you’re a Democrat, and CNN runs a detailed report telling viewers how you lied, you know you’re in trouble. If you’re Barack Obama and this happens, it means you told a lie so immense that you’d need two Navigators from the Spacing Guild to fold space around it to hide it away. There is […]

The campaign rhetoric has certainly heated up this weekend. Sarah Palin came out and scolded Barack Obama for “palling around with terrorists”, a charge the Obama campaign tried to rebut with a petulant whine. For his part, Obama has done Karate Kid on the McCain campaign with some “political jujitsu”. He’s accusing John McCain of […]

At this point, as Robert McCain has pointed out quite amply, John McCain is just about cooked. he’s managed to run a worse campaign than John Kerry did in 2004, which I thought was impossible. However, I don’t think he’s done. I think there is one thing he can do right now that will not […]

I’m set to begin the live-blogging, and I’m looking forward to seeing what each candidate brings to the table for us tonight. Check here for my pre-debate comments. This may not be the Thrilla in Manila, but I’m guessing that someone’s campaign is going to take a chin shot tonight. And here’s a nice bit […]

Robert McCain has written the column I wish I had thought to write two weeks ago. I’ve had this thought buzzing around my head like a gnat lately and I haven’t been able to get my hands on it. This whole bailout idea repulses me on a level that I’ve been at a loss to […]
