Turn Sarah Palin Loose

September 17th, 2008 · 1 Comment

The McCain campaign is making a huge mistake in letting the media and Obama campaign define Governor Sarah Palin.  They are keeping her under wraps, which is just stupid.  Let Sarah be Sarah!  They need to let her loose on the trail.  Let her deal with the media.  She will screw up like anyone else […]

The Boston Globe: Seeing through Obamanomics

September 14th, 2008 · No Comments

Seeing through Obamanomics – The Boston Globe. Taxation is not generosity, it is confiscation at gunpoint. Does Obama not understand the difference? Perhaps he doesn’t. Eager though he may be to compel “neighborliness” in others, he has not been nearly so avid about demonstrating it himself. Barack and Michelle Obama’s tax returns show that from […]

Summarizing the Bridge to Nowhere

September 9th, 2008 · No Comments

The Corner on National Review Online. That’s fair enough, though it is of course the opposite of what John Kerry did: he came around to the wrong position, she to the right one. But more importantly, Barack Obama himself (as well as Joe Biden) never did come around. They both voted for the bridge, twice. […]

September 9th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Tommy LaSorda – The Great Escape

September 8th, 2008 · No Comments

My youngest son and I went to see the Dodgers lose to the Padres tonight.  We saw Tommy LaSorda so we tried to meet him at the end of the game.  Some folks got a bit jerky so Tommy escaped before we could meet him.  I don’t blame him for getting out.  See the action […]
