A Time Of Renewal

December 31, 2008
By

Traditionally, we embrace the New Year as a time of renewal – nothing shocking in that. And we often see it that way personally, as well as on a larger scale. That can at times mean a business, a family, even a nation, it seems to me.

If you intend any personal...

Harry Reid: A Man Of Letters

December 31, 2008
By

In light of the Blago appointment controversy, some may recall Harry Reid sending a letter to Rush Limbaugh falsely accusing Limbaugh of demeaning our troops. Rush used the foolhardy letter to demean and diminish Reid and raise over $2 Million for our troops on Ebay.

To much fanfare, Reid recently issued another letter,...

Did Blago Actually Have To Appoint Someone?

December 30, 2008
By

Interesting that Blago's General Counsel has resigned. Maybe he took a deal from the Feds to save his own butt. But a serious question to the more lawyerly among us.

Blago plans on fighting the current charges, as well as impeachment. If I understand it correctly, Blago's constitutional responsibility in...

Today’s Blago-HaHa

December 30, 2008
By

Blago is starting to look like Obama's crazy uncle who stopped in for the Holidays and is now refusing to leave. Let's see – did his Senate appointee Burris raise money for Blago, along with not being able to win in several primaries? Check!

Is lily white Harry Reid poised to...

No Dignity: McKinney Ploughed By Several Israeli Sailors

December 30, 2008
By

Disgraced former lawmaker and Green Party presidential candidate Cynthia McKinny was reported to have been observed smoking a cigarette and trying to relax in the boat's lounge after a provocative encounter with several Israeli sailors from a patrol boat. Reports suggest that as McKinney was carrying a cell phone, she was viewed as a...

What’s A Few Billion Dollars, More Or Less?

December 30, 2008
By

As for bailouts, another $6 Billion for car companies thanks to Treasury, I guess. Is it even newsworthy at this point?

Arguably one of the worst, though subtle, impacts of today's bailout culture hit me on the head while listening to a non-bailout related news item on the car radio last night. The...

As You May Recall

December 30, 2008
By

I don't mean this so much as touting my own horn. I don't claim to be an expert but did take the time to consider several opinions I respect before claiming the kind of shift in the landscape we're going to see from the economic downturn some time...

Ancient And Pathetic Liberal Moron Alert

December 29, 2008
By

Oh, just how rich is this? Old morons never die, they just fade away until someone gives them a new soapbox at HuffPo.

The sending of a Christmas greeting by Chip Saltsman to the members of the Republican National Committee that includes a recording of the so-called parody, “Barack the Magic...

Time: You Know Whose Fault Gaza Is, Right?

December 29, 2008
By

It would be nice to see the media, including Time, get together and agree on a date certain when it will no longer be justifiable to blame the world's ills on Bush X number of days, or even years after Obama is sworn in.

What might be more difficult to find...

Are You Getting It Yet?

December 26, 2008
By

The inclusion of gasoline numbers drives some of this, though not in the numbers below. The numbers are below analyst expectations. My thinking is a re-alignment is taking place, whether we like it, or not.

Increased savings and reduced spending in what is a highly services-based economy like America's is a bad...

Of Worthless Brits And A Warning To Libs

December 25, 2008
By

A few thoughts on this insanity – a Brit TV channel televising Imightneedajob's speech. Sorry if they conflict with the tone of what should mostly be a day of joy and peace.

Dorothy Byrne, head of news and current affairs at Channel 4, said that the network had a responsibility to give a...

It’s Merry Christmas, Dammit

December 24, 2008
By

No, no complaints. Traditionally, I wrap up Christmas details on Christmas Eve, so I was out and about doing just that today. I always make it a point to say Merry Christmas whenever interacting with someone.

Usually clerk's faces light up a bit, I sense they feel liberated from not...

Chris Dodd

December 24, 2008
By

I did a photoshop of Chris "Friend of Angelo" Dodd a couple days ago I haven't posted. It's up below. As for the real Dodd, I find it terrifically sad. My perception is that he embodies the very worst of our politics - get your money for nothing and your credibility for...

Twas The Night Before Bailout 2.0

December 24, 2008
By

Twas the night before bailout in the House and the Senate

Not a dollar existed, Bush had already spent it

The gavels were set by their podiums with care

In hopes that Obama would soon be there

Taxpayers were restless, they clung to their wallets

While visions of tax hikes formed gas in their gullets;

And...

Prager On Sex For The Archaic

December 23, 2008
By

Good Lord! I'd suggest Prager doesn't know the Sixties happened, but I think you'd actually have to go further back than that to get your mind around Dennis Prager's advice on marital sex.

When a Woman Isnt in the Mood: Part I

 How about, Hey Babe, if you ain't giving it up again...

Forget Blago For Now, Let’s Move On

December 23, 2008
By

Hot Air has the Obama Blago-Rahma release. If I thought Obama or Emmanuel were guilty in some sense I'd strike a different tone. But even then, I have confidence in Patrick Fitzgerald to do his job. Were Rahm guilty of something he'd have fallen on his sword as "not...

Waxman: Obama’s “Very Active” Agenda

December 23, 2008
By

Henry Waxman did a brief interview with The New York Times Magazine this Sunday. I guess they couldn't get in touch with the mayor of Paris! He doesn't say much but it's still worth noting for a few things. Obama probably does have a "very active" domestic agenda planned and I doubt...

Another Male Bastion About To Fall

December 23, 2008
By

I was fine clicking through this "Hot Babes to Watch" in 2009 Fox feature. Until I came to Anna Rawson.

A Vogue and GQ model who shoots sub-par golf and just got her LPGA card? Male duffers like myself are doomed. Not even Tiger can compete with a looker who's got that...

Cohen: Inspirational Obama Just Another Political Hack!

December 23, 2008
By

Rich … even for the WaPo's Rich Cohen writing on the Rick Warren affair. It seems it's put a damper on his gay sister's party attitude. He is so sharp that he actually knew all this a year ago. I guess it served no good purpose to really hammer it home way...

Caroline Kennedy Is Perfect For The Senate

December 23, 2008
By

I don't understand why there's so much opposition to Caroline Kennedy for the NY Senate seat. From reading the Newsbuster's item linked below, she has a sense of entitlement, doesn't know the issues and generally works about two hours a week.

Seriously, what more could you ask for? It's almost as if...
