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

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

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;
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.

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...
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...
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

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
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...
