Democrats Gather Tough-guy Hollywood Support

I see where Hillary has picked up an endorsement from Jack Nicholson.  Obama, for his part, has picked up Robert De Niro’s support.

“Mrs. Clinton has been involved in issues, everything from health care, which we know and prison reform and helping the military, speaking for women and speaking for Americans,” Nicholson said.

Well, Jack doesn’t have to handle the truth when there’s not substance to argue over.  Strangely, a similar story with De Niro:

De Niro began his remarks with a backhanded compliment: “Barack Obama does not have the experience to be president of the United States.” The crowd booed, but De Niro continued, and his intent was clear: Obama didn’t have the experience to get the country into a misguided war, or


It’s Super Tuesday… Get Out And Vote!!!

Where ever you may be in the United States, if you are in a state where a Primary or Caucus is occurring, go and vote, talk, participate.  Be part of the process, part of the solution, part of making America Great!

We can only be strong if we all work together and support each other, and this process is one of the key drivers to successfully building the parties up to the main event.  You really can make a difference! 


I Underwhelm Myself

republican-elephant.jpgI promised I would try and take a position on the remaining candidates before things are settled. I’m probably too late, but tomorrow still has possibilities for Romney. The party is definitely looking like it’s leaning to port, and it’s what we have to work with.

Of the remaining candidates, I definitely prefer Mitt Romney over John McCain. It’s very difficult for me to stand up and provide the level of enthusiasm for Mitt that I have for Fred Thompson, for the simple reason that Romney is not what I think of as “conservative”. He’s certainly more conservative than McCain, but he still holds more centrist views in many areas. I’m not trying to ignore Huckabee… oh, wait, yes I am. I just can’t take …


It’s Not the End

I’ve read and heard a number of conservatives (and I myself have struggled with this) who appear to be giving up on this year’s elections already. I’m disappointed. Ann Coulter certainly exuded an extreme version of the conservative angst (although she’s definitely on the wrong track by suggesting Hillary is a viable alternative to McCain). However just as effective as Coulter’s idea of supporting Clinton are the following ideas:

  1. Vote for any candidate on the ballot other than McCain
  2. Don’t vote for any candidate for President
  3. Skip the election altogether

A man named Rick Warren penned these words in the book The Purpose Driven Life:

It’s not about you.

I think this applies here, with a few more words: “It’s not about the President, …

The Captain tosses Coulter Overboard

Ann Coulter wants to campaign for Hillary if McCain is nominated… geez.  She’s out of line, but that’s like saying Michael Savage is a little extreme.  Really, this is nothing more than a lot of self-aggrandizing noise. 

What’s really painful is how the MSM sees people like Coulter and Savage as reps for the conservative movement… that too is off the mark and we need to find appropriate ways to show what conservatism really means.

Ed Morrissey nails this one, and credit to Sister Toldjah for pointing me there early today.  Blue Crab Boulevard is ont it as well.…


The Aftermath, and the Wuss

It’s been a busy day in politics…

John Edwards has apparently been paying attention to our suggestions. He has decided to drop out of the race leaving no endorsement (yet).  Any bets on who that helps?

Rudy Giuliani also has departed, providing an endorsement to John McCain. Nice.  Most people seem to agree that McCain is not as conservative as Romney, just like the Easter Bunny isn’t as real as Santa Claus (most people can at least say they’ve had a conversation with Santa, not with the Bunny).  Hucklebee is apparently the only one waiting for an official invitation to leave (Ron Paul hasn’t spent all his money yet, so we may be stuck with him longer than Nader).

Speaking of Ralph Nader, it …


The State of the Union – No Response

I’m going to keep it simple.  Bush did a great job.  Clear well thought-out plans to address a number of our country’s current issues.  I’m sorry, and I know they’re paid to be Democrats and all, but do the Democrats had to act like they were just barely putting up with his presence?  Hillary looked like she was miserable.  Obama looked thoughtful (kind of like how Kennedy looked, except Ted looked like he was thinking about gas).   My opinion is that Congress needs to work with Bush on the recommendations he made for education, health care, military funding, elimination of earmarks, and holding down taxes.

What I really don’t get is, why the pathetic Democratic response?  Kathleen Sebelius, Governor of Kansas, had nothing concrete to …


Westboro – As Phake As You Can Get

My good buddy Bithead made passing mention yesterday of yet another of Westboro’s (the “church” from Topeka Hell) planned outings, this one to Heath Ledger’s funeral.  He rightfully calls them the “slugs” they are, but then says (to Westboro):

You’re in the business, in the end, of changing minds.

Sorry, my friend, they’re not in that business at all.  And it is about hate… that is, provoking others into hating them so much that people will make the unfortunate mistake of reacting to this group’s “right” of free speech with even the smallest physical violence.  And all it takes is a shove.  Or a punch.  Or a brawl.  Any way you look at it, they intentionally put themselves in a position from which they …


Hillary’s Gonna Get Away With It

I’m just a bit annoyed and disappointed this morning.  I’ve been plugging around the blog-s-phere hoping to see some good solid belly-aching about what Clinton is trying to get away with, and all I’m finding (probably 95% — of the comments, not the blog articles) is discussion about how maybe we should take a look at this, maybe Hillary’s right, maybe the DNC made a mistake and we need to correct it by going along with Hillary.  Where is the outrage?  Why aren’t we all incensed by this?   At the PoliGazette, Dan Pawson hit it out of the park in his article titled Cheater, which he closes with:

Anyone really up for four years of this deceit?

So, I read through the comments, …
