A Message from Artur Davis…Former Democrat Congressman from Alabama

by Steve MacDonald August 29, 2012

As Ed Morrissey points out what a great trade this was.  The Democrats got Charlie Crist for their convention, we get Artur Davis. Davis lost his faith in the Democrats because Obama made him see what had become of that Party.  Crist veered left in pursuit of political power when it became clear that he […]

You can tell that it is the Political Silly Season big time when….

by Skip August 29, 2012

…you start getting multiple political poll calls per day.  Up until last week, it was only every once in a while. I have now been called 8 times in two days.  My feeling is that it is going to intensify.  I don’t mind when I have the time – but I extremely do mind when […]

Notable Quote – Sultan Knish

by Skip August 29, 2012

It is a conflict between a system of bureaucratic collectivism and a society of individuals. It is not a conflict between the rich […]

It wasn’t like he (Quayle) repeated the mistake in all 57 states, or more precisely in Beaverton, Ore., in May 2008; or while traveling on the “Intercontinental” railroad […]

by Tim Condon August 29, 2012

Heh. It could also be entitled, “Why the Mainstream Media Sucks.” In any event, the cartoonist, Michael Ramirez, also turns out to be an excellent writer, with an analysis of MSM bias here in Investors Business Daily. Enjoy both…the cartoon and the explanatory column.

There Are No Republicans For Obama

by Steve MacDonald August 29, 2012

Back in 2008, and I may have shared this story before, I was discussing with a longtime friend my conclusion that then candidate John McCain was not really a ‘Republican.’  He could not understand why so I asked my baptist minister friend…”there are a lot of ‘interpretations’ of Christianity, and for the most part each […]
