Strong Arm?

Rumor Has it that any democrat who wants Obama to campaign for them come November had best vote for health care.  Joe Biden too. How arrogant can you get?  Does he actually think that’s going to work?  Obama has been the kiss of death to any democrat who runs for office.  And Biden.  You might as …

He Doth Protest Too Much

Paul  Hodes is out there talking up a storm about how he’s “not going to be bullied into changing his position” on Health care.  I almost fell out of my chair laughing.  I never realized he had his own position, but if that’s what he’s calling it fine. But consider this first because it tells …

Linguists For Hodes

  One of the joys of blogging is the anonymous commenters who drop the bottle of Booth’s Dry Gin long enough to type something lucid. (Lucid is a stretch)   Most of these word-smiths are probably NHDP staffers who can’t find anything better to do while they watch the party lose special election after special election on …

By The Pricking Of My Thumbs…

The bipartisan surge against the democrats ill-gained, late night, last minute LLC tax smells faintly of rotting eggs.  But I fear there is another secret formula brewing in darkened democrat controlled chambers where Norelli,  Almy, and (insert name of third witch here) are brewing up bigger trouble.  Charlie Arlinghaus, in his column in this mornings …

Taxaholics

It takes commitment to vote for a new tax, even one whose cover story was as unlikely to have any affect as HB 1679.  But there are those who like to tax and those who love it, and the supporters of the ‘Soft Drink Tax’ drew a line in the High Fructose Corn Syrup and stood …

Hypocrats (again)

Being a liberal means never having to do better than whomever you can find that can be shown to be as bad or worse than whatever it is you are being accused of.  This, courtesy of Mike Brunelle, NHDP XO, as reported in this morning’s Union Leader, where Comrade Brunelle dismisses a request by the …
