I’d Like To Thank New Hampshire’s Establishment Republicans

Speaking for myself, I’d like to say thank You. No, really. You have shown yourselves to be nothing more than the childish, backstabbing, power hungry hypocrites we all knew you were. You don’t care about the New Hampshire Republican party, you just care about who is running it and your place in the pecking order.

Palin for President (?)

It seems obvious that Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is going to announce her intention to run for the Republican nomination on September third, the three year anniversary of her accepting the nomination for Vice President. The pundits are lining up in agreement.

While Everyone is Pissed Off at Rick Perry

Romney is not the presumptive winner, not because of Rick Perry, but because most Republicans really are still looking for a candidate they can get behind and Perry is the best high-profile “not Romney” candidate to come forward.

Where Your Other Facebook Friends Roam

If you are trying to expand your audience, engage with more people, or use inbound and conversational marketing to create word of mouth brand recognition, you need to share some love. Remember, you don’t have 900 facebook friends so you can ignore 865 of them.

Do Students Like Re-Distribution or Not?

In what may well be the best independent video I have seen in a while, some savvy college students ask their peers (typical tax the rich types) if they would sign a petition. The plan?

Bernanke’s Bender

Bernanke, who sources confirmed was “totally sloshed,” arrived at the drinking establishment at approximately 5:30 p.m., ensconced himself upon a bar stool, and consumed several bottles of Miller High Life and a half-dozen shots of whiskey while loudly proclaiming to any patron who would listen that the economic outlook was “pretty goddamned awful if you want the God’s honest truth.”

We Now Know Obama’s 2012 Campaign Slogan

If you have heard any of the remarks on Obama’s Ditch-dodging–Blame Bus-Two Minutes Hate “listening tour” then you know exactly how the soon to be former President plans to spin the present circumstances.

Jay Severin Returns to Boston Radio

People familiar with Severin will know he sells himself as a libertarian leaning right winger, which is in itself suspect if you spend any time listening, but his style and manner have a history of building a broad range of listeners.

The One You Feed

“My son, there is a battle between two wolves inside us all. One is Evil. It is anger, jealousy, greed, resentment, inferiority, lies, & ego. The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, humility, kindness, empathy, & truth.”
