Corker

Just as Uncle is warming toward him, I am further cooling toward him. The “moderate” credentials have to take a hit here.

Having embed problems here, but as an update Jon Stewart really nailed this one, for the one or two of you who haven’t seen it. Just go here to watch the [...]

They knew EXACTLY what they were doing…

I’m laughing as I write this. Today, I received a tip from dear friend Elaine W. She said I should check out the ConservativeBible Project at Conservapedia. Now, I know that the good people at Conservapedia probably aren’t aware that the NIV is the preferred translation of conservative Christians (who are somehow unaware that the [...]

Run, Bob, Run

I agree with Dan… Bob Corker won’t run in 2012. I don’t know if he should or not. It will be apparent by the end of 2010 whether ambitious and talented Republicans should enter the race or bide their time until 2016. That all depends on where Obama is at that point. If he’s [...]

Good Questions. No, Really…

LGF has decided to bring some sanity to the health care debate… By composing (and hopefully eventually asking) good questions on the issue. Better questions than the one you’ll see from me in a few hours (stay tuned)… I almost hate to see this, because I fear our politicians are not prepared to actually answer [...]

Crazy Pool Winner

Alright – every one that bet on “It’s already happened, you idiot”, come collect your prize. You can also have the 2:1 payout on the Not Michelle Bachman… as far as I know the only nationally elected official to advance the euthanasia trope in July was Virginia Foxx of NC:

So Kudos to Rep. Fox for [...]

Spring is Dogwood Trees

Bradford Pears are big around here. And they’re beautiful – I have to grant that. They have an unfortunate smell and are prone to wind damage, but they are a gorgeous early blooming tree.

Me, I’m a Dogwood man. Cornus Florida, white only. (Pink is pretty – but keep them away from the white, please). [...]

Shades of Crayola

This Road to Recovery (pdf) will look great on the refrigerator right next to the Rush’s “Hand Made” Thanksgiving Turkey.

Seriously – I’m not great with budgets myself, but I think you’re supposed to put more numbers than just page numbers.

And the illustrations! This has more potential than if you have set yourself on fire do not [...]

Egg, Meet Face

If you enjoy the gallows humor, then the last few days since it was revealed that AIG is paying big bonuses to the managers that ran their business into the ground have probably been a real laugh riot for you.

Personally, I think that Dodd, Geithner & Obama deserve every bit of egg they get on their [...]

Park Bench Queens

As strident as I can be about some things we find to the right of us, the truth is that most of it doesn’t upset me. I often find myself losing faith in the rational faculties of my compatriots, but only rarely getting angry. But, if there’s one thing that really infuriates me about the [...]

Embryonic Adoption

RNC Chair Michael Steele is far from alone in the Republican Party among those who believe in promoting embryonic adoption.

We live in a nation where each year there are an average of about 500,000 children living in foster care, including 130,000 who are needing adoption.

Former foster children, by some accounts, make up 30 percent of the [...]
