Giving New Meaning to the Word “Insulting”

Monday, May 19th, 2008

In his attempt to convince Democrats that he can in fact attract white voters, Sen. Barack Obama has turned to none other than former KKK leader Sen. Robert Byrd. Byrd, who has come so far in his views on race that just a few years ago he used the term “white niggers” on FoxNews […]

McCain Nearly Strikes Right Tone on Judges

Tuesday, May 6th, 2008

I will readily state that I have major misgivings about our Presidential nominee when it comes to judicial nominations. His history in the Senate of spurning highly qualified nominees in favor of the media-grabbing “middle ground” gives me pause when I consider whether I can cast my ballot for the chosen one. That […]

Earmarker in Chief?

Wednesday, April 30th, 2008

I have a million ideas and America can’t afford them all.
– Hillary Rodham Clinton
In what could be a foreshadowing of what is likely to come in a new Clinton Administration. the junior Senator from New York requested a jaw-dropping $2.3 billion in earmarks this year, three times more than any Senator received in the appropriations […]

Romney Takes the Straw Poll; Brownback Effectively Out

Saturday, August 11th, 2007

Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney took Saturday’s Iowa Straw Poll, carrying 31% of the vote.  Former AR Gov. Mike Huckabee followed with 18%, defeating Sen. Sam Brownback, who essentially bet the ranch on the straw poll to take only 15%.  Rep. Tom Tancredo finished a respectable fourth, with nearly 14% of the vote.
The rest:
Tom Tancredo […]

Jim Gilmore Reads This Blog

Saturday, July 14th, 2007

Okay, so he probably doesn’t.  But he is taking my advice.  Gilmore said in an interview with The Politico that he is dropping his Presidential bid for lack of money and organization.  The question now is whether Gilmore left the race in time to salvage some semblance of a political career, in particular a 2008 Senate […]

Gilmore Planning Senate Bid?

Friday, July 13th, 2007

That’s the speculation by Cicero over at PoliticalInsider.com.  According to that theory, Gilmore is raising money not for his Presidential bid, but for a shot at the Senate seat likely to be vacated by Sen. John Warner.  If so, Gilmore is a far worse politician than he gets credit for.  He is not campaigning.  He […]

Deliver Us From RINOs

Wednesday, May 30th, 2007

H/T: Race42008: According to the American Spectator, Senator Tom Coburn, aka Senator Trainwreck, is considering entering the 2008 Presidential race.  This is blockbuster news.  Unlike any candidate currently in the field, Sen. Tom Coburn would not only placate all conservatives, but would excite conservatives of every stripe.
A former OBGYN, Coburn has delivered thousands of babies […]

Brownback, Paul Stand Out

Friday, May 4th, 2007

In tonight’s debate, Sen. Brownback and Rep. Paul set themselves apart. For me, Romney appeared way too slick and even flip-flopped during the debate on how important catching Bin Laden is. Rudy re-re-re-re-re clarified his position on abortion and, outside of terrorism/national security, really didn’t show me that he was conservative on anything. McCain seemed like […]

Kyl on McCain

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

Regular readers know that I´m no fan of Sen. McCain.  Sen. Kyl is.  He´s also one of the most reliable conservatives in the Senate.  For that reason, this is worth a read.

Very Funny

Thursday, March 1st, 2007

Sen. John McCain announced his candidacy on the David Letterman Show, a rather appropriate setting for him to suggest that he can even be involved in a conservative popularity contest.  Sen. McCain has repeatedly thrown conservatives and our values under the bus to keep his mug in the spotlight.  Among other things, he has supported […]
