Live From Minnesota, It`s Saturday Night

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

From the state that elected Jesse Ventura Governor, another political freak show has emerged.  Not very funny comedian Al Franken has decided to challenge Sen. Norm Coleman.  Franken, of bankrupt radio station Air America fame, recently moved back to Minnesota shortly after it became apparent that his brainchild was a flop.  Now, he expects the […]

Senators Speaking Recklessly on Iran

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

A number of Senators are currently advocating a policy that would legitimize the regime in Iran, the same regime that is allegedly engaging in acts of war against the United States in Iraq.  The oppressive Iranian regime is headed by an egomaniac who is concerned only with increasing his power and influence in the region, including […]

Political Wire: A Must-Read

Wednesday, January 31st, 2007

In late 2005, I decided to quit my job and go traveling.  I was working in politics, a career to which I plan on returning, and was and am a political junkie.  I have to know what`s going on in the political world, and I have to know it now.  Taegan Goddard has made that […]

Too Funny

Monday, January 29th, 2007

Someone finally clarified the relationship between Lindsey Graham and John McCain.

Dirty Harry Strikes Again

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

Once again, Sen. Harry Reid finds himself in the middle of an ethics scandal.  Apparently, he managed to get himself a discount of over 90% on land in northern Arizona from those with business pending before Congress.  The culture of corruption strikes again.  At the very least, this is a public relations disaster for the […]

Kerry to Seek Reelection

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

Sen. John Kerry has decided against seeking the 2008 Presidential nomination and instead will seek reelection.  His decision will keep Democrat politicos in place for yet another six years, as those looking to move up have just had the rug pulled out from under them.  Gov. Mitt Romney will have the chance to enter the […]

SOTU: It`s Going to be a Long Two Years

Wednesday, January 24th, 2007

While many on the right are praising the President`s speech, I found myself unconvinced that the next two years will be any better than the previous two.  On both the domestic agenda and foreign policy, the President showed relative weakness.  He never had much resolve for the conservative domestic agenda, but it seemed as though […]

Brownback Speaks to Activists; Romney Phones It In

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

At today`s March for Life, Sen. Sam Brownback spoke to activists, as he has done for a decade, about the need to overturn Roe, arguably the worst abomination of constitutional law.  Brownback was well received, and reportedly about ten percent of marchers wore Brownback stickers.  Brownback also addressed a conference of pro-life bloggers.
Meanwhile, showing his new-found […]

If I Can`t Have Musgrave

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

then this wouldn`t be a bad second choice.  Apparently former RNC Chair and Ambassador to the Vatican Jim Nicholson is considering a Senate bid to replace retiring Sen. Wayne Allard.  Nicholson would make a much better Senator than social liberal former Rep. Scott McInnis, who has so far gotten most of the buzz.  Nicholson has […]

Brownback Goes All In

Monday, January 22nd, 2007

This Saturday, the top Republican contender about whom questions of conservatism cannot be raised, entered the 2008 Presidential race.  Sen. Sam Brownback faces an uphill battle against the better known candidates, but his name recognition will grow as Republican caucus and primary voters seek out a candidate who speaks to them, rather than to Massachusetts liberals […]
