The first of a couple posts tonight First, a semi-custom poll from yours truly via Pollster (I’m temporarily giving up on how to embed that). It’s just about a 5 point gap, which is near the margin of error. I removed all clearly biased polls on both sides. The only controversial removal I made was Rasmussen, […]


It’s a weird premise, I know. And I know I’m one of the few people who persistently defends the Killers’ sophomore effort. I read a criticism somewhere that someone had said that the album was something along the lines of “an HBO miniseries on the Dust Bowl starring the cast of Gossip Girl.” And that’s […]


I got into many conflicts with one of politics professors last year, and I kept on wondering why Obama kept proving me right. I remember a different, far more intelligent, professor once confessing that she thought the Baby Boomers may have actually ruined liberalism. Ambinder provides some must read context in a brilliant article: There […]


Via HuffPo: “They’re going to present us their recommendations. It’s their plan,” he said. “From what I know about it, I agree with it.” For McCain, the plan has virtue because it is backed by the generals and the ambassador to Iraq, Ryan Crocker. “I like it best because it’s what Ambassador Crocker and General […]


1. If there were another religious leader who gave tons of time and money to the poor, helped people find direction in their lives, was a world wide phenomenon, and believed in the legal segregation (it’s time to start using that word) of the races, he wouldn’t have been invited. I have no problem with […]


Just days after Matt Drudge posted a headline that read “Obama 4.8,” a headline that lasted less than 2 hours–As if to say this was now close race, Drudge doesn’t like polls anymore. The conservatve leaning Zogby poll just posted its latest numbers, showing Obama up 10. But apparently, to Drudge this story is still […]


This is one hell of a tricky “elbow in the paint”: From Kausfiles: Light This Candle! Obama’s new Spanish-language ad uses some out-of-context Limbaugh quotes to give the impression that McCain is anti-Latino. Jennifer Rubin says: Plainly, Obama is testing what the market for his negativity and non-New Politics will bear, daring McCain to go negative. Or […]


John McCain and Sarah Palin have fired off more mini-anyeurisms in my brain than I’d ever like to mention to Joe Biden. Everytime I think I am at the peak of my outrage, one of the two comes out and says something so completely ridiculous that I think it has to end the race. Palin […]


Drudge reports that Obama will name his VP on Wednesday. As Matt Drudge is the bane of most liberals, I’d almost expect that Obama will go ahead and name him (and it will be a him) tomorrow instead; as he may not get enough news time if he does it Thursday. Word has it that […]


Ouch…

Truth hurts. I fear the worst about Hillary’s intentions for the DNC, but damn, I’m no Maureen Dowd. She took it to a new level in today’s piece. Now if only Dowd could go 100 words without calling Obama three different nicknames…. Obama also allowed Hillary supporters to insert an absurd statement into the platform […]
