Feather Or A Black Eye

On the Strickland campaign, one of our daily traditions was to judge each day as either a feather in our cap or a black eye. Net positive day was a feather, net negative was a black eye. Unfortunately, we lacked a symbol for repeatedly kicking ourselves in the crotch. The…

Who would James Bond vote for?

I think this most recent attempt by Maureen Dowd to tar Barack Obama as Teh Ghey will backfire. It’s a classic example of her worst impulse to think that she’s speaking for the common man by assuming that the common man is 100% douchebag. This is empathy, you know. Her…

Media Bias About Bias

First, a few Google News results: Obama + arrogant. Obama + presumptuous. McCain + angry. McCain + confused. Right now, I’m watching Reliable Sources cover whether or not Barack Obama was given too much media coverage (the obvious inflection being good media coverage). But I’ve watched a ton of coverage…

America’s Right To Whiny Ass Babydom

Don Surber is angry – mind-rattlingly angry – that Barack Obama dared to insult America in Germany. Here are the offending words, dear readers, and I warn you that this is neither for the faint of heart nor the patriotic of spirit, threatening to rend your heart from your body…

One Step Forward…

In the aftermath of Obama’s Berlin speech, I do believe that Kyra Phillips of CNN just called Kenya his home country. The quote: “It’s interesting, Christianne pointed out, that the Senator did talk about his mother, born in the heartland of America, but ‘my father grew up herding goats in…

Der Decembrists?

The various complaints with Barack Obama’s appearance in Germany have ranged from location to content. Now, we see another line of attack lining up: Obama’s luring people with music and food. We all remember the Decembrists “controversy”, wherein he seemed to draw every Decembrists fan in the continental United States…

Mirror, Mirror On The Wall…

…Who’s the fascistest of them all? You see, Obama is not only too popular, but he also takes pictures from the side. Reminds me of another power-mad tyrant with a strange view of his own Messianic status… Incidentally, on the fascist front, Powerline provides us the first look into Obama’s…

Unhinged Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell supporter Donnelly provides comic relief during House hearing

Elaine Donnelly, president of the Center for Military Readiness, testified at today’s House Armed Services Personnel Subcommittee’s hearings on “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” and if I were on the side of the folks who want to continue the ban on gays and lesbians openly serving, I’d lock her up for…

Blackazoid’s Greatest Enemy

Could it be…himself????? CNN decides to investigate the possible impact that the Greatest Black Superhero On Earth will have on the black community. Because they’re in the midst of studying the black community in America, the obvious thing to do is to consider how Barack Obama will make white people…

McCain: Ready To Concede

It’s got to be hard to be John McCain. Your opponent raises as much in one month as you do in three. You’ve managed to take the single constant partisan issue advantage you have, national security, and squander it away because of an ill-conceived war. You appear to know less…
