“THE BULLY’S PULPIT” and “KUMBAYA” IS NOT OUR NATIONAL ANTHEM

I have no way of knowing all the facts regarding the New Jersey scandal swirling around Gov. Chris Christie, but I certainly have my suspicions. As the story goes, in retaliation for Fort Lee’s Mayor Mark Sokolich’s refusal to support Christie in his bid for re-election, Christie’s deputy chief of staff Bridget Anne Kelly ordered…

When Is a Traffic Jam A Greater Threat to Democracy Than an IRS Scandal?

It’s good to know that President Obama’s most loyal followers – the so-called mainstream media – have their priorities straight.  As reported by the (conservative) Media Research Center: “In less than 24 hours, the big three networks have devoted 17 times more coverage to a traffic scandal involving Chris Christie than they’ve allowed in the…

The Devil’s in the Details

One of the things I don’t get about ObamaCare is that they are overcharging young people for health care because those extra dollars are supposed to fund health care services for old folks. But at the same time, we all know that those death panels Sarah Palin warned us about will be denying meds and…

Honest: Would You Rather Win with Chris Christie or Lose with Ted Cruz?

Those sophisticates at Time magazine made a funny.  They put Chris Christie on their cover with the headline, “The Elephant in the Room.”  Get it?  Elephant.  Christie.  Time magazine did a junior high fat joke right there on its cover. Time’s executive editor Michael Duffy explained the cheap shot this way:   “Well, he’s obviously…

Anytime there’s any sort of infighting within the Republican Party, you can always count on the mainstream media to cover it laboriously. Their reason for doing so is easy to understand. As far as the media is concerned, practically any form of criticism against the Republicans is legitimate and justifiable. But when that criticism comes…

Will Chris Christie Pull a Schwarzenegger?

gop

When Arnold Schwarzenegger was elected as the Governor of California back in 2003, a lot of Republicans were excited. They had every right to be. One of their candidates winning a state-wide election in the deep-blue state of California was something many in the party never believed they’d see again in their lifetime. Sure, they…

Afterthoughts About Election Day 2012

obama-romney

It’s been almost a week since the Election.  Even though I knew my vote didn’t count – each candidate I voted for lost and just about every issue on which I either voted yes or no went the other way – here in Washington, I voted nonetheless. Of course, I’m very unhappy about the results of…
