For the last few weeks I have been thinking that perhaps there may be a future Cheney presidential candidacy. The problem is that I am not sure which Cheney, Richard or Elizabeth, or perhaps both on the same ticket. (Does anyone know where Dick and Liz are currently registered to vote?)… Read full post »
The news today that Karl Rove was deeply involved in the firing of David Iglesias is the final straw. Obama and Holder need to move. Now.
I know that Obama and the Congress want to move on with their agenda. However the mess is too large to leave behind and… Read full post »
The last I knew Grover Norquist was not a resident of Arizona. So can someone tell me why he has so much clout with our governor, state senators and members of the legislature?
Our elected state officials have taken an oath to represent the people of Arizona, not… Read full post »

Well, Keith Olbermann is back from vacation. If tonight's show was any indication, he missed us. A lot!
Forget Countdown's countdown, there were two big stories tonight, healthcare and the idea that there was a truce between Fox News and MSNBC.
First healthcare. Healthca… Read full post »
The Obamas are on the way to NYC for a date and the following is from the Associated Press.Even before the Obamas left Washington, the there-and-back trip drew criticism from Republicans. They questioned the president's decision to travel to New York for a night of entertainment during a recession… Read full post »
This isn't going to be a long piece. It is simply my reaction on hearing that Ted Olson (Bush) is co-counsel with David Bois (Gore) concerning the federal appeal of the California Supreme Court's decision regarding Proposition 8.
Beside being,well, beside myself thinking of Ted Olson arg… Read full post »
We are fifteen days from the election and it was a very interesting weekend. The big news, of course, is Colin Powell’s endorsement of Barack Obama. But, in no particular order, let’s review some of the e… Read full post »
This morning I was reading my normal newspapers via the Internet and I ran across an article in the NY Times regarding the federal “purchase” of shares in the nine largest banks in the United States. The first paragr… Read full post »
When, on October 6th, I started what I fully expected to be an ongoing thread about John McCain’s campaign resorting to negative campaigning against Barack Obama I entitled the first post Release The Hounds, Part 1. I didn’t expect Cindy McCain to delve into the fray other than to s/… Read full post »
I am very concerned about the recent incidents where Sarah Palin has been giving a speech and audience members have shouted “treason”, “terrorist” and “kill him” in reference to Obama.

First impressions of the debate were:
1. Who is McCain’s VP choice, Palin or Lieberman? He mentioned, by my count, Lieberman four times and nary a mention of Palin.
2. Speaking of Afghanistan, McCain said “we drove the Ru/… Read full post »
Well, it is happened. The McCain campaign has indeed gone negative and they don’t show any signs that this will change between now and election day.
It appears that the Roman Catholic Church, in at least some diocese, is getting involved once again in presidential politics. According to an article in the New York Times some bishops are seemingly imposing their morality upon… Read full post »
Starting late last night I started seeing news articles regarding the McCain campaign likely deciding to go for very negative campaigning very soon. Today it seems that it is true.
I have belonged to both political parties and have left both political parties. Basically I believed in part/… Read full post »
Tonight on the #4 item on Countdown with Keith Olbermann they did a boffo job of matching video bites of George W. Bush and Sarah Palin while performing on their respective campaigns. This really was an excellent piece of… Read full post »
I think it is safe to say that Sarah Palin exceeded most expectations in her debate with Joe Biden this evening. However her grade for the debate is at best a charitable "incomplete". She fully and openly ignored some questions and therefore has not provided answers to what were meaningfu… Read full post »
