Less than seven hours left. Jermone talks it up and Edwards is obviously "on fire," then there's Obama, but other candidates too, including Hillary Clinton. If you've got it, give it. Act Blue ... more here

Rudy, Mrs. Rudy, and the Thug

By |March 31st, 2007|

I don't blame any woman or man for marrying up. But there's something about Mrs. Rudy that smacks of classic golddigger material, but maybe it's only of the political variety. In an interview with Barbara Walters, former New York City Mayor and presidential candidate Rudy Giuliani said that if elected president, he would have no [...]

Another ‘Hardball’ Hit Job

By |March 31st, 2007|

As I said yesterday, I needed a good laugh as the week closed out. Unfortunately, I didn't get it on "Hardball." At one point in the show on Thursday the topic of discussion turned to a USAToday poll. But no, it wasn't about Hillary's chances for president. It is one of Chris Matthews' favorite topics, [...]

Stupid Gun Law

By |March 29th, 2007|

This is likely the stupidest thing you're ever going to read regarding U.S. gun laws. Members of Congress and designated employees can bring unloaded guns into the Capitol. The lawmakers can even load the guns once inside their offices. But there is a hitch: They cannot bring guns through the District's streets on their way [...]

Alberto's Embarrassment C-SPAN Sampson testimony There will be an hour break around 12:30 p.m., but it will resume afterwards. Video of Sampson's opening statement is what you'd expect. Embarrassing.

After the Veto

By |March 29th, 2007|

After the Veto Democrats have two big wins under their belt. Speaker Pelosi and Senator Reid held tough and Republicans buckled, passing the buck to Bush who all of a sudden had an attack of spending guilt; this after instituting the most profligate spending spree since Lyndon Johnson, with one-quarter the affect for Americans. Anything [...]

‘MC Rove’

By |March 29th, 2007|

"MC Rove" The correspondence dinner was missing something this year. That was especially true when it came to Bush's segment. It was obvious that Mr. Bush felt very comfortable because he had his Fox buddies close, with Fox anchor Brian Wilson sitting next to him. It was a much different scene from last year, obviously. [...]

Saudis Walk Away from Junior

By |March 28th, 2007|

The Saudi King will not be coming to dinner. Oh, and neither will Jordan's King Abdullah. However, it's the former that reveals a tremendously dangerous sign in the ever unraveling foreign policy disaster of Mr. Bush's presidency. President Bush enjoys hosting formal state dinners about as much as having a root canal. Or proposing tax [...]
