It's Christmas and with all the blather about Iraq not being an issue in the 2008 election, I have to say that it should be, a big one. I'll also admit that it's not being talked about much right now, mainly because it's primary season and there isn't one Democrat who doesn't want to end [...]

By |December 21st, 2007|

More Christmas fun with our kittens. Drudge is causing trouble, this time for a Republican who has come alive in the latest polls.

The Matthews-Schultz Clinton Tantrum

By |December 20th, 2007|

Howard Kurtz Calls Press on Negative Clinton Coverage

By |December 19th, 2007|

Read this article. Finally, someone, Howard Kurtz in this case, wakes up and calls the press for their lazy approach to Obama, while Clinton is continually creamed on all fronts.
