Tell me it aint so, Joe!

We all knew it was just a matter of time, well the time has come. Two weeks before the election and the green eyed monster that lives within the weeds of Biden's hair plugs, has reared its ugly head. Joe Biden is like an...

Palin Interview Illustrates She Doesn't Have a Clue

(12) Comments | Posted September 12, 2008 | 1:37 PM

Palin wants a cracker. Parroting pat lines in inappropriate places, clueless on the Bush Doctrine, repeating "We must not second guess Israel" for the benefit of Florida, instead of answering what the U.S.'s obligation to Israel is, looking like she wandered in the wrong room with a tray of pigs...

Remember when Katie Couric was the talk of the town? Remember how she was touted for breaking the glass ceiling? Remember when she was America's sweetheart? Remember how the women's groups rallied behind her move to become CBS'...

Triumph Of The Shrill

(0) Comments | Posted September 6, 2008 | 12:52 AM

A sea of homogeneous faces reacting in unison. A nationalistic symbol hypnotically waves before a hungry crowd. They eagerly await the arrival of their anointed leader. She's one of them. She sounds like them or someone they know. She has problems like they do. She speaks in terms they understand,...

Unwed pregnant teens, redneck baby daddys, shot gun weddings -- are these the corner stones of GOP family values? In case you didn't hear, John McCain's baked Alaskan has a pop tart. Yes, Sarah Palin's 17-year-old daughter Bristol is unwed and five-months pregnant, by...

GIDGET AND KAHUNA

It's one thing to cast Britney Spears on a tired sit-com, on a network whose devoted viewers are Depends consumers, but this McCain stunt casting is ridiculous! Didn't McCain say country first? Does anyone really believe that John McCain...

Who And What Are Black Conservatives?

(0) Comments | Posted June 14, 2008 | 5:42 PM

Black conservatives, what does that really mean? Blacks with values and morals, who get married and attend churches, with non-Rev. Wright like pastors v. Blacks who are shiftless and lazy welfare recipients who sit on their obese butts watching Springer and Judge Judy...Mmmm

Note that Michael Steele, is a frequent...

Why Is Barack Obama Emailing Scarlett Johansson

(4) Comments | Posted June 12, 2008 | 4:55 PM

Perhaps it's true, power makes men stupid. Why in the world is Barack Obama emailing Scarlett Johansson? In May, Michelle Obama declared in a speech in NC, "I want a President... with some sense." Well... I'm not saying that something untoward was in those emails, but even the hint of...

After much elbowing from her colleagues and chastisement from the blogosphere, Senator Clinton finally did on Saturday afternoon, what she should have done Tuesday night. After six minutes and some seconds, she joined the rest of the world in congratulating Senator Obama, on clinching the Democratic nomination for President. It...

My Petition: Don't Let Clinton Hijack the VP Slot

(11) Comments | Posted June 4, 2008 | 3:31 AM

On one of the most historic nights in American history, did Senator Clinton and her merry bandits offer grace, humility and congratulations? No. They were as "gangsta" as ever. When Senator Clinton had an opportunity to demonstrate uncharacteristic graciousness and acknowledge that Senator Obama is the democratic nominee for...

Obama Presents Broom to the Wizards Tonight

(0) Comments | Posted June 3, 2008 | 6:02 PM

After traveling down the sinuous, and often bumpy, primary road, the boy from Kansas can now return to the great wizards (superdelegates) and confidently lay the broom of his nemesis before them.

His path was not of yellow brick, and he didn't encounter any lions, tigers or bears; however, he...

A "Hard Working White American" Speaks

David McCotter is a registered Republican-- a self-described "red neck with a shaved head" who owns a plumbing business in Durham, N.C. McCotter is one of the actual humans in what Hillary Clinton and many campaign pundits and pollsters have been referring to as a key "demographic" that has come...

DURHAM ARMORY, NC-- Michelle Obama was scheduled to appear here on Friday last week, at 12:30 pm. I drove two-and-a-half hours from Charlotte to see her. She arrived more than two hours late. They said there were some "weather" issues in Chicago, which delayed her flight. It was a small...

The Chickens Have Come Home To Roost: Primary Coverage Drinking Games

Has anyone else noticed how all these "pundits," first word to scratch after the elections, use the same words and phrases, to describe the "horse race," between Obama and Clinton? It doesn't matter which "dog you have in the fight," we've all seen these chattering, and in Chris Matthews' case,...

HuffPoster John Ridley Among Those Called Out By Writer's Guild

(43) Comments | Posted April 18, 2008 | 7:15 PM

I just received this email, and it's clear the WGA has thrown down the gauntlet. They are definitely playing old school hardball. They're circulating a list of scab writers who crossed the 100-day strike picket line; that is, writers who decided they would cash in while their fellow scribes marched...
