Where you are held accountable for your convictions and record

McCain-Palin now within 4 points (after trailing by 9 points last week).

The Obama campaign held a “20 point lead in terms of enthusiasm” when the survey was taken, but I am going out on a ledge to predict that is about to change.

“Who is the real Barack Obama?” indeed. He’s the guy who peaked on October 1 on a message spun of gossamer threads.

Republicans have Watergate, the Democrats have Kansasgate. The theft of specific items with import to the campaign can only be compared to the Watergate break-in. How far up the chain does this go?

Sarah Palin is Iron Man on the stump:

She led the 2008 Republican offensive before the 2008 Republican offensive was cool. We need to clone this woman.


Last Monday when Pelosi got in the well of the house and suffered a bout of political Tourettes Syndrome it may have killed the Bailout Bill that day.   The stock market had fallen over 350pt up to that point, and fell another 350+ after the bill failed.  This was chalked up as proof that the bill was needed.

The bailout bill, from the time of its inception,  ballooned in size from 3 pages to 450+ pages, as all sorts of sweeteners were added.  Another term for sweetener is pork-barrel spending.  This is the spending that is partly to blame for the mess we are in.  The patient is bleeding, please apply leaches.

Here is the punch line.  After the bill passed and each of us is a another $2300 in debt, the stock market dropped 350 pts.  These are people we want to hand the entire medical industry over to?


The Dow just dropped another 500+pts.  Yup those guys in the guv’mint sure know what they’re doin!  How did Reagan put it …

The most terrifying words in the English language are: I’m from the government and I’m here to help.

Oh, the humanity.

I sincerely hope this story gets out … perhaps via the mainstream media itself? Is it too much to hope for? That Gwen Ifill feels she was disrespected in her journalistic greatness?

Because what little else we know about John Q. Public, we can be certain that John Q. will wholeheartedly relish the notion that Sarah Barracuda made the PBS “journalist” feel put out.

Testify, Gwen, shout it from the rooftops.

Thanks, Sarah.

“Some of his comments that he has made about the war that I think may — in my world– disqualifies someone from consideration as the next commander in chief.”

Your turn to speak up, how about on this topic, John.

I don’t agree with all the choices, and neither does the Rifleman, but it’s a cool slide show.
