Oh, Lord. Just what Bush (and maybe more than a few Deaniacs?) is praying for. Ralph Nader will announce Sunday whether he will make another run for the White House, but all signs indicate the consumer advocate plans to jump into the race as an independent. Read about it here.
Bush’s campaign Slogan: "Steady Leadership in a Time of Change" Rearranging the letters of gives us (among many others): Megadeath and hyperfine socialites.Sleepyhead or significant meathead.Speedily, nation’s magic featherhead.I’m a hypertense, death-dealing fiasco.I am a disheartened pig-face.

Do they not GET it? The White House just released some Bush/National Guard records. As far as I can tell from the news reports, the documents are: (1) Point summaries — which show that was given credit for certain training periods. These are not new documents. Heck, I’VE even seen them. They only show that he was given credit . … Read More
I’m a little pressed for time today, so I won’t indulge in much analysis and background. I’m sure many are familiar with the story anyway. So instead, I’ll just link to an article, and pose a couple of questions: (1) Has Bush’s military record been adequately and fully explained? and the biggie . . . (2) Is it relevant, and … Read More
The Lieberman campaign has been rightfully mocked at its attempt to make "Joe-mentum" a political catch phrase. But that hasn’t stopped them from implementing Plan B: Behold the "Mo-Joe"! Sigh. Some people just try too hard.
Daily Kos is reporting the latest Zogby poll numbers. Since Zogby was the poll that predicted a Kerry win in Iowa, these numbers may be worth looking at. Since Dean is running a distant third or fourth in Arizona, Missouri, Oklahoma and South Carolina, and given his financial problems, I predict he will be yesterday’s news on . . . … Read More
Okay. She’s a gossip columnist, and not a very good/reliable one. Yet, the "buzz" is out. A well-placed source says that the president will “most likely” drop Dick Cheney from his re-election ticket and his first choice for a replacement is former New York City mayor Rudy Giuliani. Read about it here. There’s also talk of Bush-McCain ticket. This could … Read More
The following is a partial transcript of Joe Lieberman’s congratulatory telephone call to Carolina Panthers head coach John Fox. LIEBERMAN: Coach Fox? Joe Lieberman here – was that a great game or what? You bet it was! COACH FOX: Uh, thanks Joe, but I really don’t think… LIEBERMAN: Well Coach, based on what I saw tonight, I’d say you just … Read More
I was prepared to predict Kerry as the nominee, but poll numbers from the February 3 states give me pause. Naturally, Edwards is on top in South Carolina. But it’s these OTHER states that surprise me. For example, Kerry and Clark are in a statistical dead heat in Arizona. And Clark and Edwards both beat out Kerry by a significant … Read More
For what it’s worth . . . I was raised in New Hampshire. My mother still lives there, and she’s just as much a political hound as I am. By way of background — she’s a registered independant, but always votes Republican (she’s a Republican of the McCain stripe, rather than the Bush stripe). She’s just emailed me her take … Read More
After seeing Dean poke fun at himself on Letterman’s Top Ten list last night, I was willing to give Dean a pass for his histrionics Monday night, and suggest that the jokes about him are becoming a little unfair. But then I read this piece by MSNBC’s Howard Fineman, which begins: Like the Challenger explosion, the faltering of Howard Dean’s … Read More
Thought everyone might enjoy hearing the Howard Dean Iowa speech (Dance Mix version).
