The Subliminal Slam-Dunk

I was going to start out by calling the second Presidential Candidates’ Debate between Barack Obama and John McCain a “running out the clock” affair for Obama. Basically a draw – no big wins or losses, with an edge to Obama because he didn’t give up any ground and McCain didn’t gain any.

What I Learned at the Sarah Palin Rally Before They Threw Me Out!

On Saturday, I went to Carson, California, to attend a rally for Republican Vice Presidential candidate, Sarah Palin. For those who aren’t familiar with the city of Carson, it’s approximately 19 miles south of downtown Los Angeles. In the 2004 Presidential election, Carson, which had a population of just under 90,000, donated three times as […]

Barack Obama: As American as Apple Pie

Barack Obama is a formidable candidate for President. And he’s our candidate: a Democrat, a liberal, and a progressive; intelligent and mature with a Chicago-style political savvy.

Here Come The Smears

My deep, sincere apologies to The Beatles for turning the title of their wonderfully hopeful song Here Comes The Sun on its head, especially to use it in describing the only tactics left to save the sinking Republican ship SS McCain with Cap’n Palin on the bridge.

300-Plus Electoral Votes is Possible for Obama

My European Union media colleagues have a hard time understanding that daily national tracking polls mean little. On November 4th, voters will enter and cast ballots in 50 statewide winner-takes-all contests. There are 538 electoral votes up for grabs, this is how the race is decided and the first person to 270 votes wins. California […]

30 Days To Go …

Alright, so it’s been an unpredictable election year. When the primaries began, Hillary Clinton was the heavy favorite and John McCain was all but dead in the water with Fred Thompson’s entry in the race being eagerly awaited by conservative and moderate Republicans alike. And something may yet happen – the oft-cited, much worried about, […]

McCain’s Talking Deer Flatlines, Plans Coup?

Could Sarah Palin really be a Walt Disney creation? At some point the comparisons between her and perky Mouseketeer Annette are hard to push out of consciousness. Annette learned her lines and recited them with real “Gosh, Shucks” authenticity in such a way that she became an old man’s and America ’s sweetheart (not to […]

Sarah Palin Lives To Gaffe Another Day

As usual, post-debate bloviating wandered aimlessly through the night with assessments ranging from “she did better than we thought she would,” which is what parents say when their kid doesn’t strike out at a Little League game, to the thoroughly puzzling “America must be surprised.”

Advantage Biden

I had help with this one. I watched Joe Biden and Sarah Palin square off, on CNN, specifically for that network’s audience meters. In this case, it was a group of undecided voters in Ohio, both men and women. What was revealing to me was how the audience reaction dovetailed with my own.

Is Palin the GOP Drag Queen?

Since McCain chose the Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin, as his vice-presidential pick, there has been bantering and bickering from the distaff side of our American electorate. The catfight from female electorates of both political parties is whether or not Palin’s candidacy is good for women, and whether or not her abilities honorably represent the […]

Funeral for “McCain-Palin Socialism”

Reagan’s America is dead. If not dead, it lies fallen on a US economy near ruin. The recent collapse of several financial giants and the extreme concentration of wealth in a few hands have reached levels unmatched since the 1930s Great Depression Era. Former Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan, who witnessed firsthand the Great Depression, […]

The First Presidential Debate: Tie Goes to the Runner

by Anthony Asadullah Samad — Watching the first presidential debate involving the first African American major party nominee was historic. But the aftermath was less than euphoric. By all accounts, Barack Obama won the debate. He was more “presidential,” whatever that means.
