That’s So John Roberts!

Barack and Michelle Obama, John Roberts

Just when a friend of mine got ready to coin the phrase, “that is so Sarah Palin,” along comes a RepubliCANT who cannot memorize the Presidential oath of office (a job that has only been done 43 times before). When preparation and memory fail, “that’s soooooooooooooooooooooo John Roberts!” Barry has only been in office for […]

What Obama Owes Bush — That’s Right

the worst president in history

by Robert Illes – Here’s the thing about racism. If you’re a drowning Klansman, and someone offers you their hand in order to save your life, you don’t — at least I don’t think you do — you don’t stop to consider what color the hand is. You grab hold of it, even if it’s […]

Did John McCain Lose Arizona?

While Maricopa County (Phoenix) Judge Edward O. Burke agreed with the state’s Libertarian Party that county elections director, Karen Osborne, did not follow election law, ensure ballot integrity and an unbroken custody chain, he ruled against them saying, “in a county the size of Maricopa, perfect compliance with the statutory electoral scheme, while desirable, is […]

Why the Sarah Palin Gamble Didn’t Pay Off

by Joel K. Goldstein – John McCain probably lost whatever chance he had to become president on August 28, the day he invited Sarah Palin to be his running mate. In making that decision, McCain ignored a lesson of recent vice-presidential selection: presidential candidates run a huge risk if they  choose a running mate who […]

The Obama Tide

by Carl Matthes – The tide didn’t seem very strong when reports from the first closed polls were broadcast in Los Angeles from back East, late Tuesday afternoon, November 4. True, the previous night, there was the slightest of ripples when results from tiny New Hampshire towns, which historically vote Republican, gave Obama a winning […]

The Era of Obama and Us

With the election of Obama as president, comes the dawning of a new era of our making. On Election Day, my 7-year-old daughter took care to cross out the names of the “already voted” on our list and left doorhangers at each empty house as we walked door-to-door turning out the vote. When I was […]

Voters Are Rejecting Republican Ideology, Not Just Bush and McCain

With pundits finally predicting an Obama victory, some are already spinning the election as a referendum on President Bush and on John McCain’s weak campaign. This frame—which claims Bush was an “anchor” around John McCain’s neck from the outset—spins this election as a rejection of specific politicians, not the Republican Party. But John McCain publicly […]

The POW Has No Clothes

When John Kerry ran for President in 2004, and touted his stellar military service as a swift boat commander during the Vietnam War, the Republicans were falling over themselves, trying to diminish it. By the time the “Swift Boat Veterans” were through, Kerry had shot himself to get a Purple Heart, and in fact got […]

What’s Going on With Sarah Palin’s Medical Records?

All of the candidates have released medical information to the American people stating they are fit to serve, that is, all except Sarah Palin. There has been a flurry of questions buzzing around the blogosphere and elsewhere regarding the lack of medical records for Palin, especially since her appearance on NBC News almost two weeks […]

McCain Hopes for A Win, Obama Aims for a Mandate

Senator John McCain’s campaign should be experiencing a surge in this final week of the campaign, a narrowing of the gap between him and his opponent Senator Barack Obama. In almost every campaign since 1988, except for when Senator Bob Dole lost to President Bill Clinton in 1996, the eventual losers experienced a last minute […]

The Lesser Schlep

I want a girl like Sarah Silverman. She’s as pretty as Sarah Palin, much funnier, a lot smarter and she’s a nice . . . girl. Plus, she’s got what it takes to come before the nation and shamelessly call out the lot of Jews who are closet racists. Her video titled The Great Schlep […]

If You’re Thinking of Voting for Third Party and Help Elect McCain and Palin, Here’s Who You Empower

To underscore that voting third party or not voting at all will help elect McCain and Palin, and thereby re-empower the self-righteous ideologues who berated progressives, liberals, democrats, greens, libertarians, etc., for the past 8 years while their leaders were on board, I’ve asked my fantastic vlogger collaborator, Sharona L. Smith (VoiceOfAmericans2008), to compile a […]
