Oh… Did you notice Norman Hsu trying to get his old conviction overturned? And why would he do this? Because overturning that conviction will negate a longer jailterm for this more recent crime, involving Hillary Clinton and fund raising. A big jail term for a Clinton fund raiser is something the Clinton camp doesn’t need, […]

Was installing a new screen in my Palm Pilot, tonight. While working, I had a chance to mentally break down each candidate with respect to Iowa. Some notes in no particular Order: Mike Huckabee; Huckabee did about as well as I expected. Iowa is a place where the Evangelical Christian band does pretty well, and […]

Stephen Green, Vodka Pundit, asks a simple question: Dear Iowa Republicans, I’ll put this in language even your tiny little Iowa brains can understand: What the f*** is wrong with you people? The news coming out of Des Moines (literally, French for “tell me about the rabbits, George”) tonight is distressing in the extreme. 32 […]

Fewer people participated in the caucuses than vote in Dakota County, Minnesota, and I’ll bet most people don’t know where Dakota County is. This is a relatively small number of people.”  Karl […]

Bitsblog has a special place, can’t say just where, for Keith Olbermann.   I have found another blog which holds Olberman in like regard: Half of Keith’s audience watches him on Crooks and Liars. He’s got to stay in good with the netroots types, even if it means rooting for the loser. never even say Obama’s […]

Dodd has dropped out. So has Biden. Most didn’t know they were running at all. THe results were so bad for them they apparently decided not to wait the few days to New Hampshire. Hillary Clinton, meanwhile, will be going negative, or so the CW has it. I have my doubts she’ll be able to […]

Mrs Clinton’s dais has one message on it, change, her props, Madeleine Albright, Wesley Clark and B.J. Clinton sends another contradictory message,  Clinton administration redux.  Mrs. Clinton has a choice, neither particularly attractive.   Either she can run on a third term for the Clinton administration, scandal and incompetence, or she run, somehow, as an agent […]
