Roger Clemens compiled a life time record of 354 wins to 184 losses.  You don’t win that many ballgames without being competitive.  Well Clemens may be retired, but he is still competitive.  Clemens have filed a defamation lawsuit against his accuser Brian McNamee, and by extension George Mitchell.  Lester Munson, ESPN: The lawsuit also accuses […]

After many weeks on hold, I’m re-starting the Nightly Ramble. Reasons are many but the bottom line is that there are a lot of subjects I want to touch on but don’t want to write it all out… I’d rather just touch on the points and let you do some research. The Ramble is a […]

Mrs. Clinton, as quoted by Ben Smith, Politico: “It’s not easy.” Did B.J. ever promise you it would be easy? Funny Mrs. Clinton, just a mere week ago, you tried to sell Iowa a bill of goods promising all these easy sounding changes all as of “Day One:” Now this what a President should sound […]

I’m not sure what to make of this: RAWALPINDI, Pakistan (CNN) — Former Pakistani Prime Minister Benazir Bhutto’s assassination was her own fault, the country’s president, Pervez Musharraf, said in an interview that aired Sunday on U.S. television. “For standing up outside the car, I think it was she to blame alone — nobody else.

Byran Preston, Hot Air, posts a most interesting video. Point of interest one, Morris assets the Clinton’s, B.J. and Mrs. use race to win elections, but somehow neither is racist.  Sure.  Your check is in the mail. Point two, after Morris talks of B.J.’s Sister Souljah moment, Alan Colmes expressed the opinion that B.J.’s attack […]

I asked earlier this morning, when we might see some of the expectation lowering dance being done by Hillary Clinton. The answer to that question came somewhat faster than I expected, if the rumor mill is any guide… and with her, it can never be discounted out of hand. Blue Crab Blvd says: Drudge has […]

John Hawkins, Right Wing News, has his list of the most annoying liberals of the year, and Mrs. Pelosi is only number four.    John’s list is studded wth quotes and videos, including my favorite Fred video. Hat Tip:  Memeorandum.

You’ll forgive me, but I find it hard to take seriously, calls for sanity from someone flying the flag of John Edwards…. or just about any Democrat these days, for that matter.

Here is a reminder of why Bob Shrum is a highly paid political advisor, from the New York Daily-News: The Clinton industry, encrusted with the beneficiaries and acolytes of the first and probably only Clinton presidency, has turned Hillary into a product whose sell-by date has passed. In a year of change, she has been […]

I’m going to pass along some extended quotes that caught my eye over the weekend. During the thousand years that included the careers of the Frankish soldier and the Polish king, the Christians of Asia and Africa proved unable to wage successful war with the Moslem conquerors; and in consequence Christianity practically vanished from the […]

The Politico is saying that Mitt Romney is “Dialing down expecations…. hard”. Mitt Romney, a dominant favorite in New Hampshire just weeks ago, said Sunday that a “close second” to Arizona Sen. John McCain would be a significant feat on Tuesday. The almost frantic downsizing of expectations for the former Massachusetts governor came as the […]

Yeah, that’s what I said.  Weird collection. It’s from an outfit called “World Wide Fred” No, I’m not getting anything for the mention; it just struck me as interesting.  BBCT: SimpleBits. I gather they’re all made from recycled truck tires…

I strongly disagree with the Fox All-Star panel.  “They all” did not do well tonight.  Huckabee demonstrated why he should not be the GOP nominee.  He lost.  He did badly.  He was rambling at times.  He was dissembling at times.  There, I said it.  Good night. Mark R. Levin, National Review.

In kicking around the blogs today, particularly the leftie blogs, I’m seeing a word that is often used and usually misunderstood, or at least ill-defined in context. The word is “Change”.  There seems to be an almost universal cry for it, that seems to run independent of party lines.  Amongst those who truly do not […]
