Anyone remember John Edwards? I know… not lately. He’s not going to the White House, unless they need an elevator operator.  By my read, he’s playing for some sort of appointment to a post in a Democrat White House. Notice… he’s been playing very light of late with both Obama and Clinton?  You know why. […]

Byran, Hot Air, points out that Mike Huckabee had an interesting point about rebuilding I-95 rather than sending out individual rebate checks: Mike Huckabee makes some sense on the economic stimulus. He says, essentially, if we’re going to borrow $150 billion from China to finance the stimulus package, why not use it to do something useful instead of […]

Yikes! How long did THIS take to set up? Clearly some engineering genius has far too much time on their hands. Rube had nothing on these folks. The WSJ is saying that Obama is just now figuring out that the Clintons will do ANYTHING, and I do mean ANYTHING to win. Somehow, I have my […]

By way of OTB, I see that the Louisiana primary went down about as expected; Ron Paul beat Romney, but both of them lost to Fred Thompson. That a couple of comparatively liberal northeastern pols wouldn’t do well down there among Republicans, doesn’t shock me. Anyone promising to lower the size of government will do […]

I note by way of LGF that Hubble’s getting an overhaul. Jawa Report trying the Podcast thing? It appears so. Michelle points up where Duncan Hunter has endorsed Huckabee.  I dunno as that’s really much of a shock, that Hunter endorses a less than appealing candidate. It’s not like he had a whole bunch of […]

That question is going to be a little strange to answer. Hawkins says : My instinct is that poll is probably a little more representative of how things would work in the real world. Fred Thompson’s supporters would probably break down like so, * A significant group of them go for the most conservative remaining […]

Maybe it is something in the Arkansas water?   Mike Huckabee wants a free pass on the examination of his liberal record.  If you criticize the Huckster’s record, he calls it dirty politics.  Now the other dope from Hope, B.J. Clinton is trying to get a free pass on his chronc lying. Howard Wolfson as quoted […]

Seen in a truck window: How good can any campaign finance reform be, that still lets John McCain in as President? I use Bloglines. Used it for years and consider it part of my daily routine. They’ve got a new Beta up you may want to check out. Chuck Norris is saying (in support of […]

Victor Davis Hanson at The Corner earlier today: It seems that Romney, Thompson, and Huckabee supporters might at least consider that there is a chance that McCain will be nominated and these “I’ll sit it out” conservatives should begin thinking of the consequences of Presidents Hillary and Bill. My guess is that McCain could still […]

Jeff Goldstein, Protien Wisdom: I will not, will not, vote for John McCain. I will not, will not, vote for Mike Huckabee. I will not, will not, vote for Ron Paul – unless he runs for Fuhrer. In which case, he’s got my full support. Hat Tip: Memeorandum. Addendum: (Bit) I’m with Goldstein.  I note […]

Michael Graham, National Review: McCain is a weak candidate by any measure. Only once in his two presidential races has John McCain ever won a majority of the vote, and that was Michigan in 2000. He has yet to crack 40% of the vote this year, and he’s done even worse among self-identified Republicans (as […]

RENO, Nev. —AP- John Edwards and Hillary Rodham Clinton criticized Barack Obama’s praise of the Republican Party and Ronald Reagan – an anathema for many Democrats, particularly union members considered crucial to winning Nevada’s Democratic caucuses Saturday.Obama responded by suggesting Clinton would be a “president whose plans change with the politics of the moment” as […]

Hard to imagine isn’t it, and repulsive to boot.  Say it could never happen.   Well that is what would happen if the idea of the Arkansas moron, a.k..a. Mike Huckabee were to beome law: I personally wish that all of this was outlawed. I think that every candidates should speak for themselves, and that every […]

Mike Huckabee, says: ‘The Lord Truly Gave Me Wisdom” Well give it back, Mike.  You sure aren’t using any of it.   It one thing be given a gift.   It is altogether another, to actually use that gift.   It there is one thing Huck’s campaign message lacks, it is wisdom,  class envy yes, but wisdom no.

Byran, Hot Air, states the obvious: Two primary wins, two seconds. No one else has been as broadly competitive so far. He has the most delegates and the most money in the bank, and he’s back to campaigning in South Carolina for Saturday’s primary. He’s in a statistical tie for second there. With four primary […]
