Why did Benghazi happen? It’s a question the news media and the left keeps asking,  along with a number of Americans who decided back in ’08, along with that magnificent mental midget John McCain, that we had nothing to fear from an Obama Presidency.   And the American people are starting to wake up to […]

According to the latest Gallup poll,This conservatives are the largest ideological group in the country. Of course you’ll never hear this from the main street press. Trouble is you won’t hear it from the GOP much either. Whereas the GOP seems intent on chasing the supposed center, it turns out that the center isn’t even […]

Oneanta, NY-  I’m set to deliver at Latham, NY in the morning. Sorry for the long time between posting a Ramble, but the internet connectivity is an issue again. It’s frustrating because I don’t understand WHY.  (shrug) Only one topic, today…. because frankly, it’s all I’ve had time to follow:   Iowa:Thanks to Art Smith […]

Carlisle, PA–After three highly unusual weeks of running to the west it appears as though I will be spending the remainder of this year running east.  That’s a bit more normal for this truck line.  Frankly, we’re experiencing a bit of a pre Christmas slowdown. I’m not worried.  I’ve seen this before.  From here, I […]

I have for a long time found Ann Coulter fascinating. Occasionally wrong, mostly correct.  I have several of her books on my shelves here.  I even carry one in the truck that I haven’t finished reading.  That said, it fascinates me that  Coulter who had nothing but derision for John McCain, thinks that Mitt Romney […]

With all due respect, does anyone care who John McCain endorses? William A. Jacobson, Legal Insurrection As you may deduce from my quote editing, I only deem the Professor half right, this time.     Frankly  for  the record, this is the only McCain in the arena, of which I give a damn.

Westbury, Long Island, NY– A frequent stop for me… dropping off some drinks to the thirsty club shoppers. Nearly 80 here… you’d not know it was fall. Today, I’m going to do a one subject Ramble.   Some observations on the GOP races and faces: Romney:Certainly the favorite of the GOP establishment. That alone, given […]

Making Dumbo and the ‘rats pay the price for throwing Granny under the bus, from Mark Tapscott,Washington Examiner: So when Obama threatens not to pay Social Security checks on time, the proper response of congressional Republicans should be to pass emergency legislation directing the Secretary of the Treasury to pay interest on the national debt, […]

I’d like to offer up a re-post of mine from a tenth of 2009. I post this with an eye toward the argument over the debt ceiling limit. I submit to the reader that had we not been holding the Republicans feet to the fire we wouldn’t have gotten this close to real spending cuts. […]

Jon Huntsman, stalking horse, Jennifer Rubin explains why the newly launched Jon Huntsman campaign so  hyped by the media, and so dead in the water, from Washington Post: From the mainstream media’s standpoint, he is the McCain 1980. He’s a “good Republican” — not too conservative, not too loyal to his party and infatuated (at […]

The John McCain card is the surest way for a conservative to get favorably cited by the LSM.  That is  to bash a fellow conservative.  Matt Labash, of the Weekly Standard, ties to get his fifteen minutes of fame, from Johnathan Martin and John F. Harris,  Politico: “The appeal of conservatism is supposed to be […]

Florence, NJ– Eric is a hurting unit, today. I fell off the truck day before yesterday, while doing a roadside repair, and I’m felling all of it, the day after. Other than that, I’m actually doing fairly well, I think.  Like any new job, there are days when I think I’ve got a handle on […]

Why the War on Barbour? From Alex Pareene, Slate: Corpulent unreconstructed good ol’ boy Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour apparently has a “state plane” that he uses to fly to football games with corporate executives, Politco reports today.

Last night was a drubbing of a sitting president like we have not seen since 1932. At this writing, we’re at around 60 seats worth of swing away from the Democrats, and by the end of this, possibly 70 seats. Look, let’s be honest…. Even assuming Obama and the minions of the left had a […]

A requiem for a bitch *, the demise of Mrs. Pelosi’s career in national politics, by Hugh Hewitt, Washington Examiner: The epic loss on Tuesday will launch a thousand op-eds and who knows how many dissertations.
