The use of the death of Ted Kennedy in support of the Democrats and their socialist-style takeover of our healthcare system has been widely noted and decried. It’s crass, at least. Cynical, as well. But it shows us just how desperate the Democrats are to push this monster through and onto the financial shoulders of […]

I think the media so far has been the biggest loser in this race. And they continue to have growing credibility problems Mark Penn, via Jonan Goldberg, National Review..

I remarked a while ago: Clinton is now looking for a scapegoat, and Penn seems a likely enough target. Penn’s job, after all, was putting lipstick on a pig…. Hillary Clinton is a product that is about as popular as raw sewage. Granted that Penn didn’t help that image, but what could? Of course, that […]

Yes, Art… I have seen the book as well. I have to tell you and honesty I found a depressing read. The reasons are rather simple; your first problem is that it does in fact make sense. I’m that basis alone it would never fly. Getting the idea? Of course, the second one is of […]

Yeah, full moon, tonight. And no, I don’t mean the guy with his butt hanging out the window of the Yugo to your left.  It’s been a weird day, already. Your first clue, Billy, should have been when the two responsible for the bill are two of the more questionable critters Congress has ever produced. […]

I blogged the other day that liberals don’t just hate their enemies, they hate anybody, and everybody, who they see standing between them and their power.    Now Paul Begela seemingly sets out to prove my point.  Sam Stein, Puffington Post, reports that “Forehead” Begala thinks that not fired and maybe not even demoted, Mrs. Clinton campaign advisor […]

“If there is a mystery at the heart of Barack Obama’s “Dreams From My Father”, one thing is not left a mystery, the fact that Barack Obama organized his life on the ideals given to him by his Kenyan father. Obama tells us, ‘All of my life, I carried a single image of my father, […]

The wires are humming just now with the news that Mark Penn, Head cook and bottle washer for the Clinton campaign, has quit. One such story comes form the Washington Post: ALBUQUERQUE, April 6 — Mark J. Penn quit Sunday as Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton’s chief strategist, the second shake-up in her campaign’s top ranks […]

By way of James Joyner, I note Teagan Goddard, the morning: Taegan Goddard argues that Hillary Clinton’s release of seven years of tax returns just after four yesterday was smooth. Tactically, it’s a perfect time to release them?—?especially if there’s any controversial news in the documents. 1. News coverage will continue to focus on the […]

The NY Observer, yesterday: The argument that the constant carping about Hillary Clinton’s campaign has been a function of an Obama-friendly, process-obsessed media is well and good. But how, then, to explain the deeply held dissatisfaction of an old Clinton loyalist like Leon Panetta? In an interview with The Observer, Mr. Panetta compared Mrs. Clinton’s […]

Mrs. Clinton’s last stand, via Byron York, National Review: On a conference call, top strategist Mark Penn just told reporters that in the next two weeks Hillary Clinton will go after Barack Obama on the issue of who is better qualified to be commander-in-chief – and Penn suggested that Clinton would be a better commander of […]

Is Mrs. Clinton’s campaign merely spinning, or spinning our out control.   Listen to Mrs. Clinton’s  pollster Mark Penn, video.   Penn’s attempted attack on Barack Obama, does not demonstrate Obama’s weaknesses, so much as it highlights Mrs. Clinton’s.   Mrs. Clinton’s campaign is attacking Obama for a alleged lack of expericence, when Mrs. Clinton has virtually none herself.   […]

Two items from the Washington Post: Central to the new Clinton push will be the argument that only she can beat the eventual Republican nominee, a claim Obama is also seeking to make to voters here. Advisers said her message will be: “You can’t have change if you don’t win.” Her rivals, meanwhile, are moving […]

Even if we assume that the security firm Blackwater doesn’t belong in Iraq, (I know, I know, but just go with me for a moment…) there would appear to be some problems with how things are connected in terms of Blackwater, and those complaining publicly about their operations in Iraq.  You may remember, that one […]
