OK, I admit I don’t have an Iphone. I gather some of you with them were having problems with it and this blog, though, (Totally unreadable, I hear)  and of course I want to help. I’ve added some code to clean up the Iphone display somewhat. Can one of you check it out and let […]

Jake Tapper has the tale of two takes, ABC News:  “Today, John McCain put the former mayor of a town of 9,000 with zero foreign policy experience a heartbeat away from the presidency,” said Obama spox Bill Burton. “Gov.

I’m going to take the unusual step of sending the news release out untouched from The Source, since with all the political goings on, there’s no way you’re going to hear much of it otherwise. You certainly won’t see it in the New York Times, or the paper serving Johnstown PA…. Get the hint?  (BBCT: […]

Bruce McQuain at Q&O: Oliver Willis asks on Twitter: “How many qualified and tested Republican women did McCain pass over for Sarah Palin? “ About as many as the Democrats passed over to pick Barack Obama, Oliver.  Why? LOL… sometimes these things write themselves, don’t they Bruce? It’s true, though; Palin has more executive experience […]

Holiday weekend, so this will be a short one… essentially a nod to the Ramble Tradition. As to the holiday itself, let me say this clearly: Labor unions have outlived their usefulness, and have evolved to the point where they are now not the solution. Rather, they are the problem. Why on earth do we […]

I’ve cleaned up the front page a bit, as well as the footers on individual posts. The object is to lighten the load a bit on the Database server, and get the page looking a bit cleaner. Individual posts still contain the “Related Post” fields  and other moderately useful stuff. Problems?  Feedback’s the place.

The official Democrat Party Veep Hit list:  Bobby Jindal Mitt Romney John Thune Tom Ridge Tim Pawlenty Carly Fiorina Charlie Crist Fred Smith Eric Cantor Blind-sided baby! Sarah Palin gives the McCain-Palin campaign some leverage to attack Obama a several fronts.    Obama supports infanticide.   Palin is pro-life in both word and deed.   BO talks about […]

I said a short while ago, I wasn’t buying Palin as the VP choice until it came out officially. Apparently, it just did. Fox News Channel: DAYTON, Ohio — A senior campaign official in the John McCain campaign confirmed to FOX News on Friday that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee will name Alaska Gov. Sarah […]

The latest chatter I’m hearing is on Palin. Sister Toldjah seems to have this stuff down, though; Instead of breathlessly reporting on every news report that comes out, I’m gonna wait until it’s actually confirmed before I blog about it Yeah, that seems the best way.  No sense chasing shadows on this stuff.

Yes, I saw the speech last night. Let me be brief, because frankly, his dog and pony show deserves no more effort than that. Obama, in the end, did and said nothing new. His speech was grandiose, certainly, but lacked specifics, except for a number of specific untruths, and illogical statements, which Surber does a […]
