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 […]

Observation by James Taranto, Wall Street Journal: Barack Obama and Joe Biden are both lawyers. Neither John McCain nor Sarah Palin is a lawyer.

Yeah, posting’s been light, today. Been rather busy at work. Another Honorable Mention at OTB’s caption contest Sister says Bob Dole unloaded on Scott McClellan, excoriating the former White House spokesman as a “miserable creature” who greedily betrayed his former patron for a fast buck… thus showing Sis is on top of things… and so […]

John Hawkins points out MSNBC‘s David Shuster isn’t alone.

I see Mike Allen at The Politico is reporting the existence of a letter from Bob Dole to Rush Limbaugh, scolding the latter over his insistence on ‘strafing’, as Allen puts it, of John McCain. And you know, absent Mr. Dole’s abysmal 1996 and 1998 campaigns, his words might actually carry some weight.  In light […]

Stephen Green, Vodka Pundit, asks a simple question: Dear Iowa Republicans, I’ll put this in language even your tiny little Iowa brains can understand: What the f*** is wrong with you people? The news coming out of Des Moines (literally, French for “tell me about the rabbits, George”) tonight is distressing in the extreme. 32 […]
