A Distant Thunder In The Electorate

Back in 2014 I could feel the mood of the country and how it was poised to reject the Democrats and sweep them out of office. I saw evidence of the tsunami coming in voting trends in the primaries and early voting totals (see here for my analysis). It proved to be a historic election […]

Time To Impeach Obama? Not Yet

Governor Sarah Palin came out today to make a great opening argument for Impeachment of President Obama. However, the political repercussions of Impeachment probably would push the decision to Impeach into the next Congress, which will be sworn in January 2015. Palin’s concerns are valid: Because of Obama’s purposeful dereliction of duty an untold number […]

Birther Nonsense Poisons 2012 Election

Boy, if you want to help President Obama win reelection, one of the best ways to do so is to park your brain and go full Birther – ignoring all other critical issues facing this country. The state of Hawaii has responded to Arizona Secretary of State Ken Bennett’s request for proof that President Barack […]

Disgust Across The Land

Like many Americans, I am counting down the days until the next election so that we can finally turn the country around. 2010 was a huge step in the right direction, but it was never going to be enough. In 2008 our weariness with the war on terror made many of us susceptible to the […]

Who Won Birther Debacle?

There are three main groups at play in the Obama-Birther nonsense. So who won and who lost the last news cycle? (3) The Birthers: No doubt the big losers. They are being (rightfully) ridiculed in the media. Like Trig-mongers who attack Sarah Palin, the Birthers missed the memo on how Americans are fed up with […]

You Can’t Manufacture Credibility & Respect

The democrat party, as a whole, is learning a harsh lesson these days. Where they naively thought success was measured by the amount of crap produced, they are now learning that the quality or success of their labors is the greater measure by far. If they could do one thing well they would be on […]

The ‘Transparent’ Administration

When the country heard the word ‘transparent’ coming out of the inexperienced young senator from Illinois during the presidential campaign season of 2008, they rightfully assumed it meant there would be no more back room deals, special interest favors, bribes or kickbacks.  Well, apparently what the audacious and arrogant candidate meant was he would be […]

Conservatives Deserve Serious Leaders

In a follow up to my post on how the fringe right is trying to co-opt the Tea Party movement I want to applaud this piece on Birther nonsense: The “we’re just asking questions” rationale seems to be the explanation du jour for the tiresome and self-destructive continuing “Birther” fixation of some journalists who purport to […]

Palin Dodges Bullet On Obama COLB

As folks know I am a COLB denier. I don’t run with the birthers and spent many hours debunking their insanity. And I have little respect for those who have latched onto this nonsense. The birthers are not as bad as the truthers, but definitely worse than the AGW alarmists (at least there was some […]

Sarah Palin’s Book Doing What It Was Intended

Published by under AJStrata's GUT,Sarah Palin

Got Sarah’s book (actually we got two copies so the political junkies did not have to take turns) and just started reading it. Might comment on it more – probably won’t though. It doesn’t seem to require a lot of over analyzing and fact checking by media and blogger mental midgets. One of the things […]
