The far right, as evidences by the ever shrill and panicky MarK Levin, is learning a very tough lesson. As I pointed out in an earlier post the hyper-partisans left and right have been competing to see who can insult and repulse the moderate middle the most (for daring not be ideologues and instead supporting […]

Update On Pakistan Missile Strike

Well it appears someone got a high level al-Qaeda leader in Pakistan, though I was hoping for someone nearer to the top (but was not expecting it): A senior al-Qaeda leader in Afghanistan, Abu Laith al-Libi, has been killed, senior Western counter-terrorism officials say. News of Libi’s death first emerged on a website used by […]

GOP Reconciliation Ain’t Happening

I was listening to Laura Ingrahm on the way in and she is trying to adjust to the McCain nomination, but it just ain’t happening. She wanted to know how to build a bridge between the hyper-conservatives and the moderate conservatives. It is an easy question to answer – try some respect. She was trying, […]

What Happens When Political Actions Don’t Impress, They Embarrass?

Initial Talk Radio Reactions To McCain’s FL Win

Published by under All General Discussions

Chris Corr (sp?) seems to have figured it all out this morning. He noted that McCain is the probable GOP nominee after his win in FL and really questioned those who would sit out and let Hillary become president. He also took Rush and Hannity to task for their demeaning comments about independents and those […]

GOP Purity Wars Must End – Or Else Welcome Dem President

The purity warriors (sometimes I like to jab them as the Mary Poppins conservatives who are practically perfect in every way) have a decision to make today and into the future. Do they want a seat at the table of power or are they going to leave the conservative coalition? They have been ranting and […]
