Running Headlong Over a Cliff

August 31, 2008

So the latest Democrat tactic is to attack Sarah Palin’s experience in office.  We’ll I’ve kind of touched on that in a previous post, Why Conservatives Claim “Media Bias”, Example #2.  To be honest, the swiftness of the attack, and the coordination even took me a little by surprise.  I figured it would take a day or so before they started hammering away at a relative unknown the national stage.

Then again, attacking people, using outright lies, and distortion is what Democrats and liberals do best.  So I guess I shouldn’t have been so taken off-guard.

However, going after Sarah Palin’s experience, and the whole “a heartbeat away from the presidency” crap is picking the wrong frickin’ scab in my humble opinion.  In fact, they might be shooting themselves in the foot if they continue this up to the Presidential Debates.

Why Conservatives Claim “Media Bias”, Example #2

August 29, 2008

McCain picks his vice-presidential candidate: Sarah Palin.  And it takes no more than a few hours for the attacks to begin.

Relatively unknown, Sarah Palin is the governor of Alaska who, by all accounts, is not only a government reformer, but a all-out conservative on all fronts.  So, what do I read on the Internet today?

Analysis: Palin’s age, inexperience rival Obama’s

Where There’s Smoke, There’s Fire

August 28, 2008

I know a few friends who are Democrats; not many, but a few.  Early on in the Democrat primary, when stuff about Father Phlager and Reverend Wright came out, and when Michelle Obama declared that this was the first time in her adult life that she was proud of her country, I started seeing signs of something amiss on the Barak Obama front.  I openly told my Democrat friends that Barak Hussein Obama isn’t the Democratic Party’s strongest candidate – Hillary Clinton was.  One thing after another started popping up in Barak Obama’s background, especially his ties to far-left radical types. 

From looking at the guy, Obama seems thoughtful, intelligent, and reasoned.  He doesn’t use the same clichéd comments that most leftist radical types use.  But boy, does the guy seem surrounded by them.

Then along comes Bill Ayers, infamous Weatherman bomber.

Biden “Gravitas”

August 28, 2008

So, I watched parts of Joe Biden’s acceptance speech.  I found at least two instances where he has contradicted himself from previous statements, some made only a year back.

If you want me to offer my assessment of Biden’s contribution to Barak Hussien Obama’s candidacy: he’s a zit waiting to be popped.  It’s pretty obvious to me that he’s swallowing the Obama policy on things, which is just opening him up for attacks from the McCain camp.

Why Conservatives Claim “Media Bias”, Example #1

August 27, 2008

A few weeks ago, perusing Internet news, you might have seen an article stating,”Pew Survey: Viewers of Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert Score High on News Knowledge“.  The author of the article is a guy by the name of Greg Mitchell.  In the “report”, Greg goes on to claim that people who watch shows like The Daily Show and The Colbert Report, “are more knowledgeable about current events (as judged by three test questions) than watchers of ‘real’ cable news shows hosted by Lou Dobbs, Bill O’Reilly and Larry King, among others — as well as average consumers of NBC, ABC, Fox News, CNN, C-SPAN and daily newspapers.”

Wow!  What a revelation!  You mean two different comedy shows provide more information than all those networks?

This is the part where I back up the truck, just a tad.  There are a few key things missing from the article I cited.

Is Biden Some Sort of Joke?

Is Biden Some Sort of Joke?

Given my political leanings, you’ve probably got a good idea that Barak Hussein Obama isn’t real high on my list of who I want to be President of the United States.  In fact, he’s right down there with the candidate from the Communist Worker’s Party.  I’ll probably hold my nose and vote for John McCain, who is only marginally better, but not by much.  So who Barak Hussein Obama picks as his running mate is of very little consequence to me.  Barak is the headliner in that attraction.  I don’t care about the warm-up act.

But…uh…Joe Biden?  Seriously?
