A civic-minded 8-year old named Brandon Willmanson sent me the following short story, "Guarding The Henhouse", a parable about the current health care situation in America. I was initially inspired by this youngster's initiative, although I must confess that I was not prepared for the ra… Read full post »
Some of you might recall my "28 Attacks in 28 Days" campaign initiative back in October. (To those who are unfamiliar, a helpful summary can be found here.) Basically, I would make up a fresh new attack on Barack Obama every day until the Election. I was heavily criticized for my… Read full post »
The Birther Movement-- or BM, as it's called for short-- has gotten quite a bit of attention lately, as many small groups and individuals proclaim that President Obama has no US birth certificate. Within the BM, there is a smaller subset of people who realize that a birth certificate actually D… Read full post »
UPDATE: My "inbox" is suddenly flooded with outraged Jack-in-the-Box patrons taking issue with my "elitist" metaphor in the above video commentary. If I caused any offense, I offer my utmost apologies, and would like to encourage all interested parties to join the "Jack In The B… Read full post »
Another appearance on Dan Dindrell's radio program, talking about Obama's plans regarding "Indefinite Detention"-- which I am completely in favor of, by the way.
I am not at all uneasy about the idea of keeping people locked up indefinitely after they've already been acquitted of the/… Read full post »
I was a guest on this afternoon's Dan Dindrell show, along with Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-CONN.), both of us speaking out against the idea of any "Public Option" in Health Care Reform. Joe and I weren't "in studio", of course, but we still managed a lively three-way via telephone.…
THE FOLLOWING VIDEO IS NOT AN APOLOGY.
I have to admit that I was disappointed in Bill O'Reilly's interview with Salon's Joan Walsh. I liked it when he yelled at her-- I always feel that Bill is at his best when yelling. He's good at it, it comes naturally to him, and he doesn't seem as uncomfortable as… Read full post »
Last September, David Letterman jokingly proclaimed: "the road to the White House runs right through me."
It seems that quick study Sarah Palin was paying close attention. It is my belief -- nay, it is my hope-- that she unofficially began her 2012 campaign for the presiden… Read full post »
HAPPY TEABAG DAY, EVERYBODY!!
I hope that all of you are either attending a Teabagging Party or curled up at home watching the full coverage on Fox News. It's a truly remarkable moment in our nation's history.
But while today is all about the Teabagging, I think it's important that… Read full post »
It's rare that I dip back into the archives, but the Gay Marriage issue is heating up in all sorts of unfortunate ways, and I felt it was worth re-stating my firm opposition to the prevailing trend towards legitimizing this dangerous and gathering threat to our nation.
Here is some… Read full post »
In the midst of all the public back-and-forth regarding President Obama and Syndicated Talk Show Host Rush Limbaugh, an as-yet unreported conversation took place, in private and off-the-record. If my sources are correct, President Obama took time during his busy week in Europe to place… Read full post »
President Obama and the Democrats spent a lot of time talking about Health Care on the campaign trail in… Read full post »
VIDEO SYNOPSIS: A ‘fresh’ new image (for the GOP), a heartfelt apology (to Mr. Limbaugh), a few complaints (AIG and more), and a rare (issue-specific) defense of President Obama. PLUS: a candid recollection from Mortimer’s childhood.
NOTE: The following text is NOT a transcript of this video.
Another fantastic "get"-- and another inexplicable leak from the previously airtight Obama crew. (Although, in fairness, this seems to have its origins on the Saddleback end of things.) I was especially taken with the final two minutes of the recording, which I suspect are rather/… Read full post »
This tape came into my possession earlier today, and I struggled with weather or not to post it. It's definitely a "get", definitely an "exclusive", and I obviously can't reveal either my source or how they came to acquire such a sensitive private recording. (For this reaso… Read full post »
I was fortunate enough to land a 10-minute phone interview with Joe Lieberman on Sunday afternoon-- we talked in between a flurry of phone calls he was making to various Senate colleagues as he desperately tries to influence Tuesday's secret ballot vote. (The Democrats are threat/… Read full post »
