2010 Texas State Republican Party Platform

The Texas Republican Party has approved their 2010 platform, and I think that it might be better than the new school standards. This is a long post, but there is so much good stuff. A few choice excerpts: The embodiment of the conservative dream in America is Texas. We further support abolition of federal agencies … Continue reading

Gather Your Armies

Rick Barber, an Alabama Republican and candidate for Congress, has forced a runoff for the Republican nomination. The runoff is being held on Tuesday, July 13, and I strongly suggest that all Alabamans show up to the polls and exercise their American right to participate in their own governance. It’s our own form of participatory … Continue reading

An Easy Goal

I suppose that I’m supposed to be happy that the US team tied the England team (1-1) in their first World Cup game this year. I mean, I’m happy that they didn’t lose, and I’m happy that they outperformed expectations, but I’m still finding it difficult to get excited by soccer. Soccer is okay. (Also … Continue reading

Poll: Is Alvin Greene a Republican plant?

There’s been a lot of controversy about the Alvin Greene victory in the South Carolina democrat primary for the Senate. Not many people had heard of Greene before his victory, and yet he pulled out an impressive win. After the primary, it came out that Greene has pending felony obscenity charges against him, that he … Continue reading

Native Tea Partiers

There was an article in the Washington Post today about the lack of a central ‘Tea Party’ organizational structure. The main thrust of the article is that the lack of this central authority means that the power of the Tea Partiers is being diluted among a lot of causes and candidates. This is keeping it … Continue reading

The Future of the democrat Party

I don’t see the big deal. Thursday night, Keith Olbermann had an interview with Alvin Greene, the man who won the democratic nomination to run for the Senate in South Carolina. Here’s a link to the video (link). Watch it. You won’t be sorry. He seemed disconnected from reality, took most of his answers from … Continue reading

Lincoln Halts Halter

In a huge victory for Republicans, incumbent Senator Blanche Lincoln (D-AR) has defeated Bill Halter in the primary runoff in Arkansas. She will run against John Boozman (R-AR) in November. Halter was the darling of the ‘progressive’ crowd and the labor unions, who pumped millions of dollars into Arkansas in an attempt to buy the … Continue reading

Not Qualified For Office

Well, here’s an early taste of the 2010 election for you: Orly Taitz may well be the Republican candidate for California Attorney General. For those not in the know, Orly Taitz is perhaps the prototypical Birther. She’s racked up at least $20,000 in court fines for filing frivolous lawsuits challenging Barack Obama’s right to be … Continue reading

I Apologize, But Only If You Take Offense

I am confused. And outraged. Mainly outraged, and then confused. South Carolina State Senator John M. “Jake” Knotts Jr. (whew!) said last Thursday on a local radio show: “We already got one raghead in the White House — we don’t need another in the governor’s mansion … She’s a raghead that’s ashamed of her religion … Continue reading

What Did He Not Know, and When Did He Not Know It?

It just gets worse and worse. In February, Rep. Sestak (D-PA) let it be known that the Obama administration offered him a job, presumably in exchange for Sestak not running against  Sen. Arlen Spector in the primary. Recently it’s been admitted that the offer came through long-time friend (and former President) Bill Clinton. Sestak has … Continue reading
