About last night (‘s elections)

Posted by  ▪  November 9, 2011

I did not follow yesterday’s elections as closely as I should have.  I’ve been a bit, er, distracted the past week. Ohio was a loss for those who want to save state and local governments from the grip of unsustainable

Herman Cain News Conference (Update – complete denial)

Posted by  ▪  November 8, 2011

Summary of press conference.  Complete denial.  Doesn’t even remember Bialek.  As to other named accuser, Karen Kraushaar, repeats that only accusation he remembers is about gesturing the height of his wife.  Took plenty of questions from reporters from major networks.

“Not exactly a profile in courage” Tweet of the Day

Posted by  ▪  November 8, 2011

I’ve enjoyed watching various candidates on Brett Baier’s Center Seat. It’s a place for the panel to question the candidates pretty vigorously. But one candidate will not appear. It’s inexplicable. And now confirmed:  Added: Baier still is trying, this time

Fear of Newt on blog-team Romney

Posted by  ▪  November 8, 2011

I’ve been focusing on Newt’s rise since the debates in early September, when he distinguished himself as the statesman on stage and the guy focused on the ultimate prize, defeating Obama.  While Perry and Romney squabbled, and Santorum and Bachmann
