All the attention this week was focused on the removal of “God” and reference to Jerusalem as Israel’s capital from the DNC platform.  Those terms were reinserted based on the rused that two-thirds of delegates approved, when it was clear that there was not the-thirds support on the voice vote. But the…

From reader J: Here’s a pic of a car in Charlottesville, VA, of an OFFICIAL NAVY car with a bumper sticker showing our illustrious leader punching out “zombies.” Are we to infer that these “zombies” are anyone who dares to disagree with him? Whatever happened to “Dissent is patriotic”? Update:  Reader J responds to comments,  I…

Clint Eastwood gave his first post-convention interview today explaining how he came to address the “empty chair” and just what he thinks of the reaction. Speaking with The Carmel Pine Cone, a local California paper, Eastwood said that “President Obama is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people,” and explained that it…

When did Jennifer Granholm acquire a Southern accent?

When did Jennifer Granholm acquire a Southern accent?

Posted by
9/7/2012 at 10:15am
What is it with the Dems? Whenever they want to feel real, they put on fake accents, particularly stereotypical black southern accents. Hillary did it in 2008 and Joe “Chains” Biden did it recently. Do you detect a slight southern twang in Jennifer Granholm’s imitation of Howard Dean, as I do? …

“Unemployment Rate” at 8.1%, labor participation rate drops again, fewer than 100k new jobs created

Posted by

Another one of those anomolies which makes the unemployment rate look better than it is.  The rate as calculated drops when people drop out of the work force because they no longer are counted as unemployed. So while the media and Obama campaign probably will try to spin the drop as a…

Who said that? The same person who says — in agreement with a position I took long ago — Could Elizabeth Warren Cost Obama The Election? Obama’s riff on “you didn’t build that” remains, in my view, the most serious mistake of his campaign so far. There’s a reason the Romneyites have seized on…

I just tuned in to hear Chains Biden tell the already debunked story about Obama’s mother fighting with the insurance company, and relating how that story reflects what makes Barack tick and who he is.  What a perfect start to the night. A presidency built on myth and composite truth.  What in the old days they called…

I’ll admit I haven’t been following this case very closely. But it seems newsworthy that he was convicted in a circumstantial case (h/t creeper): Retired Bolingbrook police officer Drew Peterson was found guilty Thursday of murdering his third wife, Kathleen Savio, the verdict eliciting a gasp from a packed Will County courthouse and ending a case…

Well, 39 minutes and 49 seconds to be precise, once you take out the news breaks and commercials. I was a guest Tuesday night on Nightside with Dan Rea on WBZ 1030, the Boston superstation that covers all of New England: A group of concerned Native American Democrats, including the great-grandson of Geronimo,…

After a string of recounts and runoffs, it’s official that Rep. Lee Anderson will be the Republican nominee in Georgia’s 12th Congressional District. Georgia election officials say a recount has upheld state Rep. Lee Anderson as the winner of the Republican primary runoff in the state’s 12th Congressional District. Secretary of State Brian…
