“I think it’s important we send a message to the people of Michigan and Florida that Democrats care about their lives and their futures,” said Clinton, who denied she was breaking a party accord to stay out of those states. Barack Obama’s camp sees her move differently: “It seems like Hillary Clinton will do or say anything to win an election,” an Obama rep said.

Say or do anything indeed. Especially after a shellacking tonight in SC. Rewrite the rules to benefit me. Whaaa. The delegates were lost when the primaries were moved up. To suggest Obama “doesn’t care […]

Obama Wins South Carolina HUGE

On January 26, 2008 By


So Hillary is already in Tennessee and Edwards is cracking me up with how great these results are for him. Apparently they were polling at a Kucinich level and 18% is a great bump for them. LOL. Whatever. I almost wish Wolf would have just said that: “Whatever”. Edwards is done. Speaking of Kucinich, John now sounds like he has Dennis reasons for staying in the race (ie symbolic). At least he won his home county! I like John. I really do. Wish he could get more attention than Hillary. But at some point you realize it ain’t […]

John Boehner Sees the Light!

On January 26, 2008 By

John Boehner (R-OH), oft lauded among conservative bloggers in our state, is asking his party to “make sacrifices” in order to “sell” the Republican agenda in the fall elections. What sacrifices is John asking his party mates to make?

one-year moratorium on earmarks for all Republicans

Republicans use earmarks? I am SHOCKED! Shocked, I say! I thought this was the exclusive domain of big government Democrats! Republicans? Earmarks? NO WAY!

and a litany of smaller guidelines to curtail wasteful earmarks or member-requested projects that benefit campaign contributors or other private entities.

Republicans request money to benefit their campaign […]
