The charges against Sarah Palin leaked to the press by unnamed McCain staffers hardly come as a surprise. When a presidential nominee selects a running mate, the VP candidate always brings an entourage. Like any merger, staff rivalries are bound to surface, especially during the stresses of a...

As the presidential campaign neared its final throes, vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin seized on a theme her Republicans handlers hoped would reverse their imminent defeat. Governor Palin claimed small towns were “the real America” and anointed them as the “pro-America areas of this great...

In January, the U.S. will cross a barrier that many felt would never be breached—in our lifetimes at least. We will inaugurate an African-American president. Yet, this morning I remembered a prediction made back in the sixties. The feminists of that day claimed the U.S. would elect a black male as...

Gentle Readers, it's a great day. History was made, and it was amazing. Just freaking amazing. Althought bittersweet here in California, where it looks like it's possible Prop 8 might win. Hopefully it might be turned over. However, with Senator McCain losing, this means one thing: We won't see...

When I was an undergrad at the University of Michigan, we used to all chant "the whole world is watching" in response to many situations -- El Salvador, missile defense systems, -- the list could go on and on. The idea of being outraged and taking to the central "Diag" to shout...

For the past few weeks, western media has been running stories on how "Hindus are driving out Christians" in India. New York Times (never the best of sources, but apprently widely read in that country) recently ran a headline screaming "Hindus Threat to Christians - Convert of Flee....

McCain and Palin are for the regular, normal, everyday Americans, the real people who work hard, go to church, pay their bills, and in particular, the regular Joes (not just plumbers) and the regular hockey/soccer/football/softball/t-ball-Moms who live in Pro-America.  I’m a little concerned that...

Somewhere between Sarah Palin calling blue states un-American and citing Obama as being a misogynist because he didn't pick Hillary Clinton for his running mate, information has come to light that this so-called " maverick" and "reformer" is actually a big spender.  However,...

To dress Sarah Palin and the Palinettes for campaign stops, the Republican party has spent over $150,000. Records show that in September $49,425.74 went to Saks Fifth Avenue with $75,062.63 going to other major department stores, including Barney’s and Bloomingdale’s in New York and Macy’s in...
