Giuliani-Torre ‘08…

A couple of months ago, I floated the idea of Rudy Giuliani picking a running mate early.  I suggested that running mate be former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum.

Why the Ron Paul Campaign is DOA

Although presidential candidate Ron Paul is a life long Libertarian, he has chosen to operate within the Republican Party. The Libertarian Party has never been able to get off the ground due to some of its extreme positions and Paul, like other Libertarians, eventually found a home in a broadened RNC.

Another Blow Against Vaccine Hysteria—or is it

The vaccine preservative thimerosal has jumped the safety hurdle. Again. So indicates a recent large epidemiological study in the New England Journal of Medicine. “Again” is the problem, though. One huge study after another has cleared thimersorosal as a cause of child developmental disorders, and specifically autism, but there is a powerful lobby that couldn’t care less.

Read Our Lips: NO New Amnesty!

To Harry Reid, most Democrats, all RINOs, and President George Bush:

We the people understand that the U.S. Senate is considering yet another idiotic attempt to grant amnesty to upwards of 38 million illegal aliens who have invaded the sovereign nation known as the United States.

Anti-War Media Change Focus

With President Bush and Vice President Cheney warning that Iran must not be permitted to obtain nuclear weapons, our media have shifted their focus from Iraq. The shift is apparent in the decision by many reporters to make a controversy out of the fact that Senator Hillary Clinton, the Democratic frontrunner, voted for a resolution declaring the Iranian Revolutionary Guards to be a terrorist force. The resolution states a simple truth, but it has been interpreted by the anti-war media and the far-left in the Democratic Party as war-mongering and saber-rattling.

Internet Taxes to Come on Halloween…

You want scary? Try the fact that the moratorium on government taxation of the Internet comes to an end on October 31st. And, in true fright movie fashion, it happens at midnight. One expects a crack and flash of lightning to occur over the Capitol just as the witching hour tolls. But, will there be a wave of villagers with pitchforks to stop it? That’s up to all of us.

Homeless for Hillary No Occident

Some things never change.  The Los Angeles Times last week reported that in New York City Hillary Clinton brings fresh meaning to Chinese take out.  Her campaign’s hauling in bundles of cash from impoverished Chinese areas.  Dishwashers, waiters, street vendors, and other folks not normally considered fat cats are generously donating.

But according to the latest Zogby poll, she’s also leading the race for the most despised candidate in the country…

Why Do We Allow America’s Enemies to Run Schools Here

With such a headline, you’d be excused for assuming this piece is just another attack on our failing schools, just another screed against the evils of teachers’ unions, or a whack against the left wing lunatics who run our universities.

IMUS, Take II

I confess; I typically ranked as more than an irregular listener of the Imus morning program. My sensitivity meter was calibrated in such a way that when I listened to him, the needle typically hovered between the “mildly annoying-yet funny” and the “gratuitously shocking but hilarious” markers.
