The game is up of fantasizing about a loyal ally.
And yet another Democrat, who threw himself on the proverbial grenade by voting for the health care bill, drops out. David Obey (D-WI) is the latest health care suicide bomber to call it quits. I just hope he’s not expecting 72 virgins. This is particularly painful for the Democrats, since Obey’s name lent itself so [...]
When it comes to John McCain, Sarah Palin just can’t win.
Campaigning for the man who catapulted her onto the national stage has prompted some McCain detractors to demote her from conservative rock star to unprincipled RINO sell-out. But were she to snub her former running mate, she’d be branded a disloyal backstabbing ingrate.

This, as he described, was just one [...]

For now, the planning consists entirely of private conversations, with Obama aides at […]
Last year, White House economists claimed that the $862 billion stimulus would create 3.3 million jobs. Since then, the nation has lost more than 3 million jobs. That’s a 6.3 million jobs gap.
