HCR – Democrats in Winter – Part Deux


A few days ago I took issue with the idea that Obama’s Health Care Reform bill would be his “Waterloo” and suggested instead it would be a long, slow, grinding defeat more along the lines of Napoleon’s retreat from Russia. Nothing in the last twenty-four hours has dissuaded me from this view.

Killing Osama bin Laden: Assassination, War Casualty or Criminal?


Thou shalt not kill. That is not only one of the Ten Commandments; it is central to any civil society. Politicians and pundits alike are quick to say that we live under the rule of law.

And now you know… the rest of the story

Yesterday, they unveiled their website: Radio.BarackObama.com.

‘Ultra-left and pro-Muslim groups’ behind firing of veteran SF radio host?


“You’d be surprised how many conservative talk show fans there are here in the Deep Blue Hot Tub,” writes SFGate politics blogger Joe Garofoli.

JD Hayworth: McCain’s Worst Nightmare?


The replacement of “Maverick” Republican John McCain with an authentic conservative is a longtime fantasy held by many of us on the Right.  But could it actually happen?  Former Congressman and Arizona talk radio host JD Hayworth thinks so, and while the polls show he’s got an uphill battle, an upset isn’t impossible.  The Daily [...]
