Obama Has The Intelligence, Dedication And Dignity Of Jackie Robinson


This is my reaction to Marlene Phillips' Article on The Huffington Post:WOW! You hit it right on the head! A year ago, I worried that America may not be ready to vote for a Black man. Thankfully, a majority of Americans have proven me wrong. Obama's calm demeanor and temperament are just as important as his policies. McCain's demeanor is just scary. He looks for excuses for his actions and the

You can't put lipstick on THIS pig


This floored me this morning:This morning on CNN Late Edition with Wolf Blitzer Leslie Sanchez, a Republican strategists, talking about the economy moving the public against the party in power and towards Obama and not any of his policies, said "let's call a spade a spade."One of the other 'talking heads' on this show was Donna Brazile.The Republicans were quick to go after Obama for his '

Prez debate SHOULD be postponed!!!


Yes, I am calling on Obama to join McCain in postponing the Presidential Debate, scheduled for tomorrow (Friday the 26th) to next Thursday, October 2nd. This will allow the two senators to be sure that a compromise plan completely passes both houses and is signed by the President.But, in order to be fair to the cities, universities, and other entities that have spent millions of dollars in

Nobody is this F-ing stupid, are they??


Really, does Johnny-Mac really think that we are so stupid as to believe that this woman is qualified to be a 72-year old heartbeat away from the Presidency? Only people as dumb and Sarah Palin seems to be would fall for this line of utter bullshit.To paraphrase the principal in the movie Billy Madison:Governor Palin, what you've just said is one of the most insanely idiotic things I have ever



Alaska's proximity to Russia has been touted as Palin's foreign policy experience and thus her creds to be Veep. Here is an exchange from the Gibson interview with Palin: GIBSON: What insight into Russian actions, particularly in the last couple of weeks, does the proximity of the state give you? PALIN: They're our next door neighbors and you can actually see Russia from land here in Alaska,

To Surge, with love,


McCain loves to tell us how the "surge" was his idea and how it worked and how it makes him a great leader. Of course, he ignores all of the other things that happened at the same time, the Anbar Awakening, Sadr standing his troops down, building trust and relationships with local leaders, $$$ for not fighting, etc.Now we have an Admiral telling us that sending in more troops won't work in

Getting Screwed......


We've all felt the pinch of out-of-control fuel prices, but who knew that what while we were getting screwed at the pump by the oil companies, Department of Interior employees in charge of oil royalties were, well, getting screwed by oil company employees. (image: the new Phallic symbol)U.S. oil officials accused of sex with energy company workersWASHINGTON - Government officials handling

Obama, McCain: academia and service to community


And what about the academic records of the Presidential candidates?In John McCain, we have a man that barely graduated from the Naval Academy, and most likely would have been expelled had his father and grandfather not been admirals. The Naval Academy is a fine academic institution, McCain just failed to take advantage of the opportunity that was given to him. This closely mirrors the record of

College Smörgåsbord


Like many people, Sarah Palin changed colleges during her undergraduate years. Nothing remarkable about that on the surface. This is a little different, however. It seems that Sarah attended not two different colleges, but FOUR different colleges.She started out @ Hawaii-Pacific in Fall of '82 as a Business Administration major. She spent only one semester there, as she transfered to North Idaho

Supporting special needs children..


with words, but not deeds.Last night in her speech, Sarah Palin said that she would be a friend to families of special needs children. Great words, and coming from a parent with a special needs child, almost believable. Almost, that is, because her actions as governor of Alaska show otherwise. She cut spending for special needs by 62%.Washington Monthly-fact checking PalinMcCarpetbagger, Palin,

A bull-dog and a pit bull...


but which is which.....Palin is a good fit for McCarpetbagger: both use snarky, negative comments trying to belittle Obama's community service. I would rather have someone that went out into the community to work at the grass roots level to make changes in people's lives like Obama did, as opposed to McCain who fell in love with the power-broking that he saw behind closed doors in DC and made

Senile, or just letting the cat out of the bag


Ok, there are slips, mis-speaks, et al when one is giving impromptu speeches, but a foul-up like this when you have teleprompters????This could mean one of several things:1. She is senile.... nah, the Republicans would never have someone senile in a key position.2. Palin is about to be dumped/resign she just came from a secret meeting where it was decided that Pawlenty will replace her.3. They

Well, Tedski, I bet we Know what Palin's favorite Beatles tune is!!


Last week Ted Prezelski blogged from the Democratic National Convention, asking vairous Arizona delegates several questions, notably "What is you favorite Beatles album?".Well, not sure what Obama, Biden and McCain would answer, but it is clear that the Vee-PILF's answer would be:HAPPINESS IS A WARM GUN!(sing along, folks: Click here for the MIDI FILE)She's not a girl who misses muchDo do do do

Beauty, yes... Brains, well...... who needs 'em.


Well, the more that comes out about McCarpetbagger's veep choice, the more I question our senator-in-absentia 's wisdom. (well, like I really needed more ammo).Here are some wonderful tidbits from the VPILF:From Michael Tomasky's Blog:n 2006, the Alaska state branch of the right-wing Eagle Forum asked gubernatorial candidate Sarah Palin if she was offended by the inclusion of the phrase "Under

McCain picks a GILF for VEEP


Well, John McCain pulled his Veep from left... no, make that RIGHT field by selecting a very conservative woman as his Veep, Alaska Governor Palin.Interesting choice, I think. She is young, 44, conservative, and good looking. When the word started coming out that she was his choice, I 'used the google' to find out a bit more about her. On the Wonkette* blog, they refer to her as a GILF (Governor

Stealing 2nd


Ohio governor Ted Strickland just delivered a great line:"George Bush came into office on 3rd base and he stole 2nd, and John McCain was cheering him all of the way"Too funny! And too true!

TIME has gone today...


The TIME initiative will not be on the ballot come November:TIME transportation initiative off the ballot The Arizona Secretary of State's Office today disqualified the tax package from the November ballot, ruling that supporters of the measure failed to submit enough valid signatures. The TIME coalition of business and political leaders, which counted Gov. Janet Napolitano among

Another Crisis: Where's George?


George Bush's ineptness has reached a new low. While Russia more or less launches a full scale war on the democratic nation of Georgia, George Bush spent another day in Beijing, playing "sports fan in Chief" instead of commander in chief. And not content to be a gracious guest, he made sure to piss off his hosts by attacking their oppression of religious freedom from the steps of one of the few

Stick a fork in Hillary,


She is DONE:Edwards to Endorse Obama.Maybe now, Hillary will bow out gracefully so we can get on with getting the White House back!

Republican Rick Renzi Rejects Resignation


Embattled AZ Congressman Rick Renzi (R CD-1) has said he won't resign his seat, claiming that resigning would make him look guilty:Through his press office in Washington D.C., Renzi said: “I will not resign and take on the cloak of guilt because I am innocent.”, it is not any potential resignation that makes you look guilty, it is all

Forget the blanket, Linus can pull his Glock 9 to feel Secure


Well, leave it to the Arizona Legislature to try and find more reasons and places for folks to draw their guns.Several years ago, it was guns in bars. Last year it was a bill allow guns in any public location, and earlier this session the bill to allow teachers to pack heat.Now, they want to make it easier for folks to draw their weapons without breaking the law, as long as they feel or perceive

Renzi Indicted


Yup, at long last, AZ congressman Rick Renzi has been indicted on numerous Federal charges.From CNN.COM:In a 35-count indictment handed up by a grand jury in Arizona, Renzi is charged with conspiracy, wire fraud, money laundering extortion and insurance fraud. The indictment stem from Renzi's efforts to use his position in Congress to promote land deals in Arizona by a former business partner,

Shadegg out: Is this a sign that McCain may resign?


February 22: Well, He changed his mind and will run for re-election.FLIP FLOP.------John Shadegg is not running for reelection.Speculation is rampant: priming himself to run for the Senate when McCain becomes President? Wants to avoid a tough race vs Bob Lord? Tired and wants to spend time with his family?Until just a few minutes ago, I was certain that McCain wasn't going resign his seat unless

My Letter to Sen. Aboud


As an educator I was absolutely appalled by your statement that you might be able to support Russell Pearce-Karen Johnson proposed bill that would allow teachers to carry guns in schools.The actual cases where a gun in the hands of a teacher could have possibly prevented violence are few. Incidents at Columbine, Va Tech, UofA College of Nursing could possibly been mitigated by a teacher had they

Aboud owes an explaination.....


Russell Pearce is well known for sponsoring or supporting asinine legislation, so his latest legislative proposal should not come as to much of a shock. What is shocking is that there is a legislator from Southern Arizona that says she could possibly support it.According to the Arizona Daily Star, the proposed piece of legislation from Rep. Pearce and Senator Karen Johnson would allow teachers,
