Dead Heat

Monday, October 24th, 2005

Tim Kaine and Jerry Kilgore remain in a dead heat in Virginia for the Governor’s seat. Unsurprisingly, the Washington Post has endorsed Tim Kaine, with a very elogquent article describing him as, “a responsible, forward-thinking, unifying, principled politician with brains, guts and know-how.” It seems likely that this election will come down to the last [...]

Syrial Killer

Friday, October 21st, 2005

So the U.N. has announced that it has implicated Syrian intelligence officials in the killing of Former Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri, no surprise. Also, no surprise that Bush responds to the allegations with caution, knowing his Secretary of State recently alluded to possible use of force in Syria as a result of the Iraq war. [...]

In the Slammer

Tuesday, October 18th, 2005

It appears that Tom DeLay will be booked: Rep. Tom DeLay will likely be booked in a Texas county jail this week despite attempts by his attorneys to bypass the fingerprinting and mug shot process. The former House majority leader was forced to step down from the post last month when he was indicted by [...]

Strike up the band

Monday, October 17th, 2005

I think this is a truely great idea from a truely inspirational man. Walter Cronkite, one of my parents’ heroes, reiterated a thought by Robert Reich from four years ago. Political Wire has this blurb. And I think the Democrats need a pep rally right now. We are poised to really run house in 2006, [...]

2 Percent

Thursday, October 13th, 2005

Last week analysts theorized that Bush’s sub-40 approval numbers were the floor for this president. That due to the makeup of American electoral politics no elected (hah!) president could go much lower. A new NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll confirms his low approval numbers and adds this tidbit of information: 2 percent of African Americans approve [...]

A President Undone

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

Really interesting article from the Washington Post today about Bush’s body language during an early morning interview on the Today Show. It is evident that the once fearless W. has become a man undone and his Presidency has been taken down due to his incompetence and lies. Read more about this article here The fidgeting [...]

Some real po theads

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

Interesting moment at last night’s New Jersey Gubernatorial debate between Senator Jon Corzine (D) and Doug Forrester (R) when they both said, if elected, they would sign a medical marijuana bill into law. “With respect to providing relief under doctor’s supervision, under the proper circumstances, I think we need to provide all medical resources, and [...]

Jerry Kilgore: You Make Me Sick

Wednesday, October 12th, 2005

In less than one month, Virginians will be headed to the polls to cast their votes in what will be the most important election in 2005. Currently, polls are neck and neck and as a result this campaign is becoming one of the nastiest races this citizen pundit has ever seen. To be short: Jerry [...]

Well my house will be cold this winter

Friday, October 7th, 2005

The rich get richer and the poor will be freezing to death. I wish this was surprising. I wish this still made me angry. I wish things were different, but this is George Bush’s America we live in and there’s only one thing the Republican leadership cares about: fealty to their corporate overlords. The AP [...]

What Are They Thinking?

Friday, October 7th, 2005

First, a word about the New York Times and their new $50 per year Times Select plan that puts the op-eds and other select features behind a subscription wall. How incredibly short-sighted and foolish of the Times. They’ve turned a blind eye to blogs and the huge impact that citizen journalism is having in pushing [...]
