What is the Logical Conclusion?

Doug Mataconis on why Ron Paul cannot be President: It’s not because there’s anything wrong with him. It’s because there is too much wrong with the system. Well, if not now, when? If not Ron Paul, who? Is the system really so broken that it can’t be fixed by anyone? If so, what is the […]


Great-Grandmothers, Tact, and Spanking

I had a conversation with a really nice lady while waiting outside at the OB’s office yesterday. I would have never guessed her as a great-grandmother if she hadn’t told me she was there with her granddaughter who had a 10 month old baby. We talked about a lot of things having to do with […]


Do The Republicans Want Another Goldwater?

I think Rogel is right in his contention that the Republicans could lay a great conservative groundwork for the future by nominating Ron Paul. But I think the Republicans would have a big problem with this because they think it would basically be a concession of the 2008 election. And whether they are aware of […]


Turning Into a Housewife

So I’m sitting here surfing/writing/reading/napping and there are all of these crazy shows about having babies on TLC that document parents’ first few days at home with their babies. Either our kid is really easy, we are really laid back and easy going, or both. These people stress over the slightest little things, get rattled […]


Deputy Fired for Stealing $10 in Gas

From the KNS: A Knox County sheriff’s deputy was terminated today after being charged with stealing less than $10 worth of gasoline. I think it is more newsworthy that all of the other incidents involving county employees and greater sums of money haven’t ended in termination. That’s exactly what would happen at my job, and […]

New Theme…Sorry for Any Issues

Please be patient over the next couple of days if things get really screwed up when you’re trying to view this site. I’m going through my first attempt at developing a WordPress theme, and I’m sure there are plenty of things I’ve missed and will change. I’ve done a few things that I hope will […]


Television is to JFK as the Internet is to…

Want to take a shot at completing this analogy? I wasn’t alive back in the JFK era, but one thing that we’ve always heard about JFK is that he was the first President to really utilize television in both the elections and in his Presidency. All of the other candidates were stuck in the old […]


Ron Paul’s ‘Nutjobs’ Good For the GOP?

Bob Krumm basically asserts that Ron Paul is pulling all of the wackos out of the Republican Party, and in doing so somehow giving those who are left supporting the remaining *cough cough* conservative *cough cough* candidates more credibility. Still, Ron Paul’s nut jobs are doing the GOP a huge favor. For years–especially the Clinton […]


Comments Off on Reason on Novack

Reason on Novack

Reason has a nice little summary of a talk Robert Novack gave this morning about the different Presidents he has covered, and it doesn’t seem like he’s been overly impressed with any of them. I heard Novack on Mancow‘s show yesterday morning, and he had some pretty interesting things to say, namely his dislike for […]


Comments Off on Ron Paul at the Iowa Straw Poll

Ron Paul at the Iowa Straw Poll

This site lets you donate money to pay for an Iowan to attend the Straw Poll and help out Dr. Paul. This is a grassroots effort in contrast to the methods used by other candidates of buying large amounts of tickets from campaign funds and giving them to supporters along with transportation. This effort is […]
