Election + Self-Preservation = Fear + Anxiety + Depression

I’d love to believe this post at Pajamas Media: Why I’m Still Convinced McCain Will Prevail: … I continue to think McCain can pull victory from the jaws of defeat. Why? Not because of any complex statistical alchemy but for the simple old fashioned reason that I do not believe the instinct for self-preservation has been […]

McCain Swings, Misses

Again, a post to demonstrate that this blog is not a fan of McCain. From the candidate’s interview with Larry King… On race: In a transcript of an interview taped for broadcast Wednesday night on CNN’s “Larry King Live,” McCain said people will vote “for the best of reasons, not the worst of reasons.” He […]

Center for the Advancement of Capitalism on OpposingViews.com

The Center for the Advancement of Capitalism (CAC) is doing good work at OpposingViews.com, a site where “verified experts” (not sure of the process) present (wait for it) opposing views on various topic. Here’s a good one from the CAC, on the issue of who’s going to “end the financial crisis,” McCain or Obama. As […]

McCain and Obama – Two Sides of the Same Coin

It may seem like this blog is pro-McCain, given how anti-Obama some recent posts have been. To help rectify that erroneous impression, here’s a bit from Capitalism Magazine on McCain’s fundamentally self-sacrificial sense of life: …McCain sees America as the land of service, where our goodness is measured by our willingness to sacrifice. Is this America’s nature? If […]

The Prince and the Pauper

Compare this bit: In Colorado, Obama reveled in his largest U.S. crowd to date, with local police estimating that “well over” 100,000 people packed Denver’s Civic Center Park and stretched even to the distant steps of the state Capitol. The enthusiastic sea of people prompted a “goodness gracious” from Obama as he took the stage. […]

More on Race…

More on race, from ABC News: The dynamics of age and race are a continuing undercurrent in the election, and one in which Obama continues to fare better. Ninety percent of likely voters say they’re comfortable with his being the first African-American president, 76 percent “entirely” comfortable. But they divide 50-49 percent on comfort with […]

Race Continues to Rear it’s Ugly Head

I’m beginning to read more and more about race as Election Day looms near. I haven’t studied it in any depth, but I am fairly certain that race was more of a subtext for the last few months (except, of course, for the odd claim by the Obama Nation that McCain is being racist according […]

Is Joe the Plumber Going to Win It for McCain?

Is The One losing steam? Personally, I don’t see much philosophical difference between McCain and Obama (they’re both altruists and, I would submit, equally mystical), but I would sure love to see the Left eat some crow. And if Obama loses, it proves the point that one guy (in this case, Joe the Plumber) can […]

Saturday Night Live Throws McCain a Bone

I actually disagree with Little Green Footballs on this one. Saturday Night Live isn’t trying to “redeem themselves” for relentlessly going after McCain and, particularly, Palin. I believe that they’ve simply joined the rest of the Left in pretty much assuming that Obama’s already won the election, and they’re being magnanimous in that smug, Leftist fashion. I’m […]

According to the New Yorker, McCain is a Plate of Shit with Broken Glass in it

There are many things about Obama that I dislike intensely (and the same is true about McCain, incidentally). In fact, “dislike intensely” is not nearly strong enough; “find to be evil” is probably more accurate. But one of the things that I absolutely hate about Obama is how smug and righteous are many of his supporters. […]
