The Radio Ad 3 Days In

Filed in Uncategorized by on May 31, 2007 11 Comments

It is hard to figure out whether or not a radio ad is having an impact on website traffic, but I think I have found some evidence that we are gaining traction.  WordPress gives stats on all sorts of things.  One of the stats is the search terms that people used to find the site.  […]

We don’t have enough data points yet to run a regressions analysis and figure out our ROI, but the ad was well received in the comments section and perhaps the best validation of all is that we have some people willing to fund a few more weeks of it. Boohya!! The first few weeks (which […]

Dontcha Miss the Old Days…

Filed in Uncategorized by on May 31, 2007 3 Comments

You know what I mean. The old days back when we knew that the Russians were the bad guys. Back when we only had to worry about mutually assured destruction. Where if things went south, they really went south. I was think about that when I heard this story on BBC this morning. It’s just […]

Remember back on 2003 when Howard Dean was running for the Democratic nomination and he said all of those crazy things about Bush, like “He has no plan” and “Bush is creating a terrorist haven in Iraq” and then we got to hear that audio of him in Iowa and the DEGOP decided to have […]

More Iraq Insanity

Filed in Uncategorized by on May 30, 2007 3 Comments

Bush now admits that he wants to keep troops in Iraq for 50 years. All those permanent bases we said were were not building. Yep. We’re building them. He compares the situation to Korea (in spite of the fact that Iraq is nothing like Korea). Read it here. For the Record: Mike Castle supports George […]

Mike Castle Backs Bush on NCLB; Continues to Reject Calls to DUMP Bush’s Fiasco

Big shocker, I know. 100 year old looking, dodering and clearly sporting a dirty diaper, Rep. Mike Castle met with Del. teachers.  While the teachers, parents and educators have had it with Bush, Mike Castle keeps defending his man. “Castle, R-Del., met with state officials, teachers, PTA members and school officials from around the state […]

Wonky Wednesday: Our Can’t-Do Government

Filed in Uncategorized by on May 30, 2007 7 Comments

Part of what distinquished the “greatest generation” that won WW II is the quality of the leadership in our national government. It’s a quality sorely lacking in the current administration. This lament from the eerily prescient Russell Baker in 1982 is even truer today: Can you imagine any Government of the present age getting itself […]

Advances in design, legislative support and “net metering” are turning the idea of homebased wind power into a reality.

from Paul Krugman “Trust and Betrayal”:  To keep the war going, the administration has brought the original bogyman back out of the closet. At first, Mr. Bush said he would bring Osama bin Laden in, dead or alive. Within seven months after 9/11, however, he had lost interest: “I wouldn’t necessarily say he’s at the […]
