Single Issue Advocacy Groups Are Stupid

Filed in National by on May 30, 2008 9 Comments

Environmental groups are the worst. Ignorant. Dumb. Etc… They always give Mike Castle high scores based on the few crumb votes that he tosses off each year to keep his “maverick” credentials burnished – and utterly ignore that fact that he worked hard to elect George Bush TWICE and voted with Bush on Iraq 95% […]

I was able to make it to the SEU meeting today to see where this task force is going.  Charlie Copeland was not in attendance, but there was no problem getting a quorum this time.  It was better attended than the previous one in terms of the public as well.  There were about 25 people […]

More Clinton Post Mortem Irony

Filed in National by on May 29, 2008 14 Comments

Elliot at Election Inspection makes a great point. This isn’t amusing to me, in fact it’s kinda tragic, for all of Clinton’s talk about being unfairly attacked because of her gender, she’s actually made it harder for another woman to make a credible run at the presidency in the future.

Wouldn’t it be great if Joe Biden just hauled off and punched Joe Lieberman in his stupid fucking face? That would be awesome. Tom Carper would come running to help Lieberman and his skinny girl arms would be trying to push Biden back, but Joe would just push through Carper like someone passing through a […]

Adventures in Maverickyness — Flip Flops Are Not Just for Kids Anymore!

Filed in National by on May 28, 2008 18 Comments

The biggest drawback to the Democrats not officially settled on a candidate is that John McCain gets to fly beneath the press radar, flip-flopping his legacy away, out of view of the folks who nod their heads when they head “moderate” and “McCain” in the same sentence. So now he has flip-flopped — again — […]
