The Quinnipiac University poll released Monday showed the former Pennsylvania senator with 36% support among likely Republican primary […]

Lefties Lack Perspective, Hence Their Gloom

by Smitty To clarify, when I said ‘my tepid attitude‘, the scope of ‘my’ was me. I suppose that I can see where, in referring to Bill, he might have thought I was attempting to characterize his apparent severe disdain for Willard Mitt. Such was never my intent. I think Bill may be daft in […]

I Guess Alameda County Supervisor Nadia Lockyer Is A Democrat?

by Smitty When you’ve been this craven and this biased for this long, the default assumption is that any public figure experiencing ‘life difficulties’ must be a Democrat.

EXCLUSIVE: Election Day in Hell, Michigan: Does Romney Have a Snowball’s Chance of Winning?

Election Day reporting from Hell, Michigan, Tuesday, Feb. 28, 2012 THREE MILES FROM HELL, Michigan On my way from Troy to Grand Rapids — site of Rick Santorum’s Michigan primary victory party tonight — I got a late start and realized I wouldn’t make it in time for Senator Santorum’s 3 p.m. event at his […]

The Chevy Volt Was A Positive Experience That Enhanced My Self-Esteem

by Smitty I, for one, rejoice at the emotional lift derived by our good POTUS thanks to the Chevy Volt.

And now, #OccupyResoluteDesk must get back […]
