by Smitty As fortune would have it, I’m off to a retirement ceremony for my boss last year in Afghanistan, so I shan’t call in and harass. Nevertheless, the details are here, and you will be energized by taking in Pete’s show, which I can attest comes in just fine over the internet. Also on […]

Mitt Romney’s presidential campaign strategy could be summarized in four words: “It’s Obama’s Economy, Stupid.” Romney and his aides have made clear that they regard every other issue as a distraction from what polls — as well as common sense — indicate as the main concern of American voters: Jobs, the economy and the explosion […]

Subject to Misinterpretation

In an e-mail to some friends this afternoon, I wrote: While I was working on other posts and not following Twitter, it seems my feed blew up with ‘H8Rs’ who either missed the point or else got the point, and decided to blow me up for having pointed out some obvious but uncomfortable truths about […]

Couple Of Points On The Race Card

by Smitty Da Tech Guy wonders why the race card went unplayed in the case of Herman Cain. If you flip it over, the Race Card says “Property of the National Socialist Democrat Workers Party”.
