I sent this letter to all Democratic Senators, Senator Jeffords (VT, I), and Senator Allard – since I am priviledged to have one of TIMES’ 5 Worst Senators represent me. Pamela suggested a post which is fine. When I got to a Senator whose name begins with W, he had a notice to the effect that the senate email system doesn’t allow them to consider out of state mail… I’m not sure I can bend my morals to go back and email them all with a fake state and zip code. If you want to send it to your senator, feel free. Continue reading
As I stated in my previous post, Kerry’s percent of the popular vote in the Midwest (48.2%) was comparable to other post-war highs among post 1948 Democrats. Still, no Democrat, except for 1964, has won a majority of the Midwest vote since 1948. This is mainly because Republicans have for … Continue reading
“No more northeast liberals! We “know” from history that they don’t play well in the MidWest and the South!” How many times have we heard statements like this? Probably too much to count. As far as the South goes, yes northeast liberals don’t play well in the South. Of course … Continue reading
Karl Rove is not the only government employee getting paid to help the GOP keep control of the House and Senate.
Time [http://www.time.com/time/magazine/article/0,9171,1186555-1,00.html ] Magazine reports that new WH Chief of Staff Joshua Bolten has developed a five point plan to reverse Bush’s falling popularity and keep his legacy from becoming “investigations and fights over Executive privilege” with newly empowered Democrats. (As opposed to “The Worst President in History?” http://www.rollingstone.com/news/profile/story/9961300/the_worst_president_in_history?rnd=1145468541266&has-player=true&version=22.214.171.1244 ) The frequent references to the time remaining in the 43rd presidency have an intriguing association to the movie “Anne of a 1000 Days”. Anne being one wife of King Henry VIII who died, or was killed, 1000 days after she became his wife. Continue reading
Editor’s Note: John Kerry’s “Dissent” speech yesterday captured the hearts and minds of many who have long supported John Kerry.

I am writing this as I ride a train from Philadelphia to Boston, on my way to witness what, to me, is a momentous anniversary in our national history, even if it will be barely noticed in our national media, let alone by the circus-captivated American public. 35 years ago … Continue reading
My recent post about how the class structure of red and blue states has been misleadingly portrayed hopefully cleared up some misconceptions people might have about what constitutes a “typical” GOP or Democrat voter. The question is, why doesn’t the MSM get it? Let’s face it folks, most pundits (think … Continue reading
Blue staters, are you tired of working for a living but being portrayed as a “latte drinking” liberal by meatheaded pundits who think that blue staters are a bunch of rich snobs? Red state Kerry voters, are you tired of having your “values” being thought to be the same as … Continue reading
The email today brought a letter that said everything I am feeling, thinking and would say about the current state of this country, how we got here, where we are going and what we want to see happen. My thanks to Nancy Greggs for putting it all into such a cogent, focused rejection of this whole tragic period in American history.
To paraphrase, “Hell hath no fury like a voter scorned” Continue reading
