Alaska Senator Ted Stevens: Convicted Felon

Alaska Senator Ted Stevens: Convicted Felon

For those of you in favor of senatorial term limits, here’s your new poster boy: Republican Senator Stevens was convicted yesterday on all seven felony counts related to his lying about the $250,000 in gifts and services he received from VECO, Corp., an oil services company, to renovate his Alaska home. Rather than resign, like most convicted felons would do for the good of their party, Stevens vows to return to Alaska where he’ll restart his campaign for the senate…

John McCain gets Al Qaeda’s Endorsement

John McCain gets Al Qaeda’s Endorsement

Last week we were hearing all about how Obama would be “tested” by anti-American groups if he were elected president.  Biden even said it, and it was reported as a gaffe, but I think the point Biden was trying to make was that Obama would be tested, but he would stand up to whomever does the testing and pass the test. McCain didn’t see it that way.  He thought the very idea Obama getting tested was a sign of weakness, and that…

Republicans are Happier than Democrats?

Republicans are Happier than Democrats?

According to the latest Pew Research poll they are: The good news for Republicans: You are happier than Democrats. You always have been, and you probably always will be. Never mind that your presidential candidate is sinking in the polls while your president plumbs historic depths of popular scorn and your free market squeals for intervention while your Wall Street investments evaporate. You are not just happier than the other guys, but more of you are very happy, according to…

Are You a REAL American? Do The Daily Show Math to Find Out

Are You a REAL American? Do The Daily Show Math to Find Out

Are you?  I bet you thought that by virtue of being an American citizen living in the U.S.A. you truly were a REAL American.  WRONG!  You see, there are anti-Americans among us, and you may be one of them! How can you tell if you are a REAL American.  All you have to do is do this simple math problem that Jon Stewart thought up for The Daily Show: Why might you be concerned about your “American-ness?” Because some nutjobs…

Sarah Palin: Celebrity Clotheshorse

And again I ask, Who is the celebrity now? From Politico.com: The Republican National Committee has spent more than $150,000 to clothe and accessorize vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin and her family since her surprise pick by John McCain in late August. According to financial disclosure records, the accessorizing began in early September and included bills from Saks Fifth Avenue in St. Louis and New York for a combined $49,425.74.

Obama/Biden vs. McCain/Palin: A Reversal of Resumes

Obama/Biden vs. McCain/Palin: A Reversal of Resumes

“The Old Viking” forwarded me a viral email today.  I did a quick Google search and found that it’s up on quite a few sites.  I get a lot of these from both sides and I don’t usually post them, but I really like this one, so here it is: What if the resumes of Obama/Biden and McCAin/Palin were switched around?  Think about it.  Would the country’s collective point of view be different?  Could racism be the culprit? Ponder the…

Obama’s “90%” Ad

Obama’s “90%” Ad

Washington is a blue state, so we don’t get anywhere near the number of presidential campaign ads as those who live in the tightly contested states like Missouri, Iowa, and Pennsylvania.  We do, however, have a tightly contested gubernatorial race, and Biden did visit our state on Sunday to campaign for Obama and our incumbent Democratic governor, Christine Gregoire. During the week leading up to this rally, Obama started running what I think is his best campaign ad that I’ve seen so far. …
