Health Care Reform

A lot has been on my mind of late:  The Tea Party, the Coffee party, the GOP, Barack Obama, Nancy Pelosi, Reps. Clyburn, Lewis, and Frank, reproductive health policies getting the short end of the stick, and reading the articles about people’s health care stories on The Nation.  I had considered submitting my own story. […]

As predicted . . .

there was better analysis the following day regarding Obama’s address to Congress.  One of the better articles was from Politico. http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0209/19282.html Even better there’s a poll on the front page of Politico’s website asking what readers thought of Jindal’s rebuttal last night.  As of  1:04 am EST. 67% of Politico readers who answered the poll (8878 […]

Gov. Jindal’s Speech Pattern

Did anyone think Jindal sounded particularly folksy tonight?  I know he can speak.  In fact, we all know he is smart, even if he is a bit crazy with the far right fundamentalist Christianity.  Well, actually, why don’t you decide? His response to Obama’s Address:  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/29374285/ And second, Gov Jindal on Meet the Press:  http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/21134540/vp/29330668#29330668 […]

John Hagee and John McCain

Media Hold McCain, Obama to Different Standards http://www.fair.org/index.php?page=3316    Initially, I heard about McCain soliciting Hagee’s endorsement on NPR.  Too bad, that’s not making national news.  It really is a sad day when I have to go to an obscure news source to find the truth. 

Oh Hillary there you go again.

I don’t know if it’s because my mind seems to be foggy because I’m coming down with the flu (again!) or if Hillary has actually gone off the deep end.  The footage I’ve seen of her patronizing Barack Obama in Ohio struck a chord.  This chord is calibrated to pick up to pick up condescending […]

I can’t keep up!

I can’t keep up with all the endorsements flying in every which direction. I thought I had read the best news for the day when I found that former wrestler Hulk Hogan is endorsing Barack Obama. Check it out here: http://blogs.tnr.com/tnr/blogs/the_plank/archive/2008/01/30/first-kennedy-now-hogan.aspx But, even more creepy. Rupert Murdoch is endorsing Barack Obama through one of his […]

There is something to be said for age . . .

As much as young people are excited about getting older and perhaps hoping their youthful perspective will open up the aged’s eyes, and finally close the gap between yourself and one’s parents; there is something to be said for age. With age comes experience and wisdom that simply cannot be dismissed. Do not fear, this […]

What No One is Talking About in Campaign 08

Amidst all this talk of courting niche constituencies, one population that does not seem to be in the spotlight, yet should, is the Latino vote.  With the US Latino population recently eclipsing African Americans as the largest minority, none of the Democratic candidates seem to be addressing this group with the same dedication.  Republicans have recently been dissing Latinos with […]
