it depends on what your definition of ‘unfiltered’ is

Or, when a candidate’s supporter starts acting like the candidate they support: The Andre to whom the above commenter refers is Andre Walker, who keeps the blog Georgia Politics Unfiltered. He responded to my above post with a post on his own blog calling me a sucker for blaming Clinton’s campaign for the Obama picture. But rather than let anyone respond, he disabled the comments function on the blog. He even deleted a comment that arrived before he was able to switch off the comments function. So much for unfiltered politics.

kiss me deadly

From today’s Maureen Dowd column: After saying she found her “voice” in New Hampshire, she has turned into Sybil. We’ve had Experienced Hillary, Soft Hillary, Hard Hillary, Misty Hillary, Sarcastic Hillary, Joined-at-the-Hip-to-Bill Hillary, Her-Own-Person-Who-Just-Happens-to-Be-Married-to-a-Former-President Hillary, It’s-My-Turn Hillary, Cuddly Hillary, Let’s-Get-Down-in-the-Dirt-and-Fight-Like-Dogs Hillary. May I suggest one final evolution?

numbers don’t lie; hillary does

Sometimes it’s hard to be a woman, no doubt. But, as Ryan J. Davis proves, voters have been much more amenable to female candidates than African-Americans. Strangely, I haven’t heard Obama whine about that. There are currently 14 female U.S. senators: Barbara Boxer (D-Calif.), Blanche Lincoln (D-Ark.), Olympia Snowe (R-Maine), Susan Collins (R-Maine), Barbara Mikulski (D-Md.), Patty Murray (D-Wash.), Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), Mary Landrieu (D-La.), Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.), Maria Cantwell (D-Wash.), Debbie Stabenow (D-Mich.), Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.), Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska), and Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.). There is currently a single African-American senator, Barack Obama (D-Ill.), who is only the third elected…

tomorrow’s excuses today

If Hillary loses, it won’t have anything to do with her arrogant campaign strategy. Nor will her flirtations with xenophobia and racism be to blame. It’ll be America’s fault. Ellen DeGeneres, another clueless gay Hillbot backer, sets the table (yeah, that was intentional): Degeneres also asked Clinton if she is “being given a harder time” because she is a woman (the question got a loud cheer from the mostly female audience at George Washington University). Hillary operative Taylor Marsh is much less diplomatic: This type of stuff proves we haven’t come any further than the 1800s, not that we needed t-shirts, mugs,…

regrettably, children are the future

A survey of 1,200 public high school students yields depressing results: •43% knew the Civil War was fought between 1850 and 1900. •52% could identify the theme of 1984. •51% knew that the controversy surrounding Sen. Joseph McCarthy focused on communism. In all, students earned a C in history and an F in literature, though the survey suggests students do well on topics schools cover. For instance, 88% knew the bombing of Pearl Harbor led the USA into World War II, and 97% could identify Martin Luther King Jr. as author of the “I Have a Dream” speech. Fewer (77%) knew Uncle…
