Obama Gets Ohio…Lights out for Mac

By Marc Comtois | November 4, 2008 |

Ohio has gone to Obama and that about does McCain in. ‘Nuff said.

Picking Obama’s Theme Song

By Justin Katz | November 3, 2008 |

OK. This one might only ring bells for anybody who worked in a record store in the early ’90s. When I heard Obama’s “righteous wind” comment, my first thought wasn’t Mao, but a certain song that would work well for the One. And no, it’s not the one that Shannen Coffin suggests, but “Break Like…

Nobody Beats Him!

By Justin Katz | November 3, 2008 |

The imagery of the Obama phenomenon has reminded me of something in recent pop culture, but I couldn’t quite put my finger on it until today: You’ll recall that Elaine was entranced by a man because she was subliminally remembering the glow and audio of an old commercial in which he was The Wiz. How…

Summarizing the philosophical problems with Barack Obama’s view of the world

By Donald B. Hawthorne | November 2, 2008 |

Roger Kimball does an excellent job at articulating the core philosophical problems with Barak Obama’s candidacy: When he looks back on campaign 2008, what will Obama most regret? I suspect it will the same thing John McCain most appreciated: the now-famous off-hand comment to Joe the Plumber. It’s not, said Obama, that I want to…

Obama on his desire for a civilian national security force

By Donald B. Hawthorne | November 2, 2008 |

Obama calls for a civilian national security force. Questions for Obama. Given the intimidation and threats we have seen from Obama supporters against those who oppose the One, don’t you wonder if people like Stanley Kurtz and Joe the Plumber are feeling as free today at the thought of this CNSF?

Obama’s views on coal industry

By Donald B. Hawthorne | November 2, 2008 |

Obama Promises San Francisco Audience He Will Bankrupt Coal Industry!! Send to your friends in Pennsylvania, Ohio, West Virginia, Virginia, Colorado, Kentucky, Indiana, and Illinois. More. ADDENDUM Power Line: Maybe the American people just didn’t have quite enough time to get to know Barack Obama. It seems inconceivable to me that a candidate as arrogant…

Two Ideas in Two Dimensions

By Justin Katz | November 1, 2008 |

Mark Steyn had reason for a unique perspective, among pundits, of the presidential campaign: I was away for much of the summer and, when I returned, the entire campaign felt like an absurd satire I wasn’t quite up to speed on. But truly, in a world in which the many illegal foreign contributions to the…

Re: Any bids for $75,000?

By Monique Chartier | October 31, 2008 |

Donald notes the latest lowering of the income level at which a taxpayer “will not see one dime’s worth of tax increase” in an Obama administration. Let’s be clear that it has been a steady and orderly backing down from that $250,000. > Starts at $250,000. [The campaign presumably figures out shortly thereafter, either from…

Any bids for $75,000?

By Donald B. Hawthorne | October 31, 2008 |

You gotta love these pillaging Dems: For the second time in a week, a prominent Democrat has downgraded Barack Obama’s definition of the middle class — leading Republicans to question whether he’ll stick to his promise not to raise taxes on anyone making under $250,000. The latest hiccup in the campaign message came Friday morning…

Candidate of Death

By Justin Katz | October 31, 2008 |

Just in case you’re pro-life and have somehow talked yourself into believing that Obama will be tolerable as president: When Barack Obama admitted to Joe the Plumber that he planned on spreading the wealth around, he didn’t mention that the tax dollars he will take from you will be used to pay for elective abortions…
