Your diva will illustrate the healthcare mandate rift, via popular TV characters.

Something occured to me as I watched the debate last night, during the 16 full minutes in which our 2 candidates accused each other of being the bigger universal coverage hater and yanker outer of the IVs of cancer-stricken Girl Scouts.  Basically, their plans are about 95% similar but there is a crucial difference:  Hillary wants to mandate […]

Don’t be hatin’ on my plagiarizing unpatriotic Obama cult, yo.

Great night so far, with Barack taking Wisconsin by double digits.   A few thoughts as I sip red wine and watch the speeches on the ‘SPAN. It was, I admit, a clever swipe by the Clinton campaign at Barack for his unattributed borrowing of a riff by Deval Patrick in his WI Jefferson Jackson speech.  I’m pretty […]

Proud Democrats, Grandparents, and Disenfranchised Independents

We’ve said it before, this is an exciting time in politics. No matter who wins the Democratic nominee, I’m proud of the intelligent and savvy candidates we’ve seen over the last year. Yep, it’s a proud time for us Democrats, especially compared to our opposition – McCain and Muckety Muckabee (you can have a lot of fun […]
