America Votes

November 7, 2012 by


By Andrew Bolt ~ TonyfromOz prefaces….. While you in the U.S. are right on top of this tonight especially, your election has been bigger news here in Australia than it has ever been before. Again, nearly all the coverage has been from the National Broadcaster, the (Australian) ABC, and as in the U.S. this branch […]

Democracy Rising PA – Be An Active Part Of An Honest Election

October 31, 2012 by


By Tim Potts ~ There are two parts to an honest election. One is preventing ineligible people from voting. That’s why PA has a new voter ID law, even though it won’t take full effect until 2013 and even though voter impersonation is already a crime. The other part of an honest election is making […]

A Most Obnoxious Biden

October 13, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ The Biden-Ryan debate will be the subject of millions of words written and spoken, but, if remembered at all will likely be remembered for Vice President Biden’s obnoxious behavior. One was reminded of the Bush-Gore debate of 2000, but Biden’s behavior went beyond Gore’s boorish sighing and pacing. Those with any […]

The Veep Stakes

July 10, 2012 by


By Alan Caruba ~ Having secured enough of the Republican delegates to their forthcoming convention, Mitt Romney has smoothly and effectively locked up the nomination to oppose Barack Obama. It is easy to forget how many candidates he had to defeat in primaries around the nation. Dick Morris, a Fox News political analyst, is on […]

2012 Will Be the Tea Party Election Year

I think that 2012 will be known as the year the Tea Party movement changed the future of America away from its entrenched socialist […]

I’m Outta Here

By Alan Caruba ~ Those who follow politics more intently than I will no doubt be able to identify why, specifically, various incumbent Senators and Representatives have decided not to run for office in the 2012 elections, but as of this writing 43 incumbents have made it known they will not seek reelection. Among the […]

Sarah Palin’s Media Mockery Tour

June 2, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba Watching the mobs of media folk chasing Sarah Palin’s bus resembles paparazzi chasing Lindsay Lohan more than anything related to serious politics in America. But, hey, if we were truly serious about politics, would we have elected Obama and Biden, or any of the other Leftwing loonies in Congress? Fox News anchorette, […]

Republican Russian Roulette

May 24, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba I have a friend who thinks the ghost of Bob Dole is stalking the Republican Party and Dole isn’t even dead! What he means, of course, is that, at this point, the present batch of candidates are not that inspiring. The Party needs to articulate a distinct, conservative agenda and have the guts to […]

We Elect Politicians, Not Saints

May 16, 2011 by


By Alan Caruba It’s always a good idea at the beginning of the long political marathon that leads to Election Day to remind ourselves that we are electing a politician, not a saint. It’s also a good idea to keep firmly in mind that everyone we do elect is a human being with all the […]
