Obscene Profiteering

Exxon just handed the Republicans their Sister Soldjah moment. Exxon is reporting mind boggling record profits in a year where we the people have had to deal with mind boggling record gas prices. IRVING, Texas – Exxon Mobil Corp. posted record profits for any U.S. company on Monday — $10.71 billion for the fourth quarter […]

Carnival Of The Chillin’ – Alito

On the eve of Alito’s confirmation to the US Supreme Court we wanted to hear from members of the Coalition of the Chillin’ on what the Gang of 14 Agreement meant as we look back to all that has transpired since. I think it is fair to say the filibuster-nuclear option debate has subsided significantly […]

Alito’s Day

I am going to keep this short, mainly because there is not a lot to say. The Democrats have been performing their usual trick of misleading bravado since the Gang of 14 agreement last spring.

Iran Is Insulting To Humankind

Published by under All General Discussions

Iran is absolutely out of control. What better way to demonstrate maturity and self control regarding nuclear power than to put on a Holocaust conference highlighting ignorance, denial and irresponsibility: Leaders in Germany and Britain have sharply criticized the announcement of the conference and plans to invite notorious Holocaust deniers as a further example of […]

ABC Anchor Injured In Bombing

Drudge has word that ABC anchor Bob Woodruff and his camerman were seriously injured by an IED in Iraq. Our prayers go out to these folks, as they have for all fighting in Iraq. Journalists do perform brave and selfless acts, that is clear.

2006 Senate

I went out on a limb last summer and predicted a Rep pick up of 3 seats. Alexander McClure at Polipundit provides me some confidence in my predictions: A new Rasmussen Poll has the Minnesota Senate race a near-tie between Klobuchar and Kennedy. This of course means that the GOP has an excellent shot of […]
