Kerry’s the Better Man (?)

In Sundays Raleigh News and Observer, they print editorials from around the world. As an off note, I am glad to see that they did not, at least this week, use the Guardian. I would like to think that a letter I wrote to them helped with that. But, they had an interesting one from […]

Great Googly Moogly!

Don’t forget to root for the Redskins today!

Sunday NC Quick Hits

North Carolina unemployment is down in most counties (bad news for Kerry and Ballentine, good for Bush and Easley) Latest Mason/Dixon shows Easley up 54 to 38 over Ballentine (625 RV) Edwards voted in Raleigh on Sat the 30th (after fixing his hair and makeup). He apparently jumped in line ahead of 70 others. Me, […]

Usama Dislikes Ta-Rez-Ah

If you haven’t caught the Saturday Night Live UBL skit, you missed a good one. Hopefully, someone will post the video today. However, Watcher of Weasels was nice enough to post the transcript. On the whole, if you ask my opinion, I don’t see much difference between the two candidates, although, and I will probably […]

Demoratic TV

Keep your eyes peeled for a new ad by the Demoratic National Windbags Committee, that includes blaming the current deficit on “tax cuts for the rich.” Has not made it onto the DNC website as of this time, but, BOY, did I laugh when I saw it this am. First, because it is absurd, and […]

Oh, Al Queda WAS behind 9/11

From Country Store: And now, perhaps, Reuters will stop referring to Al Qaeda as the group the Bush administration “claims” is responsible for 9/11. But I won’t hold my breath. I was thinking the same for the “9/11 was a Jewish/Mossad/CIA/Neocon/Bush plot” crowd, but he’s right – it won’t even be a speed bump for […]

It’s a Paris Halloween

Is it just me, or am I just being a prude? Seems as if dressing like Paris Hilton (sorry to any who got here through a search engine, no pictures or rumors) is all the rage. Many tv personalities have dressed up as Paris, including Kelly Ripa. Hmmm, let’s see. The woman (Paris, not Kelly), […]

Arafat’s Mystery Ailment

Seems like doctors do not really know what is really wrong with Palestinian terrorist leader Yasser Arafat. He is undergoing tests, which I hope are really painful, and include foul tasting medicines as a bonus indignity. Plus one of those really skimpy hospital gowns, just to add injury to insult. ME people are very modesty […]

Gimme Some Lovin’

Call me crazy, but I am so confident that W is going to win, that I have put this webpage together. Yes, I know there is still work to be done, and we cannot give up till it is in the bag, but, I just gotta believe. This song always makes me feel first rate. […]

Setting the Bar

Random thought before heading to work. Let’s suppose Kerry wins. His constant bloviation about everything being the direct responsibility of the POTUS really sets the bar high. What will Kerry do? Will he fly to Iraq to direct military actions, subplanting the field commanders? Will he personally hire people? Will he set the interest rate? […]
