By The Way, Terrorists ARE Being Held In US

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Colorado, Kansas, Terrorism

The logic of how we’ve handled terrorism and terrorists in the post 9/11 world has always been flawed, but one of the more obviously incorrect arguments has been the claim that we don’t want these people serving time on American soil. Why? Not sure really. We just don’t. They’re incredibly, crazy dangerous for some reason […]

And much like California, they may have to limit their employees from coming to work because they might not be able to meet payroll. In fact, it’s almost a certainty that they’ll have to make serious cutbacks immediately. And this was a crisis that is completely out of the control of any Governor’s control. Still, […]

More delicious crazy… A Wichita, Kansas preacher says he will not remove a message on his church sign that says President-Elect Barack Obama is a Muslim. The sign is staying up despite the fact that Obama is a Christian. At least it’s not in Missouri, but it’s close enough to be embarrassing. Tweet

Well how about that! I wrote about just this topic a couple days ago when I noticed Sebelius gave an interview and the backdrop behind her was San Francisco. “What could she be doing there?” I asked myself.

That ain’t Kansas…it’s San Francisco. […]

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Huckabee, Kansas, McCain

Now this is interesting because what it signals is that GOP voters aren’t automatically going to fall in line with Super Tuesday results. And so Huckabee is sticking in there, gaining delegates and maybe ensuring that he gets the VP spot. From TPM Election Central: In what will likely be taken as a sign of […]
