On the Left: The most important part of our jobs as United States Senators is to create jobs in our states. That is especially true in times like these, when so many are reeling from so much economic pain – Harry Reid and on the Right: in my view it’s an insult to the millions […]

I refuse to call it the Ground Zero mosque because, well, it’s not at Ground Zero. It’s close, but it’s not at the site…which I think most people who opposed it think it is. But here’s the thing…looks like it’s moving to another part of the city. From Haaretz: After weeks of heated debate over […]

By Solomon Kleinsmith | Related entries in Bad Decisions, California, Dumb Things Said By Smart People, Independents, Partisan Nonsense, Politics

I wont be nearly the first person to be writing about California’s Proposition 14. I’m coming late into the game, having only listened to the vague positive talking points of the California Independent Voter Network (CAIVN), and their allies, who have talked this proposition up. But I began to see some dissent, and took at […]

Coffee Party not for Indepedents and Moderates

By Solomon Kleinsmith | Related entries in Bipartisan, General Politics, Independents, Partisan Nonsense, Politics, tea party

For some people, the development of the new Coffee Party USA organization seemed like a godsend in response to the more extreme elements in the Tea Party movement. At first I thought that this could be the grassroots movement I’d been waiting for – one that actually included moderates independents, and actively worked across ideological […]

Tea Party Candidate Slams Obama’s Teleprompters … While Reading Off Of Teleprompters

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Barack, Conservatives, Obama, Partisan Nonsense, Republicans, tea party, Video

He did it while standing in front of two easily visible teleprompters. It was […]

Whilst walking the dog this rainy evening, I happened upon an illuminated, inflatable lawn ornament of the Halloween variety. These decorations are an easy, relatively inexpensive way to acknowledge the holiday. They require little or no thought beyond which one to buy and where to buy it.

Chicago Loses, Conservatives Rejoice

By The Pajama Pundit | Related entries in Chicago, News, Partisan Nonsense, Tweets

Something has been bugging me all weekend. I’ve never been to Chicago. From what friends and family have told me, The Windy City is indeed a great place. There is lots to see and do. But you wouldn’t be told that if you asked any number of right-wing-talking-heads. To these folks, Chicago is a cesspool […]
