The RNC’s New Microsite

By The Pajama Pundit | Related entries in RNC

The Republican National Committee has launched ObamaGetAway.com/ObamaDebtWatch, where you can find (and get embed code) for this dandy little debt ticker: Now, as I talked about earlier this week, I think that the line-of-attack that the President “is absent” because he’s on vacation is plain wrong: To equate vacation time (within reason) with work ethic […]

Paraphrasing Michael Steele: ‘Republicans Suck’

By The Pajama Pundit | Related entries in Republicans, RNC

Glenn Beck has a conversation with Michael Steele, and it’s a good one. I have to say that the decision to choose Steele as the Chairman of the RNC was definitely a good one. Looking past the obvious difference in the selection of Michael Steele (and the blustery-goodness of Glenn Beck), it is clear to […]

Steele Elected as RNC Chairman

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in News, Republicans, RNC

The Republican National Committee has elected Michael Steele as chairman. In addition to being the RNC’s first African American chairman, Steele’s moderate leanings also represent a break from recent Republican ideology. In his brief acceptance speech, Steele said he wants to expand the party: ”We’re going to say to friend and foe alike: We want […]

Is the Maverick Back?

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in McCain, RNC

I should have loved John McCain’s speech. He promised an administration focused on good ideas rather than partisan ideas. He promised to appoint Democrats and independents to his cabinet. He reminded us of all the special interests and entrenched powers he’s taken on while in Washington. He blasted his own party for its recent corruption. […]

Palin Makes Strong First Impression

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in McCain, Palin, RNC, Veep

The reviews of Sarah Palin’s big speech have been widely positive. I’m not deviating from that trend. I thought she did an incredible job. Content aside, she was personable, tough and not at all too small for the stage. There is still a lot of campaigning left, but I think we can safely say: Palin […]

RNC Theme: McCain’s Tough. And, oh, a Maverick.

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in McCain, RNC

Did you watch the first night of speeches at the Republican National Convention? President Bush made a fleeting appearance on a big screen. Fred Thompson needed a throat lozenge but did a decent job of emotionally delivering the story of John McCain’s POW years and got in a few good shots across the Obama/Biden bow. […]

RNC Scrambling to Get Back on Track

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in McCain, Palin, RNC

Now that Hurricane Gustav has, thankfully, turned out not to be nearly as devastating as previously feared, the Republican National Convention is scrambling to get back on track. Beginning today, the Republicans will return to the staunch partisanship for which political conventions are known and try to get back on message. The reorganized convention will […]

Violent Protests Disrupt RNC

By Alan Stewart Carl | Related entries in RNC

While the Republicans did what they could to be respectful as Hurricane Gustav hit Louisiana, protests at the RNC turned violent. In the midst of what was supposed to be a peaceful anti-war rally, self-identified anarchists as well as a group dubbing themselves Funk the War broke car and shop windows, tried to block streets […]
