The Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial in Washington D.C.

Proudly Still Going to the MLK Memorial

The quote on the Stone of Hope reads, ‘I was a drum major for justice, peace and righteousness.’ The actual quote in its entirety, as spoken by Dr. King during one of his sermons in 1968 was, ‘If you want to say that I was a drum major, say that I was a drum major for justice. Say that I was a drum major for peace. I was a drum major for righteousness. And all of the other shallow things will not matter.’

Rick Perry’s ‘Galileo Moment’

Rick Perry’s ‘Galileo Moment’

Rick Perry sure had a lot to say during the GOP Debate on Wednesday night. He called Social Security ‘a monstrous lie,’ stood proudly by his ‘pro-life’ execution record, and talked about the jobs he created using federal funds. But there was another moment that shouldn’t be overlooked from last night. I have dubbed this, Rick Perry’s ‘Galileo Moment.’

Rick Perry and the Power of Stupid

Rick Perry and the Power of Stupid

Up until three weeks ago, the race for pole position amongst the Republicans candidates was firmly in the hands of Mitt Romney. Then Governor Perry of Texas threw his Stetson in the ring, and suddenly Mitt Romney is trailing Perry by two to one in the latest polling. How can that be? The guy looks, acts and talks like George W. Bush 2.0, minus the smarts.

Mitt Romney Strikes Out On The Facts

It seems that Rick Perry has stollen the thunder from dear ole Mitt. Even though he is a complete clone of George W.

Since Perry is now declared the major conservative and Jon Huntsman has the moderate crown on, Mitt Romney doesn’t know what to do.
