A Sincere ‘Thanks’ To The Tea Party

A Sincere ‘Thanks’ To The Tea Party

In my youth, the conservative wing of the Republican party was dominated by the likes of Everett Dirksen, Barry Goldwater, Richard Viguerie and Ronald Reagan. There are two indisputable facts about these four men: One, that they were all proud conservatives during their time, and two, by today’s standards, not one of them would be recognized as conservative enough to satisfy the Tea Party.

Why Romney Could Pick Christie as His Running Mate

Why Romney Could Pick Christie as His Running Mate

Okay, obviously the gun is being jumped by calling Romney as the GOP winner before the New Hampshire primaries, the Iowa Caucuses, and the last bevy of debates.

They’re Cuckoo for Christie in GOP Land

They’re Cuckoo for Christie in GOP Land

Looking at the Republican Party these last couple of months, it’s becoming all too obvious that the powers that be are loaded with it.There is great concern within the Grand Old Party over the viability of the current crop of candidates vying for the nomination and the chance to dethrone emperor Obama from the Kremlin (er, White House) next year. Hence the ‘Draft Christie’ movement among the, how should I say it, less enthusiastic contingent of the faithful and the hopeful.

Chris Christie: The Man Who Sits Across from Skinny

Who would have thought that Gov. Chris Christie’s weight would become an issue if he decided to run for president? Apparently, that aspect of politics must seem unimaginable to some, but it seems quite in line with the usual ‘running of the bulls’ that is to be expected within the realm of American politics, and the media scrutiny that it endures on a regular basis.

In a New York State of Mind

Everyone is happy over New York allowing gay marriage, but all of you had better repent. I just talked to Rodney the Republican Rabbi, and he said that the ghost of gay marriage past, the ghost of gay marriage present, and the ghost of gay marriage future are all going to find your children and turn every first born gay.
