The Republicans Are History

There is an unspoken doom in a piece from this week’s issue of the New Yorker on the question of whether Texas will turn blue—if demographic change in America means that the Republicans can no longer get their presidential candidates elected. Every week this magazine churns out thousands of words on this subject for upper middle class liberals who want to understand Republicans without actually talking with them, and this piece is little different except for the way it ballets, on its tippy-toes, around one single basic inevitable conclusion:


Too Much Faith in Numbers

Kendrick Meek is the Florida Democratic party’s candidate for US Senate. I didn’t vote for him, but now it’s time to close ranks and take the fight to both Charlie “Opportunist” Crist and the GOP’s Marco Rubio. As much as I like to see confidence, though, perhaps Meek’s campaign manager, Abe Dyk, is bit fixated with electoral math.

CRIST CANNOT WIN

The math does not add up for Florida’s elected Republican Governor.

With universal name recognition, Charlie Crist abandoned his Republican primary fight against Marco Rubio. Only 39% of Democrats supported Crist at a time when Kendrick was completely unknown beyond his district, a number that will be a high-water mark for him running against a Real Democrat.


Floridian Dems Behaving Badly

The infamous Democratic circular firing squad is alive and well. MoJo asks, Can the race for the Democratic Senate nomination in Florida get any dirtier? According to Orlando Sentinel, neither candidate has comported himself well.

In the last three months, they’ve engaged in the equivalent of daily knife fights, trying to shred each other with a series of allegations that have ranged from silly to spot-on. Civility is the biggest casualty, as the candidates’ genuine disdain for one another has become apparent.


A Pox on Both Hacks

Losers Regardless of the OutcomePutative Democratic party nominees for the U.S. Senate from Florida, Kendrick Meek and Jeff Greene are piling up a record of a whole lot of nonsense, even though Greene seems to be more adept at dishing out dirt.


This SemDem Voted

Seminole County Florida Democratic Party logoI just finished filling out my absentee ballot for the Seminole County, Florida Democratic primary election. Aside from a queasiness due to a bit of alienation – honestly, I’ve “lived” in Sanford, Florida for days as opposed to years in Maryland – and frustration borne of a dearth of online information – who knows about a circuit judge’s platform? – I’m sure I just wasted 30 minutes I could have spent talking to the dog.

That’s a bit harsh, I’ll admit. Still, I wonder how many other “Seminolean” – as opposed to the real Seminoles – Democrats, or SemDem’s, will bother to vote on August 24.


The Truth about Tax Cuts and Deficits (Video)

It’s a re day when The Economist and Rachel Maddow agree. But, tax cuts swell the Federal budget deficit.


Most Americans Oppose Regime Change in North Korea

TMH’s R. Elgin is clearly more impressed than I am with the occult powers of the American electorate, to see the future of the Korean peninsula. But, he missed what the far less bellicose message in that poll is.


At this point, Americans would support assistance to South Korea in the event of a war, but are clearly not in favour of an invasion to remove the communist regime.


Obama blames swine flu on George Bush

President Barack Obama today placed blame for the outbreak of the Swine Flu on the previous administration of George W. Bush.In a quickly called press conference Obama claimed that it was no coincidence that scientists believe the Swine Flu made its way into America over the Texas border.Speaking without the aid of a teleprompter the president said, "There has been a great deal of, uhmm,

The handshake and the bow: It just won't die

More handshake nonsense --now coming from the upper echelon of the Republican party. With America's former top dick, Vice President Cheney, tossing in his three bits during an interview with Sean "insanity" Hannity.Dicky boy said, “...you have to be very careful. The world outside there, both our friends and our foes, will be quick to take advantage of a situation if they think they're dealing

Conservatives vs. Liberals: The Greatest Show on Earth

While the Federal Reserve in Washington and the Central Bank in London continue their decades-old (for the Brits centuries-old) game of fleecing the world, we do at least have the consolation of some fine entertainment on the main stage in America.Watching the Anglo-based alchemists, dressed as "conservatives" and "liberals", with their newly appointed, melanin-rich-middle-man, Barack Obama, and
