CAN AMERICA WEATHER THE STORM?

John McCain and Barack Obama had their final debate last week during which McCain questioned Obama about Bill Ayers, a former member of a revolutionary organization known as the Weather Underground. McCain said “I don’t care about some washed up terrorist,” but immediately after the debate he began a robo-call campaign stating “Obama worked […]

A HISTORY OF VIOLENCE

She told me she killed someone.
She wanted off of work, so she told her boss that her aunt passed away. She got a week off of work with pay and got travel down to Florida to see her favorite rapper perform during Spring Break. That wasn’t all she got, because 2 weeks later, after returning […]

PARROT PALIN

Sarah Palin had one job last week: not to make her self look like any more of an idiot than she did during her interview with Katie Couric. If you didn’t see the series of interviews, there was one where Sarah couldn’t name the magazines or newspapers that she reads on the regular. […]

I approached her and we had a great conversation walking through the grocery store shopping together. At the checkout line we exchanged numbers, I couldn’t wait to call her later that […]

LET HIM EAT CAKE

This year the DNC did exactly what it was designed to do, unite the party, […]

BARACK OBAMA:
A NEW DRUM MAJOR

40 years ago, on Feb. 9th 1968 Dr. Martin Luther King, preached what might be considered his own eulogy. It was called “A Drum Major’s Instinct.” In it, he described how he envisioned his funeral. I first heard this shortly after I touched the very cart they used to carry his casket through […]
