Today’s article from the LA times about dishonest campaigning is a good example of the mainstream news media attempting to put balance on a story that really isn’t balanced. The article’s generic title and general discussion of dishonesty in campaigns imply that both the Obama and McCain campaigns are stretching the truth. But when you […]

In this clip from the Daily Show, Jon Stewart nails the current Republican hypocrisy in a way no one else can.
Barack Obama’s opponents have tried to paint him as an elitist who is out of touch with “regular Americans.” They didn’t know just how out of touch a presidential candidate could be, but it turns out they had the wrong man. John McCain is so well off that he apparently can’t remember how many houses […]
This clip from The Daily Show is simultaneously hilarious and right on the mark. How did we reach a point where a comedy news show is a better purveyor of the news then the news stations themselves?
A recent CNN/Opinion Research Corp. poll indicates that 17% of Clinton supporters will vote for McCain if Obama doesn’t select her as his running mate. And an additional 22% would refuse to vote for Obama.

I’m pleased to announce that I will be attending the Colorado State Democratic Convention in Colorado Springs next weekend (May 17) as a delegate for Hillary Clinton. Although I’m skeptical of Clinton’s chances of gaining the nomination, I feel morally obligated as an official Clinton delegate to cast my vote for her. In truth, I […]
“I don’t belong to any organized party. I’m a Democrat,”
- Will Rogers
After attending the El Paso County Democratic Convention the weekend before last, I was feeling a bit like Will Rogers. After arriving promptly at 8 AM I stood in line outside waiting to register for two hours. And this wasn’t Southern California temperature – […]
A few weeks ago, I wrote about my theory that Hillary Clinton performs worse in caucuses, which require a public display of support, than in primaries, in which voting is private. The recent results from Super Tuesday corroborate this theory far more strikingly than I would have predicted. Of the 22 states in play for […]
