An Open Letter to Barack Obama
April 04, 2008
Dear Sen. Obama,
I thought it was pretty fascinating how you threw radio host Don Imus under the wheels of the bus by promising never to re-appear on his radio show after his "nappy-headed ho's" comment got him fired from his radio gig.
Now that liberal radio host Randi Rhodes has been suspended for her filthy tirade against Sen. Hillary Clinton and Geraldine Ferraro, will you make the same pledge about HER radio show?
Has anyone asked you yet?
Randi Rhodes is one of the true "stars" of Air America. While others have come and gone, she has been a mainstay of the so-called liberal talk radio network. When she appeared before a gathering in San Francisco, she let loose with quite the little tirade about Hillary. Your supporter, Sen. Obama, called Hillary "a f***ing whore" --- repeatedly -- and said the same about Hillary supporter Geraldine Ferraro.
I'm curious, Sen. Obama: is "f***ing whore" as bad as "nappy headed ho's?" When one of your filthy sycophants like her says stuff like this, will you be sure to promise to never appear on her radio show again?
Or will that get you in trouble with your rabid base?
Conservatives and Eliot Spitzer
March 11, 2008
To all my fellow conservatives, I have a six-word warning before you get too excited or satisfied over Eliot Spitzer's downfall: Mark-Foley-Larry-Craig-David-Vitter.
There's actually nothing political about a man's decision to ruin his life, destroy his family, and obliterate his reputation the way Spitzer has done. And while he had very few fans -- I'm one of many who despised the way he attacked corporate executives for their compensation and couldn't believe his attempts to give driver's licenses to illegals, among other things -- the anguished look on his wife's face should be a reminder that there are some very real victims in this tale.
It has been remarkable to hear some like-minded callers to my radio show today try and justify the various trysts committed by Republicans while justifiably condemning Spitzer's alliance with prostitutes. Callers have said things like, "Well, Mark Foley didn't get arrested for anything" (as if writing dirty emails to young boys is okay); "David Vitter didn't get arrested for being on the D.C. Madame's phone list" (the statute of limitations had run out); "Larry Craig didn't actually have sex with anyone in the restroom" (I'm actually speechless over that one).
Let's just let Spitzer get what's coming to him. He'll fade away, as he should, and we'll move on. But we'd better be careful over too much gloating. Inappropriate sexual trysts aren't limited to Democrats.
I Told Ya So...
March 05, 2008
As I brilliantly predicted, Hillary took Texas -- and Ohioans decided to go for her as well. Throw in Rhode Island and you have a big night for Madame Hillary.
We should know better than to ever count out a Clinton in a campaign.
The lesson learned from her big night is that going negative, sadly, works. Pundits say she really "found her sea legs" and her campaign "really hit its stride" the past few weeks. Translation: she decided to start playing hardball. NAFTA, the empty Obama bromides, it was all on the table for her -- and it paid off handsomely.
Let's face it, watching the Democrats in total turmoil is fun for a righty like me. Hopefully, Republicans who continue to whine and pout and fret about McCain's candidacy will be drowned out by common-sense Republicans who realize that while Sen. McCain might not have been our first choice, now he's the only choice. No Republican worth his or her salt really wants to turn over the keys to the White House to a radical leftist.
So the wild ride continues.
