I just came from a grocery store in Southern California where signature gatherers are asking shoppers to sign "to prevent the politicians from gerrymandering." Of course it is no such thing, it is ...

This is a brief diary, but I just saw the posting on Politico - Mitch Daniels is not going to run. The reason given is his wife's concern. I can think of a few other possibilities of course - his ...

Yesterday’s diary dealt with obtaining and maintaining a sourdough starter, with a few odd recipes thrown in. Today’s diary gets to the heart of sourdough – sourdough bread. ...

I read them so you don't have to. And believe me, you don't want to, unless you have the same weird fascination I do for watching them rush toward complete meltdown. Their latest? Adulation for ...
|Michael Steele sounds nuts
I've just watched Stephanopoulis interviewing Michael Steele. Steele is claiming that projects funded by the government won't create jobs, because only business creates jobs. That because government ...
|Obama ad - I'm tearful
A short diary, but I just saw an Obama ad I hadn't seen before, and I thought it was great, an excellent "closer." It showed, as many ads do, pictures of Americans having a hard time - opening ...

On “This Week with George Stephanopolous” Carly Fiorino is arguing that any mention of John McCain’...

|McCain's cave and the Middle East

According to Max Blumenthal in the Nation , the pick came from Council ...

The second "celeb" ad cries out for a response, and to my mind, it should be based on McCain's lifelong disconnect from the financial problems of the average American family. It could come either ...

|What they think of Jews at Free Republic - I read this garbage so you don't have to...
I periodically wander over and peer at the cesspool that is Free Republic. I know it's a morbid fascination, like a trainwreck that I just can't look away from. Tonight someone ...

This is from an interview with CNS, published today. They were obviously looking for Huckabee to ...

Huckabee's opinion on gay marriage is out there, but we should also be publicizing Huckabee's opinions on heterosexual marriage. Specifically, what he believes about a women's role in a ...
