John Kerry’s a Dork

Posted by Ryan on October 31, 2006

(And a few other words that are not appropriate for this website.)

After trashing the troops [again] he offers a non-apology about his statement and blames Bush for the whole to-do. McCain, Snow, Hannity and others have already chimed in as this story develops to help further contrast the Republican philosophy of victory through persistence and adaptation, and the Democrat philosophy that we cut and run.

Nothing frightens me more this Halloween than the prospect that this guy will be in the majority party in 8 days. A party who has members that agree with him.

The New York Slimes has decided not to endorse any Republicans for the first time in over 30 years. I was shocked to learn they ever had!

Changing Tide?

Posted by Sal on October 31, 2006

Whether or not he ends up victorious, it is possible that the candidacy of Lt. Governor Michael Steele for the U.S. Senate may end up marking the beginning of a political shift in this country. Today, six prominent Maryland African American democrats endorsed Michael Steele for the U.S. Senate, stating that the Democratic party was taking the Black community for granted. The Democrats always count on the black vote, yet:

  • They have only elected two Black Senators in the history of their party (Carol Moseley Braun and Barack Obama), while the Republicans have elected three (Hiram Rhodes Revels, Blanche K. Bruce, and Edward W. Brooke), and if Michael Steele wins, four.
  • They are at odds with Black voters on one of the most important issues to Blacks, that of education
  • They are at odds on many moral issues that are important to African American Christians.
  • They had a chance to nominate an African American to oppose Michael Steele, but didn’t.

It is time the African American community came home to the party of their roots, the Party that abolished slavery, and the party that wants to give them the limitless opportunities that this country can offer them.
