I Thought Romney Was the Mormon

Posted by Mike on December 14, 2006

Amazingly enough, I just learned something while watching Screwball with Screwball. Pat Buchanan mentioned that three of the leading Republican Presidential candidates have eight wives among them. Both Rudy Giuliani and Newt Gingrich have been married three times. John McCain has been married twice. Mitt Romney, the Mormon currently in fourth place, is still married to his first wife of 37 years.

For the record, the host Mark Levin refers to as Screwball was not hosting.

Obama’s a Wimp?

Posted by Ryan on December 14, 2006

So it seems that everyone’s favorite inexperienced potential fluff candidate for 2008, Barak Hussein Obama, is a wimp.  Rush reported that Mr. Hussein Obama was upset at Maureen Dowd’s slight about his ears and the fact that his handlers have hidden his middle name for all this time.  If he whines about his name, of all things, what about the substance of his policy positions when they are attacked?  His candidacy is in trouble already if these are the things that get to him.

The Morbitity of the Drive-by Media

Posted by Sal on December 14, 2006

I wasn’t going to post on this subject, but the coverage this morning warrants it at this point.  I am frankly disgusted with the drive-by media, and this time it’s because of their coverage of a Democrat.  Sen. Tim Johnson, D-SD, was hospitalized with a severe condition involving the enlarging of arteries in his brain.  He underwent surgery yesterday, and is currently listed in critical condition.  The drive-by media is devoting much of their coverage to the fact that a vacancy in the Senate by Sen. Johnson would shift the balance of power back to the GOP.  Now, while I do disagree with Sen. Johnson on most issues, I do not wish him ill and hope that he has a speedy recovery.  The media coverage of this is in such poor taste.  Human life is too precious, too important to place politics over someone’s life.  The discussion of the balance of power at this point is callous and should be avoided.  Tim Johnson is a respected leader in South Dakota, a father and husband, who has a son in the military.  All should pray for a speedy recovery and his return to the Senate, and that God be with him and his family during this most difficult time.
