This morning, I called the National Park Service — twice — for information on obtaining a permit for a demonstration at the Washington, DC Inauguration Parade on January 20, 2009. On multiple points, the information I obtained today was quite different than the information I’d received earlier from people at the very same number. I [...]
The NY Times Dashboard seems to most quickly post election results (tell me if you find one that’s faster). It also has a neat tab that tracks the various news networks’ callings of various states.
When I saw Mitt Romney speak to a small group of the Republican faithful in Columbus, Ohio today, he didn’t shy away from making a bold election prediction:
I think Ohio’s going to surprise a lot of people tomorrow by delivering the state for John McCain.
I hear there’s a million people who’re gonna gather [...]
I’m hoping Barack Obama will win, but preparing this emergency McCain victory response kit just in case. [...]
Something’s coming. I don’t know what it is. Will it be great?
There will be a presidential election in three days, and a new direction for our country will be chosen. There’s lots of talk of “Change,” and of “Change You Can Believe In.” What is this change of which I hear people speak? What’s [...]

Sowell highlights Barack Obama’s peripheral role in the “Bridge to Nowhere” but neglects Sarah Palin’s central role in the same affair. Sowell contends that Obama is different from “liberal left politicians” only in “his rhetoric,” completely ignoring Obama’s [...]
As I noted yesterday, since Barack Obama knifed the Constitution in the back with his pro-FISA flip flop, people have been writing to me with advice about how I should switch my vote to Bob Barr for President. See, they tell me, Bob Barr is the Libertarian Party candidate, and so he will be a [...]
Inside operators within the beltway of Washington, DC love to tell the rest of us how it has to be, and how anybody who thinks otherwise is just naive and wouldn’t understand. The next time you hear some DC insider telling you how it has to be, remember this:
Sam Waterston made a speech in [...]
What’s Hillary Clinton going to do to turn things around? Keep scheduling speaking events for Jeremiah Wright like she did last week? Note to Clinton supporters: That didn’t work. Voters are tired of that non-story. [...]
