Flaming Out, Draft Walker Campaign tries to Jump on Slightly Less Flaming Buddy Roemer Campaign

Out of three originally scheduled ballots, there is only one ballot left in the Americans Elect presidential primary process, because no candidate to date has qualified. The privatize-social-security draft candidate David Walker is painfully far behind. In order to get on the Americans Elect ballot, the rules stipulate a candidate must obtain 1,000 votes of [...]

By what standards will we judge Americans Elect?

Americans Elect is a Section 527 political corporation that began life earlier this year as the “Unity 12 task force,” a resurrection of the old Unity08 that declared its intention to:

1. Hold an online nomination to 2. Select a ticket for President and Vice President of the United States, 3. One of whom would [...]

Americans Elect Provides 1st Public Statement of its Presidential Goals, Raising Questions

The group formerly known as Unity08 and briefly renamed the Unity12 Task Force has resurfaced as Americans Elect. Until this week, Americans Elect had remained a private Section 527 organization, registered with the IRS and issuing a variety of mission statements.

Unity12 Changes its Name and its Goals, Dropping BiPartisanship

In an official filing with the IRS this Monday afternoon, the Unity12 Task Force officially changed its name to Americans Elect.

150,000 dollars of clothes isn't enough for Sarah Palin

This week, just as the story about her use of donors’ money to buy clothes for herself was breaking, Sarah Palin sent an assistant out to buy yet another new suit for Palin to wear at a campaign rally. [...]

Palinism of the Day: Vice Presenatorident

KUSA NEWS: Governor, we’ve been trying to engage some local grade schoolers for the last few elections. We do a feature called “Questions from the Third Grade.”

Sarah Palin: Good.

KUSA: Brandon Garcia wants to know, “What does the Vice President do?”

Palin: Oh, that’s something that Piper would ask me, as a second grader, [...]

Sarah Palin Already Looking For Post-Election Path

Joseph Biden isn’t looking for something to do after Election Day. He knows what he plans to do – preparing to become Vice President. [...]

Sarah Palin the Lawbreaker – A Real Maverick!

More likely, Palin will blame the insiders. The commission that wrote the report concluding that Sarah Palin has engaged in illegal abuse of power as Governor of Alaska was bipartisan, after all. It’s not very maverick of them to be so bipartisan, is it? [...]

Remove Palin Blank

Because I oppose John McCain, and not just Sarah Palin, I do not want McCain to remove Sarah Palin from the Republican White House ticket. McCain chose Palin, and I think that she reflects his irresponsible pandering to incompetent extremism very well. [...]
