Britney Ad Reaction

“diminishes John McCain.” “enough.” “childish.” “this tomfoolery needs to stop.” Pro-Obama liberal blogger? Nope. Senator McCain’s close friend and former campaign advisor John Weaver.

Messianic

Another word used on cable news this morning to describe Senator Obama — and obviously not for the first time — was “messianic.” The barbecue media is all over this arrogant, cocky, presumptuous, hubristic narrative and I’m wondering where they … Continue reading
