Howdy, folks, and welcome to my new blog. I'm going to spend the next four years looking at the politicial horizon in what will hopefully be a witty, informative manner. I'm a conservative, so I won't insult your intelligence by pretending to be unbiased, but I will try to be fair to both sides (whenever it suits me). I'm also going to be covering general issues that I think reflect on the electorate and where I think it will be heading.
So, in the next few weeks, as I flesh this out, look for profiles of promising candidates from both sides and unexpectedly brilliant analysis that will result is mass hilarity and much head-scratching and pondering, I hope.
Let's kick things off on this inaugural post with a look at a Sunday talking head show, shall we?
Is is just me or has CBS been replaced with a crude parody of a network? We all know by now about Rathergate, but Bob Schieffer (rumored as a Rather replacement, despite his advanced age, albeit probably not for long) is not much of an improvement. Today he just went after Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist, who was very impressive in not getting steamrolled. The issue was the stalling of the not-quite-dead Intelligence Reform bill by conservative House Republicans. Frist made it clear that there was not a guarantee of a bill passing "unless it's done right." (Done right in this case meaning resolving the budgetary issues with the Pentagon and probably removing immigration matters from the bill entirely). David Brooks (a.k.a. the only possible reason to still read the New York Times) made an appearance and finally succeeded in calming Schieffer down.
More to come later today, including a look at race and the liberal mindset.
