Ladies and gentlemen, I call your attention to the key passage in unrepentant Climate Change Republican John McCain’s Senate floor statement yesterday on cap-and-trade. Note well (hat tip: Edward John Craig/Planet Gore): Let me say to my colleagues, I am proud of my record on climate change. I have been all over the world, and […]
I’ve already made clear: John McCain is the problem with the GOP. And he’s trying to install his mini-mes as congressional candidates across the country. Yesterday, Mitt Romney lined up with He That Ails the GOP: Romney, the former Governor of Massachusetts released a statement today, saying it would be “hard to imagine the United […]
In critiquing Glenn Beck’s CPAC speech taking the Republican Party to task for failing to own up to its Big Government lapses, Bill Bennett cites various Republicans who have admitted the party’s culpability. But see if you can spot the glaring problem with his defense of the GOP: From Jim DeMint to Tom Coburn to […]
Scroll for updates… You’ve got to be freaking kidding me. I mean, really. Come on: As former Rep. J.D. Hayworth prepares to officially enter the Republican primary race against incumbent Sen. John McCain, he probably had better not count on any support from FreedomWorks, the national conservative group closely associated with the Tea Party movement. […]
Supreme Court decimates McCain-Feingold campaign finance law; Update: Citizens United reacts to victory
Many of you may remember a scathing documentary by Citizens United about Hillary Clinton from 2007. I blogged about it at the time here. The film became the center of a huge legal battle over the free-speech-stifling McCain-Feingold campaign finance scheme. Parts of the law were struck down by the Supreme Court when the Wisconsin […]
I said it last month and it bears repeating: Beware the Climate Change Republicans. Are you ready for the latest signs of capitulation by GOP global warming preacher Sen. John McCain and company? 1) Senate Dems opening to nuclear as a path to GOP support, 60 votes Key Senate Democrats signaled yesterday they are willing […]
“AMC, you magnificent channel!”
You know what’s wrong with Meghan McCain? It’s not her weight. It’s not her voice. It’s not her looks. She’s a beautiful young girl with TV-friendly poise and natural charm. The trouble with Meghan McCain is that, like her father, she has no fixed ideological principles — conservative, liberal, or otherwise. She seems to have […]
Just between “friends.”
John McCain wants your money. This solicitation is landing in many readers’ e-mail boxes: My Friend, In the time since the 2008 presidential campaign ended I have had a chance to reflect on many things. And as I said on election night, I truly cannot adequately express how indebted I am to you, my entire […]
Left and lefter: The One and The Other One vow to “fix up the country;” Plus: Bush’s parting gift to Obama
Watch your wallets.
Mandate for change.
Not your friend.
He is the change he’s been waiting for…
A heartbeat away… My syndicated column today takes you through a tour of all the latest Joe Biden gaffes that aren’t getting replayed endlessly on the nightly news and comedy shows. I said yesterday that the McCain camp ought to toss the “erratic” label right back in Joe Biden’s face and defuse that rhetorical bomb. […]
Gravitas. The media’s in a tizzy over Colin Powell’s Meet the Press endorsement of Barack Obama this morning. It’s not a surprise to anyone who’s paid attention to his pro-Obama murmurings over the last four months. How will people outside the Beltway bubble respond? Yawn. Here’s the vid: Powell’s embrace of Barack Obama is a […]
No, there weren’t any knockout punches. But John McCain was still standing at the end of the night — doubts about his fortitude adequately quelled — and Barack Obama ought to be wiping the smirk he borrowed from Joe Biden off his face. Joe Wurzelbacher the Plumber was a heaven-sent gift for the McCain campaign, […]
It begins at 9pm Eastern. Liberal Beltway fixture Bob Schieffer moderates. I noted in 2004 that he asked a question about immigration during one of the 2004 debates. Wouldn’t it be novel if the subject finally came up tonight? Not that the La Raza twins would differ much. I’m not the only one who wants […]

Update…here’s the vid via Allah… I am away from my office, so haven’t seen the video of this yet. But several readers are reporting on a frustrating exchange John McCain had with a passionate supporter in Waukesha, Wisconsin. McCain gets a softball — and bungles again. Banging. Head. Against. Wall. Commenter nyc123me: CNNlive online covering […]
Dude, where’s your bailout?
Responding to the insipid last question of the debate ( “What don’t you know and how will you learn it?”) and Obama’s bloviating answer, reader Mike G. e-mails: “The first part of McCain’s answer should have been: ‘Well one thing I don’t know is what the hell he just said and frankly, I’m OK with […]
