Photos from the McCain Fundraiser Protest

Sep
08

Good weather seems to have eluded the arrival of GOP Presidential Candidate John McCain during his fundraiser held today at the Hilton.

Across the street, the rain didn't diminish any of the spirit of us Chicagoans who came to give him a proper reception. The signs said "Bush McCain - More of the Same" and that's pretty much what we chanted to media and passers-by alike for close to an hour.

The ever eloquent William McNary from Citizen Action was there to express to the media probably what all of us felt: McCain is bad news for America.

Fannie/Freddie: Happily Afloat Through Debt

Sep

I dunno, I keep hearing that Fannie/Freddie were ways the Chinese et al. could funnel money back to us so we could buy more goods from them.

That's pretty much the message of the segment on today's Morning Edition entitled, "U.S.-China Cash Flow Depends On Fannie, Freddie".

That's one way of looking at it.

Obama's Accomplishments

Sep

Somebody sent me an email asking about Obama's "Actual Accomplishments'. Here's what I wrote:

Well, first off he was raised by a single mother and wound up a Harvard graduate and member of the U.S. Senate. People don't realize how difficult an accomplishment this is. We've got a guy who actually made it based entirely on ability alone. No silver spoon (or heiress wife) required.

Thoughts on McCain's Convention Speech: Total Snoozer

Sep
05

Unstable/Unable '08 Total snoozer. Even as someone in the opposition, I'm completely dissatisfied.

It seemed like a chore -- something he had to get through rather than a pivotal moment in the campaign to elect the next president of the United States.

If it were a movie, we'd all be asking for our money back.

On the bright side, at least we won't be hearing from the RNC for another four years!

McCain's gift to America.

UPDATE: Having listened to her speech rant, I'd say she sounds like Dick Cheney Jr. -- and that's just about the last thing we need in America.

Where's the Conflict Narrative on the RNC from the MSM?

Aug
31

So last week, we were treated to an incessant narrative from the MSM of DNC conflict and disunity. There was Hillary, Bill, the Pumas -- you name it.

None of this turned out to be true. It was a complete distortion of reality.

Nonetheless, by this standard we ought to be seeing an equivalent deluge right now of stories (whether real or not) about how the RNC is about to blow apart.

How is this not happening?
