Listen Up Republicans

Because I do my level best to avoid liberals, most of the political arguments I get into are with my fellow conservatives. As a rule, it comes down to my being willing to vote for any Republican on the general ballot. In the primaries, I will always favor the one furthest to the right. But…

The Nooky Follies

When you realize how many political careers and reputations have been destroyed because of sex scandals over the past several years, it’s truly mind-boggling. David Petraeus is just the latest in a long line that goes back at least as far as John Kennedy and includes the likes of Gary Hart, Bob Packwood, Wilbur Mills,…

The “he’s too rich and out of touch” wasn’t resonating with the…

More Reasons to Despise Liberals

My wife hates it when I say I hate something or someone, but she usually gives me a pass when I substitute the word “despise.” I suppose it doesn’t sound so personal. Also, hatred is said to infect the hater. I don’t really feel that way. I think openly hating evildoers is a wonderful release….

When Private Choices Affect Public Trust

“It’s his private life; it has nothing to do with being President.”  This was the mantra my liberal friends chanted when President Clinton was involved with Monica Lewinsky in our House – the White House. The choice to engage in risky behavior is a reflection on one’s character, on one’s ability to make decisions. My…
