  2. I’m with ya on March 4.

  3. Where in the World is Jessica McBride?

    What we have here is truly, “Failure to Communicate”

    She seems to have gone the way of fellow right wing activist mover and shaker Todd Robert Murphy.

    Remember Todd (my mother named me Todd Robert)?

    Kingmaker, avid fund raiser for political insiders, panel member on the Belling Sunday morning show, a non indicted associate of many involved in the Bielinski “affair.” Some believe he was NGRR (Not Guilty by Reason of being Republican).

    But back to Ms. McBride. I wonder what reason she gives the fertile young minds she fills with unbiased knowledge for her sudden cessation of blogging?

    This, an election year, ripe with topics for columns full of her wit, wisdom, wishing, wondering and whitewashing but little from the Mistress of Spin but an occasional Henny Youngman one- liner accompanied by a link to someone else’s work.

    John McCain goes from impossible recipient of the Republican nomination to the man that lost to the first African American President of the United States and Ms. McBride is not to be heard?

    No comment on voter fraud/voter ID, Walker vs. Taylor or Gableman vs. Butler from the Mistress of Spin?

    Truly, the silence IS deafening.

  4. Hi Scott,
    That’s an excellent photo!

    I too voted for Barry in the California Primaries. But not because I like him. I’m a registered non-partisan here so I was not allowed to vote on any ballot except Democrat and non-partisan (the one with referendum questions, etc.).

    I voted for Barry for two reasons:
    1) I wanted to keep things interesting. The more debate the better in my opinion. He and Hillary running neck & neck makes for better democracy not worse.
    2) Despite the fact that I disagree with 99% of his platform (and will be voting against him in the general election) something impresses me about the fact that he has chosen to run now – this year. As a popular senator from IL, he’s looking a basically a lifetime of incumbent landslides. He could wait it out and run for prez in another 8 years and probably win then too. But he choosing to this now, at a time (in my opinion anyway) is probably the worst time to be President of the United States. Almost everyone hates us, the economy is shaky, and the country is severely divided. We all know why Hillary runs: power hungry. Plus, she’s older and this really is probably her last chance. But for Obama, who is still young, it seems like this is more real to him – has more meaning. I admire that.

    We’ll see what happens. But right now my money is still on Hillary. She has the business/corporate money and influence that Obama doesn’t. That goes a long long way in America and is what I think will put her in the White House next January.

    For me in November, I’ll probably vote Libertarian.
