The thing I hate most about political elections is that the only way to really know which candidate you like is to dig around. Dig around a lot.
Why can’t the candidates just come out with their positions – their real positions, not their phony, election-time positions – and let the people decide?
The candidates could just [...]
Some in the right-wing blogosphere are trying to raise some money for Fred Thompson with a Fred Thompson Blogburst. You can find out more at Right Wing News, which I have never actually read before despite the relevant name.
Anyway, they made a rather humorous video that sums up my opinion of the GOP candidates in [...]
In this morning’s paper, there was an AP story about the inquiry, instigated by Sen. Charles Grassley of Iowa, the ranking Republican on the Senate Finance Committee, into the financial records of several Christian ministries that preach the so-called “prosperity doctrine.”

I was just reading a column by Peggy Noonan which really sums up what I don’t like about Huckabee’s self-dubbed “the Christian candidate” status.

At any rate, a well-known conservative Christian homeschool blogger, who retired from blogging last December, Spunky Homeschool, has briefly returned to offer a [...]
Those of you who have no children, or whose children are in school all day, probably do not know of the madness that breaks out around a house that is full of children all day, when there are only 7 days until Christmas.
Trust me, it’s not pretty.
As such, I am not sure how the posting [...]
Everything I love about capitalism and everything I hate about capitalism all rolled into one.
The other day, I remarked to my husband that I would rather have Hillary Clinton as President than Barack Obama. He asked me why, which I think actually meant, “Why on earth are you even imagining which Democrat you would rather have?”
At the time, I really wasn’t able to put it into words.
Well, now I [...]
