Palin’s first national speech an unqualified success

The Democrats now know they have their hands full with Sarah Palin. If there was any doubt that the self proclaimed “hockey mom” governor of Alaska could hold her own in the national political arena, it was dispelled by her performance at the Republican National Convention.

Palin delivers star-turning performance at RNC

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Sarah Palin delivered. An embattled vice presidential candidate, a novice on the national stage, the head of a family suffering its “ups and downs,” the first-term Alaska governor rocked the GOP convention with a star-turning performance.

Wielding a stiletto and a smile, Palin belittled Democrat Barack Obama and praised her new boss, John McCain, jolting the crowd of GOP partisans.

“Don’t you think we made the right choice for the next vice president of the United States!” McCain said, hinting the controversy surrounding his pick. “And what a beautiful family.”

Republicans Rock Obama!

Posted by madcap on September 4, 2008

What a great convention night. Rudolph Giuliani ripped Obama down to size with facts. Sarah Palin finished him off with even more facts. The main stream media says that they did not “like her tone.” What they do not like are the facts. The fact is, Obama has never so much as ran an ice cream stand, flip flops on issues, and gives empty speeches. I can’t wait till the debates. Obama is an empty suit compared to the lifetime of real and actual achievements of both McCain and Palin.

Yesterday a workmate of mine said he liked Obama’s speech, and was thinking about voting for him. The week before he told me he did not pay much attention to politics. I told him that Obama was counting on millions of people just like him who do not pay attention. He then agreed that it was not a good idea to judge someone simply upon a speech. I hope he was watching tonight!

Also watch!!

John McCain has chosen the female governor of Alaska as his running mate in a surprise move by the Republican nominee.

Sarah Palin, 44, is a dynamic mother of five who became the youngest governor in Alaskan history two years ago when she took office after campaigning to clean up government.

Mrs Palin is a high-risk choice given her lack of experience but could help deliver both an injection of youthfulness to Senator McCain’s campaign as well as appealing to female voters yet to transfer their allegiance from Hillary Clinton to Barack Obama.

Shelby Steele On The Obama Bargain

Posted by madcap on March 18, 2008

Shelby Steele has an interesting article in the Wall Street Journal on how much race plays a major roll in Obama’s popularity. Steele has a great book on this topic titled “White Guilt” that goes into detail on the history and effect of “Black Power”on the black community. The Moyers link is excellent. I think Steele hits the nail on the head in so many ways.

“How to turn one’s blackness to advantage?

The answer is that one “bargains.” Bargaining is a mask that blacks can wear in the American mainstream, one that enables them to put whites at their ease. This mask diffuses the anxiety that goes along with being white in a multiracial society. Bargainers make the subliminal promise to whites not to shame them with America’s history of racism, on the condition that they will not hold the bargainer’s race against him. And whites love this bargain — and feel affection for the bargainer — because it gives them racial innocence in a society where whites live under constant threat of being stigmatized as racist. So the bargainer presents himself as an opportunity for whites to experience racial innocence.

This is how Mr. Obama has turned his blackness into his great political advantage, and also into a kind of personal charisma. Bargainers are conduits of white innocence, and they are as popular as the need for white innocence is strong. Mr. Obama’s extraordinary dash to the forefront of American politics is less a measure of the man than of the hunger in white America for racial innocence.”

But bargainers have an Achilles heel. They succeed as conduits of white innocence only as long as they are largely invisible as complex human beings. They hope to become icons that can be identified with rather than seen, and their individual complexity gets in the way of this. So bargainers are always laboring to stay invisible. (We don’t know the real politics or convictions of Tiger Woods or Michael Jordan or Oprah Winfrey, bargainers all.) Mr. Obama has said of himself, “I serve as a blank screen on which people of vastly different political stripes project their own views . . .” And so, human visibility is Mr. Obama’s Achilles heel. If we see the real man, his contradictions and bents of character, he will be ruined as an icon, as a “blank screen.”

What would be said if John McCain attended a church with the following mission statement.
“God dam America.”

“We are a congregation which is Unashamedly White and Unapologetically Christian… Our roots in the White religious experience and tradition are deep, lasting and permanent. We are an European people, and remain “true to our native land,” the mother continent, the cradle of civilization. God has superintended our pilgrimage through the days of slavery, the days of segregation, and the long night of racism. It is God who gives us the strength and courage to continuously address injustice as a people, and as a congregation. We constantly affirm our trust in God through cultural expression of a White worship service and ministries which address the White Community.

Reverend Wright and The End of Obama

Posted by madcap on March 15, 2008

This will be it for Obama.

“House Speaker Newt Gingrich told Fox News’s Greta Van Susteren: “In terms of Sen. Obama, I think he has a credibility question.”

Gingrich continued: “Does he honestly expect the nation to believe that for 20 years, longer than 20 years, according to his own testimony, … he didn’t notice the anti-American rhetoric? I mean, does somebody seriously believe that in over 800 potential Sunday visits, it never once came up, no one ever mentioned it to him? I think that strains credibility.”

The Evangelical Factor

The Evangelical Factor
February 1, 2008
By, Chuck Jines

What is going on in the GOP? Over the past seven years I have watched John McCain infuriate conservatives time and time again. Yet here we are, aghast that McCain is the current front runner, and more than likely, our Republican nominee. The evangelicals are once again paving the road for the secular humanist .

These folks have thrown support behind Huckabee primarily because he is a Christian. This is just as intellectually vacant as voting for someone because they are black, or a woman, or insisting the universe was literally created in six, twenty four hour days.

All political correctness aside, these folks are reluctant to support Romney primarily because he is a Mormon. A few minuets reviewing the comments on Godtube makes this point quite clear.

It would be the greatest example of Christian humility if Huckabee would do the right thing and bow out ,like Giuliani and Thomson did when it became obvious that they did not have a chance. The only thing Huckabee has accomplished, is splitting the conservative vote, thus rolling out the red carpet for a McCain nomination.

And then…. the crabby old man will get rolled over by either Billary or Obama.

This is a great article by “the great one,” Mark Levin:

Rally for Romney
Conservatives need to act now, before it is too late.
