Vote Mike Oot - NY23

Listen to the passion in Mike Oot's summary at the Potsdam debate with John McHugh. It really is time for McHugh to retire. Let's have someone who really cares represent us in Congress.

Nobel Prize Scientists Support Obama

What a surprise. Seventy-six Nobel Prize winning scientists support Obama for President. Damn elitists!

Warning! Warning! Obama is a Commie!

Dedicated to Watson in the Adirondacks

Obama Will Destroy Our Country

Here is my conservative friend of the North Country, Watson In The Adirondacks (like most Republicans he tends to stretch the truth ie. the Adirondack part of his name):
There are millions of Americans that will never sit idly by while a socialist/communist administration leads this country towards Soviet style democracy. We will fight you in the halls of Congress; we will fight you in the courts; we will fight you on the airwaves, we will fight you with every legal means available.
You can see that Watson has the final Palin/McCain talking points down cold. Get to the gun store, prepare for revolution. We are going to become like the Soviet Union! This is somewhat surprising because Watson is actually a pretty smart guy. You have to ask, does he really believe that crap he is spewing? Is Obama really a communist. Can you be a Muslim/Socialist/Communist all at the same time? A good Muslim wants his religion to be the government. I thought that's what Conservatives wanted. A socialist? You mean like Reagan or Palin. I can see that Watson is upset about the tax increase proposed by Obama. Wealthy people like Watson don't want to pay more in taxes.

Then we have Watson's enabler, Sir Charles. Sir Charles is worried that Obama is going to be like Bush when it comes to answering questions or investigating his own administration.
let me get this straight...not only does Senator Obama get a free pass for the election campaign, once he takes office any investigation of him or questioning of his programs, any investigation of his appointments, any criticism of his missteps will automatically be considered "hate"?
Well, why shouldn't Obama use the same standards that the Bush administration has used. Conservatives haven't been complaining about Bush's lack of forthcoming. Nosir, outing a CIA agent is patriotic.

I have to admit, I'm sitting back chortling about Obama's coming victory (I'm hoping for 350 electoral votes). Conservatives are scared to death that Obama will be as secretive as Bush has been. What's that old saying...."what's good for the goose...."? Maybe "not gonna get fooled again" works even better.

October Snowstorm

From this,

To this.

Wealth Redistribution - In Alaska

Sounds like Communism to me. Wait, didn't our tax dollars buy Alaska? Shouldn't we all get a piece of the action or at least have the money go back to the government that purchased the land?

New vs Old Republican Party

Far from me to give advice to Republicans but here is my view. The Republican party of today does not represent the Republican party of yesterday - at least since the implementation of the "Southern Strategy". Here is a statement from one of the new Republicans:
Jim Nuzzo, a White House aide to the first President Bush, dismissed Mrs Palin's critics as "cocktail party conservatives" who "give aid and comfort to the enemy".

He told The Sunday Telegraph: "There's going to be a bloodbath. A lot of people are going to be excommunicated. David Brooks and David Frum and Peggy Noonan are dead people in the Republican Party. The litmus test will be: where did you stand on Palin?"

The old Republican party of Goldwater stood for fiscal restraint, small government, low taxes, a strong military and capitalism. It seems the most powerful of todays Republicans stand for....well, I'm not really sure what they stand for anymore ....God, guns, dinosaurs and fear? Divisiveness? Anti-science, anti-rationalism? Whatever they stand for, it is not what Republicans used to stand for. And, after this election is over, it appears that even more Republicans of yore are going to be thrown under the bus. That is alright with me. I hope Sarah Palin becomes a rising star in the new Republican party. The party of dinosaurs. (The above picture is perfect for the new Republicans as it includes a human walking among the disosaurs....what, about 6000 years ago?)

Party of the South

Looks like the Republican Party has become the party of the South. The "Southern strategy" is still working for them. (figure from Princeton Election)

Conservative View on Sandy Treadwell

I found the below on the Streetcornerconservative blog:
After watching Treadwell in action, the Post’s Albany political editor, Fred Dicker, referred to him as “insular, elitist and ideologically anemic” and tagged him as an “immensely Caspar Milquetoast-like trust funder.”
Caspar Milquetoast-like trust funder? Dicker does have a way with words.

Vet Who Did Not Vet

Bush Endorses McCain

Joe Lieberman is Worried

Joe Lieberman thinks Democrats have short memories - they don't. Lieberman, like David Frum, sees the writing on the wall. John McCain is going to lose the election and he is going to take the entire Republican Party with him. Lieberman wants us to believe that he has been respectful of Barack Obama for the entire campaign. That's not the way I remember it. I watched Joe Lieberman, at the Republican National Convention, tell the entire Nation that Obama does not put country first. Lieberman has also implied that Obama is a marxist. I hope Lieberman gets kicked out of the Democratic caucus and loses his committee chairmanship.
