Obamessiah

We have a double-standard check when it comes to God-talk done by Democrats vs. Republicans. Is there any doubt that the secular left would have a cow had House Speaker Denny Hastert referred to President George W. Bush as "a leader that God has blessed us with at this time"? No? Then why the silence […]

WSJ on Obama vs. Clarence Thomas

At Saturday's Civil Forum, Obama said one Supreme Court jurist that he would not have appointed is Clarence Thomas. No surprise there. And it would've likely been a non-story if Obama had kept his criticism to the fact that he disagrees with Thomas' judicial philosophy. But Obama wasn't quite smart enough to limit his remarks […]

Running the numbers

Washington Post ombudsman Deborah Powell has crunched the numbers -- both in photos and words -- and it should come as little surprise that Obama is getting substantially more photos and stories than his GOP rival. The explanations are predictable, and to some extent may be true. But, as Howell acknowledges, it doesn't look good.

On human rights, rights and morals

Prompted by the post below, I want to just touch on a couple of human-rights related issues. The first one is prompted by Obama's claim that the issue of when babies deserve human rights (or put another way, when does human life begin) is "above my pay grade." Think about that answer with regard to […]

Obama's shame, Pt. 3

After calling the National Right-to-Life Committee -- and others who have repeated the group's claims that Obama opposed the Illinois version of the Born-Alive Infant Protection Act -- liars. An Obama spokesman came out yesterday and confessed that there is only one liar -- and his name is Barack Obama. His campaign yesterday acknowledged that […]

Cone of silence scandal

I've mentioned before that Sen. Barack Obama's performance at Saturday evening's Civil Forum on the Presidency at Saddleback Church was noticably inferior to that of John McCain. Where Obama paused, uhhh'd and stumbled his way through much of the evening, McCain appeared in his element and much better composed. Obama's people have taken these disparate […]

Obama's shame Pt.2

CBN's David Brody asked Sen. Barack Obama about the NRLC's discovery -- with solid documentary evidence -- that Obama voted down a state bill identical to the federal Born-Alive Infant Protection Act that Obama claims he supported. Obama calls the NRLC liars -- without any documentary proof other than his own say-so. Sorry, but that […]

TiVo-blogging the Civil Forum

So, it's not really a TiVo, but everyone understands that ubiquitous term as opposed to the slightly more obscure PVR -- which is what I'm really using. (Transcript can be found here.) As I have done before, let me re-state my concern about having pastors/priests/men of God dabbling in partisan politics: They shouldn't. Having said […]

It's always hockey season

If you've had the unfortunate experience of having to watch Al Gore's "An Inconvenient Truth," then you've seen the graph known as the hockey stick. It's called the hockey stick because it looks like a hockey stick laid on its side with the blade pointing up. It's also a crock. First, you'll notice if you […]

Inconvenient weather

In the past couple of years my reading on climate change has consisted of ClimateAudit.org and WattsUpWithThat on the Web and the book "Unstoppable Global Warming." Yesterday, I finished "Climate Confusion," by Roy W. Spencer, a book perfect for the layman ("Unstoppable Global Warming" is a little more on the heavy side) when it comes […]
