Time to face facts: Religious base is killing the GOP

It is hard to express how deeply appreciative I am personally for the concerned advice from Democrats and the political left regarding what is wrong with, and how to reinvigorate, revitalize, and improve the Republican Party and the conservative movement in our country. Thank you, thank you, thank you all.  (Nov 22, 2008 | post #19)

The Obama victory: What does it mean?

2004 Memo from the DNC Wherever we are able to eek out a victory, we must blame everything on the Republican that went before, even those things that we enacted over Republican votes. The best things to blame will be those where we were able to swing some Republican votes to our side, e.g., No Child Left Behind and No Money Down Mortgages for the poor. This strategy should work for two years as it has in Maryland. It may work for four, if, there are enough Republicans to blame for our "progress ".  (Nov 6, 2008 | post #4)

In 1st, Kratovil a household name

This helps me understand why Wayne dropped out of the Primary after hearing that Kratovil was running as a Democrat. It is clear that Kratovil was Gilchrest's first choice.  (Nov 3, 2008 | post #29)

Sarah Palin's contribution

I,too, see her contribution as do you - it points up the lack of experience of the top of the Democratic ticket. If McCain is elected, there is a chance that the inexperienced candidate, in Senate and Washington ways, might become President. On the other side, an Obama win puts inexperience in the Presidency for sure. Keep trying. Eventually you might come up with a sound argument to distract us from the more realistic potential for harm that comes from the Democratic ticket.  (Oct 31, 2008 | post #7)

Put it this way: She's certainly no Annabel Lee

Baltimore will have to settle for the real Poe, John Astin, as part of our celebration.  (Oct 31, 2008 | post #3)

Put it this way: She's certainly no Annabel Lee

1) Mr. Kirk has it kind of backwards. Obama already had his victory over the favored candidate, winning at the last moment. 2) Phelps came from behind to win by the closest of margins. Obama is ahead, the polls and MSM tell us, in both the projected electoral and popular vote. It seems clear he will be the winner. For the analogy to work, it is McCain who must be Michael Phelps, edging out the presumed leader by the narrowest of margins, one electoral vote, at the finish. It should be a long night checking the video tapes to ensure the winner. I hope the 96 year-old Mom can handle the shock as well as our Principal did. Perhaps the comments of Mr. Kirk shed some light on the adjective "former'.  (Oct 31, 2008 | post #2)

Make your vote count

The risk you mention is slight, if there is a risk. Making fake ID is a time honored offense. Faking a registration and showing up with a fake ID has little risk. Only the identification of a voter can challenged. The chances of an election judge knowing that a fake person is a fake just does not exist.  (Oct 30, 2008 | post #24)

Make your vote count

Additional advice: If an election judge tells you that you are in the wrong polling place, ask them where you should be. Go there and vote. Right or wrong, the information in all of the poll books in Maryland is the same. Cast your vote on the machine and increase your odds of the vote being counted from 70% to 100%. Fix the problem after you vote or after the election, but go where they send you and vote the Touch Screen on election day. Don't get blinded by a typographical error or clerical mistake. Your goal is to vote. So, vote!  (Oct 28, 2008 | post #8)

The key to his success: bringing us together

I'm confused. Did he bring us together, resulting in an overwhelming number of individuals already participating in calling for his election, or did his campaign work to increase the electorate with massive numbers of new voters. We'll see next week. There will be either a huge number of fewer votes for the Republicans because Obama brought us together, or there will be a larger number of votes for the Democrats with no reduction in the Republican vote, demonstrating that he continued to nurture the divide of the last fifteen years.  (Oct 28, 2008 | post #5)

Pay up or else

According to the propaganda from the Democratic Party and its agents, the folks in arrears want to vote, but are afraid of being arrested at the polls because the police are out there looking for them, good, upstanding, dedicated, responsible citizens that they are. (The foregoing was sarcasm.)  (Oct 28, 2008 | post #10)

Slots aren't the answer to what ails the tracks

Alright. Everybody sit down. Are you sitting? Good. Grip the edges or arms of your chair. Got them? Dan is right. Hold on. Give the blood a chance to return to your head. This slots solution does not help Maryland. Pick a level - it is not good business to do this this way. He hit the nail on the head for what ails tracks. He also hit the nails for what can help them. In recent years we saw an ad campaign that used the seductive voice of a woman to encourage us to, "Play, baby, play!" Did it get you out to the track? I'll bet no. Let the new guy take a shot at running the tracks. Unlike letting the new guy take a shot at the four year job of president, if this guy does no better than the last guy, he is out of there, not hanging around to screw up more stuff.  (Oct 28, 2008 | post #3)

Va. NAACP sues over Election Day worries

The NAACP has fired another shot in the voter suppression campaign. By filing the suit and getting press coverage of the allegations they create the impression that people will face undue hardship if they go out to vote, so they won't go out to vote. The media is not likely to lead with the increases in the number of machines or in the number of polling places. next, they will allege Republican voter suppression of minorities. Make a plan - work the plan. This is great organization!  (Oct 28, 2008 | post #9)

Democrats' questionable means to a dubious end

This one pegs the BS meter. How did the offenders get the e-mail addresses of African-Americans? Is there some database to search? many jurisdictions have regulations prohibiting campaign clothing in polls except while a voter is voting. Did these blasts come from lists to which the African-Americans subscribed? The canard assigned to Republicans regarding child-support has amused me the most for many years. Child support arrearages do not, except in the most extreme circumstances, result in incarceration. But the funniest part is that you would have us believe that 1) the person who doesn't pay his obligations will show up to vote, or 2) that those septuagenarian and octogenarian poll workers would a) have the information attached to a voter registration record and b) would intimidate the voter. Don't believe everything you hear or read. Think and evaluate, then decide.  (Oct 27, 2008 | post #57)

Early voting in Maryland?

A non-scientific observation - Each day, on the televised news reports we are shown long lines, people in lawn chairs, water stations along the path of the line of early voters avoiding long lines at the polls. Perhaps, being television, none of it is real.  (Oct 27, 2008 | post #27)

Don't fear lint, but don't wear any plaid

Not in the law, therefore the judge had to grab some black letter law to overrule the nonsense passed by the General Assembly.  (Oct 27, 2008 | post #2)
