2. McCain reminds me of an old Al Capp figure in the Lil Abner comic strip of years ago: General Jubilation T. Cornpone, mythical Arkansas Confederate general, known for his uncanny ability to “Snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.”p>McCain has been lucky beyond all expectations. He doesn’t have to run against Hillary. Obama is a deeply flawed, inexperienced candidate, probably the least qualified in at least 50 years. Yet, McCain dabbles in support for issues like global warming, and amnesty for illegals, unnecessarily causing unease among the Republican base. If he selects someone who is pro-choice for veep, he risks even more. For once in his life, he needs to “suck it up,” and quit rebelling against common sense and the conservatives. This is his last and best, shot at winning the presidency. Let’s hope he can avoid shooting himself in the foot. br> — R. Goodson br> Vero Beach, Florida /p> p> According to What It Takes by Richard Ben Cramer, at one point when Biden was considering his political future, he was worried about the press picking into his sister Val’s divorce, Jimmy’s bankruptcy and brother Frankie’s “troubles in California…” Who was brother Frankie? Was he the Biden’s Roger Clinton? Apparently Jimmy, who was in bankruptcy, is now James and is solvent. br> — D. Smith /p> p> Let’s not forget this is the same Joe Biden who plagiarized in law school and then with tears in his eyes promised not to do it again and was spared expulsion — he lied. Typical Democrat, a man of no imagination or moral integrity and this is the man Barack Obama hailed “as the next President” of the United States. I guess we know who’s going to wear the “pants” in that family — the cheater and not the madrassa dropout. br> — Michael Tomlinson
A man of faith in a godless age is hitting Americans where it hurts.
Mr. and Mrs. American Spectator Reader, let P.J. O’Rourke talk sense to your kids.
In Britain, defending your property can get you life.
The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
