Big choices for Sasha and Malia. Voting is for losers. Socially inept. Plus more.

Ever wonder how he really sees the Senate? Why he reaches “across” the aisle? What truths has he learned that such people as Dodd, Frank, Kennedy, Clinton, Pelosi, Reid, Obama et al. will never ever confront? You say he has a temper…wonder why?
PTSD slides into one’s life by way of experiences. It is not supposed to leave, only to be managed as well as the carrier can do with the skills he or she has available.
Perhaps we’ve painted the wrong picture of McCain, we’ve added too much of what we expected, wanted, and dreamed he should possess.
He is a team player. He knows how far the individual can go in some circumstances.
He will never, never leave his boys from the Hilton to walk
alone…he will fight so all can walk away from that hell!

Re: Paul M’s letter (under “As Sure as Day Follows Night”) in Reader Mail’s Left Coast Lefties:
Look. If the Republican Party collapsed as a Conservative Party reached critical mass to burst into reality, I’d be right there. But let’s have no illusions. Once in full birth it will take the mass media three seconds to call us “The New Republican Party” and “formerly known as the GOP.” It would take no time for some self-styled “conservative” we never heard of to become the media darling (“Mr. Conservative”) who will write and speak in grave tones about how the Conservative Party would need to reach out to the middle and become “big-tent Conservatives.”
Of course, the Conservative Party will be discovered to be laden with scandal. A homosexual Conservative official, whom everyone within fifty miles knows makes no secret or his/her orientation, will be outed as a closeted gay by an “undisclosed Party official” to the Washington Post. (Imagine editorials across the nation analyzing the hypocrisy deep within the Conservative Party) How about a “prominent” nationally known Conservative revealed to have married his Russian bride in the 1980’s without paying for her? Think of the secret rightwing “dirty tricks” squads fooling Afro-Americans and Hispanics to vote for Conservative.
Last but not least, no how precisely and forcefully a Conservative Party puts forth its principles, “everyone knows the real motivations for conservative policies are greed and racism.”
There are more than a few Republican turkeys I’d like to ditch
too. Just don’t fool yourself we’d start off fresh.

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?
