Odds & Ends

How about a panoply of cartoonish insight on a variety of issues? Let’s start with that ever-present “movement” that’s occupying the airwaves. The nature of the movement is finally becoming obvious to almost everyone. Well, almost everyone: Back in Congress, the so-called Super Committee is attempting to hammer out a deficit-reduction package. That should be easy. A small group certainly can accomplish more than the entire Congress, right? Right? President Obama has been doing whatever he can via executive orders…. Read more »

Has It Really Come to This?

Do I know for sure that Herman Cain is innocent of all the charges swirling around him at this moment? No, of course not. I wasn’t there to witness what really happened.

Maybe the media helps: Hang in there, Mr. Cain; many have gone before you, and you walk in the steps of others who have been smeared, yet… Read more »

Trial by Fire

“You can never tell what is around the bend in politics.” That was one of my final thoughts in yesterday’s post as I pondered the future of Herman Cain’s candidacy. It apparently was a prescient comment. The number one political news story all day yesterday was a Politico article pointing to sexual harassment allegations against Cain when he was head of the National Restaurant Association back in the 1990s. I always want to go to the source, so I read… Read more »
