Sunday Worship or Sellebrity Saturday?

Some religions consider Saturday the Sabbath so I am splitting the difference.

Bye Bye Barney?

First, a word from our sponsor: Click Here!

Barney Frank might lose this November. Opponents to perennials are usually picked from the lost cause scrap heap. The party scours the academic world and they persuade Professor Weenie to add the candidate blurb to their not always impressive resume. Not this time.

The GOP challenger to Barney Frank is a stud of a candidate. If this were the NBA, he would be a lottery pick. He is young, handsome, a successful businessman, a Marine, a family man and a man of faith. In essence, he is the anti-Barney.

Yes, Barney can still dust off the Larouchians but can he beat a pit bull in a cage fight? We will find out in November. I have not checked the Intrade site in months but if this proposition is offered, it might reap handsome rewards.

New Hampshire Primaries

I went to bed with the belief that Ovide Lamontagne (I like the guy but I had to look up his last name) was the probable winner. I woke up to hear that Ayotte was the probable winner. An hour later Ovide is back in the lead.

This was an interesting race. Sarah Palin backed Ayotte and Demint backed Ovide. The press will probably spin the Tea Party angle no matter who wins. But the fact is, these are probably the two candidates that least fit the tea party template. Bill Binnie, the successful businessman and political outsider spent over $5M of his own cash to garner about 11% of the vote. His commercials seemed to hit all of the bases and they featured voice over extraordinaire Peter Thomaa (you may know him from such TV shows as "Forensic Files") and they followed a tea party narrative. He was supposably a close second to Ayotte in the weeks leading up to the election. So much for polling.

Ovide received the endorsement of "The Union Leader" a newspaper that still packs political clout. An endorsement from most major newspapers don't matter any more but the paper once edited by the Loeb family still decides elections. John McCain resurrected a DOA campaign in 2008 with their endorsement ( a slap in the face to Mitt Romney to be sure.) Ovide followed up with an endorsement from Jim Demint (can we take that to mean that he is running for the presidency in 2012?) New Hampshire is known as a late-breaking state and a state where the voters seem to want to prove pollsters wrong. Everything changed in the last few days of the primary.

What is the largest lesson of this primary? It confirms the belief that New Hampshire is perhaps the quirkiest, most independent,least predictable state in the Union. It is not the bellwhether. Not even close. It is New Hampshire. Now and for ever.

Viva La Granite State!

Not Quite Super Tuesday.

This is Not Quite Super Tuesday throughout the country. Some key primaries will be decided. Some of these races are interesting. New Hampshire comes to mind. You have the career attorney general who happens to be endorsed by Sarah Palin running against a wealthy businesmen. It seemed like a two horse race until the state's biggest newspaper endorsed the constitutional conservative and Jim Demint followed suit. This will come down to the wire.

In Massachusetts several GOP candidates have risen to the surface. The local talk radio stations have fielded the complaints of bias and favoritism because a lot of GOP candidates could not get on the air. They were a victim of numbers. The field is to wide and too deep.

And then there is the Delaware primary that pits Mr. GOP vs. Ms. Tea Party.

Ahhh to be a fulltime blogger. That would be good. The GOP primaries are where the real issues of the day will be decided in 2010, 2012 and beyond. I wish I could give more attention to those races.

But for now I am just a part time blogger and I have to choose my battles: Media Elitism, The Death of Journalism, Media Bias, Voter Fraud, Destructive Economics and other things Obama. That is where I will focus my limited time.

Sunday Worship: Celebrities Praise Their Deity

First, a word from our sponsor: Click Here!
This originally ran on Sellebrity Saturday. But this has to run on Sunday Worship too. It just has to. This really does get sillier with the passing of time and it was pretty damn silly to begin with.

If I had more time, I would redo the vid with a laugh track.


Fair play for the Kool-aidphobic.
