Turbo Obama [w/ Palin Update]

[Palin Update: I thought she did quite well in her debut. Seemed confident. Never had a deer in the headlights look. Lotsa energy. Cute kids! The McCain campaign threw long here and it may have been a brilliant gamble....

Wet Stuff From Sky

This morning wet stuff came from the sky and, after much analysis, I determined it to be the phenomenon historians refer to as rain. It hasn't rained in August. You could call it a drought, or another harbinger of...

More on the Clinton Convention

Just a thought: It's probably a mistake for Obama to take the Spinal Tap route in the set design for his speech Thursday. (Where's the miniature Stonehenge?) Back to Hillary's speech: I've reconsidered what I said earlier this morning,...

Another Day of Clintons

This has become the Clinton Convention. The Clintons are to political conventions what gymnastics are to the Olympics: Just when you think you've seen the last of them, there's another day of competition, another set of apparatuses. Tonight, Bill...

High Drama in Denver

You've probably seen the reports (here and here and here, for example) about a possible plot to kill Obama. Several KKK-types in custody in Denver. Very scary stuff -- makes you shudder just to think of that sort of...

'A Bridge to the 20th Century'

This weekend, a senior Democratic party figure told me that the presidential election isn't shaping up well for Obama. Two problems persist, he said: Obama hasn't clearly defined himself, and there remains a great deal of latent racism in...

Biden: The unCheney

No doubt many have already made this point: Joe Biden is the unCheney. There are not two more different characters - stylistically -- in American politics. Biden is voluble, passionate, self-aggrandizing, funny. Cheney is calculating, secretive, cold. Biden likes...
