    The White House today announced that it has negotiated a trade for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA). In exchange for the return of Cantor to the House of Representatives, Democrats have agreed to expel Debbie Wasserman-Shultz (D-FL), Maria Cantwell (D-WA), Patty Murray (D-WA), Sheila Jackson-Lee (D-TX), and Maxine Waters (D-CA). Observers remarked on the fact that Democrats traded five women in exchange for one man, hinting that the so-called War on Women was really worth five women to one man. "We can do better than this," said former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. "Under my leadership, no women were...

    Family members, friends and school officials are mourning the loss of a 14-year-old girl who was struck and killed by a train in Martinez when, according to her mother, she tried to retrieve a cell phone she had dropped on the tracks.

    CNBC is reporting that Steve Wozniak, who founded Apple with Steve Jobs in 1976, is seeking to become an Australian citizen. Wozniak, who is currently in Australia promoting the launch of the new iPhone 5, spoke with Australian media and expressed his love for the country, and for the Australian government’s plans to launch its National Broadband Network (NBN). This lead many news outlets to incorrectly report that Wozniak’s motivations for emigrating were purely because of the NBN. Wozniak mentioned that he would keep his U.S. citizenship, but said, “I intend to call myself an Australian and feel Australian.” Unfortunately,...

I am interested in hearing your preferences regarding the Electoral College table. Regarding the EV table and using the last report's data, previously I was grouping the states into fewer categories (Safe, Leaning, Toss-Up), where Toss-Up included all states within +/- 1%. This time, I added a Strong category to spread out the leans, and pushed the +/- 1% states into Lean (keeping Toss-Up for just tied polls). The effect of this change is...

  • Limbaugh jumps from KSFO to Clear Channel's 910

    Clear Channel is beefing up the lineup on its 910 AM frequency, first by hiring fired KGO hosts Len Tillem and Gene Burns, and now by adding Rush Limbaugh. The new lineup starts Jan. 3. Limbaugh’s move was revealed publicly in a tweet by 910 morning hosts Armstrong & Getty. There are two schools of thought about why Limbaugh is changing stations. One is that his show is expensive and KSFO’s owner, Cumulus Media, is cutting costs. That’s why they laid off most of the talk hosts at KGO and replaced them with less expensive news staffers. Another theory is...

We hope that being awarded this Peace Prize causes President Obama to change his mind about deploying his armies against us now, or we will be forced to humiliate him by rescinding this award." The White House has not returned calls for clarification on how this award will affect their future plans in Iraq and Afghanistan.

How would Obama use or misuse this executive power to get around Congress, should he win the Presidency? Even if Congress is on his side, it still takes time to work legislation through the House and the Senate, with the public debate and constituent lobbying, and media reporting/propagandizing. Will Obama fall in love with the swiftness of the pen and follow in Clinton's footsteps? What havoc would he wreak on us with unchecked executive orders?-PJ

    We’ve all seen the e-mail sent out days before an election: “Democrats vote on Tuesday, Republicans vote on Wednesday. Don’t forget to vote! Wink, wink.” Or vice versa. Republicans can be just as juvenile. Generally speaking, such “friendly reminders” are sent as a joke, which then may or may not actually trick a few people. Probably those who are tricked are better off not voting anyway, but that is another point altogether. (In case you haven’t voted recently, everyone votes on Tuesday.) But there seems to be a new “Republicans vote on Wednesday” taking form in time for the 2006...

    It's not always true that familiarity breeds contempt. An unknown political candidate who bears a passing resemblance to Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) will be liked more than one who doesn't -- even when the candidate is a man. But a fresh face who looks a bit like Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) may be out of luck. The more a candidate looks like McCain, the less people like him or her, according to the first online experiment conducted by The Washington Post, washingtonpost.com and Shanto Iyengar, director of the political communication lab at Stanford University.

  • Vanity: Now That They're Here, What Does the UN Think of the Election Irregularites So Far?

    So what is the United Nations doing with their monitors? I know we lamented the fact that the UN was invited in to monitor our elections. Now that they're here, what do they think of the registration stuffing, provisional ballot court rulings, and lawyers in the precincts ready to "freeze the process?" If you ask me, if you want the UN to have an opportunity to re-legitimize itself (as anti-USA as they are), they should use the Democrat vote fraud as the reason to declare to the world that the USA elections were unfair. Even if (when) George Bush wins...

    Suppose you're an employer and you hear that one of your employees, who's been working for you for about four years, once had a drinking problem and in fact pleaded guilty nearly 30 years ago to a misdemeanor charge of driving under the influence. You actually heard about all this when you initially hired him, and it did give you second thoughts, but in the end you decided to give him a chance. In the four years he's been working for you, you've seen no sign that he's fallen off the wagon. Is there any cause here to fire him?...

    Police officials investigating the alleged theft of source code at Jolly Technologies' Mumbai development center are questioning aspects of the security incursion reported by the company (see story). Jolly lacked a security policy at its Mumbai center, according to investigators examining the alleged theft of company code by a development center employee. "We have done a preliminary inquiry and took the help of technical experts, but prima facie nothing during this inquiry indicated that the employee had transferred any file or document from her office computer to any other location," said Anami Roy, Mumbai's commissioner of police. Roy added that...

    Jolly Technologies, a division of U.S. company Jolly Inc., reported yesterday that an insider at its research and development center in Mumbai stole portions of the source code and confidential design documents relating to one of its key products. As a result, the company has halted all development at the center. Jolly Technologies is a vendor of labeling and card software for the printing industry. It set up its R&D facility in Mumbai less than three months ago, according to a statement from the parent company. The company said that according to a report obtained from its branch in India,...

    Kerry: Elect Me and Find Out (CNSNews.com) - Sen. John F. Kerry told ABC News, "I will have significant, enormous reduction in the level of troops" in Iraq by the end of his term, but he refused to say how he would accomplish that. Elect me and find out, he indicated. I've been involved in this for a long time, longer than George Bush," Kerry told George Stephanopoulos, the host of ABC's "This Week." "I've spent 20 years negotiating, working, fighting for different kinds of treaties and different relationships around the world. I know that as president there's huge leverage...

    Michael Savage Uncensored May 15, 2004 7:00pm PDT Chronicle Pavillion Concord, California I attended the Savage Uncensored show at the Chronicle Pavillion in Concord, California last night, hosted by KNEW 910 radio. It was an improvement over his last show, Name 'Em and Shame 'Em, which was at the Marin Civic Center in 2000. Still, if Savage wishes to take his show on the road he will have to polish his act some more. The audience was a mix of older couples, twenty-somethings, families, military/police/firefighters, and "Savage Singles." The show opened with a Metallica look-a-like band named "Creeping Death." They...

    Ever since former Bush counterterrorism adviser Richard Clarke testified that National Security Adviser Condeleezza Rice was largely to blame for the lack of preparedness before the 9-11 terror attacks, the tongues have wagged furiously about her future. A White House damage-control effort has been busily under way, and Rice has dropped her opposition to publicly testifying under oath before the 9-11 Commission. Yet it will take much work to undue the collateral damage from Clarke's attack and Rice's week of foot-dragging before finally succumbing to public pressure. Conventional wisdom holds that her days in politics are numbered. Some predict she...

    Regarding Mel Gilsons Movie The Passion of the Christ: 1. To the question of the movie depicting hate and anger, I ask you to say why you think Jesus was killed, if not from anger and hate. What is wrong with depicting the anger and hate if it was the motive for a killing? 1a. Can you name other movies about senseless killings based on anger and hate? How many of them were nominated for Academy Awards? 1b. How about the movie about Matthew Shepherd? Why was the depiction of anger and hate acceptable in that movie, but not in...

    Larry Krebs, 81, one of Washington's last old-school gumshoe newshounds who was perhaps best known for being the only cameraman at the Tidal Basin the night a powerful congressman and a striptease artist landed in hot water, died Feb. 11 at Sibley Memorial Hospital of complications after a stroke. He was a Washington resident. [snip] One of the most infamous stories he broke was the 1974 Tidal Basin scandal, in which an intoxicated Rep. Wilbur D. Mills (D-Ark.), driving his Lincoln Continental, was pulled over by a U.S. Park Police officer. An exotic dancer named Fanne Foxe jumped out of...

    Rangel is asking "Is there any evidence that the rat in the hole coordinated resistance?" He's calling Saddam a "bum." I say that, on the face of it, there may be evidence that he did NOT coordinate the resistance, given his appearance and where/how he was found. Even THAT is important information to know. What Rangel is not saying is that if we hadn't gotten Saddam, Rangel would be running around still claiming that Saddam WAS coordinating the resistance. Now that we have him, Rangel is saying that there is no evidence that he was coordinating the resistance. I say...
