    Conservatives are, IMHO, soon to be in the decided and percecuted minority. It is accordingly time to utilize methods from the Radical Left playbook "Rules for Radicals" to further our agenda. My suggested targets are: Harry Reid (vulnerable), the owners of Google (soft and naive), and the president of Time Warner (useful). Here are the Rules: RULE 1: "Power is not only what you have, but what the enemy thinks you have." Power is derived from 2 main sources - money and people. "Have-Nots" must build power from flesh and blood. (These are two things of which there is a...

    The day after the election, Slate's political writers tackled the question of why the Democratic Party—which has now lost five of the past seven presidential elections and solidified its minority status in Congress—keeps losing elections. Chris Suellentrop says that John Kerry was too nuanced and technocratic, while George W. Bush offered a vision of expanding freedom around the world. William Saletan argues that Democratic candidates won't win until they again cast their policies the way Bill Clinton did, in terms of values and moral responsibility. Timothy Noah contends that none of the familiar advice to the party—move right, move left,...

    I say forget introspection. It's time to be honest about our antagonists. My predecessors in this conversation are thoughtful men, and I honor their ideas, but let's try something else. I grew up in Missouri and most of my family voted for Bush, so I am going to be the one to say it: The election results reflect the decision of the right wing to cultivate and exploit ignorance in the citizenry. I suppose the good news is that 55 million Americans have evaded the ignorance-inducing machine. But 58 million have not. (Well, almost 58 million—my relatives are not ignorant,...

    Los Angeles Times ^ | November 7, 2004
    The transcripts show that John F. Kerry said the right things to connect with religion-minded voters, with his earnest speeches about God's work on Earth and invocations of faith and Scripture. Yet they landed with a thud on a populace conditioned to view liberal Democrats as faithless intellectuals. No doubt Kerry's stiff New England style didn't help. This is not what religious faith looks like to much of the rest of the country, especially the South. Yet one candidate's stiffness cannot fully explain the "God gap" that drives people of faith, and those more concerned with moral issues than economic...

    I have to thank Jimmy Carter for saving my sanity. Granted, his was not a presidency that one looks back to with fondness. Gas lines stretched forever, Iran took our people hostage, and there was disco. But Carter's ex-presidency has been a model of that unofficial institution. He has built homes for the poor, mediated wars, helped feed the hungry in Africa, fought disease in Latin America. In so doing, Carter -- a deacon of Maranatha Baptist Church in Plains, Ga. -- has obeyed a directive that Jesus issued to one of his disciples.

    Bested by a Republican campaign emphasizing Christian faith, some Democrats are scrambling to shake off their secular image, stepping up efforts to organize the "religious left" and debating changes to how they approach the cultural flashpoints of same-sex marriage and abortion. Some call the election a warning. "You can't have everybody who goes to church vote Republican; you just can't," Al From, founder of the Democratic Leadership Council, said last week at a forum on the election. Religious traditionalists including Dr. Richard Land, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the conservative Southern Baptist Convention, and Jim Wallis...

    Democrats, reeling from the Republicans' success at courting churchgoers, are focusing new attention on a religious and political anomaly: Jim Wallis, one of the few prominent left-leaning leaders among evangelical Protestants. At the start of the Congressional session, Senate Democrats invited Mr. Wallis to address their members at a private session to discuss issues. A group of about 15 House Democrats invited him to a breakfast discussion about dispelling their party's secular image. And NBC News has enlisted him to appear as a guest during its inauguration coverage opposite Dr. James C. Dobson, one of the most prominent evangelical conservatives....

Pelosi has tapped U.S. Rep. James Clyburn, D-S.C., to lead the effort to recapture faith-based voters who, exit polls indicate, constituted a substantial bloc of votes in the 2004 U.S. elections. Clyburn said he would convene a working group to review party policies and ideas and look at new ways to frame those issues in faith-based terms, Roll Call reported Monday.

    America stands at a religious and a political crossroad. If Barack Obama becomes president, his religiosity will be embraced to some extent by certain members of our society. There will be more unseemly and drastic changes than our country has ever experienced. Obama and others of his ilk will dedicatedly undermine the traditional understanding of God’s Word to change our society as they see fit. The Democrats implemented a strategy to vie for votes using Christian verbiage to draw people to them. However, Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Father Michael Pfeger spoiled it to a degree with their flamboyance.

Across the country, GOP candidates are breaking with the White House over how long troops should remain in Iraq and who should lead the war effort.

    The leader of the Democratic National Committee announced Monday that he will start an investigation into voting irregularities in Ohio, where lines snaked outside some inner-city polling places on election day and provisional ballots were sometimes in short supply. Terry McAuliffe, chairman of the DNC, said the aim of "this comprehensive study is not to contest the results of the 2004 election, but to help ensure that every eligible vote cast is truly counted." McAuliffe made his announcement on the same day that Ohio Secretary of State J. Kenneth Blackwell certified the state's final presidential election results, declaring President Bush...

    With support from John Kerry's campaign, two third-party candidates for president officially asked on Tuesday for a recount in Ohio, the state that put President Bush over the top in November. The requests, mailed to all 88 counties, were expected to arrive by Wednesday. Generally, county election boards must agree to a recount, as long as the parties bringing the challenge pay for it. And the Green and Libertarian parties collected enough donations to cover the required $113,600, or $10 per precinct. David Cobb, Green Party presidential candidate, said the election was full of irregularities, including uncounted provisional ballots. "There...

Rossi declared victory yesterday after winning two statewide counts in the closest gubernatorial race in Washington history and instructed his transition team to continue moving forward. Gregoire, however, refused to give up and said she will demand a manual recount. "The race continues," Gregoire said at a news conference. "It's a tied race." She said she hasn't decided whether she and the Democratic Party would call for...

    A federal judge yesterday denied a request by the state Republican Party to stop the King County recount of votes in the tightly contested race for governor between Dino Rossi and Christine Gregoire. Despite the judge's ruling, Republicans stepped up their attacks on how election workers in the heavily Democratic county were handling ballots. Gregoire, a Democrat, won King County with 57 percent of the approximately 898,000 votes cast, but she trailed Republican Rossi by 261 votes statewide. The small margin triggered an automatic machine recount. Chris Vance, head of the state Republican Party, accused King County election officials of...

The Republican spokespeople are starting to talk about "We will still have a Republican congress." 4. Tradesports futures and the DOW are down. Maybe manipulation, maybe a sign of trouble.

It's no mystery why. People more likely to vote Democrat are less likely to have a sense of independence and individuality. They're followers, and as followers they're easily herded. Bush's best chance is rain ... bad weather in the battleground states. Bad weather will suppress the Democratic vote. And just why is that? Think about it.

    MILWAUKEE - The superintendent of Milwaukee schools halted a get-out-the-vote program involving students after complaints were raised about its link to a pro-Kerry organization. Superintendent William Andrekopoulos acted late Wednesday, citing a policy that prohibits the district from being a political advocate. His decision came a day after Republicans accused Democrats of using the students for political gain because the program was organized by the Wisconsin Citizen Action Fund, whose parent organization endorsed Sen. John Kerry (news - web sites) for president. Students at 33 Milwaukee schools called voters and went door to door in minority neighborhoods and areas with...

    Heard a radio appeal by mayor Kwame Kilpatrick urging citizens to vote. He said that even if you have been convicted of a felony, you can vote as long as you are not in prison. Weird message. Can this be legal? They are hoping to match Saddam's 100% of the vote in Wayne County to counter the 99% Republican rest of our great Great Lake state.
