    WASHINGTON — Despite the Republican strategy of passing piecemeal immigration reform, Sen. John McCain predicted today that comprehensive legislation can pass the GOP-controlled House. “I think this fall is very important,” McCain said at a forum hosted by AFL-CIO and the Economic Policy Institute. “Let’s say we enact it, comprehensive immigration reform — I don’t think it gains a single Hispanic voter, but what it does, it puts us on a playing field where we can compete for the Hispanic voter,” McCain told PBS’ Gwen Ifill. “If we don’t do that, frankly, I don’t see — I see further polarization...

    Republicans have their guns blazing, shooting themselves in the foot. One way that conservatives regularly harm themselves is that they start an argument by conceding defeat. They take the false premises of the enemy as the starting point of their own argument. If step one of your defense is to agree with your opponent, you are helping them more than you are helping yourself. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal gave us an example of this technic on Monday. He called on Republicans to “stop being the stupid party” . He said, “We cannot be, we must not be, the party that...

    The evidence continues to mount. More and more it seems we can assume that the Democrats are just simply slow learners, perhaps incredibly so? After proving he was a disastrously weak candidate for president, John Kerry heads off to Iraq and picks up his Bush-bashing right where he left off in his campaign. Does Kerry think he won the election? It is unbelievable that this character is still talking about how Bush "botched" the Iraq War..........and even worse, he's saying these things to our guys in the field. Al Jazeera, the insurgent murderers, and John Kerry team up to bash...

    Rove Eyes Election '04 Dogfight By Anne Q. Hoy WASHINGTON BUREAU January 23, 2003 Washington - The upcoming presidential race is going to be a closely fought battle reminiscent of the contested 2000 presidential contest, senior White House adviser Karl Rove said yesterday. Rove said a potential conflict with Iraq could inject an element of uncertainty into the race and, while he did not specifically note the defeat of President George W. Bush's father to Bill Clinton in 1992, he said wars can lead to a president's defeat.

    The results of the midterm elections last November greatly saddened Barbra Streisand. But within three days of that awful event she had picked herself up, duster herself off, and sat down to tell us why the Democrats lost. Like the blond who stares at the red arrow on a subway map, "You are here," and asks "How do it know?" we are bound to ask, "How does Yentl know why the Democrats lost?" More, we want to ask her why her analysis is in terms of why the Democrats lost rather than why the Republicans won. Ms. Streisand views elections...
