Take That, Dolan

This is the first election in a while where I’ve seen a big chunk of my Church’s hierarchy throw in so blatantly for one candidate. So, how has the “never mind that social gospel, there’s a gay guy out to ruin your marriage and hand out birth control” thing worked out for the partisan bishops? […]

Quick Take

I can see the problem with these polls. Obviously, they are talking to too many people who will be voting for Barack Obama. They need to take some more time and look for more Mitt Romney voters. They are out there.

Credit Where Credit Is Due

Here’s Mitt Romney at the Cinton Global Initiative yesterday: I can actually imagine that guy as a decent president. Not one that I’d vote for necessarily, but one that takes complicated issues seriously. I’m not sure where that guy has been hiding. One thing though: foreign aid can spur private investment. Hmm.

Some of this is over what he regards as a personal slight from Barack Obama; some of it is because of Wałęsa’s stongly held social conservatism. Solidarność, the labor movement he once headed, doesn’t share Wałęsa’s enthusiasm for Romney. They […]

Quick Take

With Mitt Romney’s gaffes in Britain, I fear what jokes he’ll tell in Warsaw.

From Our Blatantly Obvious Desk

Those of you that have ended up on these fundraising e-mail lists are familiar with the shrill nature of these missives. The most minor gaffe is “shocking.” The most minor event is “devastating.” Every bit of news is “stunning.” With that in mind, here is the first paragraph of a fundraising e-mail I got from […]
