My personal musings about anything that gets on my radar screen--heavily dominated by politics.


Quick Hits 

--McCain Seizes the Initiative

"What a welcome change it would be were Presidential candidates in our time to treat each other and the people they seek to lead with respect and courtesy as they discuss the great issues of the day, without the empty soundbites and media-filtered exchanges that dominate our elections. It is in the spirit of President Kennedy's and Senator Goldwater's agreement, in the spirit of the politics of change, and to do our country good, that I invite you to join me in participating in town hall meetings across the country to discuss the most important issues facing Americans."

This got precious little coverage on the evening news, but McCain has got to get on every Sunday program and extend the invitation and start to chide Obama "the eloquent" for his fear of an uncontrolled environment.

--You Are Known By The Company You Keep

If the inner circle is made up of an ingrate cynic, a racist, a suspended priest, and a convicted felon, does it make sense that the person in the center of the maelstrom is a middle-of-the-road uniter?

I think not. But you keep up that meme, there, Senator O.

--There's Some Courage and Leadership

Bill Ritter waited until Tuesday night--after Obama had reached the magic number--to endorse Obama for President.

Which is still better than Rep. Salazar, Sen. Salazar, and would-be Senator Udall, all of whom waited until Wednesday morning to endorse.

That's just the kind of foresight and political courage Coloradans deserve.

--Colorado Not Proving To Be Such Wonderful Hosts for Obama's Beatification

Instead of the 24 venues that were skedded to host delegations on the eve of the Democratic National Convention, delegates will boogie together in one big giant donkey-do likely inside the Colorado Convention Center.

Pardon me while I . . .

heh heh heh.
