Ron Paul’s Excellent Minnesota Adventure

Now, in case you have missed the Ron Paul story, he is the wiry little, gray haired, congressman, who challenged the big boys in the nationally televised Republican debates earlier this year.  It was quite a show.

McCain Camp Says No to Billy Graham

Now, it turns out, that the John McCain campaign is so spooked by preachers that it doesn’t want to meet with Dr. Billy Graham.  Which sort of makes his rapprochement with the evangelicals a little difficult, wouldn’t you say? Remember Brian Jacobs, the George W. Bush activist who helped me put together a meeting betweenContinue reading “McCain Camp Says No to Billy Graham”

Robespierre wants the names of those conspirators !

Re: Yesterday’s blog. Now I am getting a lot of unwanted  e-mails trying to identify the former governor and senator that I referred to in my last blog.  No, I am not trying to protect elitists in the Republican Party, just being courteous.  If I had thought it would help anyone to mention their namesContinue reading “Robespierre wants the names of those conspirators !”
