Joe Biden’s shining moment in last night’s debate

October 3rd, 2008 · 5 Comments

With all of “The Maverick” references used by Governor Palin last night, I thought that maybe I was tranported to my childhood years of watching too much Top Gun. Governor Palin definitely exceeded the expectations that everyone had for her given her dismal performance in recent network television interviews. She pretty much stuck to her […]

Why everyone should read a weekly or monthly news journal

September 25th, 2008 · 13 Comments

I know that these clips are making the rounds all over the internet, but I could find political science undergraduates who could answer the questions that Katie Couric asked Governor Palin about foreign policy and the economic crisis more coherently. Even Katie Couric commented today that, “She’s not always responsive when she’s asked questions. It […]

Looks like Palin hasn’t been studying her public policy!

September 25th, 2008 · 9 Comments

This is an interview that Palin did with Katie Couric yesterday. As many know, VP candidate Sarah Palin is not very media friendly, and it is becoming more painfully obvious why. The best part comes at the end when Couric asks her to provide some specific examples of where John McCain has pushed for more […]

So along with suspending the campaign, McCain also skipped out on the Letterman show, is trying to avoid the first presidential debate on Friday, […]

Obama takes a clear lead according to latest ABC News/WaPo Poll

September 23rd, 2008 · 7 Comments

I don’t pay attention to the polls on a daily basis because I’m a little skeptical of the polling methods and various samples. Also, when I randomly ask my Latino friends if they have ever received a call from Gallup, CNN, or the Washington Post, I find that none of us are ever polled. According […]

Looks like Sarah Palin wants what many of us already have — Brown Skin

September 16th, 2008 · 16 Comments

Actually, I caught this bit about Sarah Palin installing a tanning bed in the Alaska’s governor mansion yesterday, but it just illustrates the level of vanity and superficiality, which I recently addressed here with this woman. All of this is made more ironic when you consider that Senator McCain has been treated multiple times for melanoma. […]

Palin appeals to Latinas?

September 13th, 2008 · 4 Comments

A few days ago, I read Alisa Valdes-Rodriguez’s blog, where she addressed the very real possibility that the addition of Governor Sarah Palin to the McCain ticket may attract Latinas who were Hillary supporters and reluctantly became Obama supporters. Then yesterday, I read Ruben Navarrette’s column suggesting that because of Palin, McCain may have a […]

The Irony of Palin’s Criticism of Hillary Clinton

September 10th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Earlier this year, Governor Sarah Palin commented on Hillary Clinton’s candidacy and how women should not “whine” about the increased scrutiny of their actions. Palin then said that women should work harder and prove themselves to withstand the increased criticism and pressure from the media and public. You can hear the comments for yourself here: […]
