The angry conservative

This post in the Flash Report is loaded with all of the venom and spew that the hardcore conservative right has become.  It’s not OC, but a post on the OC-based Flash Report make it noteworthy.  It comes from Michael Der Manouel Jr., the chairman and co-founder of the Lincoln Club of Fresno.  His contention is…

Pot or Kettle, Rep. Hunter?

Remember the story earlier this month about some liberal bloggers hired by the John Edwards for President campaign who wrote what some had considered anti-Christian posts earlier in their blog-careers?  It caused mucho bloviation among the Right Wingers out there. Now news the San Diego congressman and presidential candidate Duncan Hunter has hired Dr. Henry…

Reservoir Dogs

This is sort of in response to the flap between the Obama/Hillary camps over David Geffin’s remarks (I love how the only time someone like Geffen is taken seriously by the GOP is when he’s critical of another Democrat…funny how that happens).

JFK’s “I am a Liberal” Speech 9/14/1960

I have a number of conservative friends who tell me if JFK were alive today, he’d be a conservative. I disagree. And for many conservatives, “Liberal” is a dirty word. Think of how Sean Hannity says it. Or Rush Limbaugh. Or Jon Fleischman for that matter. Below, you will find the text to John F.…

(Accused) Terrorist Loves the RNC

I had some fun with state assembly rep. Chuch DeVore recently over on OCBlog.net about his proposed legislation to prevent terrorists or those who support terrorist organizations from being state employees.  Basically, I think Chuck is worried about the next smoking gun in California might be a jihadist clerk in the DMV.  I have a…
