“Here We Go Again”

This article has been published at Huffington Post on 12/6.

************************

Republicans are hoping to find a star for 2016.

It’s still three years before the next Presidential election but already potential candidates are maneuvering for a shot as the party’s top contender.

Not so long ago, maybe three years or so, a number of Republican politicians unfurled their plumage — strutting before the party hoping to be the choice for the coveted award at the Republican National Convention — the GOP nominee for the Presidency.

They all pretended to have what it takes to become the top dog. But the field eventually narrowed, settling on the ‘strongest’ in an extremely weak field, Mitt Romney.

So here we go again!

“A Delusional Freshman Senator”

This is the 99th article published on The Huffington Post. Coming Soon, “One-Hundred and Counting”

*************************

A Southern Senator redefines insanity!

There has been an insidious craziness in the House of Representatives for an insufferable while and, until a few years ago, it was comical.

During that time the Senate, though outwardly intransigent and equally ineffective, had remained relatively sane — at least compared to the House.

But, that has changed dramatically. The lunacy, once confined to the House, has now crept into the August body!

Enter Ted Cruz. Read the rest of this entry »

“Gun Powder and Testosterone”

This article is posted on The Huffington Post and can be read at Huff Post by clicking on the link.

**************************

Who loves the smell of gun powder in the morning?

We’ve heard the cliché that gasoline and alcohol don’t mix. The same should be said of gun powder and testosterone.

Both mixtures have deadly implications and deserve scrutiny wherever and whenever these elements are combined.

Though W.C. Fields once joked, “They say gasoline and alcohol don’t mix…actually, they do, they just don’t taste good,” the combination of gun powder and testosterone is no joking matter. Neither is the current combination of powerful weaponry and over stimulated and paranoid males.

So is the answer to take away all the guns?

“An Eye Doctor with Tunnel Vision!”

Tea Party candidate, Rand Paul, not exactly what this country needs!

On Tuesday the Tea Party declared victory in Kentucky when their preferred candidate, Rand Paul, defeated Mitch McConnell’s chosen candidate, Trey Grayson, in the Republican Senatorial Primary.

Now the Republican Party must deal with a candidate they didn’t support. One that is really a Libertarian—a Republican with myopia. As the Republican Party struggles to redefine their platform and to develop a message that a mixed up base can believe in, they have the Tea Party to contend with. Paul soundly defeated Kentucky’s Secretary of State with 59% of the vote to Grayson’s 35%. Paul will now face Attorney General, Jack Conway, who narrowly defeated Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo, 44% to 43% in their primary contest.

A Rasmussen telephone survey of 500 likely voters, taken just one day after the election, shows Paul leading Conway by a margin of 25% (59% to 34%).

But is Paul the candidate for Kentucky? Is he for the kind of change this country needs?
