“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!

“Who’s Left, Santorum?”

This article has been posted at The Huffington Post. To view it on Huff Post click on the link.

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

The GOP is running out of presidential candidates.

Santorum won all three caucuses in early February defeating Mitt Romney by double digits in two of the states. With wins in Missouri, Minnesota, and Colorado, Santorum had gained momentum going into Maine.

Maine returned momentum to Romney after he beat Ron Paul in the state caucuses, albeit, by a mere 194 votes. But that victory has become controversial with the exclusion of three counties from the final vote totals‚ counties that may favor Ron Paul.

Next, are Arizona and Michigan, two important primaries preceding the significance Super Tuesday will have on the race to the nomination.

Who will have the momentum after Michigan and Arizona?

The Republican Sanatorium!

The longer they campaign, the crazier things get.

Watching the Republicans battle for the top spot in the nation is, not only comical, but agonizing.

A different leader emerges each week only to be cut down by scrutiny the next.

It was Santorum’s week for a sudden surge, in time to garner a piece of the GOP crown in Iowa. Santorum’s message resonated with Evangelical voters in the Hawkeye state and a tie with Mitt Romney was a victory for Santorum.

But, will New Hampshire voters embrace him?

“The Palinization of America”

My newest post is on The Huffington Post, posted 6/6/11. Read it at HuffPo by clicking on the link.

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

For many years America has been sliding into a dark abyss…

succumbing to the lowest common-denominator—spurning intelligence for ‘cool.’

As a result all areas of American life have changed, but not for the better. In fact, it is easier to be stupid than it is to become smart. And, unfortunately, America has embraced stupid.

Sarah Palin has somehow emerged at the vortex of this strange struggle—this negative storm. Perceived by some to be the answer for this country’s ills, she is, in fact, one of the causes.

This erosion was happening long before Palin burst onto the scene, but her presence has exposed the negative affects of the direction we’ve been heading for many years. The Palinization of America!

What exactly is Palinization?
