The chief of village does not see the devil.

The erosion of civility in American politics is depressing. The health care reforms have given an excuse for extremists to show their “disapproval” of being governed by a president of color. When former President Jimmy Carter pointed out the racist character of the protesters in Washington D.C. last week, as usual, many people have reacted, […]

Definitely, Dick Cheney is succeeding in shifting the attention to be on him. This week he said that he would choose Rush Limbaugh over Colin Powell. It is Cheney’s right to choose one person over another. The media should at least give him that right. Today Rush Limbaugh repaid his favor to Dick Cheney. The […]

The young cannot teach tradition to the old.

Conservative activists on Saturday named former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney the winner of a poll for best 2012 GOP presidential candidate. Bobby Jindal, the new star of the Republican party, came in second place — but ahead of Sarah Palin. Even though this poll doesn’t mean anything, it shows that the Republican party is still […]

Good things sell themselves; those that are bad have to be advertised.

Apparently the Republican party has found a way to improve their image as the old White racist party with conservative values. More and more, two fresh faces symbolizing change are rising in the media: Bobby Jindal (Governor of Louisiana and an Indian-American) and Michael Steele (an African American). When you listen to the old Southern […]
