Jay Leno on Obama stimulus that's actually worked

"You know, it's hard to believe President Obama has now been in office for a year. And you know, it's incredible. He took something that was in terrible, terrible shape, and he brought it back from the brink of disaster -- The Republican party."

Air America Radio 'ceases operations'

First, Scott Brown's stunning upset victory for Senate in Massachusetts, now this -- Air America Radio is filing for bankruptcy, according to CBS News. Gee, what a pity.

Obama Era, The

Transitory period in American history generally understood to have lasted just less than a year, from Barack Obama taking office as president on Jan. 20 2009 to then-state senator Scott Brown's stunning upset victory in winning Senate seat once held by Edward Kennedy, widely remembered as the high water mark of Obama's presidency ...

Democrats determined to set record for most asinine statements in single campaign

This today from Congressman Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., and chairman of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee --
"Why would you hand the keys to the car back to the same guys whose policies drove the economy into the ditch and then walked away from the scene of the accident?” “For the Republicans to say vote for us and bring back the guys who got us into this mess in the first place, I don’t think it’s a winner.”

Politico: Brown surges to 9-point lead

... as reported here, based on an InsiderAdvantage poll.

This will less than 13 hours before the polls open tomorrow.

The not-so-fat lady could soon be crooning.

New Coakley ad claims Scott Brown is Bill Buckner

And yes, this is satire

Scott Brown pulls ahead by 4 in latest poll

... as reported tonight by the Boston Herald.

Try not to hit the sidewalk on your way down, Martha.

The photo that might cost Coakley the election

There she is, folks, the top law enforcement official from the state of Massachusetts watching as one of her goons shoves a Weekly Standard reporter to the sidewalk outside a Washington restaurant Tuesday night after Coakley attended a fundraiser with health care lobbyists hoping to buy her vote for ObamaCare.

The reporter's offense? Daring to ask Coakley a question.

The goon in question? An Obama nominee, no less, named Michael Meehan. And the man just over Meehan's right shoulder? Coakley's predecessor as Bay State attorney general, Tom Reilly.

This coming only one day after Coakley ran an attack ad with an image of Rush Limbaugh giving what appears to be a Nazi salute -- in other words, conservatives are Nazis. Followed within 24 hours by this thuggery.

These people are beyond shame.

Woodrow Wilson was Jewish?

"We had Woodrow Wilson make the world safe for democracy. He was the first neo-con. We've been living with that." -- Ron Paul on MSNBC's Rachel Maddow Show, Jan. 6

New Year's resolution -- blog more here!

I've been good about past NY resolutions and plan to follow through on this one. Too much happening in too consequential an era to let pass without shouting from this rooftop. Happy New Year!
