  1. It's easy to call this one for USC in a rout, but I'm gonna be pulling for the Nittany Lions...
  2. The main article can be found here. Lest this forum turn into an echo chamber, I thought it might be interesting for some of you to interact with the points brought forth in this essay.
  3. So maybe something more akin to the "Jesusland" parody that followed the '04 election: You might also want to look into the Nine Nations of North America
  4. It's later than you think. With the MSM in his back pocket and having tingles run up their collective legs, it shouldn't be too difficult. Watch for every minor accomplishment to be lionized and every misstep attempt to be ignored (see: Clinton, Bill). This is going to be the antithesis of the Bush presidency.
  5. I think he, like Clinton, will spend 4 (or 8) years attempting to ensure his legacy... take that how you will. ;)
  6. That's the thing... I'm not sure if it's a case of naivete, ignorance, or just downright arrogance but I don't think Obama truly understood the divisive nature of the Democrat party. While the Republican camp has a broad spectrum of adherents, ranging from the more secular "libertarian" wing of the party to the theonomic "religious right" contingent, there is generally more of an approach of forsaking the petty skirmishes to win the broader war for Republicans than the Democrats. In recent years (and especially those spent in DC) I have observed the pervasive mindset of entitlement amongst the Democrats... such that each frond of the fringe thinks themselves the most vital aspect of the Democrat party. The Black Caucus says: "The candidate better make us happy or we won't turn out!" The Planned Parenthood/Abortionist lobby says: "The candidate better make us happy or we won't turn out!" The Feminazi NOWers say: "The candidate better make us happy or we won't turn out!" The GLBTers say: "The candidate better make us happy or we won't turn out!" So, candidate Obama promises each group the moon and is everything to everyone... he speaks the typical liberal agitprop, appeals to the moderates with a "reform" meta-narrative (see: "change") and even throws the evangelicals a bone by buddying-up with the current religious rock star (see: Nixon/Reagan and Billy Graham). As a result of all this (and enough weary Republicans sitting this one out) the Democrat candidate wins... and now it's time to pay the check. This recent flap is but a harbinger of what's to come.
  7. Interesting... the Left-Wing of the Democrat party seems obsessed with snatching defeat from the jaws of possible victory with this cannibalistic fervor to impose a narrowly-defined Leftist paradigm upon Obama's presidency: WSJ article Yep... this is gonna be a helluva four years. :thumbsup:
  8. So does this mean 4 years of McCoy/Shipley-type media manlove for Garrett Gilbert and Cade McCrary? :smirk:
  9. Great kid from a fine family, wish him the best of luck in all his endeavors at Texas State... :thumbsup:
  10. Meh... that's like saying that Strychnine is about as lethal as poison. :thumbsup:
  11. Hey man, no prob. I wasn't brushing you back or anything, I was sincerely curious - as I hadn't heard anything along similar lines since Dave Campo was in Dallas. ;)
  12. Good point... :hmm: I for one would like to take this opportunity to credit Greg Davis for whatever he did to put Colt McCoy in a position to take the entire Offense on his shoulders and will Texas to an excellent 11-1 season. Great job, Coach Davis.
  13. Heh heh heh... either you're far more clever than I thought, of you just left yourself wide open.
