Where in the World? 4/29/12 Edition

By | April 29th, 2012|2012 election, Politics, Presidential Campaigns, Republicans|4 Comments

Things are hopping in this election year, so I'm not always writing here as much as I'd like to. But I've still got my pundit hat on.  Some other places I was hanging out this week? I was over at POLITICO's Arena with my political strategist hat on talking about the imminent end of New [...]

Super Tuesday and Mitt Romney: Looking for Love in All the Wrong Places?

By | March 7th, 2012|2012 election, Politics, Presidential Campaigns, Republicans|0 Comments

Mitt Romney was the big winner on Super Tuesday.  Or was he? Yes, he placed first in six of the ten state races. Yes, he came out on top in Ohio, the most watched contest of the night. But it's hard for anyone who's objective about the primaries and caucuses to say Romney got the [...]

Super Tuesday, Here We Come!

By | March 3rd, 2012|Mom Vote 2012|0 Comments

Buckle up, because the biggest day of the 2012 primary season is almost upon us.  Ten states will decide on Tuesday, March 6 who their favorite Republican candidate is.  Usually at least by Super Tuesday, we know which way the political winds are blowing.  But as with the Democratic party in 2008, things are still [...]

What Will Those Republicans Say Next?

By | February 28th, 2012|2012 election, Democrats, Politics, Presidential Campaigns, Republicans|2 Comments

As we head into the presidential primaries in Arizona and Michigan, I sense many voters' heads are spinning over what the candidates believe are vote-getting discussions. Rick Santorum says President Obama is a "snob" for wanting all American kids to have a chance at college and that he "almost threw up" when he [...]

Will Newt Gingrich Get a Second Date with Women Voters?

By | February 1st, 2012|2012 election, Politics, Presidential Campaigns, Republicans|0 Comments

South Carolina women loved Newt Gingrich. Women voters in Florida? Not so much. The results of the Florida Republican presidential primary show that while the ladies in the Palmetto State liked what Gingrich had to say as a candidate, the gals in the Sunshine State wanted another candidate to take to the general election prom.

By | January 24th, 2012|Mom Vote 2012|Comments Off on Mom Vote 2012 — Who Are the GOP Candidates?

Who are the current Republican candidates running for president?  The list is changing every week, as some of the candidates we thought we'd see through more of the primary season have dropped out.  We've said goodbye to Michele Bachmann, Rick Perry and Jon Huntsman.  But here's what you need to know about the remaining candidates [...]

Newt Gingrich: Just Swinging Through the Campaign

By | January 20th, 2012|2012 election, Politics, Presidential Campaigns, Republicans|3 Comments

So the conservative right is coming to the defense of Newt "I will always defend traditional marriage" Gingrich -- the man who tried to bring down President Bill Clinton over the Monica Lewinsky affair while at the same time telling his wife who'd just been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis that he either wanted an "open [...]

Newt Gingrich’s Very Bad, Horrible, Wonderful, No Good Day

By | January 19th, 2012|2012 election, Politics, Presidential Campaigns, Republicans|5 Comments

It was the best of time and it was the worst of times for Newt Gingrich today.  I couldn't help thinking both of that line from A Tale of Two Cities with the political events of the day, as well as doing a little riff in this post's title from Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, [...]

There is just TOO much going on in the world of presidential politics to weigh in on all the pundit-y goodness that could surely fill pages of this site!  But what's a girl to do when the whole world of Republican politics looks like it's turning upside down?  I was all set to [...]

Two GOP New Hampshire Debates in Five Minutes

By | January 9th, 2012|2012 election, Politics, Presidential Campaigns, Republicans|0 Comments

This was a big weekend for political junkies. Two, count 'em, two GOP debates took place back-to-back on the eve of the Republican New Hampshire primary election scheduled this coming Tuesday. After Republican front runner Mitt Romney barely won the Iowa Caucuses by a mere eight votes, observers were confident that Saturday night's [...]

Newt Gingrich Has Got Scrooge & the Grinch Beat!

By | December 6th, 2011|Politics, Presidential Campaigns, Republicans, Uncategorized|4 Comments

What do you get if you cross Ebeneezer Scrooge and The Grinch Who Stole Christmas?  Why, Newt Gingrich, of course! Well, at least in demeanor, if not in actual appearance.  You may recall that old Ebeneezer was a man who thought eating too much was a wasteful sin and the former Speaker of the House [...]

Sarah Palin’s Political Tornado

By | June 5th, 2011|Democrats, Republicans, Women in Politics|6 Comments

The majority of Sarah Palin watchers seem certain that there is no way, no how the half-term governor from Alaska is going to run  for President in 2012.  Nu-uh, isn't gonna happen, totally sure of it.   She's just going on the road with her motorcycle helmet and personally branded tour bus to stay in the [...]

The GOP: ISO or SOL?

By | May 18th, 2011|Republicans|2 Comments

Just as in the world of dating and matrimony, some political character traits or policy positions are deal breakers.   Smoking, chewing tobacco and an addiction to the current version of guy buddy movies? If I were still in the land of dating, any one of those would make me send a guy packing. When it [...]

Newt Gingrich Knows He Can’t Win. He Just Doesn’t Want to be Forgotten.

By | May 11th, 2011|Presidential Campaigns, Republicans|2 Comments

Newt Gingrich will never be the President of the United States. I sound pretty sure of that, don't I?  Do I know something the other pundits don't?  Do I have some nugget of inside information that's tipped me off to a secret Gingrich ruse? Sort of.  The secret is this -- Newt Gingrich is Newt [...]

Michele Bachmann: Silly Balloon Head or Serious as a Heart Attack?

By | April 21st, 2011|Democrats, Feminism, Making Our Political Voices Heard, Moms & Politics, Presidential Campaigns, Republicans, Women in Politics|5 Comments

I don't like Sarah Palin or Michele Bachmann as potential 2012 presidential candidates.  No big surprise there.  But I like Charles Krauthammer as a pundit even less, especially when he takes the easy way out on an argument.  So when he jumps on the Karl Rove bandwagon of bad-mouthing women candidates because they're not "serious" [...]

I loved it when Tyra Banks said it to take on the people who wanted to lessen her accomplishments by criticizing how she looked in a bathing suit.
