Aloha, Turdblossom?

By | August 14th, 2007|Democrats|14 Comments

As our evil villain rides slowly off into the sunset, the townspeople breathe a collective sigh of relief."Our town will be safe now that he's gone," announces the sheriff, as the setting sun glints off his lawman's badge. Everyone cheers and heads back to their little homesteads, feeling safe and secure in the knowledge that [...]

is "mother's milk" trumping the mommy-blogger?

By | August 3rd, 2007|Uncategorized|5 Comments

I'm David Wescott, the political hack/PR flack who blogs about blogging at It's Not a Lecture, and I'm so grateful to PunditMom for letting me borrow her soapbox today.One of the things I do is track the issues-based discussions of various segments of the blogosphere, and I was struck by PunditMom's recent post about the [...]

Elizabeth Edwards for President

If you want straight answers to straight questions, then Elizabeth Edwards is your gal.After hearing her speak at last week's BlogHer conference, I know if she was the one running for president, she would be getting my vote -- hands down.Not only is she exquisitely tuned in to the issues many of us think are [...]

A Different Measure

By | July 11th, 2007|Republicans|4 Comments

So many of us are looking for ways to distinguish among the over-crowded field of Presidential candidates.The hopefuls of each major party have so little to separate them on the issues, each one trying to yell a little louder to convince us that they can be the inspirational standard-bearers we should follow.Occasionally, though, we catch [...]

Are We Hillary's Peeps?

By | July 10th, 2007|Making Our Political Voices Heard|11 Comments

Cross-posted from Work It, Mom!Yes, Hillary is ahead of her opponents in some of the polls -- at the moment. And the reason she's ahead is because more Democratic women voters favor her as a presidential candidate than any of the men of her party who are running. But take a closer look, and there's [...]

The Real Question is 'Why?'

By | July 9th, 2007|Making Our Political Voices Heard|2 Comments

I'm midway through an interesting book called If They Only Listened to Us: What Women Voters Want Politicians to Hear. Melinda Henneberger, a contributing writer at The Huffington Post, traveled around the country interviewing a variety of women to get their input on what's important to them politically.For political junkie like me, it's a great [...]

Hillary — Focus!

By | July 2nd, 2007|Democrats|9 Comments

Hillary Clinton is not doing herself any favors by: (1) having a campaign for a theme song; (2) choosing a theme song by Celine Dion (or as Kathy Griffin would say, "seh-LEEN DEE-on!); or, (3) by announcing her decision of that song by making a Soprano's ending spoof.All three of those things make me cringe, [...]

And the Winner Is …

... in a contest between Elizabeth Edwards and Ann Coulter, I know who I'm putting my money on.But I've been wondering what, if anything, the Dems can learn from a flame-thrower like Ann Coulter.I've written about that over at PunditMom's Spin Cycle today, so I hope you'll check it out.Is it time for the Democrats [...]

Generous With Time, But Not With Money??

By | June 19th, 2007|Uncategorized|4 Comments

An interesting essay on The Huffington Post last week made me pause.Its topic? The phenomenon that women voters are more than willing to volunteer their time and energy to help get candidates elected, but are not so quick with their financial support to help achieve that goal.Of course, that is what's going to get our [...]
