Dear loyal readers,

We have decided to close down the blog, as there’s plenty of work to be done before 2012. At the end of December, we’ll begin re-routing the domain to our new venture, whatever that may be. We thought we’d leave you with one last cartoon, many more can be found here.

All the best,

The Editors

Valerie Jarrett Says Obama Ready to ‘Rule’

November 10, 2008 by

Eh, “rule”?  Is this woman serious, or did she just make an innocent slip?  I guess we now get to find out in January…h/t Newsbusters.

UPDATE: A reader emails us this link to CNN Political Ticker.  Obama has apparently anointed Ms. Jarrett as his replacement in the U.S. Senate.  As far as we can tell (from a brief search of her background and credentials) Ms. Jarrett has no experience in elective office.

UPDATE II: Marathon Pundit wrote about Valerie Jarrett shortly after the election.

Rebuild The Party

November 9, 2008 by

Dear readers,

Please visit:

“Either we can spend the next several months — or years — trying to figure out what just happened, excusing our defeat away as a temporary blip or the result of a poor environment, and waiting for Barack Obama to trip up. Or we can refuse to take this defeat lying down, and start building the future of our party now.”
