It's Official - "Republican" John McCain Is A Candidate For President

To no one's surprise, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) announced today that he is running for President of the United States. The problem is that Republican Republican-in-name-only McCain is running in the wrong party. McCain has absolutely no hope of occupying the West Wing of the White House as a Republican. He has told those of us in the conservative base of the Republican party to stick it where the sun don't shine on a host of issues but now wants, and desperately needs, our support. Fortunately, we're not as dumb as he looks.

Over the next few days, I will be delving into Senator McCain's positions on campaign finance, abortion, gun control, immigration, drilling for oil, tax cuts, supreme court nominees, and terrorist interrogations.

Stay tuned.

Don Ho Will Be Missed

Donald Tai Loy Ho, Hawaiian musician and entertainer, died yesterday. He was 76 years young.

(Rumor has it that Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton were going to boycott Hawaii unless he changed his name, but he died before any boycott could be arranged.)

Santa's Got A Brand New Bag

Jimmy Kimmel says that, in light of the Don Imus fuss, Santa Claus is considering changing his laugh to "Ha! Ha! Ha!" and I heard from a reliable source that Al Sharpton wants to take away his reindeer if he refuses.
