TCJ Honorary Plaque of Fail: Joe”I Have A Top Secret Bunker In My Basement!” Biden

Joe Biden swapping secrets with his waitor at dinner last week.

Joe Biden swapping secrets with his waitor at dinner last week.

Man, that Joe Biden is a card.  He just can’t seem to get it right, can he?  Joe’s been known for his gaffes over the years; in fact, there are several lists of them circulating around the interweb.  And while I usually think they are hilarious and innocent, this one’s got me a little worried about ole Joel.

Apparently, Joe told a group of friends he was having dinner with about the bunker, which held former Vice President Dick Cheney during and after 9/11.  The bunker is supposed to be top secret to ensure the safety of the VP should anything happen to the president.  Well of course, Joe couldn’t handle a little secret and now the world knows where he’ll be if the U.S. should face a 9/11-like attack in the future.  If his blunder results in the relocation of the secret hideout, it’ll be a real shame considering that in 2002 the bunker was apparently fixed up with the latest epuipment to sustain the VP and his staff after officials saw that it was not fully prepared to handle a crisis situation like 9/11.  Of course, Barack was not at all happy about this incident.  I don’t agree with anything he says, but at least he’s got enough sense not to leak top secret information.

Surely Joe can learn to keep his mouth shut before he leaks something even MORE secret than TOP secret.  But look on the bright side: Unless the people running top secret government stuff have learned their lessons, we can sit tight until Joe is briefed on the happenings at Area 51!  We’re surely in for a treat when he spills that.  And until then, I am honored to present Vice President Joe Biden with The Conservative Journal Honorary Plaque of Fail.

Video of the Day: “Blame It”, Barack Obama Style

Sorry again for such little posting over the past week; it wasn’t a tough few days!  Everything should be back to normal now.

Here’s a funny video that Totally Sketch made.  It’s a remake of Jamie Foxx’ latest song “Blame It”.  Once again, their ability to find actors that are perfect for the characters is amazing.

Saxby Chambliss Off to a Nice Start!

The Georgia runoff between Saxby Chambliss and his democrat challenger Jim Martin in his senate race.  No one’s called a winner yet, but Saxby has a pretty large lead over Martin right now, so things are looking good.  I’ll update as I get more information as the night progresses.  Now, all we need is Norm Coleman to win in Minnesota, where he is currently ahead of nut-job Al Franken by a few hundred votes.  Ultimately, I expect both Republicans to win these races.

Joe The Plumber’s Next Venture: An Epic Novel

Joe the Plumber shall plumb no more!

Joe the Plumber shall plumb no more!

Well, while the above title may be nonsense, it does bare some truth.  According to the New York Times, Joe has a book deal.  The title of the book? “Joe the Plumber: Fighting for the American Dream”.  I think it’s great that Joe will be capitalizing on his recent fame.  He has a great cause and a great point that some people still don’t understand:  Obama’s tax policies are socialist.  And while I don’t particularly think he will carry out those policies (during his first term, at least), it’s still on the back burner of his mind, which bothers me.  But regardless, Joe’s book will surely be a success with the conservatives, and those that don’t like Obama.  I’m sure that I’ll buy it, I tend to pounce on the oppurtunity to buy any book that’s even partially political.  That’s all the information I have on it now, but if I should hear anything else I’ll be sure to report.

Thanks for reading, please leave a comment below!  And if you have any further info on this subject, let us know!

Getting to Know the Administration: Senior Advisor in the White House David Axelrod

David Axelrod, Chief Advisor in the White House

David Axelrod, Chief Advisor in the White House

The latest confirmed staff member is Obama’s former chief campaign strategist, David Axelrod.  He has been chosen to serve as the Senior Advisor in the White House.  But just who is this guy?  This is the second installment of the “Getting to Know the Administration” series.

At the age of 27, Axelrod began writing for the Chicago Tribune as a political columnist.  After his time there, and a successful campaign for Paul Simon, he opened a political consulting firm, Axelrod & Associates.  He played a key part in many campaigns mayoral campaigns in Chicago, and eventually worked his way on to the national stage with John Edwards unsuccessful 2004 campaign.  Also worth noting, he worked with the new Chief of Staff, Rahm Emanuel, on his 2006 House of Representatives race.  In 2008 he was names chief strategist and media advisor in Obama’s campaign for president.  He helped orchastrate the “Change” theme, and was responsible for many of the Obama campaign’s internet advertising.

This is a much safer choice than Rahm Emanuel.  Rahm is a lot for most handle, being extremely outspoken, aggressive, and not to mention severely partisan.  Axelrod however, is calm and soft spoken.  And, while he is certainly to the left, he’s going to be accepted more by conservatives, or at least that’s how I see it.  Most around him call him mild-mannered, and as political advisor Bill Daley put it, he is “not a screamer, like most”.  So, while he still hasn’t chosen a conservative staff member (or really even a moderate one), this choice will be more well recieved by the cosnervatives.  But then again, the vast majority won’t know (or care) who these staff members are when it all comes down to it.

Video of the Day: Man Arrested Because of McCain/Palin T-shirt

This is almost funny.  The guy was not doing anything wrong at all, and he is approached by officers that ask him to leave the area.  The official police report claims he was displaying disorderly conduct and public drunkeness.  Bystanders, however, have a different story.  They say the man was asked to leave because of his shirt, and when he said he didn’t want to cause any trouble they man-handled and forced him into the police car.  I know it won’t happen, but every one of those officers needs to go.

Here’s the video:

Getting to Know the Administration: Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel

As we all know, Rahm Emanuel has been chosen as Barack Obama’s Chief of Staff.  But just who is this guy?  This is the first part in a series that help you get to know each person that makes their way into the Obama administration.

Rahm Emanuel was appointed as Bill Clinton’s director of the finance committee during his 1992 run.  He was a key part in getting fundraising events scheduled for then governor of Arkansas, Bill Clinton.  Upon Clinton’s victory, he bacame one of his senior advisors.  He was a key part in orchastrating the Clintons’ universal healthcare attempts in the early years, which we all know were massive disasters (more reason why Obama SHOULD NOT even attempt his.).  After the Clinton Presidency, he ran for House in Chicago successfully, and stayed in that position until he was selected by Obama as chief of staff.

His attitude has earned the nickname “Rahm-bo” through the years (It’s rumored that he once mailed rotting fish to a coworker that he had parted ways with) , and is very liberal.  His voting record is 100% pro-choice (meh.) and he takes the liberal route on just about all social issues.

I don’t like the guy.  If Obama plans to “govern from the center”, his staff is going to need to be a little more centrist, or at least more center-left.  Let’s take a look:  So far we have Barack Obama (most liberal senator in the U.S.), Joe Biden (3rd most liberal senator in the U.S.), and Rahm Emanuel (a hard left liberal who mails rotting fish to people, and is a strong supporter of universal healthcare.  The same thing that failed miserably in the early Clinton years.).  Hopefully the next few appointed will be a bit more moderate!

Breaking News: Early Exit Polling Is In!

I hate to get too excited, but things are looking good for us right now.  The latest exit polling numbers are in and while most show Obama leading, you will be thrilled by the small margin.  Especially since it is a known fact that exit polls ALWAYS favor the democrats.  Right now we’re showing Obama with only 4-point lead in Pennsylvania, 2 points in Virginia, 1 point in Florida and Ohio, and McCain is actually 2 points ahead in North Carolina.  If the trend holds like it was in 2004 when the exit polls showed Kerry up by a good margin then the McCain victory we dream of may very well become a reality.  Everyone needs to get out and vote though!  There is still time in most states!  I’ll be back every few minutes to update everone.  All we can do is pray and hope for the best!

Election Eve: My Final Prediction

I can’t believe the time is come.  Tomorrow is the day that all of this anxiousness and uncertainty comes to a screeching hault, and I am either going to be the happiest I’ve been about a president in a long time, or the most upset I’ve ever been about a president.  Ever.  But that aside, here is my final prediction for how the Electoral College will go:

final-prediction

While a bunch of my liberal friends would call this scenario “ridiculous”,  I think it’s certainly do-able.  I even think McCain could see a resurgence in Colorado if things break his way.  Hopefully I’m not too far off in my estimates, it’s only a matter of time.  Get out and vote!  McCain/Palin 2008!

Things Are Looking Up!

I’ve thought McCain was going to win since he picked Sarah Palin as his V.P.  And while I would be lying if I said I didn’t have my doubts at some points between then and now, I have been confident the American people would deliver.  Let’s take a look at what’s going McCain’s way in the closing days:

The latest solid voter findings are in, and they look good for McCain.  American’s living in Israel voted and McCain won in a landslide; 76% to 24%!  Now I know this is not a huge amount of voters, but the obvious benefit is that the American Jewish population will love this if they do see it (they’ll have to watch FOX, no one else is going to report this much), and they make up a decent portion of voters in Florida, which is a key state.  But the more subtle benefits are even greater:  46% of registered democrats living in Israel say they voted for McCain, while only 2% of registered conservatives voted for Obama.  If this trend holds true on Tuesday, we could see McCain take this election by a larger margin than anyone would have predicted.

Barack is campaigning in Iowa.  This is substantial because the latest polls are giving him a double digit lead.  Now obviously his internal polls are showing something different, because common sense would say that if you are leading by double digits why on earth would you spend time in a state 2 days before an election?  On top of that, the McCain campaign has said that its a “dead tie” in Iowa.

Pennsylvania.  The latest, most reliable public polls are showing a mere 4 point lead for Barack.  This coming after he had double digit leads as recently as a week ago, according to those same polls.  I can’t imagine what the internal polls are now saying for this one.  I standby the statement I made a week or two ago that McCain will win Pennsylvania.

The latest Zogby poll actually puts McCain AHEAD by 1 point.  I know that a one point lead is not much, but it’s something.  It just shows that McCain is truly gaining ground nationally.  Especially considering that same poll has had Obama ahead by double digits in the past two weeks.

These are just a few of the highlights of the last few days.  Hopefully this trend will continue and I’ll have some more things to be happy about real soon!
