Site News

This past week brought many additions to The Conservative Journal, including:

  • The DUmmies Exposed Series, which highlights the crap that goes on at Democratic Underground, as well as other liberal websites.
  • Mail Bag, which highlights e-mails and comments worth a second look.
  • The presence of The Conservative Journal on many different blog ranking sites, all of which can be found on the top of the right sidebar.  This week, The Conservative Journal worked it’s way into the Top 10 of several of the ranking sites during the heat of the Meghan McCain saga.  I guess we reported on it the best here? 🙂
  • The WikiGate Project, which is aimed to find the conspirator of the campaign to rid Barack’s Wikipedia entry of anything not deemed 100% good.

Poll of the Day Results

Although the results are in, the polls aren’t closed; you can click on the title of the poll and cast your late ballot!

March 14th- Are You Liberal or Conservative?

  • This could be the most obvious poll that will ever be on the site, but here are the results:  77% of readers of The Conservative Journal are more conservative, while 23% identify more with liberal viewpoints.  To those 23% in the minority:  I’m glad you here!  Rally some more of liberal friends so we get some comment debates going!  Seriously though, thank you to all that voted and read The Conservative Journal!

March 15th- Whose Side of the Fued Are You On?

  • This results of this poll are a lot closer than I expected:  When asked whose side Conservative Journal readers were (Either Jim Cramer or Jon Stewart) on in their little feud, 53% sided with Jon Stewart, and 39% sided with Jim Cramer; with the remaining  8% having no opinion.  I voted for Jim Cramer because I think his show is funnier, but I wasn’t expecting many to vote for him.  Guess everyone agrees?

March 16th- Internet problems prevented a poll on this day.

March 17th- What Do You Think About Laura Ingraham’s Comments?

  • In this poll, 63% thought that Laura Ingraham crossed the line with her “plus-sized model” comment to Meghan McCain, 23% think America needs to lighten up, and the remaining 14% don’t care about either one of them enough to form an opinion.  Once again, on this one I went with Laura Ingraham crossing the line initially, though after hearing the full context of the comments I don’t think they were that bad.

March 18th- What Are Your Views on Abortion?

  • On this random issue, the vote was almost split exactly as the “Liberal or Conservative?” poll, with 74% siding with the more conservative “Pro-life” option, and the remaining 26% going with the generally liberal choice of “Pro-choice”.  Of course, I went “Pro-life” on this one.

March 19th- Do You Support Gay Marriage?

  • Looks like our readers are a little more moderate on this one:  61% voted against gay marriage, with the remaining 39% voting in favor of gay marriage.  Of course, I voted against.

March 20th- What Do You Think of Barack’s Special Olympics Comments?

  • We posted this before news of his apology, and 74% of those polled said that B.O. needed to apologize for his remarks, with the remaining 26% thinking that America needs to lighten up and laugh.  While I did vote that B.O. needed to apologize (glad he did do that), I generally side with America needing to lighten up.  For someone that campaigned on a platform of hope, change, and equality this was a low blow.

The Minnesota Senate Race Mess

Norm Coleman, Republican Incumbent

Al Franken, Democratic Comedian

Just like Florida in 2000, the state of Minnesota is gearing up for a recount.  Not for the presidential election, but rather its U.S. Senate Race between Norm Coleman and Al Franken.  Right now the margin is a mere 206 votes in favor of Coleman, who is the incumbent Republican senator.  They are now recounting the ballouts to ensure their accuracy.

This is going to be a huge mess, I can just see it now.  I’m sure there will be lawsuits, and both parties will scream “fraud!”.  We can only hope that Coleman turns up the winner, because we Republicans certainly don’t want to lose a senate seat to that nut job Franken.  I am personally very surprised this race is even close.  I can’t imagine how people justify voting for someone who would no doubt take his job in the senate as a joke.  He’s said before that if elected, his first action in senate would be to push for a “quickie impeachment” of Bush before his term ended.  I realize some people don’t like Bush and that he could never do that, but that’s just nonsense.  Imagine if a republican senator said he would push for a “quickie impeachment” of Obama after he is inaugarated.  There would be mass chaos, riots, and all kinds of horrible things.

So what do you think?  It’s time to voice your opinion in our poll:
