Recommended Reading

Andrew Greeley has written some concerns about the Democratic Party and its current location, which is lodged somewhere between a rock and a hard place.

Once again the Democrats seem determined to steal defeat from the jaws of victory.

Reading on, you will find his reasoning to be with some (if not much) merit. When special interest is pitted against another special interest or a traditional minority against another, one of them will lose. Neither one will be happy and may simply take their ball and go home.

The NY Times has a way of stirring the pot these days, as is evidenced by their further wedging of the race issue in the Democratic race.

The recent performance by the Times is well-known as they struggle for some kind of relevance, in a market that is watching them destroy what little reputation they have left. First, there was an attack on John McCain that was unsubstantiated. Now, there is the exploitation of Geraldine Ferraro and the spin on her recent comments about Barack Obama.

The Democrats, with help from the media, are headed for certain disaster; and they are going to need a miracle to unite this party after the convention, if they don't stop playing the cards they are currently playing.

Once again, Victor Davis Hanson has another column that resonates truth, logic, and rational thought. Be sure to give it a read when you get a moment.

As an aside, I will be doing some home improvement projects the next few days, so posting may be light. But do check in, as I will do what I can, with what time I will have. And as always, many thanks to all that read this blog.
