Hi Friends: This blog is only periodically active. However, I write nearly every day on two other blogs: and I hope you'll visit both. The material below was sent out today to my e-mail list, and it mentions both Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin. Again, thanks to those of you who keep coming back here.

Artemis March is a excellent writer with great insight into the "Obama Phenomenon." She's been a staunch defender of Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin, although I admit her defense of the latter sounds much more plausible to me than her defense of the former. That aside, her pieces on the campaign and post-election period (in places like NoQuarter and The New Agenda) are very worth reading. She truly understands Obama's appeal -- and it scares her to death. She's worth googling. Her insights also contain the core of a strategy for defeating Obama in 2012 when, yes my friends, he will be running for re-election. :"The dog ate my birth certificate."

"Those caught up in his [Obama's] rhetoric feel like they are part of the "we," and that they are going to be part of something big and wonderful together. Others of us get an unsettling sense that even when he says "we," it's all about him, quite singular. We don't sense individuals in a crowd relating to him (as we do, for example, when Hillary Clinton speaks), but a fused entity lost in him. He is not offering to serve them or fight on their behalf. He is proclaiming that they can become part of him. Many of us get an eerie chill because this is the kind of messianic promise made by cult leaders, not politicians. She says:

"And that's just the beginning of the diametrically opposed reactions to Obama that have deeply divided feminists, progressives, and Democrats, and pitted friends, family members, co-workers, neighbors, networks, interest group members and officials, former political allies, as well as demographic groups against one another. One of the things that keeps us so divided is that his devotees and even many of his converts seem to know so little about him yet consistently reject information that does not fit with their trusting view of him. Many pour out unprecedented-for "progressives"-nastiness, misinformation, and hatred to demean Hillary Clinton and then Sarah Palin, and to intimidate and even threaten those who don't agree with them. Their bullying has dominated campuses, caucuses, and the convention as well as the blogosphere and media. "Truth squads" aim to silence anything but unqualified admiration.

Hillary is No Sarah Palin

TOMORROW (WEDNESDAY) I'LL HAVE A COLUMN TITLED "HILLARY IS NO SARAH PALIN." It will appear first on two other blogs -- and -- but I'll also reprint it here. This column basically wound to an end after the election of 2008, but I realize it is still drawing a few visitors every day. I'd like to thank you for coming and reading. If you ever need to contact me, you can do so by e-mailing me at: Here's a sense of what tomorrow's "Hillary column" will look like.

Hillary Clinton has spent a lifetime accepting, rationalizing, and even defending (yikes) her husband's chronic adultery and abusive behavior toward women. Many Hillary Supporters are now spending their lives defending HRC's decision to value her career over her country. Sarah Palin is a woman who turned in her own Party's state chairman for ethics violations. Hillary Clinton has never done anything remotely comparable in her career. The sad thing is that most of Hillary's Supporters have much higher standards for themselves than they do for their tinsel heroine.

Historic Obama-Palin Contest Coming

Is this the woman that will derail Obama's effort to be a two-term President? One hopes so.

This particular blog came to an end after the election of Nov. 4, 2008, but I now am blogging regularly at two sites: and Until Jan. 20, 2009 (Inauguration Day, I'll be cross-posting pieces at those two sites. Beginning with the presidency of President Barack Hussein Obama the columns on stevemaloneygop will deal with the Obama Administration. There will be approximately four columns per week, sometime more.

On the DraftPalin2012, I will be writing approximately five-six times per week. Almost all the columns will deal with Gov. Sarah Palin and her historic candidacy for the U.S. presidency. Yes, as the saying goes, "She's in it to win it."

I hope you'll all visit both sites regularly. Thanks for stopping by!

Hillary Lets Down Supporters, Country

Thanks to the tens of thousands of people who visited this site. Managing this blog has been a fascinating experience. In the end, Hillary Clinton let down her Supporters -- and her Nation. She valued her career and her party over her nation. Bummer!

Apparently, in the election, as many as four million Hillary Supprters cast their ballots for McCain-Palin. That's a great start.

I hope you'll visit my ongoing sites, such as: and

My main effort over the next four years will be to ensure the election as POTUS of Gov. Sarah Heath Palin of Alaska. I hope you'll join me in that effort.

Sarah Palin and Hillary Clinton

Barack H. Obama will be our 44th President. Let's make sure our 45th is the woman below.

This particular blog will come to its "natural death" at the end of this week. Before that, however, I will write some more about a six-month-long experiment I had working with Hillary Supporters for McCain. Obviously, not enough of them voted for John McCain and Sarah Palin. However, at least 20% of the famous "18 million" DID in fact vote for McCain-Palin. That's a hefty number. Apparently, most of the Hillary Supporters for McCain recognize that "reform" of the Democratic Party is a fantasy. Millions of them now think of themselves as Independents, or even -- horror of horrors -- as Republicans. Good for them.

I'll write more on this subject later, but for now, I invite Hillary Supporters -- and everyone else -- to come to my new site: If you want to support Sarah in a 2012 race against Obama, please send me an e-mail with your first name, last name (or initial), state, and location. Send it to:

What do I think of Hillary Rodham Clinton? I believe she put career and Party ahead of Country. Her behavior since June 3 has been disgraceful. As Shakespeare's Falstaff put it, "Nothing lost save honor." She's a woman who lacks character and courage. Aside from that . . .

Sarah is Strong, Hillary Weak

"America, your deepest identity and truest character as a nation is revealed in the position you take towards the human person. The ultimate test of your greatness in the way you treat every human being, but especially the weakest and most defenseless ones." (Pope John Paul II)

This woman below, Gov. Sarah Palin, is strong in critical areas where Hillary Rodham Clinton is weak -- particularly ones related to character, integrity, and respect for human life. Thanks to Penny of Cincinnati for the superb photograph. See more of Penny's fine work at:

Is Palin the Next V-P?

Sarah Palin: Is this the face of America's next Vice President? (Note: Please visit -- and bookmark -- my new site by clicking on the following:

I expect Barack Obama to win the popular vote by perhaps three million ballots. However, that doesn't mean John McCain has no chance to win the presidency. How could that happen? (Obama apparently will win California by two million votes; he will win NY by almost one million. That will make the rest of the country roughly even. McCain is not competing in CA or NY.)

To emerge with a victory on Nov. 4, McCain needs to win Ohio, FL, PA, MN, NC, and VA. Other than that, we're in great shape. :-)

However, we have a chance of winning those five states. If we lose one, I prefer it to be VA. McCain has a narrow window, but narrow is better than a brick wall. If McCain pulls off a big upset in a state, please God, let it be CO!

Critical point: If you hear a lot Tuesday night about the "Wilder Effect," you are allowed to cheer and have a couple of drinks. That refers to the time when Doug Wilder, of marginal African-American descent, was ahead in the polls by 9 points for Gov. of VA. In fact, he ended up winning by just under ONE percent. People fib to pollsters for much the same reason they hang up on telemarketers.

I have a hunch Obama will get about 3-4% fewer votes (and McCain about 2-3% more) in battleground states than the polls suggest. If that doesn't happen, the Obaminable One probably wins. :-

When I need sources of optimism, I look back to the Dem. Primaries, where Obama was supposed to win NH big (and he lost rather badly) and come close in PA (where he lost b y almost 10 points). Must have been "the Wilder Effect," right?
