The Moment of the Singularity is Upon Us January 30, 2006, 4:55 pm

Last week it came out that Cindy Sheehan threatened Sen. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) that she would run against her if she didn’t join in filibustering Judge Alito. It worked on poor ol’ DiFi as she did a complete 180 and announced, after previously saying she saw no reason to, her support for a filibuster; however, it created the spark, nay, a brief moment in time, a split-second really where Cindy Sheehan supporters went from enjoying this gesture to thinking this would be a great thing to actually happen.

This is it folks. This is that millionth of second of silence that precedes a thermonuclear warhead before it destroys all life within 50 square miles.

This is the singularity.

And the best part is that they have a WEBSITE!! Man, I’m getting shivers. More cowbell, people, more cowbell!!

Without further ado, I give you Cindy For Senate.


Blogger Campaign Underway to Influence Upcoming House Elections January 13, 2006, 2:57 pm

In light of the recent lobbying and pork barrel spending scandals, several prominent right of center bloggers have started a new campaign to ensure that the House elects a majority leader that will steer the Republican Party back to its principles of fiscal responsibility and limited government. Although the previous Porkbusters campaign was met with limited success, it far surpassed my own expectations in that it injected the wasteful spending issue into the national discourse and forced both congressmen and senators alike to talk about it and go on record with their opinions. Of course, that campaign is by no means over and will most likely pick up steam again as we head into elections in November. Of course both of these stories testify to the ever increasing power of blogs to shape and form opinion and increase the democratization of our political process. I gladly add my support to this latest effort as the House sorely needs new and strong leadership that will return the Republican Party to its roots and original purpose.
