KaibCast Week in Review: You Didn’t Build That

Much of the past week’s KaibCasts were devoted to President Obama’s “You didn’t build that” remarks.  Check them out, especially Thursday’s program (which was probably my best for the week).

Monday’s KaibCast: Outsourcer-in-Chief

Host Josh Kaib returns from a lengthy break to discuss the dismal state of the economy, the debate about outsourcing that has engulfed the Presidential campaign, and news that Romney is considering Condoleezza Rice for VP.

Time to Dump Trump

Liberals and the media (is there a difference?) are freaking out about Mitt Romney’s political alliance with Donald Trump.  Suddenly they are alarmed that a politician would hang out with a controversial figure.

Not a guy who blew up buildings in the sixties, not a guy who spouted anti-American sermons in a church, but a man who questions the authenticity of Obama’s birth certificate.

I’ve been very clear about my opinion of the so-called “birther” movement.  I hosted an episode of my podcast during which I debunked many of the birther claims.  These people are delusional ingrates.  Some of them are mentally ill (I’m not a doctor, but I play one on my blog).

Why Texas Matters

The Texas U.S. Senate primary is the latest in a long line of important benchmarks for the Tea Party movement.  Like Indiana and Nebraska before it, Texas is an opportunity for a Tea Party-backed conservative (Ted Cruz) to defeat the establishment choice (Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst).

According to recent polling, Dewhurst is hovering just under the 50% mark.  If Tuesday’s results mirror the polls, there will be a run-off, giving Cruz the chance to challenge the establishment candidate mano-a-mano.

My Latest Literary Creations

Long story, but the other day I decided to jot down a few poems.  Sometimes when prose fails me, a little poetry brightens the day.

Future’s Past

Whatever you’ve got,
It’s never enough.
Don’t live your life
Just gathering stuff.

Live every day
as though it’s your last.
Don’t ever forget
the present is the future’s past.

Reflections on the Republican Nomination Process

Let’s just admit it.  We have a pretty stupid process of choosing the Republican nominee.  The Democrats’ process is even more fouled up and overcomplicated, but at least they don’t have to go through with it this time around.  We Republicans, on the other hand, are stuck with a terrible process for choosing the best person to face off against President Obama.

First off, I’d like to know why Iowa and New Hampshire deserve to be first.  Do they have higher IQs?  Are they better judges of character?  Did God grant them the first Caucuses and Primaries just as he gave the Israelites their homeland?  I don’t think so.  These two small states are not representative of the country and do not deserve to be first in line just because they have laid claim to it.

Why Herman Cain No Longer Gets My Vote (And Why It’s Good He’s Dropping Out)

Perhaps it was a mistake for me to jump on the Cain Train.  By now, you’ve all seen the implosion of the Cain campaign, and it is quite clear that Mr. Cain was never quite ready for primetime.

Here are the reasons why I can no longer support Mr. Cain for President:

Herman Cain and the Left’s Fixation with Race

Originally posted at The Right Wing Blog on October 26, 2011

The candidacy of Herman Cain is a shock to the progressive system.  In the neat little world that resides in their heads, liberal Democrats envision an alternate reality in which President Obama is a liberal Reagan, the private sector is booming, all international conflicts have been ended with diplomacy, and Herman Cain is secretly a white man in blackface.  Either he’s secretly white, or he hates his own race.
