Boycott David Letterman's Sponsors
June 14, 2009
If you don’t know why, then you’re reading the wrong blog. The New Agenda is keeping tabs on sponsors of David Letterman’s show. I have already told T-Mobile that I will cancel may $120 month service (paying the penalty) if they don’t stop advertising on The Late Show by July 15. Top names on the boycott list: * Johnson & Johnson * T-Mobile * Ford * Nissan/Infiniti * Toyota/Lexus * Proctor & Gamble * Citigroup (which should be out of business, anyway) * Chase (JPMC) * The Gap (plus Old Navy and Banana Republic) * Wyeth * Saturn * Hotels.
The Post-Palin Electoral College Map
September 6, 2008
Sarah Palin will push 9 toss-up states into McCain’s camp (from left to right): * Nevada * Colorado * New Mexico * [Michigan](https://www.politico.com/news/stories/0908/13198.html) * New Hampshire * Indiana * Ohio * Virginia * [Florida](https://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReportEmail.aspx?g=e3a24829-6f3f-4928-b30f-cb21804091f0) This will give McCain the Electoral College victory in November, 300 to 238. The Palin-Effect works two different ways: Rough Rider Admiration and Strong Woman Identification. This estimate and projection is based on analysis of detailed polling data from Gallup and Reuters.

Jay Nordlinger writes on NRO: And, believe it or not, this advice might be worth something: I caution liberals, both in politics and in the media (same diff, right?), not to let Palin drive them nuts. A lot of conservatives — a lot of us conservatives, I might say — were driven nuts by Clinton. We were driven nuts by his enduring popularity in the face of tremendous misdeeds.
Palin Power **Updates Galore**
September 4, 2008
Sarah Palin’s Vice Presidential acceptance speech was a grand slam, walk-off homerun to the opposite field that knocked a beer out of Obama’s hand after the concession stand closed. She was smooth, easy, natural, funny, smart, real, genuine, organic, and brilliant. My favorite line: " . . . after the fake, styrofoam Greek columns have been hauled back to the lot in Hollywood . . ." Chris Wallace, “A star is born.
Live Blogging the Palin Speech
September 4, 2008
Live blog of the most anticipated convention speech in our lifetimes. https://www.coveritlive.com/index2.php/option=com_altcaster/task=viewaltcast/altcast_code=5af59d4052/height=550/width=470 Anderson Cooper, CNN: “The excitement here is palpable.” Shep Smith, Fox: “I have never been so excited about speech in my life. I can’t wait.” Chris Wallace, Fox: “Oh, this is big, I’m excited, and that doesn’t happen at conventions very often.” I feel like I did at 4:30 p.m. on Super Bowl Sunday in 2000: one hour before the Rammies kicked off against the Titans.
If I Wrote Sarah Palin's Speech
September 3, 2008
Excerpt: . . . They say I lack experience. They’re right, in a way. I have no experience wandering a city for three years trying to find myself. No, I’ve never had that luxury. But Barack Obama has. And I have no experience funneling money from an educational trust into organizations run by my close friend, the convicted terrorist. No experience at all. Nor do I have the experience of having a political career launched by a pair of terrorists who tried to blow up the Capitol and the Pentagon, who succeeded in killing a police officer.

Palin The Star At Missouri McCain Rally
September 1, 2008
Every mention of Sarah Palin produced a banner-waving roar from the crowd of over 20,000 in T. R. Hughes Stadium in O’Fallon, Missouri, on blistering hot Sunday afternoon. While McCain is on top of the ticket, Palin is the draw. A woman from Dent County–about 3 hours from O’Fallon–made the drive to see McCain and Palin in person. She was thrilled to get hold of a “McCain-Palin” banner after several stacks of the banners didn’t make it to her.
McCain - Palin Rally in O'Fallon, Missouri, Is Still On
August 31, 2008
We’re getting ready to head out to the McCain Rally in O’Fallon, Missouri. I just checked with the campaign and the rally is still on. John McCain is stopping in New Orleans to check on hurricane preparations before the rally, so I wouldn’t be surprised if it starts late. I’ll have photos and a report on the events this evening.
