Under the Fedora CPAC etc…

Well CPAC has come and gone but the GOP seems to have learned little.  Monday the talk is all re-branding and tweaking things to that suddenly the MSM will decide that the Republican Party is the greatest thing since sliced bread. Earth to GOP, your problem isn’t branding it’s principles.  Look at the last few…


Under the Fedora Chavez, CPAC & Baseball

Hugo Chavez has died and some on the left are in mourning including some in congress like Jose Serrano Hugo Chavez was a leader that understood the needs of the poor. He was committed to empowering the powerless. R.I.P. Mr. President. People were expressing outrage, I don’t’ see why.  The left has supported totalitarians since…


Under the Fedora 2-21-13

I’ve been watching the constant attacks on Marco Rubio for drinking water coupled with the hits on Ted Cruz for daring to question Chuck Hagel and the outside money that he won’t disclose details on. It’s been fascinating to see the media continue to embrace this while doing their best to shield Senator Mendenez.  CNN…


Under the Fedora: Syndication DaPope and More

Michael Graham has now gone into Self Syndication in the same way I have, from the same studio I broadcast from, soliciting advertisers in the same way as I am, at the same time of day as me (except during the week rather than Saturdays)  and on all of the stations I’m on as well….


Under the Fedora: Courage Models et/al

This morning I was looking at Morning Joe when they said we had the potential for a repeat of the Blizzard of ’78 this weekend.  Apparently there are several computer weather models and the spread is as much as 1” to 16” inches in parts of NY State. If 72 hours out our computer models…


Under the Fedora, Conventional wisdom and boobs

In the MSM this week it’s been all about Hillary Clinton and her inevitable nomination and election to the presidency.  Didn’t we see this movie five years ago? Don’t count out Joe Biden for a moment.  Goofball image (I think that’s deliberate) not withstanding he served in the Senate for 36 years.  I suspect he…


Under the Fedora: The Man

Stan Musial died Saturday.  Youngsters might not recognize the name although their spell checkers will.  Musial never dated movie stars, he wasn’t known for fights with the press, brawls in bars, or bad behavior of any time.  He was married for 72 years to the same woman who died last May and was never known…


Under the Fedora: Saints and Sinners

On Morning Joe Monday I was treated to yet another day of people praising members of the GOP who are willing to attack the party and being told how far to the right Republicans have gone. Somehow they never note how far left democrats now are. Katrina Vanden Heuvel would never have been considered a…


Under the Fedora: Here comes the Hangover

I’m typing this on New Years Eve and while I’m not a drinker I’m thinking it’s is the perfect day to think of Obama’s Second Term. New Year’s Eve generally is a binge that ends with big headache and on occasion the company of someone you regret the next morning. That is going to be…


Under the Fedora 1924-2012

In November of 1924 Calvin Coolidge who came to the White House the year earlier after the death of Warren G. Harding, was elected in his own right to the presidency taking 35 states, 382 electoral votes and 54% of the popular vote vs John W. Davis’ 136 Electoral votes and 28.8% popular and Progressive…
