    Centrism: The Truth Rundown

However, deficit-hawk Paul Ryan, the Chairman of the House Budget Committee, insisted their work is not yet done.

    Mitt Romney is the new Ronald Reagan – he died 7 years ago

    In the upcoming weeks and months, we’ll all be introduced to the new Mitt Romney. Or, perhaps the new new Mitt Romney. Or even the new new new Mitt Romney. All that matters is that whatever happened in the past, Romney is totally a serious strict Constitionalist hyper-conservative now and he won’t be changing until the wind changes direction.

    I support the Egyptian people – provided it doesn’t affect me

    Having watched events unfold in Egypt this past week, I must say I am impressed by the bravery and strength of will shown by the Egyptian people. They are standing tall against a dictatorial regime, and that is to be applauded.

    Sarah Palin: This just isn't funny anymore

    A while back, I wrote a post entitled “Sarah Palin will always be funny. Always!” In it, I had this to say:

    “I am shocked and offended that there are those out there that will say they are ’sick of Sarah Palin jokes.’”

    Yesterday, here’s how Palin countered Obama’s use of the “Sputnik Moment” analogy in his State of the Union Address:

    State of the Union: The Undecided Voters' Rebuttal
