CLA Radio 11/29/13: Stuff

CLA Radio 11/29/13: Stuff

The next ConservativeLA Radio show (on Duane FM in the Hughniverse, Friday, 11/29, 7:00 Pacific/10:00 Eastern) will consist of very little talk and a lot of great music. There will be no particular theme, just music I like–probably all of which has been played on the show previously at one time or another. In a word: Stuff. The idea was to to keep the work load at a minimum for Thanksgiving week, both for Generalissimo and myself. Beats a rerun, right? 😀 Hope you can stop by and listen, and join us in chat! Spoiler set list: Son Volt: Brick Walls Tony Joe White: Who You Gonna Hoodoo Now? The Beach Boys: God Only Knows Buddy Miller: Does My Ring Burn Your Finger Dolly Parton: Put It Off Until Tomorrow King Wilkie: Wrecking Ball Darryl Rhoades: Barney Fife Station ID James Brown: Get Up I Feel Like Being A Sex Machine Primus: Pork Soda Toots and the Maytals: Louie Louie XTC: Helicopter Ray Wylie Hubbard: Screw You, We’re From...

This Nation, Under God

This Nation, Under God

“Under God” – two little words, redacted by our Commander In Chief from his recitation of one of the greatest speeches in American history – Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg Address. President Lincoln’s message is strikingly succinct and profound. It is both timely and timeless. It bookends our Declaration of Independence – “that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights” – with its fulfillment in Liberty, paid for by the blood and treasure of the Civil War. It is often said that there are no atheists in foxholes. For Lincoln, the White House was a foxhole, and he was in that fight with his men. Unlike Obama, Lincoln could say with authority that his was “my” military. For men such as this, Divine Providence was an essential component of strength. To what higher authority can a President otherwise appeal for strength, wisdom and guidance? Unlike Obama, Lincoln would have to wait for days or weeks to learn the fortunes of war. Meanwhile, long nights...

Why Cuccinelli Lost in Virginia

Why Cuccinelli Lost in Virginia

As all of the pundits write their summaries of the Virginia gubernatorial race on Tuesday, it is not hard to figure out why Ken Cuccinelli lost: he was left out to rot by the GOP. According to Cuccinelli campaign strategist, Chris La Civita, financial support from national Republicans dried up on October 1. The Washington Post reported: “There are a lot of questions people are going to be asking and that is, was leaving Cuccinelli alone in the first week of October, a smart move?” La Civita said after Cuccinelli’s concession speech, according to the Post. “We were on our own. Just look at the volume [of ads].” Also of note, Boyd Marcus, the chief of staff for House Majority Leader Eric Cantor until 2003, went to work for the McAuliffe campaign. Said Marcus to the Associated Press when he joined the campaign in August: “I was looking at the candidates, and I saw Terry McAuliffe as the guy who will work with everybody to get things done.” Get...
