  1. My God! Obama has the election in the bag!

    He had the Media in the bag! Imagine what it looks like in that bag if we all really shook up a good one?

    What else Obama got in that bag?

  2. I’m not sure about Zorn — he seems kind of on the fence.

  3. John Coctostan

    I’ll add one.
    Steve Rhodes: Ralph Nader

  4. divisionstreet

    Not true. While I like a lot of what Nader has to say, I believe he’s marginalized himself by running for president since 2004. I do post some Nader material on the Beachwood Reporter – just as I post Bob Barr material. That’s because I believe our political discourse should be expanded beyond the narrow silliness and stranglehold of the two major parties. My current plan is to write in Bob, one of the co-owners of the Beachwood Inn.

  5. Sound Policy, Steve, sound. Politics, Religion and Baseball may be eschewed, but the Man tapping the Golden Stuff is essential.
