Welcome to the June 10, 2007 edition of carnival of political punditry. I don't hide the fact that my blog is a conservative blog. I write conservative opinions and so does the other writer, Troy.
I decided to do a wide open blog carnival, allowing opinions from the left and the write. After a good look, I almost feel like I need to put in a "Opinions do not reflect" disclaimer.
The submissions are all here, I didn't turn away anything that was submitted. I will be doing this each week and I will continue to post so long as the submissions do not push too far. There is one that is off topic, and this is the only time it will be allowed.
Some of this is funny, some of it is cause for concern, and some of it is very informative. I don't agree with it all, but here it is.
Madeleine Begun Kane presents Bloody Hell, It?ll Be Bloody! posted at Mad Kane's Political Madness.
Avant News presents George W. Bush to Replace Will Shortz as NYT Crossword Puzzle Editor posted at Avant News.
Sammy Benoit presents Democratic Party Political Correctness Will Get US Killed posted at YID With LID.
Michael Boldin presents Understanding the Constitution and War Powers: Can the Congress end War? posted at Populist Party of America.
Steve Faber presents - The Latest Government Proposal to Waste Your Money, Cost You Money, Invade Your Privacy, and (sadly) More posted at DebtBlog.
CapeTownDissentator presents Bill O'Reilly: Ecce Homo, an SOB Who Thinks He's a BFD posted at The Dissentators.
Jack Yoest presents Lurita Alexis Doan: Good Management Meets Bad Politics posted at Reasoned Audacity, saying, "A good female manager leading the GSA is bringing out the worst in Congressman Henry Waxman.
Waxman is conducting hearings investigating the General Services Agency head, Lurita Alexis Doan. The Democratic Chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee is accusing Doan of sweetheart deals (that never happened), of lack of competence (voiced by ‘reassigned’ personnel), and of violations of the Hatch Act. The accusation of Hatch Act violations is the most serious."
Charles H. Green presents How Marketing Can Destroy Sales Trust posted at Trust Matters, saying, "It was Robert McNamara, Secretary of Defense during the Vietnam War, who gave Republicans this advice for dealing with the press: "Never answer the question they ask; only answer the question you want to talk about." If politicians want people to start trusting them, they have to get past this Vietnam-era Republican talking points mindset."
