Todd Akin Singlehandedly Sinks The Republican Battleship

The Republican goal is to elect “the most Conservative Republican who can win in each Senate seat”.

Todd Akin is apparently a Republican Congressman from Missouri. I neither knew that or cared about that before today, and I still don’t care. Continue reading “Todd Akin Singlehandedly Sinks The Republican Battleship”

Republican Race To The Bottom

This 2012 Republican nomination process has gone from amusing to funny to stupid to embarrassing to pathetic.

When I first started watching this fiasco unfold, I figured the end result would be exactly what Ann Coulter said:

If we replace Chris Christie’s name in her statement with “a viable Republican candidate”, we arrive at my statement at the time.. If the Republicans didn’t get a viable candidate to run, they were going to nominate Romney and they were going to lose, barely, to President Obama. Continue reading “Republican Race To The Bottom”

2012 New Hampshire Republican Primary Predictions

Today, the Republicans in New Hampshire are going to make their decision about which candidate they’d like to see attempt to defeat President Barack Obama in the 2012 general election.

Here’s how I think it will turn out:

Today, the Republicans in New Hampshire are going to make their decision about which candidate they’d like to see attempt to defeat President Barack Obama in the 2012 general election.

Here’s how I think it will turn out:

  1. Romney
  2. Huntsman
  3. Paul
  4. Santorum
  5. Gingrich
  6. Edit: Buddy Roemer
  7. Perry
  8. Cain
  9. Bachmann

I know Cain and Bachmann are kaput already. I’m pretty sure they both qualified for this primary before they exited the race, so they’ll probably have a few votes each. Cain had ~58 votes in Iowa, and he wasn’t even there. Continue reading “2012 New Hampshire Republican Primary Predictions”

Done With Politics

The point of the nomination process is *NOT* to send your best and brightest, but rather to send whomever is actually WILLING TO RUN, and whomever has enough money to stay in the race.

That sucks. That’s not interesting. That’s not American Exceptionalism.

I know most of y’all tune in to BillCammack.com to listen to me talk yang about women & dating, but I’ve been preoccupied recently with the clown show known as United States Politics.

I’m over it now, so we’ll be returning to our regularly-scheduled programming.. joined in progress.

What had HAPPENED was…

Why Did I Bother?

Obama vs. Romney 2012

I say that there is absolutely no way that the Republicans will be sending anyone but Romney to the big dance.

To be clear, Romney was always the only quasi-viable candidate that the Republicans fielded this cycle.

All these surges in the polls that you’ve seen (if you’ve been paying attention to this stuff at all) are not votes for individual candidates.. They’re votes *AGAINST* Romney.

There are only two choices here.. Romney and Not-Romney.

Republican Debate

Bloomberg Television and Charlie Rose made an interesting decision last night, by choosing to focus the entire Republican candidate debate on economic issues.

[Disclosure: I’ve edited video for Bloomberg Television, Charlie Rose, ABC and Fox News. www.linkedin.com/in/billcammack]

This was interesting because the candidates don’t have 90 minutes worth of things to say about the economy or jobs.

Of course, Herman Cain talked about his 999 plan, which Michele Bachmann snapped on him with something like “Turn those numbers over, and the devil is in the details”, indicating that if you flip it, it becomes 666: Continue reading “Obama vs. Romney 2012”

Social Media Budgeting (Cars, Not Trophies)

Social Media

Bill CammackPeople always want to know how to make money with social media.

The problem is that social media doesn’t make money FOR you. Social media ENABLES YOU to make money…. maybe.

Everybody wants to know how their sales are going to increase once they hire you to create a website or set them up with a presence on Facebook or Twitter. Continue reading “Social Media Budgeting (Cars, Not Trophies)”

re: Jill Scott in Essence Magazine

Jay Smooth pointed out to me that JIll Scott had this to say in Essence Magazine:

“My new friend is handsome, African-American, intelligent and seemingly wealthy. He is an athlete, loves his momma, and is happily married to a White woman. I admit when I saw his wedding ring, I privately hoped. But something in me just knew he didn’t marry a sister. Although my guess hit the mark, when my friend told me his wife was indeed Caucasian, I felt my spirit…wince.” [Read more of Jill’s article…]

For more context, here’s a video of what she had to say on CNN:

Now, I was going to let this topic slide because I don’t care. However.. Sensing that we’re going to have some more fake Sex Addict claims in the near future, I may as well break up my ongoing coverage of that topic with something else.

Disclaimers

First of all, let me say that I understand what Jill’s saying and I understand from reading what she wrote and listening to her in the video clip I posted above why she feels hurt about the situation. Continue reading “re: Jill Scott in Essence Magazine”
