Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Jeffrey Lord on 1.13.12 @ 10:35AM POW! In his typical understated New York fashion, former Mayor Rudy Giuliani went on Fox and Friends yesterday and smacked Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry for their sudden yearning for class warfare. “What the hell are you doing, Newt? I expect […]

Gingrich and Perry Seeking the Oliver Stone Vote?

Print Email Text Size The Spectacle Blog By Jeffrey Lord on 1.10.12 @ 11:25PM One can only be speechless. Are Newt Gingrich and Rick Perry auditioning for roles as the new Oliver Stone? Newt Gingrich attacking “the rich”???? Rick Perry going after Mitt Romney as a “vulture capitalist”? What are these people thinking? Not Reagan […]

Via Fox News: Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has failed to qualify for Virginia’s March 6 Republican primary, a development that complicates his bid to win the GOP presidential nomination. “After verification, RPV has determined that Newt Gingrich did not submit required 10k signatures and has not qualified for the VA primary,” the Republican Party […]

Big Mo for Perry: Ashton Kutcher’s Mistress is a Fan?

Via US Magazine: . . .The post-coital talk was a little unexpected, she confesses; the duo talked astrology (they’re both Aquarius), religion, love, even politics. “I told him I was a Lutheran from Texas.

How Perry Can Beat GOP Heel-Nippers

Texas Governor Rick Perry’s been getting pummeled lately.  By the entire GOP presidential field, as a matter of fact, and by Washington’s Republican establishmentarians, whose high-income jobs hinge on brilliant insights — such as that voters don’t want another Texan in the White House (brilliance as clichéd minds can produce).  Or that Perry’s really a […]

Revolutions: Reagan, Perry, Paul & Tracy Chapman

AmSpecBlog By Aaron Goldstein on 9.9.11 @ 6:06PM Well, aren’t we partying like it’s 1988? I have spent a good part of the day talking about the Reagan Revolution in the context of the têtê-â-têtê  between Rick Perry and Ron Paul and where both men were politically that year. I suppose it’s only fitting that Jim […]

Perry Wins

AmSpecBlog By Jeffrey Lord on 9.7.11 @ 10:29PM For a first time out in the circus, Texas Governor Rick Perry impressed in tonight’s Reagan Library debate. I have no favorites here. Even Congressman Ron Paul, of whom (ahem), I’ve been critical, did well. There’s a long way to go. The object is to find the […]
