(San Fran Chronicle) There’s no shortage of their kind in the politically bluest parts of California. Liberals so freaked out about the prospect of President Obama losing his re-election bid that they can’t sleep at night. Can’t talk about anything else. Can’t stop parsing the latest polls.
For the past several weeks, the 60-year-old San Francisco resident has frequently bolted awake in the middle of the night, in “a panic attack,” she said. She darts for her computer and checks the latest polls. Some days she’s so distraught that she can’t exercise.

And, if I wake up and Obama is the winner, I won’t mope around for weeks. I’ll just get right back to work attempting to stop his far left agenda, as will most Republicans. Liberals take politics entirely too personally.
Obama is now claiming that pulling our forces out of Iraq wasn’t his idea, even though he spent nearly every
In 2007, author William Gibson wrote the phrase the â€œCold Civil Warâ€ for one of his science fiction novels. That led blogger April Gavaza, also known as the â€œHyacinth Girl,â€ as well as Mark Steyn to pick up on the concept a year later. But of course, as General McChrystalâ€™s disastrous interview with Rolling Stone and his subsequent dismissal illustrates, the media isnâ€™t just where wars are fought domestically, as we discuss in the latest edition of our Silicon Graffiti video blog
It must be nice to work for the government. Sadly it’s the most lucrative way to make a living in
