They refuse to accept, because of their political ideology, that [President Bush] has actually done more than any American president for Africa. . . . But it’s empirically so.”
Bob Geldof frontman for the Boomtown Rats & organizer of Live 8.

Here’s one entertainer who has put his compassion ahead of politics. A man who sees things as they are. Way to go, Bob! And to think that I listened to his band back when I was a young ‘un. I may have be onto something.

I have the privilege of being in the great city of Philadelphia this week, as I’m attending the Biotechnology trade association’s annual meeting. I’ve brought the camera along so I can do some photoblogging around Center City in case something strikes my fancy.

Any guess on what I had for lunch today?

Here’s a true patriot… or a facsimile thereof. And yes, it is obvious that all I had was my camera-phone last night at the National Constitution Center. Visit it! Great museum.

Oh, yeah….. and this is me. I think I take terrible pics, but this one isn’t too bad. You can somewhat see me, yet it is still somewhat mysterious, eh? *grin* I’m going to use this on our “About GayPatriot” page….when we get one.

GOP — True Party of the Middle Class

Despite what the liberals and Democrat Party want you to think, elections DO matter. And here’s an interesting report related to the last Presidential Election…you remember, the one that the President was re-elected by a majority of voters for the first time since 1988?

Loss of Middle Class a ‘crisis’ for Democrats – Washington Times

Although Mr. Bush’s popular-vote margin of victory over Sen. John Kerry in 2004 was less than three percentage points, the Massachusetts Democrat lost the middle class — defined by the report as voters living in households with incomes between $30,000 and $75,000 — by six percentage points. Among white middle-class voters, the gap was 22 percentage points.

Well, if Howard Dean keeps accusing all Republicans of being liars, bigots and criminals… I wonder how on earth the Democrat Party will ever begin winning national elections again since they’ve lost the middle class?

I might fall for this attempt at historic revisionism by the Senior Citizen Senator from West Virginia….

Another Press Room Scandal?

You’d think after “Gannongate,” that MSNBC wouldn’t be so blatant about announcing Norah O’Donnell’s apparent new job in the White House….
