  • Your New Scoop Site

    Welcome to Scoop!

    To help you figure things out, there is a Scoop Admin Guide which can hopefully answer most of your questions.

    Some tips:

    • Most of the layout is changed in "Blocks", found in the admin tools menu
    • Features can be turned on and off, and configured, in "Site Controls" in the admin tools menu
    • Stories have an "edit" link right beside the "Full Story" link on an index page, and right beside the "Post a Comment" link on the full story page. They can also be edited by clicking the story title in the "Story List" admin tool
    • Boxes are what allow you to write new features for Scoop; they require a knowledge of the perl programming language to work with effectively, although you can often make small changes without knowing much perl. If you would like a feature added but cannot program it yourself, ScoopHost does custom Scoop programming as one of its services.
    • If you aren't sure where to look for a particular feature or piece of display, try the "Search Admin Tools" link in the admin tools menu.

    Media Myth vs Delegate Reality

    The media elites (to say noting of the party elites) would love to have you believe their line that Romney's wins in Michigan and Arizona last night have him back in command of the primary contest heading into Super Tuesday, where ten states await him.  Their meme is that, though the win in Michigan was ugly and close, Romney is now the presumptive nominee; it's just a matter of how long it's going to take to clear the rest of the field.

    The reality, however, is so much messier.

    Mitt Romney's Financial Connections To Conservative Talk Radio

    Most people don't like the word "conspiracy" being tossed around when talking about American politics, so I won't use it.

    But something's fishy about the way conservative talk radio show hosts are covering the GOP nomination process.  

    I have been researching this topic and emailing media contacts for a few months now about Mitt Romney's financial connections to Clear Channel Radio and conservative talk show hosts like Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh.  What I found out was that Bain Capital actually purchased the syndication companies of major conservative talk radio shows shortly prior to the 2008 presidential election.  Here's a great article about that: CLICK HERE

    A NOT Endorsement.

    Frankly, the best conservative candidates for president are either gone, or not running.

    Sarah Palin, the smarter than you think VP candidate of 2008 sparked the imagination of tea folk throughout the country, and had already been exposed to the chicken pox of media skewering. She would have been immune to their poisoned quills this time around.  However, the generosity of the milquetoast Republican establishment would not be forthcoming.  Where the media left off, the supposed spokespeople of the Right picked up, and inserted doubt of viability. Her decision to remain a viable voice meant NOT running.


    Herman Cain, one of those folks who actually understands how to identify problems and assign the proper talent to them, was probably the best hope in advancing the conservative message.  He was the first out of the gate with a plan for tax reform, and whether one agrees with HIS proposal, its hard to argue what we have currently is remotely correct.  Decidedly innovative, its too bad he is not running still. There is no doubt he was the greatest threat to the current admin for a number of reasons.


    Michele Bachmann has been fighting the tea party fight in DC consistently, yet never got the full support she needed.  When Herman Cain dropped out, much of that support went to Newt.  If she had hung in at least to Florida, I believe she would have had a resurgence.  Next to Herman, she was the best representative of tea values in the recent slate.

    And out of those left?

    Paul -
    Out of the park wrong on foreign affairs.
    Newt - Questionable values, probable opportunist.
    Romney - Romneycare. (need we say more?)

    Did I forget someone?

    ICYMI: The ABC News/Yahoo Iowa Republican Debate (from Drake, Iowa)

    On Saturday evening ABC presented a GOP debate live from Drake University in Des Moines, Iowa. The debate was sponsored by ABC News, Yahoo! News, WOI-TV, the Des Moines Register and the Republican Party of Iowa. This was the first debate held since Herman Cain ended his 2012 run leaving just 6 candidates on stage to field questions. (Jon Huntsman did not meet the polling requirements set forth by ABC to participate in this debate.)

    Green & White & Black Eyes

    I have little to say about an extended leg held up to catch an ignorant number nine's mistaken place in the universe for those few seconds.

    The MSU-Wisconsin game in its entirety was about as great a game played that I have seen recently.  The play was remarkable at times, and talent evident. Other than the take back from a toe in-bounds and a game changing catch, the officiating was semi-OK as well.  The loss of course disappointing, and a kick in the face darkening up the one eye that could still see.  A black eye of symmetry.

    The other was from another hit to the head with the unique campaign of Herman Cain hitting the skids.

    I would be lying to say that I was expecting him to quit.  As the initial claims of harassment were obviously a measure of the times they were made in, and the Bialick claim no doubt contrived by the Obama reelection camp,  it was strange to see yet another woman who had questionable mental and financial history being taken seriously enough to end Cain's campaign.

    The take-away from this?  Not even sure.  It is certainly enough that Herman Cain's wife of 42 years had had enough. And not being used to the 24/7 anal exam given (only conservative) candidates by the media, said it was time to pack it in.  I suppose the other alternative is there was something to what the last woman said, except that from what I DO KNOW about Cain, his history, and listening to him speak, it seems more likely he was overly concerned for her welfare at one time, and may have been a financial benefactor too long.

    In any event, as of this writing, news reports suggest that he may be endorsing Newt Gingrich as early as this afternoon.

    If so?  No mas.  I'm down.

    Wednesdays Divertere: A Reagan Era Thorn Still Sticks In My Side

    Newt, the 'pathway' didn't work for Reagan in a much more sane 1986, and it won't work for you now.  Your newly found papal 'moderate' pandering for the establishment nomination is quite sickening.
