Freddoso says John McCain’s campaign and Republicans at large are making the wrong case against the Illinois senator. “I don’t think you beat Obama by saying that he’s Paris Hilton,” said Freddoso, a reporter for the conservative magazine National Review, referring to McCain’s latest advertising (more…)

    A measured look at a so-called reformer
    David Freddoso’s book is not the mud-slinging Obama-bashing diatribe that one might have expected in today’s polarized political climate.

    The Case for Obama “the Political Houdini”
    To his credit, the author makes clear “up front” that he is on the opposite end of the political spectrum from that of Mr. Obama.

    I found the book useful but I knew most of the information already. It is a good read for someone that gets all their news from the biased mainstream news media.
