StoneZone's 2011 Best And Worst Dressed 1/2/12
Mr. Blackwell of Hollywood sat as an arbiter of fashion by publishing a yearly list of the 10 Best and Worst Dressed People in the Demi-monde. Although best known for his "Worst Dressed"list, he maintained a successful career as a fashion journalist. Richard Blackwell was a powerful syndicated columnist who wrote features in newspapers and lifestyle magazines. Matrons and starlets, stockbrokers and models, politicians and prize-fighters all jockeyed to be included. Blackwell's critiques could be cutting. Being included in Mr. Blackwell's Best Dressed list could quickly improve one's social standing in New York, Miami or Hollywood while being included in his worst dressed list could doom one to social Siberia.

The GOP's Hispanic Secret Weapon 12/21/11
There is a Hispanic Republican who, as the Republican candidate for Vice President in 2012, would pave major inroads into the Hispanic American vote and help put the Republican ticket over the top. He's handsome, conservative and well spoken. He is fluent in Spanish and English. He could be the Republican's secret weapon. And he is not Senator Marco Rubio of Florida.

Mitt's Plans 12/21/11
"Plans are meaningless but planning is indispensable." -General of the Armies Dwight D. Eisenhower. "Discipline is nine-tenths of politics." -John P. Sears, Campaign Manager for Ronald Reagan and aide to President Richard M. Nixon. Ike was probably the greatest President in my lifetime. Eisenhower gave America four years of peace and prosperity, avoided foreign military entanglements and adamantly refused pressure to create deficits to fuel increased military spending. Eisenhower also sent the National Guard to Little Rock to enforce a new Civil Rights Law and was vilified by segregationists across the south for doing do.

A Miscarriage Of Justice 12/21/11
When veteran Democratic political operative Kelly Conlin was caught stealing hundreds of thousands of dollars from the NARAL, Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance limited the charges against Conlin to only a limited period of her thievery and did not examine the entire period during which Conlin was ripping off her employer. Conlin, influential in Manhattan's liberal Democratic and abortion rights circles, was allowed to plead guilty in return for no jail time.

The Fat Man Speaks 12/13/11
Former New Hampshire Governor John Sununu, who served as Bush 41's White House Chief of Staff, is a piece of work. When he served as Governor in the waning days of Ronald Reagan's final term, I was quietly scouting the Granite State for a Presidential bid by Congressman Jack Kemp. Sununu insisted to me he was entirely uncommitted on a date my partner Lee Atwater confirmed to me was after the Governor had privately pledged his allegiance to Vice President George Bush. In other words, Sununu lied to my face. Lied without blinking. Lied like a rug dealer.

The New Newt 12/9/11
The current surge by former speaker Newt Gingrich puts him in strong contention to wrest the Republican Presidential Nomination from previous frontrunner Mitt Romney.Gingrich is the" last man standing” among the candidates who were drawing from the pool of voters who will not support Romney.

Double Jeopardy, Joe Bruno, and Basic Criminal Justice 12/9/11
Imagine the government was prosecuting you a second time after failing in its first try. That's right. The government prosecuted you for a crime it claimed you committed. The government failed. Then the government wants to prosecute you again, hoping to get it right the second time around.

Smokin' Joe and Me 11/21/11
In 1971 I was in College at George Washington University, a hot bed of student opposition to the war in Viet Nam. Needless to say Cassius Clay AKA Muhammad Ali was a revered figure for his attacks on the white power establishment and the Viet Nam War. " No Viet Cong ever called me a nigger" was his most famous quote.

Why America Is Ready For A Third Party 11/21/11
As it dawns on voters that they may well have a choice between Barrack Obama and Mitt Romney a majority of voters favor a 3rd choice, if not a 3rd party. A stunning Washington Post/ABC News poll recently showed 61% of American voters wanted another choice in addition to these two standard bearers.

Al D'Amato - New York's Hypocrite 11/21/11
Former New York Senator Alfonse D'Amato ripped into former Speaker Newt Gingrich today in the New York Post. D'Amato dismissed Gingrich's chances in a general election telling the Post the former Speaker's "past history in government and in his personal life make him unelectable". D'Amato went on to say Gingrich's" business relationships" would prevent him from being elected.

Herman Cain And Mark Block Are Blowing Smoke Into The Faces Of The GOP Establishment 11/2/11
Herman Cainâ??s unlikely rise to the top of the polls this late in the GOP primary is one of the most fascinating campaign stories in past years. A successful private businessman and radio personality, Herman Cain had only scant recognition among Republicans and Republican leaning Independents going into this past May upon formerly announcing his candidacy.

The Republican Race Today 10/24/11
Texas Governor Rick Perry has $55 Million in his Super PAC and will have $20 million in his campaign to spend and exceed expectations in the early states of Iowa and New Hampshire. He must also hope for the decline of Herman Cain, who has deftly grabbed the outsider mantel and Tea Party enthusiasm.

Hicks In Iowa Shouldn't Pick Next President 10/12/11
Iowa is a rural State not representative of America today. It has no significant African-American, Hispanic, Jewish, or Asian communities. The number of Catholics is well below the national average and the state is completely agricultural.

Don't Count Rick Perry Out Quite Yet 10/12/11
Texas Governor Rick Perry's soaring poll ratings when he first entered the race set a bar that would be hard to live up to. A weak debate performance and a predictable fall back in the polls may have obscured the more significant fact that when Rick Perry was red-hot, he raised money like a maniac, posting a stunning $17 million war chest. Count on him raising $3 million more just out of Texas.

Include Gary Johnson 10/12/11
A New Hampshire poll shows both former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum and former New Mexico Governor Gary Johnson at 1% yet the Bloomberg / Washington Post debate in New Hampshire includes little Rickie and excludes a two-term Governor whose job creation record is better than Governor Rick Perry or Governor Mitt Romney.
