    Wisconsin GOP Primary “Endorsements”

    All the GOP primary action in Wisconsin will be at the congressional level.  In the First, incumbent Paul Ryan will face (Segway) Jerry Ryan.  The fact his website/Facebook page shows Jeremy Ryan on a Segway should be grounds alone for dismissing him.  Enough said…Paul Ryan it is. In the LaCrosse-Eau Claire based 3rd district, Democratic incumbent Ron Kind is somewhat vulnerable.  Wisconsin politics can be volatile | Read More »

    It’s Tough Being a Left Wing Demagogue These Days

    Katie McDonough is a writer and assistant editor for Salon, a Left wing online rag.  A quick survey of her articles illustrates a tendency to be preoccupied with rape, abortion and contraception.  Of course, the Left refers to the latter two as “reproductive rights.”  Although not quite as bad as Amanda Marcotte- another spew- McDonough must have graduated from the same gender studies course at | Read More »

    Connecticut Republican Primary “Endorsements”

    With no Senate race and no contested primaries at the Congressional level, the only Republican primary will take place for the Governor’s office.  To state that incumbent Democrat Dan Malloy is in trouble electorally would be an understatement.  He barely won against Tom Foley in 2010. Foley has been chomping at the bits for a rematch this year.  First, he will have to face down | Read More »

    Hawaii GOP Primary “Endorsements”

    In a strange sense, it is interesting that Hawaii is even being discussed in GOP circles, but such is the mood in politics this year.  Dynamics specific to the Aloha State make some races very noteworthy this year starting with the gubernatorial race. Democratic incumbent Neil Abercrombie is not exactly the most popular man in Hawaii politics.  He faces his own primary challenge from a serious | Read More »

    Tennessee GOP Primary “Endorsements”

    On Thursday, Tennessee will hold their primary elections.  There is a gubernatorial, senatorial and congressional elections this year in the Volunteer State. For Governor, incumbent Republican Bill Haslam will face three opponents in his primary.  Upon analysis, Haslam may not be the most conservative Republican governor in office.  But, he is the most likely Republican in Tennessee to keep the office in Republican hands.  For | Read More »

    Be Wary of That Stranger in Church

    Recently, there were reports in the mainstream media about the FBI soliciting bids on a contract that would monitor news reports about that law enforcement agency.  Some outlets describe it as either a waste of taxpayer money, or a chilling exercise against a free press.  The reasons are not given by the FBI but the ostensible one could be to determine how the media covers | Read More »

    Selling Out and Getting High

    Let me state upfront that from a personal standpoint, I do not care what anyone does in the privacy of their home as long as no one gets hurt, especially children.  If you want to spend your day getting high on marijuana, that is your business.  But, if the known deleterious effects of your use starts to impact my life such as decreased worker productivity, | Read More »

    Kansas GOP Primary “Endorsements”

    On August 5th, Kansas Republicans will go to the polls to make choices for US Senate, Governor, and two of four contested congressional districts.  All eyes are on the Senate primary where incumbent Pat Roberts faces a serious challenge.  But before we get to that race, Sam Brownback seeks another term as Governor.  The national media is fixated on the Governor’s race and Brownback’s apparent | Read More »

    Washington GOP Primary “Endorsements”

    Like other states on Tuesday, the action will be at the congressional district level in Washington.  Without further ado: In the 1st District which includes some northern counties near the Canadian border and one-third of King County, Democrat Suzan DelBene would appear vulnerable as Cook rates this district only +4 for the Democrats.  A Republican last held this district in 1999.  Still, it could be put | Read More »
