    Dick Lugar’s Voting Record

    The other day I suggested Dick Lugar fire his new media guy.Let’s add another example to the list. His campaign sent out an email blast encouraging people to come to a site supporting Richard Mourdock to read a hit piece Lugar’s new media guy posted about Mourdock’s voting record.The offense? Not voting for John McCain in the Indiana GOP Primary in 2008.But what about Dick | Read More »

    Norman Ornstein to the Press Corps: Stop Covering the GOP Fairly to Stop Their Success

    “It is a soft form of the liberal fascism about which I’ve been warning. The GOP must be painted as extremist by the press, their point of view must be painted as fringe, and they must be shut up because they are too damn successful.” Norman Ornstein is the in house pet liberal at the American Enterprise Institute who they let out of his cage | Read More »

    Eric Cantor Doesn’t Want You. He Wants Democrats.

He was successful there, but we need to shut him down in Indiana.The Republican Leader in the House of Representatives is not backing down from trying to drive up Democrat turnout in the Indiana Republican Primary.First, you have to wonder why a House guy is getting involved in | Read More »

    A Killer Among Us? #ThingsObamaKilled

    As President of the United States, Barack Obama wants us to know he killed Osama Bin Laden. The SEALs? Pfffffftttt . . . nope. Barack Obama did it. If you don’t believe him, wait till the campaign commercials tell you. Don’t believe them? Well, just in time for the election, Hollywood will provide us with an in-kind contribution of a propaganda film.True, the President did | Read More »

    Death of the Moderate . . . Democrat

    It is worth noting that on Tuesday several moderate Democrats went down in flames in Pennsylvania, continuing a trend that has escalated since 2008. Liberals do not want moderate Democrats in their caucus.What is most interesting about it from a conservative perspective, however, is how there has not been a ton of coverage about the death of the blue dogs — more dogs dead in | Read More »
