NY 23 “Doug Hoffman doesn’t have an ice cube’s chance”

    Looks like as predicted, Doug Hoffman held true to his promise to keep in the race for NY 23, even after being beat in the R. Primary. He’s now running as the “Conservative Party”, whatever that is. A response from the NY Tea Party is pretty hard and concludes “Doug Hoffman doesn’t have an ice cube’s chance. ” of winning. Mark L. Baire of the | Read More »

    CA Push polls

    A request to R’s out in CA. I just received what I think is a push poll for what I think is Babs Boxer or some other Donk, and would like some help to figure out what they are pushing. It’s one of those automated sort of deals where you push numbers in response. Hope that helps identify this one. Starts with “We have a | Read More »

    J.D. Huckster?

    Well it seems that even the Wall Street Journal is on to JD Hayworth Huckster with today’s John Fund editorial. I won’t selectively quote the article, you can read all the details for yourself, but the take aways: JD “Mr. Conservative” Huckster is not so conservative when it comes to spending your money according to his voting record and votes for such wonderful things as | Read More »

    Fiorina on FOX

    I just caught the Carlie Fiorina interview on the FOX talking heads show, interview by Chris Wallace.  To sum up, BABS be afraid, be very afraid. Wallace quizzed Carlie on her stint at HP, seems like that will be a big issue in the general election. Carlie’s answer was OK I guess, blame most of the cuts at HP on the tech industry collapse in | Read More »

    “Welcome to JD Hayworth’s bizarro world”

    I’m not a fan of JD, no seriously I ‘m no kidding I’m not a fan of his, but I am amazed at times at how little JD knows and how little he thinks before opening his gob smacker and letting loose with nonsense. Phoenix New Times ( a lefty news outlet if it’s anything like the one in LA), has coverage of the latest | Read More »

    Campbell effectively dropping out?

    LA Times has an article up “Campbell goes dark a week before the primary“. “With a week before the primary, Republican U.S. Senate candidate Tom Campbell has pulled his television advertising and is relying on web ads and telephone calls to drive his message to likely Republican voters.” The article sites Campbell’s money problems as a big factor in this move. This move is not | Read More »

    New California poll out

    A new Times USC poll came out yesterday, nothing really shocking in the poll. Link to the poll in PDF. From the article: Key Findings California voters overwhelmingly want a Senator who will work with President Obama to pass his policies, not against him. While some public polls had Steve Poizner pulled within striking distance of Meg Whitman in the Republican primary for governor, Whitman | Read More »

    NY 23, 2010…what’s up with that?

    Flashing back to 2009 we had the infamous NY 23 race, and the whole selected not elected Greek tragedy of Dede Scozzafava, who couldn’t even pass as a RINO, running against Doug Hoffman as the Conservative party candidate. The race and the circumstances that led up to this race were fairly well documented and commented on affair here on RS, with a pretty universal agreement | Read More »

    “Glenn Beck refuses to endorse J.D. Hayworth”

    Over at “The Hill” there’s a column with a video link of an appearance of Glen Beck on the Imus show, pretty good interview with Beck by the way. The part about JD is about 4 minutes in, but Imus and JD are pretty entertaining getting to that point. The long and short, looks like Beck is not a fan of Johnny Mac, used the | Read More »

    Extending the Shuttle and Senator Kay Hutchison

    Setting aside the recent Texas Governor race results and the resulting calls for her resignation from the Senate, looks like Senator Hutchison is working on legislation that might save the space program for now. Despite the calls from some for Hutchison’s resignation, this is the sort of work long serving inside the beltway politicians are good at, well if you think spending money on a | Read More »
