Sen. Mike Lee gives the Thanksgiving Address
This year Conservatives we get a treat. Sen. Mike Lee (R-UT) 100% gave the weekly Republican address, and since it’s Thanksgiving it’s special. It’s a little over five minutes and features a tribute to our service personnel, also volunteers, moms and dads, and other great people. Give a listen and make sure to crank it up real loud when the relatives of a ‘different’ political persuasion show up for the feast today | Read More »
Election Day ! Louisiana! (an open thread about anything)
I kneaux nothing about Lussiana politics, and I’ll be the first to admit it. But, I suspect others on here do and may want to chime in. Plus its a weekend, which means all kinds of stuff can happen and usually does, hence the desire for open threads since some stories have no home to go to. Also, this is Thanksgiving week. So, dig out your | Read More »
The Conspiracy Against Trump and Your Candidate May Be Next
The Wall Street Journal has news up of the latest group formed to bring down Donald Trump. At least I believe that’s what its about as the actual story is behind a paywall and I was only able to catch the gist of it thanks to The Hill. Liz Mair, who use to work in communications with the RNC and was on Gov. Scott Walker’s campaign before he dropped out, has | Read More »

Who Wins in the Jindal-Cruz Cage Match?
Ok, cage match might not be fair. That would imply something along the lines of a Trump-Christie slugfest. And Cruz really, really doesn’t like cage matches. No, this might not get that bad, but Gov. Bobby Jindal has challenged Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% to a debate. Jindal said he wants the debate next week, in Milwaukee. Both will actually be in Wisconsin Tuesday | Read More »
“God Told Me” He Wanted Ryan as Speaker – Boehner
I’m not sure what to make of this little story. It comes to us via The Hill. And when I say little story I’m talking sixteen lines so you’re not really cutting into Sunday football time to check it out. The article, once again, assures us that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) N/A% had no desire whatsoever to be Speaker of the House. Apparently | Read More »
The Absent-Minded Senator. Runaway, Rubio.
There’s an enlightening article in today’s WaPo on the real reason Presidential candidate Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 94% has been absent from so many votes in the senate. In a nutshell, he doesn’t really like working in the Senate anymore. One could simply argue he’s running for President and it does take time hopping from one state to another but that wouldn’t be entirely true. As | Read More »
Fred Thompson for Speaker. Because, why not?
Now that Rep. Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) 56% has dropped out of the Speaker’s race, we are left at the same place we were the day before Rep. John Boehner (R-OH) N/A% dropped out. We have a House in disarray. Conservatives want a force to be reckoned with, especially where the Senate is concerned. Everybody wants someone who understands enough about rules and procedures | Read More »
(UPDATED) RNC and CNBC collude to take out half the candidates. This month.

Not surprising as The Politico story referenced down below indicated at least a couple of the struggling campaigns were not pleased with the lack of details. Now the word is there WILL be an undercard which RNC’s Spicer said probably wouldn’t happen. There will be a 6 pm and an 8 pm debate. National Polls will | Read More »
After Boehner, Who’s Next to Retire? (Update of open thread) Value Voters Summit Poll Results
I’m just going to go straight to the paragraph in a story from TheHill that brings up an interesting scenario. *** “You’re going to see a lot of the older, Boehner lieutenants start to consider retirement,” said Bob Kish, an Ohio-based GOP ad maker. “Guys who are buddies with Boehner are going to say, ‘Screw this.
