The Incoming Wave Must Take Out a Walz, MN-CD1
[promoted from the diaries by haystack-good work in here eburke... more of these please folks?!] Barring a miracle (or unprecendented vote fraud) it would appear that the reign of Nancy “We Have to Pass the Bill to Find Out What’s in the Bill” Pelosi will be washed out to sea on November 2nd by a wave of voter discontent with the far-left policies of the Pelosi-Reid-Obama cabal. | Read More »

It’s Not the End. It’s Not Even the Beginning of the End.
Originally posted at 73wire.com What a difference eighteen months makes. In November, 2008, the Republican Party was left for dead at the side of the road with mainstream press organs pontificating about the causes of its permanent demise. Today? Even the LeftStreamMedia is acknowledging that a Republican takeover of the House isn’t just a possibility, it’s a likelihood and the latest LSM meme is that | Read More »
The Forgotten Race(s)
There have been about a gajillion bytes-worth of pontificating and prognositicating as to whom will control the House of Representatives after the November elections. In fact, last week even Rapid Robert Gibbs felt compelled to enter the fray. Well, at least until The Bay Area Beauty, aka Nancy Pelosi, stepped in to, ahem, “encourage” Mr. Gibbs to speak more kindly of the Dem chances. And | Read More »
Taking the President at His Word
Last week, Robert Gibbs, feckless Press Secretary for Barack Obama, experienced first-hand the fiery wrath of Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi. Gibbs’s impertinent act? Having the audacity to aver verbally and publicly that which virtually every pundit and politico knows in their hearts: the Dems are going to take a beating this fall and that it’s quite likely they could lose control of the | Read More »
Mike Castle: Meet Charlie Crist
On May 5, 2009, a little known Speaker of the House from Florida by the name of Marco Rubio announced his candidacy for the U.S. Senate. The media yawned, the pundits rolled their eyes, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee endorsed and slobbered over Gov. Charlie Crist as the “best chance to hold this seat” candidate. Meanwhile, Marco soared all the way to the low | Read More »
When a Picture’s Worth 488 Words
Mike Castle is the presumptive nominee for the GOP senatorial seat in Deleware this fall, or at least that’s what conventional wisdom says. That’s what the power brokers say. And that’s what the MainStreamMedia says. The same folks who insisted that the road back for the GOP lay with Arlen Specter, Charlie Crist, Trey Grayson and Tim Bridgewater are now saying that only Mike Castle | Read More »
Ensuring the “Grand Debacle”
Earlier this week in an interview with Politico re: the 2010 mid-terms, Joe Biden, he of sophomoric wit, brevity and intellect, opined that he didn’t really see what everyone was getting all uptight about. According to the king of plagiarism, he didn’t foresee any “grand debacle” engulfing his Party this November. Now Joe’s not exactly noted for being the most humble guy in the world…nor | Read More »
Is the Impossible Possible?
It has become acceptable except amongst the most ardent of Kool-Aid drinkers in the MainStreamMedia to discuss the possibility that the Republicans might just (gasp) regain control of the House in the Fall elections. However, discussion of actually taking over the Senate in addition to the House has generally been reserved for those of ardent conservative fervor or those under the influence of controlled and | Read More »
If at First You Don’t Succeed….
NY-23. You remember NY-23. You know, the place where the nascent Tea Party movement first spread its political wings and flexed it’s political muscle. The place where 11 GOP county chairman sat behind closed doors and anointed a candidate so liberal that the Democrat candidate actually positioned himself as the conservative in the race. NY-23. The place where prominent conservative Republicans bucked the “Establishment” and | Read More »
