Understanding Carly Fiorina
We endorsed Chuck DeVore in the GOP California Senate primary over Carly Fiorina. We did so because of DeVore’s proven record of staunch conservatism — which he continues fighting for now, having just helped kill a California open-carry ban — but also because we didn’t really trust or know anything about Fiorina. Carly’s conservative record was thin to nonexistent, and there were many troubling signs | Read More »
So Wait A Second! DeVore Polls Better Against Boxer Than Fiorina, But We’re Supposed to go With Carly?!?!
Somewhere along the way someone forgot one of the chief rules of politics: win the general election. We have been so focused on primaries, we’re forgetting that the endgame is victory in November not [insert your primary date here]. I remember in one of the campaign books James Carville and Paul Begala wrote that was actually very good (complete with a great pancake recipe), they | Read More »
Barbara Boxer Imploding
Matt Lewis has post up at Townhall about the implosion of Barbara Boxer, perhaps the most detestable of all United States Senators. Boxer, who ironically has a five letter last name that starts with a “B” just like the word that most accurately describes her, wants to use congressional power to harass the people who leaked the climategate emails. She does not, however, want to | Read More »
Barbara Boxer & Lamar Alexander vs. Jim DeMint & Mitch McConnell
I’ve been meaning to give praise to Mitch McConnell since last week when he began voting against appropriations measures coming out of the Senate. This is a rare thing for McConnell, who normally sides with the appropriators. But he stood up and voted no last week, siding with the Senate conservatives. It was a bold move worthy of praise. Something has happened this week too. | Read More »
Lamar Alexander Plays Lapdog to Barbara Boxer and Endorses Government Mandated, Tax-Payer Funded Abortion
Can someone fly in some Honduran soldiers to load Lamar Alexander (R-TN) up on a plane and fly in to Costa Rica? Get him out of the country. Come on — if this is the future leadership of the Republican Party, we need a coup*. Jim DeMint has scored some damn effective points against Barack Obama this week by calling healthcare Obama’s “Waterloo.” It got | Read More »
There is a rumor in Washington that Senator John Cornyn is desperately trying to get Insurance Commissioner Steve Poizner to jump into the California Senate race against Chuck Devore in the GOP Primary. Poizner is running for Governor currently. Right now, the only Republican in the race is Chuck Devore. He is battling Mrs. “Ma’am” Boxer, the little lady who likes to be called Senator | Read More »
Senator Boxer needs to put on some big girl panties and suck it up.
Goodness. It reminds me of a female colleague on my local city council who always gets on a high horse about wasting time on frivolous matters, then getting upset at a city employee referring to a “gentlemen’s agreement.” Senator Boxer, you see, did not like being called “Ma’am” by a General. So the men have no problem with “Sir,” but Miss Boxer does not like | Read More »
Chuck Devore’s Mission
CHECK OUT www.chuckdevore.com Late last week, I interviewed Chuck Devore, a California Assemblyman representing Orange County. Mr. Devore intends to challenge Barbara Boxer in 2010 for the United States Senate. He is an interesting candidate and a compelling choice for Republicans to embrace early. Devore represents the Republican bastion of Orange County that, demographically, is slowly turning from red to blue. Despite the demographic change, | Read More »
