Independent, NAMED sources: Mary Burke fired from family business for incompetence.
Come, I will conceal nothing from you: when I heard that Mary Burke had been essentially accused of being a nepotism-loving nincompoop who had to be fired from her father’s company (Trek Bicycle Corp) because she couldn’t hack the family business, I… shrugged. The original story had one named source – former Trek HR director Gary Ellerman, who is now the chairman of the Jefferson County Republican Party – | Read More »
If Ebola-treating medical personnel won’t self-quarantine, they must be quarantined anyway.
This passage from Hot Air sums up the current administration-friendly rhetoric over Ebola and quarantines nicely. Short version: the nurse who went overseas to treat Ebola patients, came back, had a fever, got isolated while they tested her, was released to Maine, and announced that she would be the judge of her own quarantining has just been told by Maine officials that no, they will be the judges. In other words, it’s only going | Read More »
New Hampshire, Vermont: look, all those states look alike to Elizabeth Warren.
You really don’t expect to care about New Hampshire, can you? The Senator can barely muster up enough energy to care about Massachusetts. So it’s not really surprising to hear that the woman apparently can’t be bothered to remember which state pretends to be from:
The Mark of the Udall Curse now damaging all other Udall candidacies THROUGHOUT SPACE AND TIME.
…OK, maybe that’s me being silly. But ‘s (D, NM) most recent Albuquerque Journal poll is the worst we’ve seen yet for him. Admittedly, 50-43 over Allen Weh is still a very good place for Udall to be, a week out – but keep an eye on this one, maybe. ‘s campaign taints all Democratic things that it touches with its mediocrity: it’s entirely possible that | Read More »
Lame duck PotUS asks two 2016 contenders to reverse popular Ebola quarantine proceedings. #ebola
Well, when you put it that way (note: the NYT has since changed the text without noting those changes)… The Obama administration has been pushing the governors of New York and New Jersey to reverse their decision ordering all medical workers returning from West Africa who had contact with Ebola patients to be quarantined, an administration official said on Sunday. But both governors, Andrew M. Cuomo | Read More »
MSNBC: those Nazis in Texas with their driver’s license laws! (…Which are much like, erm, Maryland’s*.)
OK, let’s set the scene: [Lynne] Messinger said she spoke to a clerk at the desk, and explained that she had a California driver’s license. She has houses in both California and Texas and goes back and forth between the two, but decided several years ago to switch her voting residency to Texas. The clerk left for a few minutes, then told her to take | Read More »
American Bridge’s (read: Michelle Nunn’s) incompetent attempt to smear David Perdue.
I know that I wrote this up already, but I did before I got some critical information on the subject. To recap: this afternoon, [Brad] [Oops! – ML] Woodhouse (chief minion of the rabid Democratic lackeys over at American Bridge) thought that he had done his part for Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn by peddling out a fake story that Republican candidate David Perdue had signed a | Read More »
OK, let us address Vincent Sheheen calling Nikki Haley a ‘wh*re.’
See, this is why we can’t have nice things. Background: Vincent Sheheen, the slowly-drowning Democratic nominee for South Carolina governor, had this to say yesterday about Governor Nikki Haley.
White House pretends that not trusting them on immigration is crazy-talk.
There are times when I don’t really get this administration’s messaging strategy. The White House said Wednesday it was “crazy” to attempt to divine the president’s post-election plans for an immigration executive order based on a procurement request issued by the Department of Homeland Security. “I mean, this is crazy,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest said, adding he would caution reporters against “making assumptions” based on | Read More »
A vote for Democrats is ‘A Vote for President Obama.’
Variants of this are going up in six states: Courtesy of Freedom Partners Action Fund, this is part of a $6.5 million ad buy hitting Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire (online only), and North Carolina. Which is good news, but I have to ask something: how, in God’s name, can anybody look at this and not see it as speech? Just how ignorant do the professional | Read More »
Harry Reid’s Ebolan Roulette.
Specifically, the Surgeon General nomination. Why is Vivek Murthy’s nomination stalled, again? Well, as Byron York reminds us it’s primarily because wants it stalled: It would take just 51 of the Senate’s 55 Democrats to confirm Murthy. But that confirmation has not happened. “There is bipartisan opposition, so [Reid] hasn’t even tried to bring him to a vote,” says another senior Senate GOP aide. Consider this the | Read More »
Somebody at @TexasAFP has a truly VICIOUS sense of humor.
I approve. Get a head start by voting early this year! Early voting in Texas starts October 20th and ends October 31st. pic.twitter.com/b6LMyUIpmy — AFP – Texas (@TexasAFP) October 20, 2014 Moe Lane (crosspost) PS: It occurs to me that people who were never Democrats may not get the full effect of that poster.
