A PSA for former Rep Artur Davis.
Rep. Davis is, of course, the former Democratic candidate for AL-GOV who lost his primary when it turned out that Alabama Democrats actually weren’t ready to vote for an African-American for a statewide race. He’s since then been reassessing his options, but seems to be under a misapprehension: Davis also suggested running as a Republican might be a viable option, but said that the Alabama | Read More »
Artur Davis (D, apostate) admits he got Voter ID wrong.
Which begs the question: what else did former Alabama Congressman Artur Davis* (D) get wrong? I’ve changed my mind on voter ID laws — I think Alabama did the right thing in passing one — and I wish I had gotten it right when I was in political office. [snip] Voting the names of the dead, and the nonexistent, and the too-mentally-impaired to function, cancels | Read More »
Death toll from Southeastern tornadoes at 178.
Most of that is from Alabama, which was hit hard by the storms – but most of the rest of the southeastern part of the country has been hit by the storms, so if you were planning to contribute to the American Red Cross this Christmas, well, they could probably use the help a little sooner than that. Our prayers and good wishes for everyone | Read More »
Malice/Stupidity Watch: Obamaspill edition.
This article by Dick Morris on Alabaman problems with regard to Obamaspill is like Problems With Big Government 120: According to state disaster relief officials, Alabama conceived a plan — early on — to erect huge booms offshore to shield the approximately 200 miles of the state’s coastline from oil. Rather than install the relatively light and shallow booms in use elsewhere, the state (with | Read More »
Clearly, Alabama is ready to defend its title…
…of being the Go-To Place for 2010 Political Ads. First up is DALE PETERSON. I’m capitalizing the name because, well, this ad deserves it: I got nothing to add, except that going from 5% to 28% and pushing out the front-runner is in fact impressive.
State of the Race: Rick Barber (Al-02).
The primary for Alabama is Tuesday, so we checked in with Rick Barber to find out the state of the race: I also asked Rick (like Hot Air Greenroom’s Laura Curtis) why Alabama’s commercials have been so memorable this cycle. Listen for the answer, of course. Rick’s site is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
The WaPo discovers that there are Alabama Democrats.
(Via the Corner) I am not really going to get into the meat of this WaPo article about Alabama candidate for Governor Artur Davis. If the man is going to run on the admittedly sensible notion that being for health care rationing is political suicide in Alabama, then presumably Rep. Davis was already aware that he’d be more or less called a race traitor for | Read More »
Meet Rick Barber (R-CAND, AL-02). [Bumped.]
[UPDATE]: I’m bumping this because I’ve been told that it was Rick’s birthday yesterday. Campaign site here: he’s running for Bobby Bright’s seat. That’s the last CPAC election video that I had today: I have a full slate scheduled for tomorrow, God help me. Crossposted to Moe Lane.
Meet Les Phillip (R CAND, AL-05).
There are still quite a few ones to process from CPAC, so here’s Les Phillip. His website is here. Crossposted to RedState.
Meet Martha Roby (AL-02).
I was going to wait until Ms. Roby had a campaign website up – she only announced last week, and this was Memorial Day weekend – but apparently the local Democrats are already beginning to play the “create multiple accounts and go after her for being a mom*” in local comment sections, so best to get this up now. So. AL-02. R+16 in the Cook | Read More »
