Romney to use Feinstein as a natsec club with which to beat Obama at the VFW convention.
It’s funny. Squint, and you can see where the Obama administration has messed up its national security leak problem to the point where Democratic Senator Dianne Feinstein (up for re-election, by the way) feels the need to criticize said administration for its feckless, juvenile, and callous disregard for proper security and the need to put the country above petty partisan advantage*. Background: Sen. Feinstein was | Read More »
DSCC inadvertently reveals its 2012 battleground?
Not that, if they did, they intended to do that, mind you: they were probably just intending to scare their donors into giving them money (link via @MattCover) by screaming about how us awful, awful Republicans are so insistent that you should show have to show a picture ID when you vote.

At around 12:00 eastern time this afternoon, the group met with Senator Diane Feinstein. Feinstein, a major proponent of the Employee Free Choice Act, broke national news when | Read More »
More games with Electoral results oversight?
OK, let’s walk through. As you no doubt remember, the Federal Election Commission was deadlocked for six months – just in time for the primaries! – because the Democrats objected to one of its proposed new members being appointed. It eventually got resolved when said member withdrew his name. Well, the GOP can’t win every fight in Congress; we are technically in the minority in | Read More »
