GOP candidate attacked because he is Catholic
It is often said that the last acceptable prejudice is anti-Catholicism (though being anti-Christian and anti-male are certainly in the running) and proof of this is on display in Washington state. In the state senate contest between Democrat Shari Song and Demcrat-turned-Republican Mark Miloscia to represent the Federal Way (a city between Seattle and Tacoma) constituency, Miloscia has been attacked for being a Catholic and, well, | Read More »
Study: Illegal votes can determine elections; Voter ID not sufficient
In an interesting op-ed in the Washington Post, Jesse Richman and David Earnest of Old Dominion University (my alma mater), say that not only can vote by non-citizens determine election outcomes — and may very well have done that — but that current Voter ID laws probably don’t offer deterrence. How many non-citizens participate in U.S. elections? More than 14 percent of non-citizens in both | Read More »
Justice Department claims black and Hispanic voters are dumb and unsophisticated
For reasons that can only be ascribed to politics (my gosh, I’m getting so tired of prefacing every single thing this bunch of clowns does with the same phrase), Eric Holder and the wannabe-fascists in his Justice Department are carrying out a jihad on behalf of vote theft. They are doing this by contesting Voter ID laws that are being passed in many states despite | Read More »
The Wild Variations
I have noticed some wild variations in polling in places like South Dakota, Kentucky, and Georgia. Places that should not be in play seem to be in play. What makes it so bizarre is that in these states President Obama remains deeply unpopular. The national polling should flow down into state level polling, but it does not seem to be. In particular, the Georgia polling | 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 »
Rape, Sex Offender, these are subjective terms for Colorado Gov. Hickenlooper
Tonight was the last of the gubernatorial debates in Colorado. Hickenlooper, who is ahead of Bob Beauprez by .2% in the RCP average, finished off his debate series with yet another blooper. The incumbent democrat had what may be considered in Akin moment. When Bob Beauprez brought up the fact that under Gov. Hickenlooper’s watch regulations were put in place that allow sex offenders to | 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.
Politically, I am Through with Sarah Palin
It’s time for a break up. If you haven’t already seen, Sarah Palin has endorsed Bill Walker and Byron Mallott’s Independent-Democrat “Unity” ticket in the Alaska gubernatorial race over Republican incumbent Sean Parnell. She endorses the Independent-Democrat ticket over the man who was her own lieutenant governor. Because of this, as far as Republican politics are concerned, I’m finished with Sarah Palin. I have nothing but | Read More »
Is Islam Compatible with Free Speech?
Via Eugene Volokh comes some welcome news for watchers of First Amendment jurisprudence, as the Sixth Circuit has decided to rehear a “heckler’s veto” case concerning an incident that happened a couple years ago in Michigan. Briefly summarized, the city of Dearborn, MI, which has a large Arab American population, annually holds an Arab International Festival that is free and open to the public. As | Read More »
What the Heck is Happening in Georgia?
Freak out!!!!!! At least that seems to be the GOP’s reaction to the polling in Georgia. Relax people. We are going into overtime for sure in the Senate race. That runoff will be in 2015. Georgians will have to endure two of the smuggest politicians ever to run for office for two more month. But hey! For those of us with radio shows in Atlanta, | Read More »
Bristol Palin, Chrissy Teigen, and the misogyny of the American Left
This week has provided an interesting example of how, in the left’s mind, the famed #WarOnWomen only pertains to women who are on the left or with whom they have sympathy. Earlier in the week, the infamous Palin family brawl that eventually saw 24 year old Bristol Palin knocked down, was a news item. This was a shameful incident by any standards. But what was | Read More »
New Ebola screening is an epic failure
It certainly didn’t take long for that system to break down. On Wednesday, CDC Director Tom Frieden announced new screening for all passengers traveling from one of the nations with an active Ebola outbreak: People arriving in the U.S. from Ebola-affected countries in West Africa will be actively monitored for symptoms for 21 days after they land. The new monitoring regime announced by Centers for | Read More »
Michelle Nunn Doesn’t Understand Basic Economics
Michelle Nunn has been getting a lot of traction on the “shipping jobs overseas” rhetoric in an effort to paint her opponent, David Purdue, as unsympathetic to American workers. It’s a tactic toward anyone who is in business to them demagogue for shipping jobs overseas, just like they did to Romney in 2012. Michelle’s cheap shots have lead her to create an ad campaign specifically | Read More »

What type of people cause it? What can be done? All of these questions have apocryphal answers. Ted Lewis, in one of the best noir fiction novels ever; gives us intelligent speculations. The novel Jack’s | Read More »
