Mid-September Polls Are Not The Last Word On Senate Races
The perennial question about election polls is back again, if ever it left: how far can we trust them? Should we disregard all other evidence but what the current polling of individual Senate races tells us – which is, at this writing, that if the election was held today, Republicans would gain 6 seats in the Senate to hold a narrow 51-48 majority? As usual, | Read More »
The National Republican Senatorial Committee Loves the Senate Conservatives Fund (Or At Least Its Money)
Remember how the National Republican Senatorial Committee wanted everyone to know just how terrible the Senate Conservatives Fund is? Remember how NRSC consultants took to op-ed pages, pushed reporters, and tweeted about the lavish and extravagant expenses of SCF? Remember how when a candidate got endorsed by SCF, everyone knew immediately NRSC would support the opposite candidate out of spite? (See e.g. Ben Sasse v. | Read More »
Iowa CBS Affiliate Runs Free Ad for Bruce Braley
You sort of expect liberal media bias at the national level but this astounding segment from a local CBS affiliate out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa ought to count as a donation in kind to Democrat Bruce Braley. Under the guise of “reporting news,” watch as this segment gives the uninterrupted stage to Braley and his surrogates: Nary a word from or about Joni Ernst | Read More »
Will the GOP Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory on Immigration?
For the first time in several years the GOP has opened a polling lead on who voters trust more to handle immigration, a clear reaction to President Obama’s overreach on the issue. However, the responses indicate a more nuanced view of immigration policy than this headline might suggest: Now, 34 percent of voters in the most competitive House and Senate races say they trust the | Read More »
Congress Must Reject President Obama’s Plan for the Syrian Rebels
We as a nation must do something about ISIS. The organization is a threat to our national security. If we do not kill them now, they will come here to kill us. They are not a rational player. They are an apocalyptic player. They do not just have expansionist desires. They have desires to bring about the end of the world to usher in the | Read More »

Rep. Ann Kirkpatrick’s (Arizona-01) campaign float spurns American flag for Mexican one.
I find it fascinating that apparently there’s now a real shortage of American flags among Democratic candidates.

President Bush at Ground Zero. September 14, 2001
From CNN: President Bush arrived on the southern tip of Manhattan on Friday afternoon to see for himself the almost unimaginable devastation meted out upon New York’s financial district, when two 767 jetliners slammed into the World Trade Center’s landmark twin towers during Tuesday’s morning rush. There, he was greeted by a raucous crowd of construction workers and rescue personnel, all of whom seemed recharged | Read More »
Is The Democratic Party Proud of its History of Slavery & Segregation?
Being a Democrat not only means never having to say you’re sorry, but also means getting to pretend that history never happened. The Democrats’ official party website is proof of that, as its section on “Our History” declares, with all the chutzpah of the proverbail defendant who murders his parents and begs the court’s mercy on grounds of being an orphan, that: For more than | Read More »
The Democratic Party’s War on Women rhetoric doesn’t seem to be working.
Hey, at least now we know why the Democrats freaked out when Republicans started talking about making birth control pills available over the counter!

Republican Allies use “War on Women” Rhetoric in Support of Export-Import Bank
The Democrats, wielders of the “War on Women” rhetoric and the ones who made ending “corporate welfare” a party cry, have made a clear exception for the Export-Import Bank. Cronyism is a money-maker and a power guarantee. The hypocrisy alone of a president who ran on leveling the playing field staying silent on this issue. In 2008, we know he ran on ending it. In | Read More »
The Obama administration lied about the situation in Iraq
As we are on the cusp of watching helplessly as Islamic extremists carve a caliphate out of Iraq and Syria we need to ask how did we get in this mess. Though we know we left Iraq precipitously because of Obama’s political calculations we’re only now finding out that the administration was aware the situation was unraveling and lied about it. In an Ask Me | Read More »
Bucket list for a baby
Earlier in the week, I posted on the new memoir by Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis and her effort to make abortion a noble act. For me her description was a chilling example of infanticide Davis, in a copy of the book obtained by the San Antonio Express-News, wrote that her unborn third daughter had an acute brain abnormality. She said doctors told her the | Read More »
Chris Christie and New Jersey’s War on Women and the Second Amendment
I haven’t devoted any time to the Ray Rice affair because celebrity spousal abuse doesn’t interest me. What is interesting is this story and how it might affect the presidential ambitions of Chris Christie. When Ray Rice was videotaped dragging his unconscious wife from an elevator in an Atlantic City, NJ, casino, Prosecutor Jim McClain recommended Rice be placed in a program for first time | Read More »
