The Most Dishonest TV Ad this Election Season
This election season has seen a number of ads that are real doozies in terms of flat-out lies and distortions. It’s no surprise, with the number of politicians who are struggling to keep their jobs, to see desperation tactics in widespread use. However, by far the most dishonest TV ad yet this election season doesn’t even concern a politician at all, it concerns Amendment 1 | Read More »
Boo Freaking Hoo
Esquire has a big story for their November magazine on just how awful it is to be a congressman. “We’re in a living hell and don’t know how to get out,” the title declares. The congressmen who talk, many of them on background, reflect that sentiment. Just about everything in the article makes me happy. Why is Congress such a living hell? People in public | Read More »
How Ebola Turned Senator Kay Hagan Into A Fire-Breathing !RACIST!
We’ve been told it’s !RACIST! to demand a travel ban on lights from countries that are suffering from the current Ebola epidemic in Western Africa. Streiff told us all about how Nate Silver Voxsplained* how ineffective a travel ban would be.

If You Vote Republican, The Confederacy Wins (Or Something LIke That)
The New York Times had a story over the weekend that an internal polling memo shows the Democrats must get black voters mobilized ASAP to win. If black voters do not get mobilized, the Democrats are toast. Within a day of the New York Times story, a flyer was found on cars parked at a Fayetteville, NC church for Sunday service. The flyer had a | Read More »

He is in the Georgia State Senate. Over the weekend, Carter participated in a gubernatorial debate and all but admitted he supports gay marriage. You can hear what he said for yourself.

Tech at Night: The real motivation of the Net Neutrality gang
I like to point out how the Net Neutrality / Title II Reclassification gang makes inconsistent arguments, for example complaining about ‘fast lanes’ even as it pushes for Title II which would allow ‘fast lanes’.
Well, it turns out if you scratch beneath that inconsistent surface, you get the real motivation: “to hobble corporations”. They think that’s the job of the FCC.

You Will Be Made to Care
Every want to know how campaigns target precincts and work on vote totals? In tonight’s show I explained how campaigns work behind the scenes. Then I did a pivot. From Houston to Idaho, gay rights activists are going to make you care. I dive deep tonight.
“Abortion Barbie” Wendy Davis is a Truly Horrible Person. But We Already Knew That.
Wendy Davis rose to fame championing the ability to rip children’s skulls open, vacuum out their brains, then rip them apart. But she did it in pink sneakers, so the media loves her. That is the only reason Wendy Davis is the Texas Democrats’ nominee. She got a Vogue profile referencing her “Barbie like good looks,” a Maria Shriver hagiography for NBC, and a lot | Read More »
Joe Biden As Reverend DIMmesdale
Biden has sponsored more damaging drug war legislation than any Democrat in Congress. Hate the way federal prosecutors use RICO laws to take aim at drug offenders? Thank Biden. How about the abomination that is federal asset forfeiture laws? Thank Biden. Think federal prosecutors have too much power in drug cases? Thank Biden. Think the title of a “Drug Czar” is sanctimonious and silly? Thank | Read More »

John Hickenlooper stole this man’s justice
Elections matter, and real people can be hurt by a politician’s decisions, or even the lack thereof. Last year, when Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper gave a temporary reprieve to mass murderer Nathan Dunlap, people were hurt. Meet Dennis O’Connor, a father who lost his daughter and had waited 20 years for justice, when Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper threw his life into further limbo by refusing | Read More »
Don’t worry about Ebola because everything else is working fine
Now that the administration’s campaign to stop the spread of Ebola and “degrade and destroy” ISIS are going so swimmingly, let’s take a quick look at how Obama is kicking major butt in the rest of the world. Back in July, I posted on how Hungary was moving slowly and inexorably into Moscow’s orbit. NATO, for the Democrats reading this, is a NATO member. Moscow | Read More »
Mitch McConnell: I stand with Obama on Ebola
In a stunning interview, Senate minority leader took the side of Barack Obama over that of most of his caucus on the subject of managing Ebola, ignoring both the administration’s ineptitude and basic principles of epidemiology. Senate Minority Leader (R-Ky.) thinks the United States should heed expert advice on whether to impose flight restrictions on Ebola-stricken countries in West Africa, contrary to what some lawmakers | Read More »
White House continues to pushback on calls for Ebola travel ban
For reasons that are not entirely clear, but seem to have more to do with ego than anything else, the administration has dug in it s heels on the issue of a travel ban affecting nations with active Ebola outbreaks. Over the weekend, they enlisted baseball analyst, poll analyst, and erstwhile shill, Nate Silver, to make the case that a travel ban could not work | Read More »
