Second look: Democrats in PA-08 go far out on the #Obamacare branch.
Meant to front this NRCC diary yesterday, but got hung up on stuff. Short version: the PA-08 race has been amusingly complicated on the Democratic side by the fact that both Democratic candidates are on the record as supporting taxpayer-funded gender reassignment surgery. And that’s pretty much it. Go read the rest: I meant to promote it, remember?
MSNBC’s Alex Wagner: The IRS Is The REAL Victim Here
On MSNBC last night, host Alex Wagner continued her ongoing “leave the IRS alone” theme with a defense of the organization and its key players that tread into the territory of virtuosity in the art of reversing the spin.

History’s Greatest Event
This coming week starts the anniversary celebrations of the greatest event in history.

Rep. Colleen Hanabusa (D, Hawaii-1) is distancing herself from #obamacare. Quietly.

After Volkswagen Loss, UAW Bosses Turn To Bovine Excrement Manufacturing
Ever since the majority of Volkswagen’s employees in Chattanooga rejected the United Auto Workers in February, Detroit-based UAW bosses have appeared more than a little desperate in their claims that the their loss was due to “outside influences.” Now, they seem more interested in having a “show trial” for the media than focusing on the real reasons for their loss. This is aside from the | Read More »
BREAKING: White House Admits Democrats Will Lose the Senate
Put another way, Kathleen Sebelius has resigned and “Senior Administration Officials” are telling the media it is because of healthcare.gov.

Foxhole Conversions vs. Real Commitments
Politicians are no different than any other salesman trying to market a product or service. When they are challenged by competition and when voters are presented with choices, they begin to improve their representation.

Eric Holder’s Hissy Fits
The irony was just too much. Last night Attorney General — and unindicted co-conspirator in the death of a US Border Patrol agent and a few hundred Mexican civilians — Eric Holder addressed a meeting of the ongoing RICO conspiracy founded by the “Reverend” Al Shaprton, the National Action Network. That Eric Holder would address a group devoted to racial grievance mongering is unremarkable. Eric | Read More »
