Does Time know what either “fact” or “check” mean?
Since the indictment and conviction of Ted Stevens, Time ran a series on indicted Senators. One that they discussed was John Smith from OH 1803-1809. They describe him as a “Republican” from Ohio. That’s funny. First of all, his party affiliation, as described by the Congressional Bioguide as “Democratic Republican”. Any person who knows anything about American political history knows that this was the predecessor | Read More »
The Obama-Frank defense cuts create an opening
My friend and colleague, Patrick Ottenhoff, had an interesting analysis of Virginia back in June that could be on the money: Major federal contractors set up shop in Northern Virginia and, in turn, subcontracted work to technology firms that hired accountants and lawyers. The young professionals who work at those firms in Tysons Corner, Reston and Ashburn are part of Obama’s core constituency. But the | Read More »

Rokey is all alone with the military ballots he won’t count
Today, the Fairfax Times reports that Rokey Suleman still is not counting those military ballots we have been telling you about: “It kills me to not count those votes,” Suleman said. “As much as I hate the law, I can’t ignore it.” Rokey must know something we don’t know.

Why does Rokey Suleman think our soldiers don’t deserve to vote?
Rokey Suleman is a bad person. Earlier I introduced you to him as someone who is not counting military ballots in Fairfax County, Virginia, in spite of the recommendation of the Virginia Board of Elections.

Ask Rokey Suleman to count the votes of American soldiers
Meet Fairfax Co. Registrar Rokey Suleman. He has decided to reject absentee ballots from American soldiers stationed overseas.

Does EJ Dionne have editors?
In this morning’s Washington Post, EJ Dionne, in a screed against the right, asks: Yet McCain’s own campaign is playing with powerful extremist themes to denigrate Obama. When his running mate, Sarah Palin, first brought up Obama’s association with 1960s radical Bill Ayers, who has become a centerpiece of McCain’s attacks, she accused Obama of “palling around with terrorists.” What other “terrorists” was she thinking | Read More »
Several things to note from the Canadian elections. The Conservatives picked up 19 seats, but only 1.1% of the vote and the lowest turnout in Canadian history. The most significant feature of this election was the collapse of the Liberal Party out west and in Ontario. (they actually beat many polls in Quebec) The socialist party, the New Democratic Party or NDP, cut into Liberal | Read More »
Today, the Canadians vote
Today, Canadians vote. In the last election, the Conservative Party of Canada (CPC) achieved a minority government (meaning the largest block in parliament without having a majority), their first victory since the disastrous election of 1993 when the Progressive Conservatives went from an outright majority to 2 seats. Prime Minster Stephen Harper’s government, elected in February 2006, has been the longest serving minority government in | Read More »

OH SoS rejecting election observers
Early voting is taking place in Ohio. Through the end of the week, people can register and vote on the same day. The Ohio Secretary of State Jennifer Brunner argues that they are merely "casting their ballot" rather than "voting" so the fact that Ohio statute requires 30 days between registering and voting would not interfere. So here is what is happening today. People are | Read More »
Democratic leadership wanted the bailout to fail
Earlier Redstate’s Pejman Yousefzadeh argued that Nancy Pelosi misread her caucus. I have an alternative hypothesis: she wanted the bill to fail. I have three pieces of evidence. First, yesterday, Rep. Jim Clyburn (D-SC), the House Majority Whip told the Politico that he was not whipping the vote and was not asked to whip the vote: Asked about Monday’s vote on the bailout bill, House | Read More »
Hypocritical Obama campaign calls McCain dishonorable
Barack Obama’s campaign demonstrated what shameless hypocrites they are. This morning, they went up with an ad calling John McCain dishonorable and sleazy. Yet on Friday, they released an ad that accused him of not using a computer (a strange accusation). When it turned out that his well-known mobility problem is part of the reason, what do they do?
