Poor Robin Carnahan. It was *not* a good week for her.
After a week like this, Robin Carnahan was probably wishing she was a banking executive lawyer again, because running for Senate was not kind to her. In an interview with the Kansas City Star, Carnahan made reference to our dependence on foreign oil: “We’re swapping depending on foreign oil with dependence on Chinese-made wind turbans (sic) and solar cells,” she said. Um, Ms. Carnahan – | Read More »
Hayworth, Brewer running weak in the General?

Carly Fiorina rakes in the pro-life endorsements
First Susan B. Anthony’s list endorsed Carly Fiorina in the Republican Senate primary here in California, and now via Flash Report we find that the California Pro-Life Council, the California affiliate of National Right to Life, has joined in endorsing Fiorina. This comes after she snagged Tom Coburn’s support. Clearly, behind closed doors she’s convincing people. At this point I’d love to be able to | Read More »

Tim Burns consolidates his lead
It’s late in the day but I know this race is drawing plenty of interest, so here goes. Daily Kos and Research 2000 hit the PA-12 Special Election. This makes two consecutive polls from sources that lean toward the Democrats. But do Republicans have reason to complain?

Georgia real estate mogul Ray Boyd announced Monday he would run for governor of the Peach State as an Independent, pledging to spend $2 million of his own money on the race.

Time for change – in both Washingtons
This year, Americans will have an historic opportunity to “break up” with the Washington insiders and career politicians who have wrested control of our government and hijacked our institutions and democratic processes.One such figure is Sen. Patty Murray, the fourth-ranking member of Democrat leadership in the Senate. Sen. Murray was first elected to the Senate by the good people of my state, Washington, back in | Read More »
Fight and Win, Politically.
There are those on the right who now believe that the passage of Obamacare is inevitable. I don’t know; I don’t think public whip counts are worth the pixels they’re printed on. But I also know that elections have consequences, and up to now it’s been remarkable just how much a complete failure President Obama has been in achieving his platform. It won’t surprise me | Read More »

So Robin, tell us what part of Obamanomics you don’t like…
Following now-Senator Scott Brown’s supermajority-busting win of TedKennedy’sSeat™ in Massachusetts, the Democrat rats are quickly leaping from the Obama sinking ship. The latest “run away” moment comes on the heels of the Obama FY2011 budget proposal. Unsurprisingly, the POTUS continues his trillion dollar deficit extravaganza, even after his laughable attempt to feign fiscal responsibility by recommending a so-called “spending freeze.” as part of his proposal.

Pro-Life Hero: The Real Kelly Ayotte
Good post from Swamp Yankee in favor of Kelly Ayotte. — Erick Perhaps the most important Supreme Court decision regarding abortion in recent years was Ayotte v. Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. Yes, that Ayotte, Kelly Ayotte. Another time, a more detailed diary on the legal merits of that case may be warranted, but a quick summary should suffice for now. At issue in | Read More »
