It’s Game On in Alabama and Mississippi
We have spent all year inveighing against flaccid Republicans capitulating to the forces of big government. Well, as the polls open in Alabama and Mississippi, now is our time to shine. No – I’m not referring to the presidential election where we have a choice between several ‘evils of three lesser;’ I’m referring to the congressional elections. As we noted last week, Spencer Bachus (Al-6) | Read More »
Take Out Bonner and Bachus in Alabama
Last week, I bemoaned the fact that Alabama is one of the most conservative states, yet it sports a mediocre congressional delegation. Alabama has one of the earliest congressional primaries; they will overlap with the presidential primary this coming Tuesday. It turns out that several of the incumbents have primary challengers. The one sane Republican in the state, Mo Brooks (CD-5) is being challenged by | Read More »
Your Entire House Delegation is Fired!
“The Tea Party was born out of the conviction that gov’t shouldn’t pick winners and losers, yet that is all these losers have done in Congress.” If you think that the 2010 elections cleared out all of the dead wood from the House, you need to think again. If you think that our only intra-party problems emanate from blue-district Republicans, you need a reality check. | Read More »
A PSA for former Rep Artur Davis.
Rep. Davis is, of course, the former Democratic candidate for AL-GOV who lost his primary when it turned out that Alabama Democrats actually weren’t ready to vote for an African-American for a statewide race. He’s since then been reassessing his options, but seems to be under a misapprehension: Davis also suggested running as a Republican might be a viable option, but said that the Alabama | Read More »
Your non-political post of the day: The BCS Championship
Should Alabama or Oklahoma State play LSU for the BCS Championship? Vote below the fold.
Artur Davis (D, apostate) admits he got Voter ID wrong.
Which begs the question: what else did former Alabama Congressman Artur Davis* (D) get wrong? I’ve changed my mind on voter ID laws — I think Alabama did the right thing in passing one — and I wish I had gotten it right when I was in political office. [snip] Voting the names of the dead, and the nonexistent, and the too-mentally-impaired to function, cancels | Read More »
Attrition Through Enforcement Immigration Policy Works in Alabama
Proponents of illegal immigration and open borders are constantly propagating a straw-man argument for amnesty that offers false policy choices. They contend that “we cannot possibly send back the illegals without physically deporting every one of them, and therefore, we are forced to grant them amnesty, in addition to a ‘pathway to citizenship.’ Those with some sense of sanity have always realized that the source | Read More »

Tech at Night: Hacker threats and arrests, we must defeat Patent Reform and the Texas Amazon Tax, Sprint’s spending exposed
The cyberterrorist groups Anonymous and its apparent splinter group Lulzsec are getting bold. The latter gang of criminals is attempting to blackmail the United States Government after attacking government networks, which is just insane and I hope will lead to mass arrests. While the former is attacking the Spanish government after arrests made there, and suffering further damage from mass arrests in Turkey. I hope | Read More »

Death toll from Southeastern tornadoes at 178.
Most of that is from Alabama, which was hit hard by the storms – but most of the rest of the southeastern part of the country has been hit by the storms, so if you were planning to contribute to the American Red Cross this Christmas, well, they could probably use the help a little sooner than that. Our prayers and good wishes for everyone | Read More »
Rick Barber for Congress
One of my big, big regrets this campaign season is that I have not been able to get over to Alabama to do an event with Rick Barber. He has asked and I very much wanted to, but my schedule has made it impossible. But I want to help and I want you to help. Rick Barber is going to be one heck of an | Read More »
Byrne For Alabama
Alabama voters head to the polls on Tuesday and I haven’t had as much to say about this race as I should. I’m supporting Bradley Byrne. Unions in Alabama are doing everything in their power to stop him — spending millions on him. His opponent, Robert Bentley, regularly sided with the Alabama teachers union to stop school reform in Alabama. People always make jokes about | Read More »
Malice/Stupidity Watch: Obamaspill edition.
This article by Dick Morris on Alabaman problems with regard to Obamaspill is like Problems With Big Government 120: According to state disaster relief officials, Alabama conceived a plan — early on — to erect huge booms offshore to shield the approximately 200 miles of the state’s coastline from oil. Rather than install the relatively light and shallow booms in use elsewhere, the state (with | Read More »
The Battle Moves to Colorado
Conservatives did a marvelous job rallying in South Carolina and Utah. Nikki Haley, Tim Scott, and Jeff Duncan scored major conservative victories in South Carolina. Mike Lee will go on to be the next senator from Utah. The next big race will be Ken Buck vs. Jane Norton in Colorado. And conservatives need to rally to Ken Buck. Already the Norton campaign has gone totally | Read More »
Clearly, Alabama is ready to defend its title…
…of being the Go-To Place for 2010 Political Ads. First up is DALE PETERSON. I’m capitalizing the name because, well, this ad deserves it: I got nothing to add, except that going from 5% to 28% and pushing out the front-runner is in fact impressive.
