In Tennessee’s 6th District, Underdog Kerry Roberts is the Conservative Choice
The famous 1960 Presidential debate between John F. Kennedy and Richard Nixon proved to be a turning point in electoral politics, bringing a candidate’s on-screen appeal into play as one of, if not the leading factor in their odds of being elected. Political Science majors are constantly reminded of this example from the first day of their freshman year, and political candidates are constantly reminded | Read More »

It’s coming. The tidal wave of anger that swept Republicans into power in 1994 looms on the horizon as Democrats announce their retirement one by one. In my own home district, Congressman Bart Gordon recently declared that he would not seek re-election. Gordon generally wins by wide margins, but in a district that favored McCain by 25-points over Obama, perhaps the Congressman saw the proverbial writing on the | Read More »
Lou Ann Zelenik For Congress in TN-06
In the Republican primary for the open Tennessee 6th district, there are 2 major choices so far. 1. State Senator Jim Tracy, who voted in 6 Democratic primaries, and possibly for Al Gore in a Presidential Primary he voted in. 2. The other is former Rutherford County Republican Party Chairwoman, Lou Ann Zelenik. She has been an active member in the TEA Party movement. She | Read More »
Zach Wamp’s Sponsorship of H.R. 413 Forced Unions for Public Safety Employees
Zach Wamp who is running in the Tn Republican Governor Primary is continually calling his credentials as a fiscal conservative, free market supporter and pro-US Constitutionalist. I’m finding that Wamp is more a political animal than any of the positive principled values noted above. This pro union, anti states rights push with H.R. 413 shows the farce of the Wamp Campaign. We do have the | Read More »

Bart Gordon (D, TN-06) called upon to reimburse taxpayers for European ski jaunt.
If you might remember, back in February it was reported that Bart Gordon (D, TN-06) went to Europe on taxpayer money to… essentially, ski. He wasn’t on any relevant committee that would justify his presence in that particular junket, but he is a twelve-term Democrat whose party overwhelmingly controls Congress right now, which apparently is justification enough. Now Dave Evans, Gordon’s most likely Republican challenger | Read More »
Rep Bart Gordon (D, TN-06) junketing to Europe for no real reason?
Apparently, he’s going to be part of quite the throng. Via Red County and Dave Evans for Congress comes this WaPo report: Hurry, hurry, hurry. Congress will begin its 2009 travel season in earnest this weekend with two spectacular codels — trips for House congressional delegations — that are not to be missed. On Saturday, Rep. John Tanner (D-Tenn.), chairman of the House delegation to | Read More »
