The Democrats Hope You Are an Idiot
The crop of Democrats up for election right now were last elected in 2008. For most of the actually vulnerable Democrats, this was the first time they ran for election. All elected Democrats are always at least secretly opposed to any measures that actually promote the national security of the United States of America, and given the mood of the country in 2008 they were | Read More »
Bruce Braley (D CAND, Iowa-SEN)… did *not* vote to authorize air strikes against ISIS.
It doesn’t matter how badly Bruce Braley wants to be the next Senator from Iowa: if he is going to cast votes in Congress, he can do us all the elementary courtesy of paying attention to what he’s voting for.

Iowa CBS Affiliate Runs Free Ad for Bruce Braley
You sort of expect liberal media bias at the national level but this astounding segment from a local CBS affiliate out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa ought to count as a donation in kind to Democrat Bruce Braley. Under the guise of “reporting news,” watch as this segment gives the uninterrupted stage to Braley and his surrogates: Nary a word from or about Joni Ernst | Read More »
Bruce Braley (D CAND, Iowa-SEN): loves fundraisers, shrugs off veterans.

Bruce Braley avoids voters at Iowa State Fair.
When it comes right down to it, the comparison that should be made here should be the one between Bruce Braley and then-Massachusetts Senatorial candidate Martha Coakley.

Bruce Braley (D CAND, Iowa-SEN) equates lawyering to farm work.
I would appreciate it if Bruce Braley would start pacing himself on the stupid things that he says: I don’t think that it’s fair to let one goofball monopolize my attention (and front page space). We have quite a while before November hits, so there’s no reason why Rep. Braley can’t complete his self-humiliation in a measured and efficient fashion. Although I do admit that | Read More »
6 Reasons Why #IA-SEN Candidate @BruceBraley Has Had A Very Bad Week
Iowa Democrat Bruce Braley’s Senate campaign has had a rough week, which has only gotten worse after the now-infamous video of Braley at a Texas fundraiser deriding Chuck Grassley as “a farmer from Iowa”. How bad? Let’s review 6 ways: 1. Everybody’s Piling On The commentary on Braley’s gaffe has been brutal. The Iowa papers have been all over the story, with heavy coverage in | Read More »
Iowa Senate Candidate Bruce Braley Insults Iowa Farmers
You won’t believe what Iowa Congressman Bruce Braley was caught on tape saying about Iowa farmers: Braley, the presumptive Democratic nominee for an open and hotly-contested Senate seat in Iowa, is a lawyer, and a former president of the Iowa Trial Lawyers Association, and he’s speaking here to fellow lawyers at an out-of-state fundraiser, presumably blissfully unaware that things said at fundraisers could be videotaped | Read More »
Sixteen thousand Iowans won’t have health care because of @BruceBraley. #obamacare
Why is that? Nearly 16,000 Iowans who tried to apply for coverage via the glitch-plagued federal health insurance website are being told to apply separately through the state Department of Human Services. The Friday afternoon announcement stems from a kink in healthcare.gov, which is a key part of President Barack Obama’s Affordable Care Act. The issue affects Iowans who entered their information into healthcare.gov and | Read More »
Red state Dems’ deafening ObamaCare silence
Leading Democrats have criticized the president’s implementation of ObamaCare: The Democrats’ majority leader, Sen. Harry Reid, said last week that he agreed with Democrat Sen. Max Baucus of Montana, a Democrat architect of the law, who said about the ObamaCare implementation, “I just see a huge train wreck coming down.” Oregon Sen. Ron Wyden expressed concern about what’s going to happen with young people if | Read More »
Tale from a Purple State
Tale From a Purple State Watching the returns last Tuesday evening (and Wednesday) it was easy for me to be a little disappointed. Of course I think most on this site were probably disappointed as I was that Sharron Angle lost, and maybe that she lost enough that it was an early call Tuesday night. The result (still unfolding) in Alaska was and is certainly | Read More »
Meet Ben Lange (R CAND, IA-01).
We actually talked yesterday, but Ben’s campaign came out with an online ad that they want to showcase. I was happy to oblige; it’s a good ad (and can be seen after the fold). The interview itself is below: Ben’s site is here: he’s up against Bruce Braley, so every little bit helps.
