Joe Biden gave bad (read: illegal) advice on responsible gun use. To his WIFE.
Background: in what may end up being the most epic Joe Biden Opens His Mouth EVER the Vice President told a Facebook ‘town hall’ hosted by Parenting Magazine that he had advised his wife that her proper firearms strategy in case of home invasion should be to… get a shotgun, brandish it, and empty the barrels into the air… Hold up! Wait, wait, I know | Read More »
Joe Biden touts the fiscally progressive ideals of his Delaware homeland.
While I understand that it’s absolutely fascinating to watch Joe Biden campaign on the unique message Let’s have a trillion dollar tax hike! BIDEN: “On top of the trillions of dollars of spending that we have already cut, we’re gonna ask – yes – we’re gonna ask the wealthy to pay more. My heart breaks, come on man. You know the phrase they always use? | Read More »
Green Dogma Run Over By Clunky Karma
“It is a little disconcerting that you pay that amount of money for a car ($100,000) and it lasts basically 180 miles before going wrong,” David Champion, senior director for the magazine’s automotive test center, told Reuters. (HT: Autonews.com) The Fisker Karma has found yet another way to conserve our nation’s precious energy. According to Consumer Reports, it goes 180 miles and then fails. Once | Read More »
Delaware’s Problem Isn’t Christine O’Donnell.
I know that it’s become popular to get all down in the dumps about the Delaware Senate race. I know that it’s all a “done deal” and no amount of campaigning or prodding can change the outcome. The die has been cast. Alea iacta est. These words were made famous when Julius Caesar spoke them as he led his army across the Rubicon. Caesar was | Read More »
O’Donnell, Coons and the Courts
When it comes to the most important qualities we look for in a senator—good ideas, leadership ability, intelligence, articulateness, strong principles, a compelling vision for the future, and the like—Christine O’Donnell stood out as the better choice for Delaware voters during last night’s debate. But the MSM seems to be focusing, instead, on a somewhat less important quality where O’Donnell’s opponent, Chris Coons, might have | Read More »
Double Miracle* Evening Open Thread. *Updated with link to debate*
*Update: Video of the full debate via the Right Scoop.* Tonight there were two miracles, 33 Chilean miners were successfully rescued and Christine O’Donnell trounced Chris Coons in a debate that was focused evenly on character and policy. As the Phoenix capsule rose from deep in the earth pulling one miner after another back to safety, O’Donnell also rose. Christine O’Donnell rose above the personal | Read More »
BREAKING: DSCC Sending Reinforcements to Delaware for Coons
Is the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee a bit concerned about the potential impact of the Tea Party in Delaware or have the Democrats completely written off Carol Shea-Porter running for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District? I ask because the Democrats have sent the lady who was on the ground running operations for Carol Shea-Porter’s congressional bid to Delaware to be the Field Director for Chris | Read More »
A metric ton of new polling today
Good evening. We have a great deal of new polling that’s flooded in. Much of it is interesting too, so rather than pick and choose which polls I’ll cover in depth and which I will omit, instead I’ll give a quick look at all the good ones. We’ve got Senate races in Nevada, Connecticut, West Virginia, Ohio, New York, Missouri, and Delaware, plus races for | Read More »

Let’s Attack Christine O’Donnell’s LinkedIn Page!
Christina Bellantoni, who I’ve been told is the most fair person working at TPM, has a real stretch of an attack on Christine O’Donnell today which uses the candidate’s LinkedIn page to suggest she lied about where she attended school. Yet there’s a real flaw with this argument. Depending on when O’Donnell created her LinkedIn profile, at one point you could only enter educational programs | Read More »
Coons vs. Coons in ‘Biden seat’ rhetoric!
Compare and contrast: “It’s often said that this is Joe Biden’s seat. It’s not. It’s Delaware’s seat.” This would have been a fine statement by Chris Coons (D-CAND, DE-SEN) in last Thursday’s debate*… if only he believed it. You see, one of the people that have often said that the seat in question was “Joe Biden’s seat” is… Chris Coons (D CAND, DE-SEN). We cannot | Read More »
Reid’s Pet (D CAND, DE-SEN) broke promise, raised taxes.
Via The Other McCain and The Tech Guy we see this helpful reminder; as New Castle County’s head official Democratic Senatorial candidate Chris Coons managed to somehow turn an inherited surplus and a firm no-tax pledge into multiple violations of said pledge and Delaware’s most populous county headed towards bankruptcy (by his own admission). And Coons had to preemptively address the tax issue, which is | Read More »
The first post-primary poll in Delaware
I normally like to let these races rest a week before I start looking into the polling, but thanks to one pollster sitting on a pre-primary poll to drop the bomb after the primary, I thought I’d hit today the actual first post-primary poll of the race between Democrat Chris Coons and Republican Christine O’Donnell.
Meet Chris Coons (D CAND, DE-SEN). Harry Reid’s… pet.
Understandable that this would be said of Chris Coons: after all, look at that happy grin! That marvelous posture! That glossy coat… pelt… erm, skin! Admittedly, this isn’t the best example of the breed in the smarts department – Coons admitted to being a Marxist in his more hirsute days, and we all know that Marxism is intellectualism for stupid people – but smarts aren’t | Read More »
GOP, Inc. As Darth Vader Starring Rob Jesmer As the Guy in the Suit
It is a delightful morning. The National Republican Senatorial Committee and the GOP Establishment, including Karl Rove in full on meltdown last night on Fox News, has been beaten yet again in Delaware by the supposedly crazy girl from the fringe who could not possibly take out the 12 time elected Republican Mike Castle. Christine O’Donnell was crazy . . . crazy like a fox. | Read More »
Don’t Repeat the Mistakes of the Past
As an observer, primaries like the sort just concluded in Delaware are incredibly amusing. It’s an opportunity to see bloggers, reporters and flacks who’ve never won anything anywhere declare emphatically that someone will definitely or can’t possibly win in a state they’ve never run a campaign in, and in some of the more absurd cases, have never even been to. The best part is, a | Read More »
