Has the world changed?
After 12 years of nearly complete control of Florida politics, Republicans lost the state to Obama. But, although Obama won Florida, the Democrats didn’t. While Obama was carrying Florida by over 3%, Democrats were picking up only one seat in both houses of the Legislature, which remain overwhelmingly Republican.
Why I stay in the Democratic Party
Why does a conservative stay in the Democratic Party? Because Republicans can’t decide whether Stevens should be kicked out. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/nation/story/773542.html Because Republicans steal (I’m sorry, misappropriate) campaign funds. http://www.miamiherald.com/news/southflorida/story/773519.html And, because they just don’t get it.
Is there any space for conservative Democrats?
I’m a conservative Democrat, a former elected official and a current elected county (Democratic) party official. I could not get behind Obama, so I followed the advice of Old Thom Paine (“Lead, follow, or get out of the way.”) From convention to election, I got out of the way. I stepped back from my party and the so called ‘progressive’ blogs. Now that the election | Read More »
This is the saddest thing that I read today.
OK. I need you folks to do something for me. First off, I need you to trust me. Second, I need you to center yourselves, get your mental equilibrium level, balance your chi, let the Love that surpasseth all understanding fill your heart… all of you have some reliable way to find inner peace, so at least make an effort to get there.

The New York Times spanks Chris Dodd for stonewalling.
I give them ten out of ten for yelling at him over this… Senator Dodd’s Notion of Courtesy After reports emerged in June about him having received favorable treatment on two home mortgages from the Countrywide Financial Corporation, Senator Christopher Dodd, a Democrat from Connecticut, promised that he would release documents to support his contention that he never benefited financially from the terms of the | Read More »
200,000 questionable ballots in Ohio.
All of this H/T AoSHQ, by the way. Anyway, in reverse order: Michelle Malkin has the details about the Vote from Home idiots, a bunch of whom took the time to get absentee ballots that they didn’t have a right to have while engaging in voter registration fraud in Ohio. Yes, I think that being caught committing actual voter fraud pretty much eliminates any hope | Read More »
I say that Rahm Emanuel (D, IL-5) is lying about his prior knowledge of Tim Mahoney’s (D, FL-16) crime.
I’m sorry, but I’m not a Democrat: the mushroom treatment doesn’t work on me. So when a Democratic politician attempts to lie his way out of trouble, I get peeved. Let’s walk through this. Gateway Pundit reported last month that Tim Mahoney (D, FL-16) was involved in a sex scandal in which he paid off a former mistress, allegedly using campaign funds. That is, by | Read More »

The New York Post counts 15 states where ACORN’s been doing vote fraud.
Triggered by reports about the Democratic Party ally ACORN’s behavior in Ohio, this time (H/T: PolitickerOH: Vote-Fraud-A-Go-Go Let every vote count, is the Democratic Party’s mantra these days.

ACORN: We’re too incompetent to avoid committing election fraud!
It’s an ACORN sort of day, apparently. The Democrat-affiliated group is claiming basic incompetence as a defense against its odd habit of being the subject of voter-fraud probes (H/T: Thurber’s Thoughts): Voter-registration can’t be totally fraud-free, group says Voter-registration group cites lack of resources A national voter-registration group admitted to Cuyahoga County election officials Tuesday that it cannot eliminate fraud from its operation.

Hey, they indicted that Democrat who hacked Palin’s email!
Caleb Howe has the details about David Kernell. Please remember: there is no indication at this time that Tennessee Democrat Mike Kernell (the father of David Kernell) was involved in this felonious assault on Sarah Palin.

It means something like “Every man for himself.”
Then I heard an all-hands call on my helmet that I never want to hear again. “Sauve qui peut! Home! Home! Pickup and home! Any beacon that you can hear. Six minutes! All hands, save yourselves, pick up your mates. Home on any beacon! *Sauve qui – *“ I hurried. Robert Heinlein, Starship Troopers, page 110 Why am I quoting that book? Oh, no reason: | Read More »
Where is Hillary Clinton?
Since Obama’s coronation and McCain’s bold selection of Governor Sarah Palin as his VP choice we’ve seen worse and more blatant misogynism than ever thrown at Clinton during the primary. Obama’s cult following, nutroots gangs, and media have savaged Palin and her family with derogatory, sexist, and vicious rants that have no place in any public or private conversation, much less as part of the | Read More »
