Obama schools John Hickenlooper on pool and politics
When he was hiding out from the media after his failure to deal with the border crisis several weeks ago, Barack Obama came to Denver for a photo-op and a Democrat fundraiser. Even though Senator Mark Udall was unwilling to appear in public with the Golfer-in-Chief, Colorado’s Governor had no such reservations, finding time to share a beer a play some pool. During their game, John | Read More »
Travis Co. Investigator Says Perry Innocent in CPRIT Matter
A theory floated by Texas Democrats about the recent indictment of Gov. Rick Perry (R) has been proved false by a Travis County investigator. Perry was accused by a grand jury of abusing the power of his office when he vetoed funds for the state-funded Public Integrity Unit overseen by Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg.

Another Species Has Gone Extinct
My most frustrating moments on CNN were during the course of 2009 and early 2010 special elections. In several cases they went to the Democrats. The liberal on with me would make a passionate case that this was a harbinger of future Democratic successes in 2010 and I would be forced to point out that special elections are rarely harbingers of anything. That is true. | Read More »
Democrats paying their minority staffers around 3/5th of White staffers’ salaries.
Fine, fine: it’s more like seven-tenths. Three-fifths has more of a… resonance, though. …there is a racial pay gap in campaign politics. Asian, Black and Latino staffers are paid less than their white counterparts, according to an analysis by the New Organizing Institute. For example, African-American staffers on Democratic campaigns were paid 70 cents for each dollar their white counterparts made. For Hispanic staffers in Democratic | Read More »
Democrats of Unknown Party Affiliation
The similarities to 2006 keep mounting. The latest of these is that Democrats running even in blue or purple territory are running away from their party affiliation.

Racist Juan Williams strikes again!
According to Webster’s Dictionary, racism is a belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities. In other words, the race of an individual pretty much decides the character and actions taken by an individual. This has often been understood to mean how a white person might treat a non-white person, particularly blacks. However, since the election of America’s first half-black / | Read More »

The Democrats’ 2014 problem in one sentence.
I think a person may be forgiven if he or she thinks that a ‘policy’ that plans to “expand education opportunities, empower women in the workplace and promote domestic job creation” is actually a code phrase for “we’re just going through the motions.”

#GAGov: Jason Carter Doesn’t Want to Talk about Gay Marriage
Carter is, of course, the grandson of Jimmy Carter, who was until recently the worst President since WWII. Anyways, he’s running against incumbent Republican Nathan Deal this November, and he apparently really doesn’t want to talk about how he feels about gay marriage. Jim Galloway’s Political Insider blog at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution tells us that he recently spoke at a LGBT fundraiser in Atlanta last Thursday organized | Read More »
House Democrats Claim “Momentum” For 2014
The eerie similarities between the Republican disaster in 2006 and the coming Democrat disaster in 2014 continue to mount. The latest is a fairly desperate memo from DCCC chair Steve Israel which purports to show that Democrats have “momentum” heading into the 2014 elections based on some evidence that could most charitably be characterized as “flimsy”: House Democrats head into the August congressional recess and | Read More »

ProTip: Don’t Tweet The N-Word…Ever
There are just some things you don’t do; one of them is tweeting out the N-word. In fact, if you want a career in almost anything, tweeting obscene material is just asinine. Well, for Democrat Kevin Strouse, he learned that one of his staffers actually did all of those things. In his battle to unseat incumbent Republican Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick, this is an embarrassing distraction. | Read More »

The Ridiculous Handwringing of the Overthinking GOP
Byron York tells us the GOP is worried they may get their strategy wrong in 2014. Back in 1998, you see, they made it about Bill Clinton and got spanked. They expected to pick up seats, but they lost seats. But in this entire piece from Byron, there is one word missing — “Gallup”. Republicans in 1998 faced an incumbent President with popularity above 60% | Read More »
