Politically, I am Through with Sarah Palin
It’s time for a break up. If you haven’t already seen, Sarah Palin has endorsed Bill Walker and Byron Mallott’s Independent-Democrat “Unity” ticket in the Alaska gubernatorial race over Republican incumbent Sean Parnell. She endorses the Independent-Democrat ticket over the man who was her own lieutenant governor. Because of this, as far as Republican politics are concerned, I’m finished with Sarah Palin. I have nothing but | Read More »
Out of Ignorance or Out of Spite?
On more than one occasion in the last couple of weeks (the most vital couple of weeks as we near election day), President Barack Obama has said things that are, simply put, strategically dumb. It’s more than likely that Republicans, barring a tremendous disaster, will take a majority in the Senate this year. The Democrats, even House ones, are struggling in key races, and groups | Read More »
A vote for Democrats is ‘A Vote for President Obama.’
Variants of this are going up in six states: Courtesy of Freedom Partners Action Fund, this is part of a $6.5 million ad buy hitting Alaska, Arkansas, Colorado, Iowa, New Hampshire (online only), and North Carolina. Which is good news, but I have to ask something: how, in God’s name, can anybody look at this and not see it as speech? Just how ignorant do the professional | Read More »
#GA12: Duplicitous John Barrow Can’t get Story Straight on Role in Dredging Port of Savannah
There are still plenty of vulnerable Democrats running for reelection to the House this cycle, and of Georgia’s 12th district happens to be one of the toughest races. First elected in 2005, he represented a district that barely favored Democrats up until the redistricting after the 2010 Census. Now, it has a Cook PVI rating of R+9, but he’s managed to survive for five terms | Read More »
Boo Freaking Hoo
Esquire has a big story for their November magazine on just how awful it is to be a congressman. “We’re in a living hell and don’t know how to get out,” the title declares. The congressmen who talk, many of them on background, reflect that sentiment. Just about everything in the article makes me happy. Why is Congress such a living hell? People in public | Read More »
Republicans Appropriated More for the CDC This Year Than Obama Requested
Democrats, like drug addicts, are convinced that just one more hit of tax dollars will give them the fix they need. Every Democratic response to any situation is to demand government spend more and blame Republicans for not spending as much as they should. The latest Democratic attack is pretty straightforward in its insanity. Because the GOP won’t let the Democrats spend more money, people | Read More »
KS-Sen: Greg Orman holds Fundraiser at Home of Liberal MA Democrat
My fellow Front Pager Leon has already written a great post on why Greg Orman is a Democrat in everything but name, but the problems surrounding Greg Orman don’t stop there. The Washington Examiner reports that he held a fundraiser at the home of Liberal Massachusetts Democrat Chester Atkins, who represented the state’s 5th district in Congress from 1985-1993. Per the Examiner‘s article: Former Democratic Rep. | Read More »
Democrats’ E-mails Descend to Desperation and Farce
It’s always a good idea to keep track of what your opponents are saying. That’s part of RedState’s mission of “Fighting the Left and Cleaning Up the Right”, and it includes, yes, seeing what the Democrats are e-mailing their supporters. I haven’t subscribed to them, but a friend forwards me the ones sent out by the Democratic Party itself and the DSCC. I don’t know | Read More »
RedState Interview: Rick Wilson and I discuss the Democrats’ Cruel Emails of Fear.
In terms of direct influence both Rick and I think these tactics are not going to motivate Democratic voters to go to the polls on Election Day.

Democratic CT State Representative Busted on 19 Charges of Voter Fraud
(H/T: Weaselzippers) Time and again, we hear from the Democrats that voter fraud is not an important issue. Despite their ardent insistence, we continue to see people getting arrested for voter fraud, usually from their own party! Today’s news continues that trend. Democratic Connecticut State Representative Christina Ayala has been arrested on 19 counts of voter fraud. Per the New Haven Register: State Rep. Christina “Tita” Ayala, | Read More »
The Epic #Fail that is the Democrats latest attempt to drive Rush off the Air
At some point, you really have to wonder when they’ll stop trying. Every other attempt the Left has made to get Rush Limbaugh taken off the airwaves has ended in failure, but that hasn’t stopped them from trying, and failing, again and again. This time, though, the effort was especially laughable. As Breitbart describes it: Over the weekend, Democrats launched a campaign to get — in their | Read More »
Generic Congressional Vote Starting to Look Ugly for Democrats
Conventional wisdom about this midterm election is that while Democrats are defending difficult turf in the Senate and face possible substantial losses, the redistricting after the 2010 census eliminated significant numbers of meaningfully competitive House seats, which should prevent an equivalent wave from forming in the House. The way the generic Congressional vote polls are starting to look, the Democrats better hope that this is | Read More »
More DOOM! from the polls. This time it’s Gallup.
Yesterday, Gallup released a poll showing a few things, and none of them are good for Democrats.* The first is that Republicans had expanded their lead over Democrats as the party people believe is best equipped to protect the United States from terrorism: The Republicans’ lead over the Democrats on the question of terrorism is, as you can see, at historic levels. Not since the poll | Read More »
