Reviewing the November Fundraising Numbers.
It’s that time again. Short version: the RNC & NRSC beat out their Democratic counterparts – which is odd, considering that they’re the groups giving the Republican base the most aggravation; the NRCC pulled in less than the DCCC; the Democrats have a pretty good COH advantage (although the RNC spent a bunch of money in November); and the Democrats apparently aren’t planning to retire | Read More »
An opportunity and the RIGHT thing to do….
WE have all heard how Obama and his Democrats who LOVE the unions and by LOVING them more then “the children” have thrown 3,000 families in DC to the proverbial curb. These children have worked very hard and earned the RIGHT to be in these non-public schools and this is their TRUE opportunity to “get out”. If Republicans want to show that they are TRULY | Read More »
Reviewing the October fundraising numbers.
As promised. Short version: DNC beat RNC, NRSC edged DSCC, DCCC edged NRCC, and cash on hand would worry me more if the GOP hadn’t just removed the NJ & VA governorships from the Democrats and essentially handed NY-23 as part of a unfortunate but necessary life lesson to the GOP leadership. RNC 9.06 11.29 0.00 DNC 11.58 12.96 4.40 NRSC 4.00 5.80 0.00 DSCC | Read More »
Inside ACORN’S Political Plans: Ensuring a Democrat Majority
According to a report from Ohio today, a member of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee has asked the ACORN-tainted Ohio Secretary of State, Jennifer Brunner, to investigation ACORN’s voter registration work in the state. “U.S. Rep. Jim Jordan has formally asked Ohio’s secretary of state to look into allegations that ACORN had at least a preliminary plan to back Democrat candidates in key | Read More »

Round one…..WE are on the ropes…..KNOCKOUT is coming to the Democrats!
I went down to DC because I was called to action by Congressman King Real American Hero because he needed me and ALL of us to help SAVE our country from the horror that is government run healthcare. It is not lightly that I FIGHT my elected officials as a matter of fact other then the ballot box I had never been moved to actively | Read More »
Sunlight Foundation in the Dark
The Sunlight Foundation’s Luke Rosiak reported on Friday the Republican National Committee spent $1.4 million on the redesign of GOP.com, a figure which totals more than five times what the RNC’s Democratic counterpart spent to host and maintain Democrats.org. Sources familiar with the RNC’s digital makeover, however, contest Sunlight’s report, calling it “ridiculous.” Rosiak writes: The biggest disparity seems to be bandwidth costs–the RNC paid | Read More »
BUSTING the HYPOCRITES: Obama, Mama Mao, the DNC and Their Union-Busting Law Firm
Were there not have been so much attention paid to the White House Communications Director, media controller, and Maoist Anita Dunn’s worshipful comments on mass murderer (and Communist dictator) Mao Zedong, we might not have discovered this story of hidden hypocrisy and seeming conflict of interest. It seems, however, that as we looked into the Maoist media controller more, the more the hypocrisy surfaced that puts Ms. Dunn, her husband and the | Read More »
OfA, DNC ‘Call Out’ Steele in New Web Video
Organizing for America, the increasingly combative political operation of the White House, today unveiled a new web video targeting Republican National Committee (RNC) Chairman Michael Steele, charging the Republican Party chief with “siding with Washington elites and insurance companies and playing political games to kill reform.” The latest installment in OfA’s “call ‘em out” campaign—a call to arms of sorts for complacent allies of President | Read More »
Reviewing the September fundraising numbers.
It’s that time again. Short version: RNC beat DNC, but DSCC & DCCC significantly outraised their counterparts – sufficiently so that the Democrats raised more overall for the month. When debt is factored in, the Democrats also went from being significantly behind on cash-on-hand to being slightly ahead. That being said: the RNC and NRCC are both reporting significant increases in small-person donors. Raised CoH | Read More »
White House pulls DNC ad to mollify… Bob Dole.
How worried is the White House that it doesn’t have any Republican support for its health care rationing bill? WASHINGTON (Oct 11) – The Democratic National Committee is canceling a television ad touting GOP support for health care reform after protests from one of the Republicans mentioned, former Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole. [snip] Dole told ABC News on Sunday that he objected to the | Read More »
Defining “Republican Party” to include prominent Lefties, of course.
Wow, this is off-message. The DNC: “The Republican Party has thrown in its lot with the terrorists – the Taliban and Hamas this morning – in criticizing the President for receiving the Nobel Peace prize,” DNC communications director Brad Woodhouse told POLITICO. Meet some terrorist lot thrower-inners. Glenn Greenwald: there are simply no meaningful “peace” accomplishment in his record — at least not yet — | Read More »
The Politics of PACs
Minnesota Governor Tim Pawlenty, whose decision not to seek a third term as governor sparked immense speculation among Republicans about a 2012 campaign, announced today he will launch the “Freedom First” PAC in early November, granting him the opportunity to curry favor among the party faithful by raising and transferring sums of money to state and federal Republican candidates. After launching a website last week describing Pawlenty | Read More »
Reviewing the August Fundraising numbers.
Wouldn’t you know it: I decide not to do anything consequential and the fundraising numbers become available. Short version: the GOP out-raised the Democrats for the first time since April; the NRSC beat out the DSCC for the second month; the NRCC continues to stay essentially tied with the DCCC; and the Democrats aren’t paying their debt down. Raised CoH Debts RNC 7.87 20.97 0.00 | Read More »
Lamar! Czar! …and that joke will get old fast.
Suffice it to say that Senator Alexander (R, TN) is amused at the DNC’s decision to play Teh GREAT Internetz Defenderz!!!11!1ONE!1!!!!11!: (Via @nicklaus) Hard not to be amused: it’s not every day that you see a major party organization threaten to unleash a “rain of hellfire” on health care rationing opponents. Or, as we here in Reality Non-Unicorn like to call them, “56% of the | Read More »
The DNC goes after a peculiar demographic: Bush voters.
I hope that they spent money on this: Look, I think that George W. Bush’s current unpopularity among the American people is a bit unfair, but I recognize that it exists – so trying to excuse the current President’s habit of doing end-runs around the nomination process because he’s just like Bush* is, well, dumb. The majority of the populace will react badly to the | Read More »
