Cook’s DOOMList: 10/28/2010 edition.

    This may be the penultimate DOOMList from Cook with regard to the House: it’s the Friday before the election and there’s just not much time left for tracking the ongoing Democratic party’s synchronized mass career implosion.  Which is not to say that more extinction events won’t occur, but there’s a limit to how fast Cook can write them down.

    New York Times: DOOM.

    The actual title isn’t that, of course.  The actual title is “Democrats Counting on Strength of Obama’s Get-Out-the-Vote Network“… which is merely semantically equivalent to the word/phrase/meme “DOOM.”  If you’re “counting on” getting enough voters out there to erase your own, admitted failure to be the perceived front-runner, then you’ve already lost and you’re just trying to avoid a rout*.  Thus it was for the | Read More »

    Democrat election workers currently cheating the vote: you’ll love federal prison

    You may already know this: there will be a reckoning. Actually there will be three. This is primarily about the third one. The first reckoning – America’s second Declaration of Independence The first reckoning will be on election day, November 2, 2010, when Americans vote overwhelmingly to reject the Democrat agenda. It will be a down payment on the epic 10-year butt-kicking that will be | Read More »

    Four out of five signs of DOOM.

    Benjamin Sarlin has compiled a list of… well, five signs of DOOM: by his and my count we’ve hit four of them.  The fifth (We Totally Meant To Lose Anyway) will probably hit in force after the next time Cook and/or Rothenberg update their list of Democrats whose staffers need to update their resumes and/or start shredding the paperwork in anticipation of Darrell Issa’s 2011 | Read More »

    Democratic Death Panel Watch: The Line of Credit.

    Reportedly, the DCCC has acquired a $17 million dollar line of credit for the November elections.  Leaving aside the hilarity of the committee suddenly feeling the need to put in for emergency funds – remember when they were going to crush us with their existing money?  How is that going, anyway – here’s a thought to cheer up people’s weekends: if they have the money, | Read More »

    Pew Research reveals THE NUMBER OF THE BEAST.

    If I didn’t know better, I’d think that Pew was just having its little joke by making sure that its latest report on the midterms had a URL of http://people-press.org/report/666/.  If it did, then Pew would be well on its way to winning the contest of being The Coolest Research Center EVER – but it’s much more likely that this was just an accident.  A | Read More »

    Chris Matthews brings DOOM unto Jack Conway.

    Yes. That Chris Matthews. Matthews apparently did not personally approve of the way that Jack Conway smeared Rand Paul with a recent scurrilous ad, and so took the opportunity to smack Conway around for over seven minutes of pretty much relentless, aggressive interviewing. Yes, again: that Chris Matthews.  As I remarked just now on Twitter, watching this was like watching Jack Conway get mauled by | Read More »

    The Condescender-in-Chief

    Two years into the Obama presidency, and this kind of thing really shouldn’t be a surprise. Obama told the several dozen donors that he was offering them his “view from the Oval Office.” He faulted the economic downturn for Americans’ inability to “think clearly” and said the burden is on Democrats “to break through the fear and the frustration people are feeling.” The President believes | Read More »

    Do you have any Grade A Congress Critters?

    Out here in west Texas I have one Grade A US Senator, (Cornyn), and one Grade A US Rep.,(Conaway). It is natural when one elects to get something they need that they look to see if it is Grade A. The same principle should be in play when one elects a CongressCritter™. Liberty Central has made it much easier and convenient to see the grades | Read More »
