Former Gov. Brian Schweitzer (D, MT) wants us to ‘cozy up’ to Iran.
His words, not mine. That first link is to the video: text below. “What’s interesting is not that we are going to have a treaty with Iran, it’s going to tip the balance away from the Saudis and the Egyptians to the Persians, the enemies for the last 3,000 years to the Arabs,” he said, pointing out that he had lived in the Middle East | Read More »
I… do not care if the Iowa GOP is unhappy that it may lose influence in the 2016 election.
You should have seen what I wrote originally. Swear words were involved. Anyway, Iowa’s worried that it may not have the influence that it once had over the Republican primaries: On the surface, Iowa’s Republican presidential caucuses seem healthier than ever: would-be candidates are flocking here mere months after the last White House race ended, drawing sizable crowds and ample news coverage. Senator Ted Cruz | Read More »
Birfer = Retard.
Occasionally the Left is so pathetic in their hypocritical blindness that they simply step into my wheelhouse and all but yell out “Skeet” as they fly down range. I didn’t even have to yell “Haul.” Don’t blink. Otherwise the newest stupid could whack you right between the eyes. According to The Dallas Morning News, Ted Cruz is one of them. Here’s how freakin’ scary it could get.
That means he could assert the right to vote in Canada or even run for Parliament. On a lunch break from the U.S. Senate, he could head to the nearby embassy — the one flying a bright red maple leaf flag — pull out his Calgary, Alberta, birth certificate and obtain a passport.
You see the Cruz was born in Canada to an American Mother and a Canadian Dad. This automatically gives Senator Cruz two legal options for citizenship. He could personally choose to be American or Canadian. And you won’t even need a birth certificate generator to prove it! Actually, Cruz released it.

No, the 2016 election cycle has *not* started…
…at least on the Republican side. It has on the Democratic side, because the Democrats already know their (and I use the term loosely) talent pool: it’s Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Martin O’Malley, Andrew Cuomo, and that’s it*. No, seriously, that’s it: nobody in the Senate or about to be in the Senate is going to be the Democratic nominee in 2016. Even the Democratic | Read More »
Dirk Diggler For President
A few months ago, I was reading RS.com and just had to unplug and take a nice walk in the woods. It was that or the barf bag. It seems we were endorsing a somewhat defective Congressional Candidate from South Carolina. A man who generally had Conservative views when he did his thinking with the head attached to his neck. That, of course, was the Infamous Mark Sanford. We were promised up and down that he had figured out the tricky difference between Appalachian Trail and Argentinean Tail. Yep, he’s back in the saddle and it’s time to assess how that’s been working out for us. With Mark all elected, every opportunistic Dem was crowing about the hypocrisy of the “Family Values Party.”

Mitt Romney: don’t waste your time. Just give *me* $50 million to work with.
Come, I will conceal nothing from you. I only read this: Romney Planning to Rejoin National Dialogue Months After Election Loss, He Will Host Event in Utah for 200 Friends and Campaign Supporters …the rest is behind a paywall. Still: you want to rejoin the National Dialogue, Mr. Romney? This is how you do it: you give me fifty million dollars and then you tell | Read More »
Obama’s scandal atmosphere and 2014 Democratic recruitment efforts.
I’m not sure that Stu Rothenberg is correct, here: …it isn’t clear how much of an impact, if any, the controversies will have on the 2014 midterms. Even if (when) those controversies fade, however, there could be short-term consequences for both the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in the area of recruitment. Largely because it doesn’t look like either organization | Read More »
SC-01 Special Election Results Thread; UPDATE: Sanford Wins
UPDATE: As we all thought, I’m sure, the district has been called for Mark Sanford. Congratulations, governor! [UPDATE- Moe Lane] Now that the election is over, it is of course necessary to commemorate the way that the DCCC and Democrats have spent their resources here – to the best benefit of the Republican party. Two million all told, was it? Well, I guess that kind | Read More »
Leftist Groups Legislate Same Day Voter Registration, Election Integrity Hardest Hit
A bill just introduced in the Colorado legislature would allow voter registration through Election Day, beginning July 1 of this year. The legislation, which was drafted by Common Cause, the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), America Votes, and various other left-wing organizations, contains provisions similar to fraud-plagued election policies in the state of Wisconsin. According to emails obtained by Media Trackers | Read More »
Google and Democrats deny that Google is helping Democrats
A couple weeks ago, I warned conservatives about Google’s entanglement with the Left, and the possibility that Google could provide data intelligence to Democrats. Not the usual consumer data that everybody uses, but a level of real-time behavioral data far beyond what Republicans could ever achieve using available consumer data. That concern was dismissed as a conspiracy theory by some people. The question isn’t whether | Read More »
Colorado Springs Considers Major Reform Proposals To Mitigate Conflicts Of Interest In Utilities Management
The Colorado Springs, Colorado City Council will consider three new ordinances today which concern the establishment of an independently elected utilities board, an independently elected City Attorney, and the removal of utilities contract authority from the Mayor. The ballot proposals, which are expected to receive a vote today, are a response to the debate over the Martin Drake power plant which provides 254 megawatts of | Read More »

Our Task Going Forward
With much drama and suspense, John Boehner was reelected as Speaker of the House today by the slimmest of margins. The entire focus of the vote was centered on the brewing conservative rebellion. Ultimately, only 12 Republicans either declined to vote or voted for someone other than Boehner (Garrett, Bachmann, and Blackburn initially declined to vote, but voted for Boehner upon the second call), just | Read More »
My quick handicapping of Democratic at-risk Senate races in 2014.
Since Glenn Reynolds asked, here’s my current assessment of at-risk Democratic Senators in 2014*. Bear in mind: while I generally got the House right in 2010 and 2012, I overestimated our Senate performance by a couple of seats in both years and of course got the 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections wrong. So, you know, grain of salt and all of that. Alaska Mark Begich | Read More »
We Need a Choice, Not and Echo
Some things just never change. Back in 1976, President Ford ran for president against Jimmy Carter on a pale-pastel platform that was indistinguishable from the Democrats. In fact, based upon the demographics of the electoral map, many conservatives voted for Jimmy Carter. During the wilderness years of the Ford administration, Reagan issued an ominous warning about the direction of the party. “Our people look for | Read More »
What Arizona Teaches Us About Politics of Illegal Immigration
If you only listened to the media and Republican consultants during the days following the election, you would hear the following erroneous premises about the Hispanic vote and the issue of illegal immigration. 1) Our opposition to the circuitous cycle of amnesty and open borders is the sole reason why we are losing the Hispanic vote. 2) Immediate and unconditional support for illegal immigrants will | Read More »
