The Georgia Senatorial Runoff Results Open Thread
UPDATE, 9:00 PM: With 68% of the vote in, it’s 61/39 Chambliss/Martin, and I’m going to go back to watching Hellboy 2. But the big question is: did Obama know that he wasn’t going to be able to pull this one off for the Democrats, or did he just not particularly care? Either answer would be interesting for his Party, in the Chinese proverb sense. | Read More »

Majority Strategies/NextWave Communications: Time to Pack It In
This post has been updated. Please go here for the update and correction. ————————– Sigh. I hate writing these posts. But it is necessary. Patrick Ruffini and I have both written about the need to purge the party of the “you scratch my back, I’ll scratch your back” consultant regime that gets us into so many problems. Truth be told, I wrote this post on | Read More »
Palin – Chambliss rally – Duluth, GA
Promoted from the diaries by Erick I went to the rally the vote event for Saxby Chambliss this afternoon. And, again Sarah Palin showed, as she has in every venue before this one, what charisma and star power are. It may have not been a record but the thousands of people – young women, at least 3 or 4 beauty queens with their tiaras and | Read More »
Some of Gov. Palin’s Georgia speech.
(The CNN video doesn’t work here. Go to the Hot Air link.) Via Hot Air, which also links to a 53/46 Chambliss/Martin split. And she’s certainly still able to draw a crowd, yesno?
Georgia remains as red as the clay for Chambliss
Fifty-eight and counting for the Democratic Party in the United States Senate, and should incumbent Republican Saxby Chambliss lose to Jim Martin on this Tuesday’s run-off election, only one Republican vote would be required to invoke cloture to end filibusters. A President Barack Obama and the Democrats in Congress would have a blank check to enact most all of their legislative dreams of the past | Read More »

Bush world barbarians at Obama’s Gates
Originally published by Mike gamecock DeVine as Legal Editor for The Minority Report Barack Obama was the one, who was waiting for? Was it us, or Al Qaeda in India; Russian missiles near Poland and warships in Venezuela, respectively; and Iran near the bomb? Suddenly, post-Olympics, post-Election Day and especially post-intelligence briefing, President George W. Bush’s post-911 record doesn’t look so bad. Why else would | Read More »

The Palin Trip to Georgia
I was going to post-jack Josh’s post, but instead I’ll go all ego and put up my own post here. Governor Palin will be in Georgia on Monday. In fact, she’ll be 30 minutes from my house at 1:30 p.m. So anyway, I’ve decided to buy my wife a shotgun for Christmas. I could use Governor Palin’s advice on this as I’ve never bought a | Read More »
Sarah! and Saxby
I had heard from someone on Saxby’s staff last week that the campaign was working on getting Governor Sarah Palin down to Georgia to help get voters fired up over the run-off. Well, according to the Telegraph, Sarah! has agreed to come to the rescue. The closest she’ll get to Macon is Perry – chosen, I suppose, so that the Ag Center can be used | Read More »

Why is Faiz Shakir, a Research Director for Center for American Progress, Lying to Get Information?
This is Faiz Shakir. He is a research director at the Center for American Progress and editor of Think Progress.

And Faiz Shakir is one of their hit men — running Think Progress to help set a media narrative in favor of | Read More »
Jim Martin’s Fundraiser
For those of you who think we should just let the Democrats have sixty seats and let them run the place, this is an important story. It’s an important story about how much damage the Democrats could do and how some groups, besides unions, are desperately seeking sixty Democrat senators. Down in Georgia, the Stonewall Democrats are throwing a fundraiser for Jim Martin. The Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Transgendered | Read More »
