Alaska’s conservative young gun reloads in Indiana
It’s been tough in Alaska for Gov. Sarah Palin the past few days. She’s been embroiled in a tug of war with the legislature over a replacement to fill the unexpired term of a state Senator who resigned to go to work for the Obama administration. The lawmakers appear certain to restore millions of dollars of the federal porkulus funds she had turned down, and | Read More »

Being a fan of Mike Pence, and also a fan of the TeaParty Protests, I wondered if Pence was supporting/attending one.

Obama’s Organizing for America targets… Evan Bayh.
Fresh from their general campaign last Saturday of utterly failing to convincing Congress to do anything, Organizing for America is now engaged in regional spamming of their email lists to go after of individual legislators considered either hostile or insufficiently favorable to the President’s plan to saddle the next three generations with even more crushing, unnecessary debt. This is primarily targeting Republicans: in fact, based | Read More »
Mike Pence at CPAC
One of the best decisions made this year by House Republicans was putting Mike Pence in charge of the House Republican Conference. Yesterday at CPAC, he proved it. Pence was dynamic, powerful, focused, and absolutely willing to call out other Republicans who totally failed the party and the conservative movement. His theme, from stage, was set early: How we, as conservatives, respond to these challenges | Read More »

Senator Bayh Supports Federal Help For Auto Industry
Senator Evan Bayh (D-Indiana) came out today in support of federal help to save the domestic auto industry. He thinks that action is preferable to inaction. That directly contradicts my own feelings about federal government which can easily be summed up as: Government works best when it works least. There is not widespread support for bailing out the auto industry in Washington and the fact | Read More »
Mitch Daniels Supports Stimulus For States
Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels was one of the 40 some governors that recently met with President-elect Obama.

He won a special election earlier this year and won again in November. He seems to have a safe seat. District 7 seems designed to contain as few Republicans as possible within the Indianapolis metro area. It contains most of Indianapolis. But the wealthier, | Read More »
How Indiana turned Blue for Obama
When I moved to Indiana this summer, I knew I was moving to a deep Red State, a state where Bush stomped Kerry by 20 points in the 2004 presidential election, winning all but 4 counties. In fact, since 1940, when the Republicans nominated the Hoosier Wendle Wilkie for president, Indiana had only voted for a Democrat presidential candidate once, in 1964, until last week. | Read More »
