Remembering: Harry’s History
Gives me warm and fuzzies Of course, the title of this post can be taken two ways, and right now I’m looking at both of them. I never got over Reid with his comment “…the war is lost…” back in 2007; “Now I believe, myself, that the secretary of state, the secretary of defense and you have to make your own decision as to what | Read More »
I still believe Harry Reid will retire
I firmly believe Harry Reid will not seek re-election, but will retire. This makes me more convinced. New Rasmussen Reports numbers out today show the Democrat’s support has plunged 7 points since last month, a time frame involving his demeaning remarks on his president’s skin color and manner of speaking. That puts Reid right at 36% approval now, less than 10 months before Nov. 2 | Read More »
Sen. Reid to GOP: I need some time off to raise money.
He had a fundraiser in New Orleans that he rather badly needed to do, and never mind the rhetoric on how important it is to pass health care rationing. The GOP mocked him, as was only fitting. The GOP is, in fact, using it as local campaign fodder; and so Senator Reid doesn’t get to go to New Orleans. He’s quite upset about it, too*: | Read More »
Republican Leadership Had Better – Or Else!
Senator John Kyle told a reporter this, when asked what they were doing about the health care debacle. “We are offering amendments to make it a better bill.” WHAT?!! This is what we are getting for leadership out of our Senators? They haven’t figured out, after all the fuss, that the American people don’t want any part of this bill? Do we have to dump | Read More »
Affairs of Double Standards
Who am I? I’m a moderate to conservative US Senator from a traditionally red state. I voted for the Bush tax cuts. I have won reelection to my Senate seat by over 10% each time. I oppose single-payer healthcare. I also had an affair with a campaign aide. Who am I? Many would immediately jump to John Ensign. The problem is that this very same | Read More »

ACLU: Election fraud is a civil right.
…that someone surveying the situation might be forgiven in thinking that it’s implicitly permitted: but no, we don’t actually want election fraud to happen. When it does – like it did in Pennsylvania – and we can catch them at it, we put the people who did it on trial. And then, apparently, we have the ACLU wander in and pick the wrong side to | Read More »
Even post-adultery, Ensign still more popular than Reid.
Admittedly, Ensign’s taken one heck of a drop, but he’s still at least more liked than disliked. Favorable / Unfavorable Sen. Ensign (R): 39 / 37 (May 12-14: 53 / 18) Sen. Reid (D): 34 / 46 Job Approval/Disapproval Reid: 43 / 55 Ensign: 48 / 45 Jim Geraghty thinks that Reid should try having an affair; I will not be cruel and write the | Read More »
