The Tea Party in Canton, NY
Any day you can drive through Northern New York with the windows down is a good day. And, considering I was about to stand on a line holding a sign for two and a half hours, this bode very well indeed. The light breeze and clear, blue sky was all the encouragement I needed that this was a darn fine day for dissent. As I | Read More »
Dems just now getting around to asking those pesky questions they should have asked months ago
(from a post at St. Lawrence Co. Republitarian) New York Senator Kirsten Gillibrand was in Cortland, New York Tuesday, speaking with local business leaders about how to best stimulate local economy. Basically, the idea was to seek grant proposals for money that is already earmarked for the State. The gist: we have x amount of dollars, now let’s decide how to spend it. Now, let’s forget, for the | Read More »
Carolyn McCarthy (D, NY-04): PMA Porker.
I mention this not so much because she’s unique – she isn’t, especially among Democrats – but because she has her eye on higher office these days. Rep. Carolyn McCarthy (D-NY) has made it clear that she may launch a primary challenge against Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), whom McCarthy deems too conservative to represent one of the most liberal states in the country. But McCarthy | Read More »
Depressing Q-Poll about NY Gov Paterson.
Worst possible news, in fact: April 6, 2009 – Voters Say 3-1 Paterson Does Not Deserve Election, Quinnipiac University Poll Finds; Most Say He Should Announce Now He Won’t Run New York State voters disapprove 60 – 28 percent of the job Gov. David Paterson is doing, the lowest approval ever for a New York Governor, and say 63 – 22 percent that he does | Read More »
Reuters Knowingly Reports Lie About Binghamton Shooting — The Taliban Did It
Reuters published a story today, April 4, detailing some nonsense from a Taliban terrorist who has claimed “responsibility” for Friday’s shooting rampage in Binghamtom, New York. The question that comes to mind is why? Why did Reuters imagine this idiotic claim, this obvious lie, was worth reporting to the world? Does Reuters not have the good sense God gave a door knob? Why would Reuters | Read More »
Liberals Laugh at Tax Flight Threat
New York state – under the leadership of Governor David Paterson – is getting ready to dramatically raise taxes on those earning greater than $250K. And faced with the threat that people earning this kind of money might move themselves or their businesses to lower-tax jurisdictions, liberals seem completely unconcerned. Indeed – if you take Rush Limbaugh as symbolic of the rest of these high-earners, | Read More »
NY-20: Don’t forget the military. The state board of election did
It looks like Jim Tedisco may have pulled off the victory in NY-20 after all. And there is good reason to think that the remaining absentee ballots should favor Tedisco. That said, there was a serious problem. The state Board of Elections seesm to have deliberately disinfranchised military voters. Heritage’s Hans von Spakovsky describes how the Democrats on the Board of Election actually voted to | Read More »
Appeals to the grassroots: NY-20, IL-05.
NY-20: The recount for this race – which is actually at plus 25 right now, not plus 57 – is going to be expensive. There’s a new pledge drive up to pay for that recount, in the same style as the one that gathered over 120K for Jim Tedisco: I encourage people to help out there, or where they can. It’s already at 9K (the | Read More »
Recap of the NY-20 race.
Scott Murphy (D) is ahead by 65 votes. Nobody’s calling this race just yet. There are somewhere between six and ten thousand absentee ballots that need to be counted. They’re not being counted tonight. They’re not being counted for another week. (Via AoSHQ) You see, we do, in fact, actually learn from our mistakes. The deadline for overseas absentee ballots is actually April 13th. All | Read More »
Exporting/Expanding BLUE-ism… shaping elections to come.
Exporting/expanding BLUE-ism (Liberal, Progressive, Socialist, politics)…. Shaping the Electoral Maps of the future…. All of this aside from the growth of illegal activities (read: ACORN, Liberal Judges in ultra-Liberal Districts ordering Polls to remain open late [Early- (and the new Late-) Voting trends], and other [Voting Psychology (Bandwagon and other effects) coupled with MSM bias attempts to mold/shape turnout] hi-jinks) to pad Democrat vote totals… | Read More »

The NY-20 special election is tomorrow.
And it will be close. I’m thinking that it’s a squeaker for Tedisco, unless of course this particular ad: …clarifies matters for NY-20. Also: it’d be nice if Tedisco broke 120K online, huh? contribute: Crossposted to Moe Lane.
New York to tax top earners.
To sum up the New York Times article: New York Democrats in the Assembly have come to an agreement with New York Democrats in the Senate and the New York Democrat in the Governor’s office to raise state taxes on all incomes above $300,000/year. This is felt to be the best way to handle the looming 3.2 billion deficit in taxes from the previous projected | Read More »
NY-20 update: an endorsement and a removal.
The New York Post has announced for Tedisco, citing his experience over Scott Murphy, Tedisco’s better ideological fit to this district, Tedisco’s record of fiscal restraint, and – interestingly – Murphy’s refusal to support the death penalty for even 9/11 terrorists. And in other news, the Libertarian candidate has been disqualified for the second election cycle running from being on the ballot. Problems with the | Read More »
Cuomo Won’t Challenge NY Governor Paterson
I would have bet the house against this: New York State Attorney General Andrew Cuomo said despite recent polls showing him far ahead of Governor David Paterson in a gubernatorial primary, he wants to stay on as the state’s chief legal officer. “I hope the people think that I’ve been delivering for them as attorney general,” he said Tuesday night at Schenectady County Community College. | Read More »
