Eric Hovde’s Fuzzy Memory Regarding His Donation to Doyle
There is a sad reality we must confront. We have less than 10 reliable conservatives in the Senate. If we ever hope to improve our fortunes in the “House of Lords,” we cannot become complacent and squander even a single opportunity to grow our numbers. We’ve enjoyed successes in Texas and Indiana this year, as well as Nebraska (to a certain extent). The next battle | Read More »

The call for Mickey Mouse as a write-in in the CA-DEM Primary!
Slightly contra Instapundit, this call for Mickey Mouse as a write-in on the California ballot is a blogger’s joke rather than an actual movement [UPDATE: I am informed in comments here that this is meant absolutely seriously; please be assured that I had no intention of mocking either the sentiment or the activity], but if it’s kidding then it’s kidding on the square. And it’s | Read More »
I Blame Us All. Don’t Worry: You Will Too.
From the diaries . . . So, as we begin our gallant charge into electoral defeat in November in earnest, I think it’s time to lay the blame for this primary season where it belongs: The voters. We’ve all spent a good bit of time deriding and decrying the Establishment for our current straits, and I truly believe they deserve some criticism. National Review backhanded | Read More »
Femi-regulars for Rick Santorum
From the diaries Left-leaning elitist pundits are scratching their heads. After two weeks of liberals trying to convince women that Rick Santorum wants to rip the birth control out of their hands and put them in the kitchen, more and more women are supporting Rick Santorum. “How could this be?” they ask. Answer: We are smarter than you think. Let me offer a little primer | Read More »
Obama’s failed promises: Nevada edition
The good folks at the RNC took a look at what candidate Obama promised in Nevada during the 2008 presidential campaign … and the record of failure that followed. The result reveals President Obama’s failure to live up to candidate Obama’s promises. In a new video the RNC reminds us of how Obama’s failed promises impact Nevada. Nevada has the highest unemployment rate in the country | Read More »

Thoughts on the SC primary.
As mentioned earlier, I was kind of taking last night off, so this will be a little scatter-shot. Anyway: Heh. Called it. Not that getting the order was all that hard, or even unsurprising; also note that I didn’t predict the percentages. By the way: the end results (Gingrich 40%, Romney 28%, Santorum 17%, Paul 13%) were pretty close to what PPP predicted (Gingrich 37%, | Read More »
Court explains reasoning on VA absentee ballot court order.
OK, let me try to explain just what is going on in this court order involving the VA GOP primary ballot. For those who came in late: back in December, Virginia’s primary registration system ended up producing a result where only two Republican candidates (Mitt Romney and Ron Paul) qualified for the ballot. This resulted in some frankly unkind things said about virtually everyone involved | Read More »
GOP candidates! Boycott the Nevada debate*!
It’s been reported that Jon Huntsman has decided to boycott the Nevada CNN debate next Tuesday as part of a larger pushback against Nevada’s moving up its caucus date. I applaud this act of principle, and encourage all other Republican candidates** to follow suit immediately. In fact… this problematical situation vis a vis the creeping primary dates have gotten so out of hand that the | Read More »
We need real, useful primary polling
So Fox News put out a new poll of the race for the Republican Presidential nomination. It’s a typical poll in many ways, but Fox’s bit of analysis got me to thinking: Polls like this favor frontrunners and likely skew the race.
