BREAKING: RNC backs out of February NBC-National Review debate.
Well, half-and-half. The GOP will still be working with National Review: but NBC is taking the brunt of CNBC’s Dumpster Fire Debate. From the official letter: The CNBC network is one of your media properties, and its handling of the debate was conducted in bad faith. We understand that NBC does not exercise full editorial control over CNBC’s journalistic approach. However, the network is an arm | Read More »
The mystery of Scott Walker cratering is no mystery
From his perch as early front runner, Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s campaign for president is now sucking swamp water. The most recent RCP average shows him with about 5.8% of the vote, oddly enough this exactly one persons’s share of a vote distributed over 17 candidates. Yesterday, Molly Ball of the Atlantic did a profile of Walker and his campaign, Can Scott Walker Save Himself? To | Read More »
Dear @GOP, Please Do Not Sanction a Univision Debate [UPDATED]
UPDATE: The RNC has assured me that Univision will not have a debate. Univision wants to have a forum of the Republican candidates. For the reasons below, I would ask that the Republican National Committee refuse to sanction that forum under the candidate debate rules. First, Univision missed the boat. They never submitted a proposal to host a debate like all the other networks. That’s | Read More »
You’re Missing the Story on George Stephanopoulos
Former Clinton employee George Stephanopoulos, who plays an objective reporter for ABC News on television, gave $75,000.00 to the Clinton Foundation. Shocker. No, not really. George Stephanopoulos has now decided to forego moderating a Republican Presidential debate. Shocker. No, not really. The real story in my mind is that the Republican Party ever thought George Stephanopoulos should moderate a Republican Presidential debate to begin with. | Read More »
The Question on Dave Agema is Not Difficult
Dave Agema is an RNC Committeeman from Michigan. The Republican National Committee will consider expelling him at its upcoming meeting. There are a lot of people who want to portray this as a complicated issue, but it is not. Agema should be removed. Agema has linked to, cited, and otherwise put forward a lot of information on the gay rights agenda and on gays. At | Read More »
An Open Letter to RNC Chairman Reince Priebus
Dear Chairman Priebus, I realize that you probably will never see this. I realize that, by and large, you don’t take your cues from sites like this one – though you (and we, and the party, and the country) would probably be a lot better off if you did. If, however, you do somehow come across this letter, I hope you will take what follows | Read More »
RNC convention pick bearing fruit: LeBron James to return to Cleveland.
Hey, if the President can take credit for Osama bin Laden, then Reince Priebus and the RNC can take credit for bringing LeBron back to Cleveland. I don’t make the rules, after all. I just use them to be a royal pain in the sit-upon. Four years after he bolted from Cleveland to Miami in pursuit of the N.B.A. championships that had eluded him, LeBron | Read More »

RNC, Please Don’t
Peruse any of the various stories about the Republican National Committee considering Las Vegas for the 2016 convention and the stories will read as if the GOP is going open handed to its sugar daddy, Sheldon Adelson. Already, Republicans across the nation are tripping over themselves in the rush to bask in Mr. Adelson’s presence and pledge their undying loyalty to him. Many of these | Read More »
A Humorous Look at CPAC From a “Moderate” Republican Viewpoint
Author’s note: This piece is a re-post from BizPac Review. Code Red (State) Alert: It is highly recommended that all liberal Democrats, Independents and even some moderate Republicans (if there are any left) power down their media devices the weekend of March 6 – 8. Choosing to ignore this warning means you will be inundated with news flashes of anti-Obama speeches from hordes of conservative | Read More »

Dear @Reince and @RNC: Put your money where your tweets are.
I realize this would appear to be the second letter to the party today, especially after Breeanne Howe’s “Dear John” to the party as a whole. But, I would simply like to ask something of the chairman of the RNC and the RNC itself: Turn your words into deeds. Chairman of the Republican National Committee, Reince Priebus, has not one but two posts on RedState | Read More »
RNC apparently making fundraising calls on 9/11
Cross-posted from The Quinton Report. I had just been having a discussion with a friend today about politics on 9/11 in light of a campaign press release I saw today that wasn’t 9/11 related when my phone rang. I didn’t answer it but the Caller ID indicated it was the Republican National Committee with a 202-747-7372 number. This number calls constantly and I never answer | Read More »
RNC formally resolves to make CNN/NBC choose between Hillary Clinton & primary debate access.
Whatever cuts down the number of debates, frankly. The Republican National Committee unanimously passed a resolution here Friday to not partner with NBC or CNN on 2016 primary debates if they air Hillary Clinton projects. RNC Chairman Reince Priebus got an extended standing ovation from cheering state chairmen during the party’s summer meeting for spearheading the push. “We’re done putting up with this nonsense,” he | Read More »
Kudos to Reince Priebus, RNC
I’m usually the first to gripe about Establishment Republicans and squishes, so let me be the first out of the box to salute today’s RNC decision to nix NBC and CNN as national debate hosts due to their Hillary Clinton pimping. I am incredibly proud to have Reince Priebus as chair of the RNC today. For too long, hostile venues, biased moderators, and blatantly partisan | Read More »
