Well, before we start all the recriminations and the strategerizing, or even the post-mortems, lets just look at what we’re left with; what do we hold from which to plan a return? The picture here this morning looks surprisingly like the picture in the aftermath of the 1992 election. Senator Obama appears to have won the popular vote by about five points – it will | Read More »
It’s “Put On The Helmet Day” Mom
Red States, Rush, I hope you’re listening. There is one thing and one thing only we need to do right now, and for the foreseeable future. It is time for the Operation Chaos Reunion Tour. Remember, according to the polls, there are at least 48 million of us out there. Now what is the best way to create this chaos? Firstly, today is the day | Read More »
Sarah Palin Should Join the US Senate
One of the bright spots–or potential bright spots–of this election is the political emergence of Sarah Palin. This happens at a time when Republicans are sorely in need of fresh perspectives and candidates who can bridge the enthusiasm gap with Democrats. I like her quite a lot, but I am also among those who want to see her learn more, prove herself more, and learn | Read More »
Update on the Senate Races
It looks like Norm Colemas has beaten Al Franken. The Alaska and Oregon races are in doubt. UPDATE: Stevens and Young won. Wow. In Georgia, the networks pulled back their cal on Saxby Chambliss. He is now below 50%, meaning he may go into a runoff. There are tens of thousands of outstanding ballots and some delays in Democrat territory with a habit of vote | Read More »
The Leadership Struggle Ahead
We now move to the leadership struggle for the House and Senate Republicans. We have no preferences in these races yet. But we have a question that Messrs. McConnell, Boehner, and Blunt must answer: How are you qualified to lead after two consecutive elections of significant losses? There are others who are just as qualified to lead, some might argue more qualified to lead. in | Read More »
Sarah Palin to US Senate?
The race has not finished as I write for AK, but it looks good that AK will be “attempting” to return Ted Stevens to the US Senate. Very simple Question: Should Sarah Palin be Ted Stevens replacement? Or, do you wish to defend Stevens and his Legal Appeal(s)? Not much to be said here, just an opportunity to turn it over to all of us | Read More »
Where do we go from here?
Two must read posts tonight, Neil Stevens’ points and Dan McLaughlin’s h/t to Rove — It begins with the base. Now for a point of my own. We must stand strong as conservatives and libertarians and not give up. In doing so, we must buck up our remaining GOP Senators. The pressure they will be under to capitulate and not filibuster, to go along to | Read More »
, President Obama
, The Future
The Way Forward
that’s all. But I was told today by a somewhat gloating self-denying lefty that I “had a new boss”. In my view my boss never changes and so I told him “Obama’s not my boss, he’s just the next President”. The Constitution is my boss and the President is the person who I hope will exercise good judgment in the use of my brothers and | Read More »
“Just One Judge” Could Separate Us From a Pro-Life Future or a Continuing Holocaust
Why Just One Judge? Because the nine Justices on the Supreme Court only get there when the officials YOU elect appoint and confirm them The next President and U.S. Senate will appoint and confirm the one Justice who will be the deciding vote on whether to overturn Roe v. Wade… to restore the Constitutional guarantee of Life, or to allow the killing of innocent unborn | Read More »
Silver linings: Early edition
http://www.kypolitics.org/kypolitics/2008/11/surveyusa-mcconnell-headed-for-8-10-point-win.html I am doing my best to remain optimistic about McCain pulling out an upset on Tuesday, but at least one very important race is close to being called early. Senator Mitch McConnell will most likely be headed back to Washington to throw monkey wrenches into the machinations of Obama and his Congressional stooges. His opponent in this race, jetsetter and all around D-bag Bruce | Read More »
Who Will Primary John Ensign?
This guy is throwing John McCain under the bus to cover up for his failure to recruit capable candidates and raise enough money to support them. For his failure and disloyalty, he deserves to have his career ended.
Dem Candidate Refuses to Remove Name of Fallen Soldier from Campaign Website
A Democrat candidate for the Senate in Oklahoma has thus far refused to remove from his campaign website the name of a fallen U.S. soldier despite the fact that the soldier’s Mother and family have repeatedly asked that Rice remove their son’s name. Candidate Andrew Rice hosts on his site advertising for his campaign a page that lists a number of soldiers from Oklahoma that | Read More »
Red State Directors: Please Launch a Sarah Palin for Senate Write-in Campaign!!!
I’ll make this brief: The Red State Directors should endorse a Sarah Palin write-in campaign in the Alaska Senate race. It could be the one thing that saves the seat for the GOP. Stevens might even choose to end his campaign if faced with this additional obstacle. If she wins, she can decline the seat, whether she becomes vice president or remains governor. The seat | Read More »
Team McCain sends Chris Matthews a copy of the Constitution
The MSNBC noisemaker Chris Matthews recently blasted Sarah Palin for remarks she had made to children regarding the role of the Vice President in the Senate, suggesting that the veep could have a policy role. Matthews screamed at McCain spokeswoman Nancy Pfotenhauer that Sarah didn’t understand the Constitution, that all the veep could do was to break ties in the Senate. That is the only | Read More »
