FL-Sen is….. looking good?
A new poll out today by Rasmussen Reports shows Connie Mack, the likely Republican nominee, leading Senator Bill Nelson 46-37, a reversal of the same poll taken a few months prior: Republican Congressman Connie Mack draws his highest level of support yet against incumbent Democrat Bill Nelson in Florida’s 2012 U.S. Senate race. A new Rasmussen Reports statewide telephone survey of Likely Voters shows | Read More »
I am Sluticus.
So apparently Rush Limbaugh called 30-year old law student Something ForgotHerName a slut. I say apparently because I didn’t hear it (I’m not a Rush listener, but I have listened from time to time), only accounts of it. Mainly from Ace over at his HQ. It seems like he was trying to make a joke, made a poor one at her expense and then apologized | Read More »
We are going to need to raise taxes
I think we need tax increases. I think we do need to have some people pay more into government. I think there are plenty of people not paying enough taxes. Everyday I hear more people complaining that their own taxes should go up (ahem, they can do that without changing the tax code, but I digress), so let’s help them out. I think we can | Read More »
How about a nice game of Chess, Charlie?
So Charlie Crist has been thinking about ditching the Republican party and running as an independent in the Senate race. Maybe he fancies himself as the next Lieberman (without the incumbency)? He does have that one poll that shows him with barely a lead in a three way race. I said it before and I’ll say it again, there is no way forward for Charlie | Read More »
Hi everyone, Just wanted to give an update. Eli Joseph Hauser was born last night at 6:11pm weighing 6 pounds 14 oz and is 21 inches long! Baby, momma and papa are doing well.
Michael Williams (R-TX) Announces Run for Senate!
In my previous blog, I said that I wished Michael Williams, the Texas Railroad Chairman, would run for the Senate seat to be vacated by Kay Bailey Hutchison. He’s been elected statewide in Texas a few times, is popular and most importantly he’s a conservative with no hyphens needed. I am on the WilliamsForTexas.com emailing list, so I was pleasantly surprised today to read the | Read More »
Michael Williams (R-TX) for Senate
Promoted from Diaries. – Moe Lane I’ve been a big fan of Michael Williams’ for the last couple of years. I don’t quite remember how I, living in Oregon, came about knowing who the Chairman of the Texas Railroad Commission was, but I support him to replace Kay Bailey Hutchison as the Senator from the great state of Texas. First, Hutchison is starting to set | Read More »
Today, I announce my candidacy for President
As of 1:09 this morning, I became constitutionally eligible to be President of the United States of America. I would like to announce that I am running for president in 2012. I state my qualifications: I am a naturally born citizen. I am 35 years old. As for “implied” qualifications, I would like to thank the current president-elect for pretty much doing away with that. | Read More »
Today is my 4th birthday at RedState
In the middle of 2004, I was told about this new blog called RedState. I was an avid reader of “Daly Thoughts” and Gerry linked here. I didn’t quite get the concept of a group blog back then. I read the front page and that was about it. I started reading the diaries and the comments and then registered on this date 4 years ago, | Read More »
Card Check for you, Secret Ballot for them.
In keeping with the Elected Elite, what’s good for them isn’t to be allowed for the “little people.” As Democrats look to push Card Check legislation, where the union thugs get to see how you voted, they keep their votes on some things still private – like whether to strip Joe Lieberman of his chairmanship of the Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee. Sens. Chris | Read More »
On the Good News Front – The Incubation Chambers
We lost, however it looks not quite as bad as it did last night. Obama’s victory doesn’t seem to have been as big as either of the Clinton victories, nor the 1988 Bush victory. Also, Obama apparently didn’t have as big of the coattails I feared. The Democrats will pick up about 15-18 House seats when they were previously looking to get at least 25. | Read More »
For the next 4 years, I will be the most patriotic person you’ve ever met.
I’m a pretty positive person by nature. I don’t think I would be a conservative it that weren’t so. I was more disappointed 2 years ago than I was last night. I figured that a Democrat would occupy the White House this term, but when the 2006 election happened we were facing a Democrat President and a Democrat Congress. Thankfully we will still hold the | Read More »
This one’s for John
John Elway was the master of the comeback in his playing days. He had an amazing 47 of them, accounting for about 1/3 of his total wins. The Broncos were never out of a game with #7 at quarterback. The Broncos are a way of life there, and after back to back Championships, John Elway is the most beloved person in all of Colorado. He | Read More »
Wave of First Time Voters? Not so much – Gallup
So the Gallup Poll (while polling for their tracking poll) asked respondents “whether this would be the first time they had voted in a presidential election, or whether they had voted for president before.” We’ve been subject to numerous stories about all the new young and black voters that Barack Obama would bring in this year, how excited they were, how they were going to | Read More »
Quick ACORN question
I would like to see a breakdown of the D/R/I split on all these fraudulent ACORN voter registrations. CNN’s report was decent. Don’t get me wrong, I’m glad that this stuff is being reported, and it should be reported more (and the FBI should be frog-marching people). This is just a question that I had. Just curious, ya know.
An American Carol – my review (Go see it)
I just got back from An American Carol. Totally worth seeing. I’ll try to keep it short and avoid spoilers. First, now I know what it finally feels like to be a Democrat at the movies. I got to see a movie where they made fun of the other political persuasion the entire time. That’s worth the price of admission alone, heh. If you like | Read More »
McCain gets the 3am call
When the mortgage deal was looking like it was dead in Congress, Treasury Secretary Hank Paulson called the man who has a history of getting bi-partisan bills done. It wasn’t 3am on the clock, but it certainly was a critical time when a respected leader was needed to get things done. He called Senator John McCain: BOB SCHIEFFER: I am told, Maggie, that the way | Read More »
Hey Obama, This Is How It’s Done
“Come on guys, I’ve answered like, eight questions,” – Barack Obama March 3, 2008. That was response Barack Obama gave when he was tired of having to answer for what one of his economic advisers had said (Goolsbee’s assurance that Canada shouldn’t worry that we’re pulling out of NAFTA). A major incident in his campaign (you know, the reason he’s qualified for president) and he | Read More »
Palin Hacker – Son of Democrat Lawmaker?
Yet another offspring of a Dem politician doing illegal things to interfere with an election. From the Tennessean NASHVILLE – The son of state Rep. Mike Kernell has been contacted by authorities in connection with a probe into the hacking of personal e-mail of vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, Kernell told The Tennessean. Kernell, a Memphis Democrat, said his 20-year-old son David had been contacted | Read More »
Embattled Biden Begins Discussion of Eagleton Scenario (Updated with Video!)
The new york times (sic) reports that in a New Hampshire townhall meeting today Joe Biden said that Hillary Clinton should have been the Veep pick: Senator Joseph R. Biden Jr., the Democrats’ vice presidential nominee, said this afternoon that perhaps Senator Barack Obama should have chosen someone else as his running mate. Responding to a question at a town hall-style meeting at Nashua Community | Read More »
Biden: Palin is Qualified to be VP
Joe Biden was asked about Governor Palin’s qualifications: Biden said he doesn’t know (Gov) Palin but, “(everything) I know about her, there’s no reason not to respect her and believe she’s qualified to be the vice president.” More Biden: “If you get elected governor of a state, you’re qualified, and she’s apparently a very popular governor.” Biden said Tuesday night in an interview with the | Read More »
I am in awe of the McCain campaign
Last night I went to bed thinking Gov Pawlenty was going to be the Veep pick, it wasn’t certain, but it was pretty likely (especially with the rope-a-dope on canceling his Denver appearances). InTrade moved all around between Pawlenty and Romney. The long shot was Lieberman. Early on we heard Sarah Palin was on the short list, but there wasn’t much from her recently. Eric | Read More »
McCain’s new web ad.
The best part? Obama himself (after election, prior to his taking the oath of office): You know, I am a believer in … in knowing what you’re doing when you apply for a job. Uh, and I think that … if I were seriously to consider running on a national ticket, I would essentially have to start now, before having served a day in the | Read More »
We knew it was premade
So we all remember Hillary’s 3am ad, and how it was just about perfect if you want to switch her out for McCain and run it against Barack. Here’s the new ad by McCain that features part of it….
Breaking news! New Obama campaign theme song released
Here is the new Obama campaign theme song: Just thought I’d have a little fun on a Friday afternoon
