Jane Norton Is About to Ask Cinamon for Permission to Go Negative
Ken Buck is leading Jane Norton by ten percentage points in Colorado. He has Jim DeMint’s endorsement, an army of grassroots support, and momentum headed into July. We need to help him keep it up. Ken Buck will be a conservative rockstar in the United States Senate. But he needs our help. As for the title reference to Cinamon, go here.
Mike Lee Is Up 9 Points
In the race for Bob Bennett’s Senate seat in Utah, Mike Lee is ahead by 9 points. (PDF) This is important because Bridgewater can write himself huge checks between now and the primary election to close any gap, so the further ahead Mike is the better. This also means you need to give as much money as you can as quickly as you can and | Read More »
Mitch Daniels Declares Surrender
I have had great hopes for the Governor of Indiana running for President. Signs are starting to point to a run and in the process Daniels is signaling he is not so much a leader as a technocratic wonk and not so much driven by fiscal conservative principles as by bureaucratically generated data. A leader would not pick an unnecessary fight with social conservatives before | Read More »

Tim Bridgewater: Indonesian Job Creator
Tim Bridgewater want to pretend the Utah primary is about a businessman versus a lawyer. Given Bridgewater’s track record, he’s using the term “businessman” loosely. In fact, I can’t tell that any of businesses are profitable except for the infusions of cash secured for him by Bob Bennett as earmarks. Along the way, Bridgewater has been creating jobs, just not for Utahans — for Indonesians. | Read More »
Told You So
I told you so. CNN is confirming what I’ve said since before election results were in Tuesday night. Jim DeMint is not going to endorse in the South Carolina runoff. Gresham Barrett has been touting his ties to DeMint and sending out mail with them on it together. He has been suggesting and expecting an endorsement. That will not come. Considering the two are close | Read More »

Pride, the Fall, and Barack Obama
The Houston Chronicle is reporting the Netherlands, a experienced oil producing nation, offered the United States help in dealing with the British Petroleum spill very quickly after it started, but the Obama Administration turned them down, opting instead to coordinate with BP to stop the spill and contain the damage. Made worse, with the Obama administration threatening criminal and civil prosecution of British Petroleum as | Read More »
What is it About South Carolina’s Male Politicians?
I realize they don’t like getting beaten by a woman and Nikki Haley is the first woman in South Carolina to get so far, but Gresham Barrett is off to a rough start in the runoff. First Barrett says character is all that counts: “Character is not one of the things that matters,” he said. “It’s the only thing that matters.” Then he immediately tells | Read More »
No Time to Go Wobbly: It’s Time to Follow the New Iron Ladies Into Battle
As the two prepared for the first Gulf war, Margaret Thatcher famously told George H.W. Bush “this is no time to go wobbly.” Well, I don’t think it’s an exaggeration to believe that we are now fully engaged in a political war for the very future of our nation. It is no time for us to go wobbly. The Republican Establishment is declaring this their | Read More »
Support Sharron Angle. Beat Harry Reid.
Sharron Angle is going to need an immediate infusion of cash from conservative activists to beat Harry Reid. She can do it. Polling in the last days of the primary showed Angle, but not Lowden, beating Harry Reid. The voters chose wisely. Angle can win, but we have to help her. Reid has a pile of cash ready to define Angle. She is going to | Read More »
Send some money to Bill Connor and Nikki Haley
Bill Connor made it to the runoff in South Carolina. This is the guy who has had his combat record attacked by his opponents. They claimed he did not fight in Afghanistan, even though he did. Like Nikki Haley, Bill is an outsider and a reformer. When Nikki Haley makes it to the Governor’s Mansion, she’s going to need someone presiding over the State Senate | Read More »

Blanche Lincoln Beats the Left
As Moe noted, Blanche Lincoln is the Democrats’ nominee in Arkansas. She is the incumbent the leftroots and SEIU tried desperately to defeat. A White House official told the Politico, “Organized labor just flushed $10 million of their members’ money down the toiled on a pointless exercise,” the official said. “If even half that total had been well-targeted and applied in key House races across | Read More »
The Most Dangerous Woman
They called Nikki Haley a whore. They called her a raghead. Now they better start practicing calling her Governor. Nikki Haley came within a percentage point or two of avoiding a runoff for the Republican nomination in South Carolina. Despite all the smears and all the foul play, she is a winner. The second place finisher, Congressman Gresham Barrett, goes into the runoff roughly 27% | Read More »
