    Democrats Think Jack Conway’s Desperation Has Grown “Very Dangerous”

    Things must be really bad for Jack Conway. He’s gone on offense against Rand Paul with attacks that (a) reach back to college days and (b) are filled with lies.When asked about it over the weekend, Democratic Senator Claire McCaskill called Conway’s tactics “very dangerous.”Conway is directly attacking Rand Paul’s faith. It’s not only very dangerous, it is also disgusting. As Senator McCaskill notes, “Candidates | Read More »

    Some youthful videographers approached Congressman Lincoln Davis.It was all well and good until they mentioned some woman’s name — Norma Jean.Then the Congressman fled and his Chief of Staff shoved the cameraman.That all begs the question — who is Norman Jean? It isn’t Mrs. Davis. That much we know.

    Alex Sink Loves Felons

    I am a diehard Karen Handel supporter for Governor of Georgia. I believe Nathan Deal won the nomination by lying about Handel’s record. After Deal’s nomination, we now see what appears to be insurmountable allegations of corruption, bad business deals, near bankruptcy, etc.But all things being equal, I’ll be voting for Nathan Deal while holding my nose because even with all his problems, he is | Read More »

    Yes, I Am Voting for a Democrat

    Marginalizing Jim DeMint: Are Senate Republicans Trying to Get Tom Coburn to Be Judas to Conservatives?

    As you know, Senate Republicans are more than a little unhappy with Jim DeMint. The Senate GOP will see an influx of DeMint backed candidates after November. Consequently, the Senate GOP has become more fixated with marginalized Jim DeMint than fighting Barack Obama.For perspective, Mitch McConnell won’t even campaign against or speak ill of Harry Reid to help Sharron Angle. But his minion are all | Read More »
