    Handel vs. Deal

    In my newspaper column today I make clear I am sticking with Karen Handel in the Georgia GOP gubernatorial primary. This is the silliest thing. It is virtually unheard of for a candidate going into a runoff with a greater than ten point lead to lose the runoff. Nathan Deal, in the midst of a federal grand jury investigation of his business conduct, is throwing | Read More »

    Lame Duck Session Is Happening

    The Deficit Reduction Commission will have its proposals back as soon as the election is over. It is intentional. They don’t want to drop off a politically unpopular set of proposals before the election, lest voters reject people who support them.Instead, they’ll have the package of tax increases out right after the election.Congress will have a lame duck session to vote on them, banking on | Read More »

    The Elite vs. the People

    A federal district judge in San Francisco has decided the citizens of a state prohibiting gay marriage violates the constitution. “Gender no longer forms an essential part of marriage,” said the judge, overturning several thousand years of history in one fell swoop. A majority of the citizens of California, the most progressive state in the union, disagree.In fact, 32 states ban gay marriage by constitution | Read More »

    Rent a Family

    I hate to take a dig at Ben Quayle, running against Pamela Gorman in Arizona’s 3rd and also son of the former Vice President, but this is just too funny.Quayle sent out a mail piece of him holding one young child with another in a seat. The caption under it reads, in part, “Tiffany and I live in this district and we are going to | Read More »

    The Party of No

    Democrats spend a lot of time trying to pin the “Party of No” label on Republicans. But under Chairman Tom Price of Georgia, the Republican Study Committee (the caucus of social and economic conservatives in the U.S. House of Representatives) has started a new series of emails to show—in very real terms—how the Democrats in the House really are the “Party of No.”Traditionally, including under | Read More »

    Rick Scott Continues to Lead Bill McCollum in Florida

    The gubernatorial race in Florida continues to surprise me. Bill McCollum, the unquestionably conservative Attorney General and former congressman who played a part in Bill Clinton’s impeachment, is losing to a novice politician and former hospital CEO. With just three weeks until Election Day, and early voting beginning next week, Scott is beating McCollum in every demographic and geographic category of likely GOP voters, said | Read More »
