    Senate Republicans to Tea Party Activists: Go To H – E – Double Hockeysticks

    I told you a while back about a small group of Republican Senators sitting down for drinks at the Capitol Hill Club. They’d been to a tea party rally that day and were openly mocking the tea partiers. One of them, a guy tea partiers adore, seemed to hold them in open contempt at this table. Well, between the tea partiers and Jim DeMint, these | Read More »

    It is time for conservatives to get off the fence in KS-01

    Lots of conservatives have sat out KS-01 because we all like Rob Wassinger, who worked for Sam Brownback, but whose campaign is going nowhere.But because of that, conservatives have let down Tim Huelskamp, a solidly pro-life, fiscal conservative that both I, Concerned Women of America, the Club for Growth have endorsed.Surveys are coming out showing the most liberal man (big spending and pro-abortion) in the | Read More »

    Ron Johnson Beating Russ Feingold

    kay, so it is within the margin of error and only one point ahead, but it is against Russ Feingold. That’s great.It is 47 to 46 in Ron Johnson’s favor. More troubling for Feingold, the polling shows that 42% of Wisconsin voters strongly disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy with another 8% somewhat disapproving. Johnson has been steadily going up in the poll while | Read More »

    Frank Guinta the Grandstander

    Those emails from the Attorney General’s Office in New Hampshire haven’t done a lot of damage to Kelly Ayotte — at least as much as people thought.

    Breaking Ranks When The Heat Is On: What Happens When Amateurs Go To War (With Each Other)

    have long maintained that while this administration is great at running campaigns, it is a miserable failure at actually running an administration.
