    Lindsey Lohan Republicans

    I love Marc Thiessen columns at the Washington Post like I love moon pies and Coca-Cola — a most excellent combination of fine dining in the South.His column on Lindsey Lohan Republicans is no different. The fact is that Republican leaders in the House are looking toward a compromise on earmarks that would fall short of a total ban. Those advocating such a compromise say | Read More »

    What Was Before Is Again

    The New York Times ran an article over the weekend that the House of Representatives is still not in the hands of the GOP. A Newsweek survey came out with an oddity of a generic ballot answer. Gallup has been jumping all over the place.Had I a show, I’d say “roll the tape.” Instead, you’ll have to settle for this.Here’s Charlie Cook’s review of the | Read More »

    A few points to consider as you wake up

    The ‘One Nation’ rally happened this weekend. The majority of the crowd was bussed in by union groups and other leftwing groups. Compare that to tea party activists, the majority of whom pooled their money to go to DC for the 8/28 rally. A large segment of the crowd was paid to be there. Unions pay. Tea party groups and Glenn Beck did not on | Read More »

    Nevada’s Largest Newspaper Endorses Sharron Angle

    The last time Harry Reid ran for the Senate the Las Vegas Review Journal endorsed him.Not this time. Nevada’s largest newspaper has gone all in with Sharron Angle. In its endorsement, the newspaper deemed the election a clear choice between Angle, who supports limited government, and what it described as Washington’s big spending and partisan bickering.The editorial says Reid hitched his fortunes to President Barack | Read More »

    John Thune’s Tan Is Starting to Resemble Toast

    Let’s be honest for a minute. John Thune is a great United States Senator from South Dakota. But the only reason people talk about him for President is because he’s a good looking guy in a city full of lesser looking people, is tall, and has an attractive wife.Other than that his greatest accomplishments are doing nothing. But he gives a great talk about biennial | Read More »

    B. J. Lawson Might Shake Up NC-4

    I’ve been saying for a while that there are congressional districts out there that’ll flip to the GOP in 30 days that were not even on the radar.Put NC–4 on the radar. Democrat Congressman David Price is running against Dr. B. J. Lawson who is giving Price a run for his money.Several polls have come out in the past couple of weeks showing the race | Read More »

    Dear Thomas Friedman

    Dear Mr. Friedman,I read your column on Wednesday in which you wrote, “The Tea Party that has gotten all the attention, the amorphous, self-generated protest against the growth in government and the deficit, is what I’d actually call the “Tea Kettle movement” — because all it’s doing is letting off steam.”I suspect you are writing more about yourself than the actual Tea Party Movement.

    The Best Thing About the Next Congress Open Thread

    As noted on Twitter yesterday, the best thing about 2011 will be a Congress with Michelle Bachmann and without Alan Grayson.Consider this an open thread.

    The Nightmaes in Colorado Remain

    Yet another day the long Colorado nightmaes of Dan Maes continues. I think I’m just going to keep beating this like a dead horse every day.Yes, the time for Maes to go and have the ballot changed has passed. But as long as Maes remains active, some voters will stick with him and not go to Tancredo who has a much better shot.There is much | Read More »

    McDonald’s is the Next to Get Rid of Employee Healthcare

    This was not an unforeseen consequence of Obamacare. This was not unknown. This was not unexpected. It was predicted.McDonald’s is planning to drop the healthcare coverage of 30,000 employees unless the Obama Administration waives certain rules related to coverage. Trade groups representing restaurants and retailers say low-wage employers might halt their coverage if the government doesn’t loosen a requirement for “mini-med” plans, which offer limited | Read More »

    It is Time for Dan Maes to Go

    It is always a tough thing for candidates to do, but sometimes it is necessary.Dan Maes is running a terrible campaign terribly underfunded in Colorado. He has the establishment Republicans and most of the grassroots doing something no one thought was possible — rallying to Tom Tancredo.The latest polling in Colorado has Maes at 15%, behind Tancredo and Hickenlooper, the Democrat.Maes cannot win. There is | Read More »
