    Buck Beats Bennet

    The Democrats said no way. They said Ken Buck is fringe, thinks social security is unconstitutional, and is opposed to the federal government taking over and destroying the student loan industry.The Democrats said there was no way Ken Buck could beat Michael Bennet.Heck, the GOP establishment said the same thing.According to Rasmussen, Buck is beating Bennet 46% to 41%.Maybe that is why the DSCC is | Read More »

    What? What? I thought Sharron Angle was imploding.

    I also thought she was out there on social security. That’s what the Democrats have been telling us. Heck, that’s what some Republicans have been telling us. And then she went and produced this bit of brilliance. An imploding campaign does not produce stuff like this. I like it. Sharron Angle can win. We must help.

    Me vs. Michael Steele

    Someone has started a silly rumor that I will be challenging Michael Steele for RNC Chairman thanks, in part, to RedState’s tremendous win record so far this year in GOP primaries. Mixed into this rumor is the suggestion that I am somehow to be opposed because of my position on gun control.To clear this up and stop more reporters from calling me, let me be | Read More »

    Deal in Georgia

    While we can question the wisdom of putting Nathan Deal up against Roy Barnes, that’s what Republicans decided in Georgia last night and we’ll respect their decision. The Deal campaign ran a great runoff. The Handel camp ran a textbook runoff race, but came up about 2500 votes short. This morning I’m told Karen Handel will be conceding the race. Republicans will now unite to | Read More »

    A Note To Conservatives Who Wanted to Suck Up to the Quayle Family

    Look, I get it. Dan and Marilyn Quayle are tremendous people. So when they call and say you should back their son who is running for Congress, you tend to say okay.But Ben Quayle is imploding. He did a “rent-a-family” mail piece purported showing him with his daughters, but he has none. Now, it turns out that Ben Quayle has a bit of a scandal | Read More »

    The Bill McCollum Campaign Looks Desperate and Dead to Integrity

    “Here we have the Attorney General of Florida abusing his office to destroy a company all to help his standing in the polls.” Holy cow. I never would have thought I’d see Bill McCollum stoop to cheap political tricks to try to boost his poll numbers.Short of putting a dead girl or live boy in Rick Scott’s trunk, I don’t think McCollum could have gone | Read More »

    Ken Buck Wins

    On December 21, 2009, I asked a very simple question: Why exactly must we support Jane Norton in Colorado instead of Ken Buck? I’m not saying I am or am not, but why must I? Lots of people think we must because the same guys in Washington who said Charlie Crist was our best hope in Florida say she is in Colorado. The blowback was | Read More »

    Ohio Democrats Attack Sean Hannity & John Kasich for Helping Soldiers’ Children

    “Ohio Democrats are attacking an organization doling out $15 million to the children of fallen or wounded soldiers just to score cheap political points.” In a political season where every Democrat is bitterly clinging by fingernails to the electoral cliff, we may have reached a new low from Ohio.Months ago a lady on the internet both Democrats and Republicans recognize is not quite playing in | Read More »
