    The Andre Bauer Campaign Strategy: From Wh*re to ‘Raghead’ With David Brody In Between

    Well, Andre Bauer’s campaign to paint Nikki Haley as a two-timing wh*re — and you’ll have to forgive me if you object to the word, but that is exactly what the dribbling out of “I slept with Nikki Haley” stories was designed to do — blew up in his face.Now he’s moved on to her being a raghead.

    The “W” word and the South Carolina Strategy

    I got a lot of flack for stringing the media along last week Will Folks style. Even some good friends thought I was grasping at straws and my case for pointing the finger at Andre Bauer was too nebulous.Guess what? Following up on Moe, Andre Bauer fired his campaign consultant Larry Marchant yesterday. Why? Well, let’s back up.Will Folks and Larry Marchant are connected and | Read More »

    What’s Going on with Obama and the Military?

    There is a real internal fight shaping up that I suspect is going to fester into a significant wound to Barack Obama’s Presidency.The Joint Chiefs of Staff are in open and public rebellion against the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs over Don’t Ask Don’t Tell.

At the same time, however, we should be willing to point out the massive ties between British Petroleum and the Obama Administration.From Rahm Emanuel to Barack Obama’s own campaign coffers to pollster | Read More »

    Washington Bleeding in Alabama

    Tonight in Alabama the Democrats were crushed. Democrats crushed even Democrats. Popular congressman Artur Davis, running for Governor of Alabama, was crushed with an anti-Washington message.Parker Griffith, the Democrat turned Republican was likewise crushed by challenger Mo Brooks who pounded on Griffith for being a Washington opportunist.It’s easy for us to say this is a Democrat bloodbath, but the truth of the matter is this | Read More »
