    Time Magazine has released its 40 Under 40 list for the year. Question number two is “What’s your go-to political blog?”Among Republicans on the list, is the most consistent answer. Those listing RedState as their go-to blog include Marco Rubio, Nikki Haley, George P. Bush, Sean Duffy, Nick Ayers, and Mike Lee.Surprisingly, among the Democrats, not a single person listed Daily Kos as a | Read More »

    Congressman Charlie Wilson Is A Wife Beater

    Good job by Mike Flynn and Big Government uncovering this absolutely horrendous court filing detailing the abuse Congressman Charlie Wilson (D-OH) inflicted on his ex-wife — much of which he admitted to doing in a deposition. Clara Wilson went so far as to use the term “extreme cruelty” to describe what Charlie Wilson put her through.Wilson admitted in his deposition to grabbing his wife by | Read More »

    Birthers:Chamberpots::Birth Certificate:Chamber Money

    Kristi Noem for Congress

    I have a co-worker who is a massive fan of Kristi Noem and is convinced we need to go as much for her as possible. I’ve been negligent in writing about her because, frankly, there are so many races and so much going on. But this is great news. Noem has raised over $1 million, which puts her as one of the top challengers in | Read More »

    Barack Obama the Birther

    Barack Obama accusing the Chamber of Commerce of laundering foreign money and putting it into the election this year is as crazy as the Birthers demanding to see his birth certificate having convinced themselves Obama is a foreign born manchurian candidate.I largely agree with Glenn Reynolds on this. Obama is raising the specter of foreign influence in the election so his base views the 2010 | Read More »

    I Endorse Tom Tancredo for Governor of Colorado

    If you have not read Nightwister’s post you need to.If the Republicans in Colorado get less than ten percent of the vote in the gubernatorial race, the Colorado GOP will lose its privileged position in Colorado as a major party — a designation that gives it automatic ballot access.This will tremendously impact down ballot races in Colorado long term.At a time when the GOP is | Read More »

    On the Battle Between Midgets vs. Tigers

    “When the book is written on Election 2010, the media will mock the O’Donnell candidacy, but whether she wins or loses she will be a hero in my book.”In the battle between midgets versus tigers, the midgets can win. But a few of the midgets must sacrifice themselves to distract the tigers.First of all, yes, yes I know it should be midgets versus lions, but | Read More »

    BREAKING: DSCC Sending Reinforcements to Delaware for Coons

    Is the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee a bit concerned about the potential impact of the Tea Party in Delaware or have the Democrats completely written off Carol Shea-Porter running for New Hampshire’s 1st Congressional District?I ask because the Democrats have sent the lady who was on the ground running operations for Carol Shea-Porter’s congressional bid to Delaware to be the Field Director for Chris Coons | Read More »

    David Frum and the Limits to Deviancy

    NewsReal Blog has done an investigative piece into one of its former writers. The writer, Alex Knepper, now writes for David Frum.Alex Knepper is a 20 year old adult who wrote longingly of CHILF’s. You, like I, probably have no idea what that is. If you know what a MILF is (NSFW, but you can google it), substitute the “mother” for “child”.What makes this relevant, | Read More »

    Barack Obama Is ‘A Threat to Our Democracy’

    “[U]nlike the Chamber of Commerce, the Obama campaign most likely accepted into its campaign coffers donations from foreign individuals and never returned the money.”When you’ve hung around with so many people who idealize communism and socialism and loath the United States, you tend to develop an inner-Soviet voice. Barack Obama sure has.He let it slip with Joe the Plumber and Obama’s talk of wealth redistribution. | Read More »
