RedState's Dear Leader.


    The Charlatans

    The GOP spent a ton of money through a bunch of organizations, including Super PACs, that was flat out wasted. The Newt Gingrich Super PAC was just a sign of things to come it seems. The excuse that is going to be used is that had these groups not spent the money, the GOP would have suffered major losses. For the past several months, even | Read More »


    The usual hand wringing is occurring now about social conservatives causing the GOP to lose.Todd Akin lost because he swallowed his foot and kept gagging on it, not because he is pro-life.Richard Mourdock was beaten by a Democrat who ran as a pro-lifer.As for the so called “war on women,” there is no war on women and women did not abandon Mitt Romney for Barack | Read More »

    Status Quo Ante

    Status Quo Ante

    Like when an unstoppable force meets an immovable object, we now know what happens when a candidate so weak anybody can beat him meets a candidate so weak he cannot beat anybody. Americans vote for the status quo. $6 billion later, Americans voted for the status quo. Karl Rove, call your donors.Republicans will keep the House. Democrats will keep the Senate. Obama will keep the | Read More »

    Who The Heck Knows?

    Republicans are supposed to be “rah-rah” for Romney today.Democrats are supposed to be “rah-rah” for Obama today.I don’t much believe either side at this point. Democrats are supremely confident right now in Washington. The Republican consultants not so much. It is a reversal from just two weeks ago.Here’s what I do know and do believe.I believe Mitt Romney will win Florida, Virginia, and Colorado. If | Read More »

    Private Emails From Texas Speaker Joe Straus's Office Reveal War Against Conservatives

    “These e-mails from the redistricting process shed new light on just how dismissive the Straus team was of Republican Party and conservative efforts to draw more fair districts – and should serve as a warning bell to the new House that it is time for Straus to go.”RedState has uncovered never-before-seen, profanity-laden e-mails between senior staff and legislative lieutenants of Texas’ liberal GOP House Speaker | Read More »

    50,000 Feet Looking Down

    I believe Mitt Romney will win on election day. I’m somewhat stunned to be writing that as I never really thought he could win until about the moment Clint Eastwood trotted out on stage at the Republican National Convention with that empty chair. Even now I waver by the hour, but if forced to predict, I think Romney wins Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, Colorado, Wisconsin, | Read More »

    You Too Can Be Like Former Daily Kos Blogger Nate Silver

    Nate Silver has all the liberals calmed down these days. He is the Xanax of the activist left, nervous about Tuesday. In an article HotAir linked to earlier today about rich, white San Francisco residents so upset by the thought of a Romney win they can’t use their home gyms, Mary Katharine Ham found this hilarious quote about a liberal who watched the first debate: | Read More »

    This Race is Over

    We are less than a week from the election.At this point, I just want it over. I want my life back. I’m worn out. I am struggling to still care now that I have cast my absentee ballot.I think most Americans feel that way. The people of Ohio and Florida are begging for a return to TV ads for male enhancement drugs and self-lubricating catheters. | Read More »

    If You Want to Repeal Obamacare, Support Akin & Mourdock

    If You Want to Repeal Obamacare, Support Akin & Mourdock

    What has been overshadowed by pro-life remarks made by Todd Akin and Richard Mourdock is that the Republicans must take back the United States Senate to have a chance of repealing Obamacare.Even if Mitt Romney wins, it will be for naught if Harry Reid still controls the Senate. That is the reality. That is why Republicans must rally to two gentlemen who are committed pro-lifers, | Read More »

    Did Barack Obama Intentionally Mislead KUSA’s Kyle Clark About ‘Abound Solar’?

    Did Barack Obama Intentionally Mislead KUSA's Kyle Clark About 'Abound Solar'?

    President Obama gave an interview to Kyle Clark of Colorado NBC affiliate KUSA. In the interview, which saw the President answer and try to dodge some of the toughest question he’s been asked the whole campaign season, the President claimed the White House has no involvement with stimulus funds going to a company called Abound Solar. The company, as you can guess, is another loser | Read More »

    Cheap Tricks and One Night Stands

    If you needed further proof about just how much the President has cheapened the Presidency, consider his latest ad, which not only compares voting for him for the first time to losing virginity, but also ridicules those who might not want to lose their virginity to just any politician. This is the peer group peer pressure people across the political aisle have complained about in | Read More »

    The Extremists Who Report the News

    I’m sending Richard Mourdock some money and you should too. I want to explain to you just how extremist the media is on abortion and just how much spinning in favor of killing kids the media does.According to Gallup polling, roughly a quarter of the population supports Richard Mourdock’s position on abortion — that the only exception in support of abortion should be the life | Read More »

    Obama’s Hubris Will be His Undoing

    Barack Obama has lost North Carolina and Florida. His ground game is at near parity in early voting with the GOP, the GOP is more energized, and he is going to lose both. But he will not stop spending money in those two states and redirect the resources to Ohio, which is now a must win state for him. He will not do it because | Read More »
