    Generic Congressional Vote Starting to Look Ugly for Democrats

    Generic Congressional Vote Starting to Look Ugly for Democrats

    Conventional wisdom about this midterm election is that while Democrats are defending difficult turf in the Senate and face possible substantial losses, the redistricting after the 2010 census eliminated significant numbers of meaningfully competitive House seats, which should prevent an equivalent wave from forming in the House. The way the generic Congressional vote polls are starting to look, the Democrats better hope that this is | Read More »

    Alex Wagner, Eugenics, and Brainwashing

    Alex Wagner, Eugenics, and Brainwashing

    Via Caleb Howe comes this astonishing clip of MSNBC host Alex Wagner showing some justified concern about how eugenics is still practiced even today. Amazingly, however, she seems to believe that the most important means through which eugenics is practiced today is actually important to the prevention of eugenics. On MSNBC’s Now with Alex Wagner on Monday, the host unleashed a tirade at Republicans over their supposed | Read More »

    Iowa CBS Affiliate Runs Free Ad for Bruce Braley

    Iowa CBS Affiliate Runs Free Ad for Bruce Braley

    You sort of expect liberal media bias at the national level but this astounding segment from a local CBS affiliate out of Cedar Rapids, Iowa ought to count as a donation in kind to Democrat Bruce Braley. Under the guise of “reporting news,” watch as this segment gives the uninterrupted stage to Braley and his surrogates:   Nary a word from or about Joni Ernst | Read More »

    Will the GOP Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory on Immigration?

    Will the GOP Snatch Defeat from the Jaws of Victory on Immigration?

    For the first time in several years the GOP has opened a polling lead on who voters trust more to handle immigration, a clear reaction to President Obama’s overreach on the issue. However, the responses indicate a more nuanced view of immigration policy than this headline might suggest: Now, 34 percent of voters in the most competitive House and Senate races say they trust the | Read More »

    Mark Udall (D-CO) is Scared to Debate on Television

    Mark Udall (D-CO) is Scared to Debate on Television

    Mark Udall is not playing to win; he is playing not to lose. Udall made it official last night that he will not debate Cory Gardner on television at any point during the campaign. For a guy who is clinging to a tenuous lead in the last two months of a campaign, this cannot inspire confidence in his supporters. Instead of getting an hour of | Read More »

    They Told Me If I Voted for the Establishment, This Would Not Happen

    They Told Me If I Voted for the Establishment, This Would Not Happen

    In this year’s Republican Senate primaries, the establishment went full nuclear on grassroots candidates and the voters that supported them, burning bridges with committed activists and engaging in shameful Democrat tactics to slander TEA Party candidates along with anyone who worked with them or for them. The ostensible reason for this absurd, scorched-earth campaign was the stated belief that TEA Party campaigns had cost Republicans | Read More »

    We’ll Probably Get Fooled Again

    We'll Probably Get Fooled Again

    The Washington Post and ABC have conducted a joint poll which asked respondents to rate Obama’s presidency on whether it has been a “failure” or a “success.” Note that this question is different conceptually from whether you approve or disapprove of the job someone is doing as President, which indicates current trajectory rather than overall performance. The results nonetheless were probably about what you’d expect: | Read More »

    Harry Reid Trolls Himself

    Harry Reid Trolls Himself

    Harry Reid and other Democrats are mad at Republicans. The reason? Republicans have allowed a vote on the Bernie Sanders/Tom Udall anti-Koch Brothers constitutional amendment. Seriously. Via Politico: Many of the Republicans only voted for the bill to foul up Democrats’ pre-election messaging schedule, freezing precious Senate floor time for a measure that ultimately has no chance of securing the two-thirds support necessary in both | Read More »

    Ray Rice, Abortion, and Being Led About by the Viscera

    Ray Rice, Abortion, and Being Led About by the Viscera

    The gossip web rag TMZ released video this morning of Ray Rice punching his then-fiancee Janay Palmer in the elevator of the Revel Casino in Atlantic City. I’m not going to embed the video in this post; if you are curious enough to actually see it you can Google it and see several versions of it that are variously enhanced. It appears to Palmer and | Read More »

    Tom Udall vs. The First Amendment

    Tom Udall vs. The First Amendment

      Pretend moderate Tom* Udall (D-NM) has teamed up with avowed socialist Bernie Sanders (Socialist-VT) to pen a lengthy, meandering, hypocritical, and logically challenged piece in Politico describing a constitutional amendment they have submitted that is designed to ensure that only Democrats and socialists can participate fully in the Democratic process. But today, those improvements are in serious jeopardy. The Supreme Court struck down a major | Read More »

    Chaos in Kansas Plays to Pat Roberts’ Favor

    Chaos in Kansas Plays to Pat Roberts' Favor

    The bizarre Kansas Senate race took another twist yesterday when the Kansas Secretary of State ruled that Democrat Chad Taylor, who had attempted to withdraw from the race, would still be on the final ballot: The Kansas Senate campaign upended again Thursday when Secretary of State Kris Kobach said Democrat Chad Taylor must remain on the ballot — less than 24 hours after Taylor filed | Read More »

    First Tillis v. Hagan Debate Set for Tonight

    First Tillis v. Hagan Debate Set for Tonight

    Kay Hagan has been running a surprisingly close campaign against Thom Tillis, in spite of the fact that Hagan has done almost nothing of substance to distance herself from President Obama, who is broadly unpopular in North Carolina (and even more so if you accept the proposition that most everything Rasmussen does these days is garbage). Tillis is facing his own popularity problems in North | Read More »

    Rand Paul’s Transparent Duplicity on Iraq

    Rand Paul's Transparent Duplicity on Iraq

    Watching Rand Paul come to a decision on foreign policy can be a dizzying experience, even for seasoned watchers of the career of Mitt Romney. Two short months ago, as ISIS was already rampaging across the Iraqi countryside, Rand Paul went on MSNBC and declared that Obama was doing a fine job in Iraq and that any problems that occurred there were the fault of | Read More »

    Will Obama Throw Republicans Into the Briar Patch on Amnesty?

    Will Obama Throw Republicans Into the Briar Patch on Amnesty?

    Brian Beutler, who is what passes for an intelligent thinker in today’s American left, wrote an article in TNR yesterday encouraging President Obama to immediately implement his plan to enact amnesty via executive fiat, instead of waiting until after the elections. More specifically, Beutler wrote that such a move would not only be good policy, but also good politics. The sole basis for this assertion | Read More »

    Colorado’s Mark Udall Campaigning on Moral Cretinism

    Colorado's Mark Udall Campaigning on Moral Cretinism

    I am not sure if it will work or not, but Democrat Mark Udall is clearly convinced that he can ride to victory campaigning against the notion that an unborn human is a person. Virtually every word out of his mouth and a substantial portion of his ad buys focus exclusively on defending the absolute legal right to kill the smallest and most defenseless people | Read More »
