    Dear Republicans: No One Elected You to Work with Democrats

    Dear Republicans: No One Elected You to Work with Democrats

    As the reality of a Republican wave became imminent last night, a dangerous narrative began to take hold among the conservative talking heads on cable news and in the victory speeches of the victorious Republicans. The narrative was that now that the Republicans have control of both chambers of Congress, it is incumbent upon them to work with Obama and the other Democrats in the | Read More »

    A Fool and His Money are Soon Parted

    A Fool and His Money are Soon Parted

    For as much as the Democrats like to complain about the Koch brothers, most of the big time financiers of “shadowy” election groups are liberals. One of the more prominent of these financiers has been billionaire Tom Steyer, who has pumped $65 million of his personal money this cycle into campaigns opposing Republicans. Specifically, though, Steyer promised to make an issue out of “climate change” and to | Read More »

    Mark Udall Heckled By His Own Donor

    Mark Udall Heckled By His Own Donor

    Via Allahpundit comes this humorous tale of despair and woe from the waning days of Democrat ‘s re-election campaign: Then, finally, came the only reference to policy in Udall’s speech. “And by the way, I’m proud to stand with Colorado’s women,” he said, almost as an aside. “I’m proud to stand for reproductive freedom.” An angry voice from the crowd jeered: “That’s not the only | Read More »

    Tomorrow’s Biggest Loser Might Be Hillary Clinton

    Tomorrow's Biggest Loser Might Be Hillary Clinton

    Obviously, there are a ton of races that are too close to call at the present moment and the Democrats might well end up retaining control of the Senate and perhaps gaining a couple of gubernatorial seats. However, the smarter money right now is on the Democrats losing at least 6 seats in the Senate (and possibly as many as 10) while failing to capitalize | Read More »

    Tom Harkin Calls Joni Ernst “Taylor Swift”

    You can’t involve yourself in long-term shameless, unprincipled pandering to a group unless you have a pretty sizeable amount of contempt for that group, and that is especially true of Democrats with women. The Democrats have now run two consecutive election cycles almost exclusively on opposing a completely fictional Republican “war on women.” Unfortunately, they haven’t got the foggiest conception of what that should entail | Read More »

    In Tennessee, Vote Yes on 1

    In Tennessee, Vote Yes on 1

    Here in my home state of Tennessee, there’s not much of interest statewide on the ballot. Incumbent Republican governor Bill Haslam and are expected to cruise to easy victories. None of the U.S. House races are expected to generate any huge surprises. Even most of the state legislature races are comparatively quiet. But there are still important ballot measures that should drive conservative Tennessee voters | Read More »

    Mary Burke Campaign Uses Swastikas in Pro-Mary Burke Ad

    Mary Burke Campaign Uses Swastikas in Pro-Mary Burke Ad

    In proving that Godwin’s Law applies to struggling Democrat campaigns just like it applies to the Internet, the Mary Burke campaign has decided to flash some swastikas in some ads that are encouraging people to vote for Mary Burke. Here is the ad in question, and it’s just as ridiculous as you might think it would be:   Here’s the basic gist of the ad | Read More »

    Nate Cohn Thinks the Democrats can Win by Losing

    Nate Cohn Thinks the Democrats can Win by Losing

    Nate Cohn, writing in the New York Times, did his best to put some lipstick on a pig yesterday by suggesting that the impending Republican victory (which he has been busily trying to suggest will not happen) isn’t really bad news for Democrats at all. Cohn’s article is fairly typical of the completely evidence-free wishful thinking I recall our side engaging in during the latter | Read More »

    Joni Ernst is Right to Skip Editorial Board Meetings

    Joni Ernst is Right to Skip Editorial Board Meetings

    The media’s sense of entitlement is really something to behold whenever they feel like they aren’t getting their due. The most recent example of this phenomenon has been the media’s reaction to Joni Ernst’s decision to skip meetings with three editorial board meetings, including one with the Des Moines Register, last week. The media, predictably, is up in arms over the gall of Ernst in | Read More »

    The Democrats’ Desperate, Race-Baiting Push

    The Democrats' Desperate, Race-Baiting Push

    As several key Senate races head down to the wire, many embattled Democrats have, in desperation, resorted to their most reliable, tried and true tactic: race baiting. None has done so more gratuitously or offensively than the pasty white creature of privilege who has distributed flyers suggesting that if Thom Tillis won, blacks would be lynched and more recently suggested that Thom Tillis killed Trayvon Martin. | Read More »

    Here is a Dumb Ad by Some Braindead Idiot Liars (NARAL)

    Via The Federalist, the drooling moral cretins at NARAL Colorado have really outdone themselves, even when you take into consideration that it’s NARAL you’re dealing with. , of course, is on record supporting making the birth control pill available over the counter, which somehow in the mind of NARAL equates to making it illegal. The rest of the ad is filled with literally every dumb | Read More »

    Mitch McConnell is a Modern Day Sir John French

    Almost exactly 100 years ago (which is to say, longer ago than anything Ezra Klein cares about), British general Sir John French, Commander in Chief of the British Expeditionary Force (BEF) in World War I, was responsible for one of the most significant military failures of leadership in modern history. His failure is, with remarkable parallels, playing out again on the American political stage at | Read More »

    The New York Times Hates Being in America

    The New York Times Hates Being in America

    Republicans look poised to pick up Congressional seats throughout America a week from today, so it is accordingly time for the New York Times to let its contempt for the portion of America that exists west of the Hudson to fly. The article, entitled “The Bumpkinification of the Midterm Elections” reads like an 800 word grievance against the idea that should have to apologize for | Read More »

    Put Kaci Hickox Back in a Tent

    The continuing carnival of the absurd with respect to nurse Kaci Hickox has continued today as Morning Joe reports (no video or other confirmation yet) that Hickox has announced that she will not abide by quarantine protocols upon her return to Maine, where she lives. Most of the media over the last 24 hours has focused on the predictable yet infuriating question of whether Chris | Read More »
