Obama’s new Ohio ad: just making stuff up at this point.
Let me present to you the amazing amount of scrutiny that apparently needs to go into a Barack Obama campaign ad, just to understand what it actually means. Level Minus One. This is the scrutiny that is done by the creators of the ad itself (that is to say, none at all). Summary of said ad (second video at this Hot Air link): this Brian | Read More »
Barack Obama’s bullying of “Coretta.” #pray4coretta
(via @adambaldwin) Scare quotes deliberate: for all I know, ‘Coretta’ is a composite of three or four African-American girls that President Barack Obama bullied as a kid. “I’m not her boyfriend!” I shouted. I ran up to Coretta and gave her a slight shove; she staggered back and looked up at me, but still said nothing. “Leave me alone!” I shouted again. And suddenly Coretta | Read More »
Politico’s Arresting, COMPLETELY UNSUPPORTED, claim about African-American voters.
(Via Hot Air) Specifically, North Carolinian voters on Tuesday’s Amendment One vote banning same-sex marriage: African-Americans voted 2-1 in favor of the North Carolina amendment banning gay marriage Tuesday, but the White House is betting that black voters there and beyond will stick with the president, despite broad resistance to legalization. …and that’s it. There’s no backup for that at all in the article. The | Read More »
The DOOM that came to Wisconsin Democrats.
Here are the final results of last night’s primary contest, and presumably a variant of this[***] will end up on Democratic political operatives’ desks across the breadth of Wisconsin: Barrett 390,109 Falk 228,940 Vinehout 26,926 La Follette 19,461 Huber 4,842 Total 670,278 Walker 626,538 Note that that total does not include the almost 20K of ‘Republican’ votes accumulated by ‘Republican’ Arthur Kohl-Riggs, given that the | Read More »
The (Currently) Embarrassing WI-GOV Recall Primary Results Thread.
I’m not really going to stay up and watch this one, but here’s a quick question spawned from the results thus far: With 10% of the vote in, why does the Republican who isn’t actually REALLY in a contested primary have more votes (78,370) than all of the Democrats in the contested primary combined (69,627)? [UPDATE: Well, now it’s 16%, and Walker is continuing to | Read More »
Mitt Romney and the ‘vision’ of #julia.
This is pretty much exactly what I want to hear coming out of Mitt Romney’s mouth when it comes to things like that ridiculous ‘Julia’ slideshow* from the Obama campaign. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=diAgNfgYkw4
Elizabeth Warren’s ancestor traced back to Trail of Tears! …On the side holding the guns.
Yeah, when’s that primary in Massachusetts, again? Because the general election is going to be a trip: …the most stunning discovery about the life of O.C. Sarah Smith Crawford is that her husband, Ms. Warren’s great-great-great grandfather, was apparently a member of the Tennessee Militia who rounded up Cherokees from their family homes in the Southeastern United States and herded them into government-built stockades in | Read More »
The Associated Press demonstrates professional ethics in terror bomb case.
…No, actually, the AP demonstrated professional ethics. Twice. The Associated Press reports today that it learned last week of a thwarted Al Qaeda-affiliated plot to bomb a U.S.-bound airplane, but did not report on it because of an agreement with the White House and the CIA. However, the AP did decide to report the story one day earlier than the White House had requested. “The | Read More »
Rep. Mike McIntyre (D, NC-07) refuses to endorse Barack Obama in public.
How bad is it for Democrats in North Carolina right now? This bad: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_embedded&v=9pTykLEl4F4 The gist of the video is as follows: When asked if he supported Obama, [Rep. Mike] Mcintyre told the reporter he wasn’t doing “political interviews” at a prayer breakfast because “it wouldn’t be appropriate.” But – as the video later notes – Rep. McIntyre will talk about how he’s for North | Read More »
The professional malpractice of the 2008 John McCain campaign team, revisited.
This Breitbart article about McCain’s 2008 campaign team is infuriating me far too much for me to write coherently about it for very long, so let me be brief: speaking professionally, I agree with it. The faction of Team McCain represented by Steve Schmidt and Nicolle Wallace should not be allowed anywhere NEAR a Republican Presidential campaign for the rest of their lives. And I | Read More »

The New York Times prepares its readers for the loss of Ohio.
It’s all because of racism, of course: But the main quarrels Democratic voters [in Jefferson County, Ohio] have with Mr. Obama have nothing to do with race. They include his rejection of one proposed route for the Keystone pipeline, a stance they say will harm this area, whose backbone, the Ohio River, is lined with metal mills and coal mines. Oh, I’m sorry, but that | Read More »
The ‘Obama launches his campaign on Marx’s Birthday’ Obligatory Open Thread.
As somebody commented privately, Obama’s just trying to mess with our heads now. Oh, sure, the man’s going to pretend that starting his campaign on May 5th is to honor Cinco de Mayo, but nope: it’s all about the Commies. But that’s OK: we here at the People’s Glorious RedState Revolutionary Collective can mess with heads, too.
So, is Obama’s ‘composite girlfriend’ like a Hot Canadian Girlfriend?
Not that I actually ever ‘had’ one of those – what’s that? Oh, it’s a nerd thing. You’ll get guys claiming that they’re going out with this girl that they met online, only she lives in Canada so it’ll be a while until you meet her. I do not judge: that could have been me. So I mostly just find this entertaining (that explicitly includes | Read More »
Wow. Chris Matthews viciously attacked Barack Obama’s Afghanistan speech!
…Mind you, Chris Matthews thinks that he’s complimenting the President by comparing him to William Shakespeare’s Henry V. The context is the President’s not-a-naked-campaign-ploy-at-all visit and speech in Afghanistan yesterday, and it predictably caused Chris Matthews to start up with the sycophancy. Precise quote? “It was right out of Henry V actually, a touch of Barry, in this case, in the night for those soldiers | Read More »
