So, if you’ve been watching the Nikki Haley smear attempts…
…and you are absolutely sick and tired of the way that self-appointed ‘elites’ will stop at nothing in order to keep secure their place at the twin troughs of power and money; if you are appalled that in 2010 – 2010 – a politician from any party would think that his petty privileges are worth smearing the public reputation of not only his constituents, but | Read More »
Meet Scott Walker (R CAND, WI-GOV).
Scott’s got a longer primary than most (September), so he was able to talk with Redstate for a bit on the race, the likely Democratic nominee (apparently, the White House cleared out primary opposition to this race, too), and why the Democratic governor of Wisconsin isn’t the Democratic nominee. His website is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
The White House *has* been stumbling, Politico.
Well, this is rich. In the process of complaining about how the White House seems to be a combination of Mayor Daley and Barney Fife – no, really, that’s explicitly the two figures that they used – Politico reports: One senior House Democrat said it is baffling “how one group of people can be so good at campaigning and so bad at politics” — a | Read More »
Braver than *me*, probably.
Hey, weird historical fact: did you know that there was a time in history when the term ‘Jewish’ actually had connotations of cowardice attached to it? No, really! There was this entire bizarre stereotype where Jews were supposedly fearful and unwilling to confront those who opposed them. Unlike, you know, this kid, who calmly walked into a crowd of screaming California leftists while waving an | Read More »
Nikki Haley guts Andre Bauer on live television.
Get yourself a glass of something nice, first. This is from a candidate forum from earlier in the evening, where Nikki Haley redresses one week’s worth of filthy innuendos in roughly five minutes, at the expense of Lt. Gov Andre Bauer. You should watch the entire thing… See also Hot Air and Ace of Spades. [And here's some useful AmSpec background.] [And check out the | Read More »
State of the Race: Steve Poizner (R CAND, CA-GOV).

Hi, Larry Marchant! [UPDATED]
[UPDATE] Prove it, Larry. And no looking at Willy Folks’ test paper, either. Bye, Larry Marchant! [South Carolinian] Republican gubernatorial hopeful Andre Bauer said today he has asked for and received the resignation of a political consultant for “inappropriate conduct” but would say little more. Lt. Gov. Bauer announced that adviser Larry Marchant gave him his resignation at noon today. (Via CCP Blog) Funny how | Read More »
Does the White House WANT us to keep talking about Sestak?
Because they keep bringing it to the forefront. Let me set the scene for this: it turns out that the job offer that Bill Clinton had supposedly offered Joe Sestak was in fact a job offer that Sestak could not take and still keep his House seat. This is important, because Sestak being able to keep his House seat is kind of critical for somebody | Read More »
BP/Obama Karma Watch: June 2, 2010.
(Via Drudge) The saw is stuck. The risky effort to contain the nation’s worst oil spill hit a snag Wednesday when a diamond-edged saw became stuck in a thick pipe on a blown-out well at the bottom of the Gulf of Mexico. Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen said the goal was to free the saw and finish the cut later in the day. This is | Read More »
AL/MS/NM primary results thread.
Alabama results here. Mississippi results here. New Mexico results here. [UPDATE] proudgop in comments below notes that Politico is more up to date.
State of the Race: John Boozman (R CAND, AR-SEN).
John has won his primary; he’s now stuck waiting anyway to see which Democrat will be the sacrificial lamb in the general, so he took a few minutes to talk with RedState. John’s site is here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
State of the Race: Mike Lee (R CAND, UT-SEN).
The UT GOP primary’s in three weeks: Mike’s one of the candidates who made it past the convention. He checked in with us today to keep us apprised of what was going on. Mike’s site is here . Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane .
Obamacare revisited: Sir Donald’s Medicare czar nomination fight.
Sounds like a fun way to spend the summer, doesn’t it? President Barack Obama spent the last year insisting he doesn’t want to turn the American health care system into a carbon copy of the government-run British system. But Obama’s pick to run Medicaid and Medicare — Donald Berwick — is a pediatrician and Harvard University professor with a self-professed “love” of the British system. | Read More »
The Breakdown of Montgomery[*] County.
The Washington Post can be amusing, sometimes. In this article (via Instapundit) they provide a comparison of two counties – Montgomery County in Maryland, and Fairfax County in Virginia – to the former’s distinct disadvantage. The short version: Montgomery County is stuck with an elected Democratic leadership that is beholden to public sector unions*, spends in a fashion that insults drunken sailors, and… actually, those | Read More »
Meet Elizabeth Emken (R CAND, CA-11).
The district is listed as competitive by Cook (R+1, Leans Democratic) and is one of the districts threatened by the infamous delta smelt. Elizabeth recently also made a Daily Beast list of 11 GOP women candidates to watch. Elizabeth’s site can be found here. Moe Lane Crossposted to Moe Lane.
