RS Interview: Vernon Parker (R CAND, AZ-09).
Arizona’s Ninth District is a new one created because of redistricting, and it’s shaping up to be one of the interesting races* this cycle: not least of which is because the Democrat tapped for it is, well, nuts. I spoke with Vernon Parker – the non-crazy one – about the race: Vernon’s site is here. Moe Lane (crosspost) *Also possibly one of the nastier ones, | Read More »
RS Interview: Jeff Landry (R, R-CAND, LA-03).
This one is a little late, thanks to various annoying, yet dull, technical difficulties. The race in question is Louisiana’s Third District: the loss of a House seat in redistricting has caused two incumbent Republican Congressmen to face each other in this November’s… “Election Day primary” is probably the best way to describe it: everybody runs at once, and if no candidate gets above 50% | Read More »
New Heritage video: “Our Choice.”
Heritage has a new video up on school choice (short version: they like it, and so should you):
A look at the horrific, graphic Univision Fast & Furious excerpt.
The below is not the entire Univision Operation Fast & Furious expose: it’s merely about ten minutes of it. Ten very graphic, very infuriating, and very embarrassing ten minutes of it. Don’t watch it if you have a physical/mental problem with seeing people being murdered on-screen, and for real: (see also this ABC article) It’s a useful primer for what happened: which is to say, | Read More »
Washington Post recounts assassination of Ambassador Stevens.
You know, you read this Washington Post article on the assassination of Ambassador Stevens, and you keep telling yourself This movie is completely unbelievable. On the eve of his death, U.S. Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens was ebullient as he returned for the first time in his new role to Benghazi, the eastern Libyan city that embraced him as a savior during last year’s civil war. | Read More »
More details about tomorrow’s Univision expose of Operation Fast & Furious.
I’ve looked at that second paragraph three times and I don’t know which is the worst revelation. That the Obama administration enabled the murder of innocent children? That it indirectly participated in a targeted assassination of the family of a Mexican law enforcement official? That it’s going to be pointed out that the Obama administration was in full Ugly American mode when it came to the Mexican government? Or that our actions emboldened Mexican narco-terrorists to continue their destabilization campaign against our southern neighbor? Any one of those would be a scandal; taken collectively, and you have to wonder just how many more people have to die before Barack Obama and Eric Holder will take any kind of accountability for their actions.

Rep. Ed Perlmutter’s (D, CO-07) INCOMPETENT, xenophobic race-baiting.
Here’s a quick question: what do you see, when you see this picture? There are two answers. (Via Colorado Observer) If you’re a regular person, you see Eun Cha, war veteran, businessman, and naturalized citizen. This is one of those guys who we’re thinking about when we talk about the American Dream, and how it can transform people’s lives; Mr. Cha emigrated to this country | Read More »
Vernon Parker (R CAND, AZ-09) to deliver this week’s Republican Address.
The national party is kind of excited about this particular race and candidate: “This week brought more disappointing economic news, and more reminders that President Obama’s weak leadership and failed policies have hurt small businesses and driven jobs overseas,” House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) said. “We need principled leaders who will come to Congress and join Republicans in the fight to help create a better | Read More »
Tracking Ohio’s absentee ballot requests.
We[**] got a guy out there doing just that, and the link to his spreadsheet is here. Executive summary: the process is ongoing, and what’s being tracked are absentee/early ballot REQUESTS, not turned-in ballots. So it’s not telling us who’s ahead in Ohio; it’s merely telling us what we know of which party’s members are asking for ballots. In other words, it’s a possible measure | Read More »
Mia Love (R CAND, UT-04) targeted with vicious racist hate mail.
Come, let me reveal a deep, dark secret of the Mia Love campaign: she’s black. Did you care? Can’t say that I care much, either: what I care about is whether she has the resources and ability to defeat Jim Matheson in this year’s UT-04 Congressional race. The possibility is tantalizingly there: and apparently it’s worrying Utahn Democrats. Which is fine… except when Utahn Democrats | Read More »
Barack Obama takes a page from the Muslim Brotherhood.
You may have noticed a little while back that the US Embassy in Cairo called out the Egyptian government/Muslim Brotherhood for saying one thing in English (read: Western foreign consumption) and another in Arabic (read: domestic/regional consumption). Which is all to the good… so why did the President do the same thing this week? The View: “In an interview with ABC’s “The View,” Obama — | Read More »

Meet West Virginia Attorney General Darrell McGraw (D).
Say hi to the nice people of West Virginia, Attorney General – NO! NO! BAD TOUCH! BAD TOUCH! That’s a still from the YouTube video below, which shows Attorney General McGraw assaulting an opposition cameraman in that way that we have grown to associate with Democrats with entitlement issues: Apparently, McGraw is being kind of touchy that Republican challenger Patrick Morrisey keeps calling for debates; | Read More »

The “Mitt Romney and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad – and oh, right, tied in Gallup – Month” Weekend Open Thread.
As has been noted here and here… what an awful month Mitt Romney is having. Exhibit A: the Gallup tracking poll for September. Absolutely horrendous. Why, at this rate, Obama for America might even throw Mitt Romney into a… …A… …A briar patch. Open thread. Moe lane PS: The polls go up. The polls go down.
