RedState Gathering: Chauncey Goss (R CAND, FL-19 PRI).
This is going to be a Day of Florida: I got a lot of these to chew through and the primary’s next week. Here’s Chauncey Goss, who is running for FL-19: Chauncey’s site is here. Moe Lane (crosspost)
“Obama That I Used To Know.”
I want you to watch this video (via The Blaze, via AoSHQ Headlines)… (for those without video: it’s a dang good political parody of Gotye’s Somebody That I Used To Know*)
RedState Gathering: Gov. Bobby Jindal (R, LA).
We’re always happy to hear from Gov. Bobby Jindal, and after the speech that he gave last Saturday* (as I noted at the time, you could see the crowd collectively thinking Why, Bobby here would make a perfectly good Vice President) he took a few moments to talk to me about… you know. Stuff**. Moe Lane (crosspost)
Collusion between Obama for America and Priorities USA on ‘their’ lying Soptic ads.
The Story So Far: two days ago, the Obama administration – using the fig-leaf/cutout of Super PAC Priorities USA – accused Mitt Romney of being a murderer because a company that Romney used to own closed down a steel mill (several years after Romney left that company) and that meant that the wife of the husband who lost his job at that steel mill (one | Read More »

RS Interview: Steve Oelrich (R CAND, FL-03 PRI)
This is a slightly complicated one: I have two different interviews for the FL-03 GOP primary, and I don’t want to appear to play favorites, so I’m just going to do them both and let the readers decide. This one is of state Senator Steve Oelrich, who represents most of the new district in the state legislature. His campaign site is here. Moe Lane (crosspost)
RS Interview: Rep. Cliff Stearns (R CAND, FL-03 PRI).
This is a slightly complicated one: I have two different interviews for the FL-03 GOP primary, and I don’t want to appear to play favorites, so I’m just going to do them both and let the readers decide. This one is of Rep. Cliff Stearns, who has switched over from the old FL-06 district to run in the new FL-03. His campaign site is here. | Read More »
Let us not say “Au Revoir,” Russ Carnahan.
Let us instead say,”Good-bye.” The local CBS affiliate called Missouri’s First District Democratic primary race for William Lacy Clay, and I don’t think anybody can really dispute it. Which is a tragedy, for it means that I can no longer use this photo: As God is my witness, this is not a Photoshop. Open thread for election results. Moe Lane
@TheOnion: using dead Sikhs as political props.
Short version: Twitchy caught the typically unhinged Online Leftist reaction to the Onion’s… smear? No, they’ll claim that it’s a parody. Parody smear, I guess… article where they (falsely) had Michele Bachmann say that she was thankful that no “Americans” were killed in Sunday’s Oak Creek shooting. Now, I know, I know: comedy is edgy, it’s not the Onion’s fault that the Left side of | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Reince Priebus, Sharon Day.
A couple of videos, bundled together: we had both RNC Co-chair Sharon Day and RNC Chair Reince Priebus speaking at the RedState Gathering. Both took a moment to speak to me later: Sharon Day Reince Priebus By the way: I am not claiming that Reince was energized enough by the RedState Gathering to go out the next day to the Sunday morning talk shows and | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Rep. Sandy Adams (R CAND, FL-07 PRI)
There are going to be a bunch of Florida interviews this week; as noted before, Florida’s primary is going on even as we speak. And one person I spoke to was Rep. Sandy Adams, who is now in a primary with Rep. John Mica; we touched base after her speech to talk a little about the Gathering, and whatnot. Rep. Adams’ site is here. Moe | Read More »
RedState Gathering: Karen Harrington (R CAND, FL-23 PRI).
There are a bunch of these, particularly of Florida-specific content: early voting has started in the primary, which means that the election is going on right now. Accordingly… Karen Harrington is running to get the right to challenge Debbie Wasserman Schultz in the general election for FL-23. I touched base with her at the Gathering about that: Karen Harrington’s site is here. Moe Lane (crosspost) | Read More »
Harry Reid, pederasty, and the sudden defense of Rick Santorum.
[UPDATE: Random politeness requests that I note that Ethics Alarms has splutteringly responded to me. Random professional pride suggests that I note that my "let's add an 'as-near-as-I-can-tell' to that one" impulse did what it had to do: which is to say, handily avoid the need for a potentially embarrassing correction. Random schadenfreude more or less demands that I cheerfully note that my larger message | Read More »
“Whose side are you on?”
I laughed like a loon when I finally figured out what was tickling me about this – quite good – RNC print ad (H/T Jim Geraghty): I knew that they had gotten a line in that from somewhere, but I couldn’t remember where. And then it hit me: Pete Seeger.
Texas Runoff Elections Open Thread.
Sorry, got caught up in something. Results here: I understand that at this point that’s mostly early voting. Might be a long night. [UPDATE] That would be ‘long’ by ‘Scott Walker recall election’ standards, of course: AP called it for Ted Cruz. Hey, you know that the next Senator from the great state of Texas is going to be at the RedState Gathering, right?
Brilliant, Ohio coal plant mine[*] closes: guess why?
Well, your ability to guess why the Murray Energy Corporation today announced that it is closing a mine in Brilliant, Ohio will be largely dependent on whether you rely on local news or not. If you’re just paying attention to local news… you won’t be told at all why a coal mine that employed 239 people at its peak laid off 24 of its remaining 56 | Read More »
