I think the Richard Mourdock campaign finally has hit on a theme which needs repeating.

Richard Lugar is running a desperate campaign, trying to distract from his record and to conjure up bizarre claims against Mourdock, such as the “Confederate Tie,” and false and misleading claims about Mourdock’s record.

Bringing out Mitch Daniels...

I’m not jumping on the anti-Orrin Hatch bandwagon, and not making his primary race part of Operation Counterweight.

Orrin Hatch is no Dick Lugar.

Mia B. Love won a historic nomination at the Utah Republican convention on Saturday to run for Congress in the newly-created 4th Congressional District.

Love was the first black woman elected mayor in Utah’s history, is the first black woman nominated for Congress in Utah, and if elected to Congress, would be the first black Republican congresswoman. ...

Who would you think won and who lost the election?

Really, try it.

The Republican establishment, in the form of Mitch Daniels,  John McCain and a SuperPAC, is trying to rescue Dick Lugar with ads in the run up to the May 8 primary challenge from Richard Mourdock,

The just-released Daniels’ ad is embedded below, and contains the money line:

I have written quite a bit about the challenge by Richard Mourdock to Obama’s Favorite Republican, Richard Lugar.

But one subject I haven’t touched upon was Mourdock’s valiant effort, against great political odds, to stand up for private bondholders against the Obama-enforced bailout of Chrysler.

With barely two weeks until the primary, if...

New reader Kathy just sent me the motherload of bumper sticker photos.

She’s been taking photos for over two years. Here is the first of them taken in High Springs, FL, with her message:

I came across you web site and have been enjoying the bumper stickers posted. I thought you might enjoy a few that I have collected along the way (I will be sending a couple different emails with pics):

Just minutes ago, Mia B. Love won the Utah-04 nomination at the Utah Republican Convention.  Love received 70.5% of the vote on the second ballot, defeating Carl Wimmer who received 29.5.

The result is a shock except to those of us in the blogosphere who have been following Love.

Just three months ago Love...

Did you hear the latest in racial politics.

Mitt Romney used the “n” word.  Not the “N” word, the “n” word as in “isn‘t working.”

Romney has a website devoted to the slogan:

And has it hanging up behind him during speeches:

And that has Tommy Christopher of Mediaite seeing things:

One of the many enduring myths and legends of the Obama 2008 victory is that Obama’s record-breaking fundraising came from small donors.  Perpetuating the false impression that small donors are Obama’s base is a priority of the Obama campaign, which now focuses on running low cost ($5, $3) dinner raffles to run up the number of...

From reader J:

I work on the north side of Milwaukee, WI. I was behind this car on my way home from work last night. I think it says it all…

The uber liberals never cease to amaze me with their transparency.

I’ll keep my eyes open for more gems. It’s an incredible (and scary) place to live right now! More out-of-state license plates than I’ve seen in my 10 years here. I wish the unions could be exposed for the thugs that they are.
