Say Goodbye to Tea Party Network News

Posted by  ▪  November 2, 2012
Tea Party Network News just launched yesterday. A reader alerted me to it, and while I wasn’t thrilled with the layout or design, I was hopeful it would be a valuable resource.  When it linked to one of my posts, well so much the better.  I added it to the blogroll. Now it’s…

A poll was released yesterday by the Howey Politics website in Indiana purporting to show Democrat Joe Donnelly up by 11 points over Richard Mourdock. That seemed improbable, even with the controversy over Mourdock’s recent comments, as Indiana is a heavily Republican-voting state, will vote strongly for Romney, and all other polling…

Everything you need to know about Rhode Island in one photo

David Cicilline, the former Mayor of Providence who was “untruthful” about Providence’s finances during his successful 2010 congressional campaign, is in trouble.  The electoral momentum has shifted clearly to Republican Brendan Doherty, who has attacked Cicilline’s character relentlessly and successfully.

Our numbers guys can beat up your numbers guys

Posted by  ▪  November 2, 2012
I have received a good reaction to my post, If Nate Silver cannot be wrong, how can he be right?, in which I call non-statistical BS to Nate Silvermania.
