Parking in a university lot with an anti-Obama bumper sticker. From a reader on staff at Cornell: I don’t remember seeing this bumper sticker on your site. The photo was taken in the parking lot of Cornell’s parking office.
 

(Democratic Party) Agitators to disrupt RNC

Posted by  ▪  August 23, 2012
How would the media react if we did this to the DNC? Via The Hill: Bucking protocol, President Obama and the Democrats are planning a full-scale assault on Republicans next week during their convention. Presidential candidates have traditionally kept a low profile during their opponent’s nominating celebration, but Democrats are throwing those rules out…

Why aren’t we running as hard on Dems support for Occupy as they are on Akin?

Posted by  ▪  August 23, 2012
Why aren’t we running hard on the Democrats support for the Occupy movement?  At least as hard as they are running on Todd Akin? One person is, Karen Harrington running against Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (via The Shark Tank): The material is there, just waiting for a video editor:
 

Dems would rather risk being seen as celebrating death than talk about the economy

AbortionFest 2012 to be held in Charlotte on Sept 3-7

I don’t often mention the dispute over abortion. There is something sickening over the Democratic National Convention turning into an abortion-fest, a celebration of the right to kill one’s own unborn child.  It may be a right, but it’s a curious right on which to orchestrate a national convention. The DNC is turning into…

McCaskill up 10 pts in non-troll poll

Posted by  ▪  August 23, 2012
PPP’s flash poll the night before Todd Akin’s initial deadline to withdraw showed Akin still ahead by a point.  I called it a troll poll which would encourage Akin not to withdraw. And so it did, Akin cited the poll in interviews justifying his decision not to withdraw, even as others pointed…

Elizabeth Warren new campaign theme based on doctored video

Misleading 7-second video clip cuts Brown off mid-sentence

Elizabeth Warren is down in the latest poll, so it seems she has decided to double-down on the war on women theme, running radio ads complaining about Todd Akin and national Republicans. As part of this new theme, Warren also has launched a campaign theme called “Stop Talking” based on Scott Brown…

Teachers Union releases hit piece video against director of Hating Breitbart

Posted by  ▪  August 22, 2012
You would think the Chicago Teachers Union has too much going on right now to wage a personal campaign against a local filmmaker. School starts September 4, and CTU is about to authorize a strike after having been embroiled in a contract standoff with Mayor Rahm Emanuel. And they’ve been busy deploying…

Dem candidate accuses Dem David Cicilline (RI-01) of voter fraud

Posted by  ▪  August 22, 2012
Little would surprise me when it comes to former Providence Mayor and since 2010 congressman David Cicilline. But massive voter fraud? That’s what Cicilline’s Democratic primary challenger Anthony Gemma alleged at a press conference today.  Via The Providence Journal: Congressional candidate Anthony Gemma alleged Wednesday that a private investigation has uncovered voter fraud linked…

A good swarm

Posted by  ▪  August 22, 2012
The RNC and other groups have been coming out with some pretty effective ads. Given the likely money advantage in the last 60 days, these ads should swarm the television stations in swing states. Call it a good swarm. (video h/t Marathon Pundit)

From rape card to race card

Posted by  ▪  August 22, 2012
Breathe a sigh of relief, the left is back to sifting for ways to attack Paul Ryan. It seems like they may have hit the bottom of the bucket, no doubt worried after the oppo (“cure for insomnia”) file that was released revealed how little they have against the congressman from Wisconsin….

Beyond Missouri — Dan Bongino in Maryland gaining endorsements and momentum

Posted by  ▪  August 22, 2012

Time to focus on places other than Missouri — Dan Bongino would be a good place to start

In late June, I wrote about the importance of putting Maryland conservative Dan Bongino in the U.S. Senate this November. Last week, he was officially added to the Operation Counterweight final list.  You can donate here. While Bongino’s race against incumbent Democrat Ben Cardin has received brief glances of national attention along…

Obama gets an ‘A’ for effort

It will take more than 4 years for the full effects of Obamanomics to be achieved.  But not for lack of trying. From reader Rod: Took this picture while driving with friends through Temple, Tx.
 

Snap out of your funk, damn it

Posted by  ▪  August 21, 2012
Not a great day. Someone I know, an indefatigable blogger, decided to go to bed early. Don’t focus on the bad.  Think about the great candidates we have like Mia B. Love, who just rolled out this video: Remember Operation Counterweight. Do I have to come over and slap you?
 

Hannity, Akin, what now?

Posted by  ▪  August 21, 2012
Sean Hannity’s interview of Todd Akin this afternoon was very uncomfortable and unsettling. Hannity pressed Akin just about every way he could, but he and Akin were ships passing in the night. (Partial transcripts here and here) Notice at 19:00 of the audio when Akin refers to the PPP (troll) poll showing him up by…
