David Cicilline (RI-01) — is he finally out of tricks?

Posted by

David Cicilline, my current Congressman and former Mayor of Providence, has been a frequent topic here for the past two years, ever since he stole the 2010 congressional race by covering up and being “untruthful” (the Providence Journal’s word) about the dismal state of Providence’s finances. Last week I posted an internal…

Only a few more days of stonewalling and hurt feelings, and Obama may get away with it. If he’s re-elected, it’s too late to matter.  If he’s not re-elected, it’s too late to matter. Maybe this is a sign Benghazi is permeating the popular consciousness in time, via JWF, Uh Oh: Jay Leno Brings…

I had not followed the notorious case of the notorious @comfortablysmug who apparently tweeted all sorts of false Sandy information until I saw a large chunk of Memeorandum devoted to the subject. The villain was outed by a writer at Buzzfeed, Jack Stuef, The Man Behind @ComfortablySmug, Hurricane Sandy’s Worst Twitter Villain: During the…

Our president did not make a turn to the right or even toward the center when he decided he wanted to remain in the White House another four years.  He ran as the leftist that he’s always been. So what do we make of his comments about cleaning up after Hurricane Sandy? “Do…

The video below (h/t Hot Air) is getting a lot of exposure. It presents, in 16 seconds, religious freedom analogies. But it will make no impact with the Sandra Flukes of the world, who view free birth control as a human right. Someone has to be forced to buy it for them. And…

Mia Love is in a tight race in Utah-04 against Democratic incumbent Jim Matheson. While recent polling had Love slightly ahead, the race is expected to be close. As a Democrat in a majority Republican district, Matheson tries to keep quiet about his support of Obama.  Matheson needs a lot of voters to…

In the past two days two wildly differing polls have been released, one showing Scott Brown up 2, the other showing Elizabeth Warren up by 7. Polling from last week showed Warren ahead by 5. AP via Boston Globe reports: A new poll is giving an edge to Democratic challenger Elizabeth Warren in…

Obama wants to create a Department of Business in his second term. So what might an Obama Business District look like? From a reader: After a day of fun and frolic in St. Louis we drove back to Illinois to discover East St. Louis has renamed its BUSINESS DISTRICT Barack Obama Avenue. Will get…

Obama won Oregon in 2008 by 16 points. This year his lead is down to just 6 points, per The Oregonian: President Barack Obama holds a relatively narrow lead of six points over Republican challenger Mitt Romney in Oregon, according to a new poll conducted for The Oregonian.

Just when you thought it could not get any worse. MoveOn.org and Michael Moore have produced a video which is beyond description. Can we just declare MoveOn a mental illness so it can be covered (under Obamacare, of course). Video (h/t NRO)  NSFW (language warning): Makes the creepy singing children and Lena Dunham seem…

This was all so predictable. The water has not yet receded in much of the storm damaged region, yet the big government straw man arguments survived and are flourishing. On CBS this morning a correspondent (don’t remember his name) was asked by one of the anchors what the storm means in terms of…

I have no implicit pro- or anti-Nate Silver bias.  He was a journolist and in 2008 got some secret help with his predictions from the Obama campaign, but since joining The NY Times I think he has raised his game. I find the whole focus on Silver and his presidential election “model” to be…
