Tea Party’s Joe Walsh (R-IL) giving Duckworth a run for the money

There’s an extremely competitive race going on in the IL-8 congressional district; it’s just the Democrats don’t want anyone to find out. This is the race between Tea Party stalwart Congressman Joe Walsh and the DNC darling Tammy Duckworth. Walsh made headlines in 2010 for his well-fought win where he defeated three-term incumbent…

for splitting the vote between Eric Hovde and Mark Neumann, allowing Thompson to win the primary with under 40% of the vote. I have a bad feeling about this, via Althouse: Thompson was up 9 points in the polls a month ago, and now he’s down 9 points. It’s useless to fret about whether the Marquette…

CAIR Package Accidentally Contains the Truth

Posted by

I found myself wondering why the Council on American-Islamic Relations had been so quiet since the 9/11/ attacks in Libya and two dozen other Islamic countries. Since the original 9/11 massacre, every time a Muslim shouts “allahu akhbar” while slaughtering innocents—or is prevented by undercover operations from doing so—CAIR has worried publicly…

The Washington Examiner has an in-depth series doing the work the legacy media refuses to do, The Obama You Don’t Know. Here is an excerpt from the Introduction: In an effort to get a clearer picture of Obama — his shaping influences, his core beliefs, his political ambitions and his accomplishments — The…

Tales of the tapes

Posted by

Obama attended an anti-Israel conference with Rashid Khalidi.  The L.A. Times will not release the video. Obama was caught on an open mic calling federal employees “slugs.”  CBS News will not release the tape. Obama was caught on an open mic promising the Russians to be more flexible if re-elected, and CBS describes the controversy as mere “presidential…

Libya, Land of Opportunity

Nothing to see here, move along. The head of the U.S. National Counter-Terrorism Center told lawmakers on Wednesday that the deadly attack on Sept. 11 that claimed the lives of the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three aides was a “terrorist” strike. But the official, Matt Olsen, said evidence so far suggests it…

What used to be called hope and change. From reader Perry in Rome, NY: …in Price Chopper parking lot. Another one on the other side of the license plate was right side up, but I like the upside down one better.

New poll shows Scott Brown in lead

Posted by
9/19/2012 at 10:13pm
There have been several polls released recently, showing everything from a virtual dead heat to Elizabeth Warren ahead by low single digits. This was a contrast to pre-DNC polls, which showed Brown ahead by low single digits.  Clearly Warren received a convention bounce, almost entirely from increased support from Democrats. Warren supporters in the…

You do realize that there actualy are some Patriotic Millionaires, don’t you? Guys like Warren Buffet and others who insist that people pay higher taxes, but don’t take the chance to pay voluntarily. Like this guy, who turned out to be a plant by a group called the Patriotic Millionaires for Fiscal Strength,…

In case you have not heard, the Obama campaign started another stupid Twitter hashtag #ForAll. Twitchy has the backstory, and The Right Scoop picked up on this hideously creepy image tweeted by Obama campaign manager Jim Messina” It has sparked a wave of photoshopping as well as Quickmemes.

Alderman Joe Moreno has relented and said he now will allow Chick-fil-A to open in his Chicago ward. Earlier this summer, Moreno had attempted to block the company after decrying president Dan Cathy’s comments in support of traditional marriage. According to Moreno, he’s giving in because Chick-fil-A has now released a memo…

From The Shark Tank, a video of what happened when Karen Harrington, who is challenging DWS, showed up at one of DWS’s meetings. The DWS cameraman gave Harrington a talking to, including the statement: “We love Debbie Wasserman Schultz here, we would die for Debbie Wasserman Schultz.” Although Harrington is not on our Operation…

Holy !!! Maine Senate race in play for Republicans

Posted by
9/19/2012 at 1:33pm
I’ve noted before that Maine may not be lost to Republicans after Olympia Snowe’s retirement, as “Independent” former Governor Angus King was showing signs of having no clothes, metaphorically speaking of course.  Maybe a glass jaw would be more appropriate. A relatively small dose negative advertising took a toll on King last month, as…

Remember “Freedom Fries”?  Over the last decade, the French were ridiculed by millions of Americans—including me—who didn’t have to wonder how Henry V prevailed at Agincourt with a much smaller force or why trees line the Champs Elysees (so the Germans can march in shade). But today, you gotta hand it to…

Posted by

When originally presented by David Corn of Mother Jones, there was no disclosure that part of Mitt Romney’s controversial answer about 47% of voters was missing from the tape. Since only an edited version originally was presented, there was no way to know if something was missing.  After all, it was edited, so…

Apologies to Wikipedia: Whereas the reign of Marcus Aurelius George W. Bush had been marked by almost continuous warfare, that of Commodus Obama was comparatively peaceful in the military sense but was marked by political strife and the increasingly arbitrary and capricious behaviour of the emperor president himself. In the view of…
