While it isn’t a new strategy, it seems as if the left has recently been ratcheting up its utilization of the stonewalling tactic when confronted by high profile controversy. Elizabeth Warren, who continues to show no signs of ever engaging in an honest discussion with the public about her bogus claims to…

Results are trickling in. I’m having trouble finding any webpages with official results as of this moment, but the Twittersphere has reported that Elizabeth Warren received 95.77% of the vote. If this is confirmed, Warren will have successfully secured the Democratic nomination and won’t be forced into a primary battle. Official results…

Ann Althouse (via Instapundit) has a post about a mailer she received from a pro-Recall group in Wisconsin telling her which of her neighbors voted and which did not in the past several years.  Althouse’s reaction: This is an effort to shame and pressure people about voting, and it is truly despicable. Your vote…

That was the theme I saw developing with much of the early coverage when it was announced that Justin Combs, son of music mogul P.Diddy, earned a $54,000 athletic scholarship to attend UCLA in the fall.

A new poll shows trouble for Elizabeth Warren, but not if you just read The Boston Globe’s headline:  Scott Brown, Elizabeth Warren neck and neck in new poll.

It surfaced today that Mahlon Mitchell, the democratic challenger to Wisconsin’s Lt. Governor Rebecca Kleefisch, admitted on camera that he only got involved in politics in 2008–and it’s questionable if he even voted at that time.
