Romney tells us who he fears, launches attack ad against Newt in Ohio

Posted by  ▪  February 8, 2012
Romney does not appear to be falling for the second political death (or is it third?) of Newt, because his SuperPAC still is going negative against Newt. Perhaps his team knows, based on internal polling, that for all of Santorum’s caucus wins and next best thing hoopla, Newt remains the greatest threat in big ticket…

Widener Law settles with Prof. Lawrence Connell

Posted by  ▪  February 8, 2012
I have posted numerous times before about the case of Lawrence Connell, the Widener Law School Professor who was placed on one-year unpaid leave and forced to undergo a psychiatric examination as a condition of return. The sanctions imposed by Dean Linda Ammons were so controversial that a high profile alumnus and…

I’m beginning to like The Legal Insurrection Daily, which automatically pulls blog and news items based on my Twitter feed and those I follow on Twitter. The LI Daily pulls stories I sometimes have not noticed, like this one from the Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, recalling the 10th Anniversary of the…

Romney’s carpet bombing coming home to roost

Posted by  ▪  February 8, 2012
So what did last night mean? Rick Santorum won the two non-binding caucuses where all candidates competed, and the Missouri non-binding primary where Newt was not on the ballot. Does it mean that the Republican electorate all of the sudden has fallen in love with Santorum?  That remains to be seen.  Santorum has…

Made for each other

Thanks to reader Bryan from Tennessee, who writes: Love your blog – frequent part of my daily reading. Saw this while walking through beautiful Lexington, VA, when visiting Washington & Lee University last fall. Seems more and more accurate each day! Keep up the great work.

MO-MN-CO

Posted by  ▪  February 7, 2012
Endgame quick analysis: Great night for Santorum. Now he has to show he can win with Newt also in the field and when Romney cares enough to spend money and attack. Horrible night for Romney. Another hole in the bubble of electability, and the new narrative (which I have been saying for…

Pre-whatever whatever

Some more things before the late night returns from the Minnesota and Colorado caucuses and the Missouri primary: ShePAC – a SuperPAC for conservative female candidates.  (h/t TexasGrizzlette)  When do middle aged male bloggers who are as good once as they ever were get a SuperPAC? Israeli hackers take down Hamas website. Adolf Hitler wants…

Racist “yellowgirl” html code?

Posted by  ▪  February 7, 2012
This could not wait for Saturday Night, because it is just way too bizarre an attempt to turn nothing into a charge of racism. Short background:  Pete Hoekstra, running for Senate from Michigan against Debbie Stabenow, ran a commercial in Michigan during the Super Bowl about jobs being shipped to China, and…

9th Circuit holds Prop. 8 violates 14th Amendment

Posted by  ▪  February 7, 2012
More to follow. The decision is embedded below. The Court essentially used a bootstrap argument — that since there was a prior right to samesex marriage (based on a California Supreme Court decision which gave rise to Prop. 8 ) — the taking away of that right without justification violated the 14th…

Bob Kerrey will not run for Senate

Posted by  ▪  February 7, 2012
As you know, Ben Nelson decided not to run for reelection in Nebraska.  His Cornhusker Kickback weighed too heavily on his reelection prospects. The great Democratic hope was that former Senator Bob Kerrey would run for the seat. But it is not to be, as reported at The Fix: Former senator Bob Kerrey told The Fix…

Off topic

Posted by  ▪  February 7, 2012
Today there are caucuses in Colorado and Minnesota, and a non-delegate/non-binding election in Missouri in which Newt is not on the ballot. Can we all agree that caucuses stink and should be done away with? I’ll post some links as the day goes on, and maybe update tonight. Girls as young as 13 have…

Fake fake fake fake

Fake: Real: Fake fake fake fake, but a real problem, don’t you think?  People still think Sarah Palin said she could see Russia from her backyard. Elsewhere: Happy Birthday, Mr. President. Who Castrated Ann Coulter? Well, he does have a nice healthy smile. Why is this racist?  Who should they have used in an ad about jobs going…
