Obama decides to nix “tiny crowd” strategy for Charlotte

President Obama is really hoping he is as successful at drawing a big crowd next week, as he has been at drawing small ones all year. Let’s not forget, by the campaign’s own admission, smaller gatherings are apparently preferable to bigger ones. Two weeks ago, an Obama campaign official had this to…

last night in the Saturday Night Card Game, in which I suggested that Matthews’ hyperbolic, non-stop accusations of Republican racism were a marketing ploy to secure himself a coveted media niche. With the benefit of some hindsight, I think I was too kind in my analysis. I think Matthews is looking to provoke a…

Chris Matthews has gone farther and more aggressively than any other major television figure in the accusation that the Romney campaign and its supporters are using racism as a core campaign tool against Barack Obama. Everything has become racist to Matthews.  The use of the term “Chicago.”  Arguments over Obama weakening welfare-to-work requirements. Even when he…

Badger Pundit has put together this video interspersing parts of Clint Eastwood’s speech at the RNC with the advertisement that ran during halftime of the Super Bowl. I think it’s pretty effective.

Drudge and LI have something in common.  August 2012 was our best month ever in terms of traffic.  LI had 1,449,541 page views, Drudge had 943,281,513.
