by Chris Christie.  We need to focus on getting out the vote big time.  Sandy has been the perfect political storm for Obama.  It’s like calling three consecutive time outs before we were about to kick the winning field goal. We care about New Jersey and the election. The notion that there is…

and I am outraged. Spotted this bumper sticker in the Wegmans parking lot in Ithaca. I think you can guess what the other bumper sticker on the car was.

Once again, we hear via Cong. Jesse Jackson Jr’s wife Sandi that the AWOL representative from Illinois under investigation by the House Ethics Committee will remain in treatment even as the election approaches. According to his wife, Jackson will continue to stay at the Mayo Clinic, where he returned last week for…

The countdown continues with 6 days to go. Today’s first Empty Chair photo comes to us from Joy in Michigan who writes, “I figured as long as I was…

The death of polling industry credibility

The polling this year is insane.  Same state, same time period, wildly different results from poll to poll. Rasmussen has Romney up 2 in Wisconsin; Marquette has Obama up 8. The Boston Globe (UNH Polling) has Scott Brown up 2; Suffolk has Elizabeth Warren up 7. And so on, and so…

The United States is 13 percent black. The NBA is 75 percent black. But this year, the NBA’s Minnesota Timberwolves are “only” 30 percent black. Obviously, this is a civil-rights issue. Tyrone Terrell, chairman of St. Paul’s African American leadership council, told the Star-Tribune that he thinks the unbalanced roster could be seen…

More signage of the times. From Chris in Wisconsin: From Linda in Tennessee: Our neighbor a mile down the road posted this yard sign. I would caption it: “It’s your Choice!”. When I stopped, introduced myself and asked for permission to photo it, the owner told me he needed a text sign, saying “Gone Golfing,…

What is Chris Christie up to? It’s one thing to acknowledge federal help, or that Obama was attentive (it is the week before the election, after all), but Christie is acting like a love-struck teenager, in other words, like America circa 2008. As tempting as it is to lash out at Christie, understand…

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…
