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

Posted by  ▪  February 7, 2012
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

Posted by  ▪  February 6, 2012
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…

Santorum’s attack-free honeymoon may end soon

Posted by  ▪  February 6, 2012
Rick Santorum clearly is a social conservative, but not so clearly a fiscal conservative or smaller government conservative. One of Santorum’s selling points is how he has conducted himself this campaign season.  While he attacks hard, he has not gotten personal or rattled. We’ll see. Santorum did not have several million dollars in attack ads…

Things from weekend

Posted by  ▪  February 6, 2012
Just a few things you may want to take a look at: The Legal Insurrection Daily - new daily service. When did you decide to become politically active? And how have you been reacting to this election season? Another Pallywood hoax exposed, again.  It never stops. Santorum’s Big Government Problem.  A lot of people are jumping on…

Chrysler commercial, or Obama campaign ad?

Posted by  ▪  February 6, 2012
I didn’t watch the Halftime show yesterday, but I did notice Twitter light up like a Christmas Holiday tree, with shouts of Et tu Clint! Now I know why: It pretty much was an Obama commercial supporting the government bailout of Chrysler: Apparently the ad was pulled from YouTube and Chrysler’s own website based on an…

Nevada, finally

Posted by  ▪  February 6, 2012
Sometime late last night or early this morning Eastern time, the final results in Nevada were released. Romney came in with a 1% lower percentage of the vote than in 2008, but more significantly, both Romney’s actual number of votes and Republican participation in the caucuses was way down from 2008. Over 44,000…
