Is it me, or does it seem like we are getting plenty of anti-Obama bumper stickers spotted on vehicles in hostile territory? I’m seeing more in Ithaca than ever before. From friend of the blog Jenny from Vegas: @leginsurrection I love this one. I snapped this in Newport Beach, California… twitpic.com/an45vf— Jenny (@Jenny_IDLYITW) August…

No, that’s not a typo or some psychological slip. It’s what I believe to reflect a sea change in how people view the Scott Brown – Elizabeth Warren match-up. Earlier this week PPP released a poll showing Brown ahead by 5 points, and people were stunned particularly on the left. For the first time…

Oooooh, Mitt Romney made a joke about his own birth certificate, and the MSM and nutroots go wild! Ben Howe at Redstate has the details and video: Some politicos are upset about a joke that Mitt Romney made today at President Obama’s expense. Romney: “I love being home, where but the both of us…

Although the Operation Counterweight list has been finalized, a race we are focusing on out of Georgia still has not produced a Republican candidate. On August 21st, a runoff election was held to decide who the Republicans would put forward to take on the very vulnerable incumbent Democrat, John Barrow in what…

Elizabeth Warren did not Google “China commodity prices collapse”

Posted by

Elizabeth Warren famously wants us to be more like China and devote even greater percentages of our GDP to infrastructure construction. Warren is making this push despite the fact that we already spend huge sums on infrastructure, we just don’t do it very efficiently as state and local governments have proven to…

How would the media react if we did this to the DNC? Via The Hill: Bucking protocol, President Obama and the Democrats are planning a full-scale assault on Republicans next week during their convention. Presidential candidates have traditionally kept a low profile during their opponent’s nominating celebration, but Democrats are throwing those rules out…

Why aren’t we running hard on the Democrats support for the Occupy movement?  At least as hard as they are running on Todd Akin? One person is, Karen Harrington running against Debbie Wasserman-Schultz (via The Shark Tank): The material is there, just waiting for a video editor:

I don’t often mention the dispute over abortion. There is something sickening over the Democratic National Convention turning into an abortion-fest, a celebration of the right to kill one’s own unborn child.  It may be a right, but it’s a curious right on which to orchestrate a national convention. The DNC is turning into…

PPP’s flash poll the night before Todd Akin’s initial deadline to withdraw showed Akin still ahead by a point.  I called it a troll poll which would encourage Akin not to withdraw. And so it did, Akin cited the poll in interviews justifying his decision not to withdraw, even as others pointed…

Elizabeth Warren is down in the latest poll, so it seems she has decided to double-down on the war on women theme, running radio ads complaining about Todd Akin and national Republicans. As part of this new theme, Warren also has launched a campaign theme called “Stop Talking” based on Scott Brown…

You would think the Chicago Teachers Union has too much going on right now to wage a personal campaign against a local filmmaker. School starts September 4, and CTU is about to authorize a strike after having been embroiled in a contract standoff with Mayor Rahm Emanuel. And they’ve been busy deploying…

Little would surprise me when it comes to former Providence Mayor and since 2010 congressman David Cicilline. But massive voter fraud? That’s what Cicilline’s Democratic primary challenger Anthony Gemma alleged at a press conference today.  Via The Providence Journal: Congressional candidate Anthony Gemma alleged Wednesday that a private investigation has uncovered voter fraud linked…

The RNC and other groups have been coming out with some pretty effective ads. Given the likely money advantage in the last 60 days, these ads should swarm the television stations in swing states. Call it a good swarm. (video h/t Marathon Pundit)
