On Election night it was particularly satisfying to see Mia Love elected to the House of Representatives in Utah’s 4th District. It was satisfying not just because it was a Republican pick up, but because of our long history of following Mia’s political career from its infancy: We first covered Mia — and…

Democrats who had hoped for at least a week to sleep off their election night hangovers are getting no rest after the latest disclosure of court documents by advocacy group Judicial Watch. Judicial Watch has spent a great deal of time and resources seeking information about the IRS targeting of conservative groups. In September,…

Obama described Democratic Party losses in the 2010 midterms as a shellacking. If 2010 was a shellacking, this midterm was a political drubbing of epic proportions.

The Orlando Sentinel newspaper is reporting that it appears as if no actual witnesses showed up for today’s Federal Grand Jury convened to determine if civil rights charges should be brought against George Zimmerman for his self-defense shooting of Trayvon Martin. The DOJ had subpoenaed Frank Taaffe, a self-declared “friend” of Zimmerman’s,…

As I discussed earlier this week, the local races would be vitally important in this election. I must admit, I despaired that California would completely miss-out on this “change election”, and simply hoped that we might be able to elect Republican Carl DeMaio into CA-52’s congressional seat — though I did predict…

Maryland hasn’t gone purple. Yet. But we have a Republican Governor for just the third time in 48 years. (Spiro Agnew was elected in 1966 and served until 1969, when he went to White House as Richard Nixon’s vice president. Bob Ehrlich was elected in 2002, but was defeated for re-election four years later…

The most dangerous two years are upon us, as Obama has nothing to lose but his legacy. Preserving that legacy, as unpopular as it has proven to be, is all he has now. Obama himself said his policies were on the ballot. And the people spoke last night, rejecting those policies. Obama has…
