Robert Stacy McCain is still on the Brett Kimberlin/Aaron Walker story while many others have moved on, including these recent posts: Raw Story…

Elizabeth Warren is the Democratic Party nominee for Senate, after party leaders twisted arms to make sure Marisa DeFranco did not make the primary ballot. Warren may have become the nominee, but she’s still not Native American. Whereas prior to May 2012 one might have said Warren simply believed what she (allegedly) was told, now the…

While it isn’t a new strategy, it seems as if the left has recently been ratcheting up its utilization of the stonewalling tactic when confronted by high profile controversy. Elizabeth Warren, who continues to show no signs of ever engaging in an honest discussion with the public about her bogus claims to…

Results are trickling in. I’m having trouble finding any webpages with official results as of this moment, but the Twittersphere has reported that Elizabeth Warren received 95.77% of the vote. If this is confirmed, Warren will have successfully secured the Democratic nomination and won’t be forced into a primary battle. Official results…

Ann Althouse (via Instapundit) has a post about a mailer she received from a pro-Recall group in Wisconsin telling her which of her neighbors voted and which did not in the past several years.  Althouse’s reaction: This is an effort to shame and pressure people about voting, and it is truly despicable.
