Posted by

I highlighted yesterday the precipitous drop in military absentee ballot requests in key battleground state Virginia. It’s happening in battleground Wisconsin too, as reported by The MacIver Institute: At least 30 Wisconsin municipalities failed to send absentee ballots to military voters before the 45 day deadline, according to former U.S. Secretary of Veterans…

The video below, Absolutely Uncertain (h/t @SGLawrence) already has over 800,000 views on YouTube. I understand Irina’s point, the trust in Obama has been shaken, and now she is uncertain about Obama’s commitment to Israel. I’m not uncertain.  I am certain that in a second term, freed of the need to be reelected,…

Minutes before tonight’s debate, Elizabeth Warren issued a list of all of the cases she has worked on since joining Harvard.  It was an impressive list, proving what I have said all along, she practiced law on a regular basis from her Harvard office.  But she was not licensed in Massachusetts. Via…

Quick takes on the debate which just ended. End Result — As with most of these things, people will see what they want. I’d say while Brown won hands down the first debate, this one was more even.  Brown won big on Warren’s personal problems, which took up the first 15 minutes or…

Is tonight the night Elizabeth Warren’s law license problem goes mainstream? (Update – No)

Posted by
10/1/2012 at 5:20pm
Despite a Drudge link, huge linkage everywhere in the conservative blogosphere, and defensiveness in the left-legal blogosphere, Elizabeth Warren’s law license problem has not broken into the mainstream media. Other than some passing references, the Boston press has ignored it, even as debates raged on the internet and Boston talk radio. There seems…

The government has become quite efficient under Obama at fast walking guns to Mexico and free cell phones to Cleveland, but has ignored its obligation to secure and promote absentee ballot requests from the military. Via Virginia Watchdog: A 92 percent drop in absentee-ballot requests by military personnel in Virginia is raising concerns…
