Time to focus on places other than Missouri — Dan Bongino would be a good place to start

Beyond Missouri — Dan Bongino in Maryland gaining endorsements and momentum

In late June, I wrote about the importance of putting Maryland conservative Dan Bongino in the U.S. Senate this November. Last week, he was officially added to the Operation Counterweight final list.  You can donate here. While Bongino’s race against incumbent Democrat Ben Cardin has received brief glances of national attention along…

It will take more than 4 years for the full effects of Obamanomics to be achieved.  But not for lack of trying. From reader Rod: Took this picture while driving with friends through Temple, Tx.

Not a great day. Someone I know, an indefatigable blogger, decided to go to bed early. Don’t focus on the bad.  Think about the great candidates we have like Mia B. Love, who just rolled out this video: Remember Operation Counterweight. Do I have to come over and slap you?

Hannity, Akin, what now?

Posted by
8/21/2012 at 6:07pm
Sean Hannity’s interview of Todd Akin this afternoon was very uncomfortable and unsettling. Hannity pressed Akin just about every way he could, but he and Akin were ships passing in the night. (Partial transcripts here and here) Notice at 19:00 of the audio when Akin refers to the PPP (troll) poll showing him up by…

Is Elizabeth Warren tanking? PPP poll shows Brown surge

Is Elizabeth Warren tanking? PPP poll shows Brown surge

Posted by
8/21/2012 at 3:01pm
I joked the other day about Elizabeth Warren’s Mike Dukakis Tank moment. Maybe tanking was the right word, because a PPP poll just released shows Warren 5 points behind and Warren’s negatives rising dramatically (emphasis mine): PPP’s newest poll on the Massachusetts Senate race finds Scott Brown opening up a 5 point lead,…

Republican nominee for U.S. Senate Todd Akin repeated on the Mike Huckabee radio show that he will stay in the race, saying “We are going to continue with this race for U.S. Senate,” which he then confirmed on Dana Loesch’s The Dana Show shortly after: I don’t think this thing is lost by any means….I…

for you know what. Lots of speculation and “inside info” on the internets. Update: Perhaps this will provide some clarity (radio link here) Todd Akin on today’s show 12:35 central. #dlrs— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) August 21, 2012

For three bucks, you too can have dinner with Barack Obama.  You may be the winner already! But wait, there’s more. You get to pay several hundred dollars in taxes! But call within the next ten minutes and you will get whine with dinner, because Romney is flush with cash and Obama is not: … as of…

PPP finds Akin still leads McCaskill – Troll poll?

Posted by

PPP finds Todd Akin still leads Claire McCaskill, and that the numbers have not changed much since the controversy broke: Missouri voters strongly disagree with the comments Todd Akin made about abortion over the weekend, but it hasn’t moved the numbers a whole lot in the Senate race. Akin leads Claire McCaskill…

Hannity interviews Akin

Posted by
8/20/2012 at 7:10pm
Hannity laid it on the line for Todd Akin, is he willing to drag down the presidential ticket and the goal of taking back the Senate. Listening to the audio, you can see how Akin would be a good candidate against McCaskill if he had not shot himself in the foot. The question…

Elizabeth Warren plays the rape card against Scott Brown, just like Martha Coakley

Posted by
8/20/2012 at 4:30pm
In what looks and feels like a reincarnation of the bizarre 2010 Martha Coakley rape mailer attack on Scott Brown, Elizabeth Warren has put together a graphic on her facebook page that attempts to take advantage of the Todd Akin controversy by tying Brown to some supposed Republican pro-rape agenda. Here is what Warren posted on…

Yes, Akin should drop out

Posted by

Yesterday I cautioned against piling on a candidate within minutes before giving the candidate a chance to react himself. With the benefit of 24 hours, it’s clear that Akin has become a national liability, in part because his apology was round-about, in part because Republicans are not forgiven as easily as Democrats…

This past Saturday, Tea Party activists from Ohio and around the country converged on Cleveland for the Occupy the Truth for Peace and Justice rally and march. Organized by Andrew Marcus of the upcoming documentary, “Hating Breitbart,” the march centered on Andrew Breitbart’s charge to expose the mainstream media—in this case,…

whether a Republican congressman one year ago jumped in Lake Kinneret, also known as the Sea of Galilee, without his swim trunks on. A year ago. An f-in year ago.  Skinny dipping.  One person.  And some others who — wait for it — got drunk. Actually the subject of an FBI investigation.  As Jonah…

From reader Tracy: We took this photo in Cornelius, North Carolina. The car was from Buncombe County, which is Asheville, one of the most liberal cities in the state. And you can’t fix it (language warning):
