Terri Lynn Land is running for the United States Senate in Michigan, a seat occupied for nearly 40 years by retiring Democrat, Carl Levin.

There hasn’t been a lot of polling in the South Carolina Republican Senate primary, but what polling there is shows Lindsay Graham ahead by 30%+ against potential challengers. But it may still be a challenge for Graham to get the 50% he needs in the primary to avoid a runoff,…

On the assumption that Hillary will be running, it’s going to be interesting to see how liberals who attacked Hillary in 2008 will say, “that was then, this is now.” One particularly nasty attack on Hillary was to accuse her of being a White Power advocate and using Klan talking points.   That…

In early March, Northeastern University temporarily suspended Students for Justice in Palestine after SJP did a “dorm storming” in which it slid anti-Israeli mock eviction notices under 600 dorm room doors in the middle of the night.   SJP already was on probation, and the dorm storming resulted in temporary suspension. SJP then launched a protest march…

Merely accusing Attkisson of “shoddy reporting” is an insufficient response to accusations that Media Matters assists network news in producing stories.

Wendy Davis’ campaign has had its problems. The revelation that her life story of personal struggle and triumph as a single mother was embellished was a game changer. Her campaign has had a communications problem as well, playing media favorites and putting Davis on stage with a shotgun in a Dukakis-in-tank moment. The…
