She emphasized that we need answers to questions, and can’t risk October surprises.

I’ll get you the full quote and video when available.

in politics and elsewhere, here’s some things:

  • Be sure to check out the blog troll argument.  I think I got someone’s attention.
  • Todd Palin endorses Newt.  I think this helps with Tea Party groups in the south, probably not much in NH.  Will Sarah endorse before South Carolina?  And campaign with the person...

Today is the anniversary of the shooting of Gabrielle Giffords and the murder of several others, including a federal judge and a young girl, by Jared Loughner.

The victims appropriately will be remembered.

Further investigation revealed that Loughner lived in a non-political paranoid delusional world, and to the extent he ever expressed political leanings, they...

What goes around comes around.  Michele Bachmann hired Ed Rollins as campaign manager last spring and the first thing he did was trash Sarah Palin.

Bachmann let the Rollins’ comments hang out there for a while and then went on TV to say what good friends she was with Palin.  Bachmann supporters...

The ABC News interview with Gabrielle Giffords was worth watching except for one moment, when ABC decided that it could not put on a widely-watched full hour program without smearing Sarah Palin by trying to connect Palin’s electoral map to the Giffords shooting (via Newsbusters):

It’s the age-old question.

And it is not a theoretical question, as you know from recent experience here, because if I followed that line of thinking religiously, multiple remaining candidates would be crossed off my list.
