Doings today that didn’t quite fit a full post:
- Smitty is having none of that
crapNational Popular Vote proposal. I posted about this very bad idea back in October. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it; and if it is broke, don’t make it so that Democrats have an easier time stealing an electionworse.
- Someday I might put this in a separate post, but for now, Brent Bozell points out that Newt actually was totally exonerated by the IRS on the tax charges for which he accepted a House Ethics Committee fine, but the networks ignored the findings and perpetuate the myth that he engaged in some sort of tax fraud.
- Not sure how I feel about this, as long as it’s not too whiny I guess it’s a way for a campaign with little money to counteract a campaign with lots of money going negative, Newt’s Iowa supporters plan to ask Mitt Romney to stop his negative campaign. (added) This AP report makes it sound less wimpy.
- Media making a big deal about Perry not being quite up to speed on U.S. Sup. Ct.
- Ron Paul says there was glee in Bush admin after 9/11 because they finally got to invade Iraq.
- At Romney sponsored press phone call yesterday with Sununu and Talent, only liberal media outlets were allowed to ask questions, conservative media totally shut out, for a reason. [Note added: via HotAir, Romney campaign disputes this account, which originated at Daily Caller.]
- Can I call ’em or what? I predicted earlier today Romney would hide behind his surrogates as to attacks on Newt, and guess what just happened. Who, me? (added)
- What else?
- I think this is pretty big, Internal DOJ Email: Kagan Was Brought Into Loop on Mark Levin’s Obamacare Complaint, which may contradict her testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee, although something tells me she will dispute what the meaning of “is” is.
- Newt goes straight for the historical truth no one else is willing to say:
Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.
