Dems Pick Fight Over Early Voting for Military in Ohio

August 5, 2012

The Obama campaign and the Ohio Democrats are filing a lawsuit against an Ohio law allowing members of the military to cast an early-voting ballot until the day before Election Day.  Granted, the cut-off day for everyone else is three days before the election, but due to the erratic schedules of some military personnel the [...]

Senate Election Polling Shows Mixed Results

July 19, 2010

Some good news and some bad news still a few months out before Election Day. The good news:  in the Pennsylvania Senate race, Pat Toomey’s up 45-38% over Joe Sestak in the latest Rasmussen poll.  I’d say “Keep up the good work, PA” but Pennsylvania loves to disappoint Republicans.  We’ll see how this plays out.

HHS Backs Off Federally-Funded Abortions for Now

July 19, 2010

In lieu of the uproar last week about Obama Care’s mixed messages regarding federally funded elective abortions, the administration (or as Rush Limbaugh calls them, “the regime“) has clarified that the executive order stands and that federal funds being used for Obama Care’s high-risk insurance pools will NOT cover elective abortions.

Arlen Faces the Specter of Defeat

August 13, 2009

Arlen Specter has taken a political beating lately.  Like other Democrats who are actually brave enough to face their constituents, Specter recently attended a series of town hall meetings where he should have discovered that applying Barack Obama’s government-knows-best philosophy to the greatest health care system in the world isn’t exactly the kind of hope [...]

For Arlen Specter, What Goes Around Comes Around

May 7, 2009

A week ago, Pennsylvania Senator Benedict Arlen Specter made a completely opportunistic party switch from the GOP to the Democrats.  He did so because his vote on the stimulus had put him behind in the polls against primary challenger Pat Toomey, and he felt that he could more easily win reelection as a Democrat.  So [...]

Chris Matthews Is Out

January 7, 2009

No, not that; he’s out of the 2010 Pennsylvania Senate race.  After a year of speculation that Mr. Tingles would challenge Senator Arlen Specter in 2010, the Whiffleball host decided to forgo a Senate run in order to remain with MSNBC. Matthews’ decision is probably for the best.  A Senate run would have forced Matthews [...]

November 28, 2008

Obama-worshiper and MSNBC pundit Chris Matthews appears to be planning a run for the Senate, according to Five-Thirty-Eight. He appears poised to run in his home state of Pennsylvania in the 2010 election against RINO Arlen Specter.  I know, I was surprised too to see Matthew’s running as a Democrat.  He was always so fair [...]

The Ground Game is On!

November 2, 2008

One of the big reasons Bush won in both 2000 and 2008 was a successful Get-out-the-vote ground game.  Jim Geraghty at National Review Online’s campaign spot posted some notes from his mentor, known as “Obi-Wan Kenobi”, who has some insights into how the ground game is going in the battleground states.  The notes should help [...]

McCain’s Debate Win

September 27, 2008

Focus groups are a double edged sword. On the one hand, focus groups are more useful than properly-conducted polls because they allow us to explore the reasons behind people’s thoughts in greater depth than a properly-conducted poll does. On the flip side, the small sample size one gets in a focus groups makes them highly [...]
