The Other McCain

"One should either write ruthlessly what one believes to be the truth, or else shut up." — Arthur Koestler

Is the Mississippi GOP Corrupt?

The dishonest effort to re-elect Thad Cochran hits a new low: The “super PAC” supporting the senator . . . is paying African-American leaders, including Bishop Crudup, to help lift black turnout on Tuesday, said Pete Perry, a Republican strategist here who is working for the group. Who is Pete Perry? Who is funding this […]

Virginia Shocker: Cantor Canned

by Smitty Virginia is for lovers of elections and political gymnastics. Since its 2009 inception, the Tea Party had run an insurgency to force conventions for state-wide elections, which resulted in (what I thought) was a dynamite slate for last November’s elections: Cuccinelli/Jackson/Obenshain. Alas, the GOP elite didn’t seem to care much about this off-year […]

#RLC2014 Straw Poll Results: @TedCruz

by Smitty Conservative Intel sponsored the poll. I’m optimistic because we’re seeing a grassroots tsunami rise up to #MakeDCListen: http://t.co/QNDkAICzei #RLC2014 pic.twitter.com/aGYd3tghHD — Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) May 31, 2014 And Senator Ted Cruz is the winner!

If The @GOP Nominates Jeb, I Hope @SarahPalinUSA Runs

by Smitty From the FaceBook page that makes Obama wet himself: Hey! Hillary’s brain is off-limits! Leave her health records alone! Democrats are right – scouring records of a female candidate is just politics of personal destruction, and for the media to engage in it would be unfair, unethical, and absolutely UNPRECEDENTED. You can’t probe […]

GOP’s Angst Correlates To Progressivism

by Smitty Totally disagree with Dean Clancy at U.S. News: And no matter how the GOP fares in November — even if it should somehow wipe the floor with the Democrats — President Obama’s veto pen will still be there, waiting to stop any plan they can manage to put on his desk. This will […]

Didn’t I Tell Him to Resign?

What I said about Rep. Vance McAllister (R-Adultery) yesterday: A part-time district scheduler? Dude, if a congressman is making out with a part-time district scheduler, you know he’s gotta be banging Hill staffers two at a time. It’s probably just a. matter of time before we start getting more headlines: “Vance McAllister dirty texting,” “Vance McAllister […]

Shut Up and Resign Already

Few things I hate worse than a Republican politician who screws around like a Democrat politician: Rep. Vance McAllister (R-La.) asked for forgiveness Monday afternoon after a video purporting to show the congressman kissing a female staffer in his congressional office in Louisiana surfaced. McAllister, who was just elected in a November special election, has […]

Vichy GOP Skullduggery

by Smitty “Maybe you say it helps (Obamacare), but it really helps the small businessman,” said Rep. Phil Roe, R-Tenn., one of several physician-lawmakers among Republicans and an advocate of repeal. No member of the House GOP leadership has publicly hailed the fix, which was tucked, at Republicans’ request, into legislation preventing a cut in […]
