The Other McCain

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

‘Progressive Rock Star’ Katie Porter Spends $24 Million for Reelection

Apologies for the lack of blogging Thursday, but because today is Veterans Day, my day job required me to do two days of work in advance, blah blah blah. Anyway, I happened to click on a Hot Air item by John Sexton, toward the end of which, this part caught my attention: Finally, another race […]

Denial Is Not a Strategy

“I dismiss that,” Nancy Pelosi said Tuesday on MSNBC, when Andrea Mitchell asked about polls showing “rising inflation concerns along with crime, giving . . . new momentum to Republicans”: PELOSI: First of all, let me say that I think much of what you have said I don’t agree with. That is to say, the […]

More Signs of a Midterm ‘Red Wave’?

Ann Althouse captures Frank Bruni of the New York Times worrying that Joe Biden’s unpopularity may sink Raphael Warnock’s Senate reelection bid in Georgia. (Hat-tip: Instapundit.) The other big problem for Warnock is that the Democratic candidate for governor is Stacey Abrams, who is losing very badly to Gov. Brian Kemp. Bruni is apparently trying […]

The J6 Committee Tantrum

The J6 Smear Machine

“A show trial is a mock or make-believe trial in which the guilt of the party is predetermined. The trial is just a form of theater. Lenin called them ‘model trials.’ The aim was not to discover the truth — which was supposedly already known — but to stage a propaganda exhibition.” — Roger Kimball […]

Democrats in Midterm Meltdown as DCCC Chairman Makes ‘Racist’ District Move

Let’s face it, this was never going to be a good year to be in charge of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. The D-Triple-C has its occasional good years (e.g., 2006 and 2018), but this year is not going to be one of those years. When Democrats captured control of the House in 2018, they […]

The Jan. 6 Witch Hunt Committee

Tristan Justice at The Federalist calls attention to a Washington Post article which admits that the committee “investigating” the Jan. 6, 2021, Capitol riot is not actually an investigation, but is instead “a key part of the Democrats midterm strategy.” Because some of my acquaintances have been targets of this witch hunt, I can vouch […]
