Christine O’Donnell’s Not a Witch, But They’re Gonna Burn Her Anyway

What to make of reports that former Delaware GOP Senate candidate Christine O’Donnell is under federal investigation for campaign finance violations? Her campaign manager Matt Moran is quoted by ABC News: “The anonymous source seems politically-motivated and may well be tied to the ultra-liberal, George Soros-financed, former Sen. Biden staffer-run CREW [Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics […]

‘The Demagogic Bloggers on the Right’

Frequent commenter “Joe” calls our attention to Patterico’s dig at Jeff Goldstein (and unnamed others) in which the prosecutor endeavors to play the Instapundit card: Now that Glenn has said the same thing the “pragmatic” conservatives are saying, will the blogospheric demagogues who seek out Mark Levin’s favor put Glenn Reynolds on the list of […]

Patterico’s Latest Gambit: Trying to Pit Michelle Malkin Against Mark Levin?

More unfortunate fallout today from the Delaware Senate campaign, a subject about which I know a lot but have said relatively little in recent weeks. To explain my side of the story: From early October onward, I tried to turn my attention (and readers’ attention) to House races. The Senate campaigns were getting plenty of coverage […]

Christine O’Donnell: We The People Of The First State

by Smitty Screw Comcast to the wall. One hopes that the ballot box verdict in a few hours brings the jolly bollocking they merit. In the meantime, set aside my rant and take the time to ensure this video has more viewers as a result of their perfidy than it otherwise would have: We the […]

Greetings from Bristol, Va.

Please excuse the 24-hour absence of bl0gging, and thanks to Smitty and Wombat for producing excellent content in my absence. Yesterday I drove from Hagerstown to Christiansburg, Va., and then on to Abingdon, where I filed 950 words last night The American Spectator: ABINGDON, Va. — Rick Boucher voted for the “Job-Killing Cap & Trade Energy Tax,” says […]

Gov. Pete DuPont Steps Up To The Plate

by Smitty A late night dose of righteousness from The Libertarian Republican. Gov. Pete DuPont in the WSJ, emphasis mine: So last week I attended two O’Donnell-Coons debates and saw a campaign that could determine which party will be in the Senate majority. Mr. Coons has been elected three times to New Castle County office; […]

Basic Rule of Politics: Never Lose a Friend By Trying to Placate Your Enemies

When it comes to a fight, the only true measure of a friend is, “Will they fight?” Befriending cowardly punks is a waste of time. Say what you will about Pamela Geller, she has never backed away from a fight. Two weeks ago, the New York Times did a hit piece on Geller that I ignored […]
