The Other McCain

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

Worst. Headline. Evah.

Some things make you want to gouge your eyes out: Murkowski now has apparently insurmountable lead of 10,000+ votes When I saw that at Hot Air Headlines, I knew that it was time to confront this ugly reality head-on.  That dreadful excuse for a human being has been re-elected, and we must ask ourselves, “Why?” […]

Go, Randy Altschuler, GO! And A Loud ‘Keep The Faith’ For Joe Miller!

by Smitty This blog has been a fan of Altschuler in NY-1 since CPAC 2010. The latest word is that he has assumed a tiny lead: Rob Ryan, a spokesman for the Altschuler campaign, said Friday that the Republican candidate now has a 392 vote advantage. But it will likely take at least a week […]

by Smitty Conservatives4Palin has the play-by-play. They also point to the Alaska elections site, which, filtering the chaff, lists 125 valid competitors for The Seat Her Daddy Gave Her To Keep, if I filtered the noise correctly.

Forget Client #9 And Whatshername: Give Me Da Tech Guy And William Jacobson

by Smitty Somebody whose blog-fu exceeds mine handily is Da Tech Guy. While out galavanting with RSM, he paid a visit to William Jacoboson of Legal Insurrection, another premier blogger. The big question here is why these two don’t have a talk show. Unlike so much of the swill sloshing about on the cable networks, […]

The source noted that some of Miller’s campaign staff have connections to 2008 Republican presidential candidate Mike Huckabee, and suggested that […]

GOP SCANDAL: Which Senators Are Protecting Backstabber Lisa Murkowski?

When she lost the GOP primary in August, she refused to concede, and the National Republican Senatorial Committee flew its top lawyer to Anchorage to advise her. When the absentee ballots were finally counted, Murkowski conceded the Republican nomination — but secretly continued her desperate intrigues to retain her Senate seat. In a shameful course […]

SATURDAY: Help Celebrate National ‘Denounce Lisa Murkowski Day’

Let’s face it: Lisa the Loser’s pathetic write-in campaign is such a disgusting RINO backstabber move that even Charlie Crist would be ashamed to try anything so transparently desperate. To call Murkowski foul scum would be an insult to scum. The editors of National Review have taken Senate Republicans to task for failing to strip […]
