Mike DeWine, Sherrod Brown, or a rusty fork to the eyeball? I’m torn.

In the recent past I’ve advocated support for Bill Pierce, a conservative challenger to incumbent U.S. Senator Mike DeWine. Well, chalk that up to stupid idealism. Pierce is roadkill in the May 2nd Republican primary, based on the results of the latest poll by the Columbus Dispatch, which has DeWine in front with 61% to […]

There’s hope for leftists

I’m heartened to see that at least one young reflexive Bush-hater can see his error after speaking to Iraqis. An excerpt: You may think that you have felt dumb before, but let me tell you something: until you have stood in front of a man who knows real pain and told him that you are […]

Attention, Iraq War critics!

Iraqi quagmire, my foot. The terrorists and naysayers have gotten way too much attention. Here’s a reply they deserve.

Purple America

Robert J. Vanderbei at Princeton takes the red state / blue state meme to a much more informative level, using shades of purple on a county-by-county map to show the results of this election. On another map, he even added false mountains to designate areas with higher population. What a great way to clearly convey […]

Coulter vs. Rove

Ann Coulter thinks Karl Rove’s no campaign genius: If Rove is “the architect” — as Bush called him in his acceptance speech — then he is the architect of high TV ratings, not a Republican victory. By keeping the race so tight, Rove ensured that a race that should have been a runaway Bush victory […]

Guam goes red

John at Brown Hound passes the word that Guam is Bush Country. I’m pleasantly surprised, because when I was there from 1994-96, the territory was Democrat turf.

Wictory Wednesday’s parting shot

Watching TV on Election Night

Edison Media Research explains what to watch for on Election Night: One of the aspects of Election Night viewing that people find the most confusing is watching the tote boards the networks display showing the vote with say, “31% of precincts reporting.” Your preferred candidate may be winning at that point, but the networks often […]

Too late for terror to derail Bush

There’s just one week to go. Lately there’s been speculation about whether a terror attack might occur on American soil before Election Day, and if so, what effect it might have on the outcome of the presidential election. I’ve been mulling this over and I think it’s too late for any attack here to hurt […]

Democrat voter fraud continues in Ohio

Good Lord, now the Dems down in Franklin County, Ohio are registering terrorists to vote. When word of this gets out, the turnout among GOP voters in the Buckeye State will blow your mind. I’m a hard-core conservative so I’m already volunteering on Election Day … but if these outrageous shenanigans continue, my fellow Republicans […]

I’m optimistic about Bush’s prospects

The guys at Power Line read the tea leaves and conclude that Bush is winning (and they don’t buy the lastest Gallup poll results, either). RealClearPolitics has been constantly tracking all the major polls and averaging them, which when displayed on a handy chart reinforces the Bush-is-winning point. Outside The Beltway looks at all the […]

British political spammers target Clark County

Arthur Chrenkoff reports on Brits targeting my fellow Ohioans with anti-Bush spam. Who put them up to it and helped them find voters in Clark County? The Guardian newspaper. Talk about an effort doomed to failure. If it weren’t so pathetic, and if I didn’t live elsewhere in Ohio, I’d be annoyed. Instead, I’m mildly […]

Stolen Honor: where to see it

The Democratic National Committee is trying to get the FEC to stomp on Sinclair Broadcasting because the company plans to broadcast the documentary Stolen Honor, which highlights John Kerry’s activities after he left Vietnam and joined the anti-American “peace” movement. The Democrats won’t try to refute it, because they can’t. I own two copies, and […]

Franklin County follies

The Columbus area stands in danger of being the Palm Beach County of the 2004 election. Don’t be surprised if you find vote fraud in Franklin County at the top of the news on November 3rd.

Howard wins in Australia

Prime Minister John Howard of Australia just won reelection … and brought along an increased share of Parliament for his coalition government. Our staunch ally will be at our side for awhile yet, thank God. More coverage: Chrenkoff Power Line Mike Jericho The Diplomad Tim Blair UPDATE: Chrenkoff goes in depth
