If you haven’t done so yet, get your ass over to and help out Jennifer Brunner with a few bucks.

You’ve got fewer than three two hours left (maybe more if you live on the West Coast) to help out with her ‘money bomb’ event.

What are you waiting for?

Do I really need to go into all of the reasons you should be supporting Brunner? Too many to count really.

But let’s add one more to the list: Jeff Coryell has been live blogging the Brunner money bomb event since 4am! Help a fellow blogger out. […]

Just more faux outrage by the overreacting lefties [yawn]:

Nothing to see here. Move on, please!

Ok, this is finally bloggable.? After our very own ResignationPalooza a while back, people were wondering what the hell happened….why didn’t Bill Mason resign?? Who knows.? But this weekend, there appears to be some blood in the water, and the sharks are circling.

WOIO Channel 19 ran a two part series in the 6pm news slot on patronage in Bill Mason’s office yesterday, and today (which isn’t online yet).? We’re hearing that a few more stories are about to drop, perhaps a big one in the Sunday PD.? We’re staying tuned, so should you!

Russia arms deal anyone?

On March 26, 2010 By

When you stop to think about it, it’s breathtaking really what this new President is accomplishing. One day the biggest reform of healthcare in our lifetimes, the next day? Oh, just a nuclear arms treaty with Russia scaling back large stockpiles of nuclear weapons still left over from The Cold War.

Just more manufactured outrage from us on the left:

NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A Nashville man says he and his 10-year-old daughter were victims of road rage Thursday afternoon, all because of a political bumper sticker on his car.

Mark Duren told News 2 the incident happened around 4:30p.m., while he was driving on Blair Boulevard, not far from Belmont University.

He said Harry Weisiger gave him the bird and rammed into his vehicle, after noticing an Obama-Biden sticker on his car bumper.

Duren had just picked up his 10-year-old daughter from school and had her in the car with […]

Here’s a clue. If you are running for statewide office and you are going to be in charge of all our money, you probably should be as transparent as a previously unbroken window in a Democratic Party Headquarters. It’s very simple.

Transparency = Freedom, Democracy, and the American Way

Apparently Republican Josh Mandel and his staffer and current legislative aid Joel Riter are un-American fascists who don’t understand this concept and don’t like the glare of transparency peeking in on their right wing lovefest.

Chris Johnson at the Cincinnatti Beacon has the goods. A video (below) in […]

Today, I propose that all candidates for county council support public hearings, under oath, regarding the drafting of the new county charter.? Only at the Independent.

Mike Vanderboegh, a 57-year-old former “militiaman” from Alabama, who called on teabaggers and wingnuts to “Break their windows.? Break them NOW” has a very interesting way of supporting himself according to WaPo:

Vanderboegh said he once worked as a warehouse manager but now lives on government disability checks. He said he receives $1,300 a month because of his congestive heart failure, diabetes and hypertension.

I’ll hang up and listen.

Again. More examples of manufactured outrage from the left.

No wait…

Damn. I’m going to have to rename this posting series! It just so happens that this is a press conference in which Eric Cantor (R-Va) claims that Dems are really to blame for inciting violence and that his office was shot at! It’s reckless to use incidents for political purposes so why don’t you listen to me while I use a recent incident at my campaign office for political purposes! LOL

Sounds bad, right? Nah:

In an interview with TPM, a Richmond Police Department spokesman said the bullet […]

David Frum is learning how rigid the right is when it comes to criticisms from within. Maybe he didn’t realize how high the bar for ideological purity was when he penned his “Waterloo“, but he just found out:

Dear Arthur,

This will memorialize our conversation at lunch today. Effective immediately, my position as a resident fellow at the American Enterprise Institute is terminated. I appreciate the consideration that delays my emptying of my office until after my return from travel next week. Premises will be vacated no later than April 9.

I have had many fruitful years at […]
