OCTOBER 16, 2012




CROWLEY: Good evening from Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York. I’m Candy Crowley from CNN’s “State of the Union.” We are here for the second presidential debate, a town hall, sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates.

CROWLEY: The Gallup organization chose 82 uncommitted voters from the New York area. Their questions will drive the night. My goal is to give the conversation […]

Immediately after tonight’s debate, Megyn Kelly — anchor of Fox News debate coverage — went on a rant about how horrible the questions were, in particular highlighting the focus on women.

KELLY: And the questions! 11 questions asked in all, and some of which will certainly be discussed tomorrow. Topics that we haven’t heard at all in this campaign — equal pay for women, in fact there were a lot of women’s issues discussed…abortion, contraception, women’s pay as I mentioned. Some might argue it was obvious pandering to women because the female vote is so important in this election.

The Dispatch’s desperate attempt to support the Romney-Ryan ticket moved past silly into parody yesterday.

We suspect that history will remember Joe Vardon’s Daily Briefing Post yesterday as the moment when the Dispatch’s political coverage Jumped the Shark.  In other words, as TV Tropes describes it, Vardon’s post on Paul Ryan’s staged dishwashing at a kitchen for the homeless is “that moment makes the viewers realize that the show has finally run out of ideas.

Quick background.  After a rally […]

The court gave a one sentence ruling without dissent:

On the heels of this decision, Secretary of state Jon Husted issued a new directive that outlined hours for voting on the Saturday, Sunday, and Monday before the election.

Ohio Democratic Party Chairman Chris Redfern on a conference call today is now calling on Jon Husted to […]

Cuyahoga County Executive Ed FitzGerald, reported to be livid over the governor’s plan to privatize the turnpike, will endorse a YES vote on Issue 2 at a Cleveland news conference today, sources said.

Voters First, the official YES on 2 campaign, announced the former FBI agent will attend a 2 pm. news conference today.

A FitzGerald confidante said he has been quietly simmering over the Kasich Administration’s constant efforts to take money and other resources from the cities.

The debate about whether the Tea Party is racist is over.  It is a movement at its core where racism runs rampant.  How else can you explain this ad?

This was a video by some conservative tracker service that tries to get footage of Obama supporters saying impolitic things.  It went viral on Drudge last month.

Get an African American voter who sounds unintelligent talking about entitlements she receives under a black President.  Put the footage in black and white.  Edit it into a loop to make her sound angry and interrupting.

It’s not a coincidence.  It’s by design.  It’s […]
