Closing the Deal

Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

After abandoing Sen. Conrad Burns months ago, the NRSC has caught up with everyone else and placed Montana back on its map.  The NRSC has purchased over $300,000 in television time between this past weekend and the election.  The expenditure is well more than a drop in the bucket in media-cheap Montana.
For the past year, […]

Sticking with Burns

Friday, October 27th, 2006

There are at least two other people who haven´t given up on the reelection of Sen. Conrad Burns.  The President and VP will both be in Montana making appearances on his behalf in the coming week.  The visits will highlight for Montanans the important differences between Burns and his far out opponent.  While some have […]

Kennedy Closing?

Friday, October 27th, 2006

Gary Miller thinks so.  In part because of a new ad, the dynamics of the race have begun to shift in Kennedy´s favor.  He remains well behind in independent polls, but apparently has closed the gap in the internals.  At one point earlier in the cycle, this looked like the GOP´s best bet for a […]

Fat Lady Sings in Ohio

Friday, October 27th, 2006

Contrary to last week´s denials of GOP abandonment of Sen. Mike DeWine, the RNC pulled the plug on plans to run ads in the final week of the campaign.  Rep. Sherrod Brown has recently blown the race wide open and left DeWine in even worse shape that Sen. Rick Santorum Samuel Mudd.  Effectively this means […]

Rep. Mark Kennedy talks about the differences between himself and Amy Klobuchar.  Is there any question who would better represent the people of Minnesota?

Anyone Want to Contribute a Calculator to the NRSC?

Wednesday, October 25th, 2006

Here is a leaked list of NRSC targets for the final two weeks.  Notice anything strange?
According to Sen. Dole & Co., Sen. Conrad Burns, who is in a statistical tie with challenger Jon Tester, is “done”.  At the same time, the Rhode Island race is a “toss-up”.  This is a rather unique read on the […]

Another Epic Comeback

Monday, October 23rd, 2006

Down 17-13 and out of timeouts, Notre Dame got the ball on its own 20 with just 1:02 to play.  While may teams would have folded, there was no doubt that Notre Dame would pull another one out with Brady Quinn at the helm.  Quinn went 3/3 on the game winning drive, including two passes […]

Rumors of His Death Have Been Greatly Exaggerated

Friday, October 20th, 2006

With many, this blogger not included, having written him off, Sen. Conrad Burns appears to have bounced back in his Senate race against far left favorite Jon Tester.  Recent polls had shown Tester jumping out to a high single digits margin, but now Rasmussen Reports has the race statistically tied, with Burns now just […]

Some Lefty`s Will Stop At Nothing

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

Yesterday, another blogger, whom I will not dignify with a link from this site, made allegations about past sexual encounters of a United States Senator.  This goes far beyond any ethical limitations of this field or any other.  The blogger in question, while unethical, has also engaged in illegal activity, as he blackmailed this Senator […]
