Democrats: Are You Paying Your Campaign Workers a ‘Living Wage?’

by Steve MacDonald April 16, 2018

Torn from the headlines at HotAir.com, a question of epic and historical weight. Why won’t Democrats let their campaign workers unionize? When workers on one self-proclaimed progressive’s congressional campaign decided to unionize, they ran into “classic union busting” tactics, according [to] a former staffer, who asked that he and the campaign remain anonymous for fear of […]

Clinton Ignored Recommendation to Fire Top Adviser Accused of Sexual Harassment

by Steve MacDonald January 26, 2018

Hillary Clinton covering up or ignoring sexual harassment is hardly a story. But I’m bored. This one is from 2008, and there’s gotta be more stories like this out there. A 30-year-old woman who shared an office with Strider told a campaign official that he had kissed her on the forehead, rubbed her shoulders inappropriately, […]

To Democrats Still Bitching About the Election…

by Steve MacDonald December 9, 2016

To Democrats bitching about winning the national popular vote and losing the electoral college (one more time). What was your pre-election day strategy? Was it to win the electoral college vote (win the state’s electors) or to just win more of the national popular vote in Democrat enclaves like California and New York? Let me […]

Nothing to See Here – Back to the Revolution

by Ed Naile March 6, 2016

The investigation by Federal Authorities into unlawful campaign donations doesn’t have a lot of meat on its bones from what I can see. If you look at Bernie’s FEC Filings it is apparent a lot of his supporters, probably senior citizens or people unfamiliar with campaign donation limits, were making repeated, small donations which in […]

The Problem With Perry

by Steve MacDonald September 14, 2015

From a Conservative Blogger inside Texas, on Governor Rick Perry He was a champion on pro-Life issues, and he never raised taxes (in a consequential manner) or made pre-K an emergency item. In partisan fights against the Democrats, he was a reliable ally. Unfortunately, both in Texas and Nationally, the most important fights are no […]

LOL! Only 6 people at a Hillary ‘reset’ party in one Iowa town

by Kimberly Morin June 13, 2015

CNN hosts calls it ‘pitiful’. Apparently the Hillary Clinton campaign was holding ‘watch parties’ across Iowa today. Looks like there are about as many people excited to see Hillary as there are who enjoy watching paint dry. h/t Christy Waters

Perry Drops Out

by Steve MacDonald January 19, 2012

Not sure I need to say much more, but when has that ever stopped me? Perry had a huge advantage but squandered it by being too casual about the public debate personae.  The end result was the crash and burn of an otherwise competent conservative with far fewer negatives than the rest of the field […]

Can You Smell The Campaign Fires?

by Steve MacDonald February 10, 2011

After two years of extravagance on the taxpayer dime. Week after week of high priced parties with expensive food and high priced entertainment. Date nights that shut down cities. Frivolous trips (in his and her jetliners complete with entourage) to various parts of the globe. Vacation, after vacation, after vacation. And despite the glamor of a designer wardrobe, pimped by the adoring media for the past 24 months, we are now supposed to be impressed by this?

Sign Of The Times

by Steve MacDonald October 17, 2010

Bob Nickerson of Sandown had a campaign sign confiscated. It was a Carol Shea-Porter sign he had modified himself to say “Dump Shea-Porter Out Of Congress, Nancy Pelosi’s Lap Dog.” His first mistake seems to have been sending the Seiu-Porter campaign a picture of it. The campaign notified local police based on a state law that prohibits defacing campaign signs, and at the end of it all Bob lost his sign.

Democrats Pull Resources From Seiu-Porter?

by Steve MacDonald October 12, 2010

Red State is reporting that the DSCC has pulled a Party operative who was supposed to be helping Carol Shea-Porter, and moved them down to Delaware to help the Democrat Senatorial candidate Coons. That means they are afraid Coons needs help despite polling that shows him way ahead, and that Carol is expendable. I can’t […]
