Broken Chair

by Tom January 9, 2015

So, a fellow Republican, from your home town, attacks you on social media. He accuses you of being “a total Conservative fraud”, “working for Organizing for America”, being a “Conservative In Name Only”, and negatively equates you with “Obama’s second term”. These attacks were not only baseless; they were foolish and immature. These attacks were […]

Big Money Buckley

by Ed Naile January 6, 2014

I know when I see genius word-smithing and big money Democrat Party Chairman Ray Buckley has delivered again. This is why Buckley is paid big money by the Democrat Party. Part of being a successful party chairman and getting paid the big money is being able to write a press release that subtly gets the […]

Five Guys Amnesty And Lies – A Tale of NHGOP Chairman and So-Called Immigration Reform

by Steve MacDonald June 13, 2013

No offense to the burger joint- great food, but after having been forwarded an op-ed in support of the current immigration scheme, how could I resist? Steve Duprey, John Stabile, Wayne Semprint, Fergus Cullen and Wayne MacDonald (the gang of 5), wrote a letter, published in the Laconia Daily Sun (and in the la Raza […]

Someone Else Now A Solid Second For NH-GOP Chairman

by Steve MacDonald December 16, 2012

What a difference five days makes.  Last tuesday we reported on a poll running at the political fiction section of the NH Blogosphere (also known as NH Journal), in which the establishment candidate for NH-GOP chairman, Jennifer Horn was running in third place behind Andrew Hemingway and ‘Someone Else.’ A few hours later we updated […]

Jennifer Horn – Is She Wishing She was “Someone Else?” (Updated and Bumped)

by Steve MacDonald December 11, 2012

Well, ain’t this sweet? NH Journal, you remember them, Shawn Millerick, Pat Hynes…they specialize in political fiction.  Well, I guess they had a poll asking who should be the next Chair of the NHGOP. The NH Journal Poll has the following results: Who should be the next Chair of the NHGOP? Andrew Hemingway (59%) Someone […]

NH Journal – I Have A Question

by Steve MacDonald December 1, 2012

Pat Hynse flunky and NH Journal editor Shawn Millerick went to bat for the progressive (r)epublican establishment the other day by fabricating a secret meeting, with a select guest list, for the purpose of agitating the voting members to support the anointed NHGOP chairman of choice, Jennifer Horn–because hey, we have to come together and […]

With This Bunch Failure Is Always An Option

by Steve MacDonald November 29, 2012

I’m torn between thinking this is just sad or that it’s just funny.  Maybe ironic is a better word? First, the NHGOP establishment power brokers (who forced Jack Kimball out) just cleared the field to make sure that the preferred, groomed, in-debted (and in debt) to them, moderate insider was the only candidate left running […]

Jack Kimball Wins

by Steve MacDonald January 22, 2011

Most everyone will know by now that the GOP convention was a rousing affair, very goodhearted and unifying overall, and that Jack Kimball is the New Party Chairman.

Bend It For The Benjamins

by Steve MacDonald January 19, 2011

As a follow up to this, yesterday or maybe the day before, the NH Journal (NHJ), New Hampshire’s prominent internet news source if the news is whatever Hynes communications is being paid to call news, decided to float a lie called pin the conservative blogger to Jack Kimball. Someone the NH Journal staff knew would stir the pot was fingered as Kimball’s communications director if he won the job as GOP State party chairman, even though no one–including Kimball and the blogger–knew anything about it until after the digital ink was dry.

How To Know You Have A Winner

by Steve MacDonald January 17, 2011

You can just tell when you have a winner. It becomes more important for your opponents to smear your candidate than to promote theirs. It’s all about scare tactics. The noise machine. The echo chamber. Creating a narrative. And the media and the career party folks all seem like they are on the same side frantically offering doomsday scenarios.

Unite Behind What?

by Steve MacDonald January 4, 2011

As for “bringing the party together,” it is not a notion in a vacuum nor desirable if the product moves us in the wrong direction. Unity, more often than not, is the product of a force of nature whose clarity about the goal or mission is so clear that people gather round to listen and then feel compelled to act. Julianna Bergeron may be faithful and competent from the perspective of a party insider, but so is a good accountant. That does not make them capable of leading and inspiring a movement.

What’s In Your Narrative?

by Steve MacDonald December 30, 2010

Plenty of people who think they are quite attuned to the echo chamber are spending a good deal of time doing the progressives and RINO’s dirty work.  These are people on the right, so-called insiders who get how the game is played.  Yet again (and again) I find the chorus repeating the message which the […]

And Let Me Add This…

by Steve MacDonald December 26, 2010

Let me add this to Skips post just a short scroll below this one. State GOP candidate for Chairman Juliana Bergeron’s false grass roots mantle (and it is false) is not just an opportunistic stab at tapping populist enthusiasm, she could find herself left behind should she win by simply tilting at the TEA parties windmills.

He Hasn’t Paid His Dues

by Steve MacDonald December 26, 2010

It has come to my attention that sometimes having the qualities necessary to get the job done are irrelevant. And that seems to be the opinion of some establishment republicans who have admitted that while Jack Kimball would probably be a great party Chairmen, this sliver of old-guard regulars can’t cast a vote for him because he has not paid his dues.

Sununu’s Successor “Chosen?”

by Steve MacDonald December 8, 2010

James Pindell is reporting that Governor Sununu plans to endorse Cheshire County Republican Chair Juliana Bergeron as his replacement in what seems to be a power sharing deal that allows Governor Sununu to exercise the “You better choose the right person” clause from his formal letter to the party. (Which Skip went over here)

Just Do It!

by Steve MacDonald December 4, 2010

I am growing weary of this game. We can no longer wait for the current NH State GOP chairman to tell us once and for all what his intentions are. I’m not even sure why we are waiting. GraniteGrok has video of the announced retirement from the Cornerstone Dinner.
