SD: Happy Memorial Day!

Happy Memorial Day! It is really, REALLY, gratifying to see all the volunteers across this state who are excited to be out campaigning for a cause they believe in (heck, even the GOP volunteers). It is even more moving to see all of them up this morning - on very little sleep - heading out on Memorial Day to get people out to vote. I can’t think of a better way to thank the millions of folks who have …

SD: More Canvassing!

I swear I didn’t Photoshop this… Republicans seen today: 2 UPDATE: ok. i was wrong - the “out of state conservatives” ARE, in fact, on the ground. Although our intelligence indicates that they have A LOT of empty vans (indicating less people showed up then they planned for) and that a bunch of them were drinking outside of their hotel at like 6pm, while our South Dakota volunteers were still HARD AT WORK. Also, thank you for all the …

SD GOP: Running Scared & Lying

So, the SD GOP website, http://www.southdakotagop.com/ is freaking out about how organized we are. They also neglect to mention that we have tons activists FROM SOUTH DAKOTA knocking on doors. What is even more amusing to me than them posting OUR pictures, is that they are (as you probably already know), big GIANT hypocrites. They flew over 100 Hill Staff into Omaha yesterday. That trip was organized by the Chief of Staff to Tom Feeney (R-FL), who you may …

SD: Photoblog 1

I should probably be resting for a long day of work here, but instead, we have the first photoblog installment! So far no one has been attacked by any wild animals... but I here that Buffalo can charge pretty fast. You saw the photos from the rally before we boarded the buses for BWI last night, here is the full story. Early checkin began at 2pm, by 6, there was a line to the corner.

Making Opinion Journal Mad

WSJ Opinion Journal?  You mean the vomitous propagandists who said this: Langston Hughes, the poet who inspired John Kerry’s new campaign slogan, Let America be America again, turns out to be a favorite of communists. Yeah, those chumps.  Here’s what they have to say about DTripTV:  Laughter Isn’t the Best Medicine, Time for Prozac?  War, deficits, terrorism: We could all use a little political humor for relief, couldn’t we? Unfortunately, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee’s version of said relief—its …

So It Begins…

As the rift in the GOP has continued to grow, exemplified best by Hastert’s ignominious attack on John McCain, or perhaps the dueling set of talking points on Abu Ghraib for House and Senate GOPers, we have speculated that the Republican caucus might have to go into November picking sides between the McCain wing (which includes him and a couple other Senators thus far) and the DeLay wing (which has included just about everybody else).  Consider this the first …

New Majority

NYT: House Democrats do not usually like to talk about 1994, the year of their exile into the minority. It has been a bad memory, best left undisturbed.  But in a changing political climate, some Democrats are now taking a new look at their least favorite year and finding some heartening parallels with the current one. Democratic leaders say they believe they are poised to reverse the surprise Republican takeover of 1994, particularly if a continuing slip in public …

Encouragement for Sam Graves

A week ago we commended the heroic stand of Rep. Sam Graves (R-MO6) against the imminent threat of the “Goth Problem.”  Now the General gives Graves his highest honor.

Making Hannity Mad

We got Hannity’s “Cheap Shot of the Day”!  From his show last night: HANNITY: Finally tonight, if you were stuck, stranded on a desert island, would you want to be anywhere near a Democrat? Well, the rhetoric from the left continues to get worse and worse, and when that happens, well, that’s their example of the “Cheap Shot of the Day.” And we talk about liberals. Never one to miss an opportunity to bash Republicans, Democrats have now resorted …

Curious Phone Calls

From Keloland TV in South Dakota: School’s out for the summer. And if 17-year-old Tyler Crissman knows classwork as well as campaigning, he shouldn’t have to worry about his final exams. Yesterday, Crissman caught a political phone call that didn’t make the grade.  Crissman says, “At the end they didn’t identify themselves, so that’s what threw up a red flag in my mind.”  We listened to the call on a KELO employee’s answer machine and heard the same thing …

Drunk with Power II

We mentioned this about a month ago, but this in today’s San Antonio Current fleshes it out a little: ...Fill glass with crushed opposition and pour in the rum. Garnish with more money and serve with straws. A connection between Bacardi USA and three members of Texas’ Congressional delegation has sparked criticism from a watchdog group who alleges undisclosed money, undue influence, and anti-Cuban sentiment are behind a pro-Bacardi bill - not trademark protection.  U.S. Representatives Lamar Smith and …

Something to look forward to

Washington Post: The White House put government agencies on notice this month that if President Bush is reelected, his budget for 2006 may include spending cuts for virtually all agencies in charge of domestic programs, including education, homeland security and others that the president backed in this campaign year.  Administration officials had dismissed the significance of the proposed cuts when they surfaced in February as part of an internal White House budget office computer printout. At the time, officials …

Buyer’s Remorse

“I think it’s pretty grim, I think he has trashed the economy, and I think he has conducted foreign policy badly, and I think he is a bad President… I don’t know what he has done well.”  “My personal choice is [Sen.] John Kerry, partly because he has experienced war and has some notion of what it means to send men to die, as he was someone sent to die.” —David Richards, the member of Skull & Bones who …
