GOP 2012: Perry dropping out; Newt’s scorched-earth karma; and a Final Four debate; Update: Perry endorses “visionary” Newt

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 19, 2012 09:43 AM

Photoshop: Reader Jimmy D. Phew. So, it turns out: Rick Santorum won the Iowa caucus. Newt Gingrich’s ex-wife, Marianne, is getting her revenge. Live by scorched-earth. Die by scorched-earth, eh, Newt? And Rick Perry is reportedly set to drop out today — removing another body from another GOP debate tonight in South Carolina and freeing […]

GOP 2012: The Hold Your Nose Tracker

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 17, 2011 10:14 AM

Photoshop: Reader Jimmy D. Yes, I’m still struggling. Like many of you, I am still carefully weighing all the costs and benefits of each declared GOP candidate. As the candidates continue highlighting each other’s unsavory left-wing alliances, I thought it might be helpful to compile a Hold Your Nose Tracker of the current top four […]

Dede Scozzafava goes to work…for Andrew Cuomo

By Michelle Malkin  •  January 4, 2011 02:10 PM

I hope Newt Gingrich and all the GOP Beltway groups that dumped millions of grass-roots dollars into the radical Big Labor, ACORN-friendly, Margaret Sanger Award-winning tax & spender’s appalling NY-23 campaign are proud. From NY Democrat Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s press release today: Governor Andrew M. Cuomo today announced the following appointments and nominations to senior […]

Ladies of the Right vs. Beltway GOP boyz club; Plus: Fire From the Heartland

By Michelle Malkin  •  September 16, 2010 10:25 AM

The times they are a-changin’ — and it’s ladies of the Right who are kicking ass and naming names. Five items for your viewing and reading pleasure: * Jeri Thompson smacks GOP poobahs and pooh-pooh-ers upside the head: While they may not be intending to be sexist, the message, the attitude and whining sure make […]

Rejected RNC solicitation of the day

By Michelle Malkin  •  April 5, 2010 01:48 PM

A small number of readers have e-mailed to complain that I criticize the GOP too much. The vast majority of readers, however, have been disgusted with the Beltway Republican (un)leadership for a long time. And the rejected RNC solicitation forms keep coming in. There are so many that I’ve created a whole new blog category […]

Did Doug Hoffman concede too early?

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 12, 2009 10:55 AM

You’ll remember on election night a few weeks ago, upstate New York was reporting all sorts of ballot-counting glitches even as NY-23 conservative candidate Doug Hoffman conceded the race. Now, the Syracuse Post-Standard reports that the race has tightened considerably — with thousands of military and overseas ballots still to be counted: Conservative Doug Hoffman […]

Good news, bad news for the GOP

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 11, 2009 11:23 AM

The good news for the GOP comes in a new Gallup poll showing Republicans edging about Democrats ahead of 2010 — and independents breaking the elephants’ way: Republicans have moved ahead of Democrats by 48% to 44% among registered voters in the latest update on Gallup’s generic congressional ballot for the 2010 House elections, after […]

Making sure the message sticks: More rejected RNC forms

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 4, 2009 12:00 PM

Conservatives are making sure the RNC and NRCC hear their voices. As I mentioned this morning, readers continue to e-mail me copies of the rejected RNC solicitation forms they’ve sent back to Washington. GOP offices better prepare for a new onslaught. As I said earlier this morning, the repercussions of NY-23 will be felt well […]

The GOP elite’s $1 million object lesson — and the message of NY-23

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 4, 2009 02:14 AM

Conservatives owe NY-23 candidate Doug Hoffman immeasurable gratitude. He overcame impossible odds (single digits just a month ago) to come within two points of defeating Democrat Bill Owens. Hoffman had zero name recognition. National Republican Party officials dumped nearly $1 million into the race on behalf of radical leftist GOP candidate Dede Scozzafava, who then […]

Ballot Watch: Waiting for the results that everyone tells us mean nothing; Update: GOP sweep in Va.; voting machine glitches in NY-23; Obama says he’s not watching; Update: GOP gov wins in NJ/Va; Update: Hoffman concedes

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 3, 2009 07:05 PM

Guess it’ll be an early night for all the Democrat water-carriers in the media who have already filed their preemptive pieces downplaying whatever happens tonight after the polls close and the ballots are counting. Here’s a bit of the Obama-as-a-factor-but-not-as-much-as-we-want-you-to-think analysis of exit poll results. Politicker reports on the return of “It’s the economy, stupid:” […]

Suicidal tendencies: The GOP and its deadly alliances

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 2, 2009 04:15 PM

I noted earlier this morning the GOP’s need to purge its suicidal ACORN/WFP/SEIU alliances. Last month, I spotlighted Republicans in Illinois who continue to take gobs of money from ACORN’s alter ego, the SEIU. Anita MonCrief has a related must-read in the Hot Air Green Room on “How NY23 Revealed the Republicans’ ACORN Problem.” Excerpt: […]

How Patrick Gaspard, Obama’s ACORN/WFP/SEIU “air traffic controller,” intervened in NY-23

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 2, 2009 10:43 AM

No surprises here. Radical leftist Dede Scozzafava, the GOP NY-23 candidate who dropped out over the weekend, was an ACORN-embracing, Working Families Party-consorting, Big Labor crony. White House political director Patrick Gaspard is a leading ACORN/SEIU/Working Families Party operative from New York. The Washington Post reports that Gaspard played a critical role in Scozzafava’s endorsement […]

How Scozzafava repays NRCC and RNC

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 1, 2009 05:54 PM

Hey, how did that six-figure RNC donation to the NRCC plus $85,000 to the New York GOP plus nearly half-million-dollar investment in advertising and other independent expenditures on behalf of radical leftist Dede Scozzafava work out? She repaid the GOP by endorsing Democrat candidate Bill Owens. Some gratitude, eh? “Since beginning my campaign, I have […]

Snort-worthy spectacle of the day: Valerie Jarrett decrying “extreme” GOP

By Michelle Malkin  •  November 1, 2009 12:15 PM

Yes, the woman who bragged about recruiting Marxist rabble-rouser Van Jones is lambasting conservatives for spurning radical leftist ACORN/Big Labor embracer Dede Scozzafava: White House senior adviser Valerie Jarrett said Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that the rise of a Conservative Party challenger in a closely watched upstate New York House election shows that the […]

Rejected RNC solicitation form of the day

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 28, 2009 03:37 PM

It’s becoming a regular feature here at michellemalkin.com — disgusted conservative readers sending photos and forwarding their “no, hell no!” responses to national Republican Party fund-raisers. They’re sending back Newt Gingrich’s books and telling the Beltway GOP to “Wake up!” Many others I’ve received are, um, unprintable. Today’s rejected RNC solicitation form of the day […]

Colorado Republicans stand up for Doug Hoffman; more GOP support pours in

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 28, 2009 07:11 AM

Received this statement from a group of conservative Colorado Republican legislators who are lending their support to NY-23 conservative candidate Doug Hoffman. They tell me they “hope the effect will be to energize other Republican state legislators around the country to do the same:” Colorado Republican legislators Sen. Scott Renfroe, Sen. Kevin Lundberg, Sen. Greg […]

Look what Scozzafava’s favorite ACORN front group is up to now

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 27, 2009 09:13 AM

The Working Families Party, an ACORN front group whose ballot line Newt Gingrich-endorsed radical leftist Dede Scozzafava has embraced on multiple occasions, is up to no good again. The NYPost reports: The labor-backed Working Families Party has engaged in “an audacious scheme to violate the law” to help the party’s favored political candidates get elected, […]

Newt and Dede sitting in a tree, erasing lines between “R” and “D” (TobyToons via RedState): The latest Club for Growth poll on NY-23 shows conservative candidate Doug Hoffman continuing his surge over the liberal Democrat and the radical leftist “R” in the race. (Caveats: Sample size is small and CfG is pro-Hoffman. Still. Hoffman’s […]

Newt for 2012? No, thanks.

By Michelle Malkin  •  October 26, 2009 09:47 AM

The most prominent GOP endorser of radical leftist NY-23 congressional candidate Dede Scozzafava is openly musing about running for president in 2012. No, thanks: Callista and I are going to think about this in February 2011. And we are going to reach out to all of our friends around the country. And we’ll decide, if […]
