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 […]

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 […]
