So the rank and file voter wants an idiot in the Oval Office?

From the Washington Post, speaking about Jeb Bush:

“I think he is a talented, credible, thinking leader,” DeMoss said. “The question is, how much appetite is there in the Republican Party and in the general electorate for that?”

What does DeMoss think we want? A stupid lemming with no talent or credibility?


SC Senate District 12–Bright vs. Hawkins

I recently found out my SC State Senate district had changed.  I was formerly in the 5th Senate district, and my Senator was Phillip Shoopman.  I thought my choice in the upcoming primary was between Tom Corbin, Amanda Somers, and Wyatt Miler, who are all competing for the seat being vacated by Shoopman.

However, without much announcement, when district lines were redrawn post 2010 Census, the 12th district from Spartanburg was extended to include my area in eastern Greenville County.  Turns out my Senate candidates are Lee Bright and John Hawkins.   Continue reading “SC Senate District 12–Bright vs. Hawkins”

Lost All Respect for Drudge Report!

Drudge Campaigns for RomneyA few weeks ago, Rick Santorum made some headlines for claiming that Matt Drudge’s “news” site Drudge Report was “showing for Romney.”  This was based on the headlines Drudge was running, that were supposedly biased toward Romney, and painting Santorum in a negative light.  While that may have been debatable then, all doubt was removed today.  At the top of the screen (I’ve included a screen shot), in the area used for breaking news, Drudge posted two different links to “Santorum endorses Romney” pages.  One was a copy of the news release from the 2008 Romney campaign, and the other was a link to a 2012 Romney YouTube video (posted a few days ago) that played a 2008 campaign clip of Santorum making the same endorsement.

So there you have it.  Drudge linking directly to Romney campaign talking points.  We’re not even talking about stories about Romney talking points–just plain and simple campaign material!  The pathetic side of it, it that it’s not even a new talking point.  Romney has been using that item for months now.

Jeff Duncan keeps racking up endorsements

Jeff Duncan, candidate for U.S. Congress from South Carolina’s 3rd district, has been racking up endorsements on a regular basis lately.  Just in the last couple months, the list includes South Carolina state Senator Shane Massey, who at one point was an opponent in this primary; the well-known Erick Erickson of; former U.S. Senator Fred Thompson (R-TN); two conservative advocacy groups, Conservatives of America and Club for Growth; as well as the Independence Caucus, a very conservative group dedicated to putting constitutionally-minded candidates into Congress.  Some quotes:

Story of a Bumper Sticker

This morning I did something I’ve never done before:   I put a political campaign bumper sticker on my vehicle.   In the 25+ years I’ve been driving, I’ve never done so.   I’ve always insisted my vehicle be free of such statements.  Why would I change after all these years? Because last night I met Jim Lee.

Let me give you some background on myself.   Continue reading “Story of a Bumper Sticker”
