A brilliant piece from Alexa Shrugged which helps educate DE Senate candidate Coons and the reactionary (in this case ignorant) left about the First Amendment and the separation of church and state.  Nicely done!

According to polling cited in RealClear Politics of U.S. House races across the country, as things currently stand it would appear that 186 seats will likely go to Democrats, 210 seats are leaning toward the Republicans and there are 39 toss-up seats.  Best case scenario with a Republican sweet appears to be 249-186 GOP majority.

Battle for the Senate

October 9, 2010

RealClearPolitics polling of US Senate races from across the country.   As things stand now, its 48-46 with Democrats ahead and 6 toss-up states to decide the majority.  It would seem that under the best case scenario outlined here, GOP could possibly achieve a 52-48 majority if they won ALL toss-up states.

Real Clear Politics outlines the state of polling in Governor’s races across the country.  Regardless, it looks like a big swing toward Republican control of Executive branches.  At the ceiling, it looks like there could be as many as 34 Republican Governors (and 16 Democrats) when all is said and done.

In addition to the movie related to the creation and development of Facebook, the “Superman” movie is the most powerful and important film being played.  It should be in more theaters.  A columnist for the Detroit News wrote a fantastic piece about the challenges of changing the significant flaws in our educational system given the political power and financial giving of teacher’s unions to politicians.  Unions don’t exist to promote good schools.  They exist solely to promote more money for teachers.

What Democratic Recovery?

October 6, 2010

Democrats and the left have been trying to stem the conservative, anti-establishment and anti-Democrat tide sweeping the nation by suggesting that things were tightening and not looking as bad as previously believed.  It was a deliberate and widespread strategy designed to stop the bleeding.  In reality, the prospects for Republicans haven’t looked this good in decades.  The anti-establishment mood is much stronger than the same period in 1994 when Republicans swept into control of Congress.  I will say that there will be interesting debates on the right and among Republicans if Christine O’Donnell loses her race, as expected, and Republicans fail to win a majority by one seat.

Personally, I’d have mixed feelings.  I’d prefer to see Democrats out of the majority.  But a 51-49 split (either way) would make it very difficult for that body to pass anything significant.  And it’s important to send a message to liberal Republicans (even in liberal Districts) that while you must represent your district, you best not completely disrespect the ideals that are the foundation of the Party.  It will be interesting.

Here’s a piece from the Atlantic questioning the Democrats’ claims:

Contrary to popular belief, Sarah Palin is not as conservatively “pure” as many of her followers would like to believe.  She is cutting deals left and right across the country and if it’s necessary to abandon the best conservative to feather her own nest … she’s demonstrated a willingness to do so.   The story below demonstrates a tiny taste of what is occurring in a big way.  I’m a Palin fan … as a messenger … and a strong woman … and I agree on most issues with her.  But we’ve just elected one inexperienced President and it’s been a disaster.  I certainly will not support electing another who didn’t even finish a full term as Governor.
