GA Court Dismisses Obama’s Motion to Dismiss Ballot Challenge

Many who have opposed questioning Obama’s eligibility for President have often referred those who have questioned to legally begin questioning such eligibility issues at the beginning of a campaign season, and I think, in this instance, the opposition was and is correct.

Lt. Col. @ScottBrownMA: Kirk Won’t Be 60th Vote After Election, Say GOP Lawyers; “Voter Bomb” Commences

A quick poll update: HotAir.com ran a number of poll models on the Massachusetts special election.

Of course, as a commenter pointed out in a previous […]

Via RealClearPolitics: Coakley loses one-in-five Democrats to Brown, while the Republican state senator has 94 percent of Republicans behind him.

Lt. Col. @ScottBrownMA: All Internals Show Brown Leading; Cambridge Police Endorse

At this point in the Massachusetts special election (to be held Tuesday, January 19, 2010), both the GOP and the Democrats show internal polling numbers with the State Senator ahead.

Brown-Out*: Coakley: No Religious Freedom in ERs; Terrible AG Record; More Polling Data

Excellent video (huge h/t JammieWearingFool), above, in full post mode, to go along with an earlier video posting. She wasn’t satisfied in disclaiming any knowledge in the “Reporter Down” incident, nor in making a strike-out against Fenway Park fans. Nope; instead, she had to take it one giant leap further (h/t GatewayPundit): Democrat Martha Coakley was […]

Federal Budget: “Unprecedented Size, Scope”; GOP Responds To President’s Challenge

The quote comes from an article in USA Today.

“Porkulus Maximus” Bill Passes House 246-183 (No GOP Support); Healthcare Proposal Unearthed; Now Only 60 Votes?

The fact that the so-called stimulus bill has been pushed through the national Bicarmeral Legislature at breaknik speed without due legislative processes in both chambers may not be known by the American people, but even Democrats are concerned about how this apparent lack of oversight on bills will continue playing out.

The Senate’s Turn on Stimulus: MoveOn.org, SEIU, others Pressuring Senators

There are many reasons to believe that only a slight handful of GOP Senators are going to be proverbially peeled away from the caucus to vote for this thing.
