My brother was interviewed by NPR on the topic.  You can listen to or read a transcript of the interview here.

So Says Camille Paglia: Liberal Democrats are going to wake up from their sadomasochistic, anti-Palin orgy with a very big hangover. The evil genie released during this sorry episode will not so easily go back into its bottle. A shocking level of irrational emotionalism and at times infantile rage was exposed at the heart of […]

From Unfair Park: By now, you’re probably aware that a week after Election Day, the dust hasn’t settled in Irving, where three-term incumbent Linda Harper-Brown and Democratic challenger Bob Romano are still tussling over who gets to rep Texas House District 105. Knocked out by a mere 20 votes, Romano’s seeking a recount: “In the […]

It is, but the real interesting race has yet to be waged….the race for Texas House Speaker.  Tom Craddick has a slim majority in the Chamber…76-74, but will he survive?  Paul Burka at Texas Monthly has been blogging about the race, just keep scrolling.

From Capitolfax: * Chicago’s legendary “Gimme what’s coming to me” politics is on full public display… Asked what she expected an Obama presidency to mean to her West Side ward, Ald. Emma Mitts (37th) replied, “One word: money. You’re supposed to take care of home first, aren’t you?” There is no shame in Illinois politics. […]

From Capitolfax: ” I’m still trying to absorb all of this. There are so many things to contemplate, many of them personal. The fact that I’ve known him for years, even since before he was elected to the Illinois Senate. The private conversation we had long ago when I tried to discourage him from running […]

Jonah Goldberg: “Look, I expect to be one of the most severe critics of the Obama administration and the Democrats generally in the years ahead (though I sincerely hope I won’t find that necessary). But Obama ran a brilliant race and he should be congratulated for it. . . . God bless America, and may […]

According to FWST PoliTex Blog: The long lines from this morning are all gone and most polling places are fairly quiet as of 1 p.m. “My educated guess is we don’t have any lines out there right now,” said Tarrant County Elections Administrator Steve Raborn. Campaign volunteers at a couple of Fort Worth polling places […]

My dad is taking his 1963 Cadillac to the Obama election night party in Chicago tonight.  It is about a three hour drive from my dad’s home to downtown Chicago.  They expect a million people to show up in Chicago tonight and aren’t allowing any vehicles close into the site, so I hope my dad […]

Jerry Lee Phillips sent me an email over the weekend giving me a scoop that his campaign was running their first TV ad on Sunday night.  I apologize to Jerry Lee and his campaign for not getting the word out sooner, but I spent the weekend at Lewisville Lake relaxing on our boat for a […]
