In a final round of primaries before the November mid-terms, several non-establishment conservative candidates won again.  This narrative has been going on for months now across the country, but last night in one GOP primary, the anti-establishment fervor may have cost the Republicans a winnable seat in Delaware and a majority in the Senate.  (more…)

A few weeks ago the Obama administration came out with some claims about how many jobs the stimulus bill had created to date. I heard some news agencies, Rush Limbaugh, and others pick apart the numbers. I sort of ignored the story and thought that it was a little petty. Then yesterday, I caught wind of a few states that noticed there were jobs created in non-existing congressional districts.

Capitol Building - NightIt’s that time of the month when pollsters begin releasing their latest surveys into the national psyche of current events and hot topics.  For the most part, the latest numbers are not too surprising.  Obama is still rating favorably (51%).  Americans are still skeptical of health care reform (39% For; 41% Against).  But there were a few interesting items reported. Foremost, 80% of Americans say they are satisfied with their health care. But that’s not even the most shocking part of that high statistic. (more…)
