Palin -Deb Fischer

Sarah Palin’s Latest Triumph? Deb Fischer Wins Nebraska GOP Primary
Rich Galen on how Palin is finally maturing into a cheerleader who doesn’t overwhelm—and her potential power in Tampa.

Res Ipsa Loquitur

If Palin picks her spots through the rest of this cycle as well as she did in Nebraska, she might, without spending a dime as a presidential candidate, be the second biggest name in Tampa.

A Nice Crowd

So far, Obama has failed to fill a single venue on his 2012 election tour.  Aides say that it was miscommunication, and they've found the answer.  Packed houses from here on!

You know where I stand on this.  There's not enough schadenfreude in the universe to make this good for me.   That said, no matter what side you want to take on this new piece of evidence [oh, pul-leeeeeze], one thing is for certain.  Barry Obama Soetoro is a liar.  Here's Brietbart.

67-year-old Robert Gene White "enjoyed several lap dances" on a Friday night at the Red Parrot Strip Club in El Paso. 

However, when employees came to collect payment from White he was "unresponsive," according to another station, KVIA. The local sheriff's department said club workers and paramedics made several unsuccessful attempts to revive White.

The sheriff's office said it suspects White died of natural causes and does not suspect foul play in the incident. [LAP]

You haven’t heard of John Wolfe?

Obama may lose the Democratic primary
In Arkansas that is. After narrowly besting a federal inmate in the West Virginia Democratic primary, President Obama is just up 7 points on a no-name candidate in the Arkansas Democratic primary, reports TheDC’s Alex Pappas:

“You haven’t heard of John Wolfe because the obscure Democratic candidate for president has raised less than $500, can’t afford radio or TV ads and hasn’t gotten much press. Yet miraculously, a poll released this week shows Wolfe trailing President Barack Obama in the Arkansas Democratic primary — occurring next week — by just seven points.”

This is just embarrassing for the president. The primary takes place Tuesday. [full]

Doing the "tough things "- MD style

Maryland My Christmas Tree   

Res Ipsa Loquitur

The Maryland General Assembly passed a $260 million tax increase Wednesday as it adjourned from a three-day special session that ended with Gov. Martin O'Malley saying he will bring lawmakers back for another session this summer.

“We’ve not only been able to do the tough things on revenues to balance the budget, but we’ve also been able to protect our priorities,” said Mr. O'Malley, a Democrat. [Wa Times]

I cannot begin to describe the mounting animus I have for this state's smarmy government.  The creation of which is our collective fault.  El Jefe has pulled stakes and gone to Virginia. My preference would be a cabin in Idaho or Waco. 

* "Maryland My Christmas Tree" is the creation of the UVA  Pep Band, infamously presented at  half-time  of  a  1974 MD drubbing of their football team.  Missing from this transcript are verses about crooked  MD politicians, most notably convicted Gov (D) Marvin Mandel  ( " Road to Mandel's Lay").  So outraged were the MD Assembly that they threatened to scuttle further participation of any UVA band at any MD athletic event.  I assume part of UVA's mea culpas included excising the crooked politician parts.  Too bad.

Soros Buying Gun Mfgrs? NO.

Who Is Buying American Firearms Companies? Why?

Q: Does George Soros own the company buying many firms that make guns and ammunition?

A: No. Contrary to a fanciful claim made in a viral email, the Freedom Group is not linked to the liberal billionaire. The National Rifle Association says the real owners are “strong supporters” of gun rights. [Fact Check]

I received this e-mail and got all jumpy and twitchy.  I checked it out before bringing Mr. Soros into my basement for questioning. Don't want another Judge Crater mistake. Ahem.
