Contentions

Flotsam and Jetsam

John McCain knows where they live — elitists, that is.

You knew this ad was coming. But it leaves off the “best” part (“it’s not gonna be apparent initially, it’s not gonna be apparent that we’re right”).

Barack Obama nails down that all important Iran endorsement. The mullahs probably didn’t like McCain’s VP pick or were disturbed by the tone of the campaign.

The most intriguing part of the ACORN scandal: they didn’t register that many new voters. The Obama camp better not have counted those people in its turnout projections.

If you didn’t have enough to worry about liberal Democrats may come after your 401K. Hey, don’t scoff – it’ll be worth something again one day.

Newt Gingrich compares the MSM to Pravda. With all due respect, Pravda was more subtle.

Is the youth vote going to disappoint again? (Like Lucy’s football, they are never quite there as promised.)

Well, Jake Tapper is a lonely voice of honesty.

I don’t often agree with Campbell Brown. But this is one of these times.

This may explain why the Department of Justice is slow off the mark and more concerned with prosecuting speech cases rather than voter fraud. Those Republicans did a poor job of hiring based on party affiliation.

CNN’s explanation of the botched quote from a Byron York piece is rather weak. If a GOP politician tried it they’d blare the headline: “Clumsy Cover-Up.”

This seems to be a scandal in-the-making and a surefire way for Obama to lose more votes among pro-military Virginians unless he steps in to insist the military ballots be counted.

Soren Dayton has the low-down on Ballot-gate.

More funny business with donors and credit card fraud at the Obama camp.

George Will misses the point in telling government to keep their mitts off huge university endowments: universities which rack up these huge endowments and gouge students on tuition enjoy tax-exempt status. Take that away, and I accept they can do what they want with their billions. (And, by the way,  if Bob Jones University lost its tax exempt-status, why do Ivy League schools with race preferences get to keep theirs?)

The Chamber of Commerce figures out exactly what’s at stake with a filibuster-proof Democratic Senate majority: their members’ livelihood.
