News and notes on the upcoming fall elections

Posted by: ST on October 2, 2006 at 4:52 pm

Jim Geraghty posts a few things conservatives ought to keep in mind as we head into the 2006 elections regarding turnout, polls, and security moms.

Hugh Hewitt has a book recommendation for those who are on the fence regarding this year’s elections – and provides a reminder that it’s best for this country if we don’t have a House Speaker Pelosi.

— As always, Real Clear Politics and Election Projection are up to speed on the latest poll numbers for House and Senate races. BTW, that reminds me: have you checked out the Rightroots campaign yet? If not, now is a great time to do so.

— I mentioned in my prior post (and worth noting again) the following link from a NBC news story that discusses the very real possibility, according to new poll numbers, of the Dems taking control of the Senate. Per new polls, five Senate races are toss-ups.

— Lefty Sebastian Mallaby writes in today’s WaPo that Democrats are a party without principles and wonders if a Congress in control of the DNC is something to get excited about. (Hat tip: John Hawkins)

— How are Republicans doing on TradeSports Trading and Betting website? Allah has the latest.

    It’s going to be an interesting election. With things this close, and with the Democrats as insanely frustrated and with their “ends justifies the means” mentality, expect this to be one of the dirtiest elections in US history. And expect record amounts of voter fraud from the Democrats, all the while screaming about Republican vote fraud that somehow never manages to be proven, and while doing their damndest to disenfranchise military votes from overseas, all the better to preserve democracy you see.

    If I don’t climb a water tower with panty hose on my head and with my M14 with a backpack full of magazines out of sheer frustration at having to listen to the Dems whine and moan and lie for another month plus, I’ll be watching with keen interest.

    As a marketing professional I read the Geraghty article with great interest. If you know anything about Karl Rove’s long background in database and direct marketing you will have faith in all of this. His theories are the key ingredients in recent republican election srategies and tactics.

    He is not just Bush’s brain, he is the republican brain as well. The man is a true marketing genius and that’s why he is so despised among the “intellectual” leftist democrats who think they’re all do damn smart. He continues to confound them every step of the way. I hope Karl Rove is with us for a long long time. ^:)^
