    First, it was a Florida congressional race. Now? A Pennsylvania special election for the state Senate. The Citizens Alliance of Pennsylvania scores a major win — and yes, the winner says he heard about Obamacare. Scott Wagner is a Pennsylvania state Senator this morning. It wasn’t supposed to happen. In a stunning upset, the York County businessman, taking a stand against the state’s political establishment of both parties, made state history by winning a special election for the Pennsylvania state Senate — in a write-in landslide, defeating both the Republican and Democrat nominees. Wagner captured 48 percent of the vote....

    Talking Points Memo ^ | 9/6/2012 | Eric Kleefeld
    Republicans signaled this week that they might have given up hope in two important swing states. TPM Slideshow: Romney Takes The Stage At The RNC The Romney campaign and conservative groups like Crossroads GPS have pulled TV ads in Michigan, Romney’s home state, according to the Detroit News. Nor are the campaign and super PACs running advertising in Pennsylvania, after unleashing a barrage there over the past five months. It is still possible for groups to purchase TV advertising in either state at a later date. The PollTracker Averages show President Obama ahead 48.9 percent to 45.4 percent in Michigan,...

    Soledad O'Brien Caught Reading Liberal Blog During Heated Debate With Romney Adviser By Noel Sheppard Created 08/13/2012 - 10:31pm Can CNN's Soledad O'Brien make her sources any more apparent than she did Monday night? While filling in for Anderson Cooper, O'Brien was actually caught on screen looking at an article from the far-left website Talking Points Memo to assist her in a heated debate with Romney campaign senior adviser Barbara Comstock (video follows with commentary): Ali Akbar at Viral Read reported Monday: During her interview with Virginia House of Delegates Republican member Barbara Comstock, O’Brien became visibly flustered and was...
  • Who Doomed Sarah Palin's Presidential Dream? (Barf Alert)

    Talking Points Memo ^ | Tuesday, August 30, 2011 | Benjy Sarlin
    Sarah Palin is expected to make up her mind about a presidential campaign by the end of September, but it's not clear it matters much either way. Polls show relatively few Republicans clamoring for a Palin run on a national level as the one-time supernova is eclipsed by a crowded presidential contest and an array of new rising stars. About two-thirds of Republicans say they're satisfied with the current primary field. It feels as if Palin's fabled 2012 run, a source of fervent speculation since before the 2008 contest even ended, has already gone out with a whimper. Palin is...

    Michael Savage is wrong. Liberalism isn't just a mental disorder. It's the result of having a lobotomy with a rusty and dull scalpel. Here's my proof: Recently, the commie fingersniffers at Talking Points Memo ran a story about how some bougerois socialist from academia, Susan Feinberg of Rutgers, "caught" Republican Congressman Paul Ryan with two bottles of $350 wine at his table at the swanky Bistro Bis in Babylon...er, uh....Washington DC. The "outraged", and according to Ryan, drunk as hell, Feinberg demanded to know if the men Ryan was eating with were lobbyists. (They weren't. They were economists Cliff Asness...
  • Santorum Backtracks On McCain Comments: I Respect His Service But Torture Still Works

    Rick Santorum backtracked on his comments that Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) may not "understand how enhanced interrogation works" if he doesn't believe it led to the capture and killing of Osama bin Laden. Santorum said in a statement Wednesday that he disagrees with McCain's view that torture doesn't work, but "for anyone to infer my disagreement with Senator McCain's policy position lessens my respect for his service to our country and all he had to endure is outrageous and unfortunate." McCain last week gave a speech on the Senate floor, which he underlined in a number of other media appearances,...
  • TPM-Report: House GOP's Constitution Reading Could Cost Over $1 Million (HURL!)

    Now this is a laugh. As Vanity Fair reports, the House GOP leadership's symbolic gesture of reading the Constitution on the House floor today -- in an effort to please their Tea Party base who decry virtually all of the Obama administration's policies as both a monumental waste of money and, more importantly, an affront to our founding document -- could also itself cost a lot of money. The magazine asked an expert on government waste, and he said in part: The amount I get is nearly $1.1 million. $1,071,872.87, to be exact, though of course this is more back-of-the-envelope...

    Politico ^ | 10/30/2009 | Michael Calderone
    While the Obama administration engages in an ongoing battle with Fox News over its conservative ideological leanings, self-described “progressive” media outlets are increasing their presence at the White House. The latest evidence was the announcement Friday that Talking Points Memo will become part of the White House press pool, taking its place with The Washington Post, New York Times and established newspaper companies like Scripps Howard and Tribune in ensuring a constant media presence whenever President Barack Obama goes somewhere. TPM just opened a Washington bureau this month, and its editor, Josh Marshall, told POLITICO that the decision to join...

    And it didn't take long. I always make it a point to re-post on at least one "left" blog. I do this in order to gain their perspective and judge it against my own. The problem is, left sites don't seem to tolerate adverse views as much a conservative sites do. Below is the post at Talking Points Memo that apparently did me in. It was a post concerning my main political interest: Our two-party system tends to divide the people to achieve the political interests of the few, instead of bringing people together for the common good of all.

    How the iPod Will Change the Face of Computer Security Date: Dec 1, 2005 By Bruce Potter. Apple probably didn't intend it, but the iPod will likely prove to be an important stepping stone into solving a problem that has faced computer scientists for more than 30 years.

By making the iPod incredibly user-friendly and providing affordable content, Apple has put more than 28 million iPods in the hands of consumers all over the world (with 10 million more expected to be sold before...
