Lessons/Differences from Pa-12 and Mass Senate

Chuck Todd, politico and the DCCC continue to spin this election bigtime. However if you look at the factors deep within this race you see that this race was not the Scott Brown race, in fact it was a race that would be tough for a republican. Lets look at the facts: 1. Statewide race … Continue reading Lessons/Differences from Pa-12 and Mass Senate

Full marks to Morning Joe on two things this morning…

1. They are not giving Blumenthal a break on the "misspoke" business you can see Mika is simply disgusted because she knows the person and apparently expected better from him. This is consistent with the Allahpundit report of yesterday. Then again even the NYT editorial page didn't support him. 2. When talking about pa-12 they … Continue reading Full marks to Morning Joe on two things this morning…

Chuck Todd Declares if the GOP doesn’t win pa-12 for the first time since 1972…

...it's a sign of weakness in a swing district. In this he is reporting and repeating DCCC spin: Public Policy Polling, a North Carolina firm, released a survey Monday showing Republican candidate Tim Burns leading Democratic candidate Mark Critz by only one point, 48 to 47. I noticed some conservative blogs reporting that Burns had … Continue reading Chuck Todd Declares if the GOP doesn’t win pa-12 for the first time since 1972…

pa-12 not mentioned…A coincidence I’m sure…

I've been mentioning how Morning Joe and Politico et/al seemed to have suddenly discovered Pa-12 when the polls were trending in their direction: the plan apparently is to set the race now that the polls favor the dems as a possible or probable loss, so if they win, it becomes a HUGE win for democrats … Continue reading pa-12 not mentioned…A coincidence I’m sure…

Brinkley is on the job..

over in PA-12 doing short interviews and highlighting more interesting ads. Huntley who was busy attending a pair of First communions thinks that highlighting the ad is a mistake, since if a person goes to Factcheck.org to see what it says it shows a critique both the Critz ad AND this Burns one. However the … Continue reading Brinkley is on the job..

Speaking of people who are not smiling in Pa-12 Crizz smile is fading…

not only because of GOP star of the year Scott Brown's appearance on his behalf but because of a of a new twist. Pittsburgh TV station WPGH has suspended the latest ad for Democrat Mark Critz for making false claims. The ad by the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee falsely claimed that Republican Tim Burns supports … Continue reading Speaking of people who are not smiling in Pa-12 Crizz smile is fading…

PA-12 is out but GA-4 gets a slight boost $830 to go

As it is already Friday and there is only 4 days left before the Election in PA i've concluded that PA-12 will have to do without the presence of a Sicilian in a Fedora. Lucky for Tim Burns he had a much more popular visitor from Massachusetts and Robert Stacy provided the Fedora. Hopefully it … Continue reading PA-12 is out but GA-4 gets a slight boost $830 to go

You know Morning Joe finally noticed Pa-12 today

and politico called it a bellwether race. Strangely enough all the time that Tim Burns was leading it didn't make the cut, but now that the latest poll shows Critz leading it becomes critical. I could be totally wrong about this, Politico on Morning Joe mentioned that it could go either way but I'm shocked … Continue reading You know Morning Joe finally noticed Pa-12 today

Talk about working in mysterious ways…

This morning it is really interesting to see the level of coincidence yesterday. First of all because I had failed to raise the money to get to Pa-12 I was in Fitchburg instead of being on the road. Because of this I went to morning Mass for Ascension Thursday. Because of this I ran into … Continue reading Talk about working in mysterious ways…

My Pa-12 prospects are dropping like a rock…

Still only $50 in the kitty. I've had the car checked and struts replaced. ($225) an I'm told I need two new tires before I even think about such a trip. I won't be asking the readers for this since they are things I would need no matter what, but it very much looks like … Continue reading My Pa-12 prospects are dropping like a rock…

We will spend the afternoon in the district knocking on doors reminding voters to come out and vote for Tim Burns in this pivotal … Continue reading The Exodus of activists to Pa-12 is under way

Still $440 away from affording Pa-12

Pa-12 still hasn't seemed to capture the imagination of the readership but things seems to be happening there: The polling shows a very close race — with Burns in the lead. That has Democrats worried about how other normally-safe districts might turn out in November. That fear has come out in Critz’ campaigning, where he … Continue reading Still $440 away from affording Pa-12
