Senate Dems Forget To Hit The Mute Button

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Democrats

I’d argue that nearly all politicians do the following, which is nothing more than organize their messaging so they get on the same page, but only Dems would figure out a way to get caught doing it.

Michelle Bachmann “Lit Up The Gathering” In Iowa

By Justin Gardner | Related entries in Iowa, Republicans, Video

At least that’s what Haley Barbour is saying about her appearance at Rep. Steve King’s conference…and after watching this video I tend to agree. She really knows how to rile up a conservative crowd. Lots of good old fashiony call and response speechifying. So big deal, right? Well, when it comes to the caucuses in […]
