Will Things Stay the Same?

Friday, April 30th, 2010

As much as we talk about voter anger and frustration, I’m wondering how much of that will actually manifest itself on Election Day? I base this question on a couple bits of data.  First, for all the talk about voter anger the number of people voting absentee in the 2010 midterm elections hasn’t really changed […]

A new poll for the Republican race for the U.S. Senate commissioned by IPFW and conducted by Survey USA is expected out tomorrow by noon.  No official word yet on what it will reveal, but the chatter is that Marlin Stutzman and John Hostettler are fighting for first place, Dan Coats is next and Don […]

IPS Skirts Open Door Law

Wednesday, April 28th, 2010

Well, I have to give it to Indianapolis Public Schools, while they are not the brightest bulbs in the socket, they did manage to get around the state’s Open Door Laws and illustrate another reason why the taxpaying public has no confidence in them. You may recall my blog post last month about a Michigan […]

Back to the Future

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

I originally wrote this blog post the day after the 2006 primary.  I thought it was pretty interesting  and worthy of re-posting.  Back then Indiana had 19% turnout for the election.  I find it fascinating that the more things change, the more they tend to stay the same. *********** What a difference a day makes, […]

When Democrats Attack

Tuesday, April 27th, 2010

Indiana Democrats are pressing their attack on former U.S. Senator and Ambassador Dan Coats.  You can see it in their latest Internet ad. I doubt many Republican primary voters will see this, however I get the strange feeling they will starting May 5th if Coats is his party’s nominee.

Monday, April 26th, 2010

There’s nothing like a play on words.  I got a news release this afternoon from Indiana Right to Life saying it’s rescinding its endorsement of  Republican U.S. Senate candidate Richard Behney. According to the release, Behney reportedly made some unflattering remarks about some of the organizations pro-life leadership… “One of the things I’m most disappointed […]

Monday, April 26th, 2010

For the past few days, I’ve blogged about Arizona’s efforts to crackdown on illegal immigration.  Unfortunately, the state is violating the U.S. Constitution in the process.  So, how do you crack down on illegal immigration in a lawful, constitutional manner?  Easy.  There are lots of things Arizona can do. The state can refuse to do […]

Sunday Morning Politics

Sunday, April 25th, 2010

Once again, I awake Sunday to lots of interesting political tidbits of gossip, rumor, innuendo, etc. etc.  So please allow me to share.  This information is a collection of what I garner from conversations and observations. And I  always say, take it for what it’s worth. Brizzi Battle Embattled Marion County Prosecutor took his case […]

Put the Pacers in Perspective

Saturday, April 24th, 2010

There are a couple interesting columns in the print/on-line media this weekend regarding the Indiana Pacers.  On its editorial page the Indianapolis Star says there are a lot of questions that need to be answered before the city assumes operational control of Conseco Fieldhouse and Bill Benner opines in the IBJ how the Pacers leaving […]
