A May Victory in November?

Monday, July 30th, 2012

This may sound crazy, but I’ve been doing some analysis lately of the new 7th Congressional District maps, and Republican Carlos May actually has a pretty good shot at pulling an upset victory over Democratic incumbent Andre Carson.  No,  I have been overindulging in martinis.  (I actually gave up alcohol for 30 days doing the […]

The Problem with Carson’s Comments

Tuesday, September 6th, 2011

Although it’s been a few days since 7th District Congressman Andre Carson’s comments regarding some members of the Tea Party hit the national scene, the debate still continues. Carson himself has started to backtrack somewhat from his rhetoric that there are some members of Congress who would like to see blacks “hanging from a tree”, […]

Carson’s Comments

Wednesday, August 31st, 2011

Although my relationship with 75-percent of the Marion County Democratic Party is strained at best, I have always had a good relationship with 7th District Congressman Andre Carson.  We almost became relatives through marriage a few years ago.  And we are even disliked by personally by the same Democratic County Chairman.  So while a lot […]

Andre’s Anger or Angst?

Saturday, April 30th, 2011

(I know this blog post is a little longer than usual, but it’s necessary.  I’ve gotten conflicting stories from  from very reliable people regarding the same event so I decided to print them both.) Imagine it’s a weeknight and you’re at the third meeting of your new organization with nearly 100 of your closest political […]

Apparently, It’s Not Just Andre

Tuesday, April 19th, 2011

I recently wrote about a behind the scenes feud between 7th District Democratic Congressman Andre Carson and Marion County Democratic Chairman Ed Treacy.  To put it mildly, the two don’t apparently see eye and would gladly get rid of the other one should the opportunity ever present itself.  Well, less than 24 hours after that […]

What’s Going On?

Saturday, April 16th, 2011

I took a little break from blogging because I’ve been following up on something that just didn’t seem to make a lot of sense to me.  And the more I chased down the information, the more bizarre stuff I discovered.   Let me know what you think. We all know the big news of this week […]

Whoops, There It Is!!!

Tuesday, March 15th, 2011

Either someone jumped the gun this afternoon  or Indiana Congressman Andre Carson had a change of heart on a continuing resolution to keep the federal government running. His Office sent out a news release shortly after the House of Representatives passed the resolution.  It read as follows… Carson opposes latest Continuing Resolution D.C. – Congressman […]

Slating Day

Sunday, February 13th, 2011

When making a decision to attend a political party slating convention, the big thing I ask myself is which one will be more interesting.   This year the winner was the Marion County Democrats.  They had four contested races which in turn led to a lot more drama.  My Republican friends only had a couple contested […]

Sam, I Am

Friday, February 11th, 2011

Sam Carson, the son of the late Julia Carson, told me Thursday morning that he is running for Mayor of Indianapolis.  Shortly after formally announcing, Marion County Democratic Chairman Ed Treacy put out this statement. “The entry into the mayor’s race of the unemployed Sam Carson brings an interesting development — a candidate with neither […]
