This guy is a grade-A moron.
Speaking with reporters while in New Hampshire for a dinner at a local Republican group meeting, the former Massachusetts senator, who has been fueling speculation about a run for Senate in the Granite State, had a momentary lapse about which state he was in when asked about clarifying whether [...]
Ouch… The Growth and Opportunity Project, aka “the autopsy,” was heralded as the Republican Party’s clear-eyed assessment of its 2012 presidential defeat. Autopsies are done on dead things, and ever since its March 2013 release, the GOP has done everything possible to stay dead.
Many Wisconsin Progressives are extremely unhappy with the candidacy of Trek Executive, Mary Burke. Nary a day goes by without Facebook posts about Burke’s lack of a progressive outlook and Vinehout’s expected announcement.

He defeated three-term Senator and progressive icon Russ Feingold in a stunning upset. Although Johnson was leading in the polls, many progressives and media figures [...]
