PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING MESSAGE FROM THE REPUBLICAN NATIONAL COMMITTEE

If you see or hear Democrat distortions on television, radio, print or during public debates about any Republican, please call immediately at 1-866-NOT-TRUE or go to the Website:

This web site will set the record straight on the Democrats’ false and misleading attacks and will give you the opportunity to report what Democrats have been saying in your area.

I recently wrote a commentary refuting the "chickenhawk" attacks that many liberals and Democrats have been using. It's my usual stuff. Some people will like it and others will think it's weak. I've linked it below.

Currently, I'm working on one about Mary Landrieu's attempts to portray herself as a "conservative Democrat." I may post it as a vanity here if it turns out well enough. I haven't posted a vanity in a month or so.

Yes, yes. This is more LIKE it! The whole "new tone" thing backfired completely when the attacks never subsided from the lamestream press. Now the RNC is seeing the light: efforts to appease the America-haters are seen as displays of weakness.

A step in the right direction. Question is, what do they intend to DO with the data?

Is Mary listed as a receiver of fetal tissue harvesting company campaign contributions, like Harkin, Boxer, Lautenberg, and other democrats are?

The data will go to Republicans across the Country to let them know it is time to attack the lies.

The Operations Research papers that I have been putting up on FR come from the Republican National Committee. The RNC headed by Chairman Racicot is not letting any grass grow under their feet.

This is the new and improved RNC and this from someone who refused to donate when Nicholson was there. The folks at RNC are doing a great job and will only get better with all the experience they are getting.

The Simon campaign (CA gov's race) will be calling every five minutes to report the latest Davis outrage.

We should forward Congressman Billybob's suggestions regarding the photo of (CA Gov) Davis accepting a campaign check. Davis denies this took place on government property, the photo may tell a different story.

Let me know if you've already done this, Congressman. I would thoroughly enjoy calling Davis a liar, but I believe you're from California, so the honor of unmasking him should go to you.

In case any of you have missed the Davis photo thread, here it is.

The Dems are not being that original...they are using all of their usual scams. Lie about Social Security, try and scare the old folks--the same old tried and untrue tactics.

But IMO, their rhetoric has an even hollower ring than normal--I sense a real reluctance on the part of rank-and-file Dems to make much if any noise, or do much of anything.

Of course, I still expect plenty of activity at the end--they always manage to leverage their union volunteeers on Election Day, and they have lots of money too.

But they are wide open to aggressive and savvy campaigning by our troops, I believe.

Average Democrats don't really trust their own party on national security, and that is the underlying issue behind everything in American politics this year.

Not really---but I'm working on the Senate race of Jay Wolfe here in WV, and this state is still filled with thousands of conservative Democrats...so perhaps my view is being a bit skewed by that.

But I think my point is valid...that even many traditionally Dem voters across the country really deep down in their hearts know that their leaders can't be counted on to protect the country.

Because of 9-11, the anthrax attacks, and the fear of further attacks, national security issues are hitting closer to home than ever. When your home, your family and your own community might be in danger, that tends to focus people's attention a bit better.

Hey, the President's high approval ratings aren't just coming from Republicans you know...there are a whole bunch of Independents and Dems represented by those numbers. They are the people I'm talking about.

I'm beginning to think the "New Tone" thing was a give 'em enough rope to hang themselves "strategery". The less fuss that was made, the more emboldened and outrageous the Dem's claims have become. McBaghdad was icing on the cake IMHO, Their true motive, power at any cost, has been exposed for all to see and it's not playing too well with the populace.

Their true motive, power at any cost, has been exposed for all to see and it's not playing too well with the populace.

I'm not sure that sweeping references to "the populace" are quite warranted. The Dems are still getting plenty of cover from most of the media. One of the media watchdog orgs did a report on the coverage of Daschle's Pink Tie Rant, for example, and found that Fox News, and a couple of newspapers, were the only sources that reported the full context of the remarks by Bush that Dasshole and the Grand Wizard were misrepresenting. Dems still get the best of the big media spin, and huge numbers of Americans still buy into it.

Nevertheless, I agree that the "new tone" approach is wearing away at the effectiveness of traditional Dem and pro-Dem media tactics, and slowly undermining the stereotype of "mean spirited" Republicans. Even if it is only having marginal effects, well, elections, and culture wars, are often won or lost on the margins.

It works because Bush isn't looking for a 100% conversion of the populace. He has 40% in the bag already with his base, the Dem's control another 40%, and he's looking to build in the majority in the remaining 20% of the fence setters. Take half + 1% there and your talking possible landslide elections (in picking up seats in Congress) with very long coattails.

Truth only frustrates and subsequently emboldens the rats to strike out like a badger on PCP.

I am predicting violence at our polling places this election cycle. It will take place about two hours before poll closing, causing petitions to activist judges to force polls to remain open. I am sure they are already rehersing their tactics in New Jersey warehouses. It will take place in every district which is tight. Scripts are being handed out for the news camera interviews as certain as the sun will rise.

It's the pink tie rule. How can you hammer a guy wearing a pink tie? BTW, does anyone know why Daschle always looks like he uses a deep fryer as a facial sauna? He's always got that shiny greasy skin look. Is he applying some sort of stem cell fetus oil to his skin for that Dorrian Gray look for all of eternity or something?

Whoo Hoo! What a winner! Thanks for the heads up and the link!
Must agree with the statement on the website, the Pubbies have tried to present a positive attitude to the nation, which is why the President's ratings are high IMHO! Americans prefer that over the caustic rages of the dark side!

Hold that thought. Your fun is just beginning.

I made a modest donation ($100) to the RNC back in January (I usually donate either direct to candidates or to my local GOP organization). Since then, I have been inundated with gimmicky requests for more and more and more and more money. I figure they have spent every nickel I gave them, and maybe more, not fighting democraps -- but in soliciting more money from me!

I'll continue to work hard for the ticket, but will think twice before I send'em another check.

Not only is Racicot a classy representative when he goes on TV to speak for the Republicans, the entire operation seems to be more responsive. When I called they already had a raft of material ready to go on Lautenberg.

and the embossed membership cards, and the wall plaques, and the lapel pins, and the address labels, and the "autographed" pictures of the prez (however much I like him).

All available RNC funds should be spent on testicular implants for Trent Lott!

In St. Louis, on KSDK-TV Channel 5, Local NBC affiliate, aired at 8:15 PM another hit piece on Talent, challenging his votes on Social security. This commercial showed a graphic of a Social Security card, broken in half. It also had a graphic at the end of the commercial referring voters to this website www.talentfacts.com
