    Rep. John Dingell (D-Mich.), the longest-serving House member in history, will retire at the end of his term, he told the Detriot News in an interview. "I'm not going to be carried out feet first," Dingell told the paper. "I don't want people to say I stayed too long." Dingell, 88, has been in Congress since 1955 and is the longest-serving member in congressional history. The former chairman of the powerful House Energy & Commerce committee cited both health concerns and a frustration with Congress in his decision to retire. "My doctor says I'm OK. And I'm still as smart...

    John Dingell Jr. has represented Michigan’s 15th congressional district for 55 years. His father held the same seat for 22 years before that. Dingell has lived his entire life in Washington, D.C., never in the southwest suburbs of Detroit where his constituents live. For perhaps the first time in his life, Dingell is actually in a political battle. The Detroit Free Press published the results of a poll that showed him 4% down to his challenger, Dr. Rob Steele, a cardiologist from Ann Arbor, with just three weeks to go before the election.

Minutes later, another e-mail said the previous one was nothing but a political hoax, pointing to the fact that the 15th District had gone 60 percent for the Democrat in the last three presidential elections. It also pointed to previous polling that said Dingell led Steele by 19 points. Ah, nothing like election season, when you receive more information than you could ever actually want...

To confine themselves to the races in which they hold slight leads or are within five points would be to leave on the table dozens of Democratic incumbents who could be defeated in this landslide year. The danger here is not overconfidence but underconfidence, and that Democratic incumbents who could be defeated will skate to victories. Despite a massive victory in the offing for Republicans, there could be great gnashing of teeth when they see how narrowly some of the...

John Dingell, D-Mich., trailing his Republican opponent, Rob Steele, by 4 percentage points. The automated phone survey of 300 people in the 15th Congressional District shows Steele getting 43.8 percent of the vote while Dingell, a Dearborn Democrat and the longest-serving member of Congress, at 39.5 percent and undecided voters at 11 percent. The gap is within the poll’s margin of error of plus or minus 5.6 percentage points. The poll...

Even in bad years for Democrats, Dingell’s won comfortably—he's been held under 60 percent of the vote just once in his long career. In 2008, Democrat Barack Obama won his district with two-thirds of the presidential vote. Read more: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0910/42191.html#comments#ixzz0zbYhLsk8

Democrats have proven that whether it is the banks, the auto industry and now healthcare, they simply want more control in Washington. Of course, when the Democrats and a bunch of Washington bureaucrats control your healthcare then they can control your life. And more importantly, they can also control your death.” Now John Dingell, the Democratic congressman from Michigan, has confirmed exactly what I stated in that paragraph.

    Keith Ellison, widely hailed as America's first Muslim congressman, could more accurately be described as CAIR and Hamas' man in Congress. Congressman Ellison has been a regular presence at CAIR fundraisers and at pro-Hamas rallies in the United States. As a former member of Farrakhan's Nation of Islam , Ellison has enough anti-semitic and Islamist credentials to satisfy anyone, and had expressed openly anti-semitic beliefs in the past. Since Ellison got his start with CAIR , his attempt to provide support for Hamas is completely unsurprising. Both Hamas and CAIR are projects of the Muslim Brotherhood, which also helped...

    He said, "We'll put an amendment in which will address his specific problem..."I know that I am supposed to show respect to my national leaders, but this one comment seemed odd, as though, he was trying to quell the debate by offering this fellow special favor.Sola/Dingell at 6:59

    Here is video of a man telling Neil Cavuto yesterday that a person at Democrat John Dingell's recent Town Hall Meeting in Michigan seen carrying an "Obama as Hitler" sign was also seen after the event outside handing out Dingell literature. The man said, "it appears he was part of the Dingell operation to start with." It has become a fashionable Democrat talking point this week to say the anti-ObamaCare protesters showing up at events are carrying "Swastikas" or that they are "Nazis." . . . . . (Watch Video)

    Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, and Steny Hoyer have called the constituents speaking out against ObamaCare at town halls “un-American,” and that didn’t slow them down. Will calling them “racists” do it? MS-NBC’s Ed Schultz tosses a softball to Rep. John Dingell (D-MI), last seen being flummoxed by his own constituents last week. At the time, Dingell dismissed his critics as “infiltrators.” Today, they’re the equivalent of the Ku Klux Klan (via The Weekly Standard): What message has the House Democratic leadership sent this week to voters in their district? If you show up to town halls to criticize us, you’re...

    John Dingell (D-Mich) on MSNBC: Well, the last time I had to confront something like this was when I voted for the civil rights bill and my opponent voted against it. At that time, we had a lot of Ku Klux Klan folks and white supremacists and folks in white sheets and other things running around causing trouble. Note to Think Progress: You're supposed to blog about things that will hurt Republicans, not Democrats. George Soros is going to be very very angry at you.
