    RUSH: So the Hollywood left is all atwitter now with The Oprah. They want The Oprah to run for president based on her speech last night. I didn’t watch it. I didn’t tune in to watch the Golden Globes so all I know is what I have been able to inform myself via reading and so forth after the fact. I made it a point not to watch it. I couldn’t have cared less. But the fact that they’re glomming on to Oprah — (interruption) No, no, no. I have plenty of thoughts about it. I know plenty enough to...

    Off the coast of South Africa, just below the ocean’s surface, an epic battle is underway as killer whales hunt and kill the world’s most iconic predator, the great white shark. The phenomenon began in early May when scientists at shark cage diving company Marine Dynamics spotted a pair of killer whales cruising along the south western coast of South Africa. Days later, great white shark carcasses began washing up in their wake.

    WASHINGTON - Power outages left many wondering who turned out the lights in D.C. on Tuesday-- including OprahWinfrey. The power went off at D.C.'s Warner Theatre, right in the middle of Ms. Winfrey's speech honoring Maya Angelou. Winfrey was part of the dedication ceremony of a new U.S. Postal Service Forever Stamp that honors Angelou. "I am honored to be here to stand her as her daughter, sister-friend at the unveiling of the Maya Forever-- FOREVER-- stamp," Winfrey said, and then the lights went out.

  • NRSC Chairman Jerry Moran: Republican donors ‘skeptical’ after Romney loss

    National Republican Senatorial Committee Chairman Jerry Moran (Kan.) said Thursday that lingering disappointment over the outcome of recent elections has made it harder for Republicans to raise money in their pursuit of the Senate majority. "When I started the attempt to raise money for our candidates -- or for races even before we had candidates -- it was hard to get Republican donors to get out the checkbook," said Moran. "They had been through election cycles before in which we didn't have the success that people thought we should and Governor Romney did not get elected president." Moran made his...

    Dignitas News Service ^ | September 30, 2014 | Paul M Winters
    In an election climate in which issues favor Republicans and polls indicate a potential GOP landslide, conservatives need still be wary of Democrat skullduggery and its impressive ground game. The trend of 21st century politics shows that issues and national sentiment have taken a back seat to get-out-the-vote efforts, particularly given Democratic Party reliance on voting constituencies that pay far less attention to the issues and are less up to date on news and current events. Despite having a solid advantage on the issues, the Republican Party risks seeing its hopes for November glory washed away by busloads of Democrats "useful idiots"...
  • RNC to spend $100m to get out vote

    The Washington Examiner ^ | 8-28-14 | David M. Drucker
    The Republican National Committee is on track to spend more than $100 million in the midterm campaign, with virtually every dime plowed into the party’s new digital voter-turnout program. If the program is effective, Republican campaigns will have access to a modern get-out-the-vote operation that has been the hallmark of the Democrats’ success in recent election cycles. But if it fails to deliver as advertised, Republican candidates will be stuck with another subpar voter turnout program and without the resources the GOP traditionally sent to their campaigns in midterm years. The RNC is set this week to announce the deployment...

    “Washington is getting so many things wrong about young people,” McCain, the host of an upcoming TV series on politics for cable channel Pivot, told TIME at the Time/People pre-White House Correspondents’ Dinner cocktail party on Friday. The district, she said, needs to start paying more attention to the demographic. Youngsters can be socially liberal and fiscally conservative, she said, but politicians such as her father, former Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R—Ariz)—can’t seem to fully grasp that. “Washington is not having a nuanced conversation about young people,” McCain says. But the host of the new late-night series hopes...

    Meghan McCain, daughter of former Republican presidential candidate and Arizona senator John McCain, was asked by KTAR's Mac & Gaydos Tuesday if she agreed with Bush's viewpoint. McCain didn't quite go that far, but she offered up some interesting insight as to what they might mean in regards to a possible run at the presidency. "I understand what he's saying meaning that America is this shining beacon at the top of the hill as Ronald Reagan once said," McCain told KTAR. "I think everyone wants to be an American if you can be, especially if you come from a place...

    Perhaps we'll be seeing less of Lena Dunham on screen in the future: The "Girls" talent says she might consider quitting acting to focus on some of her other work. But don't worry, she's not going far. "I don't know if I'm going to want to act anymore. I'm always relieved on the days I don't have to. I'd rather give parts to other women than be the woman having the parts," the Golden Globe-winning 27-year-old said in the April issue of Glamour, which hits newsstands March 18. Appearing in the critically acclaimed HBO series about four 20-something women growing...

    Republican strategists work to improve data analytics in advance of the midterm elections. or two days last week, Republican strategists, political consultants, and digital gurus convened in a sleek, wood-paneled conference room on the third floor of New York City’s Standard hotel. Their mission: to reverse the fortunes of the Republican party by leveraging voter data, technology, and public opinion to win elections. More than a year removed from an election year in which Democrats used data to gain insights that allowed them to swing a handful of races, including at the top of the ticket, those gathered were determined...

    Trumpeting the ever-increasing weight of outside political organizations, Karl Rove's campaign groups out-fundraised the Democratic National Committee during the 2012 election cycle, according to a draft tax return obtained Friday by the Wall Street Journal.

    Sen. John McCain's daughter says the tea party revolution within the Republican Party has left him in a state of emotional distress. "I’ve never heard him this depressed other than maybe after the ‘08 election," Meghan McCain said. "He’s so depressed, so down-trodden. The way he’s talking about it, he's never seen it this bad in his 30-plus years in office." Meghan, who describes herself as a liberal Republican, said she shares his sense of despondency. "We’re both frustrated with the idea that only the hyper-conservative wing of the party is going to represent the masses,” said McCain, 29, who...

    The RNC’s “Growth and Opportunity Project,” released in March, .... 14 recommendations intended to attract young voters, including forming a “celebrity task force,” empowering younger voices in digital issues, having Republicans appear more frequently on previously ignored media outlets, and making the party more welcoming. The (College Republican National Committee)'s report, released in June, focused exclusively on young voters and was scathing in its assessment of how negatively young voters saw the Republican Party. Most salient among its findings were the feedback from focus groups composed of potential Republican voters. In addition to noting that they didn’t expect the GOP...
