    Warren County, Ohio (CBS CLEVELAND) Ė A pile of political pranking was dumped on an Ohio Democratic headquarters early Tuesday morning.

Warren County Democratic chair Beth Goldenfield told CBS Local 12 news that the pile was dumped in the parking lot, blocking the entrance to the building, sometime between 10 p.m. Monday...

    2 YEARS ago: The wedding of Sally Quinn and [Vice President at-large of the Washington Post] Ben Bradlee's son, Quinn Bradlee, to Georgetown yoga instructor Pary Williamson has been moved up by six months, from October to April 10. "We found out that we have a little one coming on the way and Pary didn't want to be a big mama walking down the aisle," the father-to-be told me by phone from La Sammana, the posh Caribbean resort on St. Martins, where the four are on vacation. Asked if he's excited by the prospect of fatherhood, Quinn said, "I am,...
  • Why Would God Give America Obama or Romney?

    If Mitt Romney is elected president of the United States, his religion, a serious, cultic distortion of the Bible and history in the eyes of many evangelicals, will have new standing and credibility, and likely experience an acceleration of its already fast expansion. Under Romney, some policies may languish in the swampy squish of centrism, one that embraces elements of Obamacare. If his leadership in Massachusetts is a sample, Romney may attempt to combine statist, modified Keynesian economics with Reaganesque supply-side policies, a mixture of oil and water. He is untested on national defense and foreign policy. If President Obama...

    The Washington Times ^ | October 9 | Mark Mix
    As President Obama and Vice President Joseph R. Biden campaign for re-election, they feel compelled time and again to remind anyone who has gathered to hear them that Americaís economic troubles started well before they got to the White House. American voters surely know that. The Obama ticketís real problem is that more and more voters are coming to understand that the current administration has no clue about which policies would help the national economy, and workers in particular, get back on track. Emblematic of the presidentís befuddlement was his jibe against Right to Work laws at a Labor Day...

    Hello, for Nov 6, 2012 I vote in Florida my official address, but I am not living there at the moment so I am not familiar with the local issues in the County of Hillsborough, Tampa, FL. I need help on how to fill in the absentee Ballot with social-conservative/conservative choices. I am interested in the "local Issues" (i.e. Judges for FL supreme court, District Court of appeals judges running for re-election; School Board candidates, the amendments, Sheriff, the works). I already picked everyone with the "R" I found; now I need the "unknown" ones. On Amendments (I need opinions...

    Patriot Update ^ | 10/4/12 | Chris Gadsden
    It is sad but more than occasionally I will learn of individuals who have become so jaded by the whole political realm that they decide not to vote since politicians are ďall the sameĒ and ďit wonít matter who is in the White House.Ē While we have all been discouraged by the greed, avarice, ineptitude and slime that Washington exudes, to so callously disregard the right to vote is despicable and shameful. I will forgo the fully justified guilt-tripping about the men and women who have bled and died to protect our democracy and simply stick to incontrovertible facts about...

    If the first presidential debate were a boxing match, Romney would have won on points. Being neither Democrat nor Republican, liberal or conservative, I have no champion in the ring. But being the modern pied piper of propaganda analysis and having spent way too much of my life in marketing, I can see when a product pitch works or doesnít, even when the product is a politician and their promises can be placed in the circular file cabinet before November. Last night was a match between a mechanic and a brand. Romney was studied and prepared, repeatedly bringing the debate...

  • Missouri's Akin, left for dead, on comeback trail

    Washington Examiner ^ | 10/03/2012 | Paul Bedard
    Missouri Senate candidate Rep. Todd Akin, thrown under the bus by Karl Rove and the Washington GOP establishment for his "legitimate rape" comment, is making a strong comeback in the polls and is now better-liked than incumbent Sen. Claire McCaskill. Five weeks after making the comments that at the time seemed career-ending, Rasmussen Reports has Akin six points behind McCaskill, 51 percent to 45 percent. That result shows an improvement over past polls, some that had him behind by 10 points. And among those "certain to vote," he trails McCaskill by just four points, said Rasmussen. More surprising is that...

    When Mitt Romney blurted out his now notorious 47-percent lament, liberal gaffe-o-meters went ballistic, acting as though he were an American Ebenezer Scrooge who had just shoved Tiny Tim Cratchit into a ditch and then burned down a crutch factory. As several observers have noted, this amorphous statistic includes myriads of worthy beneficiaries indeed, such as veterans, social security recipients, the physically or mentally disabled, the deserving poor, and those utterly unable to take care of themselves in a society where the federal government has assumed tasks that once were the preserve of families, churches, voluntary organizations, and state or...

    A new poll out today suggests that GOP accusations of intentional manipulation on the part of pollsters are resonating with the American public. Roughly 42 percent of those surveyed by left-leaning Public Policy Polling said pollsters were manipulating their data in order to show President Obama with a lead, while 40 percent said that wasn't the case. The remaining 18 percent said they were not sure what to think. The exact wording of the question: "Do you think pollsters are intentionally skewing their polls this year to help Barack Obama, or not?" The results show that self-identified Republicans were particularly...
