    According to one of the tea party's leading voices, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R), who is being challenged by conservative Matt Bevin in Kentucky's Senate GOP primary, is not an "Arlen Specter" Republican."It's not like we're talking about Arlen Specter here," said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), in an interview with The Washington Post. "Senator McConnell has a longstanding conservative record and for an opponent to beat him, they'll have to prove somehow that he's not a conservative."Specter, the late Pennsylvania senator who left the GOP for the Democratic Party in 2009, was a villain-like figure to many on the...
  • WashPost Buries GOP Slam of Obama Regarding al Qaeda Resurgence;

    "Republican lawmakers Thursday blamed the Obama administration for the stunning resurgence of Iraq’s al-Qaeda franchise and called on the White House to take assertive steps to help Baghdad beat back militant uprisings in the country’s west." That's how Ernesto Londono opened his January 10 story "Republicans blame Obama administration for al-Qaeda resurgence in Iraq," a front-page-worthy story which Washington Post editors buried on page A10. By contrast, the Post ran not one but two Chris Christie bridge-scandal stories on the Friday edition's front page. The other stories rounding out the front page centered on efforts to hash out a long-term...

    In a clear attempt to woo largely establishment conservative commentators who have loudly opposed the GOPs current government shutdown strategy, President Obama held an off-the-record meeting with the Washington Posts Charles Krauthammer, the Wall Street Journal editorial page editor Paul Gigot, National Reviews Washington editor Robert Costa, syndicated columnist and former CNN co-host Kathleen Parker, and Byron York of the Washington Examiner.

    In a secret meeting on Tuesday morning, Senator Rand Paul (R., Ky.) hosted a bipartisan group of senators and House members in the Capitols basement. According to several participants, the lawmakers plotted ways to stop the use of U.S. military force in Syria. Since the diplomatic situation is fluid, there was no final consensus on how best to combat the administration, but potential legislative maneuvers, press appearances, and letters were discussed. Several undecided members asked questions. Aides say Paul planned the gathering over a week ago, and the list of attendees grew by the day. He is pleased, especially, by...

    Republican Scott Brown became the junior senator from Massachusetts today, a week earlier than expected, and two weeks after his upset victory in the Bay States January 19 special election. Browns swearing-in marks the official end of the Democrats super majority by giving the GOP 41 votes in the 100-member Senate enough to sustain a filibuster. At the Capitol, Brown was joined by his wife, Gail, and sworn in by Vice President Joe Biden on the Senate floor, using bibles beloved by his two daughters, Ayla and Arianna, who were not able to attend the ceremony. Biden joked that...

    Brown is the new black. 2009 was about going green, 2010 is about going Brown. Driving to Logan last night, I was flipping radio channels. It was wall-to-wall Coakley ads (including WRKO, home of Rush and Howie Carr, who had Gerald Amirault on his show). I heard the same Emilys List ad three times. It may sound a bit desperate on her part but you would think that the overwhelming coverage has to ultimately rub off on voters? I'm just a littl' old Conservative down here in FL (sending $$ to Rubio when I can squeeze...
