People, she said, can no more see their own ideology than they can smell their own breath. The Internet magazine Salon, a large leftwing website for which I was a much unloved columnist fifteen years ago, provides an interesting case in point.Joan Walsh was my editor at Salon, and soon became its editor-in-chief. Now she is described as ¬ďEditor-at-Large¬Ē but is more like its Matriarch-in-Residence. A recent election piece she wrote is titled, ¬ďAmerica¬ís Nightmare Political Reality: Two...

The tweet by Walsh, the outspoken former congressman, is in response to the creation of the Conservative Victory Project, a super-PAC being launched by Karl Rove, formerly a top adviser to President George W.

The group argues that a number of untested conservative candidates made it through 2012 primaries, only to lose in the general election. The...

    Democratic congressional candidate Tammy Duckworth has opened a double-digit lead over freshman Republican Rep. Joe Walsh, an edge fueled by a huge advantage among female voters as women's issues have taken center stage, a new Tribune/WGN-TV poll shows. With less than two weeks until the election, Duckworth had the backing of 50 percent to 40 percent for Walsh, the controversial tea party-backed incumbent. An additional 9 percent were undecided, which is significant this close to the Nov. 6 balloting, particularly for a highly visible contest that has been combative for months.

    The danger for Tammy Duckworth in the November election is that Congressman Joe Walsh is a better, more nimble, more natural retail politician than she is. Thanks to a new redistricting map, there are 6 percent more Democratic voters in the newly revised 8th District. Almost two-thirds of voters here went for Obama in 2008. So Duckworth arrived with a substantial advantage. A Public Policy Poll last month put her 14 points ahead of Walsh. But there is a growing sense that the race is tightening.

    Lake County Clerk ^ | 11/16/2010 | ND76
    The votes are in from Lake County, Illinois, as of 1626 CST, meaning that all votes are now in. The "Northwest Herald" had reported that Cook County's votes were all in, and, at that point, Walsh lead Melissa Bean by 311 votes district wide. The Lake County Clerk was the last to report. Of the absentees and provisionals, Walsh got 459 votes, for a total countywide of 55,148, and Bean got 473 votes, for a total countywide of 52,025. This means that Walsh has a 297 vote lead with all votes now counted. Congratulations to Joe Walsh!!! GOP member #241...

    Clerks counting the final ballots said that, barring any legal challenges, they expect to know this afternoon who will represent the 8th Congressional District. Since election night, the race between Republican Joe Walsh and incumbent Democrat Melissa Bean has remained too close to call. At last count, Walsh was ahead by 347 votes. About 50 provisional and absentee ballots have yet to be counted in McHenry County, while about 975 ballots are outstanding in Lake County. In Cook County, 209 absentee and 80 provisional ballots will be counted at 2 p.m. today.

    ‚ÄėIf we could exhume the Founders and, before we put them all on trial for crimes against humanity, could ask them how many laws they would have considered enough, and then showed them the Federal Register alone, they‚Äôd all hop back into their graves and commence spinning.‚ÄĚ That is the unique voice of one David Kahane, who was originally published ‚ÄĒ discovered ‚ÄĒ by National Review Online.

    Reporting from San Francisco Dana Walsh boasts of a donor list most congressional candidates can only envy: 33,000 people in 50 states. It's not that Walsh enjoyed much success the last time she ran; a Republican in this overwhelmingly Democratic city, she placed third in 2008, with less than 10% of the vote. What attracts the money and support ó more than $1.4 million so far ó is Walsh's target: Nancy Pelosi, the House speaker and an arch-villain to conservatives like Karl Schlueter. "Nancy's got to go," said the 65-year-old retiree, who lives in the Milwaukee suburbs and last month...
