Perriello Losing Ground

When I saw that TV ad the other night, I knew it was an act of desperation on the part of 5th District Congressman Tom Perriello.  (A side note: Why is it liberals consider the act of raising taxes a bad thing when they're out scrounging for votes, accusing their conservative opponents of ... preparing to raise our taxes!, but find no problem with tax increases when they are - the rest of the year - raising them like madmen?)

So why the desperation?  Why is Perriello resorting to scare tactics all of a sudden?

Here's why. From SurveyUSA:

No Purchase for Perriello in VA-05, Another Democratic Incumbent Congressman in Trouble: In an election for US House of Representatives in Virginia's 5th Congressional District today, 09/02/10, Republican State Senator Robert Hurt defeats incumbent Democrat Tom Perriello 61% to 35%, according to this latest exclusive WDBJ-TV poll conducted by SurveyUSA.

Compared to an identical SurveyUSA poll released 6 weeks ago, little has changed; Hurt is up a nominal 3 points; Perriello is flat. Hurt has increased his lead among men, younger voters, independents, and lower-income voters, and now is at or above 62% among each of those groups.

Perriello, who defeated 6-term Republican Virgil Goode by 727 votes in 2008, today is above 50% only among blacks, Democrats, moderates, liberals, those with unfavorable opinions of the Tea Party movement, and pro-choice voters -- none of which are majority groups among likely voters in Virginia's 5th district. 
Perriello, the incumbent, finds himself falling further behind!  If that's possible.  It's now 61% to 35%.  That's beyond a rout.  But will it hold up?  We'll see.

In the meantime, one has to wonder if Tommy Boy is having second thoughts about now for having voted - way too gleefully - for the Obama agenda, lock, stock, and barrel.

One has to wonder.

Here's to Robert Hurt.  Stay on him, man.  Don't let go.

Going After Illegal Immigrants?

Naaaaah.  Let's go after the sheriff who is the only person on the planet actually doing something about the lawlessness that pervades the entire country:


Guess that shows you whose side Obama's on.

Remember When James Webb Was a Normal Virginian?

That, unfortunately, was long ago.  Today?  He dines in the company of America's loony left and seems quite comfortable in doing so.  You'll want to remember that when he comes to you with hat in hand in 2012.

And he's not above working to keep the worst of them in office with him either.  You know that PAC that he created back in 2006 that he calls the "Born Fighting PAC"?  Check out this list of politicians who received campaign contributions from our once-mainstream senator (as reported by OpenSecrets.org).  It's a Who's Who of leftist Washington:

Yup, that's Harry "The war is lost" Reid at the tail end of that list.  Accompanied by fellow socialists Barbara Boxer, Patrick Leahy, and Patty Murray. (You know the name Martha Coakley from the Senate campaign that took place in Massachusetts to replace the departed Ted Kennedy in which she got her ass handed to her by Scott Brown.  You will also recall that she's as leftist as they come.)  I'm not sure why Brad Ellsworth was graced with a Webb campaign donation.  Perhaps it has to do with the fact that the Indiana Democrat needs it bad, having voted the Obama/Webb agenda, and now finds his election prospects in big trouble.

Anyway, file this information in the memory banks for future use.  We'll be reviewing this bit of history - along with Webb's close working relationship with Barack Obama - come 2012.

Gotta Love Them Democrats

Now that he's voted for it and it has become law ...


... Ron Wyden is against it.

For the love of God.

It's a Matter Of Perception

I don't know.  I have to wonder if the reason global warming theory has crashed and burned - as it most assuredly has - has less to do with the findings that are exposing the slipshod, amateurish, and hyper-partisan methods used by the IPCC to declare warming (or "climate change") (or "the greenhouse effect") (or "the inconvenient truth"), and more to do with the fact that the head of the IPCC - the point man for the global warming enthusiasm crowd - looks way too much like the lead character in the the movie Machete:


I don't know about you but I wouldn't want to meet either one of these goons in a dark alley.

Believe in global warming or I'll cut your eyes out and pee on your brain!

Not a way to influence the debate, I don't think.
