Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,November 18th,2014

.. it went into overtime , and the incumbent [Sen. Mark Begich] is still contesting the issue .However , the Alaska Elections Commission has finished counting the ballots , and has declared Dan Sullivan the winner ..

.. it was worth the wait . It represents another seat ‘ s gain for the G.O.P.  . Now , THE gop  HAS gained 8 seats in the recent election , and is likely to gain a Ninth in December in the runoff in Louisiana . ..

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,October 24th,2014

.. and his is an important name …. Dan Sullivan ..

.. now the polling will begin …. after Rasmussen ‘ s result …

.. [h/t — m.nationalReview.com]..
.. [link] to the campaign poll result …

.. Dan Sullivan is up 47% to 45% , a result that should give Mark Begich a good bit of heartburn . He is under the 50% mark , and he is BEHIND his challenger …

.. the upcoming polls should be interesting …. especially the partisan lean …

— [update] — Dan Sullivan has been doing beautifully on the campaign trail . His campaign message is fantastic , and he has had incumbent Mark Begich constantly on his heels . The polls finally show it … Sullivan leads Begich 48% to 42% …

.. Go , Dan , Go !!!! …

… Congratulations , Dan Sullivan [#US Senate]

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,August 27th,2014

.. you just may well be the next US Senator from Alaska …

.. Mark Begich ‘ s win in 2008 was a fluke . Yes , he was the 2 – term mayor of Anchorage . However , normally , challenging the senior US Senator of the GOP [Ted Stevens] is a fools ‘ errand . However , the US Justice Department and the US Atty went wild …

.. the US Atty sought and received an indictment of Stevens and a friend for corruption . The indictment was flimsy , but the timing was worse . It was done deliberately during the 2008 campaign year , in order to derail Stevens ‘ re – election campaign . Which it did …

.. [link] to the news article …

.. even so , Begich barely won , by a margin of a few thousand votes . Stevens ‘ conviction was thrown out by a federal judge , and the proposed re – trial was overruled [amazingly so] by the Department of InJustice . Unfortnuately , Ted Stevens is no longer with us . He died in a plane crash in the fall of 2010 …

.. Dan Sullivan is the former 1 – term AG of Alaska . He is a long – time public servant , as well as a USMC veteran . He should have a good chance at unseating Begich , because Begich is polling well below 50% in most polls …

.. Good luck , Dan !! …

… How Could the ObamaCraps be This Stupid [#EPA regs , #climate change]…

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,July 2nd,2014

.. I thought that they at least had some political acumen ..

.. at least where POTUS ‘ own behind was on the line , they had it right , so to speak . Not now , not these days …

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [link] to Dick Morris ‘ commentary ..

.. in added commentary to Dick ‘ s comments , commentator Rick Ungar is right . Basically , the ObamaCraps just signed Alison Lundergren Grimes ‘ political death warrant …

.. it is not as if Mitch McConnell is going to blow her out . Maybe , maybe not . But any chance that she had in the race is now gone ….

.. Coal is a big part of Kentucky ‘ s economy , from mining to manufacturing to electricity generation . McConnell will remind his constituents of that . There goes the whole ball of wax …

.. Kentucky is not the only state to be affected . West Virginia is even more so than Kentucky is . West Va Secretary of State Natalie Tennant had little chance against enormously popular Congresswoman Shelley Moore Capito , but that chance is also now gone …

.. also , Mark Begich ‘ s chances in Alaska took a heavy hit . Alakska is a coal – heavy state , and no state relies more on oil exploration and exploitation than Alaska does . The Dems can say goodbye to another Senate seat …

… C.P.A.C. — Sarah Palin …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,March 14th,2014

.. here is the C.P.A.C. keynote address from former Alaska Governor and FoxNews contributor Sarah Palin …

.. [h/t — theRightScoop]..
.. [link] to the speech ..

.. FoxNewsChannel carried her speech live end to end . It was hilarious , and it was fantastic . She is as funny as ever . It would be something if she did decide to run , but I think that she may not , at least for a while …

.. right now , her best way to contribute to the conservative movement is from the outside , from the media , and from the meat – and – potatoes circuit . She can earn some serious money while building her chits for the future , and possibly run for office , maybe even from a different state other than Alaska …

… Martin Bashir is Gone …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Friday,December 6th,2013

.. good riddance !! ..

.. anyone that believes that his ” resignation ” was volutary , go ahead . Be an idiot …

.. Bashir was forced out , if not fired outright . It was done the was it was to avoid ” demoralizing ” the staff at pMSNBC . Not that it could get any less moral than it already is . Given some of the idiots that they employ , they deserve each other …
