There’s a kinky judge out there in Manitoba.
Pretty for her age, too.
The guy complaining just wants cash, IMHO. He wasn’t hurt.
Well, he did carry the state twice…
A new GOP-boosting blockbuster from Rasmussen? Not quite: This comes from Kos’s new pollster, PPP.
The Bushitler over the Lightworker in the paradigm midwestern swing state — by eight points. On a gut level, that strikes me as more amazing than even yesterday’s Gallup blockbuster.
Well, that’s the mood the country is in: in other words, American political reality before the population got pissed at W in 2005-06.
PRINCETON, NJ — Republicans lead by 51% to 41% among registered voters in Gallup weekly tracking of 2010 congressional voting preferences. The 10-percentage-point lead is the GOP’s largest so far this year and is its largest in Gallup’s history of tracking the midterm generic ballot for Congress. …
The Republican leads of 6, 7, and 10 points this month are all higher than any previous midterm Republican advantage in Gallup’s history of tracking the generic ballot, which dates to 1942. Prior to this year, the highest such gap was five points, measured in June 2002 and July 1994. Elections in both of these years resulted in significant Republican gains in House seats.

Catch a wave indeed.
Remember that line — “I think I make the rules“?
Ignatieff’s running with it.
“Of course he meant it as a joke but I don’t think it was entirely a joke. That told you — that took you right inside the head of Stephen Harper. That told you what’s inside. ‘I make the rules.’ Well, unless I’m seriously mistaken, we make the rules! The people of Canada make the rules! We want a prime minister and team that respects the rules, that respects the Canadian people, that listen to the Canadian people, especially when the Canadian people have something to say that we might not necessarily want to hear.”
I figure, either that’s a devastating critique of the PM, or it puts him into the pantheon of manly leaders like Trudeau (“Just watch me”) or Chretien (Shawinigan Handshake).
Still, if you’re attacking the guy, don’t say “of course he was joking”. Say, “I don’t think he was joking, and here’s why.”
So I ordered an iPhone the other week, and it shipped the day before yesterday. With a tracking number. Which tells me a story.
Its journey began at the Apple factory in Shenzhen, China. Within a day, it had made its way to Hong Kong.
As of midnight last night, it had made it to Memphis, Tennessee, and I believe I’m scheduled to get it on Monday.
The global transportation and shipping network is pretty darned impressive.
Now I just have to pick out a carrier. Will find one by then… probably either Virgin or Rogers. (Rogers is evil!)
Harper addressed a crowd of party faithful jammed into the Whitehorse Inn.
He trumpeted the Conservative’s achievements in the economy but warned that his party needed a stable mandate when the next election comes.
The alternative, Harper said, is a coalition of the Liberals, Bloc and NDP and the risk that the work of the last four years would be undone.
Rob Ford enjoys new respect, stature.
They threw smiles his way. They laughed at his jokes.
Rob Ford isn’t typically the popular guy at city council meetings, but with the right-wing writing on the wall, the race to capture the possible mayor-in-waiting’s affection has begun.
Publicly, his fellow councillors have softened their criticisms. Privately, they have begun lobbying for powerful roles in a Ford administration.
Actually that, more than anything, tells me his run is real, and might just win…
Finally, Krauthammer notes the tenor of debate Stateside. It isn’t pretty when the left starts to lose.
Of course, we may end up with a tripartite coalition running Canada, Mayor Smitherman, and the Dems rebounding — but it does not look that way, just now.
Two future Republican superstar senators:
Last year, Harper plays the piano and sings.
This year, he dances.
What are we leading up to? The Great Canadian Dance-Off.
Oh, should add Ignatieff’s moves:
