Obama-Martin: When you think the Obama administration hits a new low, they proceed to stoop lower. Stephanie Cutter, Obama's Deputy Campaign Manager, thinks Republicans are politicizing Trayvon Martin's death. I believe Obama was the first person running for president this year to talk about it. If the Democrats want to have a discussion about gun rights, we should proceed to help them receive 33% of the white vote as they so desire.
Pravda: Good old Pravda has decided to weigh in on the US presidential election. They support Obama of course, but go after Mitt Romney for various reasons some of our commentators might agree with.
Durkee: Former California Democratic campaign finance guru Kinde Durkee will likely accept a plea deal and prosecutors will ask for 11-14 years in jail for her stealing of around $8 million from clients.
Specter: Speaking of something Pravdaish, former Pennsylvania Senator Arlen Specter has been talking up a storm about the Republican presidential primary as of late. He made some sexual comments about Mitt Romney's ability to retain positions.
PA-12: Mark Critz and Jason Altmire are attacking each other for discriminating against parts of PA-12. As PoliticsPA points out, there is some truth in the attacks they are making against each other. Critz is also the first candidate to launch what appears to be a negative ad.
Elections have consequences -- from the race for President to the race for one seat on a city council. The political economist Max Weber wrote that the state possesses a monopoly on the legitimate use of force. But in the United States, the state is divided into myriad federal, state, and local entities. And the elections to fill those entities are the products of the fascinating interactions between campaigns, party affiliations, voter turnout, and the media spotlight. Red Racing Horses analyzes those elections -- from a Republican-leaning perspective -- to keep a close eye on the process of electing officials, and to offer our perspective on the election-related issues of the day. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you'll enjoy the blog.
