Have a Reflective Memorial Day
Two things you can do this Memorial Day. 1) Send an e-mail thanking our brave troops for their service. 2) Send an e-mail chastising the worst Commander-in-Chief in history for his mismanagement, ineptitude, and lies.
Kentucky: MyDD's Singer compares the 2008-cycle KY-GOP to the 2006-cycle OH-GOP, looking at both's scandal, corruption, and general discord. Meanwhile Draft Forgy looks at another possible primary challenger to Mitch McConnell, former state representative Steve Nunn, reportedly a "moderate who has clashed with McConnell in the past."
Oregon: Blue Oregon put Gordon Smith's approve-disapprove numbers on a fancy chart. It's clear that his approval spike was due to his then-new-found opposition to the Iraq war, using words like "absurd" and "criminal." Now that Smith is back voting in favor of prolonging the Iraq War, his approval is below 50%. I would expect diminishing returns every time Smith flip-flops back in opposition to the Iraq War. With every successive flip-flop, more voters will take notice that Smith is absolutely devoid of conviction.
