Thursday Tidbits

  • Colorado: Progress Now has put up a pretty effective web ad as well as a website,, highlighting some of Bob Schaffer's lies while in office. Speaking of big liars, January 31 is Bob Schaffer ♥ George W. Bush Day.

  • Alaska: Ted Stevens wants to see cute baby polar bear cubs die. Well, that may be a tad harsh of a characterization... but only a tad.

  • Kentucky: Mitch McConnell not only obstructs the Senate at a historic pace, but now he's trying to shut down the Federal Election Commission out of spite. Also, McConnell has a Mission Accomplished moment. In short, Mitch really sucks.

  • North Carolina: According to Public Policy Polling's numbers on the 2008 Democratic Senate primary, the gap is increasing between State Senator Kay Hagan and the rest of the pack. However, the majority are still undecided.

  • Minnesota: Democratic Senate candidate Mike Ciresi starts his television advertising buy today.

  • Idaho: Larry LaRocco's Q4 take was $165,000, and his cash-on-hand at the end of 2007 stands at $172,000, respectable numbers for an Idaho non-incumbent. LaRocco has increased his fundraising every quarter since entering the race.
