Treasurer Dan Rutherford’s Harry Caray’s Party

Very attractive candidate this fellow, ready to take Quinn on.

It’s the Dan Rutherford Chicago Networking Party. Music, drinks etc. Tuesday, July 31, 5:30-7:00 PM at Harry Caray’s in Chicago. The cover charge is $60 — http://www.danrutherford.org/calendar/event/18/EventDetails.aspx

He’s State Treasurer if you don’t know. (Reading Chi noosepapers you know far more about Lisa What’s her name, daughter of the evil genius Mike What’s his name.) Made wind-up speech at recent state GOP convention, was obvious standout in the day’s beauty parade.

O’Donnell summed up

"The Third-Term Panic", by Thomas Na...

"The Third-Term Panic", Thomas Nast, Harper's Magazine 7 November 1874

Guest blogger Mike Fahy sums up the Connecticut victory for O’Donnell:

I thought it could not get any better than Joe Miller’s defeat of Alaska’s biggest RINO last month. Delaware has not elected a Conservative since Caesar Rodney rode all night through a thunderstorm to sign the Declaration! It just gets better, and better, and better!

Miracles have become commonplace for Palin-endorsed Conservatives. Christine O’Donnell clobbered liberal Michael Castle, the political twin of Mark Kirk (RINO, IL), in Delaware’s Republican Senate primary, 53 percent to 47 percent.

Karl Rove bashed winner Christine O’Donnell as his entrenched RINO went down! Conservative writer Michelle Malkin labels Rove an “effete sore loser,” posting a photo of Rove thumbing his nose at you.

Karl Rove’s idiotic rant against Christine O’Donnell’s victory will undoubtedly appear in a Chris Coons campaign commercial. Obviously, RINOs are more comfortable electing a Liberal Democrat than electing a Palin-endorsed Conservative Republican.

The Freedomist reports that Rove was an undercover operative for Delaware RINOs while pretending to be a fair-and-balanced Fox analyst. Should Fox News fire Rove?

Last night, the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) announced their refusal to fund O’Donnell against Democrat Chris Coons (a self-described Marxist) in November. Palin, DeMint, and the Tea Party will fund O’Donnell in defiance of the GOP.

This morning the NRSC reversed their refusal to fund O’Donnell after receiving angry e-mails from NRSC contributors. NRSC chairman John Cornyn released a statement promising to support O’Donnell with an NRSC “check for $42,000, the maximum allowable donation that we have provided to all of our nominees.” Not true: The NRSC sent double that maximum amount to Mark Kirk, (RINO, IL)!

Another RINO lie: The NRSC pledged to stay out of contested primaries. John Cornyn, chair of the NRSC, said on 11/4/9: “We will not spend money in a contested primary.”

Delaware losers: virtually the entire Republican Party, National Review, Weekly Standard, Krauthammer, most second tier radio talkers, and cap™ global warmers everywhere.

Delaware winners: Sarah Palin, Jim DeMint, Michele Bachmann, the Tea Party, talkers Limbaugh/Levin/Hannity, Mama Grizzlys, and rank-and-file Conservatives everywhere.

This is a prelude to the next primary election: GOP v. Sarah Palin in Iowa’s 2/6/2012 presidential caucus. Sarah kicks it off this Friday with her keynote speech at Iowa’s annual Ronald Reagan Dinner. Donations accepted at SarahPAC.

Republicans who hate Republicans — loser Michael Castle refuses to endorse winner Christine O’Donnell, and loser Lisa Murkowski refuses to endorse winner Joe Miller.

“You betcha!” O’Donnell said in response to someone shouting the Palin catchphrase from the ecstatic election-night crowd. “There’s another woman I’ve got to thank. Thank you Governor Palin for your endorsement…she was a vote against the politics of personal destruction.”

On with O’Donnell then! Fight the good fight again!
Sons of TyrConnell are valiant and true!
Make the proud Saxon feel Erin’s avenging steel!
Strike! For your Country! O’Donnell abu!
O’Donnell Abu (The Clan Connell War Song, circa. 1843)

Reader D:

Rush and Levin (and Hannity) pummeled Christine O’Donnell’s opponent.

I heard Medved and Hewitt denigrate her. (Hewitt has always praised Kirk, too. )

Levin had O’Donnell on last night for at least one whole segment. The pundits had me afraid to hear her voice, or what crazy stuff she’d say. She was NORMAL. Yes, some cliches, those are the politicians’ traditional lexicon. She is articulate and likeable and she was on national radio and not tongue-tied. McCain is an old dud. O’Donnell is new blood — and for those “Independents,” she’s as perky as Katie Couric.

These are NOT feminists, but they are women warriors, and Michele Bachmann leads the contingent.

Illinois, Delaware, and points between, with both hands tied

Allusions abound in this Joycean blather from Mrs. Hickey’s boy Patrick, today in and about the swamps of Illinois (Capitol Fax Blog) and Delaware-become-national politics (the O’Donnell overcoming the GOP regular for the Biden seat), with a small pearl inserted in the middle: “Marque Kirque” for senate.

If these be illusions, make the most of them, but not before working through the thickly populated text.

So be my advice to readers on this 15th day of September, year of Our Lord 2010. Amen.

As for the state in question, see here for Perry Como’s contribution: Words

So be my advice to lovers of fine music.

Obama the orator has become the TelePrompter-in-Chief, though some still cling to his reputation as orator. Meanwhile, Sarah Palin is a speaker who can manage with reminders that fit on her hand. NY Sun, conceding Obama as orator, has this about Palin addressing the Ground Zero Mosque question via Facebook:

Not only does Mrs. Palin manage, in a polite but firm way, to speak more forthrightly than the president and to draw finer distinctions than the president but she also manages to articulate a practical line more in keeping with a harmonious outcome.

In other words she does the leadership thing in what she says, which, come presidential choice time in a year or so, will matter for her and us more than ever.
