1. Why is FrumForum Featuring the Internet’s Foremost Defender of Perverts?

At RedState, we are generally loath to involve ourselves in the various internecine wars that tend to arise among the Rightosphere. After all, there are Democrats afoot who are busy guiding the country into an epic nosedive, and that’s generally more important than picking nits about the blog posts of others. This is doubly true of any fracas that involves David Frum. See, Frum used to be a person very much worth responding to, given his prestigious perches at National Review and AEI. These days, however, Frum has been shunted aside from both positions and relegated to writing for a blog that no one reads. If there is a marketplace of ideas, Frum’s goods are sitting around gathering mold on the shelf.Nonetheless, the most recent flareup between NewsRealBlog and FrumForum deserves mention because it appears that NRB has uncovered that FrumForum has been knowingly featuring the writings of the Internet’s foremost defender of criminal perverts. For the few remaining people who haven’t been turned off by Frum’s uninteresting ideas, pedantic writing, and delusions of persecution, this revelation will hopefully put the long-overdue final nail in Frum’s coffin as a political commentator. This is important because Frum’s counsel for the GOP is poison, and would lead it back to the days of massive public disenchantment instead of the current days of massive public enthusiasm.Click below to see how the saga unfolded.Please click here for the rest of the post.

2. The SEIU and Its ‘Extreme’ Election Shenanigans

With the labor movement in full panic mode over the prospects of a devastating mid-term election, the SEIU is turning up the heat all across the country, trying to figure out ways in which to demonize Republicans as well as to get ballots into boxes.So far, in addition to vowing to spend tens of millions, the SEIU’s tactics seems to be gearing up its election machine in ways that seem…well, shall we say…questionable?Please click here for the rest of the post.

3. Alex Sink Gambled Florida’s Future and Lost

Well, well, well. What do we have here?! It turns out that the Democratic nominee for Governor of Florida is tied a bit too closely to Charlie Crist and Bill McCollum in screwing Florida’s citizens.Sink sank the state with bad investments. When the investments collapsed, Sink wanted to blame everyone but herself.Please click here for the rest of the post.

4. Florida Dems mail GOP candidate’s social security number

In a state Democratic Party mailer that hit South Florida mailboxes last week, voters found an interesting figure on a top GOP House recruit: His social security number.The Florida Democratic Party reproduced a 2005 tax lien–since paid–filed against Allen West for delinquent credit card bills. As the Palm Beach Post reports, the document contains the GOP hopeful’s social security number.Please click here for the rest of the post.

5. It’s not us who should be afraid about California

Last month there was a real shift in the California Senate polling. After the primary Babs Boxer was terribly underperforming her past elections, but she was at least ahead consistently. But starting in August, Carly Fiorina started taking leads.Some say that the new PPP poll is reason to worry, but I don’t. PPP is a generally honest, reliable pollster in my experience, but that doesn’t mean every poll the firm puts out is right. I don’t think this one is predictive, and I also think Boxer has problems of her own to worry about in the coming weeks.Please click here for the rest of the post.
