Karl Rove's American Crossroads super PAC is flooding

TV with anti Duckworth ads. I cannot wait until this election is over and Duckworth sends Walsh packing.

I've had scads of trick-or-treaters already!

I'm a ladybug and the husband is a scary orange.

Time for salt in the windowsill corners!

IL absentee voters!!

Even though the return envelope doesn't indicate postage required, I'm assuming postage is required. Is the rate .45 or extra for the over-sized envelope?

Pennsylvania Christian Taliban Wants Women To Prove Rape Or No Food Stamps

>>Let’s ignore for just a moment that a great many single mothers didn’t start out that way. Many needy children were conceived in wedlock. Many had fathers that died or simply stopped taking care of them. Let’s also ignore the fact that this bill would shame and punish women for being sexual beings while forgetting it takes two to tango. Let’s forget about the fact that most food stamp recipients are working, but in the low-income jobs that Mitt Romney likes to brag about creating. Let’s talk about the fact that the process of proving rape is humiliating, degrading and very, very difficult.<<


The attack on women and children in this country is out of fucking control.

Tammy Duckworth on 'The Last Word' w/ Lawrence O'Donnell

Duckworth said, “He’s a very sexist kind of a guy. He’s called me ‘dear,’ offered to hold my hand, he’s grabbed me during debates, pokes me, and he was just saying that I was more concerned picking out the outfits that I’m going to wear rather than concentrating on the issues.”


Go Tammy!

House Majority PAC Launches $2.4 Ad Buy Against IL Republicans

Democrats are trying to make Rep. Joe Walsh (R-Ill.), one of Congress' most outspoken members, a liability for his fellow Republicans stuck in tight Illinois congressional races.

In a new ad paid for by the Democratic House Majority PAC and labor union SEIU, Reps. Judy Biggert (R-Ill.) and Bob Dold (R-Ill.) are accused of "hiding behind Joe Walsh's loud talk." The ad will run in heavy rotation for two weeks.

Missouri-based PAC backing Walsh with big $$$

A super PAC has once again upped its bet on Congressman Joe Walsh, R-North Barrington, and now looks like it may well hit the $2 million mark on his behalf in the northwest suburban 8th District.

As of late Thursday, according to the Sunlight Foundation, the Now or Never PAC has reported spending $1.75 million here, mostly on TV ads promoting Mr. Walsh or zapping his Democratic foe, Tammy Duckworth.

The "independent" expenditures are up almost a half a million dollars just from earlier this week, with some tens of thousands of other spending by the group not yet reflected in Sunlight's database.

That's big money in anybody's ballpark — and is exactly what Ms. Duckworth told me at the Democratic National Convention that she feared would happen at the last minute.
