The State Houses – What’s At Stake in 2010

Thirty-nine states will be electing a governor during the 2009-2010 election cycle. Of these, eighteen races will not include an incumbent and four incumbents who will be running were not elected to their current position. The recession and huge budget deficits threaten to undercut the power of incumbency for governors running for reelection.

TN: Ramsey Plays the Islamo-Fascist Card

By · Jul, 28 2010

Another Republican has gone back to the Rove/Giuliani mid-decade playbook. A couple of weeks ago it was Rick Lazio demagoguing about the mosque in Lower Manhattan.

Now, it’s Tennessee Lt. Gov Ron Ramsey who has taken the “terrorist under every turban” mantra a step further by questioning whether or not Islam is a “cult.” ┬áTrailing Bill Haslam and secessionist C Streeter Zach Wamp in next week’s GOP primary, Ramsey is desperately trying to gain traction among the GOP base.

Someone needs to point out that Rudy Giuliani’s “9/11, verb, 9/11″ shtick didn’t work in 2008. Why do they think it might work now?
