Campaign 2014 is about firing Harry Reid

Traditionally, the campaign season does not begin until after labor day weekend but I thought I would show these two video illustrating the theme for the Republicans this election cycle.

This was released by the GOP about a week ago and it highlights the latest scandal involving the beleaguered Democrat senator from Louisiana, Mary Landrieu

This next one is another classic from the Washington Free Beacon.

A net gain of six senate seats will remove this guy as majority leader. Heading into the season, it’s looking good for the Republicans. Currently, Realclearpolitics.com has them with a 7 seat pickup. Many of the races are close and this number will be fluid in the coming weeks. If the Republicans play their cards right we are looking at a potential 10 seat gain. Anything less than the six seats need to regain the majority, will be considered a loss for GOP.

The New Jerseyan obligatory 39 years ago today post

Having lived my life in the Garden State, I am obligated to celebrate this day: August 25, 1975, Bruce Springsteen released his iconic album “Born to Run.” Unlike many other New Jerseyans, I am not a big Springsteen fan, even before I knew about his political views. Even non fans can appreciate his talent and passion.

While there are numerous great songs on the album, for me, my favorite is “She’s the one.”  I don’t think there’s a guy who grew up in Jersey who, at one point in their life, related to this song and, in many cases, more than once:

With her killer graces and her secret places
That no boy can fill with her hands on her hips
Oh and that smile on her lips
Because she knows that it kills me
With her soft french cream
Standing in that doorway like a dream
I wish she’d just leave me alone
Because french cream won’t soften them boots
And french kisses will not break that heart of stone
With her long hair falling
And her eyes that shine like a midnight sun
Oh-o she’s the one, she’s the one

That Thunder in your heart
At night when you’re kneeling in the dark
It says you’re never gonna leave her
But there’s this angel in her eyes
That tells such desperate lies
And all you want to do is believe her
And tonight you’ll try just one more time
To leave it all behind and to break on through
Oh she can take you, but if she wants to break you
She’s gonna find out that ain’t so easy to do
And no matter where you sleep tonight or how far you run
Oh-o she’s the one, she’s the one

Oh-o and just one kiss
She’d fill them long summer nights
With her tenderness that secret pact you made
Back when her love could save you from the bitterness
Oh she’s the one, oh she’s the one
Oh she’s the one, oh she’s the one

About the execution of James Foley

I know I dedicate Sunday’s as a my day of laughter, but given the event of this past week, I’m just not in a laughing mood.  The execution of James Foley should be a wake up call for all.

From Mark Streeter:

mightier than the sword

From Randy Bish:

From Nate Beeler:
