A good read from Charles Lane in The Washington Post, The Democrats’ dubious alliance with public sector unions. The following sums it up well:

In politics, you never want to find yourself beholden to a minority whose core interests often clash with the interests of voters. Yet that is exactly where Democrats at all levels of government could find themselves after Nov. 2.

I read that Joe Miller’s opponents have come out and publicly criticized him after the incident at his constituent’s town hall meeting this week.

The hill.com report titled: Murkowski, McAdams both blast Miller for reporter’s detainment:

Incumbent Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-Alaska) and Democrat Scott McAdams blasted GOP opponent Joe Miller for betraying constitutional principles on Sunday after his security guards detained a reporter who tried to ask him a question following a town-hall event.

“We call on [Miller] to immediately disavow the actions of his private security guards for violating the constitutional rights of a United States citizen by illegally detaining him,” Murkowski said in a statement. “I find it alarming that Joe feels he needs to hire security forces to protect him from Alaskan voters and members of the press.

However, in the same story they report:

The Anchorage police also noted to reporters that security guards are permitted by law to make “private person arrests.”

Too bad Miller’s opponents don’t care about the facts!

A typical Progressive’s agenda – if someone disagrees with us, then let’s lie about them because the American people are too stupid to know the difference. This unstable, Tony Hopfinger blogger, is reported by numerous Liberal/Progressive as Editor-in-chief of the Alaska Dispatch. It’s a blog site for crying out loud. Ok, the editor-in-chief of his basement is more like it. By admission, this clown was restrained by private security guards at a Joe Miller townhall meeting, after he assaulted one of the guards. The only information I could find, initially, was from numerous Progressive hater sites claiming Joe Miller had an editor-in-chief  of the Alaska Dispatch arrested for asking him a question on public grounds. This pervert followed Miller in the bathroom trying to ask him questions. Too bad the Progressive idiots reporting this yesterday didn’t watch the story from a local Alaska TV station, where Mr. Hopfinger admitted pushing a security guards after the guards got in his personal space.

Joe took the opportunity to clear these lies up on both CNN and Fox News. Lastly, you find Mr. Hopfinger’s video confession. Enjoy.

You probably read of the dispute between the VFW and their VFW-PAC endorsements for the 2010 mid-terms.. I thought it was a joke when they bypassed fellow veteran Allen West for rabid progressive Joe Klein in Florida. But after seeing the list of endorsements, I don’t see how the VFW can continue the VFW-PAC as a viable and respectable organization. Please, Meeks over Rubio, support for Pelosi and Boxer. No Jim DeMint in SC, but a yes for Jim Clyburn. Below, is a brief sample of the endorsements, with the entire list found here.

McCain, John (R)
Boxer, Barbara (D)
Harman, Jane (D)
Lee, Barbara (D)
Pelosi, Nancy (D)
Waxman, Henry (D)
Hoyer, Steny (D)
Wasserman Schultz, Debbie (D)
Meek, Kendrick (D)
Klein, Ron (D)
Grayson, Alan (D)
Jackson, Jesse (D)
Hare, Phil (D)
Dingell, John (D)
Levin, Sander (D)
Schumer, Charles (D)
Weiner, Anthony (D)
DeFazio, Peter (D)
Sestak, Joe (D)
Clyburn, James (D)
Jackson Lee, Sheila (D)
Boehner, John (R)
Leahy, Patrick (D)
Maxine Waters (D)
Barney Frank (D)
John Conyers Jr. (D)
Harry Reid (D)

This looks more like a list of socialist wannabes. It appears this group has been hijacked by the kind of folks who took over AARP and NRA, which now support continued government largess. What a joke. I hope the VFW-PAC is dissolved. I’m still scratching my head over the Ron Klein endorsement over Allen West. Seeing they picked John Dingle, they must be anticipating some of John Dingle’s “Good and Plenty Clause”. Somebody has been bought and paid for at the VFW-PAC.

VFW-PAC is a joke that supports continued corruption of our political system.
