DAILY GRINDER: The Debates Are Over—Here are Five Takeaways

...The debates are over. God bless America. Like many of you (I assume), I am very happy the debates are over and Mitt Romney and Barack Obama will never, ever have to publicly speak to each other again. The general consensus of last night’s debate was that the president won pretty handily, but whatever. Who cares? It’s just a foreign policy...

DAILY GRINDER: Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee Off Philly TV

They send this in their emails. The national Democratic Party—specifically, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, or as I like to call them, “D-Trip,” are not going out of their way to help their candidates in the Philadelphia area with TV ads, which is why it’s basically only Tom Smith for Senate and Americans for Prosperity (against...

DAILY GRINDER: After Debate, Mayor Nutter Calls Romney ‘Make Believe Mitt’

Mayor Nutter had a thing or two to say about Mitt Romney after last night’s debate.

The Libertarian Party will stay on the ballot in Pennsylvania, despite Republican lawyers doing their damndest to kick candidate Gary Johnson off.

DAILY GRINDER: Nutter Gets Involved in Romney T-shirt Flap at ‘Un-American’ School

She wasn't wearing these. But they exist. And that's weird. In case you missed it: A teacher at Charles Carroll High School in Port Richmond is accused of ridiculing one of her students, Samantha Pawlucy, in class for wearing a Mitt Romney t-shirt on ‘Dress down day.’ According to the Inquirer, “Gaymon pointed out the shirt in class, then went...

DAILY GRINDER: Voter ID Decision Today

A decision in the Voter ID case is due today—and no matter what Judge Robert Simpson decides this time, it is not over. Not even close! The best he can do is delay the law, not destroy it.
