What’s up in the Political Derby today?

Scott Conroy of RCP writes about the timing considerations of Romney’s VP announcement.

Politico says democrats efforts to oust Scott Walker in Wisconsin are fizzling out as they limp toward the line.

The Fix reminds us that Obama could face primary embarrassment again tonight, this time in Arkansas. Could it get any worse than WV, where Obama lost 41% of the vote to a convict in Texas?

    All good topics.  The Walker news is especially exciting because it proves again that
    being strongly conservative, holding to convictions and taking on special interests can
    be done successfully.  It is a mental boost to us all as we get closer to the November
    goal line.  Coupled with the Tea-Blast in Nebraska where a Tea-Bee beat the chosen
    RINO for  the senate nomination, it is strong stuff.  And, on a personal note, my own
    challenge to the Republican County Commissioner in my county is feeling pretty good.
    I am on the ballot against a hometown boy who has held the office for 8 years and has
    spent foolishly, voted three times to raise taxes, and has an arrogant attitude.  I am
    an “outsider”, a “newbie”, but this is not about me, it is about taxpayers anger at the
    courthouse.  I like my chances… stay tuned.

    I frankly do not understand how the national polls do not reflect the frustration I see and hear.  I take heart in knowing that the blue states must be very blue and that while Obomb
    might be ahead there 60-40, we are still protected by the electoral system and so the big
    cities and biggest states, with their throngs of hand-out liberals, can not dominate us
    completely.

    Finally, I will add to today’s open thread the deep and thoughtful presentation that Rush made yesterday about the move to dump Biden and replace him with Hillary.  Rush drew lots of lines
    between some very interesting points and seemed to reach a logical conclusion:  to get the
    women’s vote back to the fever pitch of 08, Hillary would be key.  If I were Biden, I would
    not be sleeping well…

    Let’s talk more tonight; they need me at the golf club now.  Somebody has to do it!
