Weekend Wrap-Up

-- Great Birmingham News analysis on campaign funding in the governor's race. Moore's money comes mostly from out of state while Riley gets most of his from PACs. Siegelman has plenty of Alabama support, but it doesn't add up to much and Baxley is a combination of all of the above.

-- New Poll on Riley Approval: 52% approval/43% disapproval . Last month had the Guv at 52/40.

-- Bush's approval actually improved in Alabama this month, while sinking at the national level. A new poll has him with 53% approval and 44% disapproval. Last month had him at 50/47 in Alabama. The improvement in Alabama comes as Bush's numbers actually ticked downward nationwide.

-- Speaking of the governor, the Hotline ranks Riley as the 15th most vulnerable governor (out of 38). That number does not sound especially high, but Riley is sandwiched between Govs Arnold Schwarzenegger (R-CA) and Rod Blagojevich (D-IL), who are both embattled incumbents with weak poll numbers. Not inspiring bookends for Riley.

-- Net activist Dr IQ has apparently gotten Don Siegelman on the record in favor of "Initiative and Referendum". You can see Siegelman's (and many others) reaction to I&R advocacy at Dr IQ's site.

-- Roy Moore broke with his campaign strategy recently and talked at length about the 2003 monument controversy.

-- Wire story on Ed Packard's run for Secretary of State.

-- Montgomery Circuit Judge William Shashy knows he wants to run for a seat on the Civil Appeals Court, he just doesn't know which one.

Individuals need to check out Shashy's contribution's pages in the SOS office. He always backs the Montgomery Advertiser, and in fact, is being donated quite profusely to, from the Advertisers' attorneys, and law firm. There are donations to him from even the WIVES of the attorneys. I know he stated in one case, in open court, in a defamation suit, that it didn't matter that a public official had lied, just wanted to know HOW that had influenced an election in which this official was running for re-election. Individuals might be surprised what they find out, if they become educated and start checking out the contributions of some of these judges.

Riley's weak numbers can be explained with one phrase, "Something about Bob". I think the middle just has doubts about his leadership. He ran on a platform of no new taxes, then proposed a huge tax increase once in office to save the state, which was overwhelmingly defeated, then changed the rules on property tax appraisals at the top of a real estate bubble that has increased everyone's taxes. Now the State has so much money they don't know what to do with it. It is just odd, and gives the impression that he just doesn't know what he is doing.

He's lucky he's running against the politically challenged Moore, rather than someone who wants to win the election.

The rankings referenced actually list Riley as the 7th most vulnerable incumbent. 7 of the races listed above him are open seats.

Anybody got any news on any of the U.S. House races?

US House in Alabama? Nothing interesting. Only two seats (Bonner's and Rodgers' 1st and 3rd) even have the potential for competition, but neither looks to draw a decent Dem opponent.

As far as the national scene, the Dems look like they are in position to possibly pick up as many as 8-10 seats right now in AZ, CT, PA, FL, OH, CO, NM, MN, IN, and Delay's seat in Texas, and maybe to lose one in IL. Right now the Dems seem to have a natural advantage, stemming from distrust of the Repub leadership, but that doesn't have too much of an effect on incumbents. Voters mostly hate everyone else's congressmen, but like their own. The only way the Dems take the House now is with about 8-10 more Repub retirements, on top of a lot of luck.

Shashy will clober Glenn Murdoch. It want even be close. As a trial Judge Shashy has handled tough cases. He's been decisive. If you compare records, Murdock can't compete with Shashy. Glenn will rue the day he changed his mind and entered this race.

Ruetheday, Shashy is decisive alright, but he's also DECIDED when it comes to making rulings before he enters the courtroom.

Shashy will clober Glenn Murdoch. It want even be close.

Doubtful, since they are running for different court seats. Murdock is running for the Supreme Court while Shashy is running for a spot on the Court of Civil Appeals.

Let's check our facts, people.

Shashy isn't even sure which seat to run for. Now doesn't that sound like a Susan Parker stunt? Not quite sure of which race, but jumping into one.

Zac: in the interest of full disclosure, will you reveal the individuals and organizations that are financially supporting your blog? And if not, why not?

Anonymous You Can't Handle The Truth said...

That's pretty funny coming from an anonymous poster.

I don't think Zac has any obligation to disclose anything. If you don't like it, don't read it.

I wish I had scores of organizations financially backing my blog. Unfortunately aside from the rare small donations from readers, it's all on me.

If AEA is donating money to this blog, how is that any different from a political party paying for good publicity?

Zac, do you have a personal connection to Joe Perkins, the Democratic consultant?

Anonymous You Can't Handle The Truth said...

OK boys, let's just go ahead and kill the messenger. I for one could not give a hampster's hiney if Zac is Joe Perkins' illegitimate son or if he lets Paul Hubbert cut his yard.
This a political opinion blog, for God's sake. Opinions, particularly political ones, all have biases, prejudices, and even overt leanings attached to them. I, for one, always assumed that Zac had connections (formal and informal) with various politicos and operatives all over our state. I don't remember Zac ever disclaiming these kind of relationships or pretending to be completely impartial. That's why I appreciate the fact that he usually provides a link to the source material he references. If you don't like what is posted here, quit reading.

I couldn't agree more with the last poster. Zac has done a wonderful job of providing facts,links, and information. If you don't like it you don't have to read it. Zac owes no one any kind of explanation. Enjoy the information you get and take it for what it is worth.

I for one very much enjoy reading the blog each day. Don't really care who and where the information comes from. Keep up the good work Zac.

The poster who mentioned Joe Perkins knows something. You can tell by the quick responses.
