Bill O’Reilly, the Republican spokesman, is leaving the communication firm he founded nine years to join a firm headed by former Rudy Giuliani aides George Lence and Cristyne Nicholas.
O’Reilly’s Midtown-based firm had lately specialized in Republican clients running against the Republican establishment: they handled conservative Republican John Faso’s Read More
Some Park Avenue duplexes have simply too much herringbone and acanthus moldings or Juliet balconies and neoclassical staircase banisters to fall into non-conservative hands.
One-time G.O.P. Senate hopeful K.T. McFarland has sold her 13-room apartment at 770 Park to W.L. (Lee) Lyons Brown Jr., a former George W. Bush–appointed ambassador to Austria. He paid Read More
Back in the warm confines of City Hall, I caught this moment on Fox News.
It’s former Senate candidate KT McFarland talking about national security issues on, arguably, the channel most Republican primary voters choose to watch.
It’s especially interesting to see McFarland playing ball with Fox, whose owner was condemned by her Read More
So if you think turnout is going to be low for the Democrats, just think about the Republicans. Without primaries for governor or attorney general to attract voters to the polls, the only thing going for them — from the perspective of moving voters to polling places — is the Jerry Springer-esque Senate contest between Read More
Tomorrow is Primary Day!

John Spencer is going statewide with the 30-second biographical ad he released right before his debate with KT McFarland last month. A Spencer spokesman said they’ll be running the ad on cable, since, according to their research, Republican primary votes watch plenty of cable news (read: Fox News).
Spencer’s other ads, with images of Read More
During a very friendly appearance on conservative commentator Glenn Beck’s radio show, Greg Sargent reports, Joe Lieberman agreed with just much of what Beck said, including that the real reason we invaded Iraq wasn’t over WMD but because we wanted to “pop the head of the snake in Iran.”
After receiving some attention from Read More
Family problems have plagued KT McFarland’s campaign for months, so maybe it should come as no surprise that yet another family scandal has perhaps delivered the knockout blow to her weak campaign for U.S. Senate.
“This past Saturday, my 16-year-old daughter, Camilla, was caught shoplifting from two stores in Suffolk County, NY. She was Read More
Short, sweet, and to the point. Notice the prominent use of the word ‘fiasco’ with the close-up of Andrew Cuomo. So is ‘comparison’ now a euphemism for, uh, attack? (Attack via surrogates, but still…)
But what else do you expect from the Blue Donkey Group, whose message on their website is “I want Read More
Now that was a nasty debate.
I’m not sure that either John Spencer or KT McFarland will have been helped by their televised confrontation on NY1 last night. McFarland talked about Spencer’s marital problems, and he told that she ought to be ashamed of her comments “as a mother of children.”
