Obamarama

Barack Obama’s Tucson office is having a grand opening tommorrow at six. The office is located in Midway Buisiness Park, 4500 E Speedway, Suite 26/27. F. Ann Rodriguez and Karin Uhlich are scheduled to attend. The event is scheduled for the same time as the New England Revolution take on Obama’s hometown team, the Chicago […]

A Thorn to Them, I Guess

One of the things that bothers me about coverage of political stories is the “plague on both their houses” attitude that seems to emerge when there is a negative campaign. This happens whether or not the attacks are substantive, or even whether or not both campaigns are engaged in it. Take the Rodney Glassman – […]

You Like Me, You Really Like Me

I hadn’t acknowledged it yet, but Sunday’s Arizona Republic featured a story on blogs and included this one as one of three “must reads.” Of course, this is an indication of good taste and refinement on the part of our state’s leading daily and paper of record. Here is the suprising part: Barrett Marson, spokesman […]

Lawyers, No Guns, but Some Money

The first official salvo in next year’s Pima County Attorney race has been fired. A group called Citizens for Justice has been formed and has put together a website detailing what they see as problems with Barbara Lawall’s stewardship of her office. The allegations are well sourced, with all of them being presented as articles […]

That’s Pan Meksikański to You, Pal!

In a stuning upset, Michael Nowakowski defeated Laura Pastor for a Phoenix City Council seat. Look for this to mean an epic battle between Nowakowski and my brother for leadership at the next meeting of the Arizona Council of Polish-Mexican Elected Officials.

Hmm…Better Luck Next Time

Wow…I guess the innuendos about Rodney Glassman’s family, e-mailed whispering campaigns and stupid doll stunts worked. They kept his total to less than that all important 61% level. Good job fellas.

There’s an Elephant in the Room

In a couple of hours, I’ll be going to the election night party that the Democrats are holding. After the last two elections, we Democrats have been treated (and I use the term loosely) to appearances by Republican officials. Both the 2005 and 2006 elections were fantastic nights for Democrats, no doubt they wanted to […]

Last Minute Endorsement

See, when you don’t check your e-mails for a while, you miss out. This was a gem that sat unread in my mailbox since Friday: Some of you may think this unusual, but I would like you to vote for Beryl Baker in the Ward 1 Tucson City Council election? Let’s talk straight for a […]

Election Day!

Today is election day! Get out there and vote! Since it is election day, R-Cubed will be engaging in a “news blackout” this morning. This is in the public interest. Either that, or I would have to admit that I have no idea what to write this morning.

Another for the “Um, Yeah…” File

There was yet another interview with voters in a Godforsaken milltown in New Hampshire, because these folks have been selected by Providence to tell the rest of us which presidential candidates to vote for. Yep, because the voters of New Hampshire are just better quality Americans than those of us consigned to live in warmer […]
