Up and Running

Ward 2 council candidate Rodney Glassman’s campaign website is up and running. You can check it out here.

Giffords’s Debut Speech

As I wrote earlier, Gabrielle Giffords made her first remarks on the House floor last Friday. She made them during Special Orders on the topic of immigration: (Ms. GIFFORDS asked and was given permission to address the House for 1 minute.) Ms. GIFFORDS. Mr. Speaker, I rise today to speak for the very first time […]


A quick visit to Randy Camacho’s website and you may notice some changes to his endorsement list. One thing is that both Raúl Grijalva and Ed Pastor have disappeared from the list. Both had been touted early on as endorsers of Camacho, especially when it looked like the field would be open. Both of them […]

Ma, I Made the Paper…Again!

Yesterday’s Tucson Citizen carried an Anne Denogean column about Sen. Jack Harper’s bill to mandate that candidates for legislature must submit to a drug test upon filing. The column was inspired by my post last week about the bill, and it even quotes my witty and brilliant prose on the subject. When I make the […]


Interesting bit in Roll Call yesterday. Should John McCain win the presidency, or even if he resigns his seat upon nomination, Governor Janet Napolitano would appoint a successor. Unlike in some states, any appointee has to be of the same party as the person they are replacing. This means that Napolitano would have to find […]

My Last Entry on the State Chair Races? Naw.

Saturday I, and I’m assuming other members of the State Committee, recieved my first communication from David Waid. It was a letter detailing his accomplishments as chair including an impressive fundraising effort (four times as much as the Republican Party) and an increase in vote by mail applications by 30%. I was suprised to get […]

One Year Before

This is an excerpt of a speech that Dr. Martin Luther King gave on April 4th, 1967. You can find the full text of the speech here, along with audio. My third reason moves to an even deeper level of awareness, for it grows out of my experience in the ghettoes of the North over […]

Mitchell Now As Cool As “Numa Numa” Guy

Rep. Harry Mitchell gave his first speech on the house floor the other day, and it is now posted to YouTube. Our other newly elected representative also made her debut speech this week, but it hasn’t been posted anywhere that I can find. The Arizona Democratic Party posted this video (it is the only one […]

Southern Lousiana Congressman Delivers Fouetté to Lieberman

I got some grief from one of my readers after a shot I took at Joe Lieberman. The poster complained that I and other posters were not recognizing the breadth of the Democratic coalition, and seemed to imply that anarchists like me were about to take the whole party down. Well, this was silly for […]

The No Beckham Zone

I’ve had a couple of people ask me, “Hey, you’re a soccer fan, why haven’t you said anything about David Beckham on your blog?” Well, the fact is, I have. I have two posts on Beckham playing for the Galaxy (a team I dislike that will now be even more fun to root against) over […]
