Senador, Por Favor, No Cante.

I’m sure some of you have seen it already. Earlier this week, Ted Kennedy attempted to sing a song called “Ay, Jalisco, No Te Rajes” at a Barack Obama rally. I have always had a lot of repsect for Sen. Kennedy (and it’s not the name thing, he’s Edward and I’m Theodore (or Edmond…)), but […]

Evan Mecham

Evan Mecham died today. I hate to say it, but it is really difficult for me to come up with anything that resembles a eulogy here. Perhaps this is because I am either a dissident Democrat or part of the militant homosexual lobby. His impeachment shortened term embarassed a state that I am usually so […]

Rick Renzi Rain Whisper

What’s good about this blogging enterprise is that some of the work gets done for you. For example, I haven’t had the chance to peruse the Rick Renzi indictment, but one of the R-Cubed Legion has (you can peruse it yourself, I uploaded it here). One part of the allegations deal with James Sandlin, Renzi’s pal, […]

Mo’s Words: Always Relevant

I recieved a missive from one of my senior correspondents today consisting only of two short quotes: For several weeks, I have been the subject of leaked stories, conjecture, and false attacks about a land exchange. None of them bear any resemblance to the truth, including the rumor that I am planning on resigning. Rick […]

Breaking: Renzi Indicted

The Associated Press is reporting that Rick Renzi has been indicted.

Another Portrait in Principle

So, John Shadegg made it official…he’s running for re-election after all. This offers us Arizonenses a chance to further enjoy the fruits of the legislative brilliance of Pamela Gorman and Jim Waring. The talk among political chaterers is that Shadegg’s resignation stunt was done to get himself a position in leadership. So much for “I need […]

Some Thoughts On This Whole McCain Thing

First off, I’m going to disappoint many of you (I’m looking at you, Mom) when I say that I don’t believe that John McCain had a sexual relationship with this lobbyist that they are talking about. For one thing, I think Cindy would fry up his testicles with the morning eggs and serve them to him […]

Guns Don’t Kill People; Gay People Getting Married on the Other Hand…

The bill (well it’s two bills, actually, but let’s not get all technical) that would put a ban on gay marriage on the ballot next year seems to be making its way through both houses of the legislature. The amusing moments in the hoo-hah over this item happened last week when people started asking Tim […]

Pot, Meet Kettle Department

During hearings earlier this week on getting rid of the onerous “bare period” for Health Care Group, an insurance lobbyist dismissed support for the bill from various medical associations by complaining that those guys are just supporting the bill because they want to make money.

Guns Don’t Kill People; But Untrained People Who Carry Guns Can

As someone who comes from a family of gun owners, I suppose I should weigh in on the latest “Guns in inappropriate places” bill. In the past, such bills would have, for example, mandated that bar and restaurant owners would have to allow people to carry guns in their establishments. Meaning that the right of a […]
