An Arizona Politico Makes Us Proud Again

Arizona based consultant Nate Sproul has gotten caught committing voter registration fraud again. I mean allegedly, of course. The Republican National Committee has sacked his firm, but this sort of thing seems to be Sproul’s raison d’être. At some point people have to stop giving organizations that hire Sproul the benefit of the doubt. He […]

What? His Name’s Rebus? Uncle Remus?

Reince Priebus is not a concept in Roman Law, it is the name of the guy they just elected Chairman of the Republican National Committee. Reince Preibus. It sounds vaguely foreign, donnit? Anyone check his papers?

Ash Attacks Giffords’s Faith

After the jump is a post on Doug Martin’s blog. Martin is with Good News Communications, the folks that bring you KVOI and KGMS.

Why, He’s As Busy As a…Naw, I Won’t Go There

I’ve received a couple of e-mails from folks asking me when Tim Bee was going to resign. It didn’t occur to me that such a thing would be imminent, but he may need to sooner rather than later. There are two things Bee has to do before he tries to take down Gabrielle Giffords in the next […]
