Clean Elections shenanigans in LD10

Tedski’s got a post up today about Rep. Doug Quelland’s little problem with overspending his Clean Election limits in the 2008 election. If it’s proven he committed campaign finance violations, he could be removed from office. But let’s not forget he wasn’t the only candidate in that district who gave local political junkies cause to […]

Budget draft released! It sucks!

But hey, the precious property tax cuts are saved! Oh wait… The House and Senate late Monday released a draft budget proposal that nearly closes the $3 billion deficit without a tax increase, borrowing or the sale of state assets. Instead, budget negotiators propose taking $300 million in projected balances from K-12, much of which […]

What John Kavanaugh meant to say

Tedski already did a full post on Senator Kavanaugh’s proposal that all college students pay a minimum of $1000 a year, regardless of how poor they are so I won’t belabor the point but there was one quote of Kavanaugh’s that needs some tweaking to make the subtext clear: It’s unfair.

AZ Republic editorial board taken over by the staff of The Onion

Has to be what happened. It’s the only logical explanation for this howler of an OpEd on possible torture prosecutions.

Well-read right wing blog links to us in paranoid screed.

I checked Technorati to see who’s been digging on the Divas (ranked 403,191st!) and I found that we’d been linked to Protein Wisdom (ranked 3496th). It’s not an outright quote but a hot link to the word misogyny in this phrase: Yet somehow it is those who have taken the definition as provided at face […]

The Maricopa County Republican Party Town Hall/Fundraiser

Hi y’all! Finally getting a chance to report on Thursday’s forum at the Scottsdale Library. I was supposed to do it yesterday, I know, but I didn’t get a chance to sit and sort it all out. I guess the Republicans are embarassed that they attempted to turn an open-to-the-public budget forum into a fundraiser […]
