Sunday Square Off and election night coverage

Your Diva will be doing both. I’m on Square Off with Greg Patterson (of Espresso Pundit) and Chris Herstam, 12 News political insider and consultant. That’s tomorrow at 8am on Channel 12 (or online for you kittycats that sleep in on Sunday). Tuesday night is a reprise of Primary election eve. I’ll be on the […]

Russell Pearce is a bigot but he’s not a true believer.

He’s not and his involvement with Corrections Corporation of America (CCA) and the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC) in the drafting of SB1070 make it more obvious than any explanation I can give you.

We got a flyer from LD11 Republican House candidate Kate Brophy McGee today. Glad to see her waste her money since 1) we’re solid Dems and 2) we’ve already voted. For Eric Meyer. What caught my eye about McGee’s flyer was who paid for it. Who knew that a woman who lives in north central […]
