Defending Clean Elections is about more than Clean Elections.

I’ve been meaning to blog about this since I saw it Saturday morning but other things came up. Now that Clean Elections repeal appears to be headed to the ballots in November I figured it was a good time. Up With Chris Hayes on MSNBC (which is excellent BTW) had a panel discussion last Saturday […]

This has me deeply worried

The word is that Phoenix City Councilman and tenacious watchdog of the taxpayer Sal DiCiccio is going to run for Congress in CD9. Well, I must say that as a Democrat, I find this development to be very troubling since Sal will undoubtedly win the GOP primary in a cakewalk and be a most formidable […]

Don’t let the door hit you on the way out, Daniel.

Per Dylan Smith of The Tucson Sentinel on Rep. Daniel Patterson’s latest domestic violence allegations: Patterson said Escobar has bipolar disorder, PTSD, and ADHD. “I think she’s stopped taking her medication,” he said.

I’m intrigued by WaPo blogger Greg Sargent’s coverage of the GOP contraception kerfluffle because he’s been following a key demographic polling trend on it – unmarried women. Among this group, Obama now leads Romney 65 percent to 30 percent, and there has been a net 18-point swing toward the president since November. After unmarried women […]

A viewing suggestion for Paul Babeu and other “states rights” people

At Sheriff Paul Babeu’s press conference yesterday where he came out as a gay man (and denied threatening his ex with deportation as the man alleges), Babeu was asked about his position on gay marriage. He recited the standard libertarian line about civil unions and “states rights”. I got increasingly irritated with Babeu as he […]

Trent Franks is paranoid and apparently unfamiliar with the history of another famously paranoid Republican.

Here’s what Arizona Congressman Trent Franks said in an interview with Concerned Women of America (motto: “We’re concerned!”): The greatest challenge we have, and I’m going to be partisan for a moment but its reality, we must change presidents. At all costs, we must change presidents. This is the most pro-abortion president in the history […]
