AZ GOP Chair points to lack of strife among Democrats as evidence of “severe and personal” “divisions”.

You know how President Obama hasn’t enacted draconian gun control laws and confiscated everyone’s guns but wingnuts insist that his lack of action in that area proooooves he’s coming for all your guns?

Pretty soon breathing will be “welfare”

My last post was about Governor Brewer’s “Letter to Fellow Republicans” and the response it got from an outfit called United Republican Alliance of Principled Conservatives, which claims to be formed of Arizona Republican precinct committeemen in opposition to the Medicaid expansion.

Chris Hayes on MSNBC opened his Monday evening broadcast with a montage of clips of the Trayvon Martin killing and prosecution of George Zimmerman, which ended in clips of the verdict and the defense team’s press conference afterward. I watched defense attorney Mark O’Mara say (something along the lines of) “we’ll never know what motivated […]

Why is another campaign paying Warren Stewart’s consultant?

Michael Johnson currently serves as a Phoenix City Councilman in District 8. He is termed out and as far as I know is not running for any other office at this time. He has $7,216.38 cash on hand, according to his latest campaign finance report. Johnson’s committee raised $0 and there was a single disbursement […]
