Stop with this “don’t talk about your opponents!” nonsense

The thing is, I keep starting blog posts, which have tended to take a day or more to complete in most cases (not writing, but finding time to edit and format) but the news cycle changes etch-a-sketch quickly so I often abandon them but, screw it, I’m finishing this one. OMG you should have seen […]

McSally announces Senate bid, fails to condemn Trump’s racism, still wants you to think she’s cool

As I’ve mentioned lo these many times about Arizona Republicans, there is a highly successful subset of them who, despite their obvious lack of interest in competent governance of any kind, are impressively adept at what is known to political junkies as “working the refs” or “manipulating mainstream pundits”.

It was being shoved down our throats, we were told. No one voting on the bill had really read it, supposedly. Tyranny! A number of House members […]

Ducey trying to have it both ways on health care

One of the more tedious but hard-to-shake obsessions in politics is the fetish for consistency, whereby it’s viewed a weakness for a politician to change their mind or admit they were wrong about something, even when presented with an abundance of evidence for why they should change their view. It most famously did “flip flopper” […]

Sit down, GOP men of Arizona

https://t.co/zvBAPEMXaM Oh yay, another Republican man talking at a woman who is much smarter than him like she’s a small child. — Amanda Marcotte (@AmandaMarcotte) March 22, 2017 Well, Trump’s Electoral College victory sure has given some of our local male GOP reps a turgid sense of urgency in showing the uppity bitches what’s what.
