HRC AZ disappoints with Ethan “Bros Before Hoes” Orr endorsement as news media fawn over his weed announcement

I learned via good sources on Facebook earlier that the Human Rights Campaign of Arizona has decided to endorse incumbent Ethan Orr (R) along with Dr. Randall Freise (D) for Legislative District 9. It’s bad enough they are snubbing Orr’s seatmate Victoria Steele (D) but they are throwing their support to a guy who has […]

AZ Republic won’t endorse in any Legislative race in the general election

I got forwarded an email by a Dem consultant earlier. It was an exchange between a Dem campaign manager and an editor at the AZ Republic. I’m not calling this particular editor out because this is endemic problem at the paper and it is clearly coming from the top. Here’s the editor’s brusque reply to […]

Sorry Republicans, the Honduran refugees aren’t this year’s “headless bodies”

On Tuesday morning, some goobers in Arizona thought they were going to repeat what goobers in Murrieta, CA did last week, when they got a bus full of refugees from Honduras to turn around, and border agents to stop sending anymore migrant children through their community, by being screaming assholes. Sadly for the Arizona effort, […]

A demonstration via Venn Diagram for a couple of AZ Dem delegation members

Borrowing a page from Atrios, I’m going to just put this out there for Reps. Ron Barber of AZ CD2 and Kyrsten Sinema of CD9. Note the complete lack of overlap between those two groups of people. I’m honestly mystified by their votes. There’s nothing here to even impress dimwitted centrist pundits. My first guess […]

Dirty, unsafe clinic found in Tucson. Pro-lifers, where are you?

Per the Arizona Daily Star: Gustavo Nuñez, 50, and Ilda Garcia, 39, were arrested Aug. 1 and face felony charges, including possession of dangerous drugs and practicing medicine without a license, said Ramona Sanchez, a Drug Enforcement Administration special agent. The two were booked into the Pima County jail, and released on their own recognizance, […]

A reminder that proponents of Prop 102 lied to Arizona in 2008

In 2006 Prop 107 would have added the following words to the Arizona State Constitution: “To preserve and protect marriage in this state, only a union between one man and one woman shall be valid or recognized as a marriage by this state or its political subdivisions and no legal status for unmarried persons shall […]

The AZ Democratic Party is neither Tammany Hall nor a group of venture capitalists

This editorial appeared in Saturday’s AZ Republic. Nomiki Konst was a candidate for Congress in CD2 (Ron Barber’s seat) and claims she was “pushed out” of the race. In a year when Democrats triumphed against the odds, Arizona Democrats blew it. President Barack Obama built an historic victory by continuing the construction of a coalition […]
