She said what?!

On KJZZ’s Here and Now earlier today host Steve Goldstein interviewed Governor Brewer’s Chief of Staff Eileen Klein. He asked Klein about the proposed drastic cuts to AHCCCS.

Ron Gould seemed to be under the misapprehension that children born in the U.S. to immigrants with legal work visas were not automatically granted citizenship. Gould was, of course, wrong.

Sen. Linda Gray blames Roe v Wade for Tucson shooting. Seriously.

Per TPMDC: Politico’s Ben Smith reports that Gray did an interview Sunday on George Washington University Radio’s “Political Pulse,” and said: “So now we have this generation of people who have that idea and it continues on, that why respect life if we can kill an infant who can’t defend themselves. It goes back to […]

Corp Comm Chair Pierce announces he will drink the Renewable Energy Standard’s milkshake.

The hearing is going on now. New Corporation Commission Chairman Gary Pierce, being the new Sheriff in town, and for no reason other than showing the treehuggers that we are not the boss of him, is reopening the December 2010 decision approving the Arizona Public Service Company (APS) Renewable Energy Implementation Plan. APS is not […]
