Business leaders are who put us on this course

Kathleen Ingley is one of my favorite writers at the AZ Republic and her op-ed today is a must read. It’s a clear and concise accounting of how decades of tax cuts, gimmicks, and fiscal foolishness have brought Arizona to our current economic misfortune. And she doesn’t blame Clean Elections, for which she gets several […]

Sine die isn’t even cold and it’s already started

Per today’s Capitol Times Yellow Sheet: It is also probable that Paton’s campaign will include the former state senator’s wry sense of humor. When asked if Clean Elections supporters’ claims of the pervasive influence of special interest money will ring a bell with voters, Paton quipped: “I thought Clean Elections was supposed to fix all […]

In which I explain, once again, that it was NOT Clean Elections that caused everything

Big day at the lege. Gov. Brewer vetoed the infamous Birther Bill (and the Guns Absolutely Everywhere one, which surprised me).

We’re going to be discussing Arpaio’s latest misspending foibles and the sucktastically bad bills coming […]

They’re sex fiends.

Truly. I had big plans for this past weekend. I was going to through my clothes. Y’all know what an ordeal that is. “These pants haven’t fit me in six years but if I start going to the gym regularly again…” But then there was this federal budget showdown dealio last week where the GOP […]

Our rich overlords are superior to us because, why?

In the 2008 Maricopa County Sheriff’s race, there were some rich people who thought it would be cute to run nasty ads against the guy who had the temerity to run against Joe Arpaio. They set up an illegal slush fund to do just that. The organizers of this endeavor and their donors were so […]
