To no one’s surprise, the Republic endorses Jeff Flake

Oh brother. Impending “fiscal cliffs.” Unprecedented national debt. Trillion-dollar annual deficits. These are the great issues of our day, like it or not. We cannot wish them away. About their resolution, the nation has two choices: We can do nothing (or too little) and let the consequences roll over us as they are now in […]

War on women? What war on women?

Okay, so I watched both the livestreamed AZ Republic editorial board interview of Richard Carmona and Jeff Flake and the Horizon forum featuring the Senatorial candidates on Channel 8.

Democrats were discouraged from running in the recall and the Democrat who did file was exposed […]

Speaking of which, is Flake going to distance himself from Romney’s 47% […]

Jeff Flake is not a nice person

Jeff Flake may win in November, largely on the strength of being perceived as moderate by many people outside of Arizona’s conservative political circles. Flake is frequently reviled among righties as a RINO, yet he received the overwhelming majority of votes in the GOP primary against Wil Cardon. That was because Republican primary voters know […]
