  • Ted Cruz's Stunning Victory Over Iowa's Ethanol Cartel

    If Donald Trump is the Tony Soprano of American politics, Ted Cruz is a less-affable version of Mr. Haney from Green Acres (Ok - not quite, but sort of! Do feel free to say, H&R readers, which movie character is a better fit with Cruz). But the only thing cleverer than Cruz's impression of Inigo Montoya in Princess Bride (and not the least because it irritates Billy Crystal and the insufferably self-righteous Mandy Patinkin so much) is the campaign strategy he devised in Iowa to defeat the ethanol cartel and win the primary, I note in my column at The...

    Texas Land Commissioner George P. Bush is pushing back hard on a news report that hes shirking his official state duties to campaign for his fathers presidential campaign. The Houston Chronicle on Sunday reported that Bush was out of the office for the equivalent of 23 of the first 50 workdays since his dad, Jeb, announced his White House bid. That tally came from an analysis of the younger Bushs official schedule. But a Bush spokesman said in a lengthy, open letter that the report was inaccurate and that Bush had tended to state business for 50 of 63 days...

"Residents are reconsidering the image of the Golden State and showing more ambivalence toward it," said Jack Citrin, a Berkeley political science professor who co-wrote the report. "The changes going on - socially, culturally, economic - have made people here less Pollyannaish about the reality of life here."

President Obama has a long history with several radical groups, including the Communist Party USA. The communists naturally want to protect their "friend" from negative fallout should such associations become publicly known. It seems they are even willing to censor or alter their own publications to hide evidence of their past support for the President. Thankfully "wayback" provides proof positive...

    It wasn't a purr-fect crime after all. Sources said last night that cops had caged the "Cat Lady," the serial stick-up artist who dons clever disguises -- including a cat mask -- to rob high-end boutiques around the city. The suspect was identified as Shanna Spalding, 28, of Queens, who sings with a death-metal band called Divine Infamy under her stage name, Purgatory. The burqa-clad suspect was picked up in SoHo after bursting into a Greene Street boutique with a gun and demanding cash, sources said. ...Cops said they had noticed her prior to the heist, and followed her to...

    There's a fascinating YouTube video that explains exactly how Barack Obama was elected. It's titled "Obama voters-Brainwashed with Change." None of those interviewed in this video can articulate exactly what they think Obama stands for other than change. The voters are black, white, young and old but they all believe that Obama as president will bring a change to the government.(snip)many are now disappointed that the change is hardly what they were expecting but astute observers of Obama know that the he's done exactly what he was groomed to do

    One of the most flogged excuses by both Palin and her supporters for her resignation as Governor of Alaska was that ethics complaints were "bankrupting" her. But the Independent Council Report issued in conjunction with the decision on her Legal Defense Fund says otherwise. Not only does it show the State of Alaska offered to make payments for her legal costs it shows that even bfore the election the Palin campaign was making alternate plans to not only get the McCain campaign to pay for them but to hit up the Rnc AND set up a legal defense fund. When...

So, how come there are photos of good ole Charlie at a corporate event during one of the junkets ... and photos of corporate signs all around his lying arse?
