    A Texas Republican plans to introduce a resolution of Articles of Impeachment for Attorney General Eric Holder on Thursday. Rep. Pete Olson’s (R-Texas) office said this morning that “this was not a decision made lightly,” but comes with Holder’s “pattern of disregard for the rule of law and refusal to be forthright with Congress and the American people” since being held in contempt in June 2012. That 255-67 vote on criminal contempt, which included 17 Democrats, was tied to the Fast and Furious scandal and marked the first time Congress has found an attorney general in contempt. A measure of...

    Several Republican lawmakers are urging a federal district court in California to block the removal of a war memorial cross in a San Diego public park that was declared unconstitutional in 2011. "We're urging the court to permit a private organization to obtain and operate the war memorial – a remedy that would remove any constitutional questions and protect this longstanding tribute to our men and women in uniform," Sekulow said in a statement. The legal fight over the Mount Soledad cross began in 1989 when atheist Philip Paulson sued the city of San Diego.

    Everyone's been waiting for something to carry us over and beyond this flag silliness. Mac Collins may have just done it. If he should jump into the 2004 U.S. Senate race against fellow Republican Johnny Isakson, we'll be able to stop talking about battle emblems and stars and bars. Republicans would now be able to ask each other what side of a philosophical chasm they stand on. And the rest of Georgia can simply watch them rip into each other -- starting Friday. That's when the state GOP gathers in Macon for its two-day annual convention. Since November, Republicans have...
