    Bachmann’s newly installed political team has had its own battles with message discipline — typified by campaign manager Ed Rollins’ recent comments alleging that former Alaska governor Sarah Palin hasn’t been “serious” over the last few years. After the incident, Bachmann was “very firm” with Rollins, according to an adviser to the congresswoman, telling him this should not happen again and that there should be “no more press”. Bachmann also demanded that Rollins call the Palin people and apologize. “She is definitely not tone deaf,” the source added. Bachmann’s move to limit her exposure in the wake of her debate...

    They put a gun to our heads. They ate Crap Sandwich 2.0. Washington’s pork-stuffed panic mob forked over $700billion/$850billion/$1 trillion-plus of our money over to the Chicken Littles, who handed it over to Foxy Loxy at the Treasury Department. And now? And now, they tell us it’s not enough. It’s never enough.

    Crusaders 'left genetic legacy' The genetic signature can be traced to Europe Scientists have detected the faint genetic traces left by medieval crusaders in the Middle East. The team says it found a particular DNA signature which recently appeared in Lebanon and is probably linked to the crusades. The finding comes from the Genographic Project, a major effort to track human migrations through DNA. Details of the research have been published in the American Journal of Human Genetics. The researchers found that some Christian men in Lebanon carry a DNA signature hailing from Western Europe. The scientists also found that...

    Congress's Paperwork HumveesFirst, fix the military's failed acquisition system.When an Army reservist in Kuwait gave Donald Rumsfeld an earful Wednesday about inadequate armor for Iraq-bound Humvees, the Defense Secretary responded by paying the soldier the compliment of candor. "You go to war with the army you have. They're not the army you might want or wish to have," he said.That's at least an honest answer, and the Secretary's forthrightness seems to have been appreciated by the troops at the town hall meeting, who gave him a standing ovation. But back in Washington, candor has gotten more than one official...

    In Jamestown, police say one resident had enough firepower in his house, to equip a small army. Officers confiscated somewhere between five hundred and a thousand guns from the home of 63-year-old Thad Schank. He faces a weapons possession charge. Police also say one of Schank's weapons was stolen a couple months ago, which means it's somewhere out on the streets. When police realized just how many guns Schank had, they decided to get them out of his home, so that no more guns would end up in the hands of criminals.

    SACRAMENTO (AP) - California's workers' compensation insurance rates have dropped an average 10.38 percent since lawmakers adopted a series of cost-cutting measures, but greater decreases are possible, Insurance Commissioner John Garamendi said Tuesday. "Workers' compensation rates are definitely on the down escalator, but the escalator needs to speed up," Garamendi said. "Greater savings are possible." The workers' comp insurance rates paid by California employers shot up dramatically in recent years, increasing 200 percent to 300 percent for some businesses. Lawmakers responded last fall and this spring with legislation that, among other things, imposed new limits on benefits for injured workers...
