    The Legislative District 26 Republican Party in Arizona has spoken, and they’re not happy with Sen. John McCain. The group issued a sharp and formal written rebuke of their senator, calling his work across party lines — particularly with Democratic Sen. Majority Leader Harry Reid — destructive to GOP party principles. In a resolution, the group charges Mr. McCain with “unilaterally negotiate[ing] with … Reid to secure Republican votes necessary to pass a number of controversial presidential nominees,” reported. For instance: Mr. McCain helped secure the nominations of Gina McCarthy to head the Environmental Protection Agency; of Richard Cordray...

    The House yesterday passed a new "reform" measure aimed at curtailing the practice of trading on securities with inside information amongst members of Congress and their staff. Suprise! Some members of Congress were arriving in Congress and becoming rich on the experience. Ever wonder how people go to Congress and become millionaires? The publication last year of a new academic report cleared up for us at least one way the millionaires' club known as Congress benefits.A report from four scholars, Alan J Ziobrowski; James W Boyd, Ping Cheng; and Brigitte J. Ziobrowski, titled Abnormal Returns From the Common Stock Investments...

    White House Says It Wasn't Responsible for Picking Rowdy Basketball Arena for Arizona Memorial Service Thursday, January 13, 2011 By Fred Lucas Washington ( – White House Press Secretary Robert Gibbs said Thursday that the White Houes was not responsible for choosing a basketball arena, as opposed to a church or a smaller auditorium that might be more conducive to a solemn event, for Wednesday's night's memorial service in Tucson, Ariz. The McKale Memorial Center, an athletics facility at the University of Arizona, was packed with a reported 14,000 people, who repeatedly broke out in cheers and screams of a...

    Washington (AP) - President Barack Obama says his talks with Gulf fishermen and oil spill experts are not an academic exercise. They're "so I know whose ass to kick." One target for the presidential foot: Tony Hayward, the embattled chief executive of BP. Obama was asked by Matt Lauer of NBC's "Today" about Hayward's past comments that "I want my life back," that the Gulf was "a big ocean" and that "the environmental impact of this disaster is likely to be very, very modest." "He wouldn't be working for me after any of those statements," Obama said, according to excerpts...

    American Idol | April 21, 2009 | By Lazamataz
    My girlfriend, for some absolutely incomprehensible reason, likes American Idol. She flipped the channel over to that show. And who appears on my TV set? That blue-lipped fascist Kenyan Muslim usurper. Barak Obama. I thought, "How appropriate. Soma for the mind, American Idol, and here's Obama encouraging people to keep watching. It's as if American Idol is actually intended to lull us to sleep". And at the end of his little endorsement for the charity that AI is supporting, he actually said, "You're all my dawgs." And I thought, "Can I please have a President who does not refer to...

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The U.S. Air Force's former chief military lawyer has been formally reprimanded for conduct unbecoming an officer because of improper relationships with more than a dozen women, the Air Force said on Wednesday. Maj. Gen. Thomas Fiscus was given a formal reprimand and ordered to forfeit pay for conduct unbecoming an officer, fraternization, obstruction of justice and violating a lawful general regulation, the Air Force said. In violation of military rules, Fiscus had sexual affairs over the last decade with more than a dozen female officers, enlisted women and civilians, an investigation found. These affairs generally were...

    Others may have sympathized on learning that Hamid Dabashi, a professor of Middle East studies at Columbia University, felt threatened by a graduate student at his own university, but not me. The incident began late on Sept. 27, 2004, when Victor Luria, a Ph.D. candidate in genetics and a former soldier in the Israel Defense Forces, wrote Dabashi an e-mail taking strong exception to what Dabashi had written about the IDF in an article, "For a Fistful of Dust: A Passage to Palestine," he published in the Egyptian newspaper, Al-Ahram. In response, Luria wrote to Dabashi: I have rarely seen...

    RAPIST SHOWING LEG: An Extension of the clinton Complex-Question Fallacy Scheme by Mia T, 9-19-03 The missus clinton-Wesley Clark spectacle, in any permutation or combination, is as much about delusions of grandeur as about anything else. As Susan Estrich pointedly stated yet again last night: "hillary is unelectable." (requires Flash Player 6, available HERE) The clinton calculus, that the clintons' utter failure, which unleashed global terror, would be neutralized (or at least mitigated) by any general -- and no less a general who, himself, exudes critical elements of clinton dysfunction -- is ludicrous on its face and yet another...

    The unbecoming of O'Brien leaves many questions by Howie Carr Wednesday, November 6, 2002 Ding Dong, the witch is dead. Now that she's finished, maybe Shannon O'Brien can finally answer a few questions truthfully: Was it wise to endorse cutting the age of parental consent for abortions to 16? Would you crack wise again with Tim Russert about having a tattoo? Shannon, how many votes do you think you won by coming out for gay marriages? Is it safe to say that last week's Herald debate was as fatal to your chances as John Silber's interview with Natalie Jacobsen in...
