To the Voting Booth!

Posted by  ▪  June 28, 2012

Consider this Pep Talk IV. Was it over when Harry Reid pushed Obamacare through at Christmas time in December 2009? Not when voters took to the voting booth and elected Scott Brown. Was it over when Nancy Pelosi and House

Was Scalia’s Dissent Originally a Majority Opinion?

So why not Bobby Jindal for V.P.?

Posted by  ▪  June 26, 2012

Other than the fact that George Will thinks he’s a good default pick? I’ve always liked Jindal, but admittedly I don’t follow his day-to-day actions in Louisiana that carefully. He did a good job on the BP spill, doesn’t have
