Maybe he should ask Raymond J. Donovan. Until then, all he has is publicity about the overturning of his politically-driven conviction, Tom DeLay money laundering verdict overturned: A Texas Court of Appeals in Austin has overturned the conviction of former U.S. House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, attorney Brian Wice told KVUE sister station…

Maureen Dowd has become disillusioned with President Obama in his second term. It’s probably correct to conclude that Dowd stands for millions of other liberals similarly let down.

I have warned repeatedly that the NSA disclosures by Edward Snowden via Glenn Greenwald and others serve a dual purpose. Part is to expose genuine breaches of privacy about which we should be concerned; part is to disrupt U.S. foreign intelligence activities and relations with other countries.  The former provides excellent cover…

David Brooks, columnist for The New York Times, was interviewed recently on PBS and  referred to Ted Cruz as “the Senator from Canada through  Texas.” (h/t Instapundit) I guess Brooks meant that as a shot, but it’s an odd shot for Brooks to make.
