In the midst of a “government shutdown” diatribe and immigration reform fizzles,  a key bill quietly passed in the Senate by a huge margin that was actually quite important to many Americans:

First the Teamsters, UFCW, and UNITE-HERE expressed their belated disapproval of the ObamaCare Tax monstrosity, and now the IRS employee union wants to be exempted from Obamacare.  The Teamsters, et al., made points that we’ve been making since 2009, points they willfully ignored...

The reason this has become a “war” is that Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) has threatened to block future nominees under Republican presidents, as reported by...

I saw this coming.

A couple of weeks after her Nevada Senate primary victory, Sharron Angle appeared on journalist John Ralston’s television show.  Ralston apparently is one of the most prominent political reporters in Nevada.

At the time, this was my first introduction to Ralston.  Here was how I observed his style in the Angle interview:

Trust me, I’m not counting my chickens before they have come home to roost.  But it is enjoyable to read the distraught comments from those trying to run away from the wave.

The “wave” is the most recent Gallup poll showing a 10 point generic ballot lead in favor of Republicans, a...

Jon Ralston, a Nevada journalist, has announced the death of Sharron Angle’s campaign.

Do not believe it. Not for a second.

I don’t know Ralston, other than watching him interview Angle and Harry Reid. My impression is that he is very keyed into Nevada politics, but he also is enjoying his 15 minutes...

Media Matters is watching everything that FoxNews, and conservative commentators such as Rush Limbaugh, say or do waiting to pounce on any sentence, or clause in a sentence, or word in a clause, which can be twisted out of context and blown up into a faux scandal.

With each passing day, I am becoming more and more convinced that the Obama administration’s sustained and crude attacks on Fox News are a big diversion.
