    Well, there goes Hillary’s chance at being President of the United States. If we returned to a 55 mph speed limit as she is advocating, I’d probably still be on my way back from my weekend trip to Indiana right | Read More »

  • Correction: Rep. Marshall’s Views on Iraq

    Yesterday’s Evans-Novak Political Report passed on a misleading characterization of a November column by Rep. Jim Marshall (D-Ga.) that is being circulated this week by his opponents. Marshall had written that even though in principle he supported congressional investigations into | Read More »

  • We Weren’t Surprised About Osborne

    I notice a few words here about yesterday’s primary elections. True, much of Capitol Hill was caught by surprise when Rep. Tom Osborne lost the GOP gubernatorial primary in Nebraska last night to popular, conservative incumbent Gov. Dave Heineman. But | Read More »

  • Democrats and Corruption

    So, kids, let’s see if we can read between the lines of this statement from alleged bribe-taker Rep. Wm. Jefferson (D-La.): "I have never over all the years of my public service accepted payment from anyone for the performance of | Read More »

  • Happy Cinco de Mayo: May Day Rallies in Review

  • Americorps: ‘Enron Gone Non-Profit’

    Sen. John Thune (R.-S.D.) is on the Senate floor proposing an amendment to cut $20 million from the wasteful and mismanaged Americorps program and put the money instead toward veterans’ health. His quote of the day: "Americorps is like Enron | Read More »

  • Businesses to Be Busted for Hiring Illegals?

    So what do we know from today’s closures/reductions in service by some businesses? It all strongly implies that they hire illegal aliens. The Daily Grill, for example, may be an exploiter of illegal alien labor, and likewise the McDonalds near | Read More »

  • Menendez’s Opening Salvo: Opposes Alito

    A few notes on newly-minted Sen. Robert Menendez’s (D-N.J.) maiden speech: 1) He never sounded that pretentious when he was in the House. I think he’s been taking lessons from Sen. Robert Byrd (D-W.Va.). 2) By announcing opposition to Alito, | Read More »

  • Kennedy: National Disgrace

    It’s been amusing to hear Senator Kennedy going on and on about Alito. "The American people deserve better," he just shouted. "This body (the Senate) deserves better." Indeed, he is correct. They deserve much better than Ted Kennedy. Perhaps the | Read More »

  • ‘Missing Linc’ Strikes Again

    The Providence Journal is reporting this morning that Sen. Lincoln Chafee (R-R.I.) will vote against Alito. It might sound bad, but this is actually the best of all worlds if you’re a conservative. 1) The Dems won’t be able to | Read More »

    I read the response from Kodak, and it’s basically irrelevant. What kind of organization puts its money and good name in the hands of People for the American Way? It is a controversial organization by any standard, and there are | Read More »
