Why can’t Congress meet via Skype?

OK, I don’t have much respect for Representative Tammy Duckworth (D-IL) for this action, but she did serve our country with the United States Army, in combat as a helicopter pilot, in Iraq, and I honor her for that.

Barack Obama not being exactly the most popular President in states like Arkansas and Louisiana and North Carolina and Alaska, the incumbent Democratic senators have been very busy telling their constituents how independent they are, how they aren’t just party drones but think for themselves.

Never let a crisis go to waste!

That was Rahm Emanuel’s advice, and, for the Obama Administration, it’s a well-learned lesson: Unreal — NIH Director: We’d Probably Have An Ebola Vaccine If It Wasn’t For GOP Budget Cuts… Remember these headlines from Obama’s NIH?

Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane: Blaming the rape victim

The First Street Journal has not always been particularly charitable in our assessment of Pennsylvania’s Attorney General, Kathleen Kane. Mrs Kane is, sort of amusingly, ineptly corrupt, squashing a sting and an investigation into bribery by some members of the Pennsylvania state legislature because, surprise! everyone caught has been a Democrat, an action so egregious that even the editors of The Philadelphia Inquirer complained. And, to no …

Wisconsin Democrat Prosecutors Not Having Fun

HT Hogewash Wisconsin, known as “The birthplace of Progressivism” (view with a grain of salt), had recall elections that didn’t work out so well for Democrats after Governor Walker and the Republicans passed sweeping reforms that severely cut into the slush money Public Employee Unions (and their off-shoots) got out of their subjects — reforms …
