I understand the concept: If Scott Bundgaard can get kicked out of office because of a history of domestic violence and really, really, REALLY stupid decisions, then it’s only logical that state Democrats should try to eat one of their own as well.  State Rep.

Taking my cue from what Doug wrote, I want to take this opportunity to make an important announcement that might drastically affect my political future.  I’m straight.

My reaction to the “shocking” allegations surrounding Sheriff Paul Babeau?  A whole lotta “meh”.  The outrage seems to center around the fact that Paul Babeu is gay and a hero to Arizona conservatives. What does Sheriff Babeau’s sexuality have to do with how he secures the border or fights for limited government? Nothing.  This is • Read More »

Arizona Democrats think their opposition to SB1070 will flip our state from the deep red to azul claró on the backs of Hispanic voters.  Too bad their President is doing his level best to stop such things.  President Barack Obama’s campaign to woo growing Hispanic communities in southern states being thwarted by his simultaneous campaign • Read More »
