Missing in Action: Where is Rand Paul?

My single biggest surprise this election season is the failure of Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) 86% to do much of anything. He has loyal support, a unique ...

The F-35 May Need To Be Permanently Grounded

The DoD Acquisition Community has spoken on the F-35 Joint Strike Fighter. According to a recent NRO article they have concluded the following: “The F-35 program is a mess; it is unaffordable and will not be able to fulfill its mission.” I work in DoD acquisition and find that to be a heavily freighted commentary that oversimplifies the situation at hand.

Politifact vs. Facts (and Rick Perry)

Over the last few years, a number of (allegedly) non-partisan fact checking organizations have come out that purport to provide a neutral analysis of the claims of politicians. I’m at a loss as to what function these organizations are even supposed to provide – at least over and above what you could find for yourself through competent use of Google. In reality, of course, they | Read More »

Oh, BTW: the Democratic front-runner is quite cordially hated in swing states.

So, you think that we have problems?
