I must admit, I was nervous about the Palin email release last Friday (brilliant move by Parnell to release them on a Friday, BTW!). Not that I thought she had done anything wrong or that there would be anything really bad in them. But as mbecker had predicted, I expected a slow drip, drip, drip of moderately negative releases that would chisel away at what is left of her favorable ratings. I mean, seriously, who among us could survive without embarrassment the release of 24,000 of our emails? Well, apparently Sarah Palin can. Not only did the media not find anything truly shocking, but they actually were forced to admit that many of the emails made Sarah look quite good.

Currently, 1 in 4 Coloradans are on Medicaid, when just six years ago it was 1 in 10. This move has aided in pushing our state budget spending on healthcare to well over 30%.

I have changed the wording of the article accordingly to reflect it was her supporters who did this and not her campaign. It’s like a real life episode of ‘Friends’ except this time it’s Grandma Moses with the problem. Hillary Clinton’s supporters launched a social | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES I guess the general assumption out there is that everyone on the Republican side is falling in line behind Donald Trump. The reality, however, is a little more complicated. Today, Rep. Ryan Zinke of Montana endorsed Trump – which shockingly made him only the 12th sitting member of Congress to formally endorse Trump. How anemic is Trump’s support among | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Via Realtimepolitics, President Obama gave a press conference during his Asia trip this morning, and he was asked for his opinion on the increasingly contentious Democratic primary. Obama has been about as neutral as one can possibly be throughout this process even though Clinton is his former Secretary of State, and for good reason: he doesn’t need to give | Read More »
