Is Gov. Steve Beshear (D, KY) extorting campaign contributions?
(Via Instapundit) That’s the rather bombshell allegation being made today; the gist is that Rodney Young (a retiring psychologist for the Department of Juvenile Justice has reported that his colleagues were the target of an attempt to extort $500 contributions to Steve Beshear’s re-election campaign, with the threat that they could lose their jobs if they did not so contribute. The major argument against this | Read More »

Chris Matthews brings DOOM unto Jack Conway.
Yes. That Chris Matthews. Matthews apparently did not personally approve of the way that Jack Conway smeared Rand Paul with a recent scurrilous ad, and so took the opportunity to smack Conway around for over seven minutes of pretty much relentless, aggressive interviewing. Yes, again: that Chris Matthews. As I remarked just now on Twitter, watching this was like watching Jack Conway get mauled by | Read More »

Ken Salazar: No OCS drilling, even when it’s $10/gallon for gas.
I give up. I figured that six bucks a gallon was a nice, round number with which to beat the Democrats with about the head and shoulders. Which it would be. For rational people. But freaking ten? (Via Hot Air) What are you willing to bet that Senator Salazar hasn’t paid for his own gas in years? – because he certainly seems perfectly happy to | Read More »
GOP Senate to DEM Senate: Drill, or go dry.
You know, I understand why some people find Senate quote-unquote “Minority” Leader Mitch McConnell a bit irksome when it comes to pork generally, but he really does have a feel on the primary aspect of his current job: that is to say, how to thoroughly muck up the titular majority’s day.
