Energy Independence? Bull*lone*y!

One of my post election predictions is that President Obama will approve the Keystone XL pipeline on or after November 5, 2104.

Irony alert: Ron Johnson slams Tea Party groups

This is the height of irony, considering Ron Johnson was elected to the United States Senate in 2010 thanks in large part to the effort, enthusiasm, and money of Tea Party types.

Where Are the Birthers When You Need Them!

Interestingly enough we find junior Texas Senator Ted Cruz in exactly the predicament that the birthers tried to place President Barack Obama. Senator Cruz was born in Canada to a Cuban father and an American mother. He even has shown the birth certificate to prove it.

Even ignoring his current dual Canadian and American [...]

ObamaCare opponent Rick Perry seeks $100 million in ObamaCare funds

Local Control and the Republican Wisconsin Legislature
