The Song Remains The Same

Having looked at the recent Republican primary elections, we turn our attention to the party of which I am not a member. I do so with great trepidation as I am constantly educated on its inner workings. My education includes a very interesting conversation with Delegate Mark Sickles over beers and dinner several years ago […]

It’s Always More Than Just One Thing

A brief follow up to yesterday’s post. Several Berg and LaRock supporters, even LaRock himself, have written to me making the case that HB2313 was, in fact, far more important to their victories than I discussed.

Want More Votes? Just Listen…

Following the Faith and Freedom Coalition’s Prayer Breakfast, I stayed for their private briefing with pollster Glen Bolger whose firm, Public Opinion Strategies, continues to be one of the best in the business.

Talladega Nights

There is a race on in the District of Columbia quasi-intelligentsia to win the “It’s Not My Fault Award.” Leading the pack is, obviously, the President of These Here States United followed closely by Thomas Mann and Norman Ornstein.

The Hills Are Alive

America is poised to enter a very new stage of her history – she is about to choose, for the first time, between candidates for president from both major political parties who call the suburbs their home.
