Too Funny

Someone finally clarified the relationship between Lindsey Graham and John McCain.

Dirty Harry Strikes Again

Sunday, January 28th, 2007

Once again, Sen. Harry Reid finds himself in the middle of an ethics scandal.  Apparently, he managed to get himself a discount of over 90% on land in northern Arizona from those with business pending before Congress.  The culture of corruption strikes again.  At the very least, this is a public relations disaster for the […]

Casey Comes Through

Wednesday, January 10th, 2007

Throughout the 2006 campaign, many argued that Bob Casey, Jr. would say one thing on the campaign trail and do another when he got to Washington.  On no issue was this point more emphasized, especially to me, than on embryonic stem-cell research.  Now with his reelection six years away, Casey, Jr. has the chance to […]

Bond Puts Rumors to Rest

Monday, January 8th, 2007

Sen. Kit Bond said last week that he will not leave his seat to take the now-vacant position of President of the University of Missouri.  The decision is perhaps most relevant on the issue of embryonic stem-cell research.  As it stands now with those who have cast votes on the issue and with the public statements […]

Bond and Hagel to Retire?

Saturday, December 30th, 2006

Rumor has it that Sen. Kit Bond will retire from the Senate to take a position at the University of Missouri.  According to the rumor, Gov. Blunt would then make a similar mistake to former Sen. Frank Murkowski, who appointed his daughter to fill his seat.  Blunt, however, would go one step further and appoint […]

Some Lefty`s Will Stop At Nothing

Wednesday, October 18th, 2006

Yesterday, another blogger, whom I will not dignify with a link from this site, made allegations about past sexual encounters of a United States Senator.  This goes far beyond any ethical limitations of this field or any other.  The blogger in question, while unethical, has also engaged in illegal activity, as he blackmailed this Senator […]

Culture of Hypocracy

Wednesday, October 11th, 2006

As Democrats accuse Sen.George Allenof not reporting stock options to the Senate, Senate MINORITY Leader Harry Reid has come into his own problems on his reports.  It must be rather enjoyable to take $1.1 million in a land deal for land that he did not actually own at the time. What might be considerably less […]

Sen. Tom Coburn, M.D., Needs Our Help

Tuesday, September 26th, 2006

When Dr. Coburn spoke with President Bush after his election in 2004, the President said, “Tom, I´d really appreciate your help,” Coburn responded, “Mr. President, I´ll be glad to help you cut spending.”  During his time in the House, Tom Coburn proved himself to be a dependable, ethical, and ardent conservative.  Since his election to […]

Bush Does the Right Thing

Wednesday, July 19th, 2006

Unlike nineteen Senate Republicans and all but one Democrat, President Bush today stood up to the political pressure of those seeking research funding that they could not obtain from prudent private investors and vetoed an expansion of the unethical practice of embryonic stem-cell research.  While this does not make up for his earlier position, allowing […]

Martinez: I Was Wrong on Schiavo

Monday, February 13th, 2006

Sen. Mel Martinez said in an interview that aired Sunday that he was wrong to sponsor legislation giving federal courts judirisdiction over the situation surrounding Terri Schiavo.  His comments were unnecessary and unwelcome, demonstrating yet again that Republicans fail to understand issues before they take positions on them.  He follows Bill Frist in his decision […]
