NRO’s Post
On a personal note, I remember Hyde speaking at the March for Life every time I went.  He was a fighter for the things in which he believed.  He was one of the good ones.

The Speaker Must Go

Wednesday, October 4th, 2006

Conesrvatives are currently divided on the issue of whether Speaker Hasters should resign over the current allegations.  Well meaning, well tested allies have strong opinions on either side, though RedState would have done well to avoid calling those who disagree with them fools and foes.  Even so, it is a difficult situation, and a site […]

Could´ve Been Worse

Friday, September 29th, 2006

For more than a year now, Republicans have mocked and undermined the campaign of Rep. Katherine Harris.  Many of them would have preferred having Rep.

For Majority Leader: Shadegg

Saturday, January 14th, 2006

Although this blog is dedicated primarily to the Senate, I cannot help but comment on the important race for House Majority Leader.  All three candidates have established themselves as conservatives through their voting record, but sadly, a conservative voting record does not make a member conservative.  I am taking this opportunity to endorse the candidacy of […]
