Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

Nice endorsement, despite the troubling use of the word “Democrat” as an adjective instead of a noun. Someone from the local Democratic Party should write them a letter (more here). “Warner is best Democrat choice in 26th District”: A Rancho Cucamonga business owner is the best choice for Democrats in the June 6 primary election […]

Tuesday, May 30th, 2006

Politics sure is complicated: But some worried that the constitutional victory for Hastert would be a public-relations problem for the rest of them. They fear that the nuances of constitutional principle will mean little to voters who conclude that the GOP, which aims to be the “law-and-order” party, is now on the wrong side of […]

More on the anti-immigrant backlash against Dreier

Monday, May 29th, 2006

With headlines like “Dreier slams immigration compromise” and “Dreier rejects Senate version of immigration bill” you’d think Dreier might have learned a lesson from 2004, when talk radio decided to eat its own.

Dreier rejects Senate version of immigration bill: Rep.
