Minn. GOP Has Own Candidate Removed From State Fair Booth By Security

The Republican Party of Minnesota barred Supreme Court candidate Michelle MacDonald from the party’s State Fair booth on Thursday. MacDonald was ordered by security to leave. “We may as well look for justice on a stick because we can’t find it here!” MacDonald told supporters while leaving the booth following a 10-minute confrontation with a security [...]

When President Obama told The New York Times over the weekend that too many Republicans deny science, implying that they reject reason and fact-based policies, who knew he’d be vindicated so quickly? There are more than a few seemingly acceptable ways to defend fracking. Nearly all of these defenses are nearsighted, and some are wrong, [...]

A California man who campaigned for governor this year has been arrested in connection with the shooting of his neighbor and the shooting death of a horse Thursday afternoon, according to The Fresno Bee. 48-year-old Tye “Glenn” Champ was taken into custody around noon on Friday without incident, after a Tulare County sheriff’s deputy caught [...]

Kansas Governor Sam Brownback threw out some red meat to his Republican-base while blaming President Obama for voters backing his challenger, Jennifer Winn. “I think a big part of it is Barack Obama,” Brownback told KSHB. “That a lot of people are so irritated at what the president is doing, they just, they want somebody [...]

Governor Rick Perry of Texas announced today he will deploy 1,000 members of the Texas National Guard to the U.S.-Mexico border in “Operation Strong Safety,” as clearly yet another element in Perry’s carefully orchestrated build-up for the 2016 Republican Party primary season.  Perry’s notional excuse for this vainglorious grandstanding is the threat posed to the security [...]

Tea Partiers don’t like being called racists but they do love voting for the GOP.  A revelation by Erik Erikson at RedState.com that it was Senate Republicans who attacked Mississippi candidate Chris McDaniel by deeming him to be a racist last month could change all that. Will there be a split on the Right with the [...]

“You’ll find this surprising,” Arizona Senator John McCain told Jake Tapper and Ron Fournier at a CNN/National Journal event July 17, “but I think I would have been more reluctant to commit American troops” to Iraq, claiming he would have been much more circumspect about the presumptive intelligence supporting the invasion: “I would have challenged the [...]
