The Republican Party of Bush I and II, of Bob Dole and John McCain, is history. It’s not coming back. Unlike the Bourbons after the Revolution and the Terror, after Napoleon and the Empire, no […]

A Conservative Republican Case for Repealing and Replacing Dean Heller

on July 6, 2018, 7:07 AM / in Opinion

As a conservative Republican, if the election were held today I’d “pull a Heller” and not vote for Dean Heller for U.S. Senate.  I’d vote for the IAP’s Kamau Bakari. Lucky for Heller, he’s still got four months to change my mind.  Not likely though.  The only arguments for voting for “DC Dean” are that (a) “Wacky Jacky” Rosen would […]
