    Wombat, your girl Nancy is one serious piece of work. And by ‘serious’ I mean ‘insane’, and by ‘work’ I mean something else.

     If your skin were stretched that tight, it would affect your neurological functions, too.

     Cruz has a real chance in the Texas runoff, and should expect a flood of money from conservatives now that he’s forced it (and slightly over-performed the polls).

    Greece isn’t exposing the weakness of the EU deposit-guarantee system, it’s exposing the folly of the EU itself, in concept and execution.

    Aaron Walker’s loss in a Maryland court isn’t “muzzling the 1st Amendment” by any realistic view.  If you expect administrative court judges anywhere in this country to watch out for your constitutional rights without a specific motion on your part, you are going to be very sadly disappointed.  These guys are just lawyers who could make more on a state salary than they could earn in private practice.

    Got a Ted Cruz post later this morning, in fact, and a Greece post for later still.

     I’m pretty sure that on some of the botox shots, they stuck the needle in too far and hit the brain.
