Animal Husbandry

July 14, 2009

So much for whatever happens in Vegas staying in Vegas. The John Ensign affair is back in the news. And it looks like we’ve hit the jackpot. For repubs, it’s the sort of jackpot perps found themselves in on NYPD Blue. For libs, it’s more like the kind the Nevada Senator’s dad, a retired casino […]

Sanford needs a reality check

July 8, 2009

He is a man who is one minute mooning over the mistress in Argentina and calling her his “soulmate” and the next, going off on a holiday getaway to play kiss-and-makeup with his missus. Why can’t this fickle man makes up his mind? This is a so-called man who is a lawmaker and trusted to […]
