@IsicaLynn I am telling a story, a story you don't like. I'm sorry for that.

I am in a highly amused state today. Please forgive me.

@IsicaLynn A. I am not a Democrat. Why would I provide guidance?
B. I insulted them? I'm poisoning the discourse? You are a comedian.

@RJLvegas I'm not on a side! I don't want to be part of anything. I am amused by Berniebots and their unproductive zealotry and nastiness.

Berniebots are taking the column well, as I thought they might. It's updated now with that amazing missive from the… t.co/qFW6Zh2cBK

UPDATED, NOON, 11/8: I got some intel from some GOP insiders, who filled me in on exactly what happened during Friday's marathon session: It appears that Pat Hickey never had much of a chance to be elected as speaker after serving as minority leader. "It went downhill quick," one source told me. Most of the night was a negotiation, with Ira Hansen eventually agreeing to give the majority leader slot to southerner Paul Anderson. Fact was Hansen started with, as one put it, "all the new members...
This will be a running blog on what kind of strange stuff could happen in the brave, new and red world of Carson City, where the 22-11-1 math means the Republicans can pretty much do what they want. First speculation: Redistricting. In 1985, the GOP had 25 seats in the Assembly. They proceeded to lose control the next election. And how: It became 29-13, Democrats. Many of the current crop of 25 assemblymen are sitting in Democratic seats and a handful of the 11 GOP senators could be at risk. So...
UNLV is runnin’ from its credibility even faster after the margin tax failed by canceling a request for the Brookings Institution to review a university study on the initiative that the institution’s major gaming patrons did not like. That aborted Brookings review has now been exposed for the ruse that it is and confirmed UNLV’s status as a second-tier (generous) center of academic thought. This also may/should have an impact on Provost John White’s presidential aspirations. White, one of three...
Don't you hate pundits who make predictions and then never acknowledge where they were right and, even better for second-guessers, where they were wrong? Not this pundit. Here's the bottom line: I saw the wave coming long before anyone else. I had all the data. I could have justified a statewide sweep with that data. I almost did. But I couldn't believe it would go that wide and deep, so I predicted a big wave, not a massive one. So: ►I foretold that the GOP would pick up two-thirds of the...
State Senate Democrats, relegated to the minority in 2015, met Wednesday but could not find consensus on a new leader, sources say. The outgoing majority leader, Mo Denis, still wants the job. But so do Aaron Ford and Kelvin Atkinson. And none have a majority. At least not yet, so they postponed the vote. "There's no rush," Tick Segerblom told me. Ford is seen as the most moderate, but apparently has the backing of progressive Pat Spearman. Denis is obviously the nice-guy candidate (again), but...
When was the last time the Republicans held all constitutional offices and both houses of the Legislature? Never, say the great folks at the Legislative Counsel Bureau. Take a look, thanks to what the LCB's research library culled from the Political History of Nevada 2006: Elections After Which All Nevada Constitutional Offices and Both Houses of the Nevada Legislature Were Held by the Same Party General Election Year Constitutional Officers Session No. Session...
