There may be more embarrassing or childish moments in political history than what we witnessed at today’s Clark County Commission meeting. But not many. Commissioners voting against a new chairman even thought they knew he would win? Yes. That happened. And for no good reason. And commissioners, like three-year-olds, squabbling about where they should sit up on the dais? Yes. That happened. And for no good reason. What a pathetic spectacle. And these folks are on the most powerful local...
The "winners" are: John Boehner, Barbara Cegavske's friends and Congress (fish in a barrel edition):
Frank Fahrenkopf, the only head of the American Gaming Association since its 1995 inception, is stepping down at the end of June. Like a great athlete getting out on top, Fahrenkopf leaves to plenty of encomia, as you will see below. He is a Reno guy, former RNC National Chairman and attorney who managed to keep the disparate gaming companies together (most of the time) and stay in a job that is the equivalent of having a board made up of Steve Wynn, Sheldon Adelson and Donald Trump. But no one...
The National Rifle Association is hosting an "elected officials-only classroom and range tutorial" this month to educate lawmakers on the "purpose and practical use of semi-automatic firearms and the differences between semi-automatic and automatic function." Although an email from the NRA to state lawmakers asserts the session was planned before the Newton tragedy, it also says "with the upcoming session looming...this is an extremely important debate and one in which accurate information is...
Welcome to The Weekly Report, where you find exclusive commentary and analysis. As always, I welcome feedback. Please tell me what you want and don’t want. This week: 1. Predictions for 2013 for many folks, from Carson City to Southern Nevada to DC. Which are real, and which are not? Sometimes, it’s hard to tell. I didn’t include every legislator or local government type from urban Nevada, dear Flashees, because, frankly, not all of them are that interesting – at least not yet. (ICYMI, I...
UPDATE: Reid just put out this statement on Monday at noon PT: "In my recent comments criticizing House Republicans for threatening to betray Congress' tradition of providing aid to disaster victims in a timely fashion regardless of region, I simply misspoke. I am proud to have been an advocate for disaster victims in the face of Republican foot-dragging, from Hurricane Katrina to Hurricane Sandy, from fires in the west to tornadoes in the Midwest. I have worked hard with Senator Landrieu to...
Making predictions shortly before an election is both arrogant and brave – I am sure the proverbial “others” would deploy other adjectives. But daring to unveil one’s Delphic powers a year in advance: That is hubris of a different order. Or, perhaps, sheer lunacy. But why come down from my lofty Pundit’s Perch, where you underlings peep about to find yourself honored by my predictions, so late in the game? It’s that time again to bravely go where I have gone so many times before. But before I...
"Ralston Retorts" commentary: GOP women trivialize gender bias with outrageous attacks on state Senate caucus
In case you missed it, here's my commentary from Thursday's "Ralston Reports" about that letter written by a group of GOP women attacking state Semate Minority Leader Michael Roberson for his supposed gender bias in snubbing colleague Barbara Cegavske:
