Good morning, everyone. For a newspaper trying to justify its enduring existence, the Las Vegas Sun seems to have an odd way of going about it: The site was (is?) down for the second time in a couple of weeks. It is not just infuriating for newsletter publishers but probably for others, too. Maybe they need to bring back Rob “Internet Jesus” Curley? I went to the print edition of the Sun to look for a story I talk about below and I found a huge picture of a kid getting a balloon and some story...
I felt a little like Navin Johnson when the new phonebook arrived. My joy was irrational, unrestrained. The 2014 version of "The Almanac of American Politics," the closest thing to a holy book in the business, came in the mail recently. Overseen by the master, Michael Barone, and ably assisted by Chuck McCutcheon, Sean Trende and Josh Kraushaar, the tome is stuffed with information about every state's political environment and its top elected officials. It is the veritable treasure trove, with...
Robert Uithoven once had to be a spokesman for Jim Gibbons, so he must think there are no worse jobs. Why else, besides a desire by many in the GOP for the state party to be credible, would he be considering a bid to oust Republican Party Chairman Michael McDonald? Party chairman is as thankless a job as you can imagine, perhaps more so than being a campaign spokesman for a soon-to-be governor whose first name would become "scandal-plagued." But Uithoven, now a lobbyist for Sheldon Adelson's...
Good morning, everyone. Sometimes reaction to “Ralston Reports” is immediate and reminds me just how wonderfully diverse and downright sweet my viewers are. Consider how last night’s love email began, shortly after the program was over: “At first I thought Rush Limbaugh had been castrated, and starved into a 90 pound weakling.” I got a little lachrymose, I must say. The president of my fan club went on about my “ LEFT-WING, Commie agenda” and how I was ignoring the depredations of Benghazi,...
Former Senate candidate Sharron Angle has inserted herself into Alabama's special congressional election next week, endorsing a candidate who has said he is "against homosexuals pretending like they’re married." Angle's PAC, which solicited money for Dean Young in a missive I have pasted below, also set her disqualifiers for endorsements: Anyone who has voted for taxes, contributed to Democrats, has ties to the Establishment and does not display a serious campaign. (I wonder if incipient...
Tonight, we look at the new Nevada school rankings with Clark County Superintendent Pat Skorkowsy. Check out your kid's school, and tune in at 6:30.
The margins tax has been around for awhile. It was proposed by Democrats in 2011, and the teachers union qualified its proposal last year. If you are involved in Nevada politics, even tangentially, you know what it does. This is especially true for lawmakers, who cravenly ignored the ballot question this year. (To be fair, this was mostly the fault of Democrats, who didn't want to bring it to a vote and put their members on record or propose an alternative. Most Republicans would have been...
