Headout: Officil Romney Ballot

Clear eyes, full hearts, can’t lose!

My fellow Republicans, In recent days your normally truthworthy postman (I suppose the liberals would have us say postperson!) may have delivered a letter labeled “Official Election Ballot   More

Gary Johnson's Record Doesn't Quite Match His Rhetoric


For the last two weeks, we've been running clips from our interview with Libertarian Party presidential candidate Gary Johnson. He's spoken with eloquence about taxes, health care and drug laws. In this clip, we ask him about his record as Governor of New Mexico for eight years and the seeming inconsistency between what he says he will do as President, and what he actually did as Governor. (Fact Check: ...   More

On Taxes, Paul Ryan is No Gary Johnson


The weekend political chat has been all about Paul Ryan, the Wisconsin Congressman chosen by Mitt Romney as his running mate. The early punditry claims that the addition of the tea partyish Ryan to the GOP ticket will energize "the base," but also scare Democrats enough to activate them as well. Paul Ryan's specialty is taxes—he is the chair of the House Budget Committee. While he is to the right ...   More

Is “Mischief Voting” Illegal?

Dr. Know
Can I change my party preference to Republican just so I can vote in the primary, and change back before the general election? Is it legal? I can’t stand to see Republicans having all the fun.&n   More

President Palin? Commissioner Cogen flips the "experience" argument

Today John McCain is 72. And as a birthday present to himself, he chose Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, 44, as his VP. If McCain were to be elected in November, he'd surpass Ronald Reagan's 69 years and seize the cane of honor as the oldest U.S. president in history. There's an obvious hazard here: 2004 data from the Federal Centers for Disease Control and Prevention put the average lifespan for ...   More

DENVER NOTEBOOK Lessons: On God, Greens and Squeaky Wheels

As I left Invesco Field about 10:45 p.m. Mountain Time on Thursday night, I heard a familiar baritone voice from a level below. The voice -- Sen. Barack Obama's -- thanked a number of key supporters, including wife Michelle. “It's going to be harder now,” Obama said. “You've been hanging around with Democrats this week. Next week will be different.” A reporter from ...   More

Ron Paul's Revolution PLUS The BODY for President

I got the impression last night, at Ron Paul's “Rally for the Republic,” which drew a crowd of over 10,000 to Minneapolis' Target Center, that the failed Republican presidential candidate really believes he is leading a revolution. Really. At the rally planned at the same time as the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, he used “revolution” or its variants (i.e. ...   More

Forget Sarah Palin: Liz Lemon for VP

So the Republicans will nominate a woman, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, for vice-president. How progressive of them! Why haven't the Democrats ever done that? Oh. Right. Well, at least we've got someone with real executive experience one one of the tickets now. Going by population, though, McCain might as well have picked Diane Linn for the VP slot. After all, she ran Multnomah County (pop. 681,454) ...   More
