OK, Mike, What’s with the Gnomes and lawnmowers?

by Skip August 8, 2014

Watching FoxNews “Special Report” is a staple for me – while it seems that they do try to report the news fairly straight up (yes, sometimes shaded a bit or bit more to the Right – let’s be honest here, as do the others shade (or in the case of MSNBC, leap) to the Left), it […]

Thumbnail image for Blogline of the Day – Sending a Clear Message to Democrats…

With regard to the demand by party leadership for GOP unity regardless of principle…. It…sends a clear message to the Democrats.  If you have a candidate with money, and you can run them as a Republican, regardless of parity to party principles, the NHGOP leadership will take the money, support the candidate, and demand that […]
