A Paler Shade of Blue

For the second election in a row, the New Hampshire Republican Party failed to mount a serious challenge for the office of Governor.  Joe Kenney did not even get a third of the votes.  And for the second election in a row, the voters put the Democrats in charge of both houses of the State …

More Educational Follies in NH

REVENGE OF THE RINOS This coming week, the House is set to take up a so-called bipartisan constitutional amendment on education funding.  But the amendment is bipartisan only in the sense that it is supported by both Democrat and Republican House members.  As far as the substance is concerned, the amendment is totally one-sided in …

HOW LOW CAN THE UNION LEADER GO?

Just how low is the Manchester Union Leader willing to go in its monomaniacal quest to browbeat Senate Republicans into supporting that putrid excuse for a constitutional amendment known as CACR 19?  As low as you can go, judging by the Union Leader’s June 19th editorial page, which features an op-ed by none other than …

THE UNION LEADER TAX HIKE

THE UNION LEADER TAX HIKE In its lead editorial in the Sunday News of June 17, 2007, the Manchester Union Leader continued to pillory certain Republicans for acting like, well, Republicans by opposing the misbegotten constitutional amendment crafted by ersatz Republican Mike Whalley’s crack team of legal experts.  They say that politics makes strange bedfellows.  …
