What can we say about Sen. Jeanne Shaheen that has not already been said? Quite a bit. And we’ll have more opportunity to say it. The 72-year old two-term Democrat is so addicted to the money and power in Washington that she can’t find a way to retire. She is running for a third term in 2020.

I watch the Sunday shows (now that I have DVR capability back) so you don’t have to. I’ll tell you, Chris Christie (former NJ Governor and former Prez wannabe), was absolutely beside himself (no small order, that) and full of glee after the words of Politico’s Rachel Baid’s description of what would happen if the …

Even though Republican Sen Murkowski was going to vote “No”, she didn’t – but not for the reason you think

The old technique is called “Pairing”: Alaska Senator Lisa Murkowski announced that although she opposes Brett Kavanaugh’s confirmation, she will be listed as ‘present’ in the final vote tomorrow so that Montana Senator Steve Daines can stay at his daughter’s wedding.  The announcement comes hours after [Republican Senator] Daines revealed he was willing to jet to …
