Gimarc: Flint Hills equivalent

By Alex Gimarc The latest series of pro-Begich ads, both paid for by his campaign and supportive PACs, are blasting away at the Koch brothers for closing the Flint Hills Refinery.  In the rough and tumble world of politics, I suppose this is reasonable, but you sure would think that Begich would hitch his wagon […]

Cannon: The shocking secret behind Obamacare enrollment numbers

By Michael F. Cannon Barack Obama wants you to know he enrolled 7.5 million Americans through Obamacare’s health insurance Exchanges. What he doesn’t want you to know is how.

Pruden: Loose-lipped pols pay a debt to plain language

By Wesley Pruden Sometimes the smartest among us should just shut up, and watch his language. Nobody gets the opportunity now, if he ever did, to take something back, to explain “context” or “clarify” what he was trying to say. It’s all on somebody’s tape.
