Gov. Jan Brewer defies W.H. on immigration — I'm pretty sure we had a firm national conversation on the topic of Federal supremacy, oh, about 150 years ago.

Conservative ‘Dark Money’ Outspending even Superpacs on Attack Ads (Barker) — Mmm, transparency. Poor ethics like this is why you can't trust liberals. No, wait...

Romney Sharpens Old Message: Obama Runs On ‘Hatred’ — This from the leader of the party that pioneered the politics of resentment and has staked its current electoral fortunes on xenophobia, homophobia and liberal-bashing? Irony is indeed dead.

Paul Ryan on soapbox at Iowa State Fair — Conservative policies are unpopular even with conservatives when applied to them personally. The GOP is all about punishing the Other.

Romney/Ryan: The Real TargetThis story requires that there be good, honest, technically savvy conservative politicians, so that you can point to these politicians and say how much you admire them, even if you disagree with some of their ideas; after all, unless you lavish praise on some conservatives, you don’t come across as nobly even-handed. The trouble, of course, is that it’s really really hard to find any actual conservative politicians who deserve that praise.
