Who said it . . .

A blog reader last evening reported hearing someone connected to the state Republican Party describe McThuselah's running mate as a "man's woman."Actually, it was state GOP Chairman Dennis (What We Need Is Another 9/11) Milligan who let his testosterone write a check his ass can't cash with the "man's woman" slip.He probably speaks for 98% of the Cheney worshippers with that assessment of Palin's qualifications.

  • In the margins

    A rediscovered violin concerto brings an oft-forgotten composer into the limelight.
  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states.
