  • Sen. Hagan backs befuddled, uninformed, anti-Israel Hagel

    By almost any measure, former Nebraska senator Chuck Hagel’s testimony on Jan. 31 before the Senate Armed Services Committee was a disaster. The man didn’t know anything, said he didn’t know anything, and was roundly criticized by both Republicans and Democrats for not knowing anything. But N.C.

  • Durham’s incompetent commissioners

    This story in The Herald-Sun is an admission that our current Durham County Board of Commissioners is a collection of incompetent dolts. With bills coming due for its new courthouse and human-services building, the county is opening its fiscal 2013-14 budget process with roughly a…

  • Kay Hagan’s weasel words on gun control

    Here is the response Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan sent to a constituent urging her not to support gun-control measures in the wake of Sandy Hook. It balances on a thin political line better than Karl Wallenda, with all the appropriate concern for the kids of Newtown…
