      "Tarrant is a Republican. He's also a candidate for Vermont's open U.S. Senate seat and among a group of party insurgents who want Republicans to reconcile their stated philosophy of fiscal restraint with the spending binge they've led over the past five years. The debt ticker is at $8.199 trillion and counting." 02-06

  4. -09-04-08 Editorial: Palin Becomes the New Star of the Republican Party (U.S. News)

  5. -09-04-08 Editorial: Palin's Breakout Night (
      "You practically expected Sarah Palin to wear a cape when she landed center stage Wednesday night. She was like a one woman Fantastic Four, her faults invisible to the faithful, her strength deployed to close a 20 point white voter gender gap in key swing states, her blazing novelty enough to ignite the hall, and her biography so elastic that everyone from the gun owners to the PTA moms to the Pentecostals to the first timers felt warm in the embrace."

      "A campaign is partly a battle over images, and all candidates are greedy — they want to define not only their own image but also their opponents'. The acceptance speech is the only time anyone gets a clear shot at both. Palin hit her targets like a sharpshooter." 09-08

  2. -Editorial: Death of Habeas Corpus (MSNBC News - Keith Olbermann)
      Congress passed a law that now allows the President, on his own, to decide who is an enemy. This law is a clear violation of basic rights according to legal scholars, such as Senator Arlen Specter, Chairman of the Judicial Committee of Congress.

      Keith Olbermann notes, "The reality is without habeas corpus, a lot of other rights lose their meaning. But if you look at the actual Bill of Rights, the first 10 amendments of that pesky Constitution, you’ll see just how many remain for your protection."

      "So as you can see, even without habeas corpus, at least one tenth of the Bill of Rights, I guess that’s the Bill of Right, now—remains virtually intact. No. 3 is still safe."

  3. -Editorial: Lou Dobbs: Our "Leaders" Are "Out of Touch" (CNN News)

  5. -Editorial: Why the Democrats Can't Govern (The New Republic)
      "The last Democrat who held the White House, Bill Clinton, saw the core of his domestic agenda come to ruin, his political support collapse, and his failure spawn a massive Republican resurgence that made progressive reform impossible for a decade to come. The Democrat who last held the White House before that, Jimmy Carter, saw the exact same thing happen to him." 04-09

      "Officially, Grover Norquist heads an organization called Americans for Tax Reform where for almost 20 years now he has crusaded for lower taxes and less government. Unofficially, he's been the linchpin in Washington for the conservative revolution that now controls the government. His weekly meetings of activists became the politburo of strategy where all stripes of conservatives bear their differences in order to join forces against in Democrats. From the Christian coalition to log cabin Republicans to the National Rifle Association on whose board he sits, this Harvard graduate keeps the troops on mission. His success prompted Senator Hillary Clinton to muse aloud, if only Democrats had a Grover Norquist." 11-04
