I think I've figured it out. Republicans must be staging some kind of fiendishly clever plot to lure Democrats into a false sense of security.
Maybe the party is finally over. Meaning not simply the Grand Old Party, but more specifically the bacchanal of the bizarre and carnival of crazy to which it has lately devolved. So obvious has this devolution become that even Republican stalwarts have been heard to decry the parody of a par…

WASHINGTON — Republicans controlling the House are targeting food stamps, federal employee pensions, tax breaks for illegal immigrants and subsidies under President Barack Obama’s health care law in a multifaceted drive to swap cuts to domestic programs for big Pentagon cuts scheduled next year.
You figure the White House is probably feeling pretty good about

PHOENIX — A judge has voided a new state law that its sponsor
admits was designed to shift control of the Pinal County Board of

Given the Democratic voter edge in the city of Tucson, there are
generally two ways that Republicans can win a seat on the City
Council on Nov. 3.
Proposition 200, the Public Safety First initiative, changes the
city Charter to require increased police and fire personnel. The

Republicans at the state level so exercised.
The campaign to require the city to put more police officers and
firefighters on the payroll has bankrolled more than $360,000.
