I'm humbled and, to tell the truth, a bit surprised when I got the message that some of my favorite critics, philosophers and political know-it-alls thought I could swing it as a GMD Front Pager. Well Front Page, here I am.
Yesterday, news leaked out about the Legislative Bridgegate panel's interim report. A few hours later, the other shoe falls heavily:
Multiple sources familiar with the investigation into last year's traffic jams near the George Washington Bridge tell NBC 4 New York at least half a dozen potential federal indictments in connection with the scandal may be handed down as early as January.
Former Missouri congressman Todd Akin, who lost his bid for U.S. Senate following his notorious comments about “legitimate rape,” is out with a new book saying that his infamous remarks weren’t the real reason why he lost.
Ralph Reed’s Faith and Freedom Coalition announced that Gov. Chris Christie will speak at its “Road to Majority” conference this month, where perhaps Reed can offer the embattled governor advice on how to downplay scandals.
In a moment to make his district proud, Congressman Blake Farenthold went on Hardball this past Friday and refused to admit that President Obama was legitimately elected President. The congressman originally went on the program to discuss Senator Ted Cruz and the backlash the Senator has received within his own party on his methods to attempt to defund Obamacare (the Senate has a rule book, somewhere).
Ladies from all over Texas can dance around in their pink sneakers, as they no longer have to fight messy and contentious custody battles over their uterus now that Perry won’t be seeking another term. The world of comedy, still in intensive rehab over the loss of Michele Bachmann, will definitely have to extend its rehab a bit longer.
An absurd loophole that gained national attention when Rick Perry invoked the provision to collect his pension AND salary without retiring — increasing his take-home pay by more than $90,000 per year — will continue, as the Texas House of Representatives refused a hearing on "double-dipping."
Rep. Michele Bachmann's retirement is a blow to the late-night comedians who laughed at her confusing actor John Wayne with serial killer John Wayne Gacy or her insisting that HPV vaccine caused mental retardation.
