    It's not every day that the Wall Street Journal's right-leaning opinion section swoons over a Democratic politician. Gina Raimondo's outspoken championing of tax and regulator reform have made her the rare exception. Gushing over the Rhode Island governor in a November article titled, "An Island of Rationality in Blue-State New England," opinion writer Allysia Finley praised Raimondo's focus on regulatory and tax reform, painting her as a wonky, business-friendly Democrat at odds with a left-wing base committed to fighting battles over social justice issues. "This yearís election has spurred soul-searching within the Democratic Party," she wrote. "A debate rages between...

NEWPORT, R.I. ó Prominent Rhode Island Republicans stood by GOP presidential nominee Donald Trump on Saturday even as they condemned denigrating comments Trump made about women that have alienated many members of the party nationally. "There is no way I can defend it," state Rep. Joseph Trillo, R-Warwick, the honorary chairman of the Trump campaign in Rhode Island, said of Trump's comments about women,...

    No, really. This is one of the best political commercials ever made. It wonít be on TV unless it gets recut, because itís two and a half minutes long, but to recut this would be a shame. It packs in many of the reasons why Cruz is a better nominee than Trump, gets across the key point that if Trump is the nominee the media which has been fawning over him will turn on him the same way they turned on John McCain and Hillaryís opposition research feeding into the media coverage will turn the entire general election race into...

    Less than ten days into the New Year, a senseless act of violence was perpetrated on our Republic by a violent and evil man. Our form of government is self-rule through elected representatives. When any representative is fulfilling their public duty, it is as if we are all there. The shooting in Tucson, Arizona was an attack on the government of this great Republic, and therefore was an attack on all of us. More troubling than the shooting is the aftermath of recriminations that has happened this past week by the Progressive Media and Progressive Democrat Politicians. Using this event...

The party organization is already running harsh TV spots in the state attacking investment banker and Cranston Mayor Steve Laffey, Chafee's conservative GOP primary opponent. The commercials try to tie Laffey to the unpopular oil industry and high gas prices, blasting Laffey for having previously run "a company selling oil industry stocks on Wall Street. Profiting from offshore oil drilling. The oil companies made a fortune. Steve Laffey made a fortune."

    PORTSMOUTH -- The congressman was at a graveyard in the woods with wet shoes and a glazed doughnut when the bees attacked. It had been U.S. Rep. Patrick J. Kennedy's idea to interrupt a newspaper interview last week to show off the 200-year-old historic cemetery next to his home in Portsmouth. Impulsively, he set out in business clothes across the sopping wet grass early in the morning, leading the way through bushes, under branches and over the scattered, jagged pieces of a fallen stone wall, carrying his breakfast doughnut on a napkin. The yellow jackets apparently went first for Kennedy's...

    Journalists, political pundits and other Hysteric Left activists are desperately trying to spin some cosmic significance out of Sunday's Spanish elections. The "conventional wisdom" is that the Spanish Election results are some sort of significant defeat for President Bush and the War on Terror. As usual the "News Media's" thinking is neither conventional nor wise. What all the various activists miss is the reality of American Exceptionalism. As much as the International Political Left hates, and try's to deny, the reality is the USA operates on a completely different political level then the rest of the world. On Sunday, the...

    The reason for my apology was that throughout this primary season we have been hearing about the record turnout of voters participating in Democrat caucuses and primaries. I bought the lie. The truth is that, except for Iowa and New Hampshire, there has not been any sort of record turnout for the Democrats. Even in New Hampshire the vote was far less than what the Republicans had when they last had a contested primary in 2000. The Democrats this year had 219,787 votes in their primary. The GOP in 2000 had 239,523 votes. That 20,000 difference is major in a...
