    Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kans.) is in the fight for his political life. Current polls show him barely trailing his opponent, which would make Kansas look like a golden pickup opportunity for Senate Democrats, right?Not so much. In early September, Democrat Chad Taylor suddenly dropped out of the crowded Kansas Senate, leaving a two-man race between Roberts and Greg Orman, who insists that he’s totally an independent and not a partisan Democrat. Orman even swears that he has no idea who he’ll support for Senate Majority Leader if he wins the election next Tuesday. That’s how independent he is.But if Orman...

    As soon as the country figures out that there are two sets of rules in the US (one for Democratic members of congress, one for the rest of us) we can save much time and aggravation. California Congress woman Laura Richardson is joining Democratic party colleagues, Chris Dodd, Charlie Rangel, John Murta, et al, who are have been, or will be under investigation.

    Way to go, Gov. Arnold! Declaring a "financial emergency," he has authorized the payment of state money owed to local government agencies, including the city of Bakersfield and Kern County. It's a gutsy, much-needed move. Democrat lawmakers would be well-advised to support it. Look for another bone to fight Republicans over. The money was caught in the sleight-of-hand that Sacramento politicians use to balance the state's budget and cover up their excessive spending. During more than a decade of Republican and Democratic governors leading California, sales tax, property tax and other fees, such as the vehicle license fee, have been...

The attack against this dictator should come as no surprise. The record clearly shows that he has harassed American and United Nations inspectors, ordered the destruction of important documents in anticipation of inspections and hampered the ability of inspectors to carry out their mission. His defiant...

    <p>CONSIDER a radical idea: Enable a mere majority, not two-thirds, of the California Legislature to pass a budget.</p> <p>Then consider how completely un-radical it is. Majority rule is good enough for Congress to approve the federal budget. Majority rule is good enough for all but two other states.</p>
