Reading Time: 1 minutesLast week, I wrote about the Missouri Republican Establishment’s plan to win a windfall for lobbyist Kit Bond via Senate candidate Jay Ashcroft. Not that the Establishment cares about Bond, but they want Medicaid expansion passed before they beg for money for 2016 from the Missouri Hospital Association and Chamber of Commerce.

I was talking about defunding Obamacare before it was cool

Reading Time: 2 minutesOkay, I’m fired up. I’m fired up about Obamacare. I don’t know what got me onto this, exactly. I talked to Jim Durbin tonight, so maybe that was it.

Reading Time: 5 minutesI wanted to be William F. Buckley Jr. All I lacked was his intellect, education, and unique experiences. Well, I didn’t want to be him. I wanted to be the next one.
