Nice first post.

Just a few editorial suggestions:
I’d drop the ellipses and just use periods or commas as appropriate. If you have the link to Balloon Juice, I’d insert it as well.

As for your lede - “AZ Statehouse GOP imitates National GOP” misses one key thing that would give it more punch: AZ Statehouse GOP imitates National GOP - And Loses.

re: #1 lawhawk

TYVM,

Have taken your suggestions under advisement and made the tweaks

Our dear Governer also managed to hurt the fee-fees of some of her fellow Republicans by showing spine that Boehner wishes he had. She promised to veto every bill that reached her desk until the legislature sent her the Medicaid expansion, and actually made good on the threat. She vetoed bills she supported and lobbied for until the legislature got their act together and gave her the expansion. It’s the second time she showed serious political courage for an unpopoular but vital measure. Not that it balances out her cravenness on SB1070, but still, it’s a start.

re: #3 DesertDenizen

When a GOP politician acts like a human being, it is a rather newsworthy event these days.

Does everything a good page should do.

I used to work with someone who is at Goldwater Institute, nice kid, but so freaking deluded about the real world. Dad’s a millionaire, everything handed to her. Extremely smart, but kind of aspie, she got her law degree and works for the institute. She could not fathom that I, a moderate R would actually say that Obama was going to be re-elected. They have passion, but, I think that if Barry Goldwater were to come back from the dead, he’d maim about 3/4ths of the staff at Goldwater Institute.

re: #6 Egregious Philbin

Inherited wealth makes people stupid, and ugly-spirited, IMHO.

It should be abolished. Every kid starts with $20 in his/her pocket (which is what I had left over after my parents tossed me out at 18). Everybody earns their place, regardless of who Daddy is.

It would make things so much simpler and clearer.
