The emails revealed in the government's affidavit appear to show, however, that James Rosen's solicitation of government secrets wasn't nearly so narrow.

YouTube Virginia's Republican nominee for Lieutenant Governor E. W. Jackson says his ugly hate speech is just fine because he's a Christian, and he's not sorry at all. And what's more, if you object to the disgusting things he says, you're persecuting him and all Christians. A picture of the right wing in ...

Well, at least Oklahoma Republican Tom Coburn is consistent -- consistently heartless, even when it comes to his own constituents.
