  • Mitch McConnell sings 'Kumbaya'

    The triumphant Republican class of 2014 formally took control of both halves of Congress last week, and here's what it has changed so far: not much. The new GOP majority didn't vote to repeal President Obama's healthcare law. It didn't undo Obama's...
  • House Re-Elects Boehner As Speaker Over Tea Party Opposition

    WASHINGTON (AP) —The House has re-elected John Boehner to be speaker in the new Republican-led Congress, despite opposition by tea party lawmakers that underscored party divisions. The Ohio Republican garnered the votes of 216 GOP lawmakers as...

    Are you a “UVA truther”? In other words, are you an abhorrent, woman-hating, “pro-rape Republican”? Or are you a “feminazi” guided by “rape crisis fantasy” and driven by emotions over logic? Those are...

    Northampon County Republicans get to sit at the grownup table
    One of the things I like about local government is that political parties and ideology often are irrelevant. It's more often about personality, judgment and character. Party politics and ideology did see brief, startling breakouts at Thursday night's...
  • Boehner reelected as Speaker, but control over GOP majority precarious

    John A. Boehner secured a third term as House Speaker on Tuesday, overcoming a brazen revolt by GOP conservatives to oust him but renewing questions about his hold over the chamber’s often rambunctious majority. A total of 24 rank-and-file...

    Anti-illegal immigration activists look beyond California for action
