Good morning, everyone. Mondays are the days I usually tell you, dear Flashees, how awful “The Newsroom” is after an evening hate-watching the program. I will bore you no more. Suffice it to say, the obnoxious Sorkinese, the terrible female characters, the heavy-handed plot points (Team Romney was mean to the media, and the media didn’t do its job!) and the great Jeff Daniels suffocated by the dialogue. Ah, what might have been. It’s euthanasia time, HBO. If you missed premium content Sunday,...
Good morning, everyone. The Rawson-Neal controversy continues with what has become a predictable trajectory. Government downplays latest development, Democrats attack, administration reacts with sunny statement. The latest is really something after the disclosure that the troubled hospital was denied accreditation and the day ending with the state announcing it wouldn’t appeal but that everything would be fine. If this were an issue people cared about---- What’s interesting here is that...
Good morning, everyone. I should write a book someday (or at least a long piece) about some of the stuff that’s been said over the last 12-plus years during breaks in my program. Lots of great stuff, but none better than Wednesday night when I turned to William Horne’s two beautiful children and asked about how fired up their Dad was on Stand Your Ground laws. “That’s why he should run for the Senate,” his son, Henry, responded, without missing a beat. You should have seen his father’s face. (...
Good morning, everyone. The riveting and revolting spectacleTuesday of Anthony Weiner and his wife (!) was something to behold. What is wrong with these politicians who can’t simply slink into the shadows once they have shown their true character? Remember how long John Ensign clutched onto power? And Jim Gibbons ran for re-election? As I both felt sorry for and was disgusted by Huma Abedin’s performance, I recalled how Darlene Ensign and Dawn Gibbons stood at news conferences by their men,...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see. DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 322 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 469 Good morning, everyone. I’m not exactly sure why legislative Democrats continue to be defensive about the 2011 Stand Your Ground law overwhelmingly passed in Nevada – Majority Leader William Horne is slated to come on “Ralston Reports” to talk about it on Wednesday. They seem to want to separate what they did...
Good morning, everyone. The great Pinky boxing mystery goes on, with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid still not acknowledging that, even if he won the fight by a KO, that’s him on the ropes. Look at the comments, too, with almost all agreeing with the obvious, including Harriet Trudell and Naomi Millisor, the veteran Democratic activists who have known Reid for many decades. I further explored the burgeoning scandal here. Speaking of mysteries, I am still waiting for my first response to a...
Good morning, everyone. I’ve finally posted my review of “This Town,” Mark Leibovich’s searing catalogue of DC people and parties. If you are interested in national politics, I highly recommend it. And it could have been written about any state capital, too – which reminds me to get back to my book outline---- I’ve also assembled some of what Leibovich had to say about Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid. In relatively few words, he captures the many sides of the complex anti-pol who is really...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see. DAYS UNTIL PRIMARY ELECTION DAY 2014: 329 DAYS UNTIL GENERAL ELECTION DAY 2014: 476 Good morning, everyone. Remember when Dr. No, a k a Oklahoma Sen. Tom Coburn, was John Ensign’s gynecologist? He protected Ensign for some time before clamming up. Well, Coburn is featured in “This Town” and had a love note for Las Vegas. Coburn, who is often at odds with Senate Majority Leader Harry...
Good morning, everyone. I received my copy of “The Town” over the weekend and it veritably teems with delightful nuggets about Washington insiders and the DC culture. I hope to have it finished as quickly as I can – I do have other duties, alas – and I will bring you a review as soon as I can as well as a sidebar on all the harry Reid stuff. (Author Mark Leibovich was kind enough to quote your favorite Reidologist on a couple of things.) Not sure how many of you saw “The Newsroom,” Aaron...
Good morning, everyone. Point of personal privilege: The Teen is 18 today. Does this mean she won’t clean up her room anymore? (Oh, wait----) Does this mean she is not my little girl anymore? Does this mean I’m old? Oh, nevermind. By now you may have heard that Sen. Rand Paul, in town this weekend to rev up the Nevada GOP and gain a foothold here as his father already has, canceled a “Ralston Reports” appearance less than 24 hours before it was scheduled. He has done this kind of dodge before,...
