@SonnyBunch I am interested in your opinion on Buster Scruggs. I am a Coenophile but found it to be uneven. So hooking up my headphones....

Now fellow Nevadan @SenCortezMasto is first Dem to pay tribute to @SenDeanHeller. Focuses on Yucca Mountain and Vegas shooting. Nicely done.

Now have to listen to @JohnCornyn mangle pronunciation of "Nevada" as he pays tribute.

In one of the more remarkable television interviews with a politician I have ever seen, ex-Rep. Shelley Berkley eviscerated her U.S. Senate campaign staff for bottling her up, not having a strategy and being too paranoid. "If I had to do it over again, I wouldn't let these people run my bathwater," Berkley told Hugh Jackson and Elizabeth Crum on KSNV's "The Agenda" on Wednesday afternoon. Berkley, who has been saying privately since she lost to Sen. Dean Heller in November that her campaign...
This is not the last you wiil hear of this: Assembly Minority Leader Pat Hickey, sitting down with a friendly interviewer (Dan Mason) on conservative talk radio, got careless and talked about how great for the GOP that young people and minorities won't turn out in presidential year numbers in 2014. The Democrats had an energize-the-base missive out about it shortly after he said it, saying in part: "Yes, you heard that right -- the Republican Party is so out-of-touch with Nevada families they...
Leif Reid, whose father is the Senate majority leader, withdrew today as Las Vegas Sun Publisher/Editor Brian Greenspun's lawyer in his suit against the Review-Journal's parent company. Harry Reid's son also is asking the court to seal his reasons for withdrawing, saying the judge has "broad discretion" to seal documents. Brian Greenspun still retains the services of Joe Alioto, a San Francisco lawyer. "I can't give any detail because attorney client privilege is involved, but basically a...
Coming on the heels of that bizarre Vegas PBS outing, Sen. Dean Heller submitted to a withering interrogation in DC by Northern Nevada icon Sam Shad. Some of it is just amazing. ("Do you trust President Putin?" Spoiler alert: He doesn't.) More lowlights: Shad: “War on Republicans, the Libertarian side of the party versus the moderate side of the party. How is this going to affect future of the party and where do you stand?” Heller: “Well obviously it has had impact. We saw during the last...
Poor GOP Chairman Michael McDonald. Gov. Brian Sandoval and Sen. Dean Heller don't want him in the job, nor do the two Republican legislative leaders: Senate Minority Leader Michael Roberson and Assembly Minority Leader Pat Hickey. You would think that would be enough to get him to resign and let Las Vegas Sands lobbyist Robert Uithoven, endorsed by all four of those leaders, take the reins in advance of a very promising year for the GOP in Nevada. But, no. Instead, he is using party resources...
UPDATE: From Bilbray spox: First, a web vendor mistakenly posted draft issue language to the beta version of the website that was still waiting for additional input and approval from the candidate. Second, there is no wondering which way to go on assault weapons from the candidate. She is opposed to an assault weapons ban. ---- Erin Bilbray, running against Rep. Joe Heck in CD3, is not doing interviews and is simply sending missives via email to attack the incumbent or respond to...
As part of its ongoing campaign against Station Casinos & Friends, the Culinary union has opened a new front, with a letter saying it is "alarmed" that the local gay and lesbian center is honoring the Ultimate Fighting Championship. Invoking homophobic comments made by UFC fighters and boss Dana White, the Culinary, with progressive and labor co-signers, has asked the Gay and Lesbian Community Center of Nevada not to award the UFC its "Corporation of the Year" honor. The letter, which is...
UPDATE, 9/24: In a post today headlined, "Truth is not secondary," the disgraced "publisher" of the "newspaper" did not...tell the truth. This is my favorite part: "My Sunday column included a quote from an interview by Warren Buffett that was initially reported as being made last week. I used part of that quote in my column. After the column was written, it turns out that the interview was done in 2010 and not last week." Um, no. It did not "turn out" that after your column was written that...
The national Republicans, fresh off a dark week of Capitol Hill seppuku on Obamacare, couldn't have chosen a sunnier voice for the regular Saturday radio address. Gov. Brian Sandoval is presiding over a slowly recovering economy. He has stratospheric poll numbers considering how deep the fiscal hole was/is. And he projects a face -- literally -- many national Republicans see as the future. So Gov. Sunny took the opportunity to do what he does best: Accentuate the positive and massage the...
Two incipient constitutional officer contenders attended a kickoff Thursday evening for a new anti-union campaign designed to pummel the Culinary Union and extinguish the margin tax ballot question. Sue Lowden, poised to enter the lieutenant governor's race, and her good friend, state Sen. Barbara Cegavske, who is mulling a secretary of state bid, were at Bahama Breeze to help unveil the Alliance to Protect Nevada Jobs, sources tell me. That's the effort funded by conservative business types...
