So in Thursday's episode of "Parks and Recreation," the producers were looking for a City Hall to symbolize extravagance in a city that has nearly gone bankrupt. Don't tell The Family Goodman -- although the city must have given permission, right? -- but look what they used: I don't watch the program, but one of my Twitter followers, @vegaspixie, pointed me to it. Pretty funny, eh, City Council? In the same episode, by the way, a character who wants to go off the grid suggests to his wife: "I'...

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid spent 40 minutes on the phone Friday morning with Democratic elected officials, answering questions about the government shutdown and reminding them that those anarchists in the House are holding up everything. “I think he was trying to explain to people how we got where we are and where we are now,” said state Treasurer Kate Marshall, who was on the call along with every other Democratic constitutional officer, a few lawmakers and local government officials...
The estimable Jonathan Martin of the New York Times has penned a piece about GOP elders/governors distancing themselves from the DC wing of the party involved in the current stalemate/dysfunction. What is striking about the story is a highly unusual quote from Gov. Brian Sandoval. The relevant section: “The constant focus on Congressional and White House bickering especially annoys Republican governors who feel that the party can take back the White House in 2016 if they nominate one of their...
The Retailers Association of Nevada on Thursday released a survey that touched on a variety of issues, including taxes. The poll seems to show that voters are divided over the teachers union's margin tax, which RAN opposes. But that's really not what it illuminates, although it does bring other phenomena to light. It's worth noting that the poll, conducted by Moore Information of 500 Nevada voters in late September, was withdrawn by the Associated Press late Thursday because Moore is a GOP...
Once again in the eye of the storm, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is being profiled, lampooned and eviscerated in the national media. Just Thursday, two new sketches of Reid appeared in The New York Times and The Wall Street Journal as well as one on MSNBC.com. So in my neverending quest to be helpful to my DC friends, and as the state's (nay the world's!) foremost Reidologist, I have prepared a handy guide of essential elements for a Prince Harry profile: 1. He was a boxer! This lends...
The Nevada electorate is split on The Education Initiative, the margin tax proposed by the state teachers union, according to a new poll paid for by the Retailers Association of Nevada, which opposes the proposal. The question itself asked whether people think the 2 percent tax on larger businesses would raise the needed revenue, and the electorate was almost evenly divided (47-46). My thought: This result will depend on how the question is asked, and the campaigns next year will determine...
Sue Lowden, the consummate Establishment candidate sliced up three years ago by the Sharron Angle buzzsaw, can only become Nevada’s next lieutenant governor by morphing into…Sharron Angle. In a transformation that will require more makeup than she ever wore during her anchorwoman career, Lowden will have to masquerade as a Tea Party conservative running against the Establishment. Instead of The Anointed One, as she was in 2010 during her disastrous bid against Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid...
In a remarkable interview Tuesday, North Las Vegas Mayor John Lee brimmed with optimism about North Las Vegas, trashed two high-ranking employees he forced out, referred to his city as a “financial stinkbomb” that could hurt tourism, said he does not know anyone in his jurisdiction who has been a crime victim and compared his police force to Metro, saying, “Our cops don’t shoot people when we stop them.” I kid you not. The interview occurred Tuesday morning with KNPR’s Dave Becker and featured...
