Here we go, the echo chamber.
And the Free Beacon can't even get her name right in their zeal to publish this.

A dark money outfit forced to settle with the secretary of state, a vehicle for an independent expenditure war to come and an echo chamber so we can hear them roar: Those are the new PACs registered last week in Nevada. They are: ►Alliance for America's Future, which had to register, because of that settlement with the SOS. ►Women's Empowerment PAC, which is designed to help female Democratic candidates and run by state Sens. Debbie Smith and Joyce Woodhouse. I read this as a way to get more...
State Sen. Mark Hutchison: Beloved by the most popular elected official in Nevada, fighter against Obamacare, "committed conservative." So says the lieutenant governor hopeful's first ad, now running on cable stations. This was to be expected. Hutchison is unknown, so the simple strategy is: Boost his name ID, define him (really, he is a conservative!), maybe bait Sue Lowden into spending money, then go after her. By the way, I had a forensic lip reader look at the spot, and he tells me this is...
Welcome to the Weekly Report. This week: 1. Juicy gaming insider nuggets: Harry and Sheldon, AGA and Sheldon, The Sheldon Primary (view from The Weekly Insiders) and a great old Sheldon video 2. The Schneider-Brager noise, Weekly Insiders on Harry and his grandkid, Lucy and the margin tax, downtown and a strike 3. Smartest/dumbest moves of the week A QUARTET OF GAMING NUGGETS Nugget No. 1 – I have alluded to the Harry Reid-Sheldon Adelson relationship in the past. They talk; there’s a mutual...
News item: Las Vegas’ unemployment rate is 8.6 percent. The national rate is 6.7 percent. If irrational exuberance has a smell, the Four Seasons Ballroom reeked of it Wednesday morning. Exultation wafted through the air, tingling the receptive olfactories of hundreds of attendees at the annual unveiling of the Las Vegas Perspective. The slick, thick publication usually teems with dry, albeit invaluable facts about Southern Nevada life, from basic demographics to education metrics to healthcare...
Lowden backs returning to legislative appointment of U.S. senators; Hutchison defends extending expiring taxes
In lengthy interviews with the Douglas County Republican Party, lieutenant governor candidates Sue Lowden and Mark Hutchison answered some amazing questions, including what they would do if the president signed an executive order to "require that all guns should be turned in." I kid you not. Ah, rural Nevada. You can read both of the interviews here. They are something else. Most astonishing was Lowden heartily embracing repealing the 17th Amendment and returning to state legislatures the...
The campaign for the most important item on the Nevada ballot has begun with a mailer to voters from the folks trying to kill what they call the “Margin Tax Initiative.” The piece, which is below, is quite something in what it says and what it doesn’t say. For instance: ►There is no such thing as the “Margin Tax Initiative.” It’s called “The Education Initiative.” I wonder why the foes don’t call it that. ►While we are talking about names, this group lists some of its members on the side of the...
