There is precedent: The last NV senator to lose his re-election was given consolation prize of administration appointment. Anyone know who?

Good morning, everyone. If you missed it last night, Rachel Maddow’s excruciating and lengthy recap of the Ensign scandaland her interview with Doug Hampton were painful to watch. There wasn’t really much news, but the sick, creepy story and Hampton’s flailing for evanescent justice were sad. On a lighter note: In the spirit of The Hotline’s “Shot and Chaser” feature, here’s one: Shot: Harry Reid in that web video this week: ““The rich are getting richer; the poor are getting poorer and the...
Good morning, everyone. That horrific attack in Paris has sparked a lot of provocative and insightful commentary amid the usual Internet nonsense, some of which I thought I’d share with you in case you have missed it. The Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg was his usual insightful self, The New Yorker’s George Packer was brief but brilliant and The New York Times’ Ross Douthat was quite piercing. The media's increasing tendency to self-censor, which seems to follow such attacks or even threats, also...
DAYS UNTIL THE GOVERNOR ANNOUNCES HIS TAX PLAN IN THE STATE OF THE STATE: 8 DAYS UNTIL THE GREATEST LEGISLATIVE SESSION EVER BEGINS: 25 DAYS UNTIL THE STATE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN: 175 DAYS UNTIL THE 2016 ELECTION: 671 Good morning, everyone. I was gratified to see the play my first column received in today’s Reno Gazette-Journal. I am really looking forward to writing for the paper that has pilfered so much Southern Nevada talent (Ben Spillman, Trevon Millard) and reclaimed...
Good morning, everyone. I came, I saw, I wanted to leave again. Yes, dear Flashees, the first day back, despite those kids in Carson City on Monday, left me with a sense of déjà vu. But I still remain optimistic for the session because I always am before it starts. Then it starts. And ends. At some point, the nattering nabobs in the Assembly GOP will either be marginalized by those who actually want to accomplish something rather than tear down everything. Some of these freshmen Republicans...
DAYS UNTIL THE GOVERNOR ANNOUNCES HIS TAX PLAN IN THE STATE OF THE STATE: 10 DAYS UNTIL THE GREATEST LEGISLATIVE SESSION EVER BEGINS: 27 DAYS UNTIL THE STATE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN: 177 DAYS UNTIL THE 2016 ELECTION: 673 Good morning, everyone. Happy New Year! Did you miss me? I wish I could tell you how much I missed all of you, but I was busytaking over a country and addressing its people. Alas, the coup executed by Michele Fiore deposed me, and I had to return to Home Sweet...
Good morning, everyone. Tune in tonight to the last airing on Sinclair’s network of “Ralston Reports.” Special guests will include former governors and senators, movie stars and others. I kid you not. It’s not goodbye, dear Flashees. It’s au revoir. It’s Sinatra’s birthday today, so this is fitting. This is the last Morning Flash of 2014. There will be no premium content until after the 1st, either. I am taking a break to relax, rest and recharge. I will be mostly off the grid, unless, of...
TONIGHT'S RALSTON REPORTS: We'll see. DAYS UNTIL THE GOVERNOR ANNOUNCES HIS TAX PLAN IN THE STATE OF THE STATE: 35 DAYS UNTIL THE GREATEST LEGISLATIVE SESSION EVER BEGINS: 53 DAYS UNTIL THE STATE GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN: 202 DAYS UNTIL THE 2016 ELECTION: 698 Good morning, everyone. As you will see below, Storm Fagan is beginning to publicly self-destruct. And as she does, she has either chosen to and/or been advised to play the gender card, a thoroughly offensive and Bilbrayesque...
Good morning, everyone. Senate Majority Leader (for a little longer) Harry Reid clearly is maintaining his sense of humor while still refusing to have a self-editing mechanism installed, as this interview shows. (He repeated similar sentiments to The New York Times). To wit: Asked if he is concerned about a possible Sandoval run, Reid deadpanned: “About as much as I’m worried about you and your — I won’t say it. I’m not worried.” “It’s not as if I haven’t had a real challenge over the...
Good morning, everyone. I wonder how the political terrorists who helped elevate the Fiore-Hansen-Wheeler triumvirate because of their common interest in immolation feel as they see their rare grip on pseudo-power is about to evaporate. As Bush 41 once said about another ill-fated invasion, “This will not stand.” Sooner or later, the MSM will not be able to ignore the manifest tax problems of the tax chair/majority leader, nor will the IRS. But beyond that, I just sense there is too much...
Good morning, everyone. “There are a lot of people who got elected in Nevada who didn’t expect it,” he said. “And I didn’t expect it either.” That quote buried in a Review-Journal storySunday from Gov. Brian Sandoval could be the perfect encapsulation of Nevada’s red wave this year: Wildly popular governor who helped wave be as broad and deep as it was acknowledges surprise, as do some people he has never heard of and whose votes he will need (maybe) for a tax package.
