Monday’s Musings

Monday, March 7th, 2011

Lots of things to talk about this morning, so let’s get started… If anyone thought having a few days to think would change embattled Indiana Secretary of State Charlie White mind and he would step down, not so much.  I communicated with White this weekend via text messaging and when I asked if he was […]

Will Democrats Decide?

Tuesday, February 22nd, 2011

Indiana State Treasurer Richard Mourdock is scheduled to announce this morning that he’s running for the U.S. Senate and will challenge incumbent Richard Lugar in the 2012 May primary. I find this entire dynamic fascinating.   Both candidates will bring their own strengths and challenges to the race.  Lugar has the advantages of incumbency and fine-tuned, […]

On Richard, Republicans & Rupert?

Saturday, February 19th, 2011

The bad thing about nice weather is you have no desire to stay indoors and blog about the news of the day.  Luckily, it’s a little cooler outside this morning so I can scribble down a few thoughts before the lovely Mrs. Shabazz and I go spend the day just hanging out and enjoying each […]

New Year, New Resolutions

Sunday, January 2nd, 2011

With the start of the new year comes the new year’s resolutions.   We all have goals to lose weight, quit smoking, be better people, or in my case finish that novel that’s been sitting in my laptop for three years.   I’m not sure what resolutions some of my favorite politicos in Indiana made for the […]

Political Fallout and Follow Up

Thursday, December 23rd, 2010

You would think that with a day or two before Christmas the political rumor mill would slow down, but it hasn’t.  I have some interesting follow-up information on a couple items I posted about earlier this week. Disaster Averted It looks like part of the reason Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels wants Eric Holcomb to be […]

Saturday Morning Posts

Saturday, December 18th, 2010

I thought the gossip, rumor and innuendo might slow down a bit this week, but it didn’t.  So with that said, here we go. With Eric Holcomb being named as the “front runner” to replace Murray Clark as the head of the Indiana Republican Party, speculation is being drawn that it’s a sign that Mitch […]

Organizing Thoughts

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

The nice part about Organization Day is all the gossip and other tidbits of information you get to pick up along the way.  So with that said, here we go… Although all eyes were on House Speaker Brian Bosma Tuesday and his announcement to “get to work” and appointing two Democrats to committee chairmanship, a […]

Term Limits of Endearment

Wednesday, September 1st, 2010

I had a very good conversation with U.S. Senator Dick Lugar Tuesday evening.  We talked about Iraq, Afghanistan, the 2010 midterm elections and his own re-election bid. I asked him his reaction to critics who say he’s been in office too long and what he thinks about a primary challenger?  He told me he will […]
