“Lap dancers would be cited for lewd conduct for improperly touching customers under a new code proposed by Las Vegas police,” the Las Vegas Review-Journal reported today. Hmm. No one forces these gals to work there, and no one forces customers to go there.

* John Fund reported in Political Diary yesterday that former Arizona Congressman J.D. Hayworth may mull a GOP primary run against Arizona Sen. John McCain next year. Hayworth has a pretty good gig going these days as a drive-time conservative talk show host in Phoenix, but he hasn’t forgotten a McCain-inspired Department of Justice investigation trying to tie J.D. to Jack Abramoff.

* Campaign Tip: Dear Leader yesterday conducted a photo op at the White House in his never-ending efforts to shove ObamaCare down the nation’s throat. It included 150 doctors dressed in sparkling white lab coats – despite the fact that 2/3 of doctors oppose Obama’s plan. Lessen to Republican Candidates: Do not let Democrats get away with pretending that firefighters, cops and school teachers support on the Democrat candidate. Create your own small groups of firefighters, cops and teachers who support you and include the support of firefighters, cops and teachers in your campaigns.
