My apologies for being gone so long. Between the Right Online conservative blogger conference in Las Vegas last weekend and losing my friend Kenny Guinn last Thursday, time just wasn’t on my side. But let’s hop right back in the saddle again, shall we?
Despite the 100+ degree heat, grief-stricken former Nevada First Lady Dema Guinn insisted on standing outside the church where former Gov. Kenny Guinn was eulogized by Senate Minority Leader Bill Raggio and former chief-of-staff Pete Ernaut yesterday and personally accepted the condolences of the 1,000-plus well-wishers who attended and thanked them.
Dema told me afterward it was something she felt she had to do; that Kenny would have done the same for her and it was just something she felt she owed to the people who supported her husband for all these many years. Talk about grace under fire and class.
On the other hand, Gov. Jim Gibbons, the ink not yet dry on his divorce decree, brought a date to the funeral service. The pair sat in the front row, next to John Ensign. No further commentary is necessary.
Meanwhile, this just in:
“A judge has blocked the most controversial sections of Arizona’s new immigration law from taking effect Thursday, handing a major legal victory to opponents of the crackdown. The law will still take effect Thursday, but without many of the provisions that angered opponents — including sections that required officers to check a person’s immigration status while enforcing other laws.”
Somehow I suspect there’s going to be a run on blood pressure medicine later today.
Riddle me this, Batman. Who said the following, Barack Obama or Sharron Angle? “The private sector, not government, is, was and always will be the source of America’s economic future.”
Nope. It was President Barack Obama in a speech at UNLV on July 9, 2010. Go figure, huh?
