“This administration is populated by people who’ve spent their careers bashing government. They’re not just small-government conservatives—they’re Grover Norquist, strangle-it-in-the-bathtub conservatives. It’s a cognitive disconnect for them to be able to do something well in an arena that they have so derided and reviled all these years.”

Crossing the border

News from Arizona:
A new poll shows the U.S. Senate race between Republican incumbent Jon Kyl and Democratic challenger Jim Pederson, a Valley real estate developer, getting closer.

A new Rocky Mountain Poll out Thursday shows Kyl leading Pederson, 40 percent to 33 percent. That is closer than a number of other polls that have shown Kyl with larger leads.

However, a Zogby International/Wall Street Journal online poll also showed the race with small Kyl lead.

You'd have to think Republicans are getting tired of seeing seats they once thought were safe become competitive.

And Democrats aren't pulling any punches on this one, either. Bill Clinton is coming to host a fundraiser on June 1st. Arizona readers who can afford $500/plate are encouraged to attend. Other who want to help can do so here.
