Mehlman to Quit RNC

CNN reported that Ken Mehlman is going to leave as chair of the RNC. According to CNN’s John King, “He’s been on the gerbil wheel, as one of his close friends put it, for well in excess of six years now, and he’s tired.”

  • Yeah, that, and he just got the biggest spanking of his political life…

    Webb Wins and Dems Take Control of Congress, Two News Agencies Report

    The Associated Press and MSNBC have both called the Va. Senate race for Jim Webb, which would give Democrats control of the House and Senate for the first time since 1994.

    Ragin' Recount

    Get Ready for Ragin’ Recount 2006!

    Update: We may be wrong about the above. (mea culpa after the jump…)
