Episode 31 of "Gillespie" on

[podcast][/podcast] Episode 31 of “Gillespie” on continues the CPAC Recap.  But first, in my monologue, I discuss the unrest with the unions in Wisconsin and compare the situation to when a newbie Republican Governor named Mitch Daniels took over in Indiana.  From there, Ashley Sewell (the TxTrendy Chick) and I tag team to interview Vikrant […]

Was It a Good Idea For House Democrats to Flee Indiana? Spoiler Alert: NO!

Chris Worden of Indy’s Painfully Objective Political Analysis fame and I squared off yet again on Fox59’s “Face Off” segment.  What can I say?  They love us!  This time we discussed the legitimacy of the Indiana House Democrats fleeing Indiana to escape what they’re paid to do; serve the constituents they were elected to represent.

Daniels/Bosma to House Democrats: How About You Get Back To Work

Today’s stunt (let’s be honest, that’s what it was) by House Democrats to flee, not just Indianapolis, but the state, in a silly attempt to keep from doing any work and participate in the democratic process of legislating, was met with general disdain, not just from Republican legislators, but from constituents as well.  Now the […]

Debating Education Reform

A couple of weeks ago, I had the opportunity to appear on the Fox59 news segment “Face Off” where I matched wits with liberal blogger Chris Worden who blogs for “Indiana’s Painfully Objective Political Analysis” or IPOPA. We debated the merits of Governor Mitch Daniels’ education agenda. Due to Indiana’s weather the last few weeks […]

The Coward's Way Out

Yesterday, a man I look up to and admire, a man who gave me my first break into politics, was threatened.  And not just him, but his family as well. Via the Washington Post: INDIANAPOLIS — Indiana State Sen. Mike Delph has received an e-mail saying the man suspected of shooting U.S. Rep. Gabrielle Giffords […]

The Pro-Life Credentials of Mitch Daniels

Much continues to made of Governor Mitch Daniels “truce” statements.  Of course, the howling continues because when it’s brought up he continues to defend it. So what did he say now? Via the National Review: Laura Ingraham asks Mitch Daniels about his “truce” idea and he sticks with it: If you don’t accept that we […]
