Dan Thomasson, writing in the Leesburg Daily Commercial, is far too conventional to understand Newt Gingrich’s historical argument about the role of the judiciary. But, unwittingly or not, his objections remain useful in counteracting Gingrich’s radical agenda.
Star Parker continues to insult African-Americans by attempting to sell them an ideology that is hostile to their best interests. If she actually understands what the Republican Party really stands for today, then she is a traitor to her race.
Barack Obama is derided by the right as a socialist intent on waging class war against the rich, yet he has embraced their beloved supply-side economics and adapted it to his own electoral purposes. No wonder they hate him.
The Leesburg Daily Commercial, displaying its usual level of courage and wisdom, opposes an extra five-cent gas tax in Lake County. Their grasp of the issues is as weak as their commitment to social justice.
America’s withdrawal from Iraq raises many troubling questions, not the least of which is why we don’t seem to be big enough as a nation to apologize to the Iraqi people for over 100,000 civilian deaths and untold suffering and loss.

The Leesburg Daily Commercial brings us yet more hypocrisy from Cal Thomas, who this time ignores the Biblical Commandment against adultery in his desperation to elevate Newt Gingrich above Mitt Romney in the race for the G.O.P. nomination. Delicious.
The Leesburg Daily Commercial continues to provide Russ Sloan with a weekly soapbox from which to preach his plutocratic propaganda.

Larry Metz has declared war on the poorest people in Lake County. Having voted for steep Medicaid cuts, he now seeks to prevent local hospitals from using the proceeds of a minuscule tax to help pay for indigent care. We must not allow human life to be subjugated to Metz’s political ambitions within the Republican Party.
By demonizing illegal immigrants, the right-wing distracts ordinary Americans from the real causes of the country’s woes. And in attacking the 14th Amendment, the right exposes the utter hypocrisy of its professed adherence to strict construction of the Constitution.
Star Parker sells the dangerous myth of American Exceptionalism by misrepresenting America’s true ranking in the world. We’re not number one; we’re number ten – or worse.
The Leesburg Daily Commercial has been providing the NRA with free publicity it doesn’t need or deserve. Those of us who do not wish to live in the Wild West need to break the gun lobby’s stranglehold over the state legislature and our public discourse.
