Cut and Run Republicans | Buzz Blog
We need your help.

Newspapers and media companies nationwide are closing or suffering mass layoffs since the coronavirus impacted all of us starting in March. City Weekly's entire existence is directly tied to people getting together in groups--in clubs, restaurants, and at concerts and events--which are the industries most affected by new coronavirus regulations.

Our industry is not healthy. Yet, City Weekly has continued publishing thanks to the generosity of readers like you. Utah needs independent journalism more than ever, and we're asking for your continued support of our editorial voice. We are fighting for you and all the people and businesses hardest hit by this pandemic.

You can help by making a one-time or recurring donation on, which directs you to our Galena Fund 501(c)(3) non-profit, a resource dedicated to help fund local journalism. It is never too late. It is never too little. Thank you.

Cut and Run Republicans



This blog via the American Spectator makes a good point about Romney opting out of re-election 2006 to run for presidents leaving his fellow Massachusetians (?) high and dry while the state was embroiled in major battles over gay marriage and health care. Now Palin, mysteriously retiring from the Alaskan seat of power to become…what?  A rapper alongside Joaquin Phoenix? And before that our own guv leaving Utah to play Marco Polo for Obama.

What’s the deal here? What happened to republicans with follow-through? Where’s the stickabilities? That’s not even counting Sanford in South Carolina. What gives there? At least a democrat would do the courtesy of finishing out a lame-duck term, and at least know how to hide an extra-marital affair better.

Makes you wonder who’s gonna step up for the GOP in 2012. Because right now, it really feels like they’re running around like a bunch of chickens with their heads cut off.
