Molly Ball has an article in today's Las Vegas Review Journal about the Gibbons scandal, this one focusing on his opponent Dina Titus (D-NV), and a new ad -- that may or may not air -- which refers to Mazzeo's accusations. Ball points to the fact that Titus says that she will not comment on the allegations, but the ad, which was inadvertently posted on the web states: "Gibbons talks about family values, but on a rainy night in Las Vegas, he's at a bar drinking, then walks an intoxicated woman to her car. We can't trust Jim Gibbons' judgment; we can't trust Jim Gibbons to be governor." The Titus campaign is not sure that they will air the ad. LINK

In an op-ed for the Los Angeles Times, Prof. Ross Baker looks at the way Democrats have tacked right on gun control. LINK
"Democrats have run up the white flag. They have evidently concluded that curtailing the right of gun ownership is a nonstarter, especially if they intend to pursue victory in 50 states."
"That's the goal of Democratic National Committee Chairman Howard Dean. His vision of breaking the GOP lock on states such as Wyoming, Montana and Colorado has caused the Democrats to holster their olive branch, snatch the Winchester from the cold, dead hands of Charlton Heston and ride off under the leadership of Montana's pro-gun Democratic Gov. Brian Schweitzer to confront the Mountain West Republican Party. We should not be surprised if Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton shows up at the 2008 Democratic Convention togged out like Annie Oakley, shooting cigars out of the mouth of her husband, the former president."
