John Dingell, Ready to Sell the Bear's Hide

Feb. 24, 2014

Rep. John D. Dingell, D-Mich., and Roll Call have grown together on Capitol Hill, having both arrived in 1955. Now, with Dingell announcing his plans to retire at the end of the 113th Congress, it’s worth noting that over the half-century-plus of his tenure, he has remained remarkably consistent in his larger-than-life presence, coupled with his love of blunt, saucy language.

'House of Cards' -- Inspiration for the Politically Oppressed

Feb. 19, 2014

We might be reaching the stage of development where everything can be viewed through the “House of Cards” prism. The second season of the Netflix original series, which was released on Feb. 14 and has set forth a torrent of status tweets and cultural piggy-backing, even provides an illustration of the Republican establishment’s attempt to marginalize the tea party.
