Tea party challenges to Republican senators are fizzling across the country, leaving Mississippi as the only state where a longtime Republican officeholder is seriously endangered by a primary threat from his right.
Sen. Rand Paul, a possible Republican presidential candidate, sued the Obama administration Wednesday over the National Security Agency's mass collection of millions of Americans' phone records.
Kentucky Republican Sen. Rand Paul filed a class-action lawsuit Wednesday to halt the NSA's phone-records collection program, and invited millions of Americans to sign up as co-plaintiffs to block overbearing government searches.
Lofty rhetoric with a lofty price: the National Taxpayers Union has conducted a line-by-line analysis of President Obama's lengthy State of the Union address to discover that the actual price tag for all those words would add $39.995 billion a year to the deficit.

Here's looking at you, Harry Reid. In the final days leading up to the expiration date for America's "temporary budget," the House of Representatives passed a continuing resolution that will fund all parts of the government at sequestration levels through Dec. 15. It just won't fund Obamacare.
Conservatives are sometimes their own worst enemy. A group of Capitol Hill aides who worked for Jim DeMint when he was a senator from South Carolina have set up a political action committee, the Senate Conservatives Fund, to cleanse Congress of whom they consider squishy Republicans. It's a worthwhile endeavor, except when the "squishes" turn out to be conservatives.
A fiery political battle was raging among House Republicans this week over a temporary budget bill to keep the government funded when the new fiscal year begins on Oct. 1.
These were once internal family squabbles, dismissed as growing pains for a Republican Party in search of itself. Now they are public family squabbles under the careful scrutiny of major pollsters who ponder the ongoing "internal dissent" in the GOP, and its potential side effects.
Prominent tea party members are preparing for big wins in 2014 due to negative fallout from President Obama's signature health care reform.
