By John Krull The Statehouse File INDIANAPOLIS – In the race to be Indiana’s next governor, it is the season to carry water.

Commentary: From father to son through baseball

By John Krull The Statehouse File INDIANAPOLIS – The summer afternoon heat beats down on this Little League baseball diamond.

Commentary: Total voter recall

By Abdul Hakim-Shabazz IndyPolitics.Org I’ve been waiting all day to use that headline from the really bad Arnold Schwarzenegger film.

Commentary: Daniels is sensitive about Major Moves criticism

By John Krull The Statehouse File INDIANAPOLIS – Gov. Mitch Daniels apparently doesn’t want anyone to question or criticize the decision to lease the Indiana Toll Road for 75 years.

Commentary: Make me happy, cut the bull

By John Krull The Statehouse File INDIANAPOLIS – Someone asked me the other day why seeing politicians disagree bothers me so much. It was a fair question. The answer is that the fact that politicians from different parties disagree doesn’t bother me. I expect them to. It’s the way that they disagree that bugs me. […]

Commentary: There’s much for an economist to applaud in ‘liberal’ Indiana

By Cecil Bohanon Indiana Policy Review In May 1988, Professor James McGill Buchanan, the 1986 recipient of the Nobel Prize in Economics, told the graduating class at Ball State University that he “had never been attracted to the romantic nonsense that government or politicians know what is best . . .” He encouraged the students […]

Commentary: Lugar’s wise words were not disloyal

By John Krull The Statehouse File INDIANAPOLIS – So, let me get this straight. Some Republicans are miffed about a statement Sen. Richard Lugar, R-Ind., made following his defeat in the primary by Treasurer Richard Mourdock.

Commentary: The political middle matters

By Abdul Hakim-Shabazz IndyPolitics.Org I’ve always maintained that political purists who don’t like RINOs (Republicans in Name Only) or DINOs (Democrats in Name Only) may want to try winning a competitive election without them – because it’s not going to happen.
