Election year 2014 is the third time the Republican Party has hitched its wagon to the tea party. In 2010, angry tea partiers shouted down incumbents in town hall meetings, put Democrats into a defensive, crotch-covering crouch and delivered the House of Representatives to the GOP. In 2012, tea party zeal morphed into extreme stupidity and weirdness that freaked out moderate voters and wasted a Republican opportunity to win the Senate. Now, two years later, the tea party is both chastened and more entrenched.

Brief Connells history: It's 1984 and third-year law student Mike Connell decides to delay real life by forming a rock 'n' roll band with younger brother David, who happens to be a whiz on bass. After adding several other college pals to their fold, the Connells become a staple on the Raleigh, N.C., club circuit.Their sound is earnest pop sung to a strong alternative beat. The band's look is laid-back, composed of whatever they have in the closet that's clean. And the group's attitude is low-key -- no prima donnas in this bunch.

ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins passing coordinator and wide receivers coach Terry Robiskie figures he has all 12 opposing teams on the schedule caught in a dilemma. Sort of a one-or-the-other, either-or outlook on how to defend against receivers Albert Connell and Michael Westbrook. "I think that is the one thing we like about the offensive situation that we're in," Robiskie said. "We have two guys that are equal. We have two guys that either one of them can go and get 79, 80 [catches]

ASHBURN, Va. -- When Washington Redskins receiver Albert Connell shattered the club's record for the 40-yard dash, he still heard that team officials doubted his ability to become a legitimate deep threat.When he vowed to catch 80 balls this season, Connell learned that the Redskins were continuing their pursuit of every big-name disgruntled wide-out.But with no other viable alternative, the Redskins stuck with Connell. Luckily for the club, the fastest Redskin has shaken off skeptics as easily as he has NFL cornerbacks.

ASHBURN, Va. - Washington Redskins wide receiver Albert Connell will not start Saturday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Interim coach Terry Robiskie decided to bench Connell yesterday in favor of 38-year-old Irving Fryar. Connell was held without a catch in Sunday's 32-13 loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Robiskie originally did not plan to make any changes to the lineup. But Connell's erratic play all season mixed with the poor team effort in Sunday's game, left Robiskie with little choice but to make a statement to the players he hopes to coach next season.

With Congress in the doldrums of summer recess, our town has inevitably sunk to the game of making political mountains out of molehills. The latest example is disclosure that the campaign manager of Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell confided to a political associate, last January no less, that he was "sort of holding my nose for two years" working for Mr. McConnell. He was doing so, he explained, in hope of it being "a big benefit" for a previous employer, Sen. Rand Paul, also of Kentucky, who is said to have 2016 presidential aspirations.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell will not be facing a challenge from actress Ashley Judd when he runs for re-election next year. Though he may be happy to have avoided the physical comparison -- she, after all, played Marilyn Monroe in a movie, while he looks like an ancient sea turtle dressed in a $1,000 suit -- the Kentucky Republican may miss having such an attractive target for his attack machine. Mr. McConnell is not all that popular back home. Democrats, of course, can't stand him, and tea party Republicans may like him even less.

Now that GOP Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell has wasted the last four years trying to unseat President Barack Obama (and getting paid for it), he and the rest of Congress should get down to fixing the mess they have made of things before America implodes and goes the way of Greece.

Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell is accusing President Obama of acting "arrogantly" in his recent recess appointment of Richard Cordray as head of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau ("Obama picks consumer chief," Jan 5). I would say that "arrogance" more closely describes the character of Senator McConnell himself. Was it not "arrogant" for him to make it a point of announcing from the beginning that the goal of the Republican Party was to make Mr. Obama a one-term president?

Editor: Thank you for writing about the passing of Dr. Al O'Connell and the tremendous legacy he established at Harford Community College. Dr. O'Connell transformed Harford Community College and left behind a strong base for leaders that followed him there. He also transformed lives. Dr. O' Connell was my very first professional mentor. When I was 25 and working in the admissions office at the college, he saw something in me that I did not see. He encouraged me to pursue a career in community college leadership and for several years, as I advanced through several positions at the college, he took me under his wing and guided me on a path that led me, eventually, to the presidency of Montgomery County Community College in suburban Philadelphia.

In a countdown to crisis time like this weekend, if you can only watch one channel, once again, I would make it CNN. On one level, the argument is simple. In terms of cable, there is little or none of the blatant ideology that drives MSNBC and Fox News to make facts fit a political narrative or the world view of their perceived audience. In terms of the networks, none can commit the airtime to constantly updating the story like a webpage as new developments emerge in the way a committed cable channel like CNN can. So, I spent most of my weekend so far with CNN, and there are two aspects of the coverage especially worth talking about -- so far. First, CNN's scored one of the timeliest interviews of the summer when it had Sen. Mitch McConnell on "State of the Union" at 9 a.m. (ET)

On Wednesday evening, I heard a good portion of Sen. Mitch McConnell's Senate address, in which he lambasted President Barack Obama for bringing terror suspects into the USA for trial and punishment in civilian courts and prisons, rather than trying them outside with military tribunals and incarcerating them at Guantanamo Bay ("US detains Somali target," July 6). While the good senator repeatedly warned that this practice poses a threat to domestic security and gives undue "privilege" to the suspects, I found myself feeling just a little bit proud of the president's direction in this case.
