Jeb Bush: the establishment pinata

A funny thing happened on the way to the coronation. Establishment favorite, Jeb Bush, morphed from the 800-lb gorilla in the race to the huge, not-very-bright, and slow moving wildebeest ...

Anti-Establishment vote dominates Iowa GOP caucus goers

Though there is a wide variety of opinions among RedState contributors on Donald Trump, we are pretty well united on one thing: Trump is only possible because the GOP has been such a steaming pile of #FAIL in dealing with every possible challenge. The only thing it has done passably well is kowtow to Barack Obama while pretending to fight him tooth and nail. Erick | Read More »

The Democratic Dearth of Competence

It is definitely true that all the Democratic candidates for President this year all have bad ideas (Bernie Sanders) or no ideas at all (everyone else). But the more germane fact about the sorry crop of Democrats on offer (even if you include Joe Biden) is that they have been fantastically bad at actually accomplishing anything. Perhaps the silver lining of this already bizarre and | Read More »

Five Reasons to Think Everything Will Be Okay

At this time, plenty of people out in the Online Right have placed their faces firmly in their palms and have not stopped shaking their heads. The reason?

Rauner fighting for a common sense budget in Illinois

Illinois has suffered mismanagement for years, which is why finally the state managed to elect a Republican Governor, Bruce Rauner. It’s budget time in Illinois, and the Governor is pushing for some common sense ideas (enact reform instead of passing yet more tax-and-spend bills). The radicals are angry, so he deserves some support on this.

The Beginning of the End

The beginning of the end of the Republican Party has started. On Friday, I told you the Republican Party is dying. Then, yesterday, Ross Douthat in the New York Times echoed my key point. Mine was that the Republican leaders in Washington would see the decline of Donald Trump as proof that they need do nothing to change. Like the Bourbons of France, they’d forget | Read More »

Mt. McKinley Is Still There

Barack Obama has decided, by the executive order, to rename Mt. McKinley, North America’s highest peak, Denali. That is the traditional name of the mountain, but it was changed back in 1917 or so to honor President McKinley. The Alaska Delegation, including the Republicans, wanted it to go back to Denali. The Ohio delegation was blocking the legislation. President McKinley was from Ohio. I will | Read More »

Doug Schoen’s off-tune whistling through the graveyard of Hillary Clinton’s electoral hopes.

Douglas Schoen has a thankless job: to wit, trying to make Hillary Clinton sound not-horrible. And no, I DON’T thank him for it, in fact.
