There is just something a bit creepy about this. I’ve heard stories of Charlie Crist’s fan from two different Governors, both of whom swore me to secrecy until news of his fan was made public elsewhere. I don’t know how much of a secret it actually is, but both of these Governors were a bit dumbstruck by it.In fact, one told me that at a joint press conference the Crist folks wanted to get into the press room early to make sure the fan was in position to take care of Charlie.

They are both operating from the unproven (and likely erroneous) assumption that they can duke it out forever without taking on Trump in the process, and | Read More »

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Or should I say “Hilariously Ridiculous? You be the judge. I missed this earlier, but lucky for me The Right Scoop didn’t. This is absolutely hilarious. Andrea Mitchell was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning and her reaction to the Cruz “Office Space” campaign ad is … well it’s priceless. I’ll be honest with you, I love his clip. | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Donald Trump has a problem with God. Or more specifically, he has a ‘God problem.’ At least when it comes to voters in South Carolina, for whom Christian faith is often a requirement in a public official.
