Dude: Why Did George Soros Just Write ANOTHER Big Check to John Kasich?
Only five other entities have contributed more to the Kasich-linked New Day for America Political Action Committee than Soros Fund Management. Now –like the Church Lady might ask– “Why would that be, hmmm?” Not that it really matters, mind you, but George Soros recently wrote a second check to John Kasich for $115,000, bringing his total Kasich Philanthropy to over $210,000. Yes, yes, I know. | Read More »
Tuff Luv For Ted: 1) Get Pissed Off; 2) Grow a Beard
Sadly, many of us have been there. Very sadly… At some point, hopefully in our stupid, inglorious youth, we found ourselves in some crappy-ass hick, redneck bar at 2:30 in the morning… The house band (usually called “Pegasus” or “Stryker” or “HellFyer”) is packing up, the once-jammed dance-floor is awash in monitor cords, drum cases, mixer boards. A stray banquet chair incongruously sits there on | Read More »
CLEVELAND, WE HAVE A PROBLEM: Why the Convention MUST get to a Second Ballot
DON’T DRINK THE DRANO YET! The most important factoid yet, while I’m digging through all the stats: Donald Trump is wildly, wildly unpopular with Republican voters. Despite having amassed a plurality of the Primary Vote thus far, the Anti-Trump Vote is almost TWICE AS LARGE IN TOTAL TERMS: As of 11:06PM, March 15, the total votes cast thus far are: TRUMP: 6,492,202 EVERYONE ELSE: 11,378,071 | Read More »
Screwtape’s Letters from the Trump Campaign…
My Dear Wormwood, * It was very refreshing to hear that your patient had recently become “confused” about the various terms being thrown around to describe what it means to believe in personal liberty. I especially like it when this confusion can be framed as Mere Conservatism. If any modifier can be attached to “conservative”, the more it helps our cause. I especially enjoy Mr. | Read More »
DON’T LOOK NOW: The CBS/YouGov Poll Shows a 3-Way Tie in Ohio… And Cruz in Second in Florida…
Really, now: Who really knows what any of this means; and I say “tie”advisedly if you factor in the Margin Of Error. OHIO: TRUMP: 33% KASICH: 33% CRUZ: 27% FLORIDA: TRUMP: 44% CRUZ: 24% RUBIO: 21% But, I think it does mean there is a powerful reason to believe that a Vote for Ted Cruz, is, well, a vote for Ted Cruz. In Florida, | Read More »
Trump Admits He Rents Politicians; I wonder– How Much Did Palin, Drudge, Sessions & Carson Cost Donald?
We are about to descend into madness, and I blame some putative “conservatives” for the rapid acceleration. Despite Hag Coulter’s scorn, there are alarming parallels between the rise of the recent Trump fevers, and the embryonic movements of Adolf Hitler in 1922 Bavaria. I won’t go into the too-obvious appeals to an amorphous Nationalism. Or the singling out of entire ethnic groups as enemies of | Read More »
I’m Chiming In Here: A Couple of Quick Observations. UPDATE: Cruz and Kasich Battle for Second
1) There is some reason that the Neil Bush folks have climbed aboard the Ted Cruz Ship 2) More people are STILL voting against The Nerf Ball than are voting for him. He still hasn’t reached a majority status win in any state, including Trump’s natural stomping grounds such as Mississippi and Alabama. His percentage totals keep dropping in Mississippi as the results come in. | Read More »
Donald Trump and Mrs. Bell…
The older I get, the more I’ve come to realize I may be among the most smiled-upon Human Beings in the history of the world. Of course, when you are in the midst of it all –growing up, and all– you don’t really notice the blessings when they are coming at you faster than mayflies splattering on a windshield. I now realize that I may | Read More »
FINALLY, an Explanation! J. Don Thurmond
All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing. What has been will be again, what has been done will be done again; there is nothing new under the sun. Is there anything of which one can say, “Look! This is something new”? It was here already, long ago, it was | Read More »
What the Hell is Going on Here? Just WHAT THE HELL IS GOING ON !?
Jefferson Beauregard Sessions: My mother used to walk out of the room after switching off “Hogan’s Heroes”. Her mother–my Gramma– survived the Czarist anti-Jewish pogroms, and the show disgusted her. Even it’s cartoon caricatures of Sergeant Schultz and Colonel Klink as buffoons, some twenty years after the end of Nazi Germany didn’t assuage her burning rage. “There’s nothing funny about Nazis,” is all she’d say | Read More »
