Why Carly Fiorina might actually be far better off NOT making the prime time CNN debate
As it stands now, there’s a good chance that Carly Fiorina may not qualify for the top ten, prime time CNN debate in a few weeks, and again be relegated to the so called “kiddie table.” This is because CNN is using an average of all polls, including those taken early on, before Carly made such an impact at the FOX debate. CNN says it | Read More »
Joe Biden IS running for President….(but just not right at this moment)
I’ve long believed ( and indeed have written here six months ago) that Liz Warren was running the perfect stealth campaign for president. Despite the hopes of her many supporters that she enter the race, it made no sense for her to do so. Why expose yourself early on to the all-out Clinton attack apparatus, and likely split the party in the process. Instead, far better | Read More »
Ann Coulter has completely lost her mind….and apparently so have a lot of conservatives.
The other day in Iowa, Ann Coulter was the opening act for the latest performance of the Trump three-ring circus. Possibly it was induced by the sheer elation of Trump’s plugging her new book, with the expectation that if she continues to be a camp-follower at future events, people will be bringing copies of her book up for her to autograph. I used to be | Read More »
Trump will NOT apologize for retweeting ‘Megyn Kelly is a bimbo.’ – “Look, I know bimbos when I see one. I married three of them”
The war between Trump and FOX took an oddly different and dark turn the other day. Displaying a near-childlike inability to “let sleeping dogs lie,” Trump welcomed back Megyn Kelly from vacation with a series of Tweets deriding her top-rated show. Trump poured fuel on the fire by retweeting a supporter’s post that said of Kelly, “The bimbo is back.” Until this latest exchange, it | Read More »
Dear Donald: Stop for now attacking the other candidates, and focus on the REAL enemies, Boehner and McConnell
Donald Trump has a unique opportunity in the next 5 weeks to further shake up the GOP race, and to increase his support among the GOP base. Trump’s been busy attacking everyone and anything. That’s politics. As one wag put it over 100 years ago, “politics ain’t beanbag.” And his attacks are having some success. After first vowing to ignore “Mr. Trump,” Jeb Bush has | Read More »
Hold on! Wait just a sec! THIS is supposed to be a BIG F***IN’ Deal?
A little travellin’ music for our Democrat friends… “Say it ain’t so, Joe!” More and more Democrats, in a near panic about Hillary’s plunging polls, and the ever increasing email ( and other) scandals, have suddenly convinced themselves that Biden’s Biden’s been observed the last week or so, walking around with a wistful, yet somewhat whimsical expression on his face, humming an old Clash | Read More »
Should the rest of the Democrats try to force Hillary out of the race before she testifies in October?
Hillary Clinton, some 16 months before the election, has now been forced into playing defense. That’s all she has left. She can’t talk about anything else except emails, and servers. Well..she can try, but nobody is paying attention. And as someone once noted, you can’t win if you can’t score.. Her “strategy” now is to hang on, bob and weave, duck, and somehow win the | Read More »
Why are so many conservatives, including many here at Red State, willing to trust Trump, but NOT Boehner or McConnell?
And yes, it’s a rhetorical question, but one I can’t answer. I am not a fan of Trump. Let’s make that clear up front. I’ve written about it here extensively. But that’s not the issue. It’s fair to say that the overarching theme at Red State these last 8 years has been that of near- total disgust with the GOPe, with its failure to | Read More »
Announcing the 2015 Bulwer-Lytton Prize winner for worst “make-believe” legislation: Bob Corker
In the event you are not familiar with with the Bulwer-Lytton prize for rotten fiction; it is named for the Englishman, Edward George Bulwar-Lytton, who in his 1830 novel “Paul Clifford,” penned this thoroughly wretched sentence: “It was a dark and stormy night; the rain fell in torrents — except at occasional intervals, when it was checked by a violent gust of wind which swept | Read More »
It is now 5 weeks since Hillary lied and said she had not received a subpoena; yet she has not been asked ONCE to explain her lie
On July 8th, Hillary Clinton, attempting to defuse reports about her burgeoning email scandal, told CNN’s Brianna Keilar, “….I’ve never had a subpoena…” This was a blatant, flat-out, bald-faced lie. And she knew it. The next day, Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-SC) 80% produced a copy of the subpoena that the Select Committee on Benghazi had issued to her in March. Since that | Read More »
