    GOP Primary: ‘Conservatives’ now dead to me

    I’ve been promising myself I’d do this for some time now. This is a list of people and entities on the right I’ve written off, as if they were dead to me, as a result of the 2016 Republican presidential primary. An election that will surely go down as the most contentious in modern history, due in no small part to small-handed vulgarian Donald Trump. Frustrated at | Read More »

    Had my first real Twitter battle today and disappointing doesn’t begin to cover it

    And it’s only February! I got into my first official Twitter battle today… and it was with a heavy weight of sorts. Naturally it was about the 2016 Republican presidential primary. As a spirited supporter of Marco Rubio, I was thoroughly dismayed to see a hit piece dropped on him by the propaganda site Breitbart News on the eve of the South Carolina primary, although my | Read More »

    Finally! Marco Rubio rips Breitbart over well-timed hatchet job

    To the great satisfaction of his supporters who have seen their candidate get unfairly dragged over the coals repeatedly by Breitbart News, Republican presidential candidate Marco Rubio finally pushed back. And Rubio said what those who’ve been paying attention have known all along — that Breitbart News has become a “conspiracy” website that’s hardly credible. Appearing with Fox News’ Neil Cavuto, Rubio made a rare | Read More »

    When it comes to Marco Rubio, what in the name of hell is going on at Breitbart?

    After watching Breitbart “writer” Matthew Boyle spend much of the day Friday attacking Republican presidential contender Marco Rubio, I was reminded of a piece I wrote back in October about the website that is still relevant today. It also made me wonder if Breitbart News Executive Chairman Stephen K. Bannon believes that once the election is behind us, his operation will suddenly regain credibility with | Read More »

    #CruzPhotoshop all the rage after latest shenanigans from Cruz campaign

    What is Ted Cruz thinking? The hashtag #CruzPhotshop was all the rage Thursday on Twitter after Team Marco called out Ted Cruz for using a poorly Photoshopped image of Marco Rubio shaking hands with President Barack Obama. Politico reported: Marco Rubio’s campaign bashed the “culture of dishonesty” of Ted Cruz’s campaign for launching a website that uses a doctored picture of the Florida senator shaking President Barack | Read More »

    Donald Trump is a shaman leading a 21st century Ghost Dance

    In many ways, Donald Trump is the Paiute shaman Wovoka. The phenomenon we are seeing in Donald Trump’s thus-far inexplicably successful run for the White House is reminiscent of the Ghost Dance in the late nineteenth century. At a time when Native Americans had been subjugated by the U.S. government and most had lost all hope, a time when conditions on Indian reservations were abysmal, a spiritual movement called | Read More »

    Sarah Palin has more to lose than Trump the ‘deal maker’

    Sarah Palin’s decision to endorse Donald Trump is regrettable. A disappointment likely driven by the justifiable disdain the former governor of Alaska has toward political class Republicans. You know, those who not only threw her under the bus, but backed it up a few times to ensure that Palin’s vast, untamed potential was rendered little more than roadkill. But Palin sacrifices a lot of built | Read More »

    If you’re going to call me an extremist, do it for the right reasons

    If I had a nickel for every time I was called an extremist, I’d have a lot of nickels. Just this weekend I was told I have “extreme thoughts,” coming from a person who stands against those who disparage members of the community who act or think differently than others. Realizing that folks who throw around the extremist label are just repeating a narrative that has | Read More »

    Republican Party tagline through 2016: ‘We’re not them’

    Thirty-five days until the November election and the Republican Party has long since gone to ground. If we didn’t know better, we’d swear Boehner, McConnell and Co. had members locked in a basement somewhere deep within the U.S. Capitol — the federal witness protection program has nothing on the GOP when it comes to the art of disappearing. With polls indicating favorable results for the party on Nov. | Read More »

    Common Sense Dictates An Obama Defeat In November

    ‘Perhaps the sentiments contained in the following pages, are not YET sufficiently fashionable to procure them general favour; a long habit of not thinking a thing WRONG, gives it a superficial appearance of being RIGHT, and raises at first a formidable outcry in defense of custom.’ If one should step back and take an objective look at the 2012 presidential election, it would seem rather | Read More »
