    Ben Carson Has Done the Country an Enormous Favor

    Ben Carson Has Done the Country an Enormous Favor

    As a movement, we haven’t always been great at separating the heroes from the hucksters. Too often, we have allowed people who got about 15 minutes of fame running for office (and usually losing) to become completely unjustified celebrities who hang around forever hawking bad books and embarrassing themselves and their followers in the process. For instance, Mike Huckabee had a show on Fox for | Read More »

    Sorry Herr Trump, Even Trash Sites like Breitbart Have a Right to Report the News

    Sorry Herr Trump, Even Trash Sites like Breitbart Have a Right to Report the News

    I don’t think it’s a tremendous surprise that the editorial staff of this website and certain of the writers at Breitbart do not get along. I don’t think it’s worth getting into all the backstory, just suffice it to say that from my perspective, if I worked at Breitbart, I would figure out a cover story for where I drew my salary so that I | Read More »

    Winners and Losers from Tonight’s CNN/Salem Debate

    Winners and Losers from Tonight's CNN/Salem Debate

    Holy cow, what a boring debate. Donald Trump looked like he was on Xanax the whole night, Marco Rubio wasn’t determined to insult him at every turn, and all the candidates already knew what all the other candidates were going to say. The result was the first debate on the Republican side that was actually kind of hard to watch all the way through. Not | Read More »

    New Poll Shows that Cruz Would Likely Beat Trump Heads Up in California

    New Poll Shows that Cruz Would Likely Beat Trump Heads Up in California

    One of the assumptions a lot of people – including me, I might add – have made about the state of the race after next Tuesday is that Donald Trump would likely beat Ted Cruz in a heads up matchup in California. Which is silly, really, and I don’t know what I was thinking. People assume that since California overall is liberal, then the GOP | Read More »

    Trump Campaign Calls Breitbart Reporter a Liar

    Trump Campaign Calls Breitbart Reporter a Liar

    Well, the slow boiling feud between the Trump campaign and the digitial division of the Trump campaign (aka Breitbart) seems to have escalated a bit. Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields wrote a story earlier today describing her encounter with Trump’s thuglet campaign manager Corey Lewandowski, saying that hopefully the book was closed on the mater. The Daily Beast reported earlier today that Matt Boyle reached out to | Read More »

    Will Ted Cruz Receive his First Senate Endorsement Today?

    Will Ted Cruz Receive his First Senate Endorsement Today?

    After a false start earlier in the week when Cruz was reported to be on the verge of announcing the endorsement of four United States Senators, a new report is circulating that Cruz will, in fact, get the endorsement of at least one United States Senator this afternoon. It should probably come as no surprise that the endorsement is reported to be from Utah Senator Mike | Read More »

    Donald Trump Isn’t the Only Candidate Courting the Moron Vote

    Donald Trump Isn't the Only Candidate Courting the Moron Vote

    First off, I considered making the title of this piece less offensive to Donald Trump voters, but I am told that you people like folks who are offensive for the sake of being offensive, that you reject “political correctness” and appreciate someone “telling it like it is.” So really, I hope you’ll appreciate the effort I’ve put in to speaking to you in a language | Read More »

    Kasich Admits He Did Not File Enough Valid Signatures to Appear on Pennsylvania Ballot

    Kasich Admits He Did Not File Enough Valid Signatures to Appear on Pennsylvania Ballot

    A couple days ago we reported that team Kasich was facing a court challenge to their ballot access in Pennsylvania. Specifically, the plaintiff in the case alleged that Team Kasich failed to file the required 2,000 valid signatures to appear on the ballot in Pennsylvania. The Kasich campaign filed 2,184 signatures, but the plaintiff alleged that well over 184 of those signatures were invalid and/or | Read More »

    Trump’s Campaign Assaults Female Reporter: “Well, We Didn’t Know She was from Breitbart.”

    Trump's Campaign Assaults Female Reporter: "Well, We Didn't Know She was from Breitbart."

    So the political world has been abuzz over the last day or so with the news that Trump campaign manager Corey Lewandowski manhandled Breitbart reporter Michelle Fields. Most people have focused on the servile deference Breitbart has given the Trump campaign afterwards, as though that were some surprising or newsworthy item. Personally, I do not care what Breitbart does, since it has been obvious for | Read More »

    The GOP Needs Two Heroes

    The GOP Needs Two Heroes

    The greatest heroic story in the history of the world is the story of Jesus Christ. One of the fascinating things about the story that has reshaped the entire world and been the most important transformative force in history is that it isn’t a story about a hero in the traditional sense of the word. In the Bible, Jesus did not come with a flaming | Read More »

    We’re All Screwed

    We're All Screwed

    I’ve been telling everyone for weeks that there’s no reason for despair – Donald Trump can be beaten, or at least prevented from reaching 1,237. I honestly haven’t felt a bit of despair personally… until now.     Meghan McCain shocks with sudden endorsement of Cruz https://t.co/UPwOd5HZZS pic.twitter.com/kPiziixv7Q — Gabby Morrongiello (@gabriellahope_) March 9, 2016 Welp. If you assume, as I do, that Ted Cruz | Read More »

    Can Cruz Beat Trump Anywhere Next Tuesday?

    Can Cruz Beat Trump Anywhere Next Tuesday?

    This afternoon, I sat down with John Brodigan of EveryJoe.com and Noah Rothman of commentary to discuss the upcoming Super Tuesday 3 primaries, the possible consolidation of the Republican field, and Ted Cruz’s chances next Tuesday. Take a listen as three establishment hacks break down the race.

    Donald Trump says he’s the most Presidential Candidate since Abraham Lincoln

    Donald Trump says he's the most Presidential Candidate since Abraham Lincoln

    It’s hard to know where to even start with the delusionally narcissistic things Donald Trump says. The latest hit came last night when he was giving his post-results press conference. He was asked about the ad that shows him using repeated profanity during the course of his rallies and questioned his ability to be presidential. Here’s how Trump responded: Trump: I think it’s better than any | Read More »

    Ted Cruz Accomplished Exactly What he Wanted to Yesterday

    Ted Cruz Accomplished Exactly What he Wanted to Yesterday

    The news media today is pushing the headline about Trump winning Michigan and Mississippi because that’s what suits their desired outcome: Trump winning the Republican nomination. However, the reality is that Ted Cruz accomplished everything he wanted to do yesterday. I’m not just saying that as an after the fact justification either. Yesterday, before the votes started, I said that Ted Cruz wanted to do | Read More »

    The Media’s Republican Primary Analysis is Stuck in 1988

    The Media's Republican Primary Analysis is Stuck in 1988

    If you shake any random tree these days, a pundit who wants to tell you that the Republican primary is over will fall out of it. Alas, this is even true of many long-time conservative and/or Republican pundits. What these alleged experts in the media are missing is the fundamental way the Republican primary electorate has changed since 1988. Or, heck, since 2008. On the | Read More »
