    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 »

    Ted Cruz Wants to Accomplish Three Things Today

    Ted Cruz Wants to Accomplish Three Things Today

    By all accounts, Ted Cruz had a great day on Saturday, scoring surprise wins over Trump in Kansas and Maine (by fairly comfortable margins), tying him in Louisiana, and narrowly losing Kentucky. Cruz narrowly closed the delegate gap with Trump and just as importantly increased the space between himself and the other non-Trump candidates. Today, Ted Cruz needs to do three things in order to keep | Read More »

    Ted Cruz Scores Major Mississippi Endorsement on Election Eve

    Ted Cruz Scores Major Mississippi Endorsement on Election Eve

    One of the remarkable things about the run Ted Cruz has compiled is that he has done it on the strength largely of state and local endorsements. We are of course getting word that that might be set to change tomorrow, but for now, Cruz has garnered a major Mississippi endorsement on the eve of the Mississippi primary: Governor Phil Bryant. “It’s time for Republicans | Read More »

    Flint Mayor: The Solution to our Crisis is Money

    Flint Mayor: The Solution to our Crisis is Money

    Obviously, what happened to the people of Flint, Michigan was a terrible tragedy and reflects failure of leadership up and down the line from the local to the state to the federal level. Naturally, the Democrats in charge of Flint have used the disaster to do the only thing they know to do, which is to ask for more taxpayer money – way more than | Read More »

    Two New Polls Show Cruz Pulling away from Rubio in Michigan

    Two New Polls Show Cruz Pulling away from Rubio in Michigan

    Whenever we talk about polls these days, we have to include a huge caveat – that caveat being that the polling has been really godawful in recent races. Just unmitigated garbage. So feel free to throw all this out and consider it not at all. That having been said, there are now two polls that show that Cruz is creating distance between himself and Rubio | Read More »

    Dear Cruz Supporters: Please Be Happier

    Dear Cruz Supporters: Please Be Happier

    Earlier this morning, I wrote a piece titled “It is Time to Unite Behind Ted Cruz. Right Now.” As you might have expected, the piece has generated quite a bit of reaction around the Internet. Somewhat insanely, the vast majority of the negative reaction has not been from supporters of either Trump or Rubio, but rather from supporters of Cruz himself. I think it’s probably | Read More »
