And it’s going to be the funniest article you’re going to read all day. To paraphrase Douglas Adams, she wrote it for the Guardian in order to relentlessly get the record wrong on a couple of key points involving the rising Weinergate scandal, starting with trying to pretend that anyone with a triple digit IQ is taking seriously the conspiracy theory that the whole thing was a fake. And it only gets better from there, for given values of ‘better': apparently, reporting on somebody taking a picture of his genitals and sending it to a coed is sexual harassment against women.

Apart from one criticism of Kasich on Medicaid expansion, Bush stayed focused on the prize, and came out the clear winner. Unlike the | Read More »
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES This was amazing. John Dickerson is supposed to be the debate moderator and instead he starts getting into a debate with Ted Cruz regarding the appointment of Supreme Court justices during an election year.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES Tonight, the remaining GOP candidates will take the stage once more and debate on (hopefully) the issues that really matter.
