Federal Judge Strikes Down DC Concealed Carry Law
The District of Columbia is a corrupt and lawless place, especially where it comes to guns. Again and again the District’s gun laws get struck down, and the city just passes an ordinance in its place that is slightly reworded but equally unconstitutional. And so gun owners in the district seeking to exercise their Second Amendment rights live in perpetual fear about what is and | Read More »
The GOP Really Is Dead: Voters Prefer Donald Trump Over Paul Ryan To Lead The Party
It’s been a good run. I am at a point however, where I can no longer be part of a party that thinks Donald Trump is a “leader.” If the GOP electorate is so petulant as to believe that a man who suffers from some kind of sociopathic narcissism is the best person to “lead” the party, then what’s the point of sticking around? The | Read More »
Todd Akin Probably has some Ideas about Where Vichy Republicans can Shove their Calls for “Unity”
With the notable exceptions of Paul Ryan and Ben Sasse, most Republicans are either lining up behind Trump or staying mum for now. The stated reason is usually “He’s better than Hillary,” a remarkably silly (and false) argument that Erick nicely detonated earlier this morning. Still, even if you grant that Trump is better than Hillary, that’s not exactly a persuasive argument for endorsing him, | Read More »
Just how bad can it get for Donald Trump in November?
Recently we’ve had the Great Overcorrection going on. People who, like me, underestimated Trump’s ability to win GOP primaries*, are rushing to say that of course he can win the general election. After all, the reasoning goes, they said he can’t in the primaries! Therefore he can win anything! But no, it’s bad. And here’s how bad it can get.
Poll: Trump Supporters More Likely to Self-Identify as Racist
This is not exactly news to anyone who has spent more than about five minutes on Facebook or Twitter in the last year, but Trump’s supporters are more likely to self-identify as racist, and a new poll proves it. Now, this is not a matter of saying, they say and think things that most reasonable people would agree are racist, this is a matter of | Read More »
Donald Trump Flimflams GOP. He Is NOT Creating Millions Of New Voters
One of Donald Trump’s recurring claims is that he is creating millions of new voters which will put Democrat states in play. Like everything else Trump says, this claim is pure bullsh**

This Anti-Trump Ad Is Brutal And This Is Just The Start
We are at the start of the general election campaign and Donald Trump has given Democrats in the last 10 months alone a crap ton of material to use against him. After what we have seen I cannot entirely discount a Trump win in the general but it is very unlikely. Given that Trump never seems to be able to shut his mouth and has | Read More »

Hillary Clinton Is Finally Taking Bernie Sanders Seriously

Donald Trump Should Select Sarah Palin as his VP
Donald Trump’s Vice Presidential pick has been the hot topic du jour since Trump wrapped up the nomination two weeks ago in Indiana. Personally, I think that the entire thing is a show staged for the benefit of the press, since there is only one obvious choice for Donald Trump’s running mate: former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. In fact, if he nominates anyone else, the | Read More »
How the GOP Leadership Is Making the Same Mistake That Gave Us Defeat In Vietnam
In 1965, one man had the chance to change history and prevent a no-win US war in Vietnam. He didn’t. His failure should be an object lesson for Paul Ryan, Reince Priebus, and anyone else who thinks Donald Trump can be made not insane.

Ben Sasse: “Core Republican voters are dying.”
Speaking to the American Enterprise Institute today after a tumultuous weekend Nebraska GOP convention, Ben Sasse sounded a lot like a man who was giving up on the GOP. He blasted the party for not having ideas that solved modern problems and noted that conventions like the one that had just condemned him were bickering about issues that average voters did not care about.

Video Finally Answers Age-Old Question “What If Meat Eaters Acted Like Vegans?” and Goes Bonkers Viral
I saw this on Facebook and I died. I’m dead now and writing to you from the afterlife. It’s pretty cool here. But there’s not enough chairs. Anyway, this video was posted nine hours ago and already has over 11 million views. It may not be vegan, but it’s sure as heck viral. Lost it at “that’s my food’s food.” It seems amusing but it’s | Read More »
