Rubio Faces the Expectations Monster
I remember about fifteen years ago I was watching an interview with legendary Michigan State basketball coach Tom Izzo about whether he ever felt pressure on his job, even though he was pretty much personally responsible for turning Michigan State into a perennial powerhouse. I’m sure Izzo wasn’t the first person to make this point, but he was the first person I ever heard say it. He | Read More »

Cable news should use 3D animated violence, | Read More »
Brad Pitt And Angeline Jolie Had Custom Handguns Made And They’re Pretty Awesome
Brad Pitt, aside from being a very underrated actor, is one of the new people in Hollywood that doesn’t rail about gun violence while at the same time, making movies where he does nothing but shoot people. His wife, Angelina Jolie, while doing a lot of humanitarian work, and certainly not the conservative her Dad, Jon Voight is, doesn’t say much politically and reportedly doesn’t | Read More »
OK, I Changed My Mind, THIS Endorsement Is THE Game Changer!!
So first I thought this endorsement was a big boom (for Ted). Then I was convinced there was nothing bigger than this un-endorsement. Then Kasich got this amazing counter endorsement. But those were all just the warmup. THIS .. THIS is the one. If he had to choose between Cruz and Trump for the Republican nomination, Carter chuckled, “I think I would choose Trump, which | Read More »
Paul Ryan on President Obama: Don’t Feed The Troll
House Speaker Paul Ryan spoke today to the Heritage Action Conservative Policy Summit to lay out his vision for the GOP in 2016. Let me translate his remarks for you, starting after his standard thematic intro about being “a Jack Kemp, Ronald Reagan conservative.” “Let’s cut to the chase: There are a lot of people hurting in America right now. They don’t think the promise | Read More »
Trump Nominated for Nobel Peace Prize…Just Like Obama!
Donald Trump, the politically unaccomplished king of nasty, insulting, junior high-type behavior, has been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Yes, you read that correctly. It is yet another example of how eerily similar Barack Obama and Donald Trump are to each other. Both have created a cult of personality where substance is lacking and emotion rules the day. Remember how absurd it was that the brand | Read More »
Donald Trump Learned Nothing from Iowa
A reasonable person in the position of Donald Trump might have looked at what happened to him in Iowa and concluded that maybe a campaign ground game is at least sort of important after all, especially in small states. However, the Donald Trump campaign does not have a reasonable person in the position of Donald Trump; instead, they have Donald Trump in the position | Read More »

John Kasich Just Told the Most Ridiculous Lie of the Campaign Season
If there’s anything that has defined John Kasich on the campaign trail this year, it has been his nearly constant invocation of God Almighty to bolster his unpopular policy positions. By far the most popular reason for John Kasich to invoke God has been to defend his unilateral Medicaid expansion, which indefensible as a matter of conservative policy. Since Kasich doesn’t have a good fiscal | Read More »
Hear Rush Limbaugh Call Marco Rubio A “Legitimate, Full-Throated Conservative” [AUDIO]
Very few people entered this election cycle with more street cred with conservatives across the country than Rush Limbaugh.

Has Donald Trump Already Decided to Run Third Party?
As far as I can tell, Donald Trump’s grieving process works more or less completely in the reverse order from what you would expect from a rational human being. Immediately after the event, Trump was more or less in acceptance mode, saying he was proud of finishing second, he loved the people of Iowa, he was going to come back and buy a farm there. | Read More »
