ABC News/Washington Post poll: Trump most likely to win AND has a great personality
As if in answer to my colleague, Leon Wolf’s post, there is a new ABC News/Washington Post poll and its findings are… ummm…. interesting (full PDF here): Donald Trump leads the Republican presidential field in the latest ABC News/Washington Post poll, not only in vote preferences but in expectations as well -– a remarkable feat for the non-politician who’s surprised the GOP establishment with his staying power | Read More »
Why is the broadcast lobby palling around with Communists?
The National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) is one of my least-favorite industry lobby groups. They claim to support issues like “Protecting the Rights of Journalists,” opposing “advertising restrictions,” and supporting a “competitive marketplace,” but in practice they’re purely a rent-seeking body, completely integrated with the regulatory-industrial complex. There’s no easier way to see this than looking at NAB’s plans to engage with broadcasters in Cuba. | Read More »
Joe Biden calls himself a liar
Other than Joe Biden’s tendency to grope random women who are not his wife in public settings Get More: Comedy Central,Funny Videos,Funny TV Shows and make wildly inappropriate and offensive comments, his stock in trade has always been the lie. He was run out of the Democrat presidential primary in 1988 over appropriating the early life of British Labour Party leader, Neil Kinnock, as his | Read More »
Kim Davis Should Have Declared Rowan County a Sanctuary City
Let me say right off the bat that I don’t agree with what Kim Davis did. However, I found the hand wringing by Democrats and the media over her actions to be completely disingenuous and hypocritical. As many others have pointed out, Democrats have had no problem with county clerks who have refused to, say, issue gun licenses in compliance with court order. Nonetheless, Democrats | Read More »
A Serious Question for the Trump Supporters
I have a serious question for the Trump supporters, and I hope they will be able to answer it, at least to themselves. It is a question that every supporter of every candidate should be able to answer if they consider themselves a thinking voter instead of a mindless, drooling sports fan. The question is this: What, hypothetically, would Trump have to do or say | Read More »
Paul Ryan Uses His Leverage To Drive A Hard Bargain
The word has gone out tonight after Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) N/A% met with the House Freedom Caucus, as part of a tour of a number of the key House caucuses: Ryan will take the Speaker job after all, despite his many protests against wanting the job – but only if his enumerated conditions are met, including among other things agreement by | Read More »

Hey, Straight White Man? You Look Like a Rapist.
If the world were actually how liberals portrayed it to be, none of us would go outside. I certainly wouldn’t. Just the idea of a pervasive “rape culture” in the U.S. should be enough to keep women inside their homes, taking online courses for higher education instead of subjecting themselves to rape camps known as universities. But as we know, women flock to universities. They | Read More »
Ryan’s Hope: A Soap Opera About Paul Ryan’s Indecision
“There are houses full of sorority sisters on great campuses within the SEC who have less drama within them than Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) N/A% has as one man.”Good grief, Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) N/A% is a one man soap opera. First he doesn’t want it. Then he still doesn’t want it. Then he kinda, sorta, maybe wants it. | Read More »
Alan Grayson drags Patrick Murphy hard to the Left on Social Security.
Moral of the story: when a Democrat tells you that he or she is a liberal, the Democrat is telling you the truth. And when a Democrat tells you that he or she is a moderate or conservative, the Democrat is telling you a liiiiiieeeeee. As you’ll discover, the second that the lie becomes too awkward to maintain.

Democrats and GOP Senator Mark Kirk team up to block ‘sanctuary cities’ law
This is what having a GOP majority and gutless, go-along-to-get-along leadership in the Senate gets you. Senate Democrats on Tuesday blocked a Republican-backed bill that would crack down on so-called sanctuary cities by threatening to withhold funds to local governments that don’t cooperate with federal immigration officials. The bill failed on a 54-45 vote. It needed 60 to advance. The Stop Sanctuary Cities Act became | Read More »
Jim Webb Could Shake Up the Race as an Independent
Jim Webb never had a prayer of making noise as a Democrat. Quite frankly, he’s completely out of step with modern Democratic voters, who are either committed to winning the White House (and thus are with Hillary) or are committed to the stupid things they think and believe (and thus are with Bernie Sanders). As a Republican, Jim Webb would likewise have had no chance | Read More »
Sometimes Juan Williams can make your nose bleed
I suppose it is a good thing that Juan Williams is still gainfully employed. He is sort of an object lesson that you don’t have to have either knowledge of or interest in what you are writing about in order to make a damned good living doing it. Is the Freedom Caucus moving the United States toward a European-style coalition government? At the moment, the | Read More »
Jim Webb drops out and mutters vague threats of independent run
Well, he is a candidate and we are a political site so we would be remiss if we failed to note that Democrat Senator Jim Webb has suspended his campaign: Jim Webb, the longshot Democratic presidential candidate, may run as an independent, his campaign said in an email to reporters on Monday evening. The former Virginia senator, who complained last week about not having enough | Read More »
