Hillary Clinton’s New Campaign Pitch: “Lower Your Expectations.” (VIDEO)
This is the first time this campaign season that I have felt like Hillary Clinton was in legitimate trouble. Bernie Sanders attended a campaign rally in Birmingham, Alabama yesterday.

Let’s Put an End to this Birther Nonsense about Ted Cruz
The past eight or so years should have proven conclusively that the various strains of birthers out there do not know about which they speak.

Sarah Palin Expected to Continue Endorsing Sarah Palin Today
Donald Trump has been teasing a “major endorsement” that he is scheduled to release today in Iowa, and the rampant speculation is that it will be Sarah Palin’s.

I would not have thought it would be possible to top the Right to Rise ad making fun of Marco Rubio’s boots (and also all the suckers who donated to Jeb Bush Super PACs), but Rand Paul is sure trying.
