Joe Biden: The Democrats’ Great White Dope
Hillary Clinton’s anticipated 2016 coronation ceremony has so far gone as disastrously as a Black Eyed Peas Super Bowl halftime show performed aboard the Hindenburg. As Hillary finds herself modeling prison orange pantsuits during the middle of a possible criminal investigation of her email practices, the façade of her invulnerability has crumbled to dust. Her prospects have faded so thoroughly that she now finds herself | Read More »
Dreadful Noise and Loathsome Silence
“And in the naked light I saw Ten thousand people maybe more. People talking without speaking, People hearing without listening, People writing songs that voices never share And no one dare Disturb the sound of silence.” Paul Simon and Art Garfunkel, of the eponymous folk music group, released “The Sound of Silence” in October 1964—the blessed year and month of my own birth—as part of | Read More »
Further Thoughts on the Trump/Ramos Flap
Last night I wrote a post on the bizarre Donald Trump presser last night that has gotten quite a bit of traction on social media. I wrote it immediately after watching the press conference and without the benefit of the full audio which has been made available today of Ramos’ comments. All I could hear at the time was Trump’s comments, which made it appear | Read More »
Donald Trump Got the Better of Jorge Ramos and the Media Knows It
Donald Trump threw Univision’s Jorge Ramos out of a press conference in Iowa yesterday. Ramos is a self-absorbed, self-righteous leftwing activist the media allows to act as a journalist. He is more agenda driven than the entire cast of MSNBC. The media is outraged!!! outraged!!! that Donald Trump threw the guy out — never mind that he let Ramos back in to ask questions. Trump | Read More »
Jeb Is Here To Save Us From The Yellow Peril
Jeb Has Nothing To Offer America Jeb has nothing to offer America. He has no original ideas, and he will appropriate anything that gets a popular buzz off of others regardless of how toxic the idea is and regardless of how nauseating the source. He leeches off the same elitist pig donor class as Hillary Rodham Clinton*. He copies his condescending Braham Socialism off of | Read More »
What is the point of you, John Kasich?
In listening to an interview John Kasich had with Sean Hannity, I was struck by what he clearly wants the Hannity audience to think is his message: I knew Ronald Reagan. I can’t recall a many sentences in which he didn’t use Reagan’s name (possibly in vain) to justify his candidacy, and only in passing (and upon Hannity’s insistence) did he even mention the Ohio | Read More »
The Awesome, Terrible Majesty of a Donald Trump Press Conference
Donald Trump just held a press conference prior to a speech in Iowa which was – and I say this without exaggeration – the most bizarre thing I have seen in a lifetime of following politics. It was at once an illustration of why the media fixates on him, and also why the other candidates in the race cannot deal with him. He opened the | Read More »
Trump’s Hispanic Voter Problem
Let’s say this right up front: one doesn’t have to be “soft” on illegal immigration to win Hispanic voters – and no bloc of voters is worth publicly embracing a disastrous policy or one that would be injurious to the nation as a whole. That having been said, things like tone and emphasis matter within the context of this complex debate, and the tone Trump | Read More »
Most ridiculous defense of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. EVER.
From the Huffington Post comes this story titled Out of Touch Punditry Should Get a Grip — Hillary’s Email Is Non-Story. It is, appropriately, written by a guy named Robert Creamer, aka Mr. Jan Schakowsky, who doesn’t seem to have done much with his life other than hang on the edge of politics. In fact, no one outside the chattering class — and right-wing true believers | Read More »
’50 livers a week’ and other tales of women’s health
Another video from Center for Medical Progress has dropped. This one was made possible by a California judge dismissing a temporary restraining order obtained by the fetal tissue brokerage, StemExpress. Not only does the video give a horrific inside view of the fetal tissue trade but it strongly suggests at least two violations of federal law are endemic. First, abortionists clearly are being instructed on | Read More »
Lois Lerner (AKA “Toby Miles”) and the Obama Administration’s Email Twilight Zone
In what can only be explained as a bizarre (and disturbing) turn of events, former top IRS official Lois Lerner had not one, but at least two, secret personal email addresses.
While Lerner was overseeing the IRS department that was targeting conservative groups for their political views, she was using secret, private email accounts – under an assumed alias – to conduct official business. Sound familiar?

This is The Single Most Amazing Thing About Donald Trump’s Supporters
Donald Trump leads in the polling averages by about 22%. In some individual states he is higher. In some he is lower. Nationally, Trump hit a ceiling of about twenty-five percent and has trended down from there. But, he is still in the lead. I have noticed a trend with Trump’s supporters and it is the single most amazing thing about his supporters. They recite | Read More »
Congressional Republicans To Keep Organ Harvesting Alive and Babies Dead
Congressional Republicans are coming up with every excuse imaginable to avoid having to defund Planned Parenthood. Right now they’re going with the “let’s investigate” card. They think that if they just probe deeply enough they’ll have enough ammunition to attack the Democrats. Yes, that would be the exact same Democrats who have seen the same videos everyone else has seen and decided it is no | Read More »
Rand Paul and the Kentucky GOP: Bribery or Blackmail?
It looks like the long-running saga between Rand Paul and the Kentucky GOP has at long last come to an end. For those who don’t know, Rand Paul has been struggling for quite a long time to get around a (somewhat silly) Kentucky law that prevents him from being on two different ballots at the same time, thus effectively preventing him from running for the | Read More »
North Dakota Gov. Jack Dalrymple’s retirement puts Sen. Heidi Heitkamp in quite the pickle.
Heidi Heitkamp is faced with a tricky political problem in North Dakota that she’ll probably not be allowed to get right.
