It’s Caucus day in Iowa. Where is the Donald Trump Campaign?
DES MOINES, IA – One of the things that you know if you have ever worked for a Presidential campaign in Iowa is that you will get to know the people from the other campaigns. Iowa is a relatively small state with few population centers, and the voting choke points are well known and trafficked. You run into people from virtually all the other campaigns | Read More »
Here’s Why Ted Cruz will Beat Marco Rubio in Iowa Today
DES MOINES, IA – I went to events for both Marco Rubio and Ted Cruz yesterday. Rubio’s event was a very good size for a crowd in Cedar Rapids, IA, a little off the beaten path. Moreover, Rubio’s crowd was much more filled with undecided voters, and I talked to more than one voter who told me that they walked away convinced by what they | Read More »
Shocker Iowa poll shows a big shake up in Iowa
I’ve been saying all along that anything could happen in the Iowa polling during the last month. And, as it turns out, I was right. With two new polls out today, we’re seeing what looks like a very late breaking surge for one candidate. What once was a Donald Trump vs Ted Cruz race, might now be a three-way contest with Marco Rubio. And in | Read More »
Wrong Side of History: Iran Awards Medals For Capture of American Sailors
In mid-January, just before the President’s final State of the Union address, Iran took American sailors captive, forced them to their knees at gunpoint, and took propaganda photos and videos while rooting through their belongings and downloading data from their military phones and equipment. About this incident, the typical media and democrat response was a great big “ho-hum.” John Kerry praised Iran for doing such | Read More »

On Eve Of The Caucus, Read How Donald Trump Ripped Off An Iowan Using Trump University
The irony of Donald Trump’s campaign is that he is finding support largely among middle class white men, many of whom are working but worried about their jobs. Others are doing work they normally don’t, just to pay the bills. Still others are concerned about the economy with respect to immigration. It’s easy to debate these fears. I’d say the fears of a lack of | Read More »
PROOF: Crazy Trump Fans Are Crazier Than Even Crazy Obama Fans
Earlier today, RedState’s Kimberly Ross asked if Trumpmania and Obamania were different. She focused on substance. But I can answer the question on pure craziness. Sometimes, fans of a politician go nutballs. You don’t like to admit it, but it’s true. There are crazy Cruz fans. There are crazy Ron/Rand Paul fans. There are definitely crazy Obama fans. And there are, in huge, annoying, loud, | Read More »
Forget Obama Jesus, This Insane Future Velvet Painting Is EVERYTHING
At the request of the Powers That Be, I have to actually include something besides just an image here. HOWEVER, I do so under protest. Why would I need anything other than this picture?

Melissa Harris Perry Thinks Illegal Immigrants Are Slaves?
Melissa Harris Perry of MSNBC, of tampon earring fame, has a new concern. Her concern is that knocking on doors of illegal immigrants is essentially the revival of the Fugitive Slave Act, a law from 1850 that allows slave owners to recapture any runaway slaves. This is, of course, not the best moment in United States history, but it is something that happened. You see, if | Read More »

CEDAR RAPIDS, IA – Marco Rubio just left the stage at the Doubletree Hilton in Cedar Rapids, IA, but as I finish writing this piece, there are still about 200 people who are waiting for a chance to shake hands with Rubio personally and talk to him about the issues. Rubio spoke for about 45 minutes and even though I’m sure the campaign trail has | Read More »
Is Trumpmania Different Than Obamamania?
It’s apparent that one of the biggest aspects – if not the biggest – of this election cycle is the quick, unexpected rise of Donald Trump, his continued popularity, and the extreme enthusiasm that his followers possess. But is the fandom surrounding Donald Trump so different than that of Barack Obama? I don’t believe so. In fact, the similarities are striking, and should be problematic | Read More »

Donald Trump Goes To Church And Beclowns Himself
In an effort to convince Evangelicals that he is one of them, Trump attended church today in Council Bluff, Iowa, and while the edifice didn’t burst into flames, “my little cracker” gave Trump a bit of comeuppance.
