Yesterday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-FL) 92% referred to Hillary Clinton as “yesterday’s candidate.” It is a theme he can use about Jeb Bush too as he tries to pivot. Rubio, like Bill Clinton in 1992, is campaigning on a bridge further into the 21st Century. As he does so, along with the other Republicans, Hillary “Madam Yesterday” Clinton is going to keep | Read More »
Tech at Night: Republicans move to stop the picking of winners and losers
Picking winners and losers in the marketplace is a common theme in the Obama era, and Republicans want to put a stop to it. Marsha Blackburn has a bill to quit picking favorites in Radio and close up some copyright ‘loopholes’ (really just favoritism) in the current law. Meanwhile efforts are underway to block Obama’s plan to regulate the Internet misleadingly named ‘Net Neutrality’.
So A Clinton Walks Into Chipotle
Manager Charles Wright at Chipotle wasn't aware clinton was There till I called him.

Hillary Needs a Man
One of my first thoughts upon hearing the (not surprising) news that Hillary Clinton is officially in the running for the presidency was: “She wouldn’t have gotten here without Bill.” It’s not as if they adore each other or anything. They clearly understand that they’re both one-half of a politically motivated duo whose role as a power couple won’t be ending any time soon. While | Read More »
Unions’ Pelosi-Like Pitch To Workers: You Have To Pass The Union To Find Out What’s In It…
In 2010, during the debate over the so-called Affordable Care Act (aka ObamaCare), then-House Speaker Rep. Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) 15% [D-CA] made the statement “you have to pass the bill so you can find out what is in it.” Within two weeks, employees at Boeing’s plant in North Charleston, South Carolina may* be voting to determine whether or not to become unionized | Read More »
“Police” Accidentally Shoot Unarmed Man in Tulsa
This is a pretty terrible story out of Tulsa. The incident occurred a couple of weeks ago when police were chasing an unarmed suspect on foot. The suspect in question had been caught and corralled by the police and was on the ground when he was shot. The official story by the Tulsa PD is that the officer in question meant to reach for his | Read More »
Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) 100% remains a conservative favorite in 2016. In 2012, the establishment backed his Senate opponent in Texas, then Lt. Governor David Dewhurst. The conservative grassroots backed Cruz and pushed him over the finish line. Cruz has since remained a favorite of the grassroots with a continually antagonist relationship with the Republican establishment. In 2010, [mc_name name=’Sen. Rand Paul | Read More »
Smart guys: Congress should go back to sleep and let Obama complete Iran deal
One of the consistent refrains from the foreign policy establishment is that Congress is somehow impeding the impending Iran nuclear weapons agreement and that said impediments are a bad thing. This idea seems to be rooted in the utterly unconstitutional idea that Congress has no role to play in shaping US foreign policy and that the president has something approaching plenary powers when making agreements. | Read More »

Resetting with Russia Did Wonders
As Hillary Clinton kicks off her campaign with vague promises of helping lift families out of despair and making America strong again, it is necessary for us to look back at her accomplishments in life. As such, perhaps it is time we put her accomplishments on a milk carton in the hopes that someone will find them. Of her numerous botches as Secretary of State, | Read More »
Your Laugh For the Day
To be fair, David Corn has been one of the Clinton critics from the left. But he will fall in line as she solidifies her nomination. That may mean, for him, that he turns his fire on the right and bites his tongue about Hillary, but it will happen. That is why I find this to be so funny. You and I both know the | Read More »
Road Tripping Across America: Hilarity With Hillary
“For the next 18 months, Hillary Clinton is going to be the Jim Henson of the political press. Her hand will be all the way up their collective rectum moving their lips to sing ‘It’s Not Easy Being Queen’.”I was wrong. I was convinced Hillary Clinton would not run for President. I assumed she’d be, in essence, the bullet proof vest of the Democratic Party. | Read More »
The Closing of the Sunday Show Mind
Bob Schieffer is retiring from CBS’s Face the Nation and with him the closing of the Sunday Show mind is complete. CBS, ABC, and NBC have long had Sunday morning news programming. I grew up watching David Brinkley hammer things out with Cokie Roberts, Sam Donaldson, and George Will. The real gold standard was Tim Russert. With Brinkley and Russert dead, Schieffer was kind of | Read More »
