Chris Matthews: Ted Cruz “operates below the level of human life”
I kid you not. I did not make up that quote. I’ve really given up trying to figure out how Chris Matthews keeps his job, and of course, it is not much of a coincidence that this happened on Scarborough’s show considering he is obviously in the bag for Donald Trump.

Which of These Excuses for Hillary’s Struggles is Stupider?
There’s a very simple and obvious reason for Hillary’s struggles on the campaign trail this year: she’s a terrible candidate. She’s an uninspiring and boring public speaker, she’s prickly with the public and the press, and she’s trying to win a Democratic primary with a message that’s centered in realism. Additionally, she has a lengthy and very public history of dishonesty, self-dealing, and duplicity, and | Read More »

Most of our attention is on the Republican race moving south, but the Democrats are doing the same thing. Bernie Sanders has competed well with Hillary Clinton in two rural, northern, white states. But as the race moves to South Carolina, at least two of those attributes change, and that leads us to how I expect Hillary Clinton to start winning states convincingly.
Fiorina’s Candidacy Is a Win Because She Stood In Contrast to “Victim” Hillary
Carly Fiorina ended her bid for the White House on Wednesday, after a dismal placing in the New Hampshire primary, but she made her mark as a presidential contender in a way no one else before her had done.

Except Carly. Maybe. First of all, the casualties: Both Christie and Fiorina are out. That’s the main shake-up. But there is also karma to deal with. After all, Bernie got | Read More »
