Ted Cruz in South Carolina: Commanders shouldn’t worry about “gluten-free MREs”
Now that the GOP race has moved out of the left-wing northeast, where Donald Trump shined, Ted Cruz is back in motion, getting bold when speaking to crowds in South Carolina. Like fellow conservative Marco Rubio, who’s also showing gains in the state, Ted Cruz is making it clear that if he were President, America would have a stronger military ready to keep our country | Read More »

This is the Stupidest, Most Hypocritical Op-Ed Ever Written
You expect Democrats to be dishonest, and you kind of expect them to try to score political points off the SCOTUS vacancy caused by Antonin Scalia’s untimely death. However, this op-ed by alleged pederast Harry Reid in the Washington Post is the most amazingly and hilariously hypocritical (and stupid) thing possibly ever written. The basic gist is that the guy who pretty much invented the | Read More »

Trump: Ok, I lied when I said Bush lied.
It always amuses me when anyone pretends Donald Trump’s flip-flopping only takes place over a long timeline. As though he forever ago changed his mind on a lot of issues and has been consistent ever since. The truth is he is a serial flip-flopper who constantly adjusts his position to fit whatever particular conversation he’s having at the moment. If he gets flustered enough, he | Read More »
ISIS WMD attack in Iraq against Kurds. You know: the place without WMDs.
Hey! Somebody confirmed that the WMDs that Donald Trump told us George W. Bush lied about existing in Iraq… existed. In Iraq. And got used against our allies.

Trump Campaigns Like A Twitter Troll
The Donald, behaves just like the Twitter Trolls you have to block because attempting to engage them in a civil discussion is futile. When presented with facts that prove a Twitter Troll wrong they just reply with inflammatory responses usually in the form of an insult or name calling.

The EPA Isn’t Handling Its Business – But Insists On Man-Handling Ours
I have a (somewhat tongue-in-cheek) rule for federal government departments, agencies, commissions and boards: Barring a Constitutional amendment, if a bureaucracy was created after 1800 – it shouldn’t exist. The Founding Fathers who wrote the Constitution – were by 1800 thoroughly implementing it. If they didn’t yet have the federal government doing something – the federal government wasn’t to be doing it. So unless a | Read More »

South Carolina Must Eliminate Either Rubio or Jeb
Neither of these candidates wants to hear this right now, but if Donald Trump wins South Carolina by double digits, then South Carolina has to be the end of the line for whichever one of them finishes behind the other. There’s a decent chance that Trump may have mortally wounded himself with his 9/11 truther antics over the weekend, so maybe he finishes second place, | Read More »
Hillary Clinton Doesn’t Just Bark Like a Dog, She Barks JUST LIKE a Dog! (Seriously. It’s Uncanny.)
I’m not even sure what to say here. Tonight, Hillary Clinton was at an event in Reno and, well, this happened. Yeah I, uh, added the Mitt Romney part. I had to. Seth Mandel predicted it. Here is Hillary’s barking in context. (That was a cool sentence to type just now.) Hey I’m sure whatever the heck point she was trying to make was funny. | Read More »
Four New Polls Show Rubio Catching Cruz in South Carolina
We’ve been waiting for some post-New Hampshire polling in South Carolina, and we just got a blizzard of it dropped on us all at once. We have one from SC House GOP, one from Republican firm Gravis, one from garbage pollster ARG, and one from possibly fake pollster PPP. Two of the four (SC House GOP and PPP) were taken after Saturday’s debate, but they | Read More »
Trump: You Leave My Sister Out of This Campaign. Anyway, Back to Jeb Bush’s Brother.
Earlier today, Donald Trump at his press conference angrily denounced Ted Cruz for bringing his sister into the campaign. You can watch the whole thing here, including his impassioned plea, “My sister has nothing to do with me!” Trump has a point. What sort of scumbag would bring a candidate’s sibling into a campaign, just because that candidate praised their sibling earlier on in the | Read More »

Is This Ted Cruz Claim about Marco Rubio True?
I’m a huge fan of Ted Cruz and I believe that pretty much everything he’s said about Trump is true. In the current mud-slinging fight between Cruz and Rubio, which is diminishing both and distracting from the threat of Trump, the issues are somewhat less clear. A clip of Ted Cruz attacking Marco Rubio is making the rounds on twitter (HT Phil Kerpen). In it, Cruz made | Read More »
