Dear Cruz and Rubio: Don’t Make Me Turn This Car Around
You know what I have really gotten sick of? The ridiculous petty bickering between Cruz and Rubio as the two of them jockey to be the last guy standing to take on Trump. They are both operating from the unproven (and likely erroneous) assumption that they can duke it out forever without taking on Trump in the process, and that whenever the voters have sorted | Read More »

Ridiculously Hilarious: MSNBC’s Mitchell Gets Bad Case of the Vapors Over Cruz Ad Mocking Hillary
Or should I say “Hilariously Ridiculous? You be the judge. I missed this earlier, but lucky for me The Right Scoop didn’t. This is absolutely hilarious. Andrea Mitchell was on MSNBC’s Morning Joe this morning and her reaction to the Cruz “Office Space” campaign ad is … well it’s priceless. I’ll be honest with you, I love his clip. I do. I’m a This Clip | Read More »
Donald Trump’s God Problem
Donald Trump has a problem with God. Or more specifically, he has a ‘God problem.’ At least when it comes to voters in South Carolina, for whom Christian faith is often a requirement in a public official. This is simply the reality of the state, not a judgment on religion. But Donald Trump is not credible when it comes to God. At least, not to | Read More »

John Kasich Lies About God [WATCH]
Politicians tell a lot of whoppers, but some are obviously more blatant or galling than others. In John Kasich’s case, he doesn’t think small and goes straight for the top, as part of a smear against his opponents and a lie about himself. Take a look: First, this article from the Wall Street Journal, hilariously titled ““Kasich: I’m a Conservative, But I Won’t Play the | Read More »

Watercooler 02/12/16 Open Thread: Selling your soul, San Bernardino, Reality Check, Best NH reaction.
As the work week comes to a close I can’t help but wonder what did we really learn from the past five days. For me I learned the people of New Hampshire are down right kooky.

Louisiana’s Democrat Governor Threatens College Football Over Taxes
Last night, a Democrat was on TV and pretty much threatened to ruin everything… and surprisingly, it’s not Hillary Clinton or Bernie Sanders I’m referring to. Louisiana’s newly-seated Democratic governor, John Bel Edwards, gave an address to the state calling for new taxes to be passed by the state legislature. If he does not get those tax increases, then it will mean no college football | Read More »
John Kasich’s Campaign Strategy is Insane
The John Weaver-led campaign strategy of John Kasich has at no point ever had any plan other than “win New Hampshire.” Kasich did not accomplish that, or even come particularly close. In fact, Kasich got almost exactly the amount of support that the John Weaver-led Jon Huntsman campaign did in 2012, and Huntsman dropped out immediately following New Hampshire. However, with a more muddled (and crowded) | Read More »
We all knew this candidate was taking cues from the Nixon administration
Republicans have pretty thoroughly repudiated Richard Nixon by this point. We’re less friendly with China, we’re less friendly to creating new agencies like EPA, and we sure aren’t breaking into Democrat offices. Importantly, starting with Ronald Reagan, and continuing with George W. Bush, we recognized that when we face ideological actors, sometimes Realpolitik doesn’t have all the answers. So it turns out the Democrats are | Read More »
